A New Year Full of Inspiration

With a new year, comes change. I know that many of you are currently surrounded by a mountain of paper, gifts, and leftovers, and cannot even begin to think about the new year, but, for me, it’s be a month of prayer, planning, and wrestling with the brain monsters as I have struggled over what would be best for you and me in the upcoming months.

I have made the decision to go back to doing what I love, which means that there will be some changes made to my list of classes. My goal for the new year is to be true to myself, inspire, and teach, and with those goals in mind, I am excited to share with you what I have planned in the coming months.


Coming Spring 2020

I have made the decision to discontinue my Kit of the Month, Workshop Guides, & Local Scrapbook Classes. Thank you to all of you who have supported me this past year and have purchased my kits, guides, and have signed up for workshops.  I have NOT forgotten you and I KNOW Memory Keeping and photo journaling is important to all of us, so I have decided to OFFER YOU SOMETHING EVEN BETTER!!
