I decided this was the year I'd do Project Life, and what happens? I start off the year by immediately falling behind. But I'm tremendously proud - and more than a little relieved - to have my first week's layout done. What a way to break my scrappers block! I'm... Continue reading

I had the pleasure of hanging out with the Reedlets earlier this week, while their mom and dad went to a school orientation. It's crazy to think this little man will be starting Kindergarten this fall.. I captured this image while they laid on the couch after dinner, watching TV. Continue reading
