So Jesse and I went out to look at our home for the first time and we LOOOOOOOVE it! It is absolutely perfect size for us and we can not wait to close as well as have all of our stuff brought into our home! Right after we did a walk through of the home, we went straight to Lowe's and orders top of the line washer and dryer with the whole steam thing in both! Which as much I dont like doing laundry, I'm so excited to use because now I can do my bedding instead of taking it to the dry cleaners and I can wash and dry Jesse's uniforms without making trips to get them done!! The little things make me excited :)

So as I are a few photo's of our new home!

the window toward the back of the house is our office/CRAFT space which will be decked out with IKEA furniture for my new craft space :D I'm so excited, i'm pretty sure i'm going shopping with MoMo at Madebymomo , we cannot wait to finally get together!

Standing at the end of the living room looking toward the front door and the dining room.

ANDDDDDD......holy cow im just about 65 followers!!!!!!! I'm so stinkin excited!! All your comments and subscribing makes me day! I love getting emails saying that I've received a new comment or seeing my follower's count going up!! So I will have a prize pack giveaway again. But once again, i'm in a tough time because I'm at my inlaws and Im nervous to go out alone because I dont know my way around. So next weekend, June 5th or 6th, i'll put a post about how to enter to win. By then, Jesse and I will be in the house and I know exactly where there is a Michael's by our new home!

Thank you again to everyone who has wished us much luck on our home! We appreciate it more than ya'll know!!

Jesse and I finally made it to Florida! We got here on Tuesday at about 4:30pm, caught up with my in-laws and than enjoyed a fun filled night out to dinner which also included Trivia Night. We didn't win but we definitely had a fun time! So now Jesse and I are relaxing and I think going out to explore the area here and look for appliances for our new home!!! We are going out to see it for the first time tomorrow so I'll be sure to try and post some new pictures!!

I just wanted to thank you all who kept me and Jesse in your thoughts for our long drive and congrats on the new house :) Hopefully we'll be making a trip to IKEA soon so that we can pick up new items for my scrap room!!!!!! **jumping with joy**

OK, we're heading out to lunch now! I'll be sure to keep everyone posted! Continue making you video's because I can access them from my blackberry but i also have Internet at my in laws.

Have a great memorial day weekend guys! We'll be BBQ and enjoying a parade!

Last post for a while.....

So today was a GREAT day and a very SAD day. Today, Jesse and I found out that the appraisal went through for the house so it is our's!!!! We have been waiting for this news for almost 3 weeks now!! We are so thrilled that we will have a home to be living in once we get down to Florida! No living in an apartment :D However, tonight I went over to my parents house to spend time with them. And after dinner, my mother began to cry because she had to leave with my sister for swim practice. Then my dad teared up and my sister was a mess which of course made me a mess. Thank god for Jesse keeping me distracted so i wouldnt be too upset and once i got home, i've just been keeping busy with packing to think about. I will definitely miss my family like crazy!!!! But I did film my last video early this morning when everything was peachy keen :D Hope ya'll enjoy it and check back in for updates on the whole move and hopefully i'll have a video up here in a few weeks in my new craft space in my new home :) Thanks you everyone for all your kind words and warm wishes!

Episode 7 - Just Because Ribbon Card

Hey Ladies,

The hubby and I have FINALLY had time to edit and post the new video. This week has been fun, sad, and crazy! On Sunday, the chicklets + 1 FINALLY were all together after 3 years [the boyfriends & hubby also joined the fun]! (these are the ladies that my blog was named after :D) It was so nice to see everyone again but I was really sad to say good-bye until they visit us in Florida. Yesterday, the hubby and I went and hung out with my BFF (and cake business partner) Evelyn and her fiance, Joe. The boys watched Avatar on Joe's new 3D TV, it was a bad idea cause Jesse wants one--lol! But Eve and I scrap booked and just talk until the movie was over and boys came to bug us. I was ok saying good bye until I got home and was really bummed out!! Any who, I'm trying to keep busy with packing and cleaning. I was just telling Jesse about how Alex won the giveaway and she was sweet enough to post it and my blog address on her blog {THANKS AGAIN ALEX!!} and he said that after I hit 100 followers, we should do a give away every month!!! What do y'all think about that?!?! He's been helping me a lot with some advice on how I could make my video's better and what to change on my blog. He says he likes to be "the hubby working behind the scene's". He's a sweetheart and been helping me not stress about all the house and move stuff.

So anyways, enough about me blabbering on about my life. Here is the video, and I really hope you guys like the card and will try it out!

Have a great week!!

Video Malfunction

Hey ladies,

So I'm a Bit frustrated tonight! I had filmed a video that would be posted tomorrow afternoon after the challenge was announced at MoMo's blog (since the card was made for it). However, I went over by a minute and after the editing that my husband does, it would be at about 12minutes and wouldn't upload to YouTube!!! So than I came home tonight and was making a video of a card I was creating for a friend to congratulate her on their new baby who is on the way, and than I realize when I'm done that my Flip camera ran out of space and turned off after only 3 minutes of recording!!!!! So needless to say, I gave up on trying to record anything today and maybe I'll do something Wednesday night!

Sorry ladies!

Sunshine Award

Hey ladies,

I hope that you had a great National Scrapbook Day!!! I'm sorry that I missed all the festivites but I did help out momo with her challenge so I felt a little bit part of all the fun! I was away this weekend for a surprise engagement party for my cousin and my other cousin's 1st holy communion. So we literally left saturday morning, party saturday night, church sunday morning and than back to my cousin's house for the party, and than drive back to jersey! So needless to say, Jesse, my mother, my sister, and I are pretty tired today!!! :D I did try to post something using my blackberry on Saturday but it did not go through so Im sorry this is late.

My great friend MoMo at MadebyMoMo awarded me and 4 other Amazing crafters this award and I need to do a few things as the recipient of the award. I need to award this to 5 other people and make a list of 10 things I like! The following are bloggers who I think def. deserve this award, i've been following them around for a bit and think they do great work!

1. Meighan -
2. Joy-
3. Tammy -
4. Christina-
5. Cristi-

Now 10 things that i like.....this is going to be hard :)
1. My husband, although he drives me nuts he is infact one of my bestfrinds
2. Link, my cat---he's kept me company while Jesse is away working late
3. My family, both immediate and extended, as well as my inlaws
4. Cooking
5. My Cricut
6. Actually all of my paper supplies
7. All of my customers at my job, who are more like friends to me!
8. All of my friends
9. The Beach
10. My soon to be new home, even though I havent physically seen it yet :)

I have created some videos for you ladies and my husband did an awesome time editing but it was 11 minutes and youtube wont let me load them for length :( so I'll have to redo them and post them for you. I also want to apologize in advance if this is the last post for a while. Like i have said before, my husband and I are moving due to him getting relocated and everything is going to get hectic soon with packing and moving and all this stuff. I'll try to keep you updated as often as possible, and maybe i'll make a few video's ahead of time and just upload them before the craziness happens! I want to thank you all for following!! As soon as I get 30 followers, I will be hosting a giveaway. If i dont do it right away, it will be due to the move, but as soon as we're up and running in our new house, it will be first priority!
