In remembrance

 I would just like to take a moment to
remember my Nana who passed away this morning.
She has been suffering with cancer for 11 years and I have never known a
stronger woman or a greater fighter than her.
She was an incredible and huge influence in my life and was the one
who first introduced me to art of any form.
Being like a second mother to me my whole life I will miss her terribly.

God bless you Nana. You are with the angels now.
I love you.

Patricia A. Demmons

Nana and I on her birthday this past February

In honor of her life and struggle my family and I are in the process of
establishing a fund in her name.
All donations will be given to
Brigham and womens. in Boston.
This hospital is a learning facility for many doctors and gave my
Nana more years than she would have had otherwise.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions if you would like to donate.

Thank you with all my heart in advance.

Manic Monday!

I had a SUPER busy weekend and lots to show for it!
Friday night was fairly low key but had lots of work to do in the
I have been working like crazy on my Envelope mini-album and have come
to the conclusion
 (with help from a few threads over at Two Peas)
that the style or "theme" of this mini-album
is a cross between Steampunk and my personal vintagey flavor.
I am SUPER excited with how its coming along and can not wait to share it with you guys!
It has been an immense amount of work however and I am about half way through
so it will be a few more days before the finished product is
up for you all to look at but I may squeeze in a little sneaky peak :)

Saturday I spent the day hanging around town grabbing lunch, and getting an awesome package
from my dearest friend containing my favorite childhood Drakes snack
Funny Bones... They don't sell them in Florida and I was SO happy when I opened the package!!!
Saturday night was the Football draft and the hubby dragged
me along although I wanted so badly to work on my mini-book!

Sunday was yet again another rainy day (why is this place called the Sunshine State again?)
 so with not much else to do we went out grabbed lunch and poked around a few stores. I was absolutely delighted to find that one of my all time favorite beverages at Starbucks has returned!!! 
The pumpkin spice latte....
*insert sound of bliss here* 
If you have never had one I strongly recommend you change that pronto!

Somehow my husband managed to get me into Best Buy where (long story short)
 after 2 years of denying him the satisfaction of purchasing an overly large 50" plasma flat screen TV
( I still don't think I fully know what I have gotten myself into here )
How could you deny this face !?

Oh man its a biggen!!!

Any how!

Don't forget to enter in my very first GIVEAWAY if you haven't already!!!
And be sure to tell your friends and family to check out my blog for their chance to win
all of the goodies shown!
Here is the direct link to the giveaway to make life easier
 because that's what I'm all about!

And now, a quick glimpse of whats going on
at my work space
(do not be fooled my friends, I cleaned up right before I took the photos)

Oooh! Theres that sneaky peak I was talking about!
I cant wait to get it done so I can
share it with you all!!!

I have still been applying for DTs like a mad woman!
 Keep your fingers crossed people!

I hope you are all having a very happy Manic Monday :)
