I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I love Simple Scrapbooks magazine — but I just have to say (especially in regards to the September/October issue which I received yesterday — don’t forget, I get mine a little early) that this magazine is stellar.
We now have Anige Lucas as managing editor and Cathy Zielske art directing and they are just doing an amazing job — and that’s not even the content! Margaret Scarbrough — goodness. I’m lifting your layouts on pages 96 and 109 and Candice Palmar and Tia Bennet (you’ve got to see pg. 102) and Sara McMartin and Tara Pakosta (photo in Focus) and so many more. Rebecca Cooper did Step it Up and the articles are fab too — the one on font techniques (that even I will attempt) and rockin’ home decor projects and my fav — Creative You, so well written by Angie and what fun to be involved in the Between Friends article and seriously, I just think this is such an amazing issue — kudos to my team and all who were in involved — WOW!!
and in other news, check this out. Ashlie, my long-time sitter who is really my wanna-have daughter made me this …
it’s a cool vinyl sticker of my signature! She is helping design a big vinyl quote for the wall of my studio and so she did this to show me how cool and easy they are to use — don’t you just want one?
anyway — guess what my family did this morning? Slept in!!! Yep until 9:00 a.m. — WE NEVER DO THAT — but it was so fun. I really needed it — but now it’s time for a good jog and team clean and Costco and more house-organization.
OH .. but wait, there is one more thing.
Happy Happy Birthday to Hillary !!!!!
I love Hillary — she is married to my super-cool brother Cougar, who by the way just bought Hillary the Memory Dock planner — and this is all a SURPRISE (right Hill?) so, do me a favor and email Hillary and tell her how lucky she is and how deserving she is too!
You’re gonna love it sis!
