It's All About East Coast Life!

This year is going by crazy fast! I can't believe it's May 1st already and time to release the Buffet kits! I was born and raised on the east coast of Canada - I'm what you call a Maritime Girl! I love being near the ocean, the coast, waterfront etc... I've lived all over, but this is where I'm home. I was fortunate enough to move back to Nova Scotia in September 2015 - and for now, this is where I'm staying!
I loved working with this month's palette, although when I first looked at it, I thought it would be a challenge! I decided to go with an east coast theme and lean it towards a vintage feel. I love the way it turned out! Now...to find time to scrap!

You can pick up East Coast Life kit, Woodsy Papers (with cardstock) and Journal Cards at 50% through May 5th, 2016 as part of the mix n' match Buffet at GingerScraps!

I am in love with this kit - and especially what my amazing Creative Team has done with it! The girls are from all over and each of them were able to use the kit in their own way!

Do You Have What It Takes? CT Call 2016

Is it spring yet? I can't wait for the chilly wind to be replaced with more sunny days. I love getting outside to the waterfront or just walking around town more. I live in such a cute little town and it makes me feel happy to get out and about. I usually get stopped by someone I know to chat, and that's just nice! But that seems to happen to me where ever I go, even in the middle of Tokyo, I could run into someone I knew!
Today, I'm having a little mini creative retreat in the library. Yes, I have a whole office set up at my apartment, but I thought a little change of scenery would helpful get some creative juices flowing and help productivity! So I grabbed my essentials (laptop, Ban.do planner, notebook, Tupperware water bottle, and chai tea) and have been hiding out in the reference room for the last 3 hours!

BTW, here's a peek at the way my home office usually looks - minus Mr. Big Cat who is usually sprawled across whatever desk space he can find! Did you know, I'm also a Tupperware Consultant and Younique Presenter? I run my blogs and businesses from home and work part time in retail! I'm in the progress of starting a BRAND NEW blog, if any of you would like a bit more of sneak peek into my life: http://www.simplegirldesignsherownadventure.blogspot.ca/ If you'd like to just stick with the digi, no problem! You're in the right place!

Now, back to today's productivity! I'm working on a bunch of stuff for {inter}National Scrapbooking Day week which is May 6th-12th in case anyone is wondering! and.... *drumroll please*.... a Creative Team call! Have you ever wanted to work with me? I'm looking for the right people for my team - whether you're a layout artist, social media guru, blogger OR you'd like to work in any of those areas and learn the biz! I'm into coaching! If you're the right person for the job - we'll make it happen!
I'm very close to my team, most of them have been with me for YEARS... I've known some of these awesome ladies even before I started scrapbooking digitally... yes. Back when I was a paper gal! So, if you're interested in applying - shoot me an email with the important info!

Don't Forget to Love Yourself - New Kit!

Hello digi friends! This month I have a new kit for you called Love Yourself! We spend the holidays trying not to pig out on the delicious holiday treats, then feeling guilty because - face it, we look forward to those special treats all year long! Then we spend January making resolutions and goals to change our bodies, lose weight, eat better etc... I created this kit as a reminder to love yourself in the process. Love yourself as the beautiful person you are - right now.

Hug Them Tight Collaboration Kit

Hello! I'm sorry it's been such a long time since I've blogged. December/January has been a truly crazy time for myself and family. We lost my dad just before Christmas - he had been unhealthy and hurting for a long time, but I don't think that made our loss any easier. January was to be my Designer Spotlight month at GingerScraps, but with everything going on I didn't have the mojo/drive to be creative. I owe a HUGE thank you and lots of love to my beautiful designer friends who created a gorgeous kit for me in memory of my dad called Hug Them Tight. It's a gorgeous kit to scrap all those precious family moments. I am so thankful for my friends and family who love me.

I've finally been able to scrap with this beautiful kit. Not because I've been too busy, but because this is hard for me. I don't have many photos of my dad - he hated the camera, flashes hurt his eyes - but the year I came home from living overseas I made sure to capture a few images of my dad. My dad loved our family pug, she was his little buddy.
