Food, Glorious Food.

I do love me some glorious food. And with the holidays just around the corner, I can't wait for all those tasty bits that only seem to come 'round this time of year. We often take pictures of the big Thanksgiving feast or Christmas dinner. But I also love documenting about food all through the year. I often include what we make for Sunday dinner or where Dan and I go to eat out--I think it's incredibly important to include in your story. It gives your posterity a little 'taste' of your life. ;) That's why I'm totally in love [...]

Deck The Halls Stamps

We have another great showcase of the brand new stamps for this month. This time Paige is showing Deck The Halls off in fine fashion!       Oh what fun it is! I loooove this! This is freakin' adorable! Here's Paige to tell you how it all came together: I began by die cutting three Office Tags from smooth white cardstock and the hole punch part from kraft cardstock. For the floral wreath tag I stamped a whole bunch of leaves, pine cones, and holly berries in their usual colors (greens, reds, and browns) onto smooth white cardstock. Instead [...]

A Birthday Surprise!

This weekend I said hello to 51. What? I surely can't be that old. I swear I'm only like 31, right? I can't believe how fast time flies! I had a lovely weekend with my family. Friday night Dan and I went out to Chilis on Kass. Saturday (the official day) we all went to see a movie. I had to work a little and prepare a lesson for church, so it was pretty much like every other day. ;) Sunday Jordan made curry for dinner and we had chocolate cream pie for dessert. And Tuesday I go out with [...]

The Ballpark

My early life with Dan was spent at the ballpark--from the time we were dating to our early years with kids. He played both slow and fast pitch as well as when he hit thirty, he played in the Roy Hobbs league, baseball for men over 30. This guy has an arm on him, I tell ya. I've seen him gun it clear out at the back of left field to home plate. We'd go to tournaments for the weekend in other cities and we always had a good time. He doesn't really play anymore, but those were good days [...]

Destination SF

Oh boy. I wish that title meant I was going to San Francisco. This girl could not only use a trip, but has been craving to travel. We'd talked of going to the Kalispell/Glacier area again at the end of August and it was a good thing it never came together because, hello...fires. The west side is basically closed. I just can't believe all the devastation going on right now in so many places. Fires, hurricanes...it's just so saddening. All the destruction in both beauty and people's lives. I think this year has had more than its fair share. Time [...]

The Final Summer Freebie | Gift Card Striped Envelope

Labor Day has come and gone and summer is officially over--regardless of the 98 degree temps we seem to be having. Someone needs to tell Utah that this is a fall month and those are July temps. I want to thank you all for your enthusiasm over this summer's Weekly Freebie. It's been so incredibly fun to see thousands of you stop by this summer to pick the freebie--it's like my own little virtual vacation spot. So many people from so many countries have taken a 'summer vacation' here. People have visited from the US, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, [...]

Weekly Summer Freebie and Halloween Stamp Preorder

Can you believe summer is coming to an end? September. Hello. Friday. I can't even believe it! Not too long ago my daughter pointed out to me that Joshua Tree National Park is about 1-plus hours away from where my dad lives. All this time. I had no idea. Never really looked at where it was and so it never occurred to me to go there.     Well, guess what we're gonna do next time we go down to visit! I've had this place on the brain and so this week's freebie is in that 'desert' genre...it's a Succulent. [...]

Weekly Summer Freebie | A Good Book

  With school starting and the fact that I haven't read for a while, books have been on my brain. I need to read a book. I have a couple that have been waiting for me. And if anyone needs something to read, you should check out my daughter's room. She's got her own little library going on. So this week's freebie, A Good Book, is for all those who are trying to get in their last bit of summer freedom in reading at the beach or in the backyard lounge chair...or for anything school related. :) And are you [...]

Weekly Summer Freebie | That Summer Feeling

  I've done my best to enjoy the last little bit of that summer feeling, both in atmosphere and in creativity. We took a quick trip to California this weekend to visit family and to drive back with Jordan, who was working in the horse program at a Girl Scout Camp in Big Bear, California. Oh, and we may have rented a Honda CRV to go down through Kass' work. I wonder what car we might be buying next. ;) Today's freebie, That Summer Feeling, comes in the regular cut files and PNG file, but also includes a bonus watercolor print, [...]

Weekly Summer Freebie | Lazy Days Background

  When I hear words associated with summer, they immediately put a smile on my face--except hot or heat. Those don't do anything for me in the smile category. I don't do heat. So I thought it was only appropriate to make a background with a plethora of happy summer words. The Lazy Days Background kit comes in 12 x 12", 8.5 x 11" and Travelers Notebook (4.125 x 8.25") sizes--in SVG, DXF and PNG file formats. There is much to do with these fine little backgrounds in all your summer keeping memories.   And on another note, I apologize for [...]
