Have a good day! X.

Over the holiday I was thinking about you and wondering how you do it. What is your secret? In fact, you inspired me to make a BIG decision (with my husband, of course). We decided to convert our spare room into a craft room & office. Ever since Cristian was born I have been wanting to tap back into my creative side. But, time is a huge factor and so are family dinners. I am BIG on eating together at the table every night, so keeping my craft stuff in the dining room is not an option. I just don't have time to take everything out, work for a few hours, then put it all away again. Having a dedicated space for me to get away for a few minutes during naps will help so much. And, I won't have to clean up in the middle of a masterpiece; I can just close the door on the mess until I get a few minutes later.

Thanks for the inspiration & the great tips, you are so awesome. I can't wait to read your future articles!

That was fantastic, sweets! And I think I may have recently asked you that exact question :) You really are a great example of making time to do what you find fulfilling for yourself and important to your family. You’ll never regret that.

Great job, Jessica! I’m not a scrap booking mom, but I also don’t really scrapbook at all–those tips are pretty applicable to anyone who wants to scrapbook but not spend years of her life doing it. =) I should try it out sometime. =)

Great article. Simple and to the point. I found it helpful even though I don’t have kids (yet, God willing). But does that mean that I still have to do the housework?

Do you use software to print a 3 x 3 photo?

I second that past question in the comments. I want to know how to print my photo little and square. Places print 6×6 and 8×8 and 12×12, but all the big names out there talk of printing them 2×2 and 3×3. I want to know how.

Loved the artical. Nice quick read, easy to follow.
