Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope you and your families are having a wonderful holiday.  This year it's hard to describe feelings.  I understand what it is to be without the love of your life, the father of your children, and not be able to do anything about it.  I pray that next Christmas will find us together again.  But all I can think about is how at least I still have him here with me.  We may be far apart, not knowing when we will be together again, but he is there.  So many have lost even that.  I pray for their strength to continue and that they are happy or will find happiness again.

A surprise phone call!

Tonight I received a surprise phone call!  We didn't think we were going to be able to talk to each other for a week or more.  But Mike tried and succeeded!!!  Yes, he is in Gunnison.  He is on a brighter path...I feel it.  A day that could have been happiness for the change was another terrible day in reality for him.  The system that we depend on, assume that is the way it should be, is just another mirage to the reality that is.  But I keep my faith knowing he is where he is for a higher purpose.
Peace, Love, Joy!


Today wonderful news was received of Mike being moved to another location.  We are praying it is Gunnison.  And it is all due to an angel, that I cannot name right now.  His situation has been really bad, and experiences that no one should ever have to experience.  I thank God for this new path for him and pray that he may find the smallest amount of peace.  We have each come to a new path in life taking us somewhere else.  We each start the new year to come in a new home with new experiences to learn and grow from.  Thank you to all our friends and family for your continued support and love!

Another crossroad in life has brought me to the decision of moving my kids back to NewCastle.  I know in my heart that this is the right time for this in my life and that there is a bigger purpose behind this move.  I am not aware of it right now, but I feel it.  I know that God is directing me in this path.  I had to set aside my own ego, with my wants and desires to stay where I am.  But when a peace surrounds you from a decision that is so intense you cannot ignore it.  I will miss all of my friends and family here.  But we are not going very far at all.  :)

Peace, Love, Joy!!!

"Keep Holding On"

So one of my favorite songs, became literally the words I cling to all of the time.  To know this time will be short, this is a time of learning, to stay strong, and stay in peace.  The past few days have been some of the hardest for me and I know in the end to just "keep holding on."  This too shall pass and is just another hiccup in life.  He never said it would be easy, only worth it!
You're not alone
Together we stand
I'll be by your side, you know I'll take your hand
When it gets cold
And it feels like the end
There's no place to go
You know I won't give in
No I won't give in

Keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through
Just stay strong
'Cause you know I'm here for you, I'm here for you
There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through

So far away
I wish you were here
Before it's too late, this could all disappear
Before the doors close
And it comes to an end
With you by my side I will fight and defend
I'll fight and defend
Yeah, yeah

Keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through
Just stay strong
'Cause you know I'm here for you, I'm here for you
There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through

Hear me when I say, when I say I believe
Nothing's gonna change, nothing's gonna change destiny
Whatever's meant to be will work out perfectly
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

La da da da
La da da da
La da da da da da da da da

Keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through
Just stay strong
'Cause you know I'm here for you, I'm here for you
There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through

Keep holding on
Keep holding on

There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through

It Works!

I started with a new company called It Works! a little over 2 weeks ago.  I am now a loyal customer and another one of the thousands of people who can show the difference it makes!  I am sooo excited over their products, but the one that is changing my life is the Wrap!  It was so hard for me to post these pictures of myself on Facebook the other day, because I have tried to hide my weight and my body for so many years.  But here it is!  If I put it on FB, I might as well here. ☺
When you get results like this, how can you not believe!  This is me, it is unbelievable, it is AMAZING!!!  The wrap is all natural ingredients that tightens, tones, and firms!  I have been losing a lot of weight over the last 2 years, over 80 lbs!  I could not get rid of the flabby.  ☺  But now I am!!!
You can wrap your entire body, except for the face...there are facial wraps for that.  But if you are interested in toning any area, this is the answer!  It's the final key that I was looking for!

12 x 12 Canvas

Today I got a little creative with my leaf ornament that I made at downline.
I used it and made a Fall canvas after my Christmas one that I made for our Annual Fall Stamp Camp
Here is the picture of both.
You can view more details of the Christmas canvas on our Got Ink Girlz Blog!

Fun Stuff!

I have been trying harder and harder to get back my creative side  :)
Here is a recent project that I had fun making, my girls helped me out too.
I used this for my handmade project - door prize used at our stamp camp with the Got Ink Girlz

Made using the bottles and carrier from IBC Cream Soda...YUM!!!

And here is my inspiration for my project!  This was created for dad for Father's Day by Tiffany.

Another day...

Tonight my thoughts are on the upcoming holidays.  As I try to stay busy.. it makes time pass by faster.  When stress becomes overbearing I come to the realization that sometimes too busy is not a good thing.  :)  Thinking ahead of the holidays is exciting and heart breaking at the same time.  Who would have ever thought that would be a problem.  I am ever thankful that I get the time to talk on the phone with Mike more often now!  It gets me through each new day.  Just as he tells me hearing my voice in the morning gets him through his.  He is my life, my love, my twin flame!

It's been very busy and eventful past week and weekend.  As I have learned that some doors in my life are closing...I feel deep in my heart and know that more are opening.  I don't know what is in store for the next steps in my life, but I do know that each one is being carefully created with God's hands. 

Grandpa Chamberlains 80th birthday celebration was a very joyful day, spent with family that I usually never get to see.  We had a great time and served a ton of food.  :)  Grandpa looked so good!  His personality and actions reflected how I have always remembered him, and how I want to remember him.  It was a very beautiful day.

The kids and I returned home and eventually we will pull together the effort to prepare for the next week.  One day at a time!  It's all that we can do.  I'm on a lazy river of life...going with the flow.

A New Day

Well it has been a while and I want to really try to start my blogging again. 

There's been happy times, sad times, good times, and really rough times.  But from here on out life exists...One day at a time!  I want to try and start sharing my experiences just like that.  Not only for my kids, myself, but also the love of my life!  Which I know I WILL be with again, someday soon! 
I have learned amazing things, discovered new strengths, and look forward to the start of each new day with appreciation at the end of each day.  My love for life has changed so much in these past few months with all new meaning.  Each day I repeat to myself "Peace, Love, Joy" because without each of those, life really is meaningless.  I love each and everyone of you and look forward to my new path!

12x12 Scrapbook Class February

Here are the pics of the double page layout at my new 12x12 Scrapbook Class.
I used the new With All My Heart Stamp Set, Sending Love Specialty DSP, Sending Love brads in Pretty in Pink and Real Red, and the new Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch. All these products are from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

The Letters are cut from Chipboard and Cardstock from the Serif Essentials and Timeless Type Sizzlets using the Big Shot. Then I ran each of the CS Letters in the new Polka Dot Embossing Folder.

Also on these pages I used the 2 new punches from the Mini Catalog and the
Sale-a-bration Brochure. The new Scallop Trim Corner and Border Punches. These are a little tricky but after a couple tries it becomes a lot simpler.

Check out my website at www.tamimelancon.stampinup.net to see all these fun new products.

If you are interested in joining my 12x12 Scrapbook Class or getting the kit. The class is held the second Wednesday of each month at 10 am.
