If you have unlimited energy and are happy with your weight, you can go ahead and skip this post. Scrapbooking is about chronicling your life, and although this is not about scrapbooking per se, it is about life, and more specifically the fuel of life. Food.Continue reading

I’m Back, But Not Scrapbooking Yet.

I’m Back, But Not Scrapbooking Yet.

So after an all too brief battle with pancreatic cancer, my colleague at work mercifully died in her sleep last Saturday. She will be missed.

I still don’t seem to have the motivation to scrap right now. But I know that it will come back to me soon.

Meanwhile, despite ignoring the site for a ridiculously long time (and seriously contemplating selling it)…I was shocked to discover one of my pages went viral. It’s the one with the video about making cute origami scrapbooking affirmations.

Last Saturday, I had nearly 3000 visitors. Wow.

Since that post was about the origami part of the equation, I thought I’d at least do a post about the affirmation part. You can see some of the best affirmations here.

Here’s hoping life is treating you well. Let me know if there’s a scrapbooking topic you’d like me to tackle….because right now, I’m at a loss. Comments, as always are welcome.

Re-reading Some Fabulous Books-The Joy Diet

Re-reading Some Fabulous Books-The Joy Diet

Although this is not scrapbooking specific, I just wanted to share with you some of the fabulous books I’m re-reading. This one in particular I read a couple of years ago when things were pretty dark in my life and it was so uplifting. Things aren’t nearly as dark as then….but let’s just say there is ‘dim-ness’ and leave it at that.

And what is the book?

It’s called [easyazon-link asin=”B001A6ZWLA” locale=”us”]The Joy Diet: 10 Daily Practices for a Happier Life[/easyazon-link] by Martha Beck.

I made a little infographic of the 10 ‘ingredients’ of Joy, for you to, ahem….enjoy!Continue reading
