Heart of the Holidays {a giveaway}

Here we are on the cusp of The Holiday Season and I have to tell you I am so completely FULL..of excitement and anticipation and reflection and love for all the things I love most about this beautiful time of year.  The traditions, the preparations, the sounds and sights and smells.  And yes, even the busy.  I think I so love this season because Story lives in its every nook and cranny.  And because it keeps me so naturally focused on all the things that matter most to me:  Family, Faith, Memory Making, Tradition, Joy.

I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to share story encouragements and nudges as part of Tiffany Tillman’s amazing Heart of the Holidays class at  It’s just the kind of project that helps to document the holiday memories with ease and with creativity and with a heart for the story. (more…)

Just Press Play :: November 2012

Welcome to the Just Press Play monthly story challenge for November!!  Just Press Play is a monthly challenge that is story-and-prompt centric.   My hope is to encourage you to Just.Press.Play.  Just start, just begin.  Dive in to telling your story one page, one journal prompt, at a time and have a lot of fun in the process.

It goes like this: I post a prompt.  You get your story on, creating and sharing your page or project inspired by the journaling nudge.    One winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to my store! (more…)

Happy fresh month.  Happy BYOC.  Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day.  Happy Happy.  So very much to be happy about!  This time of year is one of my most favorite.  I just adore the cooler weather, the celebration of creativity, the bubbling anticipation for the holiday season that is just around the corner.  And the sense of gratitude that covers it all.

And the beginning of November is FULL of all of that.  This month’s Build Your Own Collab at The Lilypad is another stellar collection. It is a burst of color and warm and creativity. (more…)
