My Soap Opera - the beginning

I did it, I switched over my blog to blogger. Welcome to my new home at As The World Scraps!
Things in my scrapping life as well as my non scrapbooking world will be shared here.
Let me start with saying who I am. I am Karen Clark (Giddy) aka wife to Dan, mother of eight wonderful children. My life right now is simple. We relocated to RL last fall and we are still in transition of buying a home. Most all of our possessions are in 3 storage units so we have a very bare rental home in which we are renting from our realtor. We made an offer in March on a wonderful home but during the process it was snatched up by another offer. Though we are sad about this we know that God has blessed another family and has given them what they need. He will provide for us as well. We have been searching for that perfect fit for us. How in the world do we find a 6 bedroom home that will satisfy my desires? I am not sure but will keep the faith that something opens up.
What is going on with Giddy today? I am pushing deadlines and having fun with them. I LOVE deadlines! Sounds crazy but in this house I work my best under pressure.
I am having a blast with Die Cuts With A View design team. It is so much fun and the team is wonderful. The Legacy Paper Arts design team can't get any better. That girl knows how to put kits together! I adore this past months kit using Crate Paper.

I think that is it in my work life, I just loving the opportunity to scrapbook for a living (ok... Well, maybe not into the double digits - but it is what I need for my living that is)
Dan loves his job here. He is on college board & the association board. (sorry, I forgot the name of the association). We went to a trade show that he put on for the association and I was in charge of the photography. I was amazed that some people get so MAD when a picture is taken due to the flash. (Don't LOOK at me and smile then!)
Adam, my 20 year old baby is moving. Only 1 hr away so that is just far enough for me to handle. Cheyenne is done at the theatre as her job as the assistant director. She will cast in more plays for the fall. She is so excited because she will be working at Camp Forest Springs for the summer. She was waiting for her acceptance or denial just like a sb'er would wait for an anticipated call. She made it! Yeah for Chey :) She is so pumped up. Wynter and Josey will be at camp while Chey is working too so that will be nice for her to see her sisters. Schooling will be going into summer here :) Gabby is finally reading! That was an obstacle! Jedidiah is a typical BOY, this spring has already brought so many bumps, bruises and dirt! He is praying to move so that he can finally get his 4 wheeler back. Right now it is at Grandpa's house for him to ride while we visit.
The babies are now sitting up! Ella has her 2 bottom teeth and Jera is teething away so I am sure they are about to pop out. They sure fight over toys! I am understanding why twin moms say to get 2 of the same toys. We had our twin club website designed by the ever so talented Brittany Laakkonen. Everyone loves it and we are discussing on what to add to the links. Thanks Brittany!
