How do you use Instagram?

I take pictures with my phone or iPad and post them to Instagram, but I am not sure why...Yikes. Don't hate me. Don't get me wrong. I like technology. I argue with hubby that Instagraming/twittering/blogging/texting will help keep me in touch with young technology. In other words, it will keep me from turning into an... Continue Reading →

So, for day thirteen I'll show you my layouts so far. I use a digital 8.5 x 11 format, then I can... Continue Reading →

First Day of School Layouts

I survived the first week of the kids going back to school! But of course, they didn't get any homework. I suspect next week they will get down to business.

memories of summer

I got the idea of "memories of summer" from Ali Edwards except her version is "stories of summer". Yeah, I scrap-lifted the idea. I love her blog. Her layouts are so sophisticated in design.  Summertime is the quintessential season for being a kid. Carefree days of running around bare foot, playing in the sprinklers, riding a bike,...

Parker is now 3 but I still remember the days when she stuck a pacifier in her mouth the moment she woke up in the morning. There was always a pacifier with her. I scrapbooked this story, if for nothing else, to remind me to "take joy in the little things". One of my favorite... Continue Reading →

’tis the season

Glenn had to put a stop to a little boy calling the house for Alex last night. He had been calling for the last 3 days, 2-3 times each day! And, they're only 7 years old. I saw into my future at that moment. Glenn told the boy that 8 p.m. was too late to be calling.... Continue Reading →

celebrating 3 with a digi layout

Every year when one of my two daughters turn another year older I design a scrapbook layout celebrating them. I like to list their likes and dislikes, such as fav color, fav food, non-fav food, fav tv shows, nickname...just fun things about them. This layout is purely digital except for the hand print of my... Continue Reading →

nickel and dimed

Ever feel like you are constantly being nickel and dimed for everything? Take my daughters school for instance. I think it should be renamed the School of Nickel and Dimed Academy. It's only October 2nd and already Alex has brought home 2 different fundraisers; there is a monthly fundraiser at a local pizza joint; and... Continue Reading →
