Today is the last day of school!  Ya-hoo!  I am offically “pool girl” today, dealing with all sort of algae and dead worms in the pool trying to get it open and ready for summer.  I hope to get cleaned up to each lunch with my kids the last day of school, but I’m going to have to put a rush on it!

Wanted to have you check out Christian Paper Crafters Magazine’s Online Forum for free for the next several days!  I expect it to grow a lot after the magazine is published.  Looks like fun.  I’m on the challenge team there and it’s getting me all crafty on my kid’s albums again…yeah!  There are already so many awesome faith-based works and pages in the forum I can’t even tell you.  This is one of my favs I hope to scraplift.

I’m posting some tutorials and layouts there myself and have enjoyed the challenges so far.  I like seeing more how to incorporate the things most important to us in our layouts.

Here’s a layout I posted there yesterday:


I really like that is has some scripture on this particular page…it’s blue because it’s for my big guy’s album…hopefully the blue will make up for some of the Easter elements I thought the page needed, and the smidge of almost invisible ribbon threaded through the bottom!  I was excited to use my Cricut, SCAL, and markers to create the “Easter Sunday” title embellishment.  It was great to create something that matched my page and didn’t take a lot time or have to be stored for use.  Great to have something fresh and easy.

Anyway, head on over and join the forum to see what’s going on while it’s free!

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

Please know that I am not posting as an expert, but as a fellow traveler. I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
