The good old days

My niece came over recently and helped me put this layout together. I am trying to get her interested in scrapbooking since my sister and mom refuse to convert. Maybe I can put her to work on some of the back log :-)

They are sweet pictures of days gone by. Days when they were so easily entertained. We had lunch at this park one Saturday. I don't even think they got on any playground equipment. We just sat there, chilling out. They had never heard of a video game. Ah, the good old days.

Love is in the air...still

Ok, so I am almost a week late on this post. I figure its still February so, feel the love anyhow. This is a special layout, mostly because it is one of a few that doesn't include any of the boys. As a matter of fact, my husband and I will have been married nine years this year and I have yet to create one layout from our wedding. Go figure.

In these pictures we are in our first year of marriage. Not a kid in site. I still had my dreadlocks. I did this layout recently as a sort of valentine for the old man and me. We are a very different couple now. It is a little hard to even write a post about this layout because marriage is such a mixed bag. There are good days and bad. I guess if we are lucky we will remember and appreciate the good, and simply learn and move on from the bad. Our goal is to stick it out regardless. The good does always outweigh the bad. I wish I had something more romantic and less "hang in there" but its just like that sometimes. Happy Valentine's Day! :-)

Getting personal

After much thought and consideration, I have decided to expand my blog outside of just my crafts and include more about me and mine. I hate not being able to post more often because I am busy being mom, yet I read the blogs of many other talented women who don’t make a distinction between their lives and their work/hobbies. They are one in the same. So instead of missing a chance to post because I am making life happen around here, I will include those adventures. They are as much a part of me as my art. So there. Be prepared to get personal!

P.S. I'm trying out a new banner style, let me know what you think.
