A big 'ole toot to share!
Late last year, I was asked to be a part of an amazing new book published by Memory Makers books: Show It Off! I just received my copy of the book the other day and I am just having so much fun oohing and aahing over it! There are so many great ideas in there on how to show off your scrapbooking and not just keep it hidden in your albums. It's sort of a how-to display things in your home and get cool things up on your walls. You really should have a look!

Here are my projects that are in the book- A little 9x9 framed photo box & pic of me and Jeff (courtesy of Hallmark):

Two wall hangings (one for Sadie and one for Madison and THANK goodness I picked up a third when I bought these frames at Hobby Lobby, because baby David will need one, too!)

Some close-ups:

A fun little paper bouquet:

And a mini album about a trip my parents and nieces took to Michigan one weekend:

Loads of new jewelry pieces in my Etsy store!
Being sick really is not so much fun, but it has given me lots of downtime to make some jewelry! I've had such fun lately making bracelets, so I've listed a whole bunch of them in my Etsy store: Retrouvez.

I will also happily do custom orders, so if you see an idea/concept you like but aren't wild about the colors, please just ask me and I would love to make something special just for you!
