    scrapbooking an entire year in five hours

    A while back I posted a picture of my finished Project Life 2013 album that I completed in about 5 hours. Later, Becky Higgins reposted the picture to her Facebook, twitter and Instagram and there were many comments that followed. Some didn’t believe that I did it in 5 hours. Some asked how I did it. Others said they could never do it. So, I’m here to give a few tips and tricks on how I did it, so that maybe you feel like you could too. I’ve done Project Life for 4 years now. I used to do traditional scrapbooking with papers and embellishments, but it got to be…

I used to watch this movie nearly every Saturday night with my best friend Chrissy as…

Confession: most of the time I let him …but we’ve also taken some walks/bike rides to the park for a bit and are the only ones there.

    raindrops on leaves

    I think there is something so beautiful and pure about a water drop. It amazes me how it can be perfectly domed and raised, without simply falling off of the leaf or petal. It just sits there until something (or someone) moves it, and then it rolls off into the grass. Pure beauty. One day last week we had a drizzly, chilly fall day. It misted on and off all day, resulting in some pretty perfect water drop formations on the leaves around the yard.Little E found this one for me and made me take the picture. I love how the little one just rests atop the larger leaf. Although…
