Page Kits Coming to the Little Blue House!

Remember a couple weeks ago when my family was snowed in?
Stuck in the house for 5 days...starting to believe that we would never dig ourselves out? ;)
I'm happy to report that I did something productive with that time and put together some page kits that will be sold at the Little Blue House!
Spoke with Tracy today, who told me that they should be ready to sell on Thursday.
Two different two-page layouts, using some "oldie but goodie" paper lines that, in my opinion, never get old. :) You will receive in your kit everything you need to complete these layouts.
Love having the opportunity to stay tied, at least in a small way,
to one of my very favorite places.

Two-page layout created using the "Artic Blast" paper line by Fancy Pants. Enough pink or blue to be great for whatever snowy, wintry day photos you want to use.

And page two:


"Crazy (in) Love"


This line (by October Afternoon) has been one of my favorites for awhile. A perfect fit for our new family photos that were taken last month.

You gotta go check them out.
Details on pricing and quantities available at the Little Blue House.
Happy scrapping, everyone! :)

Because you asked...

Or at least someone did. Thanks Erin!
Here is a pic of our mantel. I've had a love/hate relationship with this thing.
Love that we have a fireplace again (didn't in our old house), and love that I have a mantel to decorate. But I've been fighting with this thing to get it "just right."
Not exactly sure what "just right" is.
But I think this is as close to good as it's going to get. :)

We're snowed here in the Atlanta metro area, so for the first time in awhile I've actually had a little extra time on my hands. Kinda shocked myself. ;) I have been wanting something that said "family" for our mantle, and finally got around to making it.

Super easy...just need a 2x4 piece of wood (and if you're not handy with a circular saw, you'll need your sweet husband's help) ;), your cricut (or chipboard letters to trace onto paper), some paint and mod podge, and you're good-to-go. :) I made another set for a friend, but since she hasn't gotten them yet, I will post about it later. There's a very cool story that goes with her word, and I can't wait to tell it! :)

I also just (finally) packed up a couple of mini book gifts for my aunt and my cousin and his wife, who are expecting a baby boy any day now. Can't wait to see that little guy's face!

And the photos below are of a tree I was asked to put together for our women's ministry at church. This one was supposed to be a winter theme, and then I'll change it up each time the season's change througout the year. Kinda fun doing something that didn't involve paper.


Found some curly willow branches at Pier One Imports, which saved me from having to chop down some branches from a tree in our yard, glittered them up, stuck them in this urn-type thing, and added some snowflakes. And there you go.

Now I've got some page kits to finish up for the Little Blue House, and a NASCAR album (the 4th one, I believe) for a friend of Brian's....I love a project. :)
