Moving!

Moving!, originally uploaded by krisalis903.

Well, no not really 🙂 But I love making and sending moving cards when the occasion calls for it. Since I don’t have any kids, I had to come up with an inventive way of using this “kid-focused” kit and in the end I loved it!

Feel Better Soon

I’m in the middle of one of those spells where I just feel uninspired. For this card, however, I saw a little spark come back just in time for the Jen Martakis Designs Rain Drops DigiKit to go live 🙂

Life lately has been a little bit of everything. I just finished reading this book called The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeannette Walls for my book club. What an amazing story. I can’t believe the things she and her siblings had to overcome like their struggle through poverty and being raised by two selfish parents. It was inspiring and made me think twice about the things I have, and the things I want in life. I often have a difficult time finishing books that I actually read, but this one was easy.

I think I’m ready for a short spring break though. Maybe not a vacation, just some time off so I can do things around the house. It’s weird but some of my best days off are days when I stay home and get things done around the house 🙂

Spring Has Sprung

I never thought I would actually look forward to warmer weather, but here it is 🙂

Last fall I planted some tulips and so far this is the only one out of the five that’s sprouted. An interesting note about this photo: while I was shooting, I noticed something out of the corner of my eye. I turned and saw a squirrel had stopped halfway up my stairs. He stared at me, not moving, and just as I aimed my camera in his direction, he turned and sprinted down the stairs and into the woods. It would’ve been a great shot!

Here’s the digital layout I created using the photo above. I hate to admit this but I think I’m really liking digital scrapbooking 🙂
