Happy NSD to all my fellow scrappers out there! Hopefully you are doing something crafty to celebrate (I'm going to count spending way too much time on Pinterest as "crafty!") and enjoying this weekend. In honor of the holiday, I... Continue reading

Well hello neglected blog! I think spring fever has officially set in, because whenever I've had a free moment to sit down and blog over the past few weeks, I've instead opted to embark on the Big Spring Clean (capitalizing... Continue reading

Apparently I decided to take a little hiatus from the blog for March. It wasn't planned, but work projects, kids' activities and a little spring fever may have had something to do with it! I did notice that I've added... Continue reading

For the past few years, Riely has sought out opportunities to perform on stage, be it singing, dancing or acting. So it was no surprise that when try-outs for the annual Shine talent show were announced, she started planning an... Continue reading

I apologize for being gone for so long, but life has gotten in the way of blogging. My grandmother passed away on February 7, and we traveled to Kansas for her memorial service and to spend time with family. It... Continue reading

Yesterday we awoke to more than 12 inches of snow and the all-hallowed snow day notification from the schools. Gotta love an unexpected mini-vacay in the middle of the week! In celebration of that, I thought I share a snowy... Continue reading

I was so sad to get the news that BasicGrey will no longer be producing their amazing scrapbook lines. For the past few years, I've been lucky enough to be on their design team and regularly create with their products,... Continue reading

Thanks for sweet words Michelle! I plan to keep on blogging - and hope to find ways to make it more engaging for both readers and myself. Thanks for being a loyal follower and always brightening my day with your comments! :)

Hi Carla! It's Branbol font, but I adjusted the slant to make it more upright and added the flourishes on the ends! :)

One of the easiest ways to keep your scrapbook pages clean and simple is to start with a clean and simple page framework. (I'm full of revolutionary ideas this Saturday, no?!?) And there's nothing simpler than a column. In architecture,... Continue reading

Since our household has been on a healthy eating kick since 2016 rolled in, I've been spending a lot more time in the kitchen prepping meals, as opposed to my usual meal prep routine, which consists of dialing up Papa... Continue reading

These outfit photos were from way back in November before the backyard had a foot of snow and when wearing furry Muppet-like clothing was more of a fashion statement than a necessity. But despite the tardiness, I had to share... Continue reading

Most of you familiar with my scrapping style know that I'm not a very technique-driven scrapper. I tend to stay away from messy mediums and strive to keep things pretty simple in the design department. But occasionally I do like... Continue reading

I've found the perfect way to beat the winter blues, and it manages to incorporate three of my favorite things: shopping, scrapping and dreaming of someplace warm (and with the freezing temps we've had for the past few weeks, that... Continue reading

I can't really remember my scrapbooking before I got my Silhouette. Well, actually, I can remember it...and it involves lots of painstaking scissor and Xacto work, stabbed and sliced fingers, and a whole ton of wasted cardstock as I tried... Continue reading

We're already a week into the new year and it's quite likely that many resolutions have already gone the way of the dinosaurs (and by that, I mean blown away by a giant meteor that burned up the earth -... Continue reading

Happy New Year friends! I hope you all are ringing in the new year with laughter, love and a little ibuprofen (or maybe that's just hungover me!) I wanted to kick off 2016 right with a fresh new blog post... Continue reading

Merry Christmas! On this final day of the Twelve Days of Christmas, I have one last page to share featuring the Christmas tree at our mountain cabin, where we'll be spending our holiday. I also have a cool giveaway that's... Continue reading

Merry Christmas Eve! Since Santa is likely gearing up for his big delivery schedule tonight, I thought it only appropriate to post one more layout in tribute. This one features a family photo from last year's Santa visit, along with... Continue reading

I'm a big fan of repeating your favorite page designs over and over because (1) I'm lazy, and (2) good designs never die! One of my tried-and-true designs is the Circle of Circles, and it's perfect for Christmas pages because... Continue reading

First off, I apologize for yesterday's post being so late. Though the post was drafted and ready to go, I accidentally scheduled it for 5:00 pm instead of 5:00 am - oops! I will chalk it up to raucous birthday... Continue reading

Because my birthday falls on the 21st of December, (which, not-so-coincidentally, is TODAY! Feel free to leave birthday salutations and gifts cards to!!!) I'm often asked if I feel a bit ripped off for having a birthday so close... Continue reading

It's no secret I'm a fan of all things typography, and this year I'm bringing that love of fonts to my gift wrapping. Instead of the traditional gift tags, I'm putting my Silhouette to good use (as well as putting... Continue reading
