I adore Faith ......

I am so psyched to be getting away for the weekend. It will Jeff's first time for being alone this long with the boys. I'm so excited for him to actually have this opportunity. It will be very good for all of them to have this time together....and for me to be away! I'm flying into LAX this afternoon for my sorority's Regional Conference. I serve on our regional team as our Alumnae Membership Coordinator, basically like an advisor for all of our region's Alumnae Chapter Presidents. It doesn't really start until tomorrow night. We just have prep work and chill time until then.

While I'm there, I think many there are going to be sooooo envious of me. I updated my fun Princess Purse inserts last night. Our theme is Alpha Phi Rocks! and our colors for the weekend are pink and green. Soooo..what do you think??? Aren't these just the cutest???? (Credits to Faith True, see my DST or TDC galleries)

and.....speaking of Faith......she is the bomb!!! I just adore her soooooooo very much!!!!! She is mentoring me right now for designing and it's just fabulous! I feel like the luckiest girl alive! You have to go check out her goods at all of these stores, she has a slightly different variety at each of them. ....The Digi Shoppe, One of a Kind Scrapz, DigiScrap Divas, and Polka Dot Potato


All of my Silly Template sets have had a facelift too and they are available at my HODS store. (PROPS to Faith again for her fabulous assistance!!!) I will be working on revamping the rest of my previews and my kits in the next couple of weeks (hopefully I'll have some time while I'm in LA this weekend). Here's a couple of my refreshed ones:

one other thing to plug into my agenda this weekend....revamping my blog banner...oh does that thing ever need a facelift!

and....remember...I have a CT call going on right now....please scroll below for more details it's time for me to go straighten my hair and get the boys off to my MIL's house ... I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!!

please leave me some lovin' - I have my comments on moderation now (sorry, stupid story from earlier in the week) ... I will have limited internet while in LA this weekend & will get all of them approved ASAP to all :)

some exciting news for my Call ....

well....somewhat exciting .....
yesterday I posted a little Cheerleader Tryout Call for my Scrap Silly Sisters......... this morning I decided to add a listing at JustDigitalCalls to garner a bit more interest for my fun team.....
and.....drumroll please ..... I will be at a second store soon ....(shhhhhh!!!!!!) .....I'm so very excited about this opportunity


feel free to say hi to me .. my HELLO name is mesaraee ... warning..if I ignore you, don't take it personally...I rarely sign off of HELLO when I'm away from the computer

Thursday, February 15, 2007 much do you love me??...

How much do you love my stuff??? I'm talking about the goods in my HODS store, no other kind of funny stuff you might be thinking about. As of this week, I have three fabulous cheerleaders right now. Sarah, Serena, and Leslie are all so awesome! I am soooo lucky to have them be part of my growing little team. They all expressed interest in my designs and really showed me that they were true fans...all unsolicited by me .......sooooooo, I just had to ask each one to start out with me and they all agreed. They aren't professional CTers with way too much on their plate. YAY! It's kind of scary having a big big CT call right now since I've been so lucky so far. I'd hate to ask and only have one or two apply.

Be a Scrap Silly Sister!!!!!!

Just a simple little request here. No bells and whistles just yet.

*If you are an enthusiastic scrapper and chatter, and you just love my goodies...I'd love to hear from you.
*Please e-mail mPublishe at saranohw(at)
*PLEASE label your subject "CT Cheerleader Tryout"
*Share your best gallery link with me.
*Do you have any other digiscrap duties? If so, what ET, CT, and/or DT are you with right now?
*Tell me some fun stuff about yourself.

***Call will be open until February 25th***

I call my CT my cheerleaders, more than a Creative Team. I want everyone to have fun, show some Scrap Sassy Silly spirit, and pimp me out to the ever-so-growing digi-land that we all are so addicted to. Most of have fun and truly enjoy what they are doing.

I can't wait to hear from you!

ETA: if you haven't already....please see my latest news posted Saturday, Feb. 17th


I met my Cheerleader, Sarah, last night for dinner. We only live about 25 minutes away from each other. We had a fabulous time talking about our digi-scrapping obsession and other things i in our lives. It's sooooo cool that we are so close and can be friends in the real world too.

hmmmmm....where to begin....????

I guess I'll start with our Baby Boo..........
Thank you sooooooo much to everyone for all of your kind words this week and the last few weeks since I started talking about her. It has definitely been awkward around here the last few days. The kitchen is the strangest place in the house. We removed the dog dishes and the doggie door from our sliding glass door is gone too. We're also sooo used to her eating the scraps tossed off of the highchair and our leftovers from dinner. Even though she was in pain, she still loved our people food. Jeff even started cutting tiny pieces of his meat tonight, just for Boo. It's a hard habit to break.

our weather.....
the last couple of days have been soooo absolutely beautiful here....around 80 degrees ....anyone ready to get out of their cold icy weather and escape to Phoenix?????? Oh, I'm so happy I don't live in KC or STL any longer.

Fantasy Survivor....
I hopped on this little game at DST today........I actually picked Yul as the winner last season during the very first weird is that???? I doubt that will happen again this time...but it could....I actually picked Boo...I had to just because of his name you think it's a sign????? I haven't read one little word about any of the participants yet, so he could be the one most likely to get voted off first......NOPE, his name is Boo...that won't happen

my shop.......
today is Wednesday(ok, technically Thursday by the time this gets posted)....that is when my new products are released at HODS ....
check out my new stuff......a nice little variety, I think....

Hudson's Airplanes kit (a total update of the original I had as a blog freebie a long time ago .... and this preview does not show all elements)Hudson's Airplanes sticker pack
(this preview doesn't show up with the gray and black in the store or DST...just here for some strange reason)

Perky Alpha PINK (more colors next Wednesday)

***PSA - all of my new products (over $3.00) will be on sale each Wednesday for Humpday Happiness Sale at 20% off .......... and all other days you can use my friends discount of $1.00 off your purchases at my store ($3.00 min order)...just use code SE1

now....please go over to the shop and check out everyone else's products too......this week so many super incredible items were added......and I'm not being biased....there really are some super duper cool things there .....................and, while you are there, hop on over to our forum, register, and intro yourself!!!!!!

*****'s now 12:39am....time to go to sleep for a few hours .......later!

today was the day....

wellllll....after lots of deliberation ....... we put Boo to sleep today. She won't be in pain any longer. It was kind of tough because she acted like happy Boo as much as she could and wagged her tail, but any free moment she had, she would lick and gnaw at her tumor. The last few days she really went to town on it. We had lots of dried blood on our back patio and little bits around the house. Luckily most of it was on our tile. Two of Jeff's very good friends came by during their lunch hours today to say good-bye to her. It was so nice of them to do so. Then, Jeff's best friend came over since they got her together around 15-16 years ago. I took the boys over to a friends house and met Jeff, Dave, and Boo at our Vet's office. After lots of bawling by us and a very quick shot it was over. It put her to sleep so fast. It's so sad, but soooo nice to know that she is in a better place now. About 30 minutes after we came home I cleaned up every sign of Boo and Jeff removed our doggie door. We figured it would probably be best for the boys that way ("out of sight, out of mind"). After they came back home, Hudson just made one quick question wondering where Boo's food and water bowls went. I said they went bye-bye and then he just went on like normal. I don't think either one even noticed that the doggie door was missing yet. Sooo, the next few days and beyond will be weird and very rough on Jeff the most. At least he has a family now..unlike 5.5 years ago when he had to put Otis down. At that time, it was only him and Boo left in the house. Here's some pics from over the weekend. I'm going to try and get some of these scrapped for Jeff for Valentine's Day.


I feel weird even writing anything else right now. I was going to, but it just doesn't seem right.

what took me sooooo long??

new digi-stuff for me...

I am FINALLY an Atomic Cupcake girl. Oh my! What took me so long to venture on over there to really check out the offerings. It is such a steal I couldn't pass it up. I might have even made a little goodie for everyone since it's been AGES since I've done so.

I ordered a custom brush set by the oh so awesome Genevieve Sass. I can't wait to receive it and play with the brushes to make some more fabulous things for everyone to enjoy!

I also purchased another goodie, Karah Fredrick's Easy-Peasy Folded Corner Template.

now some sad news...

I called our vet this morning to try and arrange a time for him to come over and put Boo to sleep. Her tumor is just irritating her way
too much lately. I started wrapping it with little diapers so she couldn't aggravate it any more, but she eventually takes it off and makes it bleed more. Well, Dr. MacKenzie has to call us back on Monday to let us know if he will agree to it or not. I doubt he'll turn us down. Today was definitely a tough day for Jeff. He even started to dig her burial spot at the side of our house. The next week (plus) is definitely going to be rough.

some better news for me...

thanks to the wonderful girls at DST....I now have a keyboard that works. I was strongly encouraged to switch to Firefox. I did and (WOW
) it's so much nicer!!! I realized that when I upgraded to IE7 is when it started to screw up. So not nice. Firefox is soooooo fabulous! Everyone should use it for the web.


Serena is the coolest ..still...........

She made me a new blog blinkie. She combined a few of my kits and came up with this.
Isn't it soooo fabulo

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
