etst Keeping up on scrapbooks and printed albums is a lot harder with three kids than it used to be, but, praise be, there's hope for the babies of the family. Another birthday around the bend--sharing Dash's 2nd year book on the blog today with a special #MyPublisher offer and a $250 book credit giveaway. I love it so much! #MyPublisher #ad 6h

  •   cinnammonn You must already be straight on to party preppin' for Dash now. How do you do it! 2h
  •   maddogmatt @etst just curious as to which paper finish you chose for this book...Matte or Satin? Thanks 😀 56min
  •   etst @maddogmatt I did satin and love it, but I'm working on a book for Nella and think I'll try matte just to compare. Might lose some vibrancy but sometimes I like that softer look. 47min
  •   maddogmatt @etst thanks!! I do like the softer look of Matte too but the vibrancy of Satin does pop your photos to life!! I guess it depends on the photos and event and the effect you are trying to achieve. I do Love how you put Dash's book together with just photos!! Gorgeous!! Thanks for sharing!! 27min

etst Nella's birthday party was held at a community art and outreach center, one where I used to take the girls for classes when they were smaller. Today Miss Lulu, the woman who runs the organization, presented Nella with this piece of art. I had forgotten all about it. Nella and Lainey's hands painted the pink background when Nella was a baby. Since then, other kids in the community have added to it to create a masterpiece of different colors, ideas and feelings. I cried while Miss Lulu reminded all the kids and their parents how important we are to each other--how important our responsibility is to take care of each other. "People worry about the planet," she said, "Mother Earth will be okay...it's the human race that needs help. We must love and take care of each other. It's our most important job." The last fifteen minutes of the party were spent dancing--every kid, even the shy ones. Holding hands and twirling wands and snaking through the room in a big Conga line--a vision I couldn't begin to comprehend when she was born. I love this new art in their room--a constant reminder that we're all in this together, and that I don't always have to see the finished masterpiece. It will happen on its own, with help from loving community. We just have to do our part...keep painting. 2d

etst Grandma's birthday treasures arrived--a collection of doll gems, some from childhood memories, many homemade and a handful scored on eBay after God knows how many hours of her searching and bidding. I don't know what I love more--watching her play with them or thinking about how much my mom enjoyed putting this together. Also, it's quite possible that I will someday be the old lady rocking baby dolls, convinced they are real. 1w

etst "If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way." ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
Thankful for great leaders who left us with profound words, universally applicable and timelessly meaningful. It's more than love wins these days. It's love and ACTION. Even if action is great small acts. Happy Monday!
