once upon a design

my sister, Amy Grendell, has just started a new bussiness with a friend and its awesome. Have you guys heard or seen those vinal lettering thingy's??? they are awesome because you can make crafts with them, signs, etc. but what i think is awesome is that they can go straight on your wall and if you like us and rent an apartment you have PLAIN white walls. Well with the vinal designs you can decorate your walls and when you move out, they peel right off!! how awesome? Also they are having a drawing for a free bird doodle, gotta check it out.
website---- ---- so neat. below are some examples of their work.
how cute are these birds?? getting some for Kason's room!!there is an example of one in her house.

yup getting these Too!
example of them on a car.these would be awesome on a board to make a sign.
you can custom order. Pick colors, sizes etc.

alot to think about.

so after debating, thinking, and discussing with Logan I have decided to stop designing digital scrapbooking products. It was fun, but then it became like a chore to me. I wasn't doing it because it was FUN to, i was now doing it because i felt like i had to. I was too worried about deadlines, and etc. that it just wasnt what i wanted to do anymore. so i have offically closed down my stores, cancled my designing blog.
One major reason i decided to do this was Family. With Kason here i have really thought about my life. About what is really important. I have taken so much for granted in my life. The main thing is Family. How important they are in ones life. I have grown up with a large family, i married into a large family, and we plan to one day have a large family of our own. I dont want to hussel and bussel of everyday life to take away the important little moments in everyday life, examples; cuddle time, reading books to children, baking because you like too, scrapbooking to keep memories alive, watching a movie with your hubby and baby, taking walks with your pup, talking to your hubby about nonsense, and just laying in bed on a weekend morning and just being relaxed.
So now i want to make sure i do those things, and ENJOY them. I want to weed out the "wants" in my life and make sure that the "needs" of myself and those around me are fulfilled first.
