Hi Rhonda! Always so great to hear from you. It was hard to part with OA but I did save enough that I felt okay about it. I had every single collection. I agree it's nice that Steven Duncan is over at Carta Bella now. Hope you are having a wonderful summer too!

I do donate my stuff, or give it away to friends when I can. It doesn't feel right to just throw it away. I don't think scrapbooking is dead, but I do think it's changing and maybe even expanding. In the beginning I tried to do traditional scrapbooking but it never quite took. For me, scrapbooking has two parts. There's working with paper just for the love of it which is where I think art journals, traveler's notebooks, etc. come in. I make those just for me because I love stamping, and typography and just playing with paper. And then there is the side where I like to chronologically document things which for me is a pocket page type album. I want to document my kids lives but I don't want to make them cart out carloads of albums when they move out, so I've been working a lot on documenting more without using as much "album space". For instance fitting more pictures on one page or picking and choosing what I really want to document. I made both kids a 6x8 album which holds all of their elementary and middle school stuff which is perfect. I'm now going back through my own stuff and trying to pare down what to keep and what to preserve.

I'm constantly moving and changing my space too, but that's part of the fun.

My scrapbooking workspace has been in need of a good cleaning up/decluttering for awhile and I finally just dove in and got it done. This is the biggest decluttering I've ever done in this space and I'm really happy with... Continue reading

Hi Larcy, I made the date stamps myself. I put together a tutorial of how I made this notebook along with a digital copy of the date stamps which you can find here: http://stitchintime.typepad.com/stitch_in_time/2013/10/travel-organizer-how-to.html

I started cleaning out my stamps today to make room for some new ones. And then I realized I had a lot of stamps I really love that I've only used one or two times. So after I cleared out... Continue reading

This year I am using a Hello Forever Planner in Graystone. I like having a ring system that works with all A5 papers and that I can easily add things to. I started out the year adding a page about... Continue reading

I liked the book a lot. Our book club was split on it. One half thought it was a little contrived, but I thought it was charming. I read it in one sitting.

I'm always so excited to start this project, and I'm always happy when I've completed it. I made a day 26 page this year because we were traveling home so it still seemed to be part of the holidays. I... Continue reading

Christmas Eve was a nice peaceful day. We switched from doing a brunch to a dinner. We worried a little that we wouldn't have enough space for 11 people for a sit down dinner but it ended up working out... Continue reading

Can't believe Christmas is just a couple days away. I decided to take one last walk through the house with my camera, and capture some of the little things. I embroidered a tree onto some cardstock and then layered sequins... Continue reading

Thanks Cara. I wasn't originally going to put these two photos together but I'm running out of space in my album to get my photos in :)

Oh I'm so happy to hear that. Nothing beats having kids around at this time of year. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas if I don't talk to you before. :)

Hey Bonnie, I just started out with one whole page protector, and laid the twine inside along with the sequins. Then I used my fuse tool to create three separate sections. I was a little worried the twine would burn or break but it didn't.

Despite it being a cold day we finally got outside for a little bit. I'd love to add more journaling to these pages, and I probably will after Christmas. It seems like my days are getting shorter and my to-do... Continue reading

Saturday night we had a house full of teenagers having a holiday party. It was already dark when things started so I didn't get many pictures. They requested to have "spaghetti tacos" for dinner. Apparently spaghetti tacos were made popular... Continue reading
