Is It Too Late For December Daily?

It’s December 7th- one week into Christmas, the tree is up, the house decorated- but somehow I feel as if I am terribly behind this whole game! How can this be?  As a little one, I remember it took forever for Christmas to come- and now- I feel as if it’s a blink and two […]

What I’d Like for Christmas-

It’s November 30th. And I’m doing it already.  Slipping into a silent freak out about Christmas.  Sometime about two weeks before Thanksgiving, someone in the family will ask if the boys have a Christmas list ready. Christmas list? For Pete’s sake! – I just got the Halloween decorations packed away!  I live in real time- […]

Today’s Meds: Creative Viagra

Sometimes, I hit a wall scrapping.  I get myself settled down, have the photos printed out, the supplies all lined up- snacks are in perfect arms reach- but safe enough away from my supplies, and Pandora is kicking up some perfect tune-age.  Life should be good.  But I’m not feeling it.  So, I click around […]

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 […]
