Here are some pictures of me and my uplines and downline with Jeanette Lynton the owner of the company at the CTMH Portland regionals! It was an amazing experience. I can really say these women are my friends, they inspire me everyday to work hard at my business so I can reach my goals.

Create your own pattern!

One thing I love about My Acrylix is you can create your own patterned paper! Using stamps and ink the possibilities are endless. On this card I used a monotone effect but you can use color on color and cluster stamps together too. I love the sophistication of this card!

Thank you!

This time of year is such a whirlwind of events! I am mostly flying through the day trying to stay a drift! This coming weekend I have four gatherings and then next Thursday I am on my way to a Retreat from Thursday - Sunday! AHHHH! I will teach a couple classes there but then I will enjoy my favorite things about a scrapbook retreat the laughs! The women next to me became my friends through my passion - creating. I have to say Scrapbooks are the most amazing people because they love their art. They also take you under there wings and support you. Now years later these ladies are my closet friends. So if you are in need of meeting wonderful women go to a retreat or a CTMH event.

To all of you who have supported me in my life, my work and my addiction (scrapbooking) I thank you from the bottom of my heart because you all have made my life brighter!

This weekend I was able to see my family at a reunion. It was happy and sad all at the same time. Although, I tend to make this blog about business and art. Behind each artist there is a story...the funny thing about life is everyone has a unique story. In each story there is triumph and tragedy. My story is no different.
So why share it with the world, maybe because it easier to type it then to say it. I am blessed in so many ways yet there are many people I love who need healing. So I am asking you out there who pray for healing in my family.
My family and I lost my dad to cancer over 15 years ago. Along time ago, but for anyone who has lost a loved one you understand the pain never goes away. There is always that filling of something missing...I felt that yesterday at the reunion. This tragedy still haunts my family and has reared its head in their lives in many different ways. This is why I ask that you pray for healing.
One thing I have learned is that out of all tragedies can come triumph. I am where I am because of the things in my past. I am blessed with a beautiful child, handsome husband, wonderful friends and family and a job that I love. But everyone needs a little pray and everyone and I think my family needs a lot right now so thank you for your support.

Own It - Top 5 Leadership - The Power to Transform




At our Leadership Convention I was in the own it layout contest. My own it was the power to transform.

You may be thinking I am crazy for posting these pictures but I know that I will never be that miserable person in the photo again because I own who I am both physically and mentally. I made the choice to change.

Before I became a personal trainer there was along and amazing journey or should I say battle to loose the weight I had put on.

When I was in HS I was always thin never had to think about diet or exercise at all. I went to college and ate....lots of cheese, pizza, mashed potatoes and Lucky Charms because I was lonely an isolating myself. For about two years I blamed everyone mostly my husband for me being fat. I ended up 40lbs over weight and miserable. I even went to the DR.'s to see if I had a slow thyoid ( some of you have thought you had low thyroid so don't laugh) The Dr. told me basically no you just need to exercise and eat right....I thought stupid doctor I do eat good :) Then I hit my rock grandma said " Honey, you are just going to be FLUFFY like Grandma." I thought HELL NO!

That was it I made the choice...the choice to transform. I worked hard for about 9months to a year lost the weight got down to 127!!! Then I got pregnant went right back up to 172! As soon as I had that baby I was back working to get down again. I had a wedding dress to fit into. I was able to get to 130 in 6 months. I fit into a size 6 wedding dress. But my story wasn't over.

I had been helping friends and family loose weight and I came up with an idea a weight loss boot camp. The Body Camp Challenge was born. My idea...but Katie the owner of the gym designed the plan that is changing so many lives. Now as a trainer I help others lose weight and feel good about who they are.

Why, am I blabbing on and on because I want you to know that you have the power to transform not only your body but your mind. It is a simply a choice you choose to transform. Then you make a plan to succeed!
