Scrapbook Questions

YellowBunnies (an old and dear friend), offered these questions in the comments section a few weeks back.  Hopefully she didn’t think I had forgotten about her!  Here’s the crafty questions she posed: I have a box in a closet in a spare room labeled “scrapbook” and every time I have a ticket stub or maybe […]

POTD – January 9

About a week and a half old, I know, but it very accurately captures that day. This is our downstairs family room where we spend the majority of our time.  Mike had taken Tally to a friend’s house to watch the football game (it was Sunday afternoon), so I took advantage of the undisturbed floor […]

Project Life

I’ve been scrapbooking since high school.  I have ten years worth of yearly scrapbooks.  Over the years my style has gotten much fancier and more “scrapbook”-y, with embellishments and stickers and layers of cardstock and journaling tags.  But all of the yearbooks since graduating from college look fairly similar.  There’s a page for my birthday.  […]

Belated Holiday Wishes

I’ve been reveling in holiday fun the past few days.  Lots of good food, family, friends, and frivolity.  It’s exhausting squeezing this much into a few short days, but living so far away from everyone means visits home are jam-packed. As such, it’s taken until now for me to post my Christmas card and send […]

Cross One Off the Wish List…

I have been complaining about not being near an Archiver’s scrapbooking and paper crafts store since we arrived in Washington.  The nearest one is in Boise.  Idaho.  Nine hours away.  Don’t think I haven’t pleaded with NavyGuy to drive me there on a road trip. But, now I can at least get my fix digitally… […]

It’s been too quiet on the crafty front…

With all the travel, there hasn’t been much crafting as of late.  However, Mom requested a few cards to have on hand for future gifts, so I whipped up a few. This one is definitely my favorite, and I’ll definitely be duplicating it again and again:

Calendar Squares

During a deployment, one of the fun things the spouses do for the officers is create calendar squares.  Each spouse makes one or two per month (depending on the size of the squadron) and they are displayed in a large calendar type configuration in the squadron ready room (think, teacher’s lounge type room where all […]
