Summertime Blues

now in the shop

July! It’s July!! I feel like THIS weekend is the official start of summer! School, graduation and the the accompanying drama is behind me, the pool and beach have become to warm up and the days have begun to slow down.  Good stuff!

It’s also Fourth of July weekend, where we here in the States celebrate so many things that we hold dear- and you are bound to catch me tearing up as they play Patriotic songs during the fire works show.  And to all my Military friends and family out there- here is a big huge thank you for all you do and sacrifice to help keep this the beautiful land that I love!

So, wondering what fun I have planned in the shoppe this weekend?  There is a terrific BYOC going on at the Pad- and I have a new design called SUMMERTIME BLUES- which is ironically,  a very upbeat design! But the blue batik patterns deserved a call out of there own- so there it is!

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 […]
