Happy Holidays

December has been a busy month for me… I’m sure for most really. Nathan was sick at the beginning of the month, I started Christmas shopping, my daughter had an orchestra performance, Drew has a school party, and throw in a visit to Santa and wa-la… busy! My Christmas shopping is officially done and now I’m in treat making mode. I love to make them… I just wish we could give them all away! On this year’s agenda –

In the scrapbooking department… umm… about that… lol! My desk is covered with glass ornaments that I was bound and determined to make something with but have yet to touch them. that’s about it. I always have good intentions to create this time of year because my mind seems to be overloaded with ideas but since time is an issue, I do my best to write down those ideas because I know once the New Year arrives, I’ll have plenty of time. That “plenty of time” might be wishful thinking but I digress. I feel like I haven’t done anything in so long… I’m just going to enjoy the break and refocus so I can really enjoy scrapbooking and creating once again.

I am already looking forward to February and taking Library of Memories at BPS again. It will be my third time in the class. I am a pretty organized person by nature and my photos are very much in order but I will admit that I am lacking in the tagging department with my digital photos so this time around that will be my focus. If you have never taken this class and need to get your photos organized and a system in place, I highly recommend Library of Memories, Stacy is an incredible teacher. Speaking of Big Picture, I received the sweetest gift from them for Christmas… I can’t tell you how wonderful these ladies are!!!

I wish you all the best this holiday season. See you in 2009!!!

November recap

November was a busy month… Drew turned 7 on the 27th, I turned 30 + Drew the very next day, there was Thanksgiving (which was wonderful!), putting up Christmas decorations, and the fun of shopping began. Also, my owl die cut was released for Quickutz and I got the most amazing printer ever. I am sure December will be even busier!

I have not done a darn thing on the creative front and I am perfectly okay with that. I think I’ve been in serious need of a scrapbooking break and to start creating just for me again (as in, not for profit). I’ve stepped back from teaching for Big Picture Scrapbooking and won’t be moving forward with the last class I was working on. I love Big Picture, everyone behind the scenes, and what BPS stands for and they continue to have my full support.

Have a great December everyone!

Epson Artisan 800

Last week my new Epson Artisan 800 printer arrived, I set it up and started playing with it over the weekend. I think the most complicated thing about the setting up process was deciding where I was going to put it… so the set up wasn’t complicated at all!

I wanted to give a review of the machine because well, it’s awesome. I’ll start with my favorite thing – WiFi! Printing from my laptop without having to hook a cable up is so nice. My next favorite thing – fast photo printing. Actually, I had to laugh at myself because I clicked print, heard it turn on, then looked to watch it print. I waited and waited… and realized the turning it on sound I heard was actually the printing of the photo, I swear it took all of 8 seconds for a 4x6 (if that long!)! The photos are colorful, crisp, and vibrant and I love the fact that you only replace individual ink colors when they run out, not an entire cartridge.

Here are some other cool features (with some added commentary):

  • Print photos without a computer from popular memory card types (this will be nice when family is here, I’ll just be able to take their cards and print!)
  • Restore color to old, faded photos simply and quickly with Auto Photo Correction
  • Turn photos or drawings into personalized coloring book pages (I have no idea why but my 14 year old daughter thinks this is the coolest thing ever!)
  • Create personal notepaper with your photo as the background
  • Easily create and print photo layouts with various size photos on a single sheet of paper (this will be great for projects becaus I am always needed photos in different sizes for mini-books!)
  • Print college-ruled, wide-ruled and graph school paper
  • Print and copy directly onto ink jet printable CDs and DVDs (both my big kids thought this was awesome - it looks really cool!)
  • Full-featured faxing (my husband is thrilled about this feature because now he wont have to take what needs to be faxed to his office!)

Other stuff
Thank you to everyone who commented on my owl! Jacqui asked if I had given him a name and I actually have… I’ve been calling him Hootie! I should be receiving my final die with the packaging next week. I’m excited about this because my name is on the packaging. I knew it would be but it will be nice to see it just the same. Thanks again everyone!

Have a great day and be sure to check out the Epson Artisan 800!

my Quickutz perfect shape die is an…


I have waited forever to say that (at least it seems like forever!) so I am happy to finally get to share. I got to create a custom die for winning the Quickutz Perfect Shape contest (the winner was randomly chosen by the way).

I haven’t received the final die with the packaging yet (I just have a protype die) but the image can be viewed online. Quickutz is showing it differently than I would have. Three things… the head needs to be lower, the eyes should be closer together, and the feet should be closer together and behind the body. That is how I always pictured it in my head anyway. A view of how I thought the owl would be is pictured above.

Why an owl? For my Grandma…

(click here for a bigger image)

Here is an image of the owl from the Quickutz site…

So anyway… I am excited! AND I no longer have to keep it a secret. :-)

I hope ya’ll like it!

is Quickutz die day! I can't wait! As soon as  I see it posted on the Quickutz site, I'll post here.

It's almost time to share...

quick update

I’ve been a terrible blogger lately, my sincere apologies. I don’t foresee it getting better with the holidays coming either but I will do my best. I just wanted to offer up a quick update…

On Monday, I have scheduled myself to start a new project now class for BPS. I am happy about this. I am so ready to work on something new and offer up something fresh and exciting! Now that my guest design spots for Paper Posies and Fiskars Crafts are completed and I’ve finished reading Breaking Dawn, my new class will have all my focus!

I’m also counting down to November 17, my Quickutz die release day. It’s been forever since the process started and I can’t wait for everyone to see!

I’ve been on somewhat of a spending freeze… as in, I just haven’t been thinking about buying anything because I already have so much stuff. However, some of the new product coming out is really catching my eye so my list of scrapbooking wants is once again growing.

My wants

Have a great weekend!

Spooky Mini Book for

I am so happy to finally share this: I was asked to be a guest designer for Fiskars Crafts. I was thrilled for the opportunity and the product was so fun to work with. I loved the Cameo Appearance Squeeze Punch I got to play with – it’s the perfect size. I really enjoyed taking a trip down memory lane with all the photos of past Halloweens. my babies aren’t babies anymore!

You can check out my project on the Fiskars Crafts website here – Spooky Mini Book.

Have a great day!

challenge: give yourself a present

The present. What’s going on right now in your life. I challenge you to record it to remember it.
You have everything you need right now to be vibrant and fully engaged in the creative process. Join me and dozens of other scrapbookers in a challenge to “Give Yourself a Present.”
  • Snap ten photos of your life right now.
  • Compile these photos in a small mini-album.
  • Keep or carry this album with you (in your desk drawer or purse) for one year.
  • Promise to glance through the album every time you stumble upon it or pull it from your purse.
  • On October 1st, 2009, create a scrapbook page about your experience. (don’t worry, I’ll blog and help you remember!).
My mini-album:

I used a 3x3 mini album from We R Memory Keepers to create my mini book. I printed the photos out to 2.5" x 2.5" then matted them on 3" x 3" papers, added a note on the back of each, then slipped them into the included page protectors. For the cover, I used Heidi Grace paper and stickers and my Threading Water Border Punch.

There are lots of other scrapbookers participating in this challenge too, you can check the list out on Stacy J's blog.

I hope you join in and create your present today!

ScrapScene E-Book: Mini Book Projects

I just finished reading the ScrapScene E-Book: Mini Book Projects and I have to tell you, I am highly impressed! seriously! The amount of content in this book and the sheer number of techniques shared is amazing. There are tons of photos and very detailed directions – I love that! I love when the guesswork gets taken out and you can just have fun creating. It’s going to be really nice to have some many different types of albums referenced in one place. It also covers a variety of closure and binding methods which is very helpful. This E-Book is a welcome addition to my collection, it’s awesome!

Friday, August 08, 2008


The hiatus is over… for the most part… school stuff to deal with still… counting down to the 25th… so things will still be rather sporadic.

In other news… Colorado

We went on vacation. We did the family visits first (which I don’t actually consider a vacation) and then after that we headed to Colorado for some fun and relaxation. Here’s the great part… the kids had no idea! They thought we were heading back home. We were driving and my daughter kept asking why we were going west and why we’re seeing so many Colorado plates and not Oklahoma plates. Once when we stopped to eat she asked me if I thought the place had maps. After we passed the “Welcome to Colorful Colorado” sign there was no more denying it, lol! They were very surprised and excited!

We went to visit Kevin’s best friend Brian. We met up in Colorado Springs and then headed to Breckinridge. After that we went to Brian’s place in Denver. We had such an awesome time, it was so nice to get away.

Here are the highlights –
  • Royal Gorge Bridge – I’m not that fond of heights so this was huge for me. It really is a beautiful place and massive. I took way to many photos! There was a ton of stuff to do there… site seeing, animals, a little town… way cool!
  • Skycoaster – Everyone but Drew and I did this… it was crazy to watch!
  • Royal Gorge Helitour – I can’t believe we (I!) flew in a helicopter. It wasn’t so bad when the guy was just flying but the helicopter seemed to instantly turn into some freakish roller coaster ride and I immediately thought I was going to die. My stomach was not a happy camper… and with the ride to Breckenridge being so windy… we had to pull over twice. ugh.
  • Breckenridgeoh my gosh! amazing!!! We could see snow on the mountains from where we were staying and the weather was awesome. It’s so hot and humid where we live so to have it be 85 with no humidity in the middle of the afternoon was just crazy… loved it though! In the mornings, it was around 45 degrees. awesome! While in Breckendridge Drew lost a tooth so the Tooth Fairy had to make a special trip to get it… that made it so much more special for him.
  • Grand Timber Lodge – There is nothing like being in a hot tub outside looking at mountains on snow on them. I miss it already. The lodge was beautiful and had tons of amenities, I’d love to go back someday.
  • Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. good food. good times.
  • Shirt and Ernie’s – Because you have to buy a t-shirt (or two… or five, lol!) as a souvenier. loved the name.
  • Country Boy Mine – A fun tour we took of an old mine. It was about 42 degrees inside the mountain.
  • Heritage Square – This place has a huge Alpine Slide and you have to take a ski lift up the mountain to get to it… Kevin and Brian thought Drew would be able to do it by himself so off he went with me behind him on another sled. That boy was going full speed and I actually lost site of him. As I rounded the corner I was not surprised (but terrified non the less) to find him off his plastic sled, standing there screaming and crying bloody murder all covered in grass because he crashed. poor boy. He got a scrape on his arm and by his eye but he was a trooper… he actually finished the course with me and then did it a second time with Daddy.
  • Downtown Denver – Brian lives downtown and has the most amazing view. You can see Coors Field from his balcony. so very cool. While in Denver we did some basic site seeing, hung out, and played a lot of Wii. We all loved the Wii… hopefully Santa will bring one and a million accessories and games for Christmas. We also got to see my younger brother (he goes to Colorado Christian). I was definitely happy about that because I hadn’t seen him in forever. It was a short visit but nice.

All in all it was a fantastic trip and going to Colorado again (hadn’t been since I was little) meant a lot to me. I would LOVE to live there.

Okay, that’s it for now. Like I said, things will be sporadic… later!

scrapbook room happiness

I’ll be on a bit of a blogging hiatus until sometime in August so I wanted to leave you with some of my scrapbook room happiness. These are a few things in my room that always make me smile! Little bits of colorful pretty here and there make me happy!

Have fun creating!!!

my Quickutz die

oh my goodness! I am beyond excited! The prototype for my custom QuicKutz die arrived today. I’m totally doing a happy dance!!! It’s so CUTE!!! Thank you QuicKutz! I just got the die cut part, not the packaging so that will be a fun surprise in itself when I do get it. I assembled it and it’s adorable!!! I can’t wait until it’s officially released!

My apologies for not being able to share more details… it’s really hard not to do. I did however want to share my excitement. I feel extremely lucky!

Happy Wednesday!

inpiration and other stuff

Places I have been finding inspiration lately...
Other stuff
The three day weekend is upon us! are you ready? I’ve never been much for fireworks but the husband and kids love them so fireworks here we come! Well, they’ll do that and I’ll take photos.
On my agenda for today – I’m going to get the natural blonde put back in my hair! ha! yeah! Both the new bookshelves from IKEA are officially assembled so I’ll be unpacking all our books and getting them organized. I’d like to play with my scrap stuff too but I have a feeling the day is just going to disappear (which often happens when everyone is home!) and I’ll have to wait until tomorrow.

Something exciting (for me anyways!)
I ordered myself a little somethin’ somethin’! I’m so excited, I’m getting a new camera! I was wanting something smaller than my Kodak that would actually fit in my purse. I will say that the Kodak was a great first digital camera when I got it (about 4 years ago) but I am definitely ready for an upgrade and am going with a Canon Powershot SD850 IS. It’ll be here next week – I can’t wait!!!

I hope you have a safe and happy 4th!

Thursday, July 03, 2008

more stuff to share: a layout and a card

I am so happy with how this layout turned out! I created it using the June Scarlet Lime Kit/Mini Kit. I also used my Threading Water Border Punch and Lil Davis Chipboard and Glitter Glaze. The Glitter Glaze is awesome stuff, it just paints on... no mess!

This card was also created with the June Scarlet Lime Kit/Mini Kit. I used the June Scarlet Lime sketch created by Sonda. The stamp for let's keep in touch is from the "Just Between Friends" set made by Fiskars.

Happy Thursday!

Scrapbooking from the Inside Out

I received an email about an new kit club – about self-exploration and scrapbooking – something that really interests me, and wanted to share the details. Here’s the info…

Scrapbooking from the Inside Out, founded by published designer and instructor Rachel Kaufman, is a kit club, an inspirational source and an online community for scrapbookers who want to explore their inner lives and deepest thoughts and dreams. Scrapbooking from the Inside Out advocates Rachel's trademarked approach to scrapbooking – starting with the emotion. It’s ‘Scrapbook Therapy’ – using scrapbooking as a means to self-exploration, self-expression and self-discovery. Each month, the site, and kit, will focus on a specific emotional theme.

July's kit and inspiration will focus on ‘Freedom.’ Unlike any other kit club, Scrapbooking from the Inside Out offers an online ‘Inspiration’ webpage with music links, photos of great art, quotes and journaling prompts to encourage personal exploration through the emotion. The site will also include techniques, samples and challenges from a stellar international design team and special celebrity guests to help jumpstart creativity. The site includes a forum for sharing ideas, experiences and feelings, as well as a user gallery where scrapbookers can post their pages and projects to help themselves and others be inspired.

The mission of Scrapbooking from the Inside Out is to help scrapbookers explore their inner worlds and motivate them to express themselves on the scrapbook page with greater depth, to reach for scrapbooking as support, encouragement and catharsis in processing life’s pleasurable and difficult moments. Scrapbooking from the Inside Out creates a totally new space in the scrapbooking world for sharing thoughts and feelings in the way that only scrapbookers can.

Be sure to check out their blog when you have a chance.

Happy Crafting!

did you know?

that’s it for me! I’ve got to finish some tags today and hopefully dive into my Scarlet Lime kit that is waiting for me… I don’t seem to multi-task well and can only work on one project at a time usually. must finish tags…

Enjoy your weekend!

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

layouts and other stuff

I was so excited to finally get my mixer... I thought the Lil' Davis paper really made it pop (Castaway collection). I also used Heidi Grace Alpha Stickers, Lil Davis Felt Buttons, Heidi Grace Dimensional Flowers and Cardstock Journal Mounts. it came together in a snap!

Have a good one!

stamp storage

This is how I currently store my stamps... it’s pretty self explanatory. All my stamps live in a cabinet. You can also see one of my favorite stamping accessories – the Fiskars Stamp Presslove this tool!
My acrylic stamps are stored in a 3-ring binder. A cheaper alternative to using a transparency is to use plastic page dividers and to cut the tabs off… I did that for a few sets because I can be a rather frugal girl! lol!

I use this container I found at Wal-Mart a few years back for my unmounted rubber alphas.

That’s about it. Sometimes things get shifted around but nothing major. I would eventually like to have a shelf where I can have my mounted images out and visible but that probably won’t happen any time soon. I’m a very visual person… if I can’t see it, I won’t use it.

Enjoy your Wednesday!

Friday, June 06, 2008

new stuff to share

The above card was actually created using a sketch created by Sonda T. The Scenic Route Chipboard Flowers have been coated with Li’l Davis Glitter Glazethis is the coolest stuff ever. sparkly and shiny with hardly any mess! love it! The “sisters” is from a Cosmo Cricket Rub-on set. The BoBunny dot paper is a favorite too… I’m a dot fan.

For years I avoided sketches, I’m not sure why. I guess part of me felt like I was cheating or something… who knows! After I finally tried a sketch here and there, I started to love them. They are a great starting off place if you feel stuck or unmotivated or just want to give yourself an assignment to focus on.

I love the Scrapworks chipboard that was included in the kit, so cute and versatile.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Our Life | Fiskateer blog

I had so much fun creating this album for the Fiskateer blog… I am loving the Cloud 9 Sunrise Smoothie papers, they are so easy to work with! The album is 12” x 6” acrylic (which was made by my husband) and has smaller flip pages inside in various sizes. I used my Threading Water Border punch too… I can’t even tell you how much I love this punch. This project was so fun to create and even though I used a lot of different supplies, it came together easily. It’s just a matter of doing things in steps.

You can check out all the details and more pages HERE!

Hope you like it!

28 Days - Photo Day 28

I actually took this picture on day 16 of the class but I think it counts because it was taken during class!

I can’t believe it’s the last day! I’ve had such a fun time teaching my 28 Days class and looking at the gallery at BPS, my students are awesome! Now I just need to get to work on something new.

more later…

28 Days - Photo Day 27

I remember when I could keep on top of everything with just my datebook but now I need the big calendar that we keep on the side of the fridge because it seems everyone always has something to do. If I didn’t keep it where everyone could see it, we’d probably be lost! My datebook still gets used, but it’s pretty much for the stuff I have to take care of… clean, chauffer, create, whatever! oh look… in two weeks there is overlapping sports camps… that’ll be fun!

Happy Tuesday!

28 Days - Photo Day 26

Our master bedroom is functional… and that’s about it. It is also our workout area… this photo is of my morning view after the elliptical and strength training.

Here’s to the first day of all the kids being home for summer!

28 Days - Photo Day 23

Nathan’s Lego collection! I didn’t realize when I was taking the photo that you can see his medal and hat collections too… bonus!

Other stuff
Today was the kiddos last day of school. The big ones are going to Galveston with Kevin tonight for an annual Sand Castle Competition that his company participates in, which is tomorrow. Little man and I are going to stay home and watch Alvin and the Chipmunks. should be a nice weekend!

Here’s to summer!

28 Days - Photo Day 22

It might sounds silly, but it thrills me to know end that in our new house, I can close the doors and hide the laundry and everything associated with it! In our old house, the laundry area (it wasn’t even big enough to be a room… the washer and dryer were actually across from each other!) was right off the kitchen and it made me crazy that you could see everything. not anymore! Our laundry room is upstairs next to the master bedroom. Laundry is still a constant (never-ending!) chore but at least now, I can close the doors and not have a constant reminder of it.

Happy Thursday!

28 Days - Photo Day 21

Prettiness in my backyard… I couldn’t make up my mind which flowers and plants I liked the best so I tried to get as many as I could in the picture! The bush/tree thing in the far back has these pretty, long, purple things on it – no idea what they are called – I am so not a green thumb! I do know the yellow flowers are hibiscus, I like those.

Here’s to counting down the days to Friday… the kiddos last day of school!

Tuesday, May 27, 2008

28 Days - Photo Day 20

As soon as the kids were all gone this morning for school, I took this photo. I cleaned up on Sunday because the clutter was driving me crazy (and because my daughter was having two friends spend the night!) so it isn’t in to bad of a state right now. You can see the bookshelf from IKEA waiting to be assembled… next on the list of things to buy, a new TV stand! Kevin’s pillow, he moved to the couch because he wasn’t sleeping well… poor guy. Drew’s color box and papers (he says he's making a homemade coloring book!) and a toy snake with a toilet paper roll around its neck (not sure what’s up with that!). and that’s our living room!

Happy Tuesday!

Saturday, May 24, 2008

28 Days - Photo Day 17

One of the most colorful things in our house would be Drew’s room... eventually his walls will match the comforter. Four walls, four colors… green, yellow, blue, and orange!

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Sing it with me, “SpongeBob SquarePants!”

Thursday, May 22, 2008

28 Days - Photo Day 15

My comfy (and very worn out!) slippers! I think if my husband had his way, they would go straight to the trash. never I say…

Other stuff
I’ve felt pretty crappy since Saturday. I finally went to the doctor today and now have antibiotics. Things are always fuzzy when I enter the land of the sinus infection so hopefully I’ll be back to normal soon. It’s hard to keep up with everything when you feel blah!

Here’s to feeling better!

28 Days - Photo Day 12

Love this photo of some pictures displayed in our home… it’s hard to tell but on the right are the kids school photos and on the left is a great big light house pictures given to me from my mom (it was always displayed in the house I grew up in). The far picture is a sketch of a girl and her dog. This picture once belonged to my Grandparents and my mom brought it down to me on her first visit to our new home. love this view… always makes me happy!

Enjoy your week!

28 Days - Photo Day 8

Water, water, water! I drink two of these big `ol bottles a day!

Other stuff
I’m planning on going to Drew’s school later for the book fair… apparently he’s very excited about an Iron Man and Pokémon book. I’ve got my May Scarlet Lime kit spread out on my table and I’m hoping to create something today… love this kit! Here’s something fun, I’ve got a layout in the newest Scarlet Lime Newsletter... that was fun to see! :-) Everything is in full swing for Nathan’s slumber party tomorrow with more to do… 8 boys! I know they’ll all have an awesome time… should be crazy and loud!

28 Days stuff
Today is officially the start of week 2 of 28 Days and that means there is now an audio file available for enrolled students. Just click on the "audio" link at the top of the classroom at BPS and it will take you right to the files.

I leave you with this… never watch Love Actually while on an elliptical machine because you might start laughing so hard that you might lose your balance and look like a complete idiot while trying to hang on for dear life… not that this happened to me or anything, lol!

28 Days - Photo Day 7

Last night’s dinner… roast! I typically reserve food like this for the weekend but on Monday I discovered that SOMEONE (who shall remain nameless!) forgot to close the freezer door in the garage all the way so I had to move everything to the fridge in the kitchen and I’ve been cooking like a mad woman ever since!

more later…

28 Days - Photo Day 4

My Nike's for working out (and used everyday for that reason!)... so comfortable!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mama's out there! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Here's to a new pair of 8 lb. dumbbells and 6 killer t-shirts! You have no idea what perfect gifts these were for me... they know me so well!

It's nice to be loved!

28 Days – Photo Day 2

Here’s something that I miss about our old house… the mailbox right in front of the house. The new house has one of those community mailbox set ups… it’s down the street and around the corner. I am not a fan!

Happy Friday! Here’s to air conditioning!
