About a week ago I went away to a much needed scrapbook retreat. I had a lot of fun, met some new friends, and came home with a few completed projects (which is sometimes hard for me to do given the fact that I have a tendency to chat a... Continue reading

This summer we took a trip over to Newport, OR. We love the Oregon coast and there are literally tons of towns you can visit. We had gone to Seaside, OR a couple years ago, with little side trips to Multnomah Falls, Astoria, & Cannon Beach. This year I wanted... Continue reading

I don't know about anyone else but I have a pretty long list of things I want to get done around my house. Not the regular cleaning stuff but bigger stuff like painting/small remodel projects/etc. We've been in our current home almost 5 yrs so we're getting to the point... Continue reading

Last month I took my son Ben to Disneyworld for his birthday, just a mom & son trip. It was the first time I've done a Disney trip without the entire family and I have to say, despite a little bit of guilt I was feeling it was a lot... Continue reading

As we head into the holiday season I am finding myself trying to keep things as organized as possible to keep the craziness to a minimum. And one of the ways I do that is to keep all of my gift giving/packaging items together - and prepared ahead of time... Continue reading

Hey guys, I have a bit of a confession - I'm a bit of a stationary nerd! I have always loved cute papers, notebooks, pens, etc. And I won't even admit how many notebooks I have sitting on my desk! When planners made their big comeback I was totally nerding... Continue reading

Today I have a fun little travel "game" that I made for our upcoming trip to Disneyland! We're driving instead of flying this year - about 1200 miles - and I've found over the years that road trips with kids are much more fun when you make travel games. So... Continue reading

Today I have a quick and easy way to add a stamped border on your card making projects. Sometimes when I stamp an image it looks like there should just be something 'more'. That's where this stamped border comes in! It also gives you an excuse to use more of... Continue reading

Today I wanted to share some simple ways to add dimension to your cards. Ya know, when I first started making cards years back the techniques were pretty simple. But card making has come a long way over the years. And while there's lots of different and unique techniques out... Continue reading

This week over at Noel Mignon we're sharing our projects with the new Shine Bright kits. But before I start sharing those I thought I'd share the projects I've made with last month's kit - the Love Life Classic kit. I love this kit because it's more geared toward love... Continue reading
