LOAD #3

I went classic style for today’s Layout a Day!  The challenge was to focus on photography and create a layout with a photo that tells the story…no journaling!  As I’m in a bit of a journaling mood, this was actually a real challenge.  Yet, once I remembered this photo…I’ve been wanting to scrapbook it since […]

LOAD #2

Another digi layout for the LOAD 2010 Challenge.  The prompt asked me to spend some time thinking about what made my life situation unique.  I instantly thought about the fact that Neal and I don’t have kids and that our attention is solely focused on each other.  We have a unique bond as a result. […]

LOAD #1

Lain Ehman’s Layout a Day challenge started today!  I was at school late and didn’t have much time, so I used a digital quick page to create this layout.  Lain’s challenge to us this time is to focus on storytelling, so I’m less worried about the products I use and more centered on crafting a […]

You Make Me Happy

I discovered a Sketchabilities contest last night and fell for sketch #20!  Even though I have a ton of school work to do, I decided that, after the stress of the past couple of weeks, I needed to relax and scrapbook.  So, I’ve been working on this layout on and off throughout the day.  I know […]

Creativity Challenge Update

Wow! It’s a little embarrassing that I haven’t updated my Weekly Creativity Challenge for 3 months! It’s not that I haven’t been creative; it simply is that my blog took a backseat to school, my online classes, my CTMH club, and my sick kitties. I’m on winter break now, so I’m going to get back […]

Learn Something New Day 10

I really wanted to get caught up on my digi LOs today, but this was all I was able to finish. I need to spend the rest of the evening exercising and grading papers…fun times! I rotated the designerdigitals.com template I used yesterday since this LO will be on the facing page. I also included […]

Learn Something New Days 7-9

I saw a news segment on the 7th about a woman who reinvented herself by publishing her first novel at 45. I need to reconnect with myself as a writer. Neal and I have spent the past week brainstorming story ideas, and I’m getting really excited about writing again! Learn Something New Every Day is […]

Creativity Challenge Update

I haven’t been online much over the past couple of weeks due to the start of the new school year and Neal’s challenging me to stay off my computer! I must admit that I felt a little lost on the days that I didn’t turn on my computer. I’m hopelessly addicted; sad but true! What […]

Learn Something New Days 3-6

Shimelle’s prompt was about what we can learn from our feet. It amazes me how right on target her prompts always seem to be with my life. For instance, Neal and I were watching football and one of the players was carted off with a foot sprain. I was thinking to myself how horrible it […]

Learn Something New Every Day

Shimelle’s Learn Something New Every Day class started again on September 1st. I first signed up for this class in September of 2006. That was an incredibly eventful month in my life, and I’m so thankful I was taking her course, because I journaled every day. I didn’t, however, finish my daily pages. In fact, […]
