BOOO on Bloggy Moment

So about a week ago I realized that my blog posts weren't showing up on my facebook page... And I scratched my head and figured there was a problem with Networked Blogs.... but to my dismay it was operator era. When I set up my posts for the week I realized that I accidentally was hitting save and not publish now... I know BOO on me. So we don't get overloaded with the past months posts I will slowly upload each... So over the next couple of days there will be lots of posts, some reviews, and some more pictures from my 365/52 project. Thanks for all my followers and i continue to look forward to an awesome 2011. I also have so great new projects coming your way. YAY......

Valentines day is right around the corner what are you doing for the teachers? students? Children? Spouse? boyfriend? I would love to hear all your idea... I will post some of the ideas and crafts that we have been working on.

SHSC 365 Project or 52 Project Week 2

So its week 2 of my 365/52 Project I figured this week I would post picutures of my family... They are my heart and Soul, so why not show them off.

So is anyone interested where Im getting my super cute layouts...

They have the cutest templates for digi scrapbooking, it is making this task so easy to follow. I really want to not only catch up on my scrapbooking for 2011 but also to take lots of pictures daily to capture the littlest of moments. If you have a minute stitch on over to Owl Tree Studio and see what they have to offer. I also have a few other digi scrapbook suppliers that I use, but Owl Tree Studio is amazing. I use Adobe Photoshop Elements to make my templates. I hope you all enjoy our 365/52 as much as we do.
God Bless til next week.

SHSC 365 Project or 52 Project

Sew since my kiddos have been born, I have to say that Photography has been a small hobby of mine. A couple of years ago my wonderful sister surprised me with a Nikon D60 for christmas, I have attached a picture .
I would probably have to say that it is my baby, I love having an SLR camera.... As a mom I'm always trying to capture those little moments and as many of you know that isn't always easy with a point and shoot. I have joined groups in the past 2 years but haven't really stuck to any one project, but one of my 100 things to do this year is to stick to the 365 Project/52 wk Project. I have decided that Friday will be my 365 Share day... I know that if I had to commit daily I would get overwhelmed with it and probably quit. So, I will post every Friday for the next 52 weeks a project sheet with pictures from our 365 pictures a day... WOW that's allot of pictures, but I take a 1,000 a day if you ask my hubby... he is always saying that I live behind the camera... LOL while maintaining the project I will also be trying to digitally scrapbook and catch up on the kids baby books, and scrapbook albums (another resolution). I look forward to this adventure and hope that you all follow along with us here at SHSC.

Well its week 1 of the 365 day project I started on the 1st of the January I figured why not start the first day of the year... Trying to make things a little easier... Here is to an awesome year of memories.... sharing, and blessing.

♥ GOODBYE 2010----- BRING IT ON 2011 ♥

As we say goodbye to 2010 I find myself reflecting on all that the year brought us..... We had many sorrows, heartbreak, heart ache, struggles, set backs and frustrations. We also had joyous triumphs as a family, enjoyed trips, over came obstacles, found strength in one another, and amongst it all we found out how strong we truly are as a family. We know that 2010 was a year of struggles but it also was a year of teachings and to show us how to over come obstacles that lie ahead of our glorious path that god has paved for us, without those obstacles we wouldn't be able to reflect on the things that most people take for granted..... Each other.... family..... friends.... and surrounding yourself by the strength of others as well as finding happiness in the smallest things.

As we the Bauer's say goodbye to 2010..... we open our arms to embrace what 2011 has to bring us.... We go into the year with a Positive outlook on life and are vowing to find the positive spin on even the most negative of situations. Because in his grace.... GOD TRULY ONLY GIVES YOU WHAT YOU CAN HANDLE.... and truly what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Brad and I have learned through life it defiantly isn't easy but with each other we can conquer the world.... It might take us longer than others but ONE DAY we will conquer it all..... Moving forward I find myself looking at my life reflecting on all that we have accomplished through out this past year and embracing what life has to offer me as a MOM, a WIFE, a SISTER, DAUGHTER and FRIEND... Bring it on 2011...... With GOD, my husband, family and friends by my side I can conquer the world.... ONE STITCH AT A TIME.
