Your Biggest Fan


I have had a lot of requests for sports themed designs- and I mean a lot!  Heck, considering I spend almost every weekend on some field, or in a park – I wanted to design one for myself too! But the catch was- which sport? In this house we have played so many things at so many times- I could fill my hard drive with designs!

But then I got to thinking about how I really like telling the stories of the sporty shots I have- and while sometimes I give a basic recap of the day’s events- most times the story is told from my perspective on the sidelines. How I feel- what I am witnessing- the behind the scenes drama of tears and practice and frustration and joy that really only I have a press pass to. I know how much it took to get my player to that moment in time- and I know what that look or victory or defeat means. Flipping the perspective to the sidelines seemed a great direction for a design- because while sports may change- my loyalty as their biggest fan- no matter what they are tackling, never does. I’ll always be on the sidelines- cheering way out loud for all to hear- or giving a supportive look that only they can see.  These are the stories I hope you can tell with “Your Biggest Fan.”

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
