It's Time To....

...order your Front Porch Kit!!

Today is the big reveal day, and I'm so excited to get
to share the fun things I made with this month's kit. :)

Loved getting to scrap 3 of my favorite girls...and I'm (not-so) secretly hoping
that someday at least one of them will be my daughter-in-law. ;)
This kit is beautiful~ love the Basic Grey papers...they are one of my favorite companies.


I made this for my kitchen, inspired by this that I saw on Pinterest.
There's this little skinny wall next to the pantry that needed some love.
I think it's feeling the love now. :)


I re-purposed an old frame, and made this "You are loved always" piece to put in it.

And last, had to make a layout of the boys. :) These pics were taken with my phone on Instagram the day before I left them in Texas for a week this summer.
Love them, and love that this more girly-themed kit
also contains plenty of boy-love scrappy stuff. ;)

It's lots of me~ you want it.

Head on over to Front Porch Kits now to order yours.
You'll be so HaPpY you did...yes, you will. :)

Life is Wonder-Full

So...I may have a new obsession.
It's one I resisted for awhile...prompting friends to ask me what I was waiting for,
that they were shocked that I hadn't gotten hooked yet.
Truth is, I didn't understand it....and I didn't think I had the time to figure it out.

It's a little thing called Pinterest
and it's sucked up way more of my "free" time than I really care to admit.
But I can honestly say that I've reined myself in a lot these past couple weeks....
...mostly because I've been too busy planning all of these DIY projects for the house.
That I happened to see on Pinterest. ;)
This one on the hearth is my first Pinterest-inspired project.
Changed up some to make it mine and fit my style, but inspired nonetheless.

4 wooden boards, put together by my dear husband, stained, paper-crafted,
stamped, and polyurethaned by me. ;)

There are lots of ________-full things, aren't there?
Beauty Full
Hope Full
Peace Full
The list goes on and on...but for our fam and the stage of life the boys are in,
life is in indeed full of wonder here. :)

The Return of the Layout Wall

Today I sent our oldest two boys off to school, and set off to clean the house.
My scrapbook area has been severely neglected this summer. It was such a disaster that instead of dealing with it I just ignored it, working in other areas of my house instead.
Have I ever mentioned that I really hate confrontation? ;)

Today I faced the chaos that is my little red desk head-on, and while I was cleaning up and cleaning out, I came across some of my favorite layouts. These are some oldies but goodies....
Photobucket I decided it was time to add another row to the layout wall that goes up our staircase.

Here are a few close ups...




Got my hands on the new Front Porch Kit this weekend.
Lots of ideas brewing in this brain.
Tomorrow I'm hoping to express what is in my head on paper. And a few other surfaces.

Sneak peeks to come this weekend.
Game on. ;)
