***Let’s see how do I introduce my blog. I guess I’ll start with what I write about. Hang around here long enough and you’ll hear it all, but somethings you may hear over and over like my trials and tribulations of organizing.


I love talking about how I took the above cabinet from it’s boring to fab.


I have an addiction and I need a 12 step program. I’m addicted to paper and ink. The magic happens here. Wow I need new pictures, I’ll work on that this weekend.


You may find a rant and rave about tattoos.


And then you may see me eat my words.

I often talk about infant loss, yeap I’m a member of “That Club”. You can read a little here about the day I found out that a part of my heart would forever be missing.

I talk about my kids so much that I had to give them nicknames, they had issues with people googling their name and ready all “the stupid things I tell about them”-yeap that’s a quote I won’t tell you from which adorable child. The First Born gives me the tattoo ideas, Mr. Perfect is the reason I write about faith, I need lots of it right now with him and The Baby Girl is my entertainment-with her their is never a dull moment.


I often talk about Mr. Wonderful, anytime that I show some great project and take the credit for it…I lie. Mr. Wonderful does all the hard work around here. He can fix anything and enjoys it.

My all time favorite picture, it says a lot about our everyday life. The Baby Girl is always ready to party and we are old and tired.

I love to do interviews on my blog. If you are interested leave me a comment or email me paperglueetc@yahoo.com. It’s as close as I will come to being a reporter.

A Beautiful Life

I love a good Blog Party (check out my Blog Party list and let me know if you want me to add one), I try not to miss A Beautiful Life every Friday.  I will be starting a blog carnival on 7-11 and it needs a name. I would guess there would be a prize involved if someone helped me come up with a great name.

Please stop back by we’ll chat about scrapbooking and card making, thrift store shopping, holidays, parenting, current events, and anything else that jumps in my path.

About Michelle

I started my blog as a way to connect with other paper crafters and of course it has gone a totally different direction. I've been able to share my experience as a mother, my hurt and disappointments over not having a relationship with my maternal unit, my walk with God and how knowing Him has changed me and continues to help me grow into the person I strive to be......

  1. I just found you via Melissa’s blog and read your post about the loss of your infant son. I just want you to know that there is a mama out here in Blogland with tears running down her face over your loss. I can only imagine how painful that must have been for you. I’m so sorry.
