vacation plans

Life is getting back to normal after the schock of the accident has settled.... She's doing ok, very sore and tired still and lot's of pain in her shoulder. DH and I are very concerned it could be whiplash but appearantly we are the only ones there (probably bcause dh knows what it's like to have one ..) as the doctor and mom aren't too concerned.

I'm so happy with the slide show I received from our new photo shoot with Flo :D Oh my that is always so worth the money !

And now my fall holiday has already started and I have so many things I want to do I already know it's not all do-able.

  • I know I want to bake more cupcakes (that is do-able)
  • I want to purge the attic (hmmm I hope I can do a lot there, but need some help in that dept. unfortunately the ones who have offered help are allergic to my cats or recouperating from a car accidnet so I guess I'll have to see how that goes)
  • Continue downpricing most products in the store (that should work as I have been doing this everynight) and I'm already a long way and I hope this will be tempting for all my customers ;)
  • Write a lot of overdue cards (I love sending people cards and I should be able to do that)
  • Go to lego world with the kids (I have tickets so we are going, if anyone wants to join in let me know)
  • Plan a fun crop with friends SOON (haven't scrapped in ages :( ...)
  • Do some research on our Italy tips that lot's of friends have been giving us (but keep them coming if you have any LOL)

and... and.... well that should be enough for one week don't you think ?!

Miracles do happen

And boy there was one last friday !

My mother had a car accident, only 10 minutes from our house, due to a black out (probably due to wrong medication) she had. We were lucky there was an icu nurse at the scene who helped my mother and called me so she wasn't alone long. Bcause she had the black out she took a left turn without any notice and got hit by a car and stopped against a traffic sign. She was shipped off to the hospital, been checked, photographed and scanned and held overnight and now she's back home (this is the short version) :D

You will not believe it but besides being sore all over and a slight concussion she has nothing, NOTHING ! Now that is what I call a miracle ! (she can't believe it either after seeing the pics I took, lucky thing I did as she cannot remember a thing and how do you explain all that ...)

Me, I'm a wreck, been sleeping for 2 days, but over the worst shock ....

whaaaaaaatzzzz up

So it's been a while, I've had a bit of this weird flu thing that's going around and very busy trying to get some stuff more organized at home and in the shop inbetween the normal day life.

We've been making some changes on the MLS designteam blog and it looks even fabber if that is possible (just small changes here and there) and some new changes in the schedule as well. We've made ourselves a hyves group so we can connect with even more scrappers. And the newest dare is so fabulous, Dutch Idols LOL !!! I will be working on one this weekend.

We've been making some plans for our home, new exciting stuff and I have to do plenty of research for these. Starting with bathroom inspiration ! You see I would like to have a new bathroom but without tiles but paint on the walls, specialist paint or colored swimming pool paint. But I have a hard time finding pics for inspiration/tips/ideas, as I lost the magazine i saw it in. So if you know of pics online, or have experiences to share (or have the Ariadne at home with the beige/cream bathroom without tiles) plse let me know !!

Oh and speaking of tips, we're thinking of Italy. A ready set camping ground (no DH and I do not like tents ;) .... ) with a caravon or so would do fine but there are so many so we'd love to hear your fave spot/place so we can check it out.
I haven't been running pr to the gym but I've been taking streetdance classes ( yes I secretly want to dance like they do in Step up ;) and no I cannot ....) and they are so much fun. I recommend it to everybody bcause you get a work out without realizing it (trust me I have the sore muscles to prove it ...), have a lot of laughs and great music, it's over before you know it !

Bought myself this pretty bracelet to support pink ribbon, and the magazine ! How are you supporting Pink Ribbon this month ?

And this website was brought to my attention and I'm sending this little dutch boy some cards bcause he's pretty lonely and could use some cheering up!
And I've been making fun plans with friends to get together every month and have some baking fun, can't wait till next week girls so I can try my new mixer ....

Oh and would love it if the lurkers would say hi, so I can see who you are and check you out, I love to make new blogfriends !
Busy enough wouldn't you say ;)
