If You Ever Crave Chocolate

08/02/2009

I never used to have a sweet tooth. I never really actually understood when other women would say that just needed to have some chocolate. It wasn't that I didn't like it -- it was fine. But I can't say I ever craved it, or needed it. And then I got pregnant with baby number four and all things …

All About WHO!?

08/06/2009

(supplies from ABOUT)I'm sure most of us either have dreaded or do dread doing layouts that are all about us! Let's face it, finding motivation to scrap ourselves can be very difficult! Why though, do we scrap the memories that we do about other people? Usually, it's to help our loved ones rememb…

My Most Used Scrapping Trick

08/08/2009

I have an issue with borders and frames. My eye "needs" a boundary on a photo, on a page. I need a stopping point to keep my eye from wandering. That is why there is some kind of border around almost all my pages (stitching, doodles, paper frame) and why almost all my photos have a white border …

Finding Your Mojo

08/09/2009

The other day my husband was on my Facebook page and someone's status said they had " lost their mojo."   He had something like, "Is that their dog?"  Supressing giggles, I explained that no, mojo was not a dog but rather a word to talk about creativity.  When people say they have "lost their…
