Winter Fun | Scrapbook Layout



I cleaned up my scrap space this afternoon and then had to mess it right back up again creating this little layout! :) It's my routine, mess it up...clean it up, mess it right back up again.

Zoey was hit hard with a stomach bug here this week which meant extra craziness for me. I missed some hours of my shift on Thursday at the library as I wasn't comfortable leaving her home alone when not feeling well, and that meant I went in early on Friday to try and re-coup those hours since it's Christmastime and well, every penny counts this time of year. Not a fun week! Hoping that I don't end up coming down with it now here this week. However I know that if anyone does, it will be me. I was right in the line of fire for all of it after all. Blah..blah. Not fun to be sick!!'s to hoping for good health and good cheer, (I think I may need well wishes for both!).


Story + Design with Get It Scrapped


I am very excited to share that I have been invited to work with members of the Get It Scrapped community later this month! Amy Kingsford reached out to me awhile back asking if I would be interested and I immediately replied with a YES! 

This month we're telling stories of INTENTION and exploring the design aspect of CONTRAST. There will be design tips, page templates/sketches, inspiration, videos and more! Saying yes to this project meant that I had to stretch my bravery when it comes to being creative in my life. I had to learn some new things, like how to record myself speaking and then sharing that in audio format so it could be added to a video. 

The class will be in the membership December 14th. And if you're not a member, you can always join us at:

Thanks for joining me in my excitement! This is turning into a pretty great end of the year!


Simple Holiday Table Decor/Table Settings

You guys! I had to share this SUPER SIMPLE little craft for easily jazzing up your holiday table or for creating quick table settings (just add names to your trees). Simply cut scraps of holiday patterned papers into triangles, and adhere them together with a toothpick in between (for the tree trunk). Stick the other end of the toothpick into a Hershey's kiss and you have a little tree!! So adorable and EASY! Add a star on the top if you wish.

Enjoy your day!!


Super Simple Holiday Button Tag Ideas


I had to come up with some simple ideas for gift tags for a holiday program we're having this week at the library. I thought that using buttons would be simple enough, even for those that may not think of themselves as necessarily being crafty. You can pick up various colors of buttons at the dollar store or even Walmart and the sentiments need not be stamped, they could be printed off of the computer and adhered to the tags as well.

I created three little samples for this, as you can see here...

I thought the snowman would be fun for little ones to help put together too!

Wishing you much peace in the days ahead as we are quickly approaching the countdown to Christmas!
