Here is another freebie for ya! All you have to do is leave comments for everything you download from Raks or my blog for everyone...everyone likes to see the comments. I have had like a hundred ppl download my country kitchen from the two places and not very many comments. Also...please send me a link if you use anything...I love to see it!

This is just a small freebie...a couple doodles: (scroll down through the blog to see if there are others still active)

> Here is the link

On the home front...pretty quiet weekend. Brandon (dh) spent the weekend getting ready for a leisure show he is doing next weekend. He is trying to get his own business going...home theatre--surround sound; plasmas; home cameras; you know...the technologically hip home. He had the boys for a while helping out...I got to scrap a bit. Got a new kit done for the element challenge prize at Raks:
I call it Masala Chai just reminds me of that...probably will become a full kit for sale soon:

I decided that I am not in enough pictures/layouts. Chase asked me why I wasn't in them while he and I were browsing through my gallery I just said...momma isn't happy with the way she looks right now baby..I don't like my picture taken. But then I started thinking...the boys and I do so many fun things together...but I am in no pics. Years from now...these will help spur their memories...and I will be missing. Dang it...I can't let my vanity and sadness from not looking like I used to take away from this time in my life. So chubby or not...I am going to be in some damn photos.

Here is a layout I did of the boys and I this past October. We were riding the train at Bishop's Farm Pumpkin Patch. I used Brenda Kempf's Autumn Splendor kit available at Addicted to Digital or SBB.

Oh...and if you haven't heard...I am becoming a grandma. Oy!@!! My 19yr old stepdaughter and her boyfriend (who we don't really know nor are sure of) are around 13wks preggos! Oyyy!!!!!! gRandMa!!!???? lol. It all happens for a reason, eh????

Oh...and if you have any book recommendations (except romance...yikes, lol) or music (except heavy metal or hardcore rap) please leave them here...and some movies too. I haven't seen a movie in ages. I am going to expand my seriously...leave me those favorites of yours!!!

1. Love the doodles, girlfriend. Thanks for sharing!!!

2. Books: Diane Mott Davidson if you're in the mood for light mystery (kind of Scooby-Doo for adults but not that silly). Her Goldy-the-caterer mysteries are fun to read. Currently in my stack o'things to read are: Mine Are Spectacular by Lynn Schnurnberger and Janice Kaplan (my aunt loaned it to me); The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown (on loan from my Daddy), and Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire (the hit musical Wicked is based on this book). I also have Ali Edwards' A Designers Eye for Scrapbooking and both Becky Higgins Creative Sketches books hanging around, too. :)

3. Music: KC& The Sunshine Band's Greatest Hits is currently all the rage in this house. I think my 3 y/o just likes the idea of a song saying "Shake your booty" LOL

Thank for the doodles :)

The book I just finished reading is called "Owls Well that Ends Well" and is a murder mystery- can't remember the author off the top of my head,but I've loved all of her Meg Abreu mystery series. Meg is an off-beat gal who is a blacksmith, her boyfriend is an English professor/actor and she has a really kooky family. All of the series titles have birds in them somewhere. They may be murder mysteries, but they will have you chuckling too!

Love the Diane Mott Davidson ones Gina mentioned too, and lots of other mystery writers!

Thanks for sharing, and I love that layout of you and the boys!!
The book I read was a two book series, Plainsong, then Eventide by Kent Haruf, kinda a modern John Stienbeck in Colorado. A beautiful story of two old ranchers who take in a lost teenager and the lives of others in their little town. Love them!!
Shopping, soon!

Hey Tracy,
I love the doodles. Never even though of using anything like that until now.
BUT, more important I love the idea that you will get in more photos with your boys. As someone with MD I know what it is like to not feel comfortable about how you look BUT your boys won't care about that in the years to come. They will just want to see mom - the way they remember her looking at each milestone or event and that's what's important.
Hang in there.
