Monthly Archives: July 2015



Michelle had a very busy birthday month in June traveling the globe, so her birthday sale has turned into a July unbirthday sale beginning July 17, 2015.  Everything in the shop will be 40% off until July 19th!
We will kick things off with a Mickey Brag Book Blog Hop!  Michelle’s awesome team has created the perfect pages to help you put together a sweet highlight, birthday, or special occasion book in a jiffy!
“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”
Michelle is revealing another 100 Acre Woods friend this week!  As Piglet says “It’s so much more friendly with two.”  This fabulous kit of 100 plus elements and papers will certainly fulfill your need for those Piglet meet and greets, breakfast at the Crystal Palace, or parade pictures.  You will be able to use this versatile kit to capture the memories of many other events in your life as well, especially if you love pink!  There are flowers, balloons, hearts, butterflies, ladybugs, kites, buttons, bows, ribbons, brads, frames, flairs, and wonderful word bits. The pattern and solid papers are fantastic and there are 3 different alphas included as well.  Be sure to check out the coordinating pieces too!

These are the pages I created with Oh Dear Deary Dear Dear:


Blog Hop Ahead!! The girls created several 5 by 7 Brag Book pages that will make a great little album! They were all created as pngs with no extra shadows! Make sure you collect all 12 along with a cover!
Be patient, links should be valid by 8am Friday morning. 
Be sure to thank them for their generosity and wonderful work!

The concept for this blog is credited to my 10 year old son. He loves to draw and he loves to write. He also has a wicked sense of humour. He has created several comics in his desire to one day become famous.

This is one of the first ones he wrote.

First Comic

It makes me laugh.

He has since moved on to create many more characters.

He wanted a venue to host his creativity and share ideas.

So did I.

This is it.

It is called Surrender the Sandwich after the comic.

In between his comic posts, I intend to share a little bit of my creative outlet. Not every day – only when the chaos of daily life permits!  Come back and check in now and again and see what’s going on……. I guarantee we’ll be up to something!
