Today is my last day posting on this blog. Oh my... one of the hardest decisions to make. I feel like I am breaking up with typepad. I just have had issues with the design capability and also so MANY people had a hard time subscribing to this blog and commenting. It's been a problem for years. My heart was torn... I have been blessed with a massive blog following and I was scared to do this move. What if... Continue reading

I have been having a really hard sleeping. I know it's because I have so much going on. My mind just seems to race. I keep thinking of what I need to do, things I'm not doing well (keeping my house clean enough) and some big things that are happening in my company. I have been really busy the past week with the announcement of my cruise in November. It sold out in 2 days... I added more spots... it... Continue reading

I don't think it's any secret that I love to create mini books. I love all the layering, dimension and variety from making books. One of my new products is the prebound ESSENTIALS ALBUM. I love that the new book has not only designed pages, clear page protectors, but it has a sticker and die cut sheet included with the book. *full view ESSENTIALS BOOK in the BOX workshop I am now going to be teaching the book in upcoming...

I love Fridays and so I woke up this morning feeling so GRATEFUL. I am super in love with life. I have such a profound love and appreciation for my sweet husband. Right now, I am just thankful that he is able to be out of bed more each day. Even though he doesn't get to leave the house or do much- slowly slowly there is good things to see. My sweet friends and neighbors are helping our family so... Continue reading

I wanted to show you just how beautiful the NEW TC/We R MEMORY KEEPERS albums and card set are. I was so excited to do my very first 12x12 albums and cards with the ALBUMS MADE EASY system. I loved working with them to make these products. I knew I wanted to add a chic & classic look to the system. My first love and career was interior design so this will always inspire all that I do. I wanted... Continue reading

The photo is a little mix of the various workshops that I am teaching the next few months. I am excited to share a few of my upcoming workshops visuals that I will be teaching... starting next month.

(yes, it's very classic,fresh, light and TC style... but easily able to be darker, vintage and grunge). I... Continue reading

So this morning I did the photoshoot for my next idea book with Northridge. This is my fourth I believe that I have done over the years. I loved where the photogragher Kaycee wanted to do it. We went to downtown SLC and to a office with ALL WHITE walls, brick, windows, tables and the floor was DARK hardwood. Oh my.. it was very fresh and cool. I adored her and she just made me feel at ease from the... Continue reading

I am home from CHA. I am a "little" tired. It was so nice to be home with Ty and the boys. Ty has been having some harder days with his recovery. It's a painfully SLOW process. I am so grateful for such a successful show. Truth be known, it was my BEST show ever. I do believe Heavenly Father is guiding me and my company's journey. I am already back to work today. It is nonstop and I am... Continue reading

I am just always amazed how scrapbooking has taken me to do some things I never thought I would do. I have to admit, I love taping and sharing what I love so much. I am a one tape wonder. I like to do my TV filming in one take so it's natural and from the heart. Filming with the NEW Basically Essentials and the FLIP BOOKS. Honestly, the flip books are truly the biggest hit and everyone loves them.... Continue reading

I have a feeling that 2014 is simply going to be amazing. I admit, I don't do New Years resolutions. I used to do the typical...lose weight, etc. I just am the type of girl who honestly DAILY tries to work on things and goals. I always pray for help to find a way to improve and work on. Yes, too many imperfections to focus on just one. ha! My girls do them and they really commit and do them.... Continue reading
