National Scrapbook Day - Coming Up

First there is Easter, then there is Mother's Day....but wait.....what is tucked in between the two of them?   NATIONAL SCRAPBOOK DAY!  How fun is this gonna be.

So many opportunities to get together with friend and scrapbuddies for a bit of concentrated fun..

If you are in the Chicago area, there is an event at my house on the 30th (yes, early I know).  Drop me a note if you are interested.   We'll be going from early morning till the wee small hours.  If you're not in the Chicago area, check with you local scrapbook store or in home party consultant.  Pretty much everyone has something going on.

If you can't make it for the festivities or in preparation for the festivities - check out the Treasury from my buddy Jessica.  She has put together some great items for your inspirational needs.  You can find the Treasury at:

Also a papercrafter, her Etsy shop features some really excellent jewelry.  She has a special for Mother's Day that includes a handmade card and gift wrap for your purchase.  Be sure to check it out at

That's what I know today.  Out to door to transport rescue dogs from foster homes to permanent.  Truly a good  day when a dog who has been abandoned goes home to a new family. 

Fabulous Easter wishes from my home to yours.

Which Kraft?

The treasury inclusion streak continues....

My little mini envelopes with tags were recently included in an Etsy treasury all about Kraft items....some great stuff.... tags, twine, journals and oh so much more.  You can see it at:

So many fabulous things on Etsy these days....most particularly for Spring.  I know we're not having much spring here in the midwest where it was 44 cold, wet, and windy degrees here today.  Not very springlike as we roll up on Easter.

Got your Easter bonnet ready for the weekend?

Fantasy Treasury and Tim Holtz In The House

So again I am fortunate enough to have one of my products featured in a treasury on Etsy.  You can see the treasury here:

The treasury is all about things the curator likes to think about when she wants to think about papercrafting instead of whatever else is going on.  What do you think about when you want to take a mental mini-vacation?  The treasury has some really cute items in it.  Be sure to take a peek.

The fine man from FedEx came to see me on this cold and rainy midwest morning and brought a box of Tim Holtz love.  Dies and Texture Fades join the paper and pen nibs and placquettes and resist paper sets and salvage stickers and bottles and baubles and......well..... you get the point.  I think the highlight of this shipment is the shabby banners die.   Very very cute.

Tomorrow's project - paper mache eggs decorated with 7gypsies tissue paper.  What do you think?
