Gravity

I had seen these two birds fly into my little yard today. I was drawn to how close they were to each other. It was not only a proximation, but an unspoken connection. I had to take a picture of them and scrap about it, of course. It also reminded me of the two little souls we've lost in the last couple of years. I imagined that it was the two of them who came back to visit me. In that moment, I felt blessed.

Here are the entire words to this beautiful song...
Gravity by Sara Bareilles


Something always brings me back to you.

It never takes too long.

No matter what I say or do I’ll still feel you here ’til the moment I’m gone.


You hold me without touch.

You keep me without chains.

I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love and not feel your rain.


[CHORUS]

Set me free, leave me be. I don’t want to fall another moment into your gravity.

Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I’m supposed to be.

But you’re on to me and all over me.


You loved me ’cause I’m fragile.

When I thought that I was strong.

But you touch me for a little while and all my fragile strength is gone.

[CHORUS]

Set me free, leave me be. I don’t want to fall another moment into your gravity.

Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I’m supposed to be.

But you’re on to me and all over me.


I live here on my knees as I try to make you see that you’re everything I think I need here on the ground.

But you’re neither friend nor foe though I can’t seem to let you go.

The one thing that I still know is that you’re keeping me down


Your keeping me down,

Your on to me, your on to me and all over

Something always brings me back to you

It never takes to long…

Sneak Peeks of my Renegade Fair Excursion

I went to San Francisco over the weekend to check out the Renegade Fair. Here are some teasers of all the cool things I took pictures of while at the fair. The stuff they had there was amazing. It felt like I was walking through the halls of Etsy in person. It was AWESOME!!!




Here is my little monster holding the bini monster named Belvadiere, which i bought for him at the fair. He LOVES it!

I've been crafty

Here are some pics of hair clips I've made.
I threw in the wine for affect. Yes, that's my glass and I'm proud of it :)

Fun owls I made for the bathroom decor. I love it!!
I made one for each one of us in the family. I used Kenner Road for the yellow paper and brown alphas. The light blue paper is American crafts. The owls are photoshop brushes. Not my own but they were a freebie. Hope you like it!

Designs Designs and more Designs

Hey My Few Fellow Readers. It's been awhile since I posted something. Today my family and I decided to play at a "park" and capture some great shots of our adorable 3 year old. Here are some pictures from our "session" taken with our fancy camera (Canon 40D). Overlays were purchased from We are Storytellers.com.


I also recently did so one layout (woohoo) created with the Scrapbookgraphics site collab Impressions of Travel.

I'm working on the Scrapmatters newsletter, as usual, this time of the month. But more importantly, I've been working on my own designs. I made some digital thank you cards that I'm hoping my friend will like and I am working on an alpha pack to giveaway. I've also got tons of projects in the works, so I hope to post final pictures here. Did I mention how obsessed I am with Kenner Road? Their stuff is totally adorable and I love the goodies I get from them. I recently made some items which I need to take pictures of so I can post them. Stay tuned!
