My Hometown ATC

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008

One of the women on our letterboxing list was hosting an ATC swap themed “My Hometown” requiring that at least one hand-carved stamp image be incorporated into the design. I don’t get involved with a lot of swaps, mostly because I’m such a procrastinator and I usually wind up burning the midnight oil the night […]

*Sing* ATC

Tuesday, January 29th, 2008

I don’t know why I do this every year… I hit the New Year with this burst of enthusiasm that finds me committing to swaps with reckless abandon. I suppose it is somehow connected to the whole resolution thing… good intentions… but I always end up kicking myself as due dates begin to creep up […]

Egyptian Treasure

Friday, January 25th, 2008

The Grand Rapids Public Museum will be hosting the National Geographic MAPS exhibit from February 2 – May 11. This interactive exhibit on loan from the Children’s Museum in Indianapolis encourages children and families to imagine and explore with hands-on displays, activities and computer simulations such as navigating an Egyptian tomb or following the routes […]

Most Enjoyed Albums of 2007

Saturday, January 19th, 2008

I’ve finally narrowed it down to just 25… my favorite albums from 2007. These albums are all quite heavily part of the rotation on my iPod (well, at least they were before the iPod went kaputz!). Of course my list is heavily tipped toward Adult Contemporary /Alternative /Indie Pop-Rock /Americana with a little Country thrown […]

A Girl and Her [Brand New] Camera

Sunday, January 13th, 2008

My youngest daughter got a new camera for Christmas and has been on a rampage taking photos since then. She seems to have a knack for taking wonderful candid photos of kids. She is mom to the most adorable little guy and babysits daily for my other grandson, who has always been an agreeable photo […]

Where’s the Paper?

Saturday, January 12th, 2008

I find it frustrating and difficult to believe that a city the size of Muskegon does not have a decent place to purchase art and scrapbook supplies. While I don’t do much scrapbooking, I do use many of the same types of supplies when making books and in the other art I do. Specifically, I […]

Winter Wonderland

Friday, January 11th, 2008

Last night it snowed… big, wet snow, the kind of snow that sticks to the tree branches and drapes the entire world with white. My ride to work this morning was nothing short of breathtaking. Along the highway pine trees bowed under the heavy coats of snow that covered their deep green limbs; in the […]

Makin’ Books

Friday, January 11th, 2008

For Christmas Randy got me an awesome antique book press. Take a look… is this cool or what! { Look What I’ve Got } I made journals for my girls for Christmas, so the book press, which I actually received a week early on my birthday (because that’s the day it arrived at the house), […]
