This Day…

This is my new scrap table I found for $20 last week.  Everytime I sit down at it, I can’t help but have the thought, “Man!  God sure loves me!”  I’m 34 years old, and He still understands my addiction to ink pens and markers and stamps like no other.

This page was created using mostly items from Becky Higgin’s School Years Kit of the Month.  As you all know, I’m totally in love with this kit.  It got me orderly, organized, and going.  It has 12X12 pockets for “stuff” you want to keep, and it just makes it fun to get all their handwriting and school memories recorded. There are LOTS of journaling prompts to help you remember little things you might not otherwise remember to write down, like “transportation”.

The journaling and little star stamp (tabs) were from other stamp sets.  The round “facts” buttons were from my stash.

LOVE the big sticker letters that match the paper.

Okay, so I got Red’s layouts down that I always do around the kids birthdays.  His was in June.  Hopefully, I can get one year done for each of the other two before school starts, but I doubt it.  I look for photos and print one week.  Organize and cut one week, think about layouts a few days, and then glue and journal a couple days.  But, now I can keep it floating without having to clean it every time the kids wind up on the guest bed!  See the cool lamp?  I got it consignment a few days ago.  It has high and low clicks, so I can work even if they are sleeping in there…if I’m quiet!  I got all the wooden boxes consignment as well.  I bought a very old cookie sheet yesterday to use as a magnetic board, but I’m still working on the walls and storage for the room to make it cozy again around the table.

    I’ll have to post a picture of my scrapbook area when I get it in order. After the inspiration of your laundry room yesterday, I bit the bullet and started cleaning out mine today.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
