I can't sleep since my darling pre-schooler woke me up!!!! He has been waking up and coming down stairs and will just stand at our bedroom door and when he sees no one is going to respond, he goes back upstairs to bed. But I hear him and pretend that I am sleeping! Why am I the only one who hears him and J gets to sleep soundly!!!! So here I am!

I am actually having one of those weeks as a parent where you feel like nothing you do is right....actually it's been a few weeks....and nothing seems to penetrate their little brains, which is so frustrating!!!! Everything I say seems to go in one ear and out the other.... you discipline and your child just looks at you or cries for 5 seconds, I guess they cry to make you feel better, and then acts like nothing has ever happened and continues to do the very same thing he just got disciplined for!! Is it just me? What am I doing wrong...it just seems like nothing is working!!! UGH!!! No wonder I am so tired!!! Anyhoo...that was my rant!

I guess I will post something crafty while I am here!

These are jr sizes legal pads...they are on the inside...I forgot to take a picture. The initials are for the special secret gals I made them for! They were fun to make!!! I found the "how -to" on Splitcoast.

Supplies: Pick a Petal stamp set, Cardstock: Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabit, Soft Sky, Whisper White. Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, and I forgot what color I used for the center. The initials are chipdboard from local suppy store. All supllies Stampin' Up unless stated.

Here is a card I made some time ago. It's called a matchbox card since it opens like one., again "how-to" on SCS.

Supplies: Vases in Vogue hostess stamp set, Fall Flowers Designer Paper, Cardstock: Soft Sky, Kraft Whisper White. Ink: Black, Soft Sky, Old Olive marker, and Groovy Guava. Crystal Effects. Marvy Scalloped Punch....not sure what size.

Ok... I think I will try now and go back to sleep. Maybe sometime tomorrow I will try and post Boog's first day at pre-school!

I guess I will post.....

Ok, since J started blogging I guess I will too! I do have to admit though some of you may be bored since I will post my stamping stuff!!! Some of you aren't the crafty type...you know who you are! :) I will also post some family going-ons!

So what is new with the Slinkys....we are still a two mortgage paying fam!! Nothing yet!!! Keep on praying!!!

The boys are good...Boogs (don't ask...aka R) will start pre-school at the end of Aug and then it will be just me and Peanut! Oohhhh what will we do!!! The Rockstar (as J is know by the boys) and the Queen (me, according to the Rockstar) will start going to a small group at our new church, North Point Community Church . The pastor is Andy Stanley, Dr. Charles Stanley's son. I didn't even know Dr. Stanley had pastored a church here. Although we miss Rex, we have been blessed with by the pastors that have taught us. Besides that nothing else.

Ok for those who aren't crafty you may want to stop reading and come back another day! :) For my friend, H....I actually did this while the kids watched tv....I know I AM A BAD MOTHER!!!!! Here is something I made today for a challenge at SCS...if you are crafty and haven't been to this site...BEWARE....it can and will get you in trouble. I have other things I have created that Iwill post over time!

Well, I guess that will be all for now!!!
