Interests: I'm a digital scrapbooker who still plays with paper sometimes, a photographer, and a quilter. And I am not allowed to find anymore hobbies! I'm also married with three kids and I used to be an attorney before I entered the land of SAHMs. Currently, I'm stuck in the midwest and dream of returning to the coast of Maine one day. You will see a lot of scrapbook layouts on my blog, photos of my quilts and ramblings about quilt designs and fabric, along with lots of family photos and goofy stories about our life. I love to have comments on my blog and I love to connect with others who enjoy scrapbooking, quilting and photography so feel free to drop me a line and introduce yourself. :)

We are so lucky to have a large, mostly-finished basement. We have two storage rooms that are unfinished but the rest of it is finished and is one large L-shaped space. The small part of the L is a kitchen... Continue reading

When I posted earlier this month about this being the year of me finishing projects before I take on any new ones, part of that goal was to finish taking care of me. It's so easy as a mom to... Continue reading

Three years ago, I made a Colorbrick quilt for someone as a gift. It's one of my favorite quilts and it was very hard to give away. You can see more photos and get a link to the pattern in... Continue reading

I'm an idiot. Sigh. For all of 2012 and through May of 2013, I've done a Project Life paper album. The kids loved it, they added journaling, their own photos and we included tons and tons of ephemera. Until we... Continue reading

I love new beginnings. Mondays, the first of every month, each new season, the first day of school, the first day of summer, and especially new years. I love the way that a new beginning feels fresh and makes me... Continue reading

I'm catching up on Project Life! That is truly one of the best parts of this form of memory-keeping - it's so dang fast to catch up. Even when you're months behind. Here's a couple of previews - as always,... Continue reading

Sharyn and I have a weird, really cool, make-the-hair-on-the-back-of-your-neck-stand-up kind of friendship. We often call each other sisters because we always seem to do the same things at the same time without any knowledge of the other's activities until they're... Continue reading

We've been trying a lot of recipes I've found on Pinterest lately and I decided to write some quick real-life reviews of them after some friends have asked how they turned out. And the one thing I don't like about... Continue reading

LOL! But I guess it would have been nice to at least hear someone say it. I just never, ever heard it.

When my kids were little and my biggest accomplishment was getting out of the grocery store alive with a newborn, a 2 year old, and a 5 year old, I used to look at the parents of older kids with... Continue reading

Yeah, so for those of you who are still faithful enough to still read this, I'm sorry. This hasn't exactly been the year of blogging for me. Or the year to post my Project Life layouts and I know most... Continue reading

(my view driving Emily to school one day) I've been nostalgic a lot lately and it's because something in our house has shifted this year - this school year. Both girls started new schools - high school and middle school.... Continue reading

Pattie Knox was a designer at Designer Digitals but more importantly, she was a dear, dear friend. We had to say a very unexpected good-bye to her last week. I traveled with some friends to her service this weekend and... Continue reading
