In the moments before this shot, Audrey warned Logan that he couldn’t chase Eddie like he was chasing Jack-Jack. Like all toddlers, he asked why, and was told it’s because Eddie was mostly blind. Logan crouched down, cupped Eddie’s face in his chubby, dimpled little hands, and gazed at him with such sweetness and sorrow.
Tim and Rose flew from Phoenix to Dallas to spend Labor Day weekend with us, just for the hell of it. It was awesome, and easy, and relaxing, and oh-so-much fun.
Maggie doesn’t just live life, she attacks it. Why jog to fetch the ball when you can race full-speed? Why wag your tail when Papa comes home when you can spin in circles and yip with joy? Why leave Mama alone when she’s soaking in the bath when you can sit pretty and beg to get your hair shampooed? (Seriously.)
I’ve been meaning to start this album for years, but the May challenges at The Lilypad finally pushed me into it, and I’m SO glad! I collect inexpensive jewelry from our destination any time my husband and I travel together. This album will pair photos of the jewelry with shots of the destination, and include a short anecdote about why I selected that particular piece. This shows the earrings I picked out for our recent visit to Paris.
Not only was this a great challenge just to get me scrapping, but it’s the boot in the pants I needed to start a project that I’ve been thinking about for a couple years! I’ve got a Pinterest board I’ve been using to collect quotes that are words of advice for my stepdaughter and nieces. I’ve been wanting to create an album where I combine the quotes with short essays where I explain why I feel it’s good advice or sharing some of my personal experience.
Mike told us when we arrived that the world famous Dutch tulips weren’t open yet, but they should be during our visit. I spotted planters overflowing with these stunning blooms lining the streets of Amsterdam, looking as if they’d been brushed with swaths of red paint. So pretty!

Or, How I Add New Stuff to My Library In this post, I talked about how I’ve reached Digital Scrapbooking Supply Nirvana, where I can see what I have, find what I need, and use it all when and how I want. It’s probably easiest to explain how I organize …
I believe a big part of maturity lies in learning who you are and what you need to thrive. I discovered, a long time ago, that I need a dedicated space to create. I need that space to be orderly. And I need to easily see my supplies, or I don’t use them. When I made the transition from physical cardstock and stamps to digital ones, I didn’t immediately apply that knowledge of self to my new virtual studio. I’m convinced that’s why it took me so long to become a productive and happy digital scrapbooker. In 2012, I decided I’d had enough. I was spending money to purchase digital supplies, but had only a handful of pages to show for it. Scrapbooking was no longer a joy, and it was a creative outlet I sorely missed. So I gutted and remodeled my “virtual craft room”. Here’s how I created my own Digital Scrapbooking Nirvana.
