love you more

“I believe in love at first sight because I am a mom”
These past few weeks have been a bit of a roller coaster ride at my place- we’ve been looking at colleges with my older boy Ryan and holding on tight to little boy magic with my younger son, Liam. I guess it only made sense that this bittersweet feeling would spill onto the drawing board in a design inspired by one of my very favorite books, The Giving Tree. It never fails to choke me up. Never. But in a good heart swelling kind of way. I wrote a little about this bittersweet love a mamma feels here on my blog– maybe you’re going through the same thing? I think we need to start a support group.
It’s perfect that I’m feeling all sentimental these past few days- because it’s iNSD! So I can declare it’s an official holiday which all scrappers must recognize- and let my heart spill out onto my layouts!  (you’ll see I already started with a few layouts I made below!)
The love you more collection premiers in the ForeverJoy shoppe at (wooHOO!) 30% off list price today through Sunday evening.
  In fact- the entire shoppe is 30% off to celebrate iNSD!












what joy will you create today?

Crafting the JOY and “meh” of Winter

I have a love-hate relationship with winter. Come November 1 after all the pumpkin spice palooza- I can’t wait to cozy things up with knits and layers and all things comfy-cozy, and then comes the magic of the holidays, the thrill of the first snow and the delight of slow cooked dinners and nights by […]

The Joy of Challenges

After the holidays where we give so much of ourselves to others, January gives us a welcome chance to look inward and see how we can refill our own buckets.  It’s also the time of year at the Lilypad when we host a “Month of Challenges”  where each day a different memory keeping challenge is […]

Jump start your layouts | looking backwards

It’s been said that photographs are a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. I love that thought. Because, if we can return to a time- then it’s never really lost is it? Not to us, or to anyone who can see and read and feel what that image means to us. We can tell […]

Simplifying December with Traveler’s Notebooks

Especially this time of year, when there are so many stories to be captured- I wanted to make it a point to scrap more often- to tell more stories- but in a simpler way. I love Project Life- and I am a big fan of mini books. It’s only natural then that my attention has […]
