Happy Earth Day!

Today is Earth Day and I’m spending it at our new mountain house doing a bunch of yard work.  As I mentioned last month, the Tree of Life at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom is one of my favorite parts of that park.

However now that Pandora is open at the same park it’s even more interesting and fun!   Avatar is one of our favorite movies and the environmental theme is really thought provoking.  I’m so glad that Disney Parks is taking that theme to heart and has so many initiatives to promote conservation, including some great solar initiatives!  Click here to read all about those.

Keeping Busy

Hello!  I know it’s been a while and I’m so very sorry.  All of a sudden, life got super busy!

a) It’s Layout a Day month and I’m happy to say that I’ve been keeping up.  Thankfully I’m working on our vacation pictures from our Walt Disney World trip two weeks ago.   Here’s a couple of my current favorites:

b) We’re buying a second home in Twain Harte, CA!  I didn’t realize all the work involved in doing this.  Even with a super Realtor, there’s tons of emails, decisions and effort.  We’re scheduled to close March 2nd and we’ll be spending most of our next many weekends there getting it all set up.  We now have to completely furnish and supply another home.  Thankfully, we have ALOT of extra stuff in our current home so many that will be helpful.

c) We’ve decided to help manage the family ski condo at Northstar at Tahoe.  This also came with more effort than I expected, together with trying to get family decisions made.

d) It’s the last month to qualify to earn the Forever Incentive Trip to Cabo.  I’m trying with all my might to see how close I can get to earning it.  Interested in helping me?  Contact me for my Crazy February Special that is in addition to what Forever is offering this month (can you say cash back when you purchase?).

Thank you for your continued support in reading my blog.  What’s new with you ?

Layout a Day: LOAD218

It’s almost time for another month of layouts!  I’m truly looking forward to LOAD218-Choose Your Own Scrapbook Adventure.   From what I can tell, we’re going to be able to choose from a variety of prompts each day.  I love having choices so this sounds really right up my alley!

I’m currently getting organized using Historian.  I’m loading my pictures from the past several months as well as tagging them and giving them star ratings.  I find this helps me stay on track during LOAD and allows me to focus more time on scrapbooking.

Did you know that LOAD218 is open to anyone and everyone?  If you’re looking to kick start your scrapbooking for this year, consider this challenge.  There’s no judgement for doing one layout or all 28 or something in between.  It’s still more than nothing.  So what are you waiting for?  Join us!  Make your commitment in the comments and then go sign up.

What does food have to do with Scrapbooking?

I recently sent an email about a cool Meal Planning Boot Camp.  Someone replied asking if this was something new I was doing?  Well, not really.  When you scroll through social media, people are posting all sorts of food.  As scrapbookers, we do layouts.  Think about it – did you take pictures of your holiday dinner?  Thought so.

 

The Ultimate Healthy Meal Planning Bundle has over 3,800 recipes, meal plans, and shopping lists, so you’ll never have to cry over what’s for dinner again.

Whether you have a special diet (like keto, vegan, paleo, or gluten-free), need to save money, or have a crazy busy lifestyle that calls for freezer cooking or an Instant Pot, we have what you need to eat healthy, save time and money, and hold onto your sanity.

Check out all the details here https://us154.isrefer.com/go/HMPB2018/a3548/.

Oh and by the way, this will be the perfect help while you’re getting ready for February’s Layout a Day Challenge!

Make it Monday: Thankful for deliveries

I saw this idea on Facebook and knew right away that I wanted to do this.  We have packages delivered year round but like many, lots more this time of year.  This was super easy to implement and so far, our delivery people have been enjoying it!

Do you give service providers holiday gifts?  I remember my mom giving little gifts of ‘nips’ from the beverage store (you know, a candy cane shape with mini spirits).  She would leave them for the postal worker, trash pickup and lawn service people.  How do you thank your team?  Share your ideas in the comments!

Happy Holidays!

Make in Monday: Holiday Gift Tags & Coffee

Since most of my family lives on the East Coast (while I’m West) I wrapped, packaged and shipped holiday gifts this past weekend.  Last year I bought the Stampin’ Up Cookie Cutter Christmas stamps and punch – it’s so versitle!  This year I made gift tags with the set.

I also used some leftover die cuts from a Creative Memories holiday kit.  I pulled out my ancient Xyron to make my life easier – and I’ve fallen in love again with this tool!

 

How are you using your scrappy supplies with your gift wrapping this season?

On another note, Creative Memories is now offering coffee.  This is the family business of the current owner of CM and I know that lots of coffee is consumed during my crops.  Check it out – there’s still time to place an order for holiday delivery!
