Day one of my blogging experience.

I took the big step to digital scrapping and I really like the results. However, I have to add dimension with some tactile treats... ribbon, flowers, bling, etc. My order from 2 Peas of "Love, Elsie" products arrived yesterday and I'm anxious, anxious, anxious to create something with them. After reading Stacy Julian's The Big Picture... a "must" to read and reread... I've been much more introspective and have changed my scrapping focus. I journal more from my heart and even in my own handwriting... which was never good enough before. I think my products now are an insight into who I really am, rather than just creating a cutesy and clever layout or mini book.

My husband Boyd is a fantastic cook... he calls his time in the kitchen "my scrapbooking time". I reap the benefits of his "play"... YUM! He's on his computer ordering cooking supplies and I'm ordering art supplies.

My daughter Kristin just bought her first home... a condo on Michigan Ave in Chicago. What a view! It's fun to watch her decorating it and to see how different our color choices are... she's using soft colors and it looks lovely. I'll post some pictures when all is done. She moved in Easter weekend and she is almost finished. She is a dynamic & energetic girl.

My other daughter Wendy is sporting a sparkling new engagement ring... so beautiful! She'll be moving next month from Washington DC to Arizona. She's doing their house in yellow, red, and black... now that I can relate to!

They both have such inner and outer beauty! I'm so proud to be their Mom.

Must get out of my jammies and accomplish something... like cleaning.
