Good Friends…

Good friends are the people who show up at 8:00am on Sunday to put together a playset for your child who is barely old enough to use it. They complain minimally about the 97 degree heat, blazing sun & swarming mosquitos. Thanks to everyone who came out yesterday to put the swing set & fort […]

Father’s Day Album…

This is a Father’s Day album that I made for Jonathan’s 1st Father’s Day. I plan to add to it every year. Imagine my delight when it made the cover of MemoryTrends Magazine this month. I’ve never been published on the inside of a magazine before, let alone the cover! A couple of people asked […]

Cards for the Troops…

I sent a box of cards to Debi for her Cards for the Troops project. If you have some extra cards laying around, or if you feel inspired to make some, drop her an email and she’ll tell you where to send them. It’s such an easy little thing to do that will mean a […]

Persistence…

One of the newest retailers to add Yellowfence scrapbooking shirts to their store is Scrapbooking Moments in Time. This store is re-opening after being completely devastated by flood.

IKEA Hack: Cool Photo Backdrop

So while at the grocery store (don’t ask) I had a great idea for how I could put a permanent system in place to hang photo backdrops from. So I began with the DEKA curtain wire kit from IKEA. I mounted the end units to the top of our entertainment center and strung the wire […]

Depth of Field…

This post is for a photography challenge from the gals over on my Baby Center Board. The challenge was to set your camera to aperture priority and manipulate the f-stop to achieve a blurry background. It sounded SO complicated, but once I figured out how to change the settings it was easy to manipulate the […]
