I'm back from vacation with some photos to share but first I want to show some more in my cloud smash book. I'm going to share my Instagram photos so please know they have been enhanced. My favorite part of this page is that I used a cookie bag sealer... Continue reading

My husband and I had a day trip planned (with picnic included!) on Saturday up to the White Mountain National Forest. It ended up raining most of the morning and afternoon so we had a cozy day together in our apartment instead. I have no beautiful photographs of thousand of... Continue reading

This week is exciting to me because it is very close to the time I was getting ready to leave Iowa! It felt like the work would never end! I don't want to ever own a house again. Jerry baked a pie for some friends of ours and they took... Continue reading

Yes! And I often think of not blogging anymore too. But I still like it. It was great you took a break. Glad you still feel refreshed from it. You are so talented. Thanks for taking the time to write back, xoxox Julie

Oh and I have never gotten notifications on anything, so I don't even know what that is like! I try to make sure I decide when I want to get on line. The last thing I need is it calling to me every few minutes. I feel like the internet will take over every moment of my life if I let it. And I can't let it. It is a constant fight for me because my shop is online. And you do so much more than I do. Doing less online, is doing more for your soul. I still struggled a lot. But I want to be more free. Let's be free together!!!!

This is the first I've heard of anyone doing it besides me. But I deactivated my account about 2 months ago and have never regretted it for a minute! It was a huge time waster for me and it takes so much more time to talk to people than on Instagram. Instagram is more about the photos and I love that. I never feel like I have to comment, a double tap is enough. It was very freeing for me. And not one single person has even asked me why or probably even knows I left! I find Instagram drama free and more made for me. Sometimes I miss seeing new smash pages but I just go to Pinterest and that satisfies me. Be free Kellie, think of having more time with your girls, just doing nothing at all, which is in reality doing the most you can do!

Hello Gail, thanks so much for stopping by my blog! The bag is about 8 x 11 x 3, it really does hold a lot. I'm going a trip soon so I'll be packing it again this week!

I've been working like crazy in my cloud smash book over the weekend. I am really wanting to finish it up. For a couple of reasons: I've been playing in it for over a year, all the photos are from Iowa and I only have a few pages left-2 to... Continue reading

Oh and I forgot to say thank you for your kind words about my pages! I didn't really think they were anything special!
That is really cool that we like the same shows and you are welcome, there is a lot to watch on there for such a small monthly fee. Oooh , mold outside! I am so sensitive to so much stuff- I'm glad we don't have that here. Hopefully that doesn't happen often, where do you live?
That bunny sticker is from Michaels , their kids stickers that come in a booklet. They are my favorite things, so much more than the real grow up scrapbooking stuff! If you want to email me your address I can send you one, I'm sure I have another one but I'd better check to make sure before I promising things as important as bunnies in the rain! Yes I do! I think I have enough ocean themed washi! I wish I had more of that Sassafrasslass paper, it is just sooo cute! Thank you so much for the congratulations, I love it here so much!
Thank you DeeAnn! I know I have a couple of older comments to answer of yours but I feel like doing this one first. I am glad you like the pictures, I was happy so many turned out well. You are so sweet! New England sea shells are all white, cream, brown with a little blue and yellow mixed in. And not very many on the beach. But I still love finding them. When I visited Florida, the colors were like a rainbow and there were so many I could pick them up by the handful! I love the sea shore where ever it is! I'm trying to finish my cloud smash book, only 8 pages left to do. Maybe today!!! Have a great Sunday my friend!

My husband had the day off so we went to the beach even though it was only going to be in the 60's. And I am so glad we did! It was actually warm and there weren't big crowds (which suits me just fine). We went to a different beach... Continue reading

Coming your way today with another week in my planner. Pretty simple first half of the week and a fun page I did with two selfies my husband and I each took. On flip side I used two photos from our yard. One of close up of our tree in... Continue reading

I haven't smashed for a while and pulled out a book I haven't played in for a long time (like a year) and once I got started, I couldn't stop! I've been doing pages since Friday and posting them on Instagram all weekend. So I thought I'd share them here... Continue reading

I will have been in our new home three months tomorrow and I still don't think it has really sunken in that we actually made it out of Iowa alive. I love our new place so much it's crazy! I have some fun pages to share today - the the... Continue reading
