I've had some people wanting a weekend crop

@

The Drury Arnold

in

June 2020.

Who's interested?

It would be a small group - maybe 20 or 30 max.

No prizes or giveaways

and a

super cheap 3 day crop.


Why . . .

I think of myself as an organized person.

Grandma taught me

"A place for everything and everything in it's place".

That's how I grew up.

So

WHY

do I keep things in 3 different places

online

&

in files?

I am a collector of

recipes,

paper arts tutorials & pretty photos,

decorating

&

the list goes on.

Right now, it's in 3 different places:

file folders in carts, Pinterest & Feedly.

UGH!

Slide1-1

So I'm going through my recipe file

& looking for the recipe on Pinterest.

Once I find the recipe,

I PIN it and recycle the paper recipe.

One more bin of recipes and that's finished.

Next up, Feedly

with years of ideas saved.

I'm transferring my Feedly saves to Pinterest.

But I'm still going to use Feedly

so I don't miss any of the blogs I follow.

I have several categories on Pinterest

and will keep those.

So that's what I've been up to between

Christmas and New Years day.

Organized

How do you organize online?

 


Looking forward to 2020 . . .

Are you ready for a new beginning?

2020: A Year In Focus 

is waiting for you

on the

Button Farm site.

My latest mini is chock full of pages for the entire year.

You'll find places for many photos

on each page

with each page dedicated to one month of the year 2020.

 

For this project I used gorgeous Graphic 45 papers and embellishments.

This is the first kit of its kind 

and the most jammed packed kit ever with

 Button Farm.

Pressed for time?

Work one page a month, adding photos as you go.

Here's a look at February:

A year in review . . .

Intro

Thanks to all of you

This year found me designing for

and it's been a blast!

I'm now hosting 4 crops a year

and a

Meet Me In St. Louis Weekend of Workshops

September Event

And I couldn't have done it without your support.

Beautiful journal surprise . . .

IMG_5754

On November 29, I celebrated the 30th anniversary of my 40th birthday.

And received this little beauty

from an online Facebook group I belong to

Junk Journal Junkies.

Isn't it adorable!

IMG_5755

I didn't open it until my birthday (although it was really hard not to)

but well worth the surprise!

Love this bead on the pin. Going to use this idea on a future project.

IMG_5756

The inside front cover had a handmade tag with polka dots in a striped pocket.

Love!

IMG_5757

Hand stitched together with beautifully dyed & inked pages.

IMG_5758

The inside back cover housed another pocket

IMG_5759

with adorable tiny tags.

The finale was the back cover with a bookmark in a pocket.

What a great birthday surprise and so appreciated!

Thank you to whomever made this.

It's a true treasure.
