I am so excited about this file!!!!

We visit a park near our home, it takes about twenty-five minutes to get there. It's called Rocket park and I love it because it inspires my little ones to use their imagination!

Role playing- it's such an important part of childhood.... they climb into rockets and off in space they fly.... WHEE! Soon Jesse's face turns serious as he pilots the space shuttle and to catch this memory makes my heart sore with JOY or to see the Julie smile as she runs through the launch pad...

I want my children to use their imaginations, to be creative, to step outside themselves it's all apart of childhood and if I can help them along the way to take on a different role I will go to those places.... What do you do to encourage your child's imagination?

The Blast Off! Super Pack is now available for purchase in the store.

To celebrate the release of my new file I'm giving away some of the elements found in this super pack.. The download includes the title "Shoot for the Stars", the space shuttle and my flying stars. PLEASE, do not share my work with anyone, this is just for YOU!

I've been busy finding new ways to organize my scrap room so that I can get back to my number one passion and that's creating memories! When everything is a mess I just waste so much time looking for things. I 'm going to give you a sneak-peek at what I've done and show you some organizing tips AND the bargain of the year that I found at the dollar store!!!!!

I scrap out of a HOOSIER CABINET and LOVE IT!!! I just love antiques and collectibles and when we found this old cabinet I just had to have it!!! Sometimes I just get caught up in the thought that some mother was once rolling dough on the porcelain table top of this old cabinet. It just makes it that more unique to be creating memories from. If I need more room to scrap I just pull the top out and it extends giving me nearly another foot to work on!!! Cool isn't it. I never never want to change a thing about it!!! I even love the chipped paint!!! Am I crazy or what?

It's obvious I love to scrap...... my house is full of little projects I have created!


Brads they are too much fun to work with!


I have to have my paint brushes!!!

And paints!
I love to paint but it's been a long time!!
One day soon I'll have to share that work with you too!

Fibers GALORE!!

Ribbons, glitter and more!

Last weeks deal of the year!! These colorful containers found at the dollar tree!!

And YES.... They were only a dollar!

More ribbons!

I just love these containers!

*Jule spent an evening helping me put the flowers on and wrapping my ribbon*

Flowers... I love flowers on pages!

Did I mention.....I 'm going to give you the chance to win a file..... sound like fun? I've been working on a file that's top secret!!!! All I'm going to say is the first one to guess what it is that I've been working on from a CLUE in my pictures wins that file!! So think hard what could I be creating behind the scenes here that would help you get organized?

HaPpY ScRaPpInG!

Think outside the BOX! Growth Chart Classes

After speaking with Michelle I have decided to move to the forum for teaching this project and for teaching future classes you can access that information here by clicking on the link "classes" above. It will explain what I will be offering in the future.

[OK so the link takes you directly to sign up for the "SO BIG" class, please make sure you read the post above it explains how the classes and access to the classroom will work....latest post for today]

You can then sign up for my first on-demand class the "SO BIG" growth chart by going to the second post found under that link. The think outside the box is still being offered free so don't delay in signing up and see the first post for how it should work.

I appreciate you being patient as I shift gears so to speak.. I am very excited about this opportunity to share more and believe it will be a great service to our community at Paperthreads. See you there!


Posted earlier today....

Hello Nikki, Shae, Margaret, Mary and Deb,

Oh my gosh I am totally embarrassed I just realized by reading my post from the sixth that I was going to open that yahoo group and give you the supplies list for the growth chart on the tenth... for some reason I had it stuck in my mind to start today! I guess I better get a calendar in front of my face!!!!

Well here's the deal ... I'm working with Michelle to get a place on the forum, hopefully today! Rather than go off to another group... this way it will feel nice and cozy like home!!!

Once we get our spot set up on the forum I will post the link here for you to go to then you can sign in and I will have the supply list for you there...

All the classes will be instructed right from the forum...sound nice!

So off to get that prepared for you!

I'm sorry for the delay!!
