Yay … it’s MONDAY.

I don't always feel this way, but today I do.

I've got a list a mile long, but I'm making progress and that is a GREAT feeling. We had a wonderful weekend. Not very relaxing, but good none-the-less.

Highlights include …

  •  A drive to the top of Mt. Spokane, where we found a great little hike.
  • IMG_0143 IMG_0147
  • Going to church (I LOVE church) yesterday was especially good. I love hearing faith-promoting experiences and talking about the gospel of Jesus Christ. It just makes me happy and I come away feeling refreshed and ready for a new week.
  • Making a rhubarb pie (with rhubarb from my backyard)

  • NOTE: Please don't get any grandiose ideas about my garden this year. We are still very much learning the ropes …

  • Here is our most impressive pea harvest to date. We probably spent about $20 on tomato plants and haven't even seen so much as a green one. I'm eager to blame this on the soil — as I can't imagine there is anything lacking in the gardener (??)
  • Making this cute little mini-book I made yesterday.

You only get a sneak peek, because it's for an upcoming project with Ella.

Speaking on mini albums. Sara Winnick is hosting the blog at Write.Click.Scrapbook and she is talking all about mini albums. I just really enjoy Sara's work. The NEW August gallery is up too, which is always good for browsing.

I loved making my August page, because it came together so quickly, and because it brought back wonderful memories of our Daycation, last August. TIME FLIES.

BIG News on the BPS front is that the details of Ali's long awaited 4Experts class is up.
READ all about it, right here.

OK, back to my list and off to Costco.
I'll post KIT winners later tonight!



  2. Speaking of mini albums… I have been trying endlessly to find a copy of “Quick and Easy Photo Albums” it was a simple scrapbooks special publication I think in 2008. If anyone has any ideas about how I may get one please let me know…. I’m just about all out. Thanks ;o)

  3. cute mini — hey — is that one of those cute little albums from Target? I picked up one shortly after you blogged about it awhile back and made the cutes little book that I can throw in my purse.

  4. LOVE the mini album, can’t wait to see what’s in store at Ella! And…can’t wait for tomorrow at BPS! :) I always love your “take August off” promotion. Have a happy day!

  5. We have a tomato plant that is growing like crazy it’s probably 6 feet tall but no tomatoes :( have no idea what’s going on but glad we’re not the only ones having trouble!

  6. Yes Heather it is. I bought this years ago. I would LOVE to see a picture of the mini you made. Can you send me a link or a photo?
    pretty please?

  7. Hey Carrie,
    I’m crossing my fingers that with the new owners at CK, we’ll have greater access to our CK and SS favorites.
    There are so many that are still in demand!!
