Happy Birthday Kerri. I love all of your classes and files and can’t wait to see what you come up with next… Perhaps a class with all of the updates and changes to DE and the new mat that you scan???

Happy Birthday, Thanks for teaching me so much

in comparison.

[ source ] Soooooo digging this thought right now. What is in our nature that we feel like we have to compare ourselves to others? To be better than, to be skinnier than, to be smarter than, to be richer than, to have more toys than…. It’s destructive. It leaves you always feeling like you’re lacking and wanting more–it’s nothing you […]

Well said, Kerri! I completely agree. Thank you for sharing these thoughts. I’ve been thinking these same ideas lately but it was so helpful to see them written so eloquently. =)

Susie - July 16, 2014 - 12:38 pm

Love it! Nicely said.

Chrissy - July 16, 2014 - 2:39 pm

Your words are perfect :)

Darlene - July 16, 2014 - 3:23 pm

How very true! We all need this tattooed on our foreheads!

Renee G - July 16, 2014 - 8:22 pm

Really enjoyed this, so true.

That Lain Ehmann. She is such a hoot! If you don’t know who she is, she is the queen bee over all things True Scrap. I marvel at her creativity and wit with each new event that she plans. I’d like to know where her mind goes at night….or maybe I wouldn’t. ;) If you’ve […]

I’ll be there!!!!

Sally - July 9, 2014 - 10:18 am

I signed up as soon as I read the email from Lain! I can’t wait!

marcy e - July 9, 2014 - 12:20 pm

see ya there… I’ll be the one with the big smile on my face!!!

Darlene - July 9, 2014 - 12:39 pm

I plan to attend the class. And Kerri, somebody MAKE me sit down and finish the classes I have signed up for here! I really want to use that Silhouette machine gathering dust on my table. :(

Janeen - July 9, 2014 - 1:18 pm

I’m so excited for this class. I have learned SO much about my Silhouette and all the amazing stuff I can do with it thanks to your classes! You rock Kerri! :)

Janet Trapp - July 9, 2014 - 1:27 pm

I’ll be there! Can’t wait! I have a cricut and have SCAL so I can design or use svgs but do not have the silhouette, so hoping I can get something out of the class!
~God bless~

Kerri - July 9, 2014 - 1:36 pm

I think a lot of the information can transfer to SCAL. I’ve played with SCAL and while some things you do differently, the principles are still the same. So I think you’ll be okay.

You can always download Studio and play with it there during class.

And Darlene, I’m coming over and you can’t get up until you are done. ;)

Sue FitzGerald - July 9, 2014 - 3:29 pm

ohhhhh, this sounds exciting, looking forward to it.

dolly - July 9, 2014 - 4:02 pm

Can’t wait

Linda A - July 10, 2014 - 1:21 am

Traveling so may not make it but I am a member of Lain’s ScrapHappy family so I can watch the replay. Love your stuff!

JeanD - July 10, 2014 - 4:31 am

I’ll be watching the replay, unfortunately it’s not at a time I can make (I live in Australia). Thank you for catering for people without a Silhouette too.

Tricia - July 10, 2014 - 10:50 am

YEP! I signed up. :)

Jeannie L - July 10, 2014 - 12:24 pm

I’m definitely not gonna miss it but will be watching the replay for the later portion due to time diff (I live in Singapore). Looking forward.

marileew - July 10, 2014 - 6:44 pm

The scrapinar sounds like fun….thanks for making it available!

Robin - July 11, 2014 - 6:12 am

I plan to be there, just signed up! Might have to watch the replay though, we’ll,see :) very excited!

Michelle - July 11, 2014 - 6:57 am

Alison - July 13, 2014 - 2:30 pm

I’ve signed up, will have to watch it on replay though. It will be 1am here!

Pam - July 14, 2014 - 1:28 pm

Thanks Kerri and Lain. I can’t wait for the scrapinar tonight. How long is the class? I have a baseball tournament at 8 CST. I’ll catch what I can live and then have to finish with the replay. So glad that option is available.

PjP - July 14, 2014 - 2:08 pm

Totally signed up for the scrapinar as soon as I found out about it. Only one problem: the Spousal Unit’s going to be running stairs with his relay team so I’m not going to be able to foist the evening dog-walk off on him, as I had hoped to do. I sure hope the event will be recorded so that I can watch it later.

Carol - July 14, 2014 - 2:30 pm

I’ll be there!! :)

Kathleen D - July 15, 2014 - 6:53 am

Signed up.

Station 22

So the other night, we had the question that we pretty much hear every night: What’s for dinner? Oh, how I detest that question. If I was organized and had meals planned, it probably wouldn’t bother me so much. Well, this night  we opted for eating out. It was Jordan’s pick (she only gets special […]

Michelle Liimatainen - July 3, 2014 - 8:26 pm

AMEN! And THANK YOU so much for saying it out loud!!!! I absolutely DETEST that question. I have a son that asks me first thing in the morning. I haven’t had coffee yet and he’s worried about dinner. Then he asks me again when he gets home from school. I want to rip my hair out. I hate that question.

It’s so nice to see you spending time with your girl. Enjoy.

Cindy Brooks - July 4, 2014 - 12:12 am

This looks like a fun place! We sometimes stay in SLC, but more often are traveling through on our way to St. George to visit family. I’ll have to check the location for convenience. If you like soda walls be sure to check out Pops if you’re ever near Arcadia, OK. They have over 600 sodas! It’s especially fun at night when the giant neon pop bottle is lit!

Kary - July 4, 2014 - 9:30 am

Thanks for the recommendation! My daughter just moved back to Provo to finish her degree and I am staying with her for a bit to help her settle in. We’ll be sure to try Station 22–our current favorite is India Palace on Center Street. Excellent Indian food.

my son: the wildlife photographer

So Zach just went to Yellowstone this past weekend–with the intention of doing a lot of fishing. Instead, he and his friend were having much more fun watching the wildlife in the park. They saw probably just about every animal imaginable that weekend…and what a show it was! They even had  a scope and hung […]

Dolly - June 23, 2014 - 10:06 am

Your son is very talented, I would say he takes after you but your hubby seems to also be a talented artist so I will say…it runs in the family obviously! :D

Renee G - June 23, 2014 - 11:13 am

These pictures are really good, thanks for sharing them.

Cindy K - June 23, 2014 - 11:42 am

Such great shots!!! Makes me miss our vacation to Yellowstone!

Laura K - June 23, 2014 - 12:29 pm

Oh if I had that picture of the fox it would get framed and hung in my daughters room. She is seven and obsessed with foxes right now, probably because of “that song”! Gorgeous pictures. Thank you for sharing them!

Amber M. - June 23, 2014 - 12:54 pm

These photos are amazing! Your son is very talented ;-) My family has been to Yellowstone once a few years ago, but we realize now we underestimated its beauty and have been talking about trying to make another trip there this year. Zach’s photos are inspiring!

Lili - June 23, 2014 - 1:05 pm

Beautiful! Bears oh my! I don’t like bears:)
On my way to Yosemite this week, can’t wait
To go and on my return take your class Here There
Everywhere. Maybe I should take it first.

DebbyS - June 23, 2014 - 3:28 pm

AWESOME photos Zach!!

Ruth G - June 23, 2014 - 4:56 pm

I love these! What fabulous photos and it’s awesome that he was able to stay safe since he had such a great zoom lens (also probably helped to keep the animals from reacting to him!) Thanks so much for sharing!

Our family went to Yellowstone a number of years ago and it was amazing what we could see just from the roads. It could take a lifetime to explore the entire park and we plan on going back again some time.

Have a great day!

jane - June 23, 2014 - 7:54 pm

Wonderful pictures of nature! Your right it does make me want to take a trip to Yellowstone in the near future.

Tracy - June 23, 2014 - 10:32 pm

Wonderful photos!!! My husband and I went up to Yellowstone and Teton National Park last week for our Anniversary. We saw so many animals(most we have ever seen). I think the cooler weather had alot to do with it. Maybe we crossed paths with your son, small world. Really enjoyed looking at his photos.

TracyM #6773 - June 24, 2014 - 3:18 am

I love watching documentaries about Yellowstone and think that it is AMAZING that Zach got to see so much in just a weekend, a real wildlife adventure – THANK YOU for sharing them :)

Michelle Wedertz - June 24, 2014 - 8:00 am

AMAZING photos!

Sarah A - June 25, 2014 - 6:28 pm

All great shots-the ones of the owls fighting over the squirrel are one-of-a-kind! He has a great eye! My favorite is the photo of the bear cub hiding in the tree. (reminded me a little of our trip to Denali last year, even though those were different breeds of Ursines

Suz Gray - June 26, 2014 - 1:04 am

Great photos he really has the eye & talent

julie - June 29, 2014 - 11:17 am

To close for me to those bears. lol

Beautiful photos, he’s very talented.


Lida - July 16, 2014 - 7:40 am

Zach’s photos are exceptional! Really enjoyed looking at his work. Wish I had the patience to shoot photos like these.

it’s the simple things

Yesterday I pulled out a fresh jar of strawberry jam from the freezer. I loved it. I loved the fact that I could go to the freezer and refresh my little stock of strawberry jam. There’s something about tasting the fruits of your labor (maybe pun intended). It reminds me of pretty much every summer […]

Sandy R. - June 11, 2014 - 11:21 am

I’m with you! Miss the freshness of grabbing a carrot right out of the garden and washing it off with the hose, and raiding the rhubarb patch to eat with a little bowl of sugar… I always hide some veggies in my perennial garden, but it’s not the same as the huge plat we had when growing up. I tried my hand at jelly this year too… Grape frame the vines I planted. I was proud, and the neighbours were grateful (it made a lot!)

PaulaJean - June 11, 2014 - 1:26 pm

I wondered if you got to make the freezer jam! I posted on your instagram about it awhile back… what recipe did you end up using? I miss those days as well. My grandfather always had a big garden and cold storage in the cellar. Miss those days.

Laura K - June 11, 2014 - 2:15 pm

I can every summer. I love it. My mother was a full time working mom and never had any interest in things like canning but I have an aunt who canned every summer and I would help her so it became part of my tradition. I wish I had a place to grow a substantial garden but a balcony in a condo isn’t really conducive to that so I get fresh produce from the farmer’s markets around the valley and sometimes go up to the downtown Salt Lake farmers market. We never have store bought jams or jellies. I hope it is a tradition my girls will keep up. Thank you for sharing your story!

Kerri - June 11, 2014 - 2:39 pm

Hey Paula!
I think I used that same recipe…it’s the Pectin recipe. I think there was one that you cook and one that you didn’t have to cook. I opted for the ‘no cook’ one. Maybe I’ll try the other way some day.

It may be runny-ish, but tasty. It’s great on German Pancakes too…with whip cream, of course.

Vicki - June 11, 2014 - 8:28 pm

I love to make jams and jellies! I do it almost every year. I love to do combos that you can’t find in the store – like strawberry banana and peach amaretto. YUM! My mother used to can a little – but my next door neighbor canned a TON and I always helped her. I love it. My husband had cancer last summer so I didn’t get a chance to do too much — Thank God he’s doing well and they sky is the limit this year :)

Ruth Tacoma - June 11, 2014 - 9:00 pm

Former city girl here (Chicago) who married Farmer Boy 29 years ago. We still plant a rather large garden filled with pontiac red potatoes, spring peas, onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, rhubarb, raspberries, melons and Bodacious sweet corn, even though the kids are gone and we give most of it away now. I love running out to the garden for super fresh veggies. We should have peas ready soon…Michigan is way behind this year.

Now our oldest son and his wife have their own home and are planting their first garden…kind of fun to watch them plant, water & hope! They are city kids with big dreams. :)

last week in pictures.

Still on the crazy side of life, but thought I’d share a picture story of a few things that happened last week. My first rose of the year. A beautiful day at a wedding. Boys will be boys…will be boys trying to be acrobats.Otherwise entitled: When cousins get together.Not the best photo, but shares the […]

Beautiful pictures! I keep forgetting that you’re LDS too. Which temple is that? It’s so hard to tell the new ones apart. Oh, and your “Sister Bradford” definitely has that cheerful missionary glow. :-)

Kerri - May 27, 2014 - 4:07 pm

Thanks Karen!
And that’s the Bountiful temple. :)

Kirsten - May 28, 2014 - 6:10 am

My husband was just talking about Cactus Cooler and how much he needs one! I didn’t know they still made it!
Oh, and I think we need the recipe for that cake!
Thanks for the beautiful photos!


Hey all! Just popping in to say that I really do exist. Life has just been super crazy this week. Hopefully some normality will resume shortly. In the meantime, this was my office space yesterday and I so enjoyed finally ‘getting out.’ :)

I too, got to enjoy some outside time here! Soooo nice before the heat & humidity strike! Very excited for Monday!

Beautiful Dog! and I love the toenails lol….

Hey…you weren’t suppose to notice those.
Obviously there’s been no time for pedis either. ;)
