Grab another cup of coffee or tea because this morning I'm going to link send you - so many different things going on/things to share/things I enjoy - I'm just going to lump them all right here.
- On March 1st - the new spring/summer 2011 Creative Memories catalog was revealed. Part of my work as a design team member for Creative Memories is to create layouts and other projects that are then placed in their catalogs and fliers. The above layout is my personal favorite from this current catalog - it can be found on page 173. The directions to create this layout can be found here.
- Now this layout, I did not create. This one was designed by the fabulous Tania Willis. She teaches a class over at Get it Scrapped called In Loving Memory and she gently walks you step by step through the process of scrapbooking the loss of a loved one. That class starts today - you're not too late to join in. Debbie always has a wonderful selection of classes to choose from.
Some other things I'd love to share:
- My friend Katrina launched her new site this month. Katrina is a fabulous photographer who also happens to teach classes at Get it Scrapped, and does a wonderful job capturing the daily. She's encouraged me more than once to participate in the 365 project. She has named her new spot on the web, Capture Your 365. Check it! You won't be disappointed.
- My cousin Brita also launched her new photography site: Brita Caroline Photography
- A collection of some random things I've recently favorited over on Etsy: Go Ask Your Father, Bike Handlebar Bag, I have a thing for aprons.
- A project bookmarked for a rainy day
- The Royal Wedding
- The Japan Tsunami and Earthquake aftermath in photos.
- Video of the Tsunami from a person on the ground - amazing to watch.
- Hemming jeans like a pro. I used this method last week for the first time and from start to finish, less than 20 minutes - and I love the results.
- A few recent videos that I've favorited on youtube: Damien Jurado - Johnny Go Riding, Sylvia's Mother by Dr. Hook - and my kids asked, what does that mean mom, that the operator needs 40 cents for the next 3 minutes? Larry Karjala singing Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay - this song always reminds me of my husband's Navy days. He played it more than once. Speaking of the Navy days - here's a good one from Ray Stevens: Thank you.
