It's Official!

I'm a Digitally Endorsed Creative Memories Consultant!  That just means I've learned enough (and taken a test to prove it) to help you with your digital StoryBooks.  So if you want a quick lesson, a one-on-one (or one-on-two, to take the pressure off) class, I'm your gal. 

I'm also happy to create your StoryBook for you.  Contact me through the comments or though my website and I'll let you know how we can start your project.

The important thing is that I want you to hold your StoryBook in your hands! So don't wait to call, summer is coming and everybody will soon be busy with summertime activities.

Snow in May! And a contest!

Well, we just enjoyed a wonderful week in California Gold Country, "a place quite northwards, it seems" (if you don't recognize that quote, leave a comment and I'll enlighten you).  Anyway, we usually visit Gold Country around this time of year and the only thing I don't love is the heat...but this time, it was pleasantly cool, even cold (to us Los Angelenos, one might even say FREEZING.... which  we did say, until Gene and I stopped in Big Trees Calaveras State Park and not only were there little patches of snow on the ground, as we started driving away, REAL SNOWFLAKES were flying around!  So that was quite an adventure.  I will post the pictures of snow flurries through my bug encrusted windshield in a later post.  So that was very exciting.

Almost as exciting as the prospect of going back to Murphys, California, which we hope to do VERY soon...

And perhaps I will start a new blog of adventures in Murphys.  Let's see, is already taken...maybe  That's probably taken already, too.  So if you have some suggestions, leave 'em in the comments.  If your idea wins, I'll send you a free album!

Things that make you smile...

I made a StoryBook called "Cousins."  (If any of my cousins are reading this now it is going to spoil the surprise, but it's also a little test to see if they're reading my blog...) 

Anyway, I really enjoyed making this album, because I promised myself it was only going to be 20 pages, a 7x5, and I was just going to put the pictures together any old way.  Maybe I would combine the same kids on the same page, or maybe not.  I didn't worry about chronological order, or including all the dates, or whether So-and-So would think this photo of her was as cute as I thought it was.  I just put it together.  I don't think I've ever smiled so much when making an album. 

And because it's after midnight and it's been a very long day, I can't figure out how to upload pages so you can see just how cute my "Cousins" album is. 

I will try to accomplish that on a day when I have more brain cells, but in the meantime, if you want to see this album that is sure to make you smile, too, then leave a comment and I'll send you the link.
