Hello September!

We are set to start school in just a few days- the calendars and schedules have been updated, new school shoes are under each boy’s bed and the backpacks are packed with new supplies are ready to carry my guys into a new school year.  7th grade and Junior year college. *Deep breath.* The one […]

Goodbye Summer | Layout Roundup

There’s something magical about the end of summer.  These last weeks of August have a golden glow- not as bright and happy as those first days of summer. But filtered with a nostalgic feel.  It’s like we are already looking back on summer days, even before they are over.  Maybe it’s because the next chapter […]

Summer Wind-down

We are at the midpoint of August- and September feels like it is a blink away.  I don’t want to say goodbye to these lazy summer day- but at the same time- I love the “-ber” months ahead.  September through December are truly my most favorite times of year. You may have noticed I took […]

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
