a bag of balloons


i told my husband tonight to go buy a bag of balloons.

it's 11:30pm.

there are no birthday's to celebrate.

there are no parties to plan for.

i just want my kids to know how much we love them.

they love balloons.

i wanted them to wake up with balloons in their room.

we'll do that later this week {hence the last minute request given to Pat}


he then proceeded to write all these notes


and placed them

in the direct path

that they will go when they wake up in the morning.


i can't wait for them to wake up ?

do simple things for your kids...

that's all they really want. isn't it?

we ? your scrapbook supply


look at those smiles!

that's how I feel every time we see them at CHA or knowing that they have called.

Your Scrapbook Supply has been a WONDERFUL & loyal online customer of ours for a long time.

i looked up when they placed their FIRST order with us...

April 11, 2007

Isn't that awesome?

When I asked them if they would like to be spotlighted this week, they sent me these pictures & said that they hang our products where they can see them & that they didn't do that with many others & that most of their products are in crates ready to ship {remember, they're an online company}...again, pretty awesome, huh?


they have all the new & current and some of the oldies but goodies {shown in her sweet decor project below}


so make sure you stop by & fill your cart on their website {they offer FREE shipping over $50}!

Thanks Your Scrapbook Supply for allowing us to earn your business year after year. And when we asked you what your TOP 3 reasons for working with Webster you answered:

1. The collections are absolutely beautiful, every release is amazing. Love them all.

2. My customers love you!

3. You are family run & so is my business. But mostly it's because your family has been very nice to me throughout the years. Shauna knows me by name when I call, Shauna Rocks!!!

You are so special to us. Thank you Rhonda for your reasons in working with us. We think you're pretty great too. You can all check out Your Scrapbook Supply online HERE or visit their blog for product sneaks & updates.

Thanks to Rhonda & team for all the years of support, loyalty & friendship.

they have staff that live in the United States that travels to Japan several times a year to teach classes to their retailers.

With their magazine still running strong, they are able to not only to support the retailers, but the consumers as well.

Jolanda is one of the thousands of remarkable crafters at InspireME.

i love her style & I think you'd agree {Jolanda's Gallery}

Did you know that we select a project of the week & display it as our InspireME banner?

This layout was chosen as last week's choice & I think the reason is obvious.

it inspire's ME. it inspires everyone at Webster.

Jolanda is one of the reasons I design.

When I see people's most precious lives surrounds with our designs, I think, "Yep...this is why I love what I do." I'm privileged to design for you.

So thank you for continuing to post your projects in InspireME's gallery. Your project may be selected as next week's banner!

freebie friday . fabric tickets!

DOW_F Laura1


i ? fabric tickets

beautiful Laura created this stunning suitcase project for a class she's doing in San Diego in a gorgeous store named Paper Tales. {great customer, btw} I have seen the fabric tickets used on so many of the DT projects...they are a quick, easy & pretty way of giving a quick title or expression to your project.

this product makes me chuckle though... Terri had suggested that I do them last release & I asked her what seemed like 1000 times before starting, "should I REALLY do these"..."are you SURE I should start them"..."thinking ok...what are people REALLY going to use them for?"...

you see, I had already designed over 300 designs.

i was done. spent. wiped out exhausted from designing.

and then I started designing these.

it took only ONE day.

i LOVED them once I started.

Terri rolled her eyes at me & laughed ?

the fabric tickets are one of my very favorite products.


would you like some?

today is FREEBIE FRIDAY and I will be giving away of free pack of Country Estate Fabric Tickets. Leave me a comment with what you would use them for & I'll choose a random winner on Monday!

we're almost already sold out of them ~ let's just say, I won't whine next time I design them {hehe} ~

have a beautiful & restful weekend!

it's all about you . Tomoko


she's beautiful. she's thoughtful. she's giving. she's incredibly talented. she's on our 2011 DT! {I'm lucky}

Tomoko Takahashi is very special. If you look through her InspireME Gallery or her Blog, you'll see that she is a very kind, giving person. The Irene project above was made for her beautiful friend. All of the cards below are Birthday Cards made for girls on our DT (Emma, Mitsue, Steph, Stacey & Iris). I can't wait for my birthday to come! :o) {xo} She creates beautiful things for the beautiful people in her life.


Tomoko also made us all worried this past week with the devastation in Japan. Thankfully, we heard from her right away letting us know that she & her family were safe but the tragedy hit her neighbors & friends hard, as we all know. With her kind & giving heart, she is organizing donating money through crafting to the Japan Red Cross Society. Please read Tomoko's Blog for information on how you can give.

Thank you for being the beautiful person you are & thank you for making this Thursday all about you, Tomoko. We are lucky to have you as our pure inspiration.

an unexpected friendship ?



my wonderful friend ~ Terri Hayes ~


she's a mother & wife & she adores her precious, sweet Goldendoodle Phoenix. {she adores her family too. HA!}


she's a great scrapbooker.

she helps BUILD the Webster's Pages brand & helps design your favorite Webster's products.

it started 4 years ago & is still going...

Did you know that?

i have a story

4 years ago we received an order from a new consumer.

it happened to be Terri.

she called our toll free number & found out that our warehouse was miles from her home.

she suggested that she come in to pick up her order rather than us "going through the trouble" of packaging her order up & sending it to her.

it would never have been a problem for us but in Terri style, she wanted to make it easier for us.

she came in.

I wanted to thank her for the order & say hello & introduced myself to her.

and that's where our unexpected friendship started.

my admiration for her started in her expertise in the industry & her beautiful style of scrapping.

it then grew to her trust in us & our trust in her to design all embellishments for Webster's Pages & to create what I believe to be one of the best DT programs, alumni & members in the industry.

now Webster's Pages & I {personally} are lucky to be working with her weekly to continue to grow the Webster's Pages brand.

today I look at my relationship with her & have realized that she has brought me personally so much more than industry insight & design. She is a unique, intelligent, honest, selfless, beautiful person that never boasts & has taught me how to balance my life more effective than I ever had before. She may not even know that but I want to Thank Her from the very bottom of my heart for being my real & honest friend. Thanks Terri ?

imagine captured my heart this weekend while browsing through InspireME {by beautiful Joanne Bain}

for a few reasons.

it's raw & captured beauty

the look of thought on Joanne's daughter's beautiful face

and the humbling way it makes me feel as I reflect on the fortunate life that we all live in reflection of the devastation in Japan.

i can't imagine what our friends across the globe are going through.

but i know that our Japanese friends are strong, united & will get through challenge.

i can ONLY imagine that our friends will come back stronger than ever before.

This is my Monday's Message. a message to our beautiful friends thousands of miles away that your InspireME/Webster's Pages friends will always support you, just as you have always supported us.

1. Paper Designs to take your breath away - and double sided too

I adore our traditional customers & I adore our digi customers. I am so glad you're both willing to try both sides of scrapping too.

Actually feeling very nervous & excited at the same time...

The emails start coming in with GREAT ENTHUSIASM, especially from me!

It felt like Christmas morning to me to receive the "YES! I accept!" emails from the newly forming team.

Nothing from Emma.

We received big Yes's from 15 of the 16 DT invitees, but no Emma response.

I let everyone know on Facebook & InspireME that all emails have been sent. Still no Emma.

I start to stalk her on and 2peas to think maybe she's not online on this day..."maybe she's on vacation", oh no..."maybe she's sick!"...but then I see her thank someone for complimenting one of her layouts...I start to think I'm borderline stalking her...haha

I go to sleep.

I wake up.

No email from Emma.

I call her.

No answer.

I wrote her again.

No response.


then..........I look at the email address that I have been sending her invitation to the 2011 WP Design Team to.


then sweet Emma finally got my email & when I sent it to the correct address & IT WAS THE RESPONSE I WAS HOPING FOR!

She's on the TEAM! YEA!!!!!

So Emma, I am dedicating our first "All About You Thursday" to YOU! We are so lucky you accepted & our Webster's Pages fans are lucky to have such stunning inspiration from you. Your layouts are beautifully unique & unexpected and I love that your signature is off the 12x12 size. Yes...unique & beautiful, like you~

inside webster . my typical day


early morning workout.


a very fast shower.

shower 3 kids.

feed them..something.ANYTHING. {always a surprise what we can find}

pack up school bags.


get in car.

forgot something. go back in house.

get in car.

{repeat} forget something. go back in house.

drive them to school.

drop them off. say hi & talk to drop off parents. leave school.

wait for 3 hours until pick up time.

ahhhh...and here's where I'll pause...this is peace time, coffee time, contemplating buying starbucks stock & beginning designing...

Workspace home office is where I do most of my designing.

i have clippings all over the place on what inspires me.

if you were in my space, you would see

home & garden magazine clippings

the inspireME site up

& a lot of natural light.

you would also see the other half of the room dedicated to the kids.

they need to stay creative too


{Cali likes to rearrange furniture like her mommy but in her bathing suit?...that is NOT like her mommy.HA!}

& let's finish off the day...

pick them up.

hug. kiss. hug. kiss.

{repeat above}

bring them home.

resume designing until I drop.

sleep. eat. feed family {not necessarily in that order}

start a new day.

and what a great day it is.
