Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.

Take seemingly ordinary everyday life moments like this...

And create a story.

I am not a 'fancy' scrapbooker.
By any means.
I do complex layouts once in a while.
When I'm inspired to be artsy.
But mostly I like to 'get the job done'.
Because I am the memory keeper here in my space.
I am not around to see many of these clips in the days in of grandchildren's lives.
But I feel them as much as I able.
I study each picture sent to me over and over again.
I 'hear' the message they tell me
and then I put it down on pretty paper.

My kitchen table today:

and that is why I need a craft room!
I want to make my little girls bows for the upcoming holidays.
Making a few is never an option.
It's gotta be dozens!
Can't wait to send them to my 'Big' girl.
She loves when I make stuff for her kids.
And I love to be appreciated.

My coffee table in the kitchen covered with another project yet to be revealed.

Busy week coming our way.
There will be lots of cooking and baking going on here.
I am so looking forward to eating yummy food.
Having some of my children here at home...
It's gonna be great.
Live your life fom your heart. Share from your heart. And your story will touch and heal people's souls.
