Just a friendly reminder that I will be doing free make n’ takes at B&B Scrapbooks in Powell tomorrow.  We will offer 3 different cards to make with some fun punches and new JB Soup goodies!  I’ll be there from 12-3pm.   I know the big game is tomorrow at 12:00 but do you really want to watch it? 😉   If you’re one of the few NOT watching it, then stop by.  We will also be giving away some new journaling sprouts and bean seeds (felt pieces).  Alecia will have a jellybean jar giveaway too! 


To those of you looking for product on the website…we’re working on it!  We’re working on loading all of the other JB Soup goodies along with the “about us” page, “recipes” page and the wholesale log-in.


Thank you Netty and the Columbus Scrappers for hosting a “chat” last night.  I enjoyed talking to you all and appreciate your support!  Look for Netty Soup soon! 😉


All the giveaway sprouts are in the mail!  Check your mailboxes!  If you don’t receive your sprouts, please e-mail me at


Have a great weekend everyone!

The photo does not do this layout justice…  Here’s a layout using the white Cream of Mush line.  I love the birds.  I love green and brown together!  You can also see some fun JB Soup ribbons and twill.  Someone from the Columbus Scrappers (was that Melissa?) was asking about twill last night and I didn’t even think about my twill ribbons.  The black and white photo just pops off the page.  I added a pink JB Soup Bean Seed (felt flower) as just a hint of color. 

Other products used: brown flocked letters, Making Memories ; brown cardstock letters, Doodlebug

Thanks for looking!



Happy Birthday Pappy!!!

Today is my Dad’s birthday.  My Dad is not fond of the camera so I don’t have any great shots of him (kind of like my bro).  I won’t share his age either. ;-}  He’s the youngest son of 7 children (5 boys, 2 girls),  served in the army at Vietnam and has worked very hard as a mason for most of his life. 

Happy Birthday Dad!  Have a great day!

Love ya!

Got some good stuff to share.  I apologize for the lighting in the photos.



Here’s a very cool “Fall” layout from Emily (Emily works at Scrapbook Groupies in Gahanna and is the sweetest!).  She used the Cream of Mush collection to create that very cool tree.  Love the 3-D leaves too!  Thanks Emily!


Here’s another cute fall page from Kathy.  Kathy used the Spicy Pumpkin collection as well as some JB Soup Bean Seeds (felt pieces).  The girls in the pic are my 2 sweet nieces.  Thanks Kathy!


Suzie created a cute baseball page using the Cold Raspberry line.  The circles work great with the baseball theme.  Thanks Suzie!



“Many Thanks” card from Tracy.  Love that Cream of Mush line!  Tracy used the Half & Half (birds) paper on the inside as well.  Great design!  Cute card Tracy!!



A “Pumpkin Patch” layout from Jamie.  She used the white Cream of Mush line.  Look at that adorable owl!  She cut him out by hand – cute, cute!!  Thanks Jamie! 

More to share soon!

Thanks ladies!  It’s exciting for me to see my paper in action!



I’m excited to announce…

Kami, Brooke and I had a “normal” trip to Target today.  If you’ve never read about our Target trips, read this and this.   Today was a good day at Target – nothing crazy.  We were shopping and the cart was starting to get full so Kami had to get out of the cart and walk.  She was thrilled with this.  She did, however, want to help push Brooke in the cart.  This was not going so well and she kept stopping and giving me “the look”.  She was mad because her feet barely touch the ground while trying to push the top bar so she had to let go several times.  Anyhow, like I said, she kept giving me the pouty look.  I said you her “why are you being such a crab-ass today” (this just came out, I do not talk to my kids this way, I really don’t know where it came from).  Her response was…“I not crab-ass, I Kami”.   I just laughed out loud in the store.  Oh, what a horrible mother!
