Tag! You’re It!

I’ve been a tag and clip collector for years. Years.  I have quite the pile...or rather, baggie full of assorted bits of paper and piles of various clips. I’ve collected all shapes and sizes and they’ve been sitting there-mostly collecting dust--as a constant inspiration to my little creative world over time. A few have come to fruition here and there and some have been waiting for this day.   Yay! When it takes me a while to create a certain subject, I ask myself, ‘Why didn’t I get this done before?’ I guess it’s just a matter of priorities and [...]

Brown Paper Packages Comes To An End? (+ Giveaway and Flash Friday)

Say it ain't so! This week has seriously gone way faster than I ever expected. I have a feeling the rest of the year is going to do the same. Sometimes we just need to slow down our pace of life. I think I've been better about that this year, but I have my moments still. A little too many lately, it seems. breathe. Okay, that being said, we have a full day ahead! :) Today I'm sharing a couple projects that I worked on for this week. I wish I could have made the rest that are in my [...]

Brown Paper Packages….or Bags + Another Giveaway

Well. It's happened. Goodbye 47. Hello 48.  I've been digging my 40s. Not had a problem with them at all. It's a good time in life. Kids are a bit older. The pace of life begins to slow down a bit...kind of. It still has its moments, but that may be more self-inflicted due in large part to owning my own business. At any rate, other than this funky shoulder and getting 'older vision', I can't complain too much. It's 'turning 50' that I think will get to me somewhat. I always looked at those people in my neighborhood that [...]

Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With String + Giveaway

This song has literally been in my head for months. Months. At the beginning of this year I bought a roll of brown postal paper. Oh, the thoughts I've had in my head for using this. Hence, the song. I see the roll. I see something in kraft. I hear the song. I knew I wanted to personally do a post around this theme, but could never seem to get my 'packages' in a row. Until now. There's a reason for everything and I'm so glad I could never make it happen just for me because it just got sooo much [...]
