  1. oh how fun Julie! I just finished a journal for my daughter but it doesn't fit the requirments for I sewed my pages together and glued them into a hard cover book...I will start a new one with rings, maybe make it a journal to store my favorite quotes in :)
    I did post my journal I just finished to my blog and utube and linked both to your contest. I can't wait to see what everyone creates!!

  9. Hi Nancy.
    So sorry that you think I would be such a meanie.
    I have had trouble with my blog all day and the linkie is pre-scheduled to close for when I had set it for midnight tonight. It was not supposed to close yet. I will try to fix it right now. Hope you can post your entry.

  10. UUUUUGGHH!!'s just not letting me link up at all! I don't know if it's because I used Smilebox for my Slideshow or what the problem is! I have everything posted and I've tried over and over! It has something to do with the thumbnail! :o(

  11. Okay Julie! That's enough messing up of your blog for me tonight! lol I think I've now figured out some of the issues and I've posted my journal 3 times! That's the charm, right? So sorry for the mess. I think one has a photo...maybe! I hope you can count me in there somewhere at least once! Thanks very much! :o)

  12. Your journal is posted. I just had to approve it. Thanks so much for entering your really cute journal.

I Am American and this is My Country!

I believe in my heart that the anger and revolt that people are voicing in the social media groups, in protest marches, in truly very small ways are simply trying to convey as do I the words that here to follow. Though extremely simple, I believe it is how most of us truly feel.
My heart feels such great sadness and such heaviness to see this country, the place that I have called home for all of my life, turn into a place that I can barely recognize any more. Considering that true, honest, hard working, Americans have sacrificed so very much for the freedoms that we see being taken from us by our own government, no less, on a daily basis. And with each new election of government offices we find ourselves governed by those who work against the further building of this once great, unified nation, but rather they only seek to tear down all that is good, and honorable. Stomping under their own feet the blood, sweat, agonizing tears of loss that help to build this country to the great nat…


I have for so very long, a few years now, wanted to make a doll house album. I have talked about it, drawn out ideas and designs for it, and mulled over it for quite some time. The only other project that took me this long to pull together was my first Recipe Album!! Yesterday, I decided on a design and today a theme! Two elements one absolutely must possess in order to create any thing at all! I was thinking I should like to have my book designed so that I can have interactive paper dolls in it. I thought that I would design them as well, but as I glanced through an old 2009 desk calendar by Mary Engelbreit, I decided I would try to use the many paper dolls I have in the magazines I have collected of hers over the years instead. I think I have found a suitable paper line as a base to start. So! Onward and upward I go in true Mary Engelbreit fashion!!
Wish me luck!
