Make This Moment Count.

Remember me?! I have been such a slacker with blogging and am going to work on integrating blogging into my life again. I could really use some encouragement along the way & feedback as to what you would like to see from me. In about 7 weeks or so little mr-no-name-yet is due to arrive, crazy how fast his arrival is coming our family’s way. The past couple months have been filled with a lot of sadness with the passing of my grandmother and then suddenly last week my uncle passed away. Both of these special people are on the same side of the family. Hoping the arrival of our new baby will bring some joy to us in the coming months. Tonight i had a wee bit of scrap therapy and had some fun with a new template from Katie Pertiet. Thinking i might print this out, perhaps on canvas or maybe i will frame it. Any recommendations as to a company to use for a canvas? Sometimes playing with pattern and colour is just FUN!

  1. This looks amazing Kayleigh!! Inspired!! 🙂 I want to send you tons of energy for the time to come – you will need it. Love your work and how you continue to inspire us all. Keep up your good work and all the best of luck with what is to come. Can’t wait to see the photos and layouts! 🙂

    • Most people who have HIV, the virus that can lead to AIDS, have no spmoymts for several years. Some people get flu spmoymts within a few months after infection, but there is no way to tell the difference between flu spmoymts caused by HIV and flu spmoymts caused by flu.Testing can detect antibodies to HIV within 3 to 6 months after someone gets infected. (More than 98% of people who have HIV would test positive within 3 months. Very rarely, it may take up to 6 months for someone to test positive.)IMPORTANT: Within a day or 2 after someone is infected, they can pass the virus on to other people. This is long before spmoymts would appear, and before they would test positive. Also, HIV is not transmitted 100% of the time. Someone may be exposed to HIV several times and not get infected. However, it is also possible for someone to get infected by just ONE exposure.

    • Nail polish rvomeer applied 1-2 times an hour followed by lysine or tea tree oil will dry them blisters right up before they start scabbing, reducing healing time by 50-75% Ive tried it and it works wonders! Look it up, thats the secret!!

  2. So sorry to hear about your recent losses Kayleigh – I hope your scrap therapy helped – the design is amazing and will look wonderful on canvas. I enjoy the little challenges you post on here as well as when you talk us through how you designed a page/layout. 🙂

    • If you don’t have an out break at the time you share utensils or kiss some one then you’re sllihtgy able to but less likely to spread it. The chances of shedding the virus is small and it usually happens around the time and after an out break heals. Unfortunately shedding is undetectable. You should know you’re not likely to spread herpes by sharing a drink. You’re more likely to spread herpes by kissing some one while you have a cold sore.Just live your life as you normally would. Don’t let having a cold sore take over your life. Would you rather worry your whole life about spreading it or have a normal life. It’s a chance that many people take and some with out knowing it. Cold sores are very common to have, they are so common that most people don’t worry too much about having them or spreading them.The more questions you have the more informed you can get.

    • Cold sores is another comomn name for that. About 90% of the population have it unless you come from a remote village! Don’t worry about it unless you have open sores in your mouth. Best thing is to eat well, exercise and have as little stress in your life.

  3. Sometimes life seems so unfair. I hope that finding some time for scrapping and designing will help you through this sad time. With a new baby on the way you have something beyond wonderful to look forward to.

    I just love your “In the Making” series. It is so interesting to me to see your process.

    • I wouldn’t worry if i were you When you look at the data there would be a low cahnce you have HIV.1 in 400 have HIV in the USAvs.80% of the population have either HSV1 or HSV2 (Cold Sores on the mouth or Gernital Herpes)WHO figures show that worldwide 550 million people have Genital Herpes.So really the cahnces of herpes is extreamly high yet the cahnces of HIV are very low.Not all people with Herpes have HIV or else 80% of the USA would have HIV I have Herpes and I don’t have HIV, neither does everyone I know with Herpes My advice would be to just re-test at 6 months if you are worried, but cahnces are that you would be fine and have nothing to worry about. Yes you have Herpes and some people will just become asymptomatic and never get another outbreak, but if you do just remember to just take valacyclivor when having an outbreak and you will be fine.

  4. so beautiful Kayleigh…I love it and it would look fabulous on your wall I am sure. Hugs to you and your family during these difficult times. Looking forward to meeting your little guy!

    • bubba Leo have wee wee (referring to his penis). when my husband told me this story i laehgud hysterically as i had never heard him say that before. well, at the park the other day he and his twin sister Sailor were playing on the jungle gym and all of a sudden i hear my little boy yelling out doodle wee wee to the other kids in front of their moms and dads. i was completely first instinct came in handy as a grabbed Leo by the arm and sat him down on a park bench and tried to explain to him that it isnt okay. well at his age all of this went in one ear and out the other. before i knew it this continued :/ with Sailor in my arm and half dragging Leo behind me i took him home kicking and screaming while i was almost dying of embarrassment.he screamed the whole way home but persists on asking me why we had the leave the park on firday (thursday).reasoning with a child that age proves to be very very difficult.Melody is beautiful. x

  5. Blessings to you in the coming weeks! I love the raised text on that layout. I’ve really enjoyed the “fun uses for” posts that you’ve shared here and would love to see more.

  6. Thinking of you Kayleigh! I hope you are well and I am very sorry for your losses. I can’t wait to see that little guy in your pages–the time has flown by so quickly!

    PS. I have used Pixel2Canvas and was happy with the quality.
