One of my favorite purchases for summer wear were these camouflage shorts from Target. They are soft, they are stretchy, and they are just GOOD. (Quick disclaimer: I cut off the cuffs so they'd have raw hems. I have long-standing... Continue reading

We've had such a mild summer here in Colorado, with most days in the mid-80s and afternoon thunderstorms almost everyday that keep it nice and cool. And I totally don't hate it. My flower pots are flourishing, the air conditioning... Continue reading

Last spring our family made the decision to start fostering dogs for a local rescue (from whom both of our Great Danes were adopted) and since then, we've hosted eight dogs while they waited to find their forever homes. And... Continue reading

Thanks Leslie! I appreciate you stopping in & saying hi. And YES - making cards does help eliminate a little bit of the "bomb effect" that seems to happen whenever I get in a creating frenzy :)

Hi Tina! Thanks for stopping by & taking time to comment! :) And yep, I’m totally guilty of planning photos around perfect paper - it’s a dirty little scrapbook secret 🤣

I'm definitely not known as a card maker, but after recently having an awkward moment standing in the middle of the Target greeting card aisle and loudly proclaiming that STORE BOUGHT CARDS ARE A TOTAL RIP OFF (much to the... Continue reading

Happy Father's Day! I've rounded up some of my favorite dad-theme layouts to share today (and bonus - they come without corny jokes and the famous socks & sandals combo!). Here's to celebrating our dads and all they do for... Continue reading

I'm just now checking to see if there's a snowstorm in hell, because I BLOGGED TWO DAYS IN A ROW YOU GUYS! Just goes to show what you can accomplish when you apply yourself. And refrain from watching "just one... Continue reading

I always think summer will be a time to slow down, relax the schedule and make time for all things I haven't gotten around to during the business of the rest of the year (like, uh, BLOGGING??) And then before... Continue reading

Last week our pup Wednesday turned one, so I thought it's be a perfect time to share one of the layouts I did featuring her as a cute little runt. I used the spring SCT Delivered Kit, Spring Fling as... Continue reading

Hey Janet! Lately I've been using this glue pen and it's pretty awesome! I've also used this liquid adhesive in the past (it has a fine tip that makes application a breeze!)

I'm a proud hoarder of patterned paper and despite the fact that I use it on just about every layout I create, my stash is always expanding. Some of my very favorite patterns were from BasicGrey and when I came... Continue reading

Since we just celebrated Valentine's Day, I thought I'd share a page full of love (and not coincidentally, HEARTS!) One of my favorite ways to reinforce the theme of a page is to use repetition. In this case, I've used... Continue reading

Sometimes starting a double-page layout can be a bit intimidating. I find the 12x24 canvas hard to visually organize, especially if you're used to designing 12x12 pages. One trick I love to implement when starting a two-pager is to immediately... Continue reading

With a mere seven days to go until the big Christmas celebration, I'm (quite literally) wrapping up my holiday to-do list. I'm popping the Christmas cards in the mail today and then getting cozy for a marathon wrap session. Last... Continue reading
