Make a Mini Goal Toward Better Health!

A motivational message directly from Cathy Zielske's upcoming workshop, Move More, Eat Well Jumpstart. Chances are you’ve got some pretty big goals for getting into shape and staying there.

Super Simple Halloween Challenge

Super Simple Halloween Challenge

Hello, and Happy Monday! Today I get to share one of the super SIMPLE scrapbook challenges with you, that I have issued to my adorable sister, Darci in our upcoming workshop, Super Simple Scrapbook Challenges, where we masquerade as heroic caped crusaders fighting for simplicity in memory keeping. One of the pages I completed for this challenge is actually a Halloween page, so I thought it might be a good one to share as we finish our countdown to major candy and dozens of new photographs this weekend! One of the things that sometimes stumps me in my quest for scrapbook productivity is my HUGE stash of patterned paper. I LOVE patterned paper.

Just like fashion, there are no rules to scrapbooking! Sure, there are design principles and ever-changing trends, but the scrapbook police are not about to hunt you down.

Gettin’ Inspired

I am a huge fan of mini-books. I’ve made literally hundreds! So imagine my delight when Amy Tan’s project is a mini-book based on things that inspire! From favorite products and food to music and what we read it’s the perfect little “me right now” album. And “little” is right, because it holds the cutest ever 2x2 photos!

Peek Inside the Artists' Studios!

Peek Inside the Artists' Studios!

Don't you love seeing sneak peeks of art projects before they're finished? It kind of feels like walking through a newly framed house, seeing a celebrity without makeup on, watching What Not to Wear, looking at a baby and imagining what she'll look like when she grows up. You just see so much raw possibility. There's a fun final reveal awaiting you sometime soon, but for the moment, you can imagine all sorts of outcomes.
