decisions. decisions.

Lots and lots on my mind these days. Some new and exciting things going on -- or 'wanting' things to go on. Always growing. what to do. what to do. Lots of decisions to make. Constantly thinking about this or that. So much in my head. Wondering where my 'road' will take me next. Don't worry, I'm still here doin' my thing. Always will be. Just may be doing more things and/or things differently. I'm very excited. (I know. I'm being cryptic. :) ) And still trying to figure out to do  'balancement' word. Not doing so well with it [...]

A look into The History Project

I've gotten a few requests here and there to expound on what kinds of things are going on within the class. What are the prompts? What are you doing?  Obviously I can't share all the information going on within the class, but if you follow me on Facebook, you do see that I give hints as to what we are doing. So if you don't follow me on Facebook, here's a little visual sampling on what we've been doing or getting in the class. Each week I pick a subject to dive into for those memories during our early years [...]

new kits + cha recap

Okay boys and girls . . . today's a big day! If you haven't noticed, I got a couple new kits up! The fist is a set of new storyboard photo templates and I also used them to create my photo collages below. This kit is made to work with all square photos---Instagram Style. Not that you have to use them with an Instagram photo (mine aren't), but you surely can! Check out all the different templates here! As per usual, each template has its own frame--straight or rounded corner--to overlay the set of photos if you'd like. And just to remind [...]

twentyTHIRTEEN . . . it’s here!

I'm so excited to finally get this kit to y'all. I can't  believe we are three weeks into the new year already! It's been a busy one for me so far. Hope it mellows just a little bit. pfffffff . . . who am I kidding . . . really. ;) So, without further ado, here is the new twentyTHIRTEEN kit!   The fun part of this kit is not only the mixing and matching within the kit itself, but I also made it to coordinate with the Life Additions: Weeklies #2 kit! I felt like it was time to [...]

There is nothing more exciting to me to see these two-dimensional pieces of art I make come to life in wonderful ways. And Laura's page is definitely one of these wonderful ways!

love is in the air

Valentine's Day. Less than a month away. Can you believe it? I'm just looking forward to some warmer temperatures. This constant below freezing--and below zero--is for the birds. Oh wait...those birds get to fly south...what am I talking about? Lucky 'ducks.' Some of you may be thinking about creating some new lovey-dovey works of art to help set the mood in your home. And if you're like me, you're gonna wanna make exactly these fabulous framed pieces of love like Nichol made. Here's what she has to say:I've been working on adding some new additions to the Valentine decor of [...]

i love this smile

We have a special treat coming from Miss Naomi today!Absolutely gorgeous! [ Shapes | More Background Basics (diamond background) / Say What #2 (title) ] I love the way Naomi did that diamond background! Sometimes a 'harlequin' design can be a really strong-looking element, but not on this page. Uh uh. It's so soft and subtle. Mmmmm . . .  love it!

new project life: cinnamon edition

Just a few short (short) months ago, our darling Miss Becky Higgins asked if I would like to participate in creating another edition of her amazing Project Life system. Having had so much fun designing the Turquoise edition, of course I had to say yes! The minute she asked--and before I knew for sure I was going to do one, mind you--my brain started spinning with ideas and color schemes and all that gloriousness. I was on overload! I just had this urge to do something that wasn't the necessarily the current trend. I wanted to do something that I knew [...]

i can see clearly now

Do you all find this weird? So, I know I've mentioned my eye sight issues that I've had the past few short months. Finally went to the eye doctor yesterday and not only did the astigmatism go away, but my eye sight got better--as in one eye went from 4.0 to a 3.5 and the other eye went from 5.75 to 5. Um . . . what??? Has anyone ever had that happen??? I just find that very strange, especially to that significant of a change. And he said that it's not usual for an astigmatism to go away, but it [...]

happy new year!

A brand new year. A brand new outlook. A new year always brings hope of good things to come. It's promising. It's exciting. Why do you think that is? It just seems like it's a flip of the calendar. But you can't help be excited about new things to come--what the new year will bring. I think that's what's so fun about doing Ali Edwards' One Little Word. Last year my word was grow. I had no idea at the time just how that would become so significant to me. In my little business world? grow.grow.grow.Growth in learning and teaching [...]
