It's been a long time since we've had a Friday Freebie and with today being St. Patrick's Day and all? Lucky us...it's the perfect time for one! Three sweet little 3x4 card choices. Use them as a card in Project Life or trim them square and add them to your planner or traveler's notebook. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
It's been 12 years since I lost my mom. She was only 65 at the time. So many times I think, 'Gee, my mom would get a kick out of this.' I always miss her. So on this, the day of celebrating mothers, be sure to give your mom or your kids--or the favorite women in your life--extra hugs and take a picture with them! I wish I had more pictures with my mom. Today is a perfect time to do it. It's your day to be pampered. Enjoy it! And you can download this freebie to use as a last [...]
I’ve been very troubled over the past couple of months hearing the craziness going on in our country. Like, as in scared. A lot of it seems to stem from the political side of life, which I won’t get into or share my feelings there. But I will say that I’m afraid for our country. I’m afraid how people are acting...and that people think it’s acceptable. Every day it seems like there is something terrible going on or being said. Where did our kindness and respect go for one another? Normally I try not to pay attention to all the [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
I think that one of my most favorite things is an unexpected moment. Something that surprises you. Something that makes you happy. Something that makes you go wow. And that's why this needed to be done. It's just a plain black-text PNG file that you can take into Photoshop, change the color, and print as needed. (For a video on how to do this, click HERE.) This is the last Friday Freebie for the summer. Can you believe it's over??? And speaking of things being 'over', there's only a couple more days to sign up for The History Project before registration is [...]
I've had this word in my head. I don't know if it's because of the time of year or the sarcastic life I lead, but it was screaming to be done. Use it on an outdoors page, for a meal of fresh produce, or when you're just feeling cheeky. Speaking of fresh produce...I had to put it to use on this photo. :) And don't forget...The History Project starts Monday!
I saw this written somewhere and thought this was quite appropriate for the week. I just want to say thank you to everyone for all your wonderful support this week! You are truly amazing! I also thought I'd just clarify that business is doing very well in all aspects--stamps, classes, everything. It was just one of those other Avenues in Business City that was being ventured down and it apparently got shut down due to circumstances beyond one’s control. So no need to worry, I'm not going anywhere. And can you believe the time is almost here! The Designer Edition class starts Monday. [...]
This week is our girls camp where my besties, Kristy Banks and Lisa Bearnson head up to the mountains with our daughters and talk and play games and make stuff and just have a good ol' time. And this year, we get to listen to this the whole day. So is it any wonder why this needed to be the freebie for today? And you know how I love to see what my little machine can do. One is just under a half inch and one is just over a quarter inch. Pretty sweet, right? Cut with American Crafts cardstock, [...]
It's no secret that I love being outdoors. I may not always get to be outdoors, but if I can sit up in the mountains with the swaying trees and the sound of the birds or by an ocean listening to the waves as them come crashing to shore…then I'm a happy camper. I thought this phrase was so appropriate for this time of year. Whether you get a trip up the canyon, head to the beach, or just enjoy time sitting in your backyard and appreciate the nature there…it's all connected. We are all connected. And of course I [...]
