Okay, so I'm not the most faithful blogger (something I am working on!), but I do love to return to my favorites over and over. I've had a love affair going on with Google Reader for quite some time, but, alas, they announced earlier this year that they will be discontinuing their reader service effective July 1.

So after a mourning period, I began searching for an alternative way to collect and keep my favorites all in one place. I tried a couple, only to find that they were linked to Google Reader, and would not work once it disappeared. So back to Square One. Then the other day, I happened across one of my NEW favorite blogs, Scrap Our Stash, and noticed that there on the right was a little link saying "Follow my blog with Bloglovin." Curious, I clicked through, and found (to my delight) a NEW way to follow all my blogs WITHOUT having to rebuild my list again from scratch or import each one, one at a time. Yes, Bloglovin even does the heavy lifting of importation for you! Hallelujah!

So, if you love your blogs like I do, consider setting up an account with Bloglovin. It's free, easy, and fun! (Oh, and if you're migrating over from Reader and need help figuring out how, just leave me a comment or shoot me an email - I'd be glad to help you out!)

P.S. Notice I now I have MY OWN little button that says "Follow my blog with Bloglovin!" Go ahead, click. It won't hurt a bit! :)

Fancy Pants and Flickr

At long last I got the chance to scrap with two of my good friends, and we had a blast catching up and creating pages. While I wasn't a productive as the gal who got 10 pages done that day, I did get down a story I've been wanting to tell, and I am super happy with that. Here are my pages:

My Best Friend the Novelist: *Inspired by June PageMaps Fancy Pants Hopscotch papers, Amy Tangerine Delights paper flowers, washi tape from Michael's, American Crafts Thickers
Setting is Everything: Fancy Pants Hopscotch papers and alphas, Amy Tangerine Delights paper flower, Bitty Bag from Endless Inkabilities (Etsy store), Lily Bee Bag of Bits diecuts, American Crafts Thickers, bits and pieces from past MemoryWorks Express kits

In other news, while I've got a little free time (yay summer!), I've decided to collect all my "kreations" into one spot. So if you're ever of a mind, you can stop by my new Flickr photostream and see for yourself how my scrapbooking and cardmaking has evolved over time. It is in fact, still in progress, as the site won't let you upload more than 200 photos at a time - yikes!  I'll be back later in the week to showcase a few of my personal faves. And if you're on Flickr, I'd love to see your photos - leave me a comment or drop me an email at

Till next time!
