Thanks for the heads up! I removed the link.

Photo courtesy of Netflix For the past few weeks all I've been hearing about and seeing online is talk about a Netflix documentary called Making a Murderer. Over the weekend I decided it was time to check it out and I wasn't disappointed. This is an original Netflix documentary, which... Continue reading

2016 has arrived! There's always a lot of excitement surrounding the start of a new year - everything seems possible on JANUARY first. My year started with a four day break from work. I spent all four days at home in my pajamas with the exception of one hour at... Continue reading

Thanks for sharing such honest feelings with us, your online people! I am so blessed to have a tight circle of friends and they have honestly helped me through so many good and bad times. My "baby girl" is getting married THIS Saturday (ahh!) and I wouldn't be sane or as ready as I am without their help. We met through church many, many years ago and it's hard to imagine my life without them to lean on and to make great memories with. I think meeting people organically is great (at the park or the library as you mentioned) but you could also join groups or even start a group centered around something you love, like knitting, quilting or reading. You've mentioned not being a big fan of Facebook, but our small town and several neighboring towns have a "Real life in . . ." page where people post garage sales or activities going on in the area. If San Diego has something like that it might be a good place to find out what's going on around town. If you are open to friendship I think you'll find it! Hugs!

STARS can be a great addition to anything from a scrapbook page to home decor. They are gender neutral, which makes them so versatile. They are also a symbol of the United States and a staple of Americana. I have a set of red, white and blue stars that I... Continue reading

I recently spent some time organizing the photos that I'm planning to scrapbook. I've been using Iris photo storage containers that I purchased from to store my photos for a while. I like these containers because each comes with 6 smaller containers, and together the set holds 100 4"... Continue reading

I'm not sure how it happened but all of a sudden JULY is right around the corner. I love the "theme" that surrounds the 4th of July - red, white & blue and stars - what's not to love! I was thinking about the upcoming holiday last night and decided... Continue reading

The story around here involves a swimming pool, a couple of beaches, hot + humid weather, good food and good friends. I spent last week in Florida with a group of girlfriends. As expected, it was hot enough to keep us in the water most of each day, either in... Continue reading

I'm glad you enjoyed the podcast! It was fun to participate and hear how other people crop. Thanks for listening!

I'm excited to announce that I am a guest on the popular scrapbooking podcast The Paperclipping Roundtable this week. If you aren't familiar with podcasts, they are basically audio recordings that are free to listen to and typically follow a particular format and cover a specific theme. I've been a...

I DO NOT consider myself to be a gardener and I actually have a reputation for killing plants. However, that doesn't stop me from trying. Every summer I plant some flowers and maybe a few vegetables and do my best to keep them alive. My biggest downfall is remembering and/or... Continue reading

The story around here is that SUMMER has arrived in Minnesota. School is over for a few months and graduation parties were all the rage around here over the weekend. My screens have been removed from the shelf in my garage, washed and put into wide open windows. We're expecting... Continue reading

I've been in a READING SLUMP for the last couple of years. I've always loved reading, but for a good, long while I just didn't seem to "have time" to read. I would hear people talking about books they were reading and I wished that I could get as excited... Continue reading

NOTE: the words under "summer manifesto" are not mine, source unknown. For the past few summers I've created a SUMMER MANIFESTO, an idea I learned from Ali Edwards. The idea is to put some specific goals in writing in an effort to give them focused attention and make sure they... Continue reading

A few months ago (or was it last summer?!) I purchased a mini album kit from Shop Evalicious. I've been a fan or her work and her products for a while so when she had a big sale I stocked up. I'll be the first to admit that I didn't... Continue reading

The story around here involves sunshine + cool weather, time spent outside and a long to-do list. This past weekend was one of those rare and magical weekends that I didn't have any commitments. Friday night, Saturday and Sunday were all blank in my planner which meant that although I... Continue reading

When I was making plans for my new craft room I decided that I wanted a stand-up craft table. I looked around online and found several but they were fairly expensive. I almost bought this one from but since I was going to be placing it against a wall... Continue reading

About a month ago I moved my craft room from the basement to the main floor of my house. It took me a long time to make the decision to make the move because I had everything set up already, and moving it sounded like a TON of work. However,... Continue reading

I recently added a set of journaling cards and embellishments for graduation in my Etsy shop. I used some of them to make graduation cards, but they would also work well to scrapbook a graduation, as gift tags or to highlight a graduation in your planner. There are also embellishments...

The story around here . . . involves rain and flowers. As usual, Memorial Day weekend was a wet one. I think it rains at least part of the weekend every year, and this year was no exception. Since Saturday was supposed to be a rainy day I decided to... Continue reading

The story around here centers around organization. On Friday I went to the Container Store and Ikea to stock up on organizational supplies and furniture. I've been wanting to buy drawer dividers and trays for my remodeled kitchen ever since the project was done. I finally made the trip to... Continue reading

The story around here involves food + friendship + warm weather + lazy days. I started the weekend spending time with friends eating homemade french onion soup, cheesy bread, salad, appetizers and molten chocolate cake. Not a bad way to kick off the weekend. We enjoyed a fantastic meal together... Continue reading

Last August I went on a road trip with my family - my parents, two brothers and my sister-in-law. Six adults in a van traveling from Minnesota to Colorado and back. We made the 14 hour trip in one day (each way), leaving at 6 a.m. Shortly after the trip... Continue reading
