National Scrapbooking Day with Close To My Heart

CTMH National Scrapbooking Day Event

CTMH National Scrapbooking Day Event

Two days ago I shared Close To My Heart’s announcement that they were going to host an all-day FREE Virtual Craft Day to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day.  Since 1994, National Scrapbooking Day has always been the first Saturday in May–making it May 2nd this year.  For many, going to a traditional all-day crop or other crafting event is out of the question.  From basic social distancing to Shelter-in-Place Orders this just isn’t possible.

DIY Easter Projects for You & Your Kids!

Celebrate Easter Basket

Angle View My Peeps Easter Treat Holder

Today’s inspiration is all about preparing for Easter.  This morning my daughter asked me if we would be doing anything for Easter since we didn’t really do much for St. Patrick’s Day.  (I generally try to decorate our home, even if it’s only a tiny amount, as well as to do or make something a little extra special for that particular holiday to make it more memorable.)  Well, with all that is going on around the world with COVID-19, I admit our St. Patrick’s Day didn’t quite live up to past ones.

Happy World Storytelling Day!

CTMH Storytelling Card Samples

CTMH Story by Stacy Storytelling Cards

Happy World Storytelling Day! Given all that is happening and how quickly things are changing from day-to-day, now is the PERFECT time to scrapbook these moments (if you are a scrapbooker) or simply start a journal if you’re not a scrapbooker. We are making history. These moments that we are experiencing and the things that we are in disbelief about (like the HUGE demand for toilet paper!?) will be what is written in future history books. We are living it. Each of our experiences will be unique but also the same to some extent. While we think we’ll never forget these days, our brains will write over some of the exceptional details that are so fresh right now in order to make room for new memories. Preserve your experience!

St. Patrick’s Day & Social Distancing

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  For most, this particular holiday won’t seem quite the same this year with the new norm of social distancing.  Parades have been cancelled, bars closed and where I live, you basically have to avoid someone if you see them approaching you on the sidewalk!
