Easy DIY Picture Frame

I am constantly putting up new pictures in our home, and I love 'themed' picture frames - seasons, holidays, you name it and I want it.  The problem is that they can be really expensive, and where do you store all of the Santa/Christmas/Easter/Valentine's Day/Halloween/etc frames for 50 or so weeks a year you don't have them on display?  Not to mention that I never know if the picture that I'm going to want to display will be landscape or portrait! I decided to get a teeny bit crafty and use Read more [...]

We welcomed Rowan (aka Sprout) in March and it was love in first sight for all of us!   We had a quiet spring while we got used Read more [...]

Happy New Year from a bad blogger

How is it already a week into 2012?  Like many of you, the chaos of the holidays is finally subsiding and I'm hoping that we can get back into our regular routine this week, and that includes more blogging by yours truly!  The girls are keeping me on my toes - Rowan learned how to pull up to a stand on New Year's Day and she's trying her hardest to walk but lacks the balance to do it, so there are lots of bumps and near-misses around here.  She's almost 10 months old and I'm starting to think Read more [...]

My Memories (scrapbooking software giveaway)

  I love traditional scrapbooking but I don't have nearly enough time for it these days.  With a little girl who wants to 'help' and is very interested in crafts I can't leave my products and pages out or who knows what I'll find!  I'd heard about digital scrapbooking software  before but hadn't made the leap until I was introduced to My Memories Suite. I've been playing around with My Memories Suite for a few weeks now and I can't believe it's taken me this long to try scrapbooking on Read more [...]
