Have you every had a cold come on so quickly that you felt fine one minute and were sick as a dog the next. That is what happened the week of March 18th -- the best part -- we were visiting Sam and Nicole at the time. So sad... supplies... Continue reading

From Scrapbook Cottage to Bucca in Denver and St. Patrick's Day Boise. One short week and three states! This week started with a visit to the Scrapbook Cottage for an all day Sunday crop. Later that week Mike and I flew to Denver for some client meetings and Saturday morning... Continue reading

So long February. Hello March. The beginning of March also ushers in the end of "Sugar Free February" whose demise I celebrated with a wonderful sugar cookie from Paradise Bakery! So good. I love how the photograph makes it look like I stuck a real cookie into the page protector... Continue reading

It is softball season again. Ben's high school team ventured down to Tucson for CDO's annual Dorado Classic. Also of note for this week is the alignment of the planets Venus, Jupiter and the moon in the night sky. The three celestial bodies were in close proximity to each other... Continue reading

This was such a busy week it took four pages to document. Luping and I had a great lunch at the Montelucia Resort in Paradise Valley. The day was so beautiful we shot photos of the grounds and even posed for a few photos ourselves. Back when I was scouring... Continue reading

What better valentines gift can a girl receive than a new Kinetico soft water and R.O. water system. I really can't believe we have lived in Phoenix for 21 years and not gotten this installed before now! I also want to give a big shout out to "Market on the... Continue reading

Now that I have the hang of this, these pages are coming together very quickly. It is a different mind set you have to use for this project. You really don't want to spend a lot of time on these pages. You are not creating a "masterpiece". Also, it is... Continue reading

Week Four -- Houston and Calculus Brownies! I had to travel to Houston for business this week and I stayed at the wonderful Hotel Sorella in the City Center in Houston. The City Center is business/shopping/food district similar to City North in Scottsdale -- or rather what City North hopes... Continue reading

Part two of the week of February 26th included the discovery of a fantastic app for my android phone (that apparently the rest of the world knew about a long time ago...) called Paper Camera. This app allows you to see the world through a novel, original, stylish and captivating... Continue reading

During the second week of the year, my order from Amazon came! Since I was waiting for the page protectors to come in I did some internet searches to find cool free printables. I found a great "The Week Of" 4x6 card from the Please Send Chocolate blogspot that I... Continue reading

I am really enjoying the Project Life method of scrapbooking your weeks. Now the kids are grown and gone most of my photos are "holiday" based and therefore, I miss capturing the normal and ordinary. With that in mind -- here is Week One! The first week of the new... Continue reading

Project Life by Becky Higgins is a great program for scrapping your day-to-day life. The idea is to simply pair your photos and journaling with pre-designed title cards and journaling cards. Your photos, these cards, and even your memorabilia slip into the Photo Pocket Pages and that's it. The result... Continue reading

While perusing Pinterest I ran across this fantastic idea! So I made my own! I think it needs a bit more support in the middle but it is such a great way to store the twine -- it is out of the way but decorative at the same time! Love... Continue reading

I purchased the Clementine and Amber versions of Becky Higgin's 2012 Project Life series but when I saw the "Twenty 12" card from the Cobalt version, I was envious there wasn't one for the Amber or Clementine collection. So I made my own! If you want to use it for... Continue reading

Last summer I fell in love with Basic Grey's Out of Print Collection. I found the Out of Print Page Kit at Archiver's in Boise, Idaho. The kit included enough paper and embellishments to make four 12x12 layouts. Here are three of them... The first "Sassy" was made using "Lithograph",... Continue reading

Some time ago I pinned this cute IKEA Box to Pinterest: I finally got around to doing one of my own. I bought mine at a yard sale so I don't think my box is from Ikea, but the idea is the same. I had one piece of very old... Continue reading

Check out this cool glitter carrier my friend Riki made: This cute little wooden toy tool box has been painted and decorated to store 30 Martha Stewart or Recollections glitter vials. Here is a photo from the top of the box. I stored the vials of glitter upside down so... Continue reading

Work was so crazy this summer and fall that I really didn't have any time for crafting! Since I work for an amazing firm that thinks highly of its employees and closes down the week between Christmas and New Years, and thanks to a 2011 and 2012 calendar that stretched... Continue reading

This week's challenge over at Mo's Digital Pencil is to create a card using one of Mo's images and incorporating food -- and what is more sweet than cupcakes? I have been waiting a long time to use this new technique from Inky Antics using Honeycomb paper and HoneyPOP's stamps.... Continue reading
