Happy December!

It’s hard to believe we’re so close to the end of 2021. I can’t believe it! It’s time to celebrate the holiday season and look back at all the good times and learning experiences of the year.

I’m so thankful for this planning/scrapbooking community. Bring creative is so important to me, and I’m thankful all of you come here and share those feelings!

How cute is this Central Park washi from Simply Gilded?! Love!!! 😍

Welcome Back to my Blog!

As I mentioned in my post from Easter, I am excited to get back into blogging, especially right now when so much is going on in our world. I want to bring a little distraction to all that news and get back into crafting and photographing and sharing it all. Created by Jen Blog

As a little re-introduction, I am Jen, and I have been a scrapbooker since 2006. I joined the online scrapbooking world in 2008, and I was so excited to find others like me who love photos and paper!

I started my decorative planning journey in 2015. Again, what a great community the planning community is as well! That’s what this blog is all about. I hope you enjoy your time here with me!

Happy Easter!!

Hey all!! It’s been a minute since I’ve been here, but I’m glad to be in the mood and to have time again to write! I became so busy and even a little uninspired to write here over the fall and winter seasons. But. now with the events of the world going on right now, I have time to post again and let’s get to it!

I hope you all have a Happy Easter and are able to get some time to de-stress today with whoever you’re safe with at home. I wanted to share a few photos of some of our Easter/spring decor this year.

Happy November!

November Scrapbook LayoutI just love November! Not just because of my birthday, or Thanksgiving, or the beginning of the holiday season, but because it’s a time to slow down in a sense and appreciate the year for what it’s been and where I want to go. I treasure the cooler, shorter days and how mother nature is wrapping up the growing season. Some things end, and some are just beginning.

May the changing seasons be good to you all!heart_jen

Visit my new blog!

It’s LIVE!!

I created a new blog, called With Grace and Feathers, because I’m starting a new chapter of my life, and my blog should reflect that. It’s not “done”, but it’s up & running, and please ignore any bugs. I’ve added several new posts there, so check it out if you would!  😊

I have a new vision for my blog, but don’t worry, I’m leaving this one right here for future inspiration. I’ve been learning to leave my old “baggage” behind, and while blog posts may not be considered baggage to some, it’s best for me to start fresh after 10 years.

I hope you’ll join me in this new adventure and visit often!
