Jillibean News!

Have you stopped by the Jillibean Blog lately? August has been a busy, busy month and September has even more to come!

First up - Jill and Kimber are looking for new Design Team Members! Great products+great people=FUN!

The next big thing...Jillbean shapes in the SILHOUETTE Store! Oh yeah! Jill and I have been adding new shapes to the store and have lots more planned!

One more cool thing...a NEW website! Compliments of our very talented (and Design Team Member) Teka Cochonneau. She did a fantastic job. I couldn't be more happy with how she blended Jill's vision, my patterns and her great eye for graphics and icons.


New Products at TwoPeas!

Do you PL??? I am obsessed with Project Life and I don't even participate! I got the bug too late in the year to start. I'm not sure I could ever really keep up with a weekly project like this but I admire the talented ladies out there that do. I have a ton of people who PL on my blog list and I love looking at their pages. My plan is to start using more of the "Project Life" idea in my scrapbooks. I think it will really help for those events that don't really need an entire page but still need to be included in the story. I am also planning a PL style of documenting my son's Senior year that starts on Monday! I want to remember and document as much as I can though his last year of school. I may not do a spread each and every week, but will use the divided pages to add as much as I think is relevant. I bought almost every divider Becky has out and can't wait to start using them.

I am super energized to start his album and a few more projects I have been planning. Now that the kids will be back in school, I should have more time to create and share more on the blog. I scrapbooked some new cards and pages this past weekend for Jillibean that will be revealed later this month. I have been busy creating artwork for my new website to launch sometime in the next month. And I have a couple of great surprises coming this fall. Lots to be excited about as the season changes.

Forgot to mention that I also released 3 new products at TwoPeas last week! Hope you like!

Random things to Share!

August. Ah. The first time all summer I have had time to catch my breath. Keeping busy but taking time to think and do things that were pushed aside during the busy months.

Mentally preparing my myself that this handsome young man is now a Senior and will be leaving me in less than a year. Picking out clothes for his Senior photos, getting ready to apply to colleges, trying to enjoy every second with him that I can.

Finally finishing Cooper's bedroom that was painted in the Spring. He needed one more piece of art for his room and we could not find anything we liked. My friend Trish found some great inspiration online - so I made this myself!

Spending time with my pal Shelly before she has to go back to school in 2 weeks. We went to Summer Market in Avon Lake two weeks ago and saw this adorable camper. I would have bought it if it were for sale! This Saturday we are headed out to Jamie's Flea Market in South Amherst for some thrifting!

Remembering CHA and that I still need to thank Rachel Carlson for this lovely coffee holder.

And Jill Yegerlehner for this wonderful gift bag. (She always spoils our team and has goodies for us each and every time we travel with her! - Nice boss huh!!!)

New nerd glasses, chosen by Cooper. Every time I look at him in his new specs, I smile.

Bought this treat for myself in July and realized that I will only ever buy Urban Decay Eye Shadow for the rest of my life.

And this little guy - the one with the glasses. Cracking me up all summer. Wearing only his undies around the house. Loving ACDC (cool) and obsessed with WWE Wrestling (not cool lol).
