It’s easy to scrapbook older photos and events when I create my page layouts. Now and then I am challenged to create a page that’s more of a “slice of life” moment describing things in real time. This is one of those pages that focuses, specifically, on where I am in life right now.
As you probably know (or can easily guess) I am obsessed with crafts and have been since I was little. What you may not know is that my best friend since high school is as craft-crazed as I am! Luckily for me we have had the opportunity to take many craft classes together over the years. This page is just a nod to some of our projects! As you can see we have done everything from lamp making, jewelry design, hand knitting, painting, altered art, scrapbooking, etc. If it’s a cool craft you can assume we have either done it or hope to take a class in the future!
Today’s layout challenge had me thinking about a favorite childhood book and the lessons learned from it. Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak was one story I treasured and read countless times. When my sons were little it was also one of their favorites! It is a children’s story but the lessons work for adults as well.

One of my favorite spaces in my house isn’t technically indoors. We have a lovely lanai and I think it’s one of the most beautiful and peaceful places for me. It’s where I spent the most time relaxing and a great space to just … breathe.
Rome had always been a city I dreamed of visiting. My husband felt the same way. We almost went there for our honeymoon but the cost was a bit steep for us at the time. We both agreed that “someday” we would go there together. It took us twenty years but we finally made it to “the Eternal City” and it was as spectacular as we had hoped. We may have had to wait two decades but it was definitely worth the trip!
Today’s layout challenge from Scrap Happy was to find inspiration in a magazine cover. The recent issue with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell inspired me to “scraplift” the cover and design a page with my guy. Designed using Artisan 6 software.
