I don’t know about you, but I have a lot of stamps. Lately, I’ve been challenging myself to use multiple stamps from different kits on my projects. That led to scene building! Sometimes I’m intimidated by the size of an art journal page or scrapbook layout. That can be a lot of white space to… Continue reading Make a Scene!
It’s fall ya’ll! Well, almost…technically, the first day of fall is September 22 according to the Farmer’s Almanac, but it’s close enough for me! I’m ready for crisp fall days when I can turn off the A/C, open all the doors and windows, light a fire pit on the patio with no mosquitoes and have… Continue reading Today’s Special…WATERCOLOR!
My Grandma made the BEST apple pie (I bet we can all say that!). Butter, sugar, flour, cinnamon, Granny Smith apples, a pinch of salt…She always made her own crust with Crisco! God that was good stuff! This was my attempt at making it a few years ago. I even used her pie plate. AND… Continue reading Mmmmmm…apple pie…
This fourth grader is a MESS! He’s a “balla” (baseBALL, footBALL)! His confidence overflows! He practiced his typing skills on the computer at my sister’s office, since school was cancelled due to Hurricane Harvey. And, he’s got style…Check out his new “do”! Click play, the video isn’t sideways! This little Texan got his teeth cleaned… Continue reading Fish out of Water

This month’s Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge Blog Hop was inspired by the July NBUS Challenge on the Club Scrap chat forum. The challenge is to make pages, cards, or other projects featuring a “frame” (or frames) designed using rubber stamps or stencils. I took a few creative liberties with this challenge…and made them frames… Continue reading Frame of Mine
Welcome to my stop on the Club Scrap Vintage Botany blog hop! Isn’t this kit gorgeous?! Before Club Scrap® posted project ideas and instructions on their blog, they published a monthly Scrap Rap publication that was included in each kit. I have quite a collection of them! The instructions are always so easy to follow… Continue reading Utilize and Miniaturize!
You never forget your first love. This was my fourth birthday. I loved that bike. I even remember the day I rode it without training wheels. My dad was running down the street holding the back of my bike and suddenly I was riding it all by myself! My dad re-gifted this bike to me… Continue reading To Infinity and Beyond!
About a month ago, I wrote this post Yes, I Ride Like a Girl! about the “Adventures of Wendy and Sheri”. It’s been 8 weeks and we’re still riding and hiking! We’ve been documenting our rides and our “Monday Fun Days” with photos and videos so that I could put them in albums for each of us. We’re… Continue reading Where The Wild Things Are!

A year goes by fast, it feels like we were just waiting for baby Gus… Continue reading Don’t Fuss Call Gus!
