  1. I really loved this episode. (Well, I love them all) The trouble is, I listen while I am at work and can't run right out to Hobby Lobby. I did however go there this morning with tons of inspiration from your show. I bought a little paper mache house that I plan to cover with patterned paper and some jewelry making supplies. Love, love your podcast. Thank You!

  3. Hello Ladies! I found your podcast a few weeks ago and have had your voices in my ears ever since. :) I want you to know how inspiring you are. I have been scrapping since I got married back in 1997. I helped to start a scrapbook club that quickly grew to 75 members. Scrapbooking was definitely a social think for me; I met some of my best friends through scrapbooking. When my daughter was 2, in 2007, I switched to digital. This was about the same time our scrapbook club folded. I have not created anything with paper in 7 years...that is until about a week ago. After listening to the episode about December Daily, I went to town and bought the supplies needed to document our December. Guess what? I love paper! I still love all my digi supplies but there is something about creating with your hands. I just wanted you gals to know it's all because of you that I am feeling the passion again for this wonderful hobby. Thank you! Oh and if you can tell me where I can buy some October Afternoon, I will be eternally grateful. :)

  5. Thank you for all the info on where to by October Afternoon! It's a little overwhelming after being out of the loop for so long but so much fun. Thanks again and keep the inspiration and funny stories coming. I just listened to the episode where Tiffany is talking about getting caught on her back porch taking selfies. That's funny stuff!

    1. Yeah, yeah, I'm always doing something goofy and getting caught in the act. It must be part of my charm or something. Lol! I'm kidding. So glad to hear that you're enjoying listening and jumping on the OA train. :)

  6. I loved this podcast. I do not do any Christmas crafting other scrapping about the holiday. Christmas is so busy and my two boys have birthdays in December. I think I will add to my October to do list for next year. Great ideas and so inspiring. I love your podcast. It makes my ride to work shorter.

    1. It sounds like your plate is pretty full for the holidays! I always plan more projects than I can actually accomplish, so we'll see what I actually manage to get done. Stay tuned! I'm glad you're enjoying listening; it makes my day to hear that. :)

  7. The monogramming addiction has spread to the Midwest. I have been collecting all things "J" for a few years--I have visions of various "t", "k", & "j"'s over our headboard in our forever home. but for now "J"s are on our photo wall. I wondered where 'it came from' now I know, its a Southern thing.
