I'm just now getting around to editing our spring break photos from Mexico, and thought I'd share a few of my favorites here today. And since while viewing other people's vacation photos is best done with la large supply of... Continue reading

Though I've always had a deep seated love for stripes, most of the pieces I've added to my closet are black, navy, or gray. But I seem to be gravitating toward red this spring. Maybe because it pairs so dang... Continue reading

I know I've mentioned my fondness for the 9-square grid here before and you've seen countless pages from me using it. But another favorite (that I don't think I've used here lately!) is a grid based in rectangles, rather than... Continue reading

Hey Michelle! That font (Arial Black) is one that's fairly easy to hand-cut...I know because I used it a lot before I had my Cameo! :) And the twine is fun way to add that little something extra!

Hello Monday! Looking back at last week, I guess I should have scheduled another week of Bygone Blog Posts, as this place was definitely neglected while I caught up from vacation. But this week should be better, I promise! And... Continue reading

Hey ho there friends! I'm doing my best to get back into the swing of real life after an idylic spring break spent on the Mayan Riviera. It was warm, lovely, and margarita-packed - what else can a girl ask... Continue reading
