It never fails. She loses her favorite toy. I find a replacement. She finds the original.

After Morgan saw my completed Fave mini book, she asked if she could make one of her own. Uh, yessss! This week she filled out her favorites prompt sheet - a free printable included with my Mini Book Workshop - and now she is running around taking pictures with her iPod. So cute! I love when she wants to document her life too.

If you want to join in and make a mini of your favorite things with me, Sunday is your last day to enroll! Links to the class + kit in my profile. #scfavemini
As purge-happy as I can be, my shelves are home to so many things I hold dear. Including my grandma’s thread collection and an incredibly Raggedy Ann. This was my third + the only one that is still intact because I loved on her hard. When I look at her now, I remember our many adventures. I can still see the marker on her face from when I pretended it was makeup. And though it’s faded now, I can see my name on her back, written in my mom’s neat handwriting, because I used to take her to kindergarten with me. We went everywhere together. Obviously not the bathtub though. 😂 I think it gives her character.
currently // printing photos + trimming Austin memorabilia + adding pieces from the @kellypurkeyshop Admit One kit for my latest mini book. Clearly I was so into this trip that I didn’t share any of it here. My bad. Sometimes it’s nice to just enjoy what is around you without posting it on social media. Is it just me? 🤷🏻‍♀️

Anywho, having done some of the prep work before my trip, this mini is going to come together quick! On my YouTube channel (link in profile), I’m sharing a real time process video of how I put together my Austin mini book covers. (You can see them in my IG feed right below this photo. 👇🏻) And real time, meaning, 20 minutes. 😬

Not my typical process video but so true to what real project evolution looks like. Let this be proof that scrapbooking, and life, and almost everything, is a lot of just figuring things out as you go. 🤔
my weekly gratitude // feeling on top of the world after a week away, quiet breezy Sunday mornings, kids who already know what they want to be for Halloween (mine tend to wait until the last minute!) 😜🎃🤷🏻‍♀️
Finding a lot of joy in being outdoors these days, so the new @kellypurkeyshop Wild stamp set + Home Sweet Home kit really spoke to me in this new spread for my summer album. 🌿🏡☀️

The September release is now live in her shop, plus you can check out a process video on how this layout came together - both links in profile.
I'm soooo excited I'm heading to Austin next week!! Naturally, that means another mini in the making. New @kellypurkeyshop stamps (coming 09.28) + acrylic album covers by @jamaica16 and I can't wait to fill it up!
my weekly gratitude // a nice visit with my mom, DIY matcha lattes, finding hearts in nature.
Following a whim I got this week to start a personal album to document some life changes right now. Photos. Lots of journaling. Intentional products. No deadline. Simple.
My mini book basket is overflowing again. Time to weed some of these out to another home, or get another basket. 🤔
1 kit + 20 minutes = another layout in my summer album. Slow but sure, I’m making progress. The @kellypurkeyshop Summer Vacation Traveler’s Notebook kit works great for PL spreads too - that stamp set is a definite fave. You can see a quick (under 6 minutes!) process video, or shop for @kellypurkeyshop products, via links in my profile.
my weekly gratitude // a great first week back to school, time to hike + breathe + tend to the house, being around people who want to solve problems instead of just complain about them.
Today is the day! My newest class is now enrolling over at @studio_calico. Make a mini book with me and document all of your favorite things!

In the workshop, we'll talk about choosing photos, pairing them with memorabilia, plus I've got a printable of 40+ prompts to help you choose what favorites you want to include in your mini.

Check out the links in my profile to sign up for the class (just $10!) and to see an unboxing of the kit I used, Lyra, now available on the Studio Calico shop. #scfavemini
my weekly gratitude // trying a new campground and loving it, quiet time to finish the book I started in January, friends who make moving to a new school a whole lot easier.
Adding my favorite apps to my #scfavemini since they pretty much change on a weekly basis.
The August release is now available in the @kellypurkeyshop and it's full of pretty things to document your summer. Here's a clip from the process video for my first spread using the Life Lessons kit + Captured stamp set. Link to the full video - on YouTube- in my profile.
my weekly gratitude // a lazy pizza picnic in the playhouse, an invitation to a weekend away, ending a crazy week with loads of clarity + light.
Here's a peek at the stamp set (in action!) in the @studio_calico Lyra add-on // the kit I'm using for my fave mini album.

The little square frame fits perfectly inside a 2x2 photo or card, and the words and phrases (or your own journaling) go inside the narrow block. It's seriously my favorite part of the kit and I'm *trying* not to overuse it! #scfavemini
They wanted to go to the park to play "Adventure Kids." I had a much better (+ quieter) idea. 🌿
🎶These are a few of my favorite things. 🎶

Not sure what to include in your faves mini album? When you enroll in the class, you'll get a list of over 40 prompts, plus space to fill in your own. #scfavemini
