Getting Ready For Spring

Okay, so we were having spring-like weather, with temps in the 60s...and then winter decided to show up. Nighttime temps in the teens and lots of snow? That's December + January weather. March will be here in two days! And did you see the snow in Rome yesterday? Crazy! With spring comes planning for many people. Lots of vegetables and flowers to be prepared. I've been seeing some seed-sowing posts lately even. And today, we get to see a bit of planning from Marcy!       [ Stamps | Farmer's Market ]   Loooove her list making combined with [...]

Valentine's Day was just one week ago. Do you have some documenting to do? A little love to share in paper form perhaps? Well, then maybe this darling spread from Paige will help you give you the much needed inspiration!   I have a new layout to share for the Kerri Bradford Design Team featuring one of the images in her Just My Type set paired with my Pick-Me-Up collection!     I started by die cutting the title from the Just My Type set using my Silhouette Cameo 3 and the B-side of Paper 20 which is a very light blush pink ledger paper - usually I cut everything from white cardstock so [...]

52 Favorites — Laura Style

There's quite the rage going on right now with a 52 Favorites project started by Paper Issues. And many-a peeps are using their travelers notebooks to document said favorites. Even our Miss Laura has now joined the TN craze and is documenting her 52 favorites in one. Yay Laura! Take a look at what she's been up to!         [ Designs | Background Basics (circle background).  Stamps | Brooklyn Etc. / One Fine Day / Gather Together / Thankful ]   How fun is that??? Love how there's continuity, yet each page is unique in its own [...]

Paris: What I’m Taking To Document

  We may have a little time still before our romantical 30th anniversary trip to Paris, but preparations have begun--the researching, the booking, the plotting of days... All that fun stuff you get to do before a trip, right? You all know I love to travel. I love taking photos and experiencing new places. And I’ve created many-a travel journals for these journeys. Most often, I take small handful of supplies to document while I’m there.  But truth be told, I never get much past the first couple days. I will type up my thoughts of the day, but getting [...]

Feelin’ The Love

Happy Valentine's Day one and all! This is such a sweet day...and I'm not talking about all the candy. It's the one day a year that we celebrate love. And today we're celebrating some love with a brand new stamp set available for preorder. Say hello to  Feelin' The Love. I know we're a little late and all since January was not kind to me, but I still wanted a fun 'love' set of stamps this month. :) A couple of these phrases--like love you the mostest--are something I've said to my kids since they were little. So there's a bit of personal [...]

A Little Love

All my kids are now in their twenties--with one being married and living away. As they got older, it became tradition for me to get them a 'made from scratch' Valentine cookie or on occasion a Cravings cupcake because...who really needs all that candy? The girls especially didn't want a bunch of candy around. (wink wink) On occasion I'll find some other sort of token. This year, some super fun socks caught my eye. And now all I'm thinking is how cute would they be in these card holders that our Miss Maggie made!     Now that my kids [...]

Celebrating Love With Love

It's a big day here in the land of Bradford. Today hubs and I celebrate thirty years of marriage.     Thirty years sure does seem like a monumental milestone in this day and age. I can't tell you how many friends of my kids have already gotten divorced after not even five years. I wish I could say we have all the answers on how to last this long, but I don't. I don't believe anyone can have a perfect marriage. There are always ups and downs--usually more ups than downs, I hope. But I think what's worked for [...]

This Pretty Much Sums Up My January

  This is pretty sad. I can't even believe I wrote nothing in my Fundamentals Planner for January. Not only that, I haven't written in my journal either! So not like me! This terrible cold I had in January pretty much brought everything to a halt. And the worst part of it is, it's hard to get back into a routine now. I feel like I have no creative mojo and even less motivation to do anything. What is wrong with me? I have ideas. Some come together. Some don't. February stamps are late, but will be available for preorder starting [...]

California Soul

California Soul is a song I love to listen to. Great song. Great lyrics. We were definitely groovin' all day long on our excursion through parts of California we'd never seen before. If you're unfamiliar, use the link above to listen to it. Love it. Just the inspiration needed to make this California Soul printable.
