Happy Blog Anniversary!!!!



Gearing up for a scrap weekend!!! I have quite a few projects I want to work on this weekend so I can devote the majority of my time later this month to working on my adoption scrapbook. I have a good friend coming by tonight to take some photos of Glen and me. I'm also having a few friends over Friday during the day to scrap with me for our monthly get together. It's so wonderful working part-time so I have that option especially during the busy summer months.

I can't believe CHA is next weekend! It was just one year ago that Glen and I were getting ready to head to Chicago so I could work the Upsy Daisy Designs booth and meet my new Rusty Pickle friends. I had a blast and really wish I could go this year...maybe next time. There's a chance I might be working on some samples for Rusty Pickle's booth. I can't wait to start sharing sneak peeks with you - the new lines are going to be fabulous!!! Plus we're coming out with new albums and embellishments and what's this I hear about diecut paper???!!!! Yep, stay tuned!

Here's a new Rusty Pickle project using the Snowflakes & Mittens line. I did a lot of machine stitching and distressing on this one plus used some vintage sheet music.

And perhaps my best news today is that it is my 1 year blog anniversary!!!! Yay! I know I have at least a few readers out there so thanks so much for reading my blog this past year! In honor of my 1 year anniversary, I would like to give away a RAK of a whole line of Rusty Pickle products. And since I've been a reading machine this summer, all you have to do is leave me a book recommendation in the comments section. I'll draw a winner for my RAK on Tuesday.

  4. WAIT...I forgot my book recommendation.

    My recommendation is 90 Minutes in Heaven...even if you don't believe in what he is talking about, just the story of his amazing journey and recovery will blow you away.

  5. I like a light easy read and my friend recommended the Janet Evanovich series. Her 14th book just came out, but I just finished up #2. All the titles have a number in them - One for the Money..etc...

    Happy Blogiversary!

  6. I forgot to recommend a book. I have just finished Love Walked In and it was a great feel-good read. I also read an oldie but goodie called Time and Again by Jack Finney. Really good book.

  7. I left my comment on the wrong post! I am from PP too, the books I recommended were Life of Pi by Yann Martel and The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. Both are older books, but I just read them recently.

  8. I know I emailed you this in a previous post so sorry for the repeat. Nicolas Sparks is awesome. I've loved every one of his books.

    Also-- THANKS so much for the mail love from Rusty Pickle. I got it today! The sports theme will work great for the boys! Let's get together soon to scrap!

  9. Hey, girl, I've missed seeing you! I love the new RP lines....would love some, too! :) Your current reading reminds me of a great book of short stories by Ellen Gilchrist called, "The Light in the Piazza and Other Italian Tales." Try it, esp for good vacation reading.

  12. Wow - love Rusty Pickle, it is one of my two favorite manufacturers. Love their pp and chipboard. My book recommendations are 'Snow Flower and the Secret Fan' and 'Secret Life of Bees'. Both were real page turners.

  13. I am hoping to get ahold of a copy of the book, "The Shack" by William P. Young..... I've heard SO much about it! Funny story about my reading problems. I used to love to read but then it started to get that I would become so impatient to know the ending that I would always skip to the end of the book to find out what happens, then I'd feel guilty and try to force myself to go back to where I was and read the whole book but of course, it just wasn't the same since I knew how the book would end.... This started to drive me crazy so I took a break from reading, well I miss it and plan on trying it again with this book! Happy Anniversary!!!

  14. I agree with the 90 minutes in Heaven recommendation-awesome book! If you want some "intrigue"-go with something from W.E.B. Griffin-they're all good. Congrats on the anniversary-I love everything RP!!

  15. Hello! Happy Blogversary! Love, love, love this project and am SO ready to start some of my own for Christmas . . . being a teacher, once school starts, Christmas is here before you know it! Come On People and Enough should be required reading for everyone, especially educators, community leaders, and social workers, etc. who influence children! :) Thank you for your ideas and inspiration! I'm so glad I found your blog!
