So many Creative Options

Creative Options

My collaboration with Creative Options has been great. Not only am I getting more organized (a video showing proof of this will be revealed next week), I am able to highlight cool things that others are doing with the fashionable, functional storage solutions. In the last post with Creative Options, you got a glimpse of how a 3rd grader, college student and I used these […]


amy tangerine/shimelle

Absolutely loving Shimelle’s first signature collection with American Crafts! As you can see, I’m all about spreading out the products and making a happy mess while creating. I’m also not opposed to using pink on my pages with Jack on them. Loving the gold hearts and mix of beautiful fonts and patterns.

Sewed Minialbum by Olennka


I need to admit that I love minialbums. I love to create them, collect them and finally after a while browsing page by page. It’s great idea to gather more photos in one place. Now I can see that it was worth to make lots of minialbums. Nowadays my son – he’s three – is viewing my albums and keep asking questions about photos, places […]

Boom Boom Room

Last Saturday we participated in our first Pre-Emmy’s event at the Beverly Hilton. The last event we did similar to this was for Pre-Oscars back in March. This was our little happy corner. Next week I’ll show you more fun photos like this one, but for now, here’s our crew and set up. Photos by Jamie Waters || Mostly we had Plus One products on hand, […]

Studio Calico Poet Society kits

Can’t believe another month has gone by and summer is about to come to an end. Jack will be turning 1 next month and I can hardly believe it. I used a lot of photos of him, some older, and some more recent. These Poet Society kit colors were versatile enough to use for any occasion, for boys or girls. Here’s how this main kit […]

Getting Organized with Creative Options!


Don’t you love finding awesome products to help you get organized? I certainly do! Since I am still in the process of setting up the studio in a fully functional way, when Creative Options contacted me about a possible collaboration, I had to say yes. Who doesn’t want to be more organized? I, for one, can definitely use some help in that department. Remember these […]

Ginko Papers discount code

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, then you know I love cute things. Especially when they are stationery/paper related. I think it goes back to my childhood and various obsessions, including the normal stamp collection and not so normal Post-It note & eraser collection. Oh and there was also the mechanical pencil collection. Now as a grown up, I have a bit […]

Take me out to the ball game


While we were in Chicago in June, JC got us tickets to the Pirates vs. Cubs game. Although I can’t say for sure, I think it was my first time to Wrigley, even though I lived in the northern suburbs for the first 15 years of my life. Upon waking, we got Jack dressed in the Pirates jersey that JC got him from Fanatics, and […]

Workspace Wednesday


The other day I was trying to come up with a mini manifesto for the moment. I wrote the word simplify. And because that just wasn’t enough, I just kept writing.The brush says Royal 2 on it, but can’t remember where it’s from, sorry! I used this watercolor set from Michaels, but found some alternative options – Colortopia Watercolor Set | this one | and […]

Hand stitched greetings


When it comes to sending out cards, I always feel like I am behind. I thought I would get ahead of the game by creating these cards using the best white pen ever – also known as the Uni Ball Signo. I hand wrote some sentiments and could have really kept them as is, but decided it would be more interesting if they were also […]
