I’m having trouble getting my blog to look the way I’d like. The formatting is goofy and driving me crazy. I want the pictures to just sort of sit in amongst the text not totally mes with it! One of these days I get it all figured out. For now I’ll just say sorry it looks odd. 🙂

I’ve been working on lots of projects…scrapbooking-altered style, my anniversary squares for ABC_altered book club, a framed memory box and lastly my COFFEE themed altered book. I’m not thrilled with my pages so far but I’m diving in anyway.




I’ve finished and mailed off my 15 4×4’s for a chunky book swap on BookArtz. The theme just jumped out and grabbed me right away. I can’t wait to see what the other participants create!


I got the sweetest Mother’s Day gift from my son today. Each 1st grader was given a blank book to create and illustrate a story about what mom means to them. It was so sweet it made me cry.

It was really funny reading what he sees as my job and what means the most to him. Apparently my ability to make pancakes is really high on his list.

What a treasure!

Lisa Vollrath once again is generously offering images from her site for Mothers Day. She has great stuff and well worth your time to check out her sites.

I had just finished my 4×4 pages (16 of them) for a swap when I noticed a typo. I am thankful I noticed before sending them off but all that work…now ripping them back apart to fix my mistake! Where was my spell check when I needed it???

I thought this was kind of interesting.
