Hello everyone out there in scrapbooking land!  I know I have been MIA since I closed my SNP store back in March...

But I have some exciting news for you! I have decided to add some of my scrapbooking templates and kits to a store on Etsy!  

I am starting out small, just added three template packs so far, but hopefully when life calms down some I will add more.

Right now, I have been focusing on my daughters health.  She had lots of issues over the summer and many doctor trips... no answers. Then about two weeks ago on another trip to CHOP, we finally got answers.  She has a rare nerve disorder called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. (CRPS) formally called RSD.  She is in physical therapy now, and we are hoping for a full remission in the next few months.  There is no cure, but the hope is with exercise and therapy it can be managed.

Our summer also got thrown another wallop.... One of my sweet littles, that I have taken care of for over 4 years, since she was 6 weeks old, became an angel.  Our whole family is heartbroken for her, for her family and for us.... We will forever cherish our special time with her.
I have not been able to scrap pages for her yet, but hopefully soon I can.

But back to the happy news, please keep an eye on my Etsy store for items to be added!!

Hope you all have a happy scrappy day!!

Closing my store at SNP

Things have definitely been crazy busy since I last posted.  I did release two new kits.  My oldest finished her first semester at college.  My seconds started her search for college.  And my other two just like to keep me on my toes! We celebrated Christmas, had a vacation, remodeled the basement....still working on it.  Completed the big bedroom swap of 2017, all the girls swapped rooms.  Paint, floors, furniture..... Then doctors... one kid fell down a flight of stairs, one had a very scary asthma attack and then pneumonia...
It's been rough.
So with all of that going on...
It is with a sad heart, I have decided to close my store at SNP. Things have gotten way to busy at home and with my little daycare.  I thought that as the kids got older I might have more time, but the opposite seems to be true. 

I just don't have the time to put my best effort into my kits. It was a hard decision to make, even after my break last year. I am ever so thankful to SNP owner Lori and everyone else at SNP for teaching me everything I know about designing (and scrapping) and giving me the opportunity to do this and grow my creativity.I hope to return someday.  I may even do a blog train now and then.  

Now my sad news can be good news for you.... my whole store is on sale!  So stop by and grab some goodies while you can.  My store will close on March 31, 2017.

:) Happy scrapping!

I'm BACK! Been There, Done That

Oh my has the last 6 months been busy... 
I know I've been a bit MIA.  
The biggest thing that happened is my oldest graduated and has gone to college.  The end of the school year was crazy with all the senior stuff and regular family stuff.  We did take an amazing 2 week vacation.  Then back at home we hosted 3 big parties over the summer.  I started working more on my educational supplies at Teacher Pay Teachers. Then we had to ship her off to her dorm.  Craziness.  Been trying to do more drawing and painting.  Computer issues...needing to upgrade and learn Photoshop CC and LightRoom...  I knew I wouldn't be around much.  I thought about coming back in October, because that was my 5 year anniversary of when I started designing and selling at Scraps n Pieces.  But lots of fall photo shoots took up my time!  

But I now finally have a new kit!!!  It's called Been There, Done That and it's a just about perfect for almost any type of layout!!

This colorful kit is packed full of great papers and awesome ellies to help you scrap all kinds of awesome pages of your adventures, so you can say....Been There, Done That.

Check out these pages made by my CT gals!

So hurry over to my store at SNP and 
grab this sweet kit while it's on sale!!
