Damn you Pinterest!

Damn you Pinterest for making me a digital hoarder of: Clever organization ideas  for my cupboards and closets that I am too lazy to implement; Ridiculously handy home projects that I am not handy enough to complete; Yummy treats that I can never eat because I am on a never-ending diet; Places that I can...

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 →

December Daily | 8

This morning I got up, even though I wanted to stay in bed, and dropped Alex off at school. Then, I came home and went back to bed. Hey, don't judge. I only stayed there for about an hour, but I still couldn't get going this morning. So much on my to-do list and no... 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. Yesterday we went to the Pro Shop and ordered Alex's competitive figure skates and blades. She can hardly wait for them to come in. We... Continue Reading →

project life: 365 days of photos

I finally finished my Project Life: 365 days of photos, 2010! It's taken me 4 months. Originally the book had 38 pages. Well, I had to order 7 books total as Christmas gifts...that almost broke the bank, so, I had to condense the book to 26 pages. It's an 8x8 sized book and I used... Continue Reading →

december daily | day 25

I finally finished my December Daily - 25 days of Advent layouts. This is the final 2 page layout. What can you do with a set of Tinker Toys? Build a Ferris Wheel of course. The thing actually spins too!   Get my "Why believe in God" digital element freebie here.

live joyfully.

So I commend the enjoyment of life, because there is nothing better for a person under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany them in their toil all the days of the life God has given them under the sun. Ecclesiastes 8:14-16 Thoughts on living joyfully: Honor your... Continue Reading →

december daily | day eight

I just realized there are only 2 weeks left until Christmas! Yikes. Where have I been since Thanksgiving? Hoping if I ignore it, it would go away. Sigh. I have been making my list of items I need to make. Baking mostly. And some scrapbooking gifts. I can't say too much because some of you,... Continue Reading →

I am using pieces from an Ali Edwards freebie {love her!}. 25 days of Advent: Day One. I am not sure I can come up with 25 actual days.... Continue Reading →

another school year

Another school year has started. Alex is a big 3rd grader now and has really taken notice to fashion. Oh, I am so in trouble! Above is the layout I did for her first day of school. Parker started Pre-school too. She was excited but also sad that she would be leaving her favorite teacher,... Continue Reading →

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,...

digilayouts and logos

This last few months have been so crazy. I haven't had time to update my blog. Here is a few layouts I have been working on and a logo I designed for Alex's school for the Elementary level. The concept is to promote their slogan for the Elementary kids. I also designed the Middle School version (although... 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 →

Too bad the pumpkins got frozen this year. Hard to find a good one that wasn't squishy. Another beautiful day in Colorado. A little story about candy corn and childhood memories.
