'enjoy the silence'

Ugh.. it’s almost 11 and my eyes are totally feeling so heavy. It’s time to force myself to go to bed. I have been playing tonight in my ‘art journal’…I have been trying to just a little something creative everyday! That is the beauty of an art journal. You can just dabble in it,  nothing […]

found the curls!

Everywhere I go with Capri, people comment on the curls! SO CUTE! I just love them. usually the first thing everyone asks is “where did she  get those curls”? just looking at me and eric, you certainly don’t see curls… and colton definitely has some natural wave as he wears his hair pretty long… we […]


so i have some BREAKING NEWS on the "Club Heidi" front… apparently the kits were shipped via the wrong carrier by accident and as a result didn’t make it to scrapbook.com in time for this mornings open registration! Scrapbook.com has a (very smart) policy, that they will not accept any orders for anything that has […]

baby boy scrapbooking

I have a horrible habit that has resulted in these scrapbook pages completed… when I am totally stressed out, and deadlines are bearing down… without fail, I retreat into recreational scrapbooking. i haven’t taken very many photos of Connor, nor have I taken the time to work on a baby announcement, or focus on trying […]

not lost! & club heidi update!

Don’t worry, I didn’t drop off the face of the earth… just trying to get things figured out! I think that I spent 9 months worrying about how it was going to be to juggle everything. I am happy to report that it is every bit as difficult and overwhelming as I suspected! LOL! actually, […]

color box love…

So I just have to mention a new little ‘addiction’ that I have been developing!! At preview day for  Creative Escape, which- as I have mentioned before, it’s when we get all the volunteers and teachers together and go over all the classes, so that we all know what to expect, blah blah blah… well, […]

being left home from CHA summer!

So for the second year in a row, I am missing the summer CHA show in Chicago…the advantus team is either already there or will be there tomorrow setting up and getting everything ready for the weekend. I really hate missing the show. I love seeing all my industry friends… it’s really the only time […]

one week old!

I can’t believe that it’s been almost a week that Connor has been here! This week has gone by really fast! I hope that I can get this whole thing figured out… try to figure out a schedule and a routine that is  going to work for everyone. This week has been very good. Luckily, […]

day three

I thought I would get a couple photos of this sweet baby connor posted…it’s been so nice to bring him home. We are all just so in love with him!  I think that Capri has finally realized that connor is a force to be reckoned with. He has a bottle and a blinky just like […]
