Capturing the Moments

It is so easy now to capture the moments of everyday life...
Those special moments caught at the movies, in the car and around town.  So this summer, capture those special memories and get them documented.  

Christmas In July

July 20, 2016

The season of giving is ahead and with it comes family traditions, times with family and friends and memories that you want to hold onto.  There are many ways to capture those holiday memories, but one of my favorites is with mini albums. 

These albums may be small but the can be filled with many photos and filled with so many memories.
There are so many wonderful paper lines to help you document your favorite holiday memories.

This fun kitschy vintage album is filled with bright, fun papers and embellishments.  
To add that extra pop, glitter glue is added.

Here is another twist on a vintage mini album using some heritage inspired papers that a have an updated look and color scheme.

So whatever style that you enjoy creating with, make sure to start documenting those precious memories.
Or create some mini albums now to get a head start on this years holiday memories!

July 15, 2016

Hello sweet friends and welcome to my creative space.  I have participated every year that Karen has been hosting Where Bloggers Create.  It is a way for my to clean, organize and update my space.  
Not much has changed other than the supplies and vintage goodies that get bought, collected and then used.  

Years ago my husband and I  finished out our basement and added my studio space.  It is a place that I long to create in.  

This is one of the many treasures I have in my space, Ms. Clara M.   She proudly displays Silver Bella apron and jewelry.  
I love having this organizer right above my creative space.  It always me easy access to some of my go to supplies. 
My space also includes beautiful family photos, ephemera and vintage treasures just waiting to be used.

My great grandma's jewelry box holds more treasures.
I love the mix of family treasures and vintage finds that complete my creative space. 

I hope you enjoyed a little peek into my studio.  Thank you Karen, for hosting another wonderful Where Bloggers Create party and thank you for popping on by my studio. 

Can't wait to  visit all the other party goers creative spaces!

Memory Quilt

July 8, 2016

As Connor heads off to college, he will be wrapped up in the memory quilt lovingly made stitch by stitch by my mom.  
  There are so many wonderful memories of the past years... many filled with football playoffs and championships, basketball teams that traveled all over Missouri, Kansas and Arkansas, our Alaska cruise and extreme driving in Colorado.  
My hope is when he is away at college, he curls up under this blanket and remembers fondly all these memories and especially how much he is loved by his Grammy.
