Cards for Sale...

This card was created with a preteen/teenage guy in mind. There is such a shortage of boy cards out there-I aim to change that. This card features stars, sliver and black inking, and a matching envelope.

Price: 3.00 (sold)

A Colorful Summer Layout!

This layout was done with double and triple matting, some fun chipboard accents and a vellum square with a saying about children. The square is anchored with four bronze brads. This layout can be created for you!

What a pair!

Here we are at Bunker Beach last summer..this page has ice cream cones from Indie Art, ribbon, stickles and double matting.

Getting Ready for the SWARM

What is a SWARM you may ask? A SWARM is a gathering of 2 or more people who use the Cricut machine while scrapbooking. Could I scrap without my Cricut? Probably. Do I want to? No. Sean got me this machine for Christmas 2006 and I have never looked back. It won product of the year in 2006 and is to scrapbooking what tennis shoes are to Grandma's Marathon. Yeah, you could run without shoes, but would you want to?

So I am doing an overnight scrapbook event in July...July promises to be a busy month.

St. Croix in July

This is one of my fave pics of all time...when I was dreaming MN dreams in Arizona,
this is what I thought of.

Freedom to do what they'd like

Here are all the little darlings from Christmas Eve...from left to right: Maggie, Lindsay, Sam, Margaux, Irelynnd, Autumn, Owen and Preston! After taking a few "nice" pics, I always let the kids do what they want. You get some great results!

A little update

The clock is ticking away here at work...I stayed up too late last night, but I really want to get this customer's order right. She ordered 4 pages and they are looking very nice! (If I do say so myself!)

We are gearing up for the family vacation this July...we are planning on going to Mount Rushmore. Not sure exactly when...if there are any takers to watch Henry, please let us know! After the canoe debacle last year, he doesn't get to camp anymore!

Owen and Autumn are fuming today-today is room cleaning day. Bummer.

Trying to balance both worlds

So Owen comes in and wants to scrap-I don't have the heart to say "no". I haven't seen him all day and I want to encourage him in creativity. 20 min later, my scraproom looks like an explosion in a paper factory. Plus, he is really into stamping now, wants his own set of Studio G from Michaels.

Ye Gods....

Anyway, thanks for checking out the new blog-seems like everyone is blogging these days. Well, we have to let off steam somehow!

Please remember to check out my listings on Craig's List for custom made scrapbook pages...I will do 12x12 or 8x8 in any theme you'd like. Contact me for an order form!
