Here's what I've Been up to Lately....

A little bit of this......
Barbeque with friends in Brooklyn's beautiful Prospect Park.

A lot of this......

My law school graduation. Crazy that it's come already, but a happy day:)

Note to self:In the future, don't hold a diploma and camera case in front of my head in a photo. Sigh.

And not enough of this.....

Precious scrappy time. I'm working on a few things I can't share yet (wink, wink), but I have this page from last week to show you. The envelope design was inspired by Steph Howell, and the page is a needed reminder of one of my favorite analogies--that life is like the back of tapestry, where you can only see the mess and knots, but not the picture they are forming.

I've been feeling a little frustrated about scrapping lately, a sign that I'm worrying too much about the public side of this hobby. So I'm focusing on just feeling the love again:)

How bout you?


  1. Huge congrats on the graduation, babe!!!! So exciting!!! And I do love that page! Great title work. Don't let the drama get to you. You're the one that has to love your work when you're old and gray and reminiscing through your pages. :) (But if you're like me, I rarely look at my really dated scrapbook pages b/c I think they are a train wreck of a sticker sneeze, lol)

  2. Big congrats on your graduation! Very cool! Great page, love that paper so much!

If you need some advice on how to do it, let me know and I can walk you through what I did. Congrats on the graduation! (P.S. All of the photos from my graduation are TERRIBLE!)
