Home + Family Is Where It’s At

Can you believe 'Thanksgiving Eve' is one week from today? I can taste all the goodness right now. So excited for turkey, homemade stuffing, cheesy potatoes, sweet potato souffle, pumpkin and/or apple pie...oh my, the list goes on and on! Oh, and in our house on holiday mornings, we do Caramel French Toast, which is made the night before and ready to pop in the oven. Mmmmm..... This time of year brings thoughts to home, family, friends...all the love...all the grateful things in your life. And it also brings us to this adorable spread by Miss Laura.       [...]

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 [...]

New Life Scripted Stamps

Sometimes ya just gotta script out your life by adding flair-ee words and phrases to photos to document it. Am I right? (just agree with me. ;) ) That's what this month's stamps, Life Scripted, is all about. (And hello? Speaking of 'this month'...it's September!) I love mixing handwritten items with great fonts. I think the two just go hand and hand. And our Miss Maggie has done a most excellent job at showing just how that's done with the new stamps! Take it away Maggie... Now that my kids are back in school, I've been taking a few hours each [...]

April Showers

It's been a long time since we've had rain 'round these parts. But today and yesterday have been rainy and cool. We're talkin' upper 70s and low 80s for the high. Yay! The respite won't last long, however, as we get back up to our average mid to upper 90s in the next couple days. But I tell ya, it's been glorious and I'm enjoying the heck out of it for as long as it lasts. And it couldn't have been better timing for showing of this darling April Showers page by Paige! Here she is to tell ya all [...]

Documenting Senior Photos

Believe it or not, it's that time again. I'm starting to see back-to-school commercials and I know our schools start about five weeks from now. Some in the nation do year-round school and will start back up in a couple weeks. It seems like you just start getting into summer when you have to start thinking about the next school year. That's so not fair. :) And senior photos--or any start-of-school photos--is on that 'to-do' list. It's so fun to see their progression. And so fun to get to document all those cute photos, like Laura did here of her [...]

Love You Girls

June is coming to a close folks. Two more days until July.  Can you even believe it? How am I gonna get all the trips done that I want to do? Okay, so maybe most of those are just daydreaming trips, but still... ;) And it's nice to really be back. Sorry for the jump-the-gun excitement over 'being back' without knowing there was one more very long step to complete the switch of hosting sites. But we're back and the speed is just wonderful! I've also heard from several of you who have expressed your enthusiasm for it as well. :) It's [...]

27 | Sheree Forcier

We have another treat for you today from Sheree Forcier! Sheree first dazzled us with her gorgeous travelers notebook spread featuring the Travelers Pack: Splendid kit (here). And now today she has another amazing creation using the same kit on a scrapbook page! Take a look.           Incredible, right? I love how she stamped the little camera and popped it off the page. And all the bits of layering....sigh. This page just says happiness to me. Let's see what Sheree has to say: I love the that Traveler's Packs aren't just for traveler's notebook spreads!  I've used [...]

Mickey Mouse | Kim Jeffress

Is it really the last day of the week? Say it ain't so! Does anyone else's summer seem to be flying by, yet it seems like we just barely started? I feel like I've crammed so much into two weeks that I hope it never really stops. The more opportunities I have to get outside, the better! :) Alas, it truly is the last day of our week with Kim Jeffress. I'm so sad. I've just enjoyed the heck out of having her here and sharing her amazing creations. Shall we look at her final piece?       Okay....seriously??? [...]

Team Heidi | Kim Jeffress

It's another beautiful day with another beautiful page from our guest designer, Kim Jeffress! Aren't her pages just amazing? Take a look at today's....and those ginormous roses! (Yellow roses are my favorite, in case you didn't know. ;) )         Let's hear what Kim has to say: If you know me you know I love the color yellow so the Travelers Pack: Splendid was just the perfect kit to work with. I printed that stunning yellow floral print onto 12 x 12 cardstock then trimmed it down a touch and adhered it to my white background cardstock. I [...]
