Interests: I'm a digital scrapbooker who still plays with paper sometimes, a photographer, a quilter, and I just learned to crochet. 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

Every year, I try to avoid making a December Daily album and, every year, my kids talk me into it. They just love seeing the holiday season documented. This year's album will be very simple. As usual, I'm a few... Continue reading

What an awesome giveaway! One of my favorite books this year was "We Were Liars" be E. Lockhart. It's a YA book but oh wow! It was great.

I mentioned yesterday that I wanted to go through my older digital files before I started my December Daily album and I'm so glad I did. I think I'll do a hybrid album but it'll lean heavily towards the digi... Continue reading

If you've ever been a scrapbooker, ever thought of scrapbooking, ever even talked to a scrapbooker, you've probably heard of December Daily. It's a memory-keeping project where you take one photo per day or create one page per day and... Continue reading

My kids attempt to stretch out the holiday season more and more every year. I've been putting them off for weeks but with Thanksgiving over and December arriving tomorrow, it's finally time. And so the season of anticipation is upon... Continue reading

We've had family here all week and have shopped until we dropped. Now it's time to cook, rest, be grateful for the family we'll be spending Thanksgiving with, and then get ready to make merry. :) I'm so happy to... Continue reading

Our kids are responsible for quite a few household chores. They all have dinner chores every night and they also have weekly chores. We rotate every few months so nobody has to do the same thing forever. Plus it's a... Continue reading

I know! I am even considering moving Project Life to this size. I just can't handle or store any more 12x12 albums. And this size just feels good.

Winter found us very early this year. We had our first snowfall on Halloween and I kind of blew it off. It was early but we've had snow on Halloween before and then nothing until after Christmas. I should have... Continue reading

Every time I go through this album, I fall in love with it just a little bit more. I'm even contemplating doing a December Daily album in the same format. I'm not sure I've mentioned it before but the album... Continue reading

This has been a hard year. Really hard and stressful in a lot of ways. And it's not over. But when I found myself at home again this fall and not working like I had planned, I felt drawn back... Continue reading

I have loved doing this album so very much! I will happily admit, though, that I'm not going back to traditional scrapbooking anytime soon. I bought Ali Edwards' kit, including the white 6 x 8 album, but as you'll see,... Continue reading

The combination of words + photography have been on my mind a lot this week and I've been very emotional about recapturing that part of my life. This story just spilled out when I saw this photo and I'm reminding... Continue reading

Two months ago, I messaged my friend Sharyn and said, "Hmmmm......did you see Ali Edwards' 'Week in the Life' kit?" Two hours later, she replied something along the lines of "You're the worst. I looked it up and pre-ordered it."... Continue reading

For each day of my Week in the Life album, I'm making a cover page. I came across this photo from Saturday and just had to use it as the cover page for that day. These are Sawyer's water and... Continue reading

Six years ago today, this little bundle of fur was born. He was officially known as "puppy number 5" or "Jesse." Seven weeks later, he came home to us and became known as "the crazy puppy." He was so crazy... Continue reading

I participated in Ali Edwards' Week in the Life project last week. I took a bunch of photos and used my iPhone 5s, Emily's Canon Rebel Xsi and my Canon 40D. My 40D is on its last legs so most... Continue reading
