We are Young

Let's end the weekend right and kick off the week in style, shall we?  We shall!  Is there any better way than to do so with a new kit and coordinating freebie? No, ma'am - so let's get to it.  May I introduce to you my new kit, "We are Young," now available over in the shop.  There will be a few coordinating  add-ons popping up in the shop over of the next few days as well.

But wait...there's more!  If art journaling isn't really your thing or you're looking for the right kit to document you day - head to the store and you'll find just the right thing.  And if you don't then shoot me an E-mail with a suggestion or two. :-)

As promised, a little "We are Young" freebie for you!

New Release: Play!

Okay, when did it become September and how is tomorrow Friday??  This can only mean one thing...

I'm so excited, I just can't hide it!  I'm getting my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season on Saturday when the weather dips to the mid 70s and it's ridiculous how happy I am about it.  How will you be marking the changing of the seasons?  Whatever you do be sure to remember it with one of my seasonal kits, including my new collections "Play!" and "We are Young."

Here's a little freebie to thank you for stopping by!

Keep your eyes open for tomorrow's newsletter to snag this freebie as well.  Not signed up for the newsletter?  You can do so by clicking the link below.

Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day/evening!

It's a busy, busy Saturday here!  Why you ask?  Is it because it's a holiday weekend? NOPE! Is it because it's a Saturday and you have a lot to catch up on? NOPE! (Well, sort of!)  Is it because you want to take advantage of the sunshine and the pool in your backyard? NOPE!  Then what is it?    IT'S COLLEGE FOOTBALL TIME, baby!!!

No, not that football - you know the other one, the Amurican kind.  High school football on Friday, college football on Saturday and Church on Sunday - it's the Oklahoma way! 
 Unless you're me then it's football every day, every way.

What I'm trying to say is that I'm excited and will do my best to keep a lid on it...though we all know how well that usually works out.

As all of you parents know September is the kick-off to practices, car pools, late dinners and endless Saturdays spent on the pitch/field/sidelines/rink. etc.  In light of that I've created a new collection for documenting all of the hard work, big plays and moments to remember entitled "Play!"

Pick up the first patterns packs from "Play!" and my second new collection "We are Young" at 40% with the coupon code PLAY40.

Did I mention there are freebies? ;-)  Two in fact!  Snag them below.

Have a lovely, safe and excellent weekend! If you need me I'll be on a raft in the middle of my pool watching da foozball on my tablet ;-)  (Thankfully I can do both AND work at the same time!)

What will your verse be?

I've had "update blog layout" on my to-do list for well over a year and despite my qualms with Blogger's HTML/XML/CSS set-up I've finally buckled down and started.  Yep, you know you're a nerd when you complain about HTML, etc.  Maybe it's just me but I've been working with code since I was 13 and I can't for the life of me get a handle on Blogger's interface or rather get around Blogger's interface.  But I'm finally putting my frustration aside and playing along by their rules so I can give this blog to design update it deserves.  Here's a quick peek at what I've been working on.

One of the things I absolutely adore about scrapbooking (and design for the matter) is that it allows you to find your voice and create something uniquely you, something that speaks to who you are, the experiences you've had, the memories you've created and the story of your life.  It's your story and only you can tell it.  I wanted to create something that communicates just that and I'm hoping I managed to accomplish this  - or at least am in the process of doing so.

"Dead Poet's Society" is one of my absolute favorite movies and an old stand by.  As the daughter of a writer and a complete dork for the written word DPS left of a mark on me from a very, very young age - before I could even truly understand how and why.  It's one of those films that sticks with you because it both speaks to you and puts words to sentiments, emotions and truths that are often difficult to verbalize or put to paper.   A few months ago Apple started launched a new campaign that featured the Professor Keating's monologue from arguable that best scene in the film.  Due to the fact that I am a complete and total sap, I found myself getting emotional whenever it would randomly come on.    To put a visual upon it please reference this GIF of Oprah.

Robin Williams was a constant source of inspiration for reasons reaching far beyond laughter and this this is my only little way of paying tribute to him and the power of our own finding our own verse.

I know, I know....where's the freebie?  Worry not, there's light at the end of the tunnel.  I noticed that a few of you enjoyed the colors I've chosen to use in my re-vamp so I decided to whip up a couple of papers for you all to play around with.  

Grab your freebie then head on over to the store and pick up a kit or two.

Thanks for dropping by!

Hello Fall...again!

Yesterday was a very special Sunday Funday for my family and friends as we celebrated the Christening of my niece, Miss Quinn Caroline Jones.  Or as her Aunt Harper likes to say - Quinn accepted God's nomination and took the ultimate ice bucket challenge.  ;-)  It was a beautiful ceremony and afterwards we had everyone back to the house for a little celebration.   Here are a few photos from the ceremony of Quinn in her special couture Christening gown that her Dad bought in Ireland.  Only the very best for Miss Q on her big day.

It was a lovely gathering and a great reminder of what's important in life.  Thanks to all of y'all for your support, friendship and allowing me to be apart of helping to document all of your special moments in life.  It is an absolute honor and I could never express how thankful I am for you all. <3

Speaking of scrapbooking - did you know you can save 50% in the shop through Monday with the coupon code HELLOFALL50?  If not then you do now!  Pick up one of my latest kits today.

I have a few new freebies for you all so make sure you grab them before you go.

I'll be returning E-mails, sending orders and re-working my blog design so if you need me just shoot me an E-mail and I'll get back to you ASAP.  Thanks for stopping by!
