Thank you so much Amanda for your kind words! I had no idea there were blogs just about the arc!!! I'm going to keep checking yours! And thank you so much for adding a link to my book, I have had tons of visitors to my blog because of it! I just posted about my first week in my book and have another post coming up soon. I have two other arc books if you care to see them too. One is a weather journal and December daily 2012 you can find them in my categories. I don't have them marked as Arc books, going to do that now. xoxo Julie
I can not believe you have those same papers!!! I wish so bad I could get more!!! Glad you like my planner, I've never used one before and I am having so much fun with it! Happy anniversary and how exciting you are getting a real Filofax!!!!! And all the way from England!!!! Yippie!!!
Thank you so very much DeeAnn, and for all your comments, they mean the world to me! Sorry I am slow in responding to older ones. I get so far behind sometimes but today I plan on being caught up! Sometimes I have a lot from my shop too and Instagram . I love getting to know my friends online.
Thank you DeeAnn for the good wishes, I can not believe you got your house for so cheap! Lucky you but so sad for the seller! Were still trying to stay positive . Lots of interest - no more offers yet......

i love to write poetry and when this vintage illustration inspired me, i sat right down and created one to go with it. i chose the map pages as my base in the simple style orange smash book. i used colored pencils to lightly color in the clouds and a... Continue reading

I've been thinking a lot about the ocean lately, as the time gets closer for me to be nearer to its magic beauty. I have always loved the sea, long before I ever saw it. Life is hard for me so far away from its sights, sounds and smells. I... Continue reading

Are you going to share a post on your NYC workshop where you used that to die for Empire State stamp? I saw it stamped in rainbow colors and my heart totally flip flopped! Still dreaming that there would be an extra to sell... I would love to see photos from the event even if I can't have a stamp. I want so much to design stamps , I have so many great ideas but no graphic design training. I've looked into custom stamps at Simon Says Stamps but only see the option of wood mounted ones. How did you get clear ones made? Thanks so much.

thanks DeeAnn, we have not been so lucky....5 showings now and one offer for $15,000.00 less than our asking price! very sad and disappointing. when we countered they would not come up at all. so we have an open house this sunday. omg! i am super stressed now with having an agent, i am sure i would of died if we were doing it alone. i know it will all work out but the waiting and not knowing is killing me. we found a great place to rent in Nashua but they are only two places available. one in 3 weeks (so that is out) and one mid june. so that is our new goal now. thank you for the good wishes, it means so much. i am so glad you found a great home. and i know the perfect person is out there for ours.....

thank you Sharon! now it is just a waiting game..... everything is about packed that can be for now. i am trying to resist the urge to open every box and get rid of half of what is in each one! our daughter is great, she is working 2 jobs to save money for when we move. her new boyfriend is moving with her. they will stay with us for a month or so while they get jobs and find a place to live. it is very exciting but hard. we got an offer on the house and it was crazy low and they wouldn't come up so we are starting over again...we even have a place picked out to rent out there but have no idea if our house will sell in time. we have an open house on sunday.....
you make me so happy! thank you so much for your sweet comments. i am so happy to have inspired you. i seem to have endless ideas for smash pages, i probably only do half of them, there just isn't time in my days to do them all. sometimes i do write ideas down....
