Coming this Friday to my shop...

Enjoy the sale and have a fabulous day!


Times They Are A Changing


Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.
"The Times They Are A-Changin" -Bob Dylan

Change has never been an easy thing for me but I have learned that I must embrace it as it comes.  I must "start swimmin'" or I'll "sink like a stone"!

I have the most excellent opportunity to move to a new shop.  I will now be selling my designs at Digital Scrapbook Studio aka The Studio!!!!  It's such a WONDERFUL place!!!  I'm beyond thrilled to be there and to be bringing you my designs from that shop!

Not all of my designs are there, but keep returning as they will be coming soon!  I'm having a grand opening sale there right now...30% off!!!  Looking forward to seeing you there!!!



TBT :: 4 Years Ago

Every year when December hits it's the same...we get slammed with the hustle and bustle that comes this time of year.  Open houses, birthdays, parties, and this and that.  Everything in me just wants to put the breaks on and sit on the couch, drink something warm and watch Christmas movies like Charlie Brown.

And so to make the burden a little easier I've taken a little break from work.  It was the only thing I had control over.  The minute I did that I felt a lot better.  The other thing I did was give up on my December Daily this year.  I even went and bought a template pack from Ali Edwards this year!!!  Oh well.  As soon as I gave that up I could feel the stress leave me.  I may still do something with it but it will be a toned down version.

The last thing I did was give up trying to decorate my house in a timely manner.  No.  I still don't have my tree up.  Gasp.  I tried to get it up right after Thanksgiving.  It just didn't happen.  I felt huge heaps of guilt about it and then I thought, is that REALLY what Christmas is all about?

Lucky has been having some issues with his back leg.  That has been a huge stressor.  Ava was gone for several days at the beginning of the month for a school trip.  Laney's bday always seems to sneak up on me.  And so I sit here listening to Christmas music.  Just relaxing.  I HAVE wrapped presents.  And that's about it.  And that's ok with me.

I decided to look back 4 years ago and see what I could find for a TBT post.  I found a delightful photo of the girls when we took Laney out for her birthday.


Enjoy your day!!!




#TBT :: Love Fall

In case you didn't know...Fall is my favorite season.  Now that it is October it is finally cooling down here.  It is snowing in the mountains.  I caught a glimpse of them today in between the clouds and saw the white peaks!  Ski season will be upon us! Meantime, the leaves are starting to change…

On My Mind :: Change

If you know me at all you know that I hate change. But if I know life, it's that change happens and that sometimes it is for the better.  Right now I'm in a season of some changes.  One was my website.  That change was really painful at first but turned out to be really…

20 Years of Friends

Apparently it was 20 years ago that Friends debuted.  I saw this posted the other day and thought to myself...Friends didn't start when I was 10!!!  Wait...I'm 40.  Crap. Friends always has been and always will be one of my favorite shows.  I've watched all the episodes numerous times.  Probably my all time favorite one...or…
