I'm a ROCK STAR!!!!!!!!

Or at least I feel like one! Seriously, do you see the stuff that CX sent to me? I am still in awe about this whole thing. I am overwhelmed and I just hope that I don't disappoint them. I am so thrilled to be a part of the CreativeXpress design team.

My "initial" design team goodie box consisted of: the Cricut Expression, Design Studio, and the Essential tools kit. Really a very nice gesture. I am itching to get started.

So I guess this is what it feels like to be on a wonderful design team. I can't believe I finally made it. Thank you so much CX! You Rock!

The Loot!

Out of the Dark, into the light.....

FINALLY!! Whew, after 11 days and 4 hours without power, we finally have it back. And now we are trying to get life back to normal. After living in the heat for several days we finally broke down and bought a generator. So for three days after that we lived on air mattresses in the garage. It really was not too bad. After all the generator ran the TV that we moved into the garage. Then last Sunday my parents got their power back so.......we moved in with them for five days. Now we are back home and I am so thankful that it was not worse. And tomorrow the boys start school back again. Since our part of town was so damaged they ended up missing 9 days of school!!

And can you believe without all the modern conveinences of today that my boys actually played and GOT ALONG!!!

PROOF, that they really DON'T NEED Power..

A Quick Update.........

Hurrican Gustav has come and gone, but.........he left a war zone in his path.

It seems in my part of town I will not have power until October. So, the family and I have temporarily relocated to my parents house. They do have power and internet. I will be around some, but since this is not my computer I will not be here quite as much as I like. Thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers. My house is basically undamaged, but there are 5-6 houses on my street that have trees on them. Big oak and pecan trees. So we are fortunate. However, the downed big trees are ontop of power lines which are attached to broken telephone poles. So it may be a while before we get things back to "normal". We are okay though. Glad to be back to "civilization"!
