we all have a right/animal instinct to defend ourselves...

i've made it! i've made it!
people hate me :).
i can't believe how i've been getting hate mails and comments.
i love the fact that people can voice their opinions and be honest,
but i hate the way they do it.
the anonymity is what gets me the most.

if you have something to say, then say it!
by all means.
but if you are saying something on a public forum
and you can't stand behind your words,
what kind of person hides behind a computer screen?
one who feels their opinion is invalid.
so i'll be happy to answer your mails and comments, so long as you sign them.
they will otherwise be ignored.

thank you.

i HATE when people have music on their blog that automatically plays when you open it.
*I* have music on my blog.

you want to be inspired?

BREANNE proclaimed me as "product-inspired" kind of scrapper, and it's true. although i get really inspired with new pics or magazines, i especially love new goodies!

so i saw a thread about "what's on your desk right now?" at 2PEAS and here's what's been on mine. isn't this exciting??! it's been spread out like that since i returned home from xmas vacation. i like looking at it. hehe.

then, i got a knockknockknock from the lovely UPS man!! i LOVE design team days!! this is from SCRAPBOOKING IN PARADISE and i know i'm biased... but seriously this store is mega-cool. they are the sweetest ladies in the industry and so generous and kind. if you're ever in the tampa/ st. pete area, you should totally head over there. seriously. here's the YUM that i got to make some v-day goodies which i will later share...

just breathe.

because it's unhealthy not to.
because everything is going to be okay.

i miss this girl mucho.

"when i'm a bullet shot out of a gun...

when i'm a firecracker comin' undone
when i'm a fugitive ready to run
all wild-eyed and crazy...
no matter where my reckless soul takes me,
baby you save me."

*2007 Resolutions*

i feel like resolutions are pointless sometimes.
like when you just say
"i resolve to get skinny and stop biting my nails and save money."
like... what a joke.

so instead, this year, i'm going to set up a plan.
a specific set of goals, month by month.
and hopefully they will inspire you too.

i know i'm not perfect, and things come up.
things change.
piece by piece, i will make my goals possible.

stay tuned.

scrapbooking kits: %)&@#&(^$)(#%&(*@#!)

seriously? wtf.

i have become obsessed with a few select kits lately, especially because one of my resolutions is to stop spending all my money on scrapbook stuff. my credit card bill is so run up, i don't have a job, and no money in the bank. cool. also, kits are *sooo* fun. they are full of such greatness, and so inspirational to see all of the products together in one box. i love them. OH also... they post the galleries of their design team members actually using the kits, and it always gives me so so much inspo.

the "wtf" part is because they are SOO dang hard to get. it's like meeting the president. except i would rather have the kits.

so here's the story on my faves:

JENNI BOWLIN: this is the only kit i have subscribed to in the past, and i LOVE it. finally got another subscription today. also bought some of her exclusive products. you don't pay for a certain amount of months in advance... you just receive a kit for like $28 every month until you cancel. love that.
SCRAPOLOGIE: in the midst of e-mailing stacey back and forth trying to get my subscription to go through. january kit looks rad and i think i'm getting it :). buying a 3-month sub.
POPPY INK: wowww. this site just pisses me off. it's like the cutest thing ever with the best designers and gallery and i just can't get on the list. told mom i didn't have the clout (?)... teared up a bit too.
ZINGBOOM: wowza! january was their first kit and i think they are so awesome. was especially excited to see my FAVE scrapper over there on the DT. pay pal was acting up today when i tried to order february's kit... it better still be there tomorrow or you'll be seeing a lot more of this: *&^@^%#!(*@*)#!!! also.... i tried out for their design team and got an honorable mention! so i might be doing something special later on in the year :D :D.

some other fab kits i would recommend if you have an endless budget:
if anything, go on and check out their galleries. so cool.

met another fabulous inspiration...

how great is THIS girl? if you're not familiar with her stuff, click HERE.
you'll thank me!!

here are some pics of me and the beautiful Breanne:

happy holidays!

just a quickie to wish everyone a merry holiday season and a very happy and healthy new year from the fabulous:

have lots to share about my trip, and soo many pics taken with my new camera!

mental note...
some things i want to blog about when i have a minute later:
- meeting bre
- nyc
- kit search
- zingboom
- resolutions
- being home
- little bit of year in review
