Hello, hello! February is coming to an end... so, I believe it's time for a little R and R. And by that, I mean...
That's right! Welcome to the end-of-month newsletter style post, here at The Mailbox.
This is the time and place where I will share what has caught my eye around the web, things I am loving, what I hope to try soon, and more...
Let's jump right in, shall we?
Speaking of Roundups... I have a fun little Recap of Reasons to use Flair up now over at A Flair For Buttons.
I also had the pleasure of joining Noell, Ruth, and Izzy on the Paperclipping Roundtable a couple of days ago. We chatted all about the balance of family time and creative play.
This is indeed a topic I love talking about. In fact, I did a little series on this subject last fall, Fitting It All In. If you haven't read that, please take a look! And, please be sure to have a listen to the show!
There is always so much fabulous inspiration all over the blogosphere and such! I try my best to peruse my favorites on a regular basis and here is what I found most notable this month:
Leann's work is always inspiring and this layout is no exception. What I love most about it is how she manages to incorporate a grid design of two kinds as well as plenty of mixed media goodness. And, somehow, the focus is still on the photos. Fabulous!
Julie Fei-Fan Balzer recently shared a post of 48 hours in her world. I absolutely love the way she presented this and what's even better is that she linked back to a similar post she did two years prior. This is such a fabulous way to gain perspective on time and the different twists and turns one's life can take. Very inspiring. Plus, if you are anything like me... you will be jealous of how late she sleeps in :)
Can't get enough of them....
Seriously. I ordered some of the new American Crafts die sets that were just released... I can't stop playing with them! Not to mention some of the Simon Says Stamp exclusives that have recently found a home in my studio. There are so many possibilities!
And while we are talking about videos, I have forged ahead with my idea to do a series on Trends and will be sharing more on that soon.
Oh yeah - and then there is the little detail of another person soon to come in soapHOUSE. It's very possible that the next time we have a Roundup and Recap post, I will officially be a mother of four little ladies! Let's hope so anyway... I am usually late and really like that my due date is in March. But, the wee one might have her sights set on April. We shall see...
Thanks for stopping by and I will see you soon!
