I saw a beautiful photo of little toy sailboats for sale on a river bank in a foreign country while browsing Pinterest. I pinned it because I thought someday I would need or want to make little toy boats and thought I could use this picture as a jumping-off point. And now I have! This picture inspired me to make little Valentine sailboats for my daughter’s preschool friends.
There will be no store-bought Valentines in my girl’s backpacks come February 14! But with that said—I can’t get carried away! I always need to find quick and easy ways to make spectacular things. That is why a kit can be so helpful! I adore the little Sweetheart Treat Bag kit and wanted to use it for my little boats.

Home decor is one of my favorite ways to use My Digital Studio! When I saw this cluster frame my head started spinning with ideas for a fun piece that could be use for Valentine's Day and after by simply changing out the frame on the right with a picture! Just another reason for a photo shoot. :)
I am so excited that it’s 2014 and we can finally share projects using new Stampin’ Up! products. It’s so fun to use new stamps and accessories. It reignites my creativity.
Ever since my kids became old enough to reason with and take some responsibility for their daily needs, I've been a big fan of schedules and orderly systems. In fact, I am such a fan of the orderly system, that I've racked up quite a collection of them in the past several years. I have populated many a Word document with cute clip art, laminated so many charts and signs it would make your head spin, and introduced my girls to such a variety of "ways things need to be done" you would think that running out the door to school five minutes late with one shoe on and half a pigtail in place would be a thing of the past.

When I got an e-mail asking if I would like to be a guest blogger for My Digital Studio, I was THRILLED! I love My Digital Studio, and I use it all the time! I said yes right away! This was on November 18. I needed to send my blog post by December 30--not a problem! I tried a few times to work on them during all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, but it was hard. I wanted something big and spectacular, a new twist on a technique. Then I remembered one of the best things about MDS: the simplicity of it! It is so easy to use and to get great results. There are always great new items in the weekly downloads and the Stampin’ Up! colors are so easy to mix and match.
