Mini Quote Album

August 24, 2016

Mini albums are one of my favorites to create, especially when they showcase family heirlooms and quotes that speak to my heart.
This sweet album combined canvas blanks that I used paint and stencils to add dimension to the blank canvas.
Then I folded the canvas blanks in half and binded them to form a small album.

Next came the fun part, as I added quotes vintage lace and embellishments.

Each of these pages are filled with vintage charm.

And family heirlooms...

Like this butterfly broach, which belong to my beloved Grandma.

I then added some beautiful images, additional quotes and vintage embellishments.

Mini albums are easy and fun to make.  These can be completed in only a few hours by gathering your images, quotes, papers and vintage embellishments.  Why not treat yourself to some creative time to complete one today!

I enjoy adding a little homemade farmhouse charm to our home.
Pillows are so easy to make to add a little charm to your home.  Canvas Corp Brands make it so easy with their pillow squares and their printed canvas sheets.

You still have time to sign up for The Good Life Mini Album class that I will be teaching at Vintage in KC.  If you haven't seen Rene's beautiful store, you have got to come see it!  Her beautiful vintage, shabby chic style is so inviting.  
Keeping in that style, I designed The Good Life Mini Album.

Even places to tuck in additional photos...

fabric and most importantly...

Family Favorite Recipes

August 17, 2016

Do you have family favorite recipes?  You know the kind of dishes that bring back wonderful memories of home cooked meals, family and friends sitting around the table laughing and sharing their days?
Why not create an album to showcase those recipes and memories?
One of our favorite family recipes is my Mom's Pineapple Dish that goes well with ham.  It is one of our favorite dishes at Easter.

Together is my favorite place to be...
This past weekend was exciting, fun and most of all hard on this mom.   Dropping our youngest at college was filled with so many emotions. So proud of both our kiddos as they pursue their dreams.  No matter where we are, together is the best place to be!

You will Set the World on Fire

August 12, 2016

This week has been all about getting these two ready for college this year.
There have been moments of sheer happiness for this mom and other times you will find me in tears.  It is hard to see your kiddo's growing up and leaving the nest.  So many worries this mom has as they embark on adventures without us.  But I know that God has great plans for our kiddos and they will set the world on fire!

Love you Boo & Buddy!

The Joy of Creating

August 10, 2016

There is something so rewarding to just create for the joy of it...
Just losing yourself in the process.

It is a time that I enjoy the most...

Do you love to create just for the pure enjoyment of just playing?   I hope you schedule some time to do just that this week!
