Scrappy Weekend!

I haven't been doing too many scrapbook pages lately (mostly making notebooks!) but after seeing all the CHA inspiration I've been hard at work!

Have a wonderful rest of your Sunday,

Feed the Birds

For Christmas this year my man bought me some bird feeding supplies! It has been a gift that keeps giving...everyday I sit and have my coffee and watch all the little birdies come and have some snacks! It is truly a blessing to watch!

Have a great weekend,

2011 Word Momento

My word for 2011 is "focus" and I need a lot of reminders to help me focus :)
I decided to alter a Maya Road Trinkets Shadow Box with lots of reminders.

To see the entire shadow box and a little tutorial on how to make the yellow flower in the upper left hand corner click here :)

Have a great Monday,

JetPen Test Ride

I was asked by Jet Pens to try out some of their pens! I've been a pen lover for as long as I can remember and I LOVE to try out new ones!

The first wasn't a pen but a mechanical pencil, a Zebra Color Flight C to be exact.

The first thing I loved about this one was the colour...

I always do my hand written journaling in pencil first so this was a perfect one to start with. This pencil has a nice weight, super grip, and best of all...a twist eraser!!! My number one complaint about mechanical pencils are the tiny erasers but this one goes on and'll love it!

The next was a gel ink pen made by Pilot. The Pilot Hi-Tec 0.5 was truly amazing. The ink comes out so smoothly and the nib is very precise.

I put this one to the test by first writing on top of Maya Mist and it didn't skip a beat. I then tried it on top of paint...I was amazed, usually when I write on paint the pen ends up skipping, not this pilot!

(you can see the full tag here!)

Just to make sure that it truly wasn't going to skip I wrote my grocery list with it...

Stay tuned for more reviews...have a great day,

Made by God

I'm so excited to be the Sunday School craft teacher for the preschoolers in our church! They are all just too adorable and fun to be with!

Our first week we read a story about Adam and Eve and our craft was a tag that the children could pin on themselves...

Have a blessed week,

Welcome 2011!

I long for this...a new year, a fresh start.

This year my word is "focus".

I need to focus.
In 2010 I wasn't focused and I hardly did what I love to do.
I love to scrapbook.

It is my goal to finish a 52 Pick Me Up this year.

I printed out a "Log Your Memory" calendar and I can't wait
to get started on that...this will help me focus.

I'm looking forward to an amazing new year!

May God richly bless you,
