My Big News

There's a lot of waiting in the scrapbook industry.  See cool product at CHA, wait before it's actually in stores.  Make an awesome layout for a Design Team, wait to post it until it runs elsewhere.  Accept an exciting new opportunity, wait to tell the world....

I can finally announce that I am the newest Contributing Artist at Ideas for Scrapbookers!  I am really excited about this opportunity and already love working with Pam and the rest of the artists there.  You can read my introductory post here.

Below I've shared my first official post:


Time and Date Dot Com

Have you ever been to timeanddate.com?  It's an extremely handy website if you need to do a time zone conversion, look up sunrise/sunset times, or find out when Daylight Savings Time starts or ends.  It's also incredibly useful in scrapbooking.

Here's how.  Imagine you have an awesome picture of yourself with your child.  You'd like to do a heartfelt layout about how much motherhood has changed you, how your life is so much richer since the day he was born, how you can't imagine life without him.  Simply enter the date of your child's birth and the date the photo was taken into the Date-to-Date Calculator.  It will tell you how many years, months, days, hours, minutes, or seconds have elapsed.  

This layout is about the best 1,795 days of my life.


I encourage all of you to play around with the Date-to-Date Calculator.  There are so many possibilities just waiting to be scrapped!
