I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a traditional dinner on Thursday with all the kids and one of the grandkids. The other two were at their other parents’ house and we missed them.
Are you a Black Friday shopper? I’m not so much. I don’t like the crowds and the parking and all that jazz, but I have been trying to scoop up deals online as I find them. I don’t have any particularly spectacular ones to share, except in the digi-scrapping community! Yes, there are Black Friday sales there, and they are not to be missed. Along with some upcoming Cyber Monday sales! Here are just a few of the things you can pick up this weekend:
At The Lilypad:
At The Digital Press:
And at Sweet Shoppe:
And with all this scrapping, I’m behind on getting my DYD pages prepared and my PL, but I hope to be back on those tomorrow while I work on another little project that’s due in December 🙂 I hope that you enjoy the rest of your weekend and find some time to relax in the madness! Until next time, peace, out…
Ha I honestly did not think it had been almost a month since I last posted! Not quite sure what happened but it sure feels like I have been super busy every single day. Just dropping by today to share some fantastic new releases for this week!
I’m hoping to do some more updating soon, maybe this weekend! I am so excited to start planning my December Daily. It really helps keep me and my mind occupied during the cold dark days of winter. Thanks for looking! Peace, out…
I got my PL all caught up for this year, even including this week!! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me! Last week, I was 10 weeks behind. I have never been that far behind! Ok, so there is one missing week. I don’t know what it is about September, but I am sorely lacking photos in September every single year! I think it has to do with getting back in the swing of work and school. I will go back and finish that page when I figure out what I’m going to do about the lack of photos…maybe a lot of journaling! But for now, I fee complete and ready to move on from here!
You can check out all my pages HERE, but I’ll share the ones I’ve done for October
Now on to all the other things on my to-do list!! Hope you all have a great upcoming week! Thanks for looking, and until next time, peace out…
Happy Friday!! Friday evenings are a favorite of mine. It is the one day of the week that we just do a lot of nothing. No homework, no chores, no cooking…just relaxing, maybe scrapping or movie watching. This Friday was a bit different because we had the day off due to some pretty significant flooding in the county where I teach. I feel so bad for all those who were affected by it. There were several campgrounds close to the river that were completely under water. I spent the day cleaning the house so that I can enjoy the rest of the weekend. I seriously need to spend as much time as possible catching up on Project Life! I am so many weeks behind and there’s so much more amazing, fun stuff coming up!
I thought I would jump on tonight and share the new releases for this week, and then hopefully be back to share some PL pages as I finish them!
Mondays are not really so simple for me right now. My son, a friend, and I are taking a beginner sign language course and the tech center here in town. We are on week three and I’m really enjoying it. Signing is something I have always wanted to be really good at, but have never taken the time to really learn it. I know a few signs here and there that I have picked up over the years working in Special Education, but I would love to be fluent. I know that this course alone won’t do it for me, but it’s a start!
I wanted to swing by here today and share my Simple Scrapper layouts for October. I love being a part of the team at Simple Scrapper. I really feel like it helps me to create some meaningful, purposeful layouts and inspires me to create pages that I may not have thought of otherwise. The Premium Membership offers exclusive content and a supportive, generous, and inspiring community.

These were super fun layouts to do and probably things I would not have thought to document if it weren’t for the Story Starters from Simple Scrapper! Check it out for yourself!! Hoping you have a simply wonderful week!! Peace, out…
Happy DSD weekend!! For those who don’t know, DSD is Digital Scrapbooking Day. There are challenges, games, and sales galore!! I honestly get a little overwhelmed sometimes and decided a few years ago that I would just sit back and do what I could, when I could. There is just so much! But what I have done this week and into the weekend is scrap!
It’s also BYOC weekend at The Lilypad! Talk about gorgeous!! Here are just a few of the kits you can find on sale:
I’m also hosting a DSD Scraplift Challenge at The Lilypad if you are into having some fun and possibly winning a little prize.
There are more fun and games over at The Digital Press and some amazing new releases and fantastic for DSD!!
I’m hosting one of the monthly challenges over there – All About Me!
And even more amazing new releases over at Sweet Shoppe Designs!
Did I mention the word overload? Insane, isn’t it!! I hope you are joining in the fun and getting some memory keeping done! I’m heading back to the forums to see what I can get in to, so until next time…peace, out…
There is something so wonderful about Fridays! C and I started the day with Starbucks because M had told me that the Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte was so much better than the hot, so I had to try it. Ummm no. Just no. I bought a Venti and didn’t even drink half of it. I’ll stick to the hot, thank you very much. Then we jammed out to Flush the Format on the Kidd Kraddick morning show on the radio. I’ll convert Chance to an 80’s music lover yet haha. Work/school went pretty well, and there’s just something about looking forward to the weekend that makes it better. That and being able to wear jeans!
On the way home, we decided to take advantage of the McDonald’s mobile order and pay to get a couple of large drinks and a free medium fry. We’re loving the deals on the app. I don’t cook on Friday. We either do leftovers, pick up something, or throw a pizza in the oven. It’s the one day of the week that we don’t worry about chores or homework or really anything for that matter. We just chill and sometimes get in a little nap!
The other great thing about Fridays is all the awesome new releases around digi-land, so I thought I’d swing by and share a few!!
At The Lilypad, Just Jaimee has this fantastic new add-on to the September Storyeller. It’s called Then and Now and it’s so beautiful!! I paired it up with the Template add-on for September
Over at The Digital Press, Rachel Etrog has an absolutely gorgeous new kit called Storyteller, and I paired it up with some amazing new templates by Akizo Designs called Autumn Leaves 03.
And at Sweet Shoppe Designs, River~Rose has a gorgeous kit called Magical Forest. I paired it up with some fun new templates called Fall Market by Crystal Livesay.
It’s supposed to rain this weekend, so I plan to spend it trying to catch up on my Project Life. I have several weeks that I need to get done and I’m determined!! I hope you all have a great weekend!! Peace, out…
In my neglecting of this blog, I have also neglected to share the pages I’ve done for Simple Scrapper the last couple of months.

Yep, it’s seriously been two months since I posted. You know what they say about the good intentions. The summer got busy, vacation came and went, and we spent some time just in the moment. I’ve been stopping by to update my Scrap Pages and I *think* every page I’ve done is there. It’s just been a matter of not getting here to type up a post. I am going to make a conscious effort to try and post at least a couple of times a week from here on out. School has been back in session for a couple of weeks and we are finally settling in to a bit of an evening routine, so I should be able to keep up!
Today, I wanted to swing by and share some new releases for this week.
If you haven’t seen it, you have to check out the new collaboration from Allison Pennington, Etc. by Danyale, Fiddle-Dee-Dee, and Little Butterfly Wings. It’s called Life UnCensored – Daily Bull****. If there was ever a kit that I could use over and over and over, this one is it!
Just Jaimee also has a beautiful new release this week called Foxy Fall! I am not a big fan of fall, but the colors in this kit are just amazing!
Weekend Collection by Akizo Designs was the perfect kit for scrapping a trip to the park we took over the summer!
I am also really behind on sharing pages I’ve done for Simple Scrapper the last couple of months, so I will be back to share those tomorrow, I hope!! Thanks for stopping by! Peace, out…
