True to Yourself

I was reminded the other day that the most important thing is: Be true to yourself! When people question your intentions and don’t get you, just know that if you are honest and true to yourself that is all that matters. Trust me, I know that is easier said then done but I’m trying to… Read more »

A Time to Chill

It’s been a crazy busy week here but with all good things thank goodness! Since it’s the weekend though I’ve decided to take a break and chill. Although when you work for yourself and your business & hobby are the same it’s hard not to design and create. But I’m going to focus on some… Read more »

Just Do It!

As a scrapbook I consider myself a “memory preservist” but sometimes documenting life’s events is hard for me. Depending on the subject matter and the importance of a memory/event I tend to put off dealing with it. I always want to capture it perfectly and that makes it hard to actually finish it. Well I’ve… Read more »

A Look Back at 2009

2009 had lots of low points but it also had some very high points. This collage captures some of them (in no particular order). My dear friend, Mary visited us from Florida. It was 4 years since we last saw her, so it was a great treat to spend time with her. Meeting my cousin,… Read more »


I’m not going to lie, this year was a challenge for me. I have learned a lot about myself and life during the past few months. Hardship and adversity has given me a new found perspective on life and if I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t do it any different.¬†Here’s to… Read more »
