The Party’s Almost Over

Today is the last day of our little birthday bash and I’d like to take a moment to say just how much I appreciate each and every one of you. Some of you have been with me from the very beginning and some of you are new to KBS.

I always enjoy reading your comments–on all social media. Your support for the crazy things I do. You’ve all been a big part of my life for the past six years and I can’t even begin to tell you how much that means to me.

Sending out big sloppy kisses to all of  ya!
Here’s to

[at least + hopefully] another six years!

Now it’s my turn to do a little sharing. This year I’ve been trying to focus on documenting more. It’s hard when it’s ‘your job’ to do this kind of stuff. It’s kind of like working on computers all day only to come home and have to do it for yourself or someone else. Sometimes it just takes the ‘fun’ out of it.

But I’ve been trying to be more intentional with my life and getting life documented. It’s actually been going really well in typing little notes each day on my computer. It hasn’t been going quite as well getting them into my book. But I am making an effort. :)

Which leads me to today’s spread in my weekly journal. This particular week was jam-packed with activity because of the holiday and because we had company and I really wanted to show more photos. So I included this Minc’d insert of the America Retro Subway Art to make it pretty and so that I could add photos to the other side. I just secured it in with some gold star washi tape (like of course I had to use that).

I had taken a serendipitous photo of the fireworks, which has become one of my favorite photos. The bokeh of the photo lent itself nicely for becoming the backdrop to my July title. I used the date numbers from Time Again and circled the numbers of this particular week. And I thought I had the digital version of Time Again, but I guess I don’t. Hmm…maybe I need to add that to the store.

I also added the line SO MUCH FUN from the Line By Line stamp sets next to a star. This is from a stack of ‘not needed’ stars that I’d cut on my Silhouette. Negative space. And I tell ya what, I’ve been using them…they are the perfect size and accent!

On the flip side to the card, I added photos from the week. I also used Time Again to stamp all the days of the week.

If you noticed I skipped a couple days, but that’s because I included more journaling for two specific days behind the photos that corresponded to those days. Just mixing it up. Making it a little interactive. Having fun and all that. :) It actually allowed me to have even more photos by hiding the journaling.

I really do love it when I get pages done in my book. It’s my own little personal challenge to get it all filled up. How satisfying will that be?

Wow. Sometimes I’m just baffled it’s been six years. So much has changed in that time! Thank you all for being such an amazing part of this journey!


Please note: The store and class issues have been resolved…for good, I hope. :) I’m extending the sale until Tuesday since the store wasn’t working yesterday.

…aaaaand, the store worked and now it doesn’t again. I should never  say ‘for good’. For that, I’m extending the sale all through next week. So sorry guys. I know it’s frustrating…it’s equally frustrating for me. Can’t wait to get my new store going. Boy. I can’t wait. :)
