A Year of Favorite Photos

I don't even dare admit to how many photos I've taken this year. I can't even believe how many more photos I take now that I always have a phone with me, which is really wonderful! But right now, the only one that gets to enjoy them...is me. And even then, I forget. It's fun to see them again as I'm looking for 'this' or 'that' photo. Some I absolutely love and should print them out. But scrapbooking for me anymore is just too time consuming. You've all heard my story there. So what's a girl to when she wants to [...]

Much To Be Thankful For

  There are so many things to be thankful for. First and foremost, I'm thankful for my amazing family. I'm thankful for the simple things, like a roof over my head, hearing my kids laugh and making caramel french toast each night before a holiday. I'm also so thankful for all of you and the light you have brought into my life. I'm thankful for modern-day technology that allows us to all be friends--all over the world. Have a wonderful day with your loved ones, whether it's a holiday or not. Get stuffed. And Happy Thanksgiving! ( P.S. If you'd like [...]

Behind The Scenes

My husband. He's a pretty talented guy. He's done some amazing work over the years. You may remember when he worked with a bunch of guys to 'build' Jerusalem. And then there was the time he worked on a cemetery for Evermore. This is from 2013. I didn't realize until just now that I never posted the 2014 ones. What? He's quite skilled. He's even been to Italy to learn some of the old Venetian plaster ways. Earlier this year he was asked to work on the television series set for the brand new ABC drama, Blood and Oil, starring Don Johnson. Have [...]

This time of year brings on a lot of photo taking, especially family photos and relationships all around. That's why I...ehem...adore this page. I love how Laura has taken several photos of her daughters together. Sisters being sisters and all.  It catches just so much love between them. And they grow up so fast. You want to capture those moments of their interaction...and she just did it so well here! Love the combination of colors...especially the pale pink hearts! But it's their faces...they are just the best!       [ Designs | Picture That [Go Long] / Something To Say [...]

It Bears Repeating

Quotes. They are quotes for a reason. They make us laugh. They make us ponder. They resonate with our lives. They give us motivation. People say some pretty amazing things. And they bear repeating. I guess that's why they become a quote. I've kind of had an unusual past couple weeks. Dealing with a few kinds of things on the business side of life that I don't normally deal with. To be honest, it's been a little unnerving. It makes me ask why _____. I know that's all a little vague, but when I saw this quote from Gordon B. Hinckley, one [...]

International Shipping…Let’s Get This Show On The Road!

Alrighty folks. It's been a long time coming. But here's a rather large announcement for y'all! I've been holding off doing this until my new website is up and running, but I just could wait no  longer. I know, you're thinkin' the same thing, right? ;) Due to the nature of things, right now I only have this available for these few countries. Please bear with me as I am venturing into this...if you'll excuse the phrase...uncharted territory. I'm hoping that all is well when it comes to the shipping part. On one little test that I could do, it seems like all should [...]

Take Time To Stop and Smell the Embossing Powder

I've been in the middle of a big project. It's exciting. It's nothing 'creative' in the 'buy me' sense, but it's huge and thrilling, nonetheless. Yesterday I decided that I needed to stop what I was doing and create something. I was having too many choices thrown at me and the decision making was overwhelming. I decided I needed to do something simply. I had purchased these tags from Thatch and Thistle on Etsy and they were screaming at me to make some Christmas tags! minimalist. With the help of some KBS stamp combos and some American Crafts embossing powder, [...]
