It's Thursday again! I missed posting last week because I really didn't plan around my vacation very well, but I'm back and look forward to staying on schedule. Speaking of schedules, I can't wait until our normal school-year schedule resumes (both of my kids go back on Tuesday). We've had... Continue reading

My daughter, Laury,n is on the young side, but I might go ahead and enroll her in Jessica Sprague's Photoshop for Kids course. It looks like a great way to introduce kids to Photoshop and digital scrapbooking! If you live in/near The Pacific Northwest, you have to check out Tina... Continue reading

Ali's annual Week in the Life project started today! Even though I've only completed one (in 2008; I also attempted in 2010 and in 2011), I absolutely adore this project. I decided to give it another go this year and purchased Ali's kit. I chose the super cute graphic black... Continue reading

Last week, I shared the first half of my Maui mini album. Let's take a peek at the rest. Even though my family was staying at our timeshare, the rest of our friends rented a gorgeous home about a mile away. It had an infinity pool and amazing views. One... Continue reading

So, it's official. I'm addicted to tissue paper! I played with it again this week. I'm still trying to master the gesso/gel medium/watercolor combo. I often have an idea of what I'd like my end result to look like, but I usually don't achieve it. I'm having fun trying though!... Continue reading

I've decided to rearrange and declutter my craft space. AGAIN. It's truly a never-ending endeavor. This time, however, I'm determined to actually take action and make changes/decisions rather than just shuffling items from one piece of furniture to another. I keep finding stacks of unfinished projects, mostly mini albums. It's... Continue reading

It's Get Messy Thursday!! I had a great time with my journal entry this week. I started off by grabbing a background that I had on hand. It's a sheet of very thin canvas that I painted on with abstract strokes of gold and coral paint. I also decided to... Continue reading

I finally jumped on the Birkenstock bandwagon. I have no idea why I waited so long; they're easily the best shoes I've ever owned. I can't wait to buy another pair next summer. Have you guys seen Trainwreck yet? I went this week with a few friends. HILARIOUS. I can't... Continue reading

Welcome to the Season of Serenity! This week, I thought about where I go when life feels hard. This was a no-brainer for me. I do my very best thinking while I'm walking alone. I grew up in San Francisco...without a car (in fact, my mother and grandmother still don't... Continue reading

I've been reading a ton lately. Between traveling and not feeling well, reading has kept me feeling sane and grounded. Here's what I've been into: Completed: The Blessings (not pictured) - this was a beautiful story; it follows several generations of the same family. Highly recommended. The Royal We -...

Stop the presses!! I actually churned out two art journal pages this week! I really have Nina to thank for the first one. She took over Get Messy's Instagram and challenged us to create something using her free cut outs (hop on over to her blog and download some for... Continue reading

Hello all! On this first day of July (what?!?), I thought I'd pop In with an update on my take on The 100 Day Project. Here are days 25-72: It's funny because I always feel as if I'm doing well... then I do the math. From Day 25 to Day... Continue reading

Just a few things this week: I took my little ones to see Inside Out today. Such a sweet movie! It was a little complicated though; most of it went over Michael's head (age four), but I have a feeling Lauryn (age seven) and I will be talking about it... Continue reading

Hello everyone! It's time for another Get Messy Thursday. This week, I dove into my crafty recycling bin: Kind of a hot mess, I must admit. Once I started it, though, I made a commitment to finish it. It's amazing the sort of things I find in my studio; once... Continue reading

Hello! I'm back with another week of Get Messy Thursday... ...with a twist. This week, we're playing a fun and creative art journaling game. Each day, starting Monday, we've were given a material/medium to play with (and sometimes an instruction on how to use that material). Here's a sneak peek... Continue reading

Welcome to the Season of Adventure! A few of us Get Messy girls have decided to return to sharing our journal entries on Thursdays (as we did last year); we missed the accountability and the push to create on a deadline. This is the woodsy walk that my little ones... Continue reading

So I'm about 1/4 of the way into MY 100 Day Project. Here's how it looks so far: Yes, you're counting correctly. I only MOVED on half of the 24 days. A few of those days, I was filled with guilt and disappointment. I felt like a failure. In truth?... Continue reading

Love this! I finished the book a few weeks ago. I really had get past my thoughts of, "shit, she sounded like such a sad little girl" before I could take away anything positive! The mother in me was very concerned about her :)

My Details* starts tomorrow! I finally dug out my mini book from last year's class and thought it would be a great time to share a few pages. I used a Moleskine accordion weekly planner (very similar to this one). You can see the entire project here. There's still time... Continue reading

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I decided to participate in Great Discontent's 100 Day Project. Even though it started last Monday (April 6), I gave myself permission to take some time to mull the project over. And I'm so thankful I did. I was originally going... Continue reading
