Need some gift ideas?

In a year where handmade gifts have made a comeback, my first choice is always to make it personal and crafty. But you don't have to be a crafty person to make these gifts. Most of the work is done for you - if you'd like it to be. We have digital software programs, traditional scrapbooking products and tools, we have storage solutions, a photo printing center and even a variety of frames. We have products that range from quick and easy to skilled and crafty. And I can help you figure it all out...

Not sure what to make? Well, I might have just the thing for you.
I help people like you make memorable gifts for yourself, your friends and family,
many high quality projects that bless homes with smiles around the world.

And you can find these and other photo projects
and holiday craft ideas on my website.

Be sure to visit the project center! You can always contact me for help with your specific project, photo preservation questions or anything of that nature. You can order online from anywhere, and it will be shipped to your doorstep in just a week or two! [Order this week to guarantee Christmas Delivery.]

Scrapbooking is one of my favorite hobbies, and it might just become one of yours - that is, if you're not already hooked! :)

Thankful MEME

Sarah has tagged me for this meme.

According to the rules, I have to post six things that make me really happy
... and pass it on to give six more people a reason to be thankful!

1. I am happy that the Lord showers me with Graces to help me through each day and each trial.

2. I am thankful for my husband who loves me so much, he is always giving of himself and making sure me and the kids are happy before his own happiness. Even if it means sleep depravation!

3. I am happy for the life within me, that reminds me of God's great mysteries and the preciousness of life from as early as conception.

4. I am thankful that we have such a beautiful home in which we foster faith, hope and love.

5. I am happy with my life thus far, even though it has taken quite a few unexpected turns.

6. I am thankful for all my blogger friends who for some reason still read my ramblings, care for me, and encourage me to pray and remind me to simply TRUST in God.

I tag:
anyone who wants to give this one a shot.

Chasing Fireflies

I've been holding onto this magazine for awhile because I really wanted to blog about this fabulous company that caught my eye. Ever heard of Chasing Fireflies?

They have very expensive clothing, toys, furniture, etc. Kind of like Pottery Barn quality. But they are running a 50% off sale on some of the things I had my eye on. I'd try to sew some of them, but I can't find the right fabric or pattern. I am not sure if I'll be buying any of them, but here are some of my favorites!
