Store is Open for Business!!

Karma & I have a TON of scrappin supplies from previous direct sales businesses we have been involved with. It is currently taking up one of my bedrooms & we desperately need to get some of it out of here! For the last week, I have been a crazy women entering all this inventory into an online shopping cart!

I'm happy to announce our brand new online store is now open for business!!!

--Although we haven't completed the 'policies' and other mumbo jumbo stuff related to an online store, we are opening anyways!
--While you are browsing, you may notice duplicate entries for items. This is because there are 2 of us selling many of the same items. Select either option to add the item to your cart.
--While I have done everything in my power to ensure the quantities of our inventory, there may be a few miscalculations. If something you purchased is not in stock, we will contact you. You can either select a different item or receive a full refund on the item.
--Shipping will not be charged at the time of checkout. Once I pull your order, I will weigh the items & you will be invoiced for the shipping charges via PayPal.
--More product will be added, however, this is 99% of it!
--Extra surprise goodies in every order!
--At this time, we are only accepting payments through PayPal.
--All Sales are Final.

*****Free Shipping on the first 10 orders over $50!! (USA Only - International orders will receive $5 off shipping charges.)*****

Inspiration Notebook

Do you have a handy dandy notebook? (ha, couldn't resist!)

Do you have a notebook where you store ideas you find in magazines or the internet? I'm tired of lots of magazines sitting on my bookshelf, never to be looked at again when the next new one arrives!

So last week, I finally started to fix that issue. I spent some time this weekend & went through 99% of the mags I have & started tearing out the pages that caught my eye.

--Layout Design Ideas
-- # of photos
--Quote Ideas
--Topic/Subject Ideas
--Items I want to purchase!
--Technique Ideas
--Digital How To
--Color Combination Ideas
--Altered or Other Project Ideas
--Organization Ideas

Now I'm going to create a notebook using the above list as dividers within the notebook. So when I'm in need of some inspiration, I can go to one place & flip through the ideas that have already inspired me once.

If I implement the idea, and its going to stay in my own collection of layouts, projects, etc. then it comes out of the notebook & in the trash, because I can now reference the layout/project that I created!

Do you currently do this? Do you sort yours differently? I'd love to hear how others deal with the mountain of magazines they have!!!

I went from this...

to this...

Wahoo! Got me some room for more scrap crap! Now I just have to sort those pages & file them in a binder.

The Story of Jacob Tyler

I finally put Jacob's story in a book! I was inspired last week by the Encyclopedia of my Ordinary Life project and three days, 64 digital pages later, Jacob's book is finished and being uploaded to have it printed and placed into a hardbound photobook as we speak!

It feels so good to have completed this, however, I still have one more to do for Brianna. I'm afraid to know how many pages that book is going to be since she was with us for 3 more months than Jacob was!
