'Pots that isn't chicken AND Storybooking!

"Mommy, I have 'pots. My 'pots isn't chicken."
My 2 year old girly has spots. Spots that look suspiciously like chicken pox. The chicken pox that I fought a huge internal battle with myself over whether or not I should immunize against. Especially because it meant giving her 7 shots at one time. I told the nurse to go for it, she had her 7 shots. Her DTaP-IPV was behind because I could never get into the health clinic and she was past due for MMR and varicella (plus whatever else they do now, I think HIB, HP, pneumonicoccal and meningicoccal? ) so they wanted to do them all at once. It was totally against my better judgement but I let them do it.
So my girly is one of the few (I think 20%) that gets the varicella vaccine and still gets chicken pox. I hope hers is a mild case like the health nurse said it should be. And I hope my Monkey boy doesn't get it as well. Ugh.

Scrapbooking samples
In other news, wonderful, incredible, amazing news I have a new Mom based business that I want to share with you all. Heritage Makers! It is a memory booking/storybooking/scrapbooking site where I can help you put your family photos and memories into beautiful, custom made, hard cover books to preserve them for a lifetime. I can set each of you up with a free account to try it out if you like. I am so very excited about the whole thing as I have been scrapbooking for a while and have really wanted to put my layouts into gorgeous hard bound books, especially for gift giving.
The best part is that you don't have to know anything about scrapbooking to make the most stunning memory books. All you have to do is upload your photos and pick a design and throw your photos into it.
If you do scrapbook already, or you want to try your hand at it, you can upload your own, finished layouts. Or, even better, you can use our software, right on the site as well as our thousands of digital scrapbook products made by Scrapgirls, to make your own custom layouts! You can also upload your own digital scrapbook products to use.
It is free to have your own account and to use the terrific software on the site! If you want to have a project printed, I can help you pick a package that best suits your needs and gives you extra value. We don't just have storybooks, check out our cards, posters, and family fold-outs as well.
So whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned digital scrapbooker you can make wonderful storybooks to immortalize your family's memories and enjoy over and over again. Please come and check out my site and contact me so that I can set you up with a free account and tell you about all our special offers. I signed up when I realized that for the price of printing all my layouts out at Costco and buying a $10 album I could instead have my own hardbound storybook, including custom designed covers!
And Heritage Makers is one of Oprah's favourite things. Look for us in an upcoming O list in Oprah's amazing magazine.
Yippee! Can you tell I am excited about this! Every member of my family is getting a Storybook for Christmas! I gotta go get busy:)

  1. Hey Kristen! Thank you for the nice comment on my blog. And I'm glad you like Vera's stuff!

    Chicken pox? No kidding! I've NEVER had them. I had my kids vaccinated just so I wouldn't get them. My brother got them when he was 37 and he said, "Kim, get vaccinated, because if you get this as an adult you WILL pray for death". Harumph! Poor bugger.

  2. Oh not the "pots" lol. what a nut you have there! Remember when Maddy had them? she won't get them, they said, cuz she only 4 months and bfed. What do "they" know anyway?!

    I got Amelia immunized for them too but I have this sneaking suspicion I've missed a shot....I'm so bad at keeping track!

    Oh and sign me up girl! Heritage makers sounds great! Can I make a calendar?

  3. Oh yes Calendars! Of course you can:)

  4. Chicken pox! Oh no. I am waay to crazy busy right but I really want to do one of those hertitage scrapbooks so please tell me you will keep a button on your site so I will know where to go after the holidays...

  5. I put a link in my sidebar under websites:) I can't wait to make my books, my list is long! Baby books, yearbooks for our family, heritage books, personalized alphabet books, vacation books, birthday book, Christmas books, Wedding albums......

  6. That is such a good idea... especially for someone like me who has 3 kids and zero baby books. They look lovely!

  7. Hey! join the club! I have zero baby books for 5 babies. oops! I better get on that!

  8. Congratulations on your new business and I hope your baby gets over the chicken pox soon. Take care and have a good weekend. Kellan

  9. This is a great idea! I love it...I will check it out...after Xmas. Have no time now.

    Hope the 'pots isn't chicken, but if they are, then I hope they are few... :)


  10. Hi Kristen - thanks for coming by and leaving the nice Birthday wish for my Dad. Have a good Saturday. Kellan
