My two cents: Is scrapbooking dead?

I have to admit it: The future of scrapbooking seems to be limited. Yep, I said that out loud. In public. For the world to see. Today, Becky Higgins and Cathy Zielske posted on Facebook a link to a Studio 5 production called “Is Scrapbooking Dead?” that will air tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 14. My gutContinue reading “My two cents: Is scrapbooking dead?”

Page Share: Being Sergeant Willgo

My husband just finished a week of playing Drill Sergeant Willgo at Vacation Bible School at our church. It was a little bit of a stretch for him, mainly because he was tasked with talking to the kids about Jesus, sharing the Gospel each night with 30 young people. It was a little nerve-racking forContinue reading “Page Share: Being Sergeant Willgo”

Page Share: You & Me

Journaling: In just a couple of weeks, we will celebrate 13 years of marriage. Thirteen! And what is even more amazing, we have been together almost 18 years…more than half of my lifetime. Wow. We have come a long way in those 18 years. We started together as just kids, teenagers in love who believedContinue reading “Page Share: You & Me”

What love really means

I would never call my 9-year-old son a “mama’s boy” in front of him, for fear he would be immediately embarrassed and determined never to do anything ever again that would make him appear to be such. But the truth is, I love that he sort of is, for lack of a better term, aContinue reading “What love really means”

Sometimes I need a little kick in the head…

Yes, sometimes I do. And sometimes God has a way of doing just that — knocking me upside the head when I need a reality check. The last half of July and the first half of August have flown by in a blur as I have been dealing with some heavy-duty family stuff (plus aContinue reading “Sometimes I need a little kick in the head…”

School Days kit really is coming soon!

I know I’ve been chatting about my School Days kit “coming soon” for quite a while now. The truth is, I lost my energy for design for a few weeks and just needed a break. The good news is, last night I stayed up late and worked on my new kit for a few hours.Continue reading “School Days kit really is coming soon!”

From screen to scrapbook: Part 2 (hardbound books)

(Warning up front: This is a long post, so if you want to jump to the meat of it – comparing three digital hardbound book printers – click here!) This is definitely one of my favorite things about digital scrapbooking: Printing all of my layouts together in a hardbound, coffee-table-quality book. I actually just recentlyContinue reading “From screen to scrapbook: Part 2 (hardbound books)”
