That’s usually what you think of when you think of Valentine’s Day, right?
Well, I’m turning all that on it’s head with today’s Make It Monday post.
You may be arriving from Connie’s blog where planner stickers, hot air balloons and dreams all came together. Or you may have stumbled upon my post in another way, it’s all good. Glad you’re here! Every Monday I (try to) get together with a few of my creative friends to bring you a round up of what we’ve been creating. It is my intention to bring you a post every Monday whether I have compatriots or not. Come back each Monday to see what new creation is coming out of my Scrap Cave! Continue reading »
Why, oh why, is such a chore to get your kids to DO their chores?
The nagging, the constant reminders, the yelling … by the time they actually emerge from the abyss (a.k.a. their bedroom) to state that it’s clean, you’re ready for a double crantini, hold the cranberry juice. Am I right?
As a mother I am always looking for new ways to make it easier on all of us. As a crafter I have the tools and the supplies to make it fun. (Let’s face it, I’ve got the supplies to help the entire planet at this point!)
I know, I’ve been remiss on the Make It Monday front for several months now. Funny how when life gets busy, this blog is the first thing to fall by the way side. If I were a resolution making kind of person, I’d say that 2016 was going to be different with regards to this website … as I’m not, you can read into that what you will!
Today my crafty share with you is something to help you ring in the New Year.
The calendar says we’ve left summer behind but around these parts the sun is shining, the afternoons are warm, and I want to soak up every last ounce of that precious Vitamin D before it disappears for months.
(I may be in denial that socks are now required, flip flops are a wee bit too open to wear 24/7, and the heat may need to get turned on soon.)
But now that it’s officially October and Fall, I guess it’s perfectly acceptable to post about all things Thanksgiving and Halloween. Right? That’s the rule, isn’t it? No white after Labour Day and no Halloween talk until October 1st? Guess I’ve already broken that rule as I shared something last week that you could make and give away this Halloween to kids in your child’s class or at a party.
Today I have another take on the Halloween Snack Bag but this time it’s for you! Continue reading »
Welcome back! Today I have another video for you and a surprise sale to tell you about at the end of the post.
On Monday I took you on a tour of my album from our trip to Disneyland in 2012. You saw the processes I’d put in place, and the products I’d set aside at the beginning to help in the creation of a cohesive album. A more complete story of our trip rather than an album full of photos and captions, if you will.
There were a LOT of missing stories! There were missing dates on many layouts. And then there was the Ultimate Scrapbooker Oops, two layouts about the same story. Same photos. Different colour schemes.
