Happy Monday!

Hope your week is off to a good start. It's been a very productive Monday here. Got the kids off to school (always an accomplishment), did dishes, 2 loads of laundry, went for a run, did the past month's accounting for my husband's business, wrote a blog post for and now I'm going to head out to pick the kids off from school. Just a regular, busy day around here. :)

Just wanted to share a few things today. First, I saw this Book of Thanks idea on the eighteen25 blog.
Each year, the family takes a photo of everyone on Thanksgiving and the gives everyone a chance to write something they are thankful for. This is such a simple design that would be so easy to replicate. Perfect way to record the growth of family/friends from year to year.

Today on the Cards Create Blog they are sharing my fall receipt holder that I made with the Scrapbook Circle November Kit.

They contacted me last week and asked if they could share it. So fun! They have a challenge posted asking that you create a fall project. They will feature some of their favorites next week.

I just came across a site that sells large spools of bakers twine (I love that stuff!) The spools have 240 yards of twine, so I'll have to get creative with using it, but I think a spool or two should make it's way to my house soon. Would be perfect for wrapping Christmas gifts or treat bags.

Now I just need to decide which colors to choose. They also do wholesale orders, so I may have to buy some for a Scrapbook Circle kit or two.

Which color would you choose?


  1. I would choose every single one, if my pocket book allowed me to! Congrats on the feature - definitely deserving :).

  2. The red and white for Christmas wrapping for sure! Looks like candy cane swirl... with some brown paper packages? Perfect.

  3. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh I loveeeeeeeee that Thanksgiving idea book! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  4. CONGRATS Lisa on the cards create blog--TOOO coool!

  5. I LOVE bakers twine... at Michaels right now (in the martha stewart baking section) they have a small 6 pack of red, brown, grey, green... ect) that is super cute and less than $10.

  6. Pam, Thanks for the tip on the twine. I'll have to look at Michaels too.
