The Teen Parent Zone

Imagine, if you will, a world where your mailbox is constantly flooded with college brochures, each threatening to take that sweet little child you once held away on a 4 year journey- only  to return them as an adult.  A world where you remember only yesterday securing your little creature in a car seat- and now you find yourself strapping on for dear life as they take the wheel. It is a dimension where your pockets will be empty and your worries elevated to pinnacles you doubt your sanity can barely stretch to accommodate. You once knew everything- and now know nothing. No longer cool or wise, you are barely tolerated and each eye roll reminds you of that cruel fact.
The signpost up ahead laughs at your plight and tells you- that once that 13th candle was blown out- you have now crossed over into the TEEN PARENT ZONE!
Want to know the secret to survival? You gotta laugh! This collection was designed as a sort of scrap therapy for parents of teens! What better way to get relief from teen angst than scrapping the drama in a lighthearted way?  And as a bonus- all those teen photo that have looks of disgust, eye rolls, mouths open in protest or blur from running from the camera- will work perfectly with the theme! How’s that for revenge!?  As an added bonus- and sign of solidarity- the Journal Cards FREE with your purchase of the design this weekend!
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
