5 For Friday

1. I'm reading an awesome book right now, Room by Emma DonoGhue. I'm only halfway but I'm really intrigued.

2. I'm teaching a class tomorrow morning at The Paperie. I've been putting together a pdf & a few kits to use to demonstrate kitting your supplies. Ever wonder how all those awesome kit clubs make their kits? I'm going to share a few secrets and give instructions and examples of how you can create your own kit and be a more productive and creative scrapper.

3.I've been working on a little masking tutorial/demo I'm planning on giving at The Paperie retreat in November. Can't wait to share. Here's a little sneak.


4. We booked a trip to NYC for American Thanksgiving. I'm so excited. I haven't been in NYC for over a year and I'm yearning to get back. The food, the shopping-we're pumped. I've only been to New York to see the Christmas city lights once and it was almost 6 years ago. M has never been around Christmas time so I can't wait to see it all again with him. So many photo opportunities.

5. This is a cute little idea by Ania. I could see her wedding card on a layout-opening up and unfolding like an accordian. It would be a nice way to hide some journaling and supporting photos.

It's the weekend. Thank God. It's been a week of 5:15 a.m mornings around here as M & I are back to the grind and running and gyming it. I'm t-i-r-e-d. Can't wait to 'sleep in' tomorrow morning.

Have a great weekend!



  1. Can't wait to see the rest of your project.

  2. Your project looks inspiring and I love the idea of making kits of out supplies you already have.

  3. That book is a great read, enjoy the rest of it.

  4. You totally reminded me of an old LO using your idea in #5 - check it out (! Can't wait for tomorrow, should be a fun class!

  5. Great sneak! And yay for going to NYC:-)

  6. whoa. that sneak looks amazing!
