I made this frame as a gift for my boss, Michele. I am her son’s nanny and because she does so much for me I wanted to make sure that I gave her a very special Christmas gift. This frame took me less than an hour to make and I made it out of things I just happened to have scattered around my scrap space. I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Why I Love the MDPLS Reason # 3:

July 22, 2009

If you didn’t already know, I am proud to tell you that I am completely obsessed with the Miami Dade Public Library System. Not only can I check out all of my favorite books and movies for free I can also use their wireless internet for free (reasons 1 and 2 of why I love the mdpls), but just when I thought the library couldn’t get any better I found out that they have an Adult Scrapbooking Club that is also, yet again, free! 

Once a month anyone from the community who is interested in coming to a free crop and idea share can sign up to join fellow scrappers at any participating Miami-Dade library. I consider it a blessing from God that I just happened to scan their schedule of events about two weeks ago and signed up both myself and my husband for this fantabulous scrap adventure! 

Not only did I finally get some quality scrap time, I also shared some great ideas with fellow scrappers and received a bunch of neat ideas in return. To say that I had a great time would be an understatement. I am so glad that I had a chance to attend the club, but am devastated that it was my first and last time, considering that we make our big move to North Carolina in just 10 days

Thankfully my husband took a few pictures so that I can remember this very special day. Good luck ladies with all of your scrap endeavors! 

For more information on events in a Miami-Dade Public Library near you check out their events page to find more Adult Scrapbooking Clubs, as well as many more free events and programs offered to children, teens, and adults.

Oh come all ye faithful…

Just when I thought scrapbooking could not get anymore exciting, I found out about something called faithbooking.

Faithbooking is a way for you to document your faith journey throughout the years by creating albums, layouts, verse cards and more focusing on the ways that God has moved in your life.

The Bible tells us in Deuteronomy 4:9: “Be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen, or let them slip from your heart as long as you live.”

And Psalm 77:11 says, “I will remember the works of the Lord; Surely I will remember Your wonders…”

As Christians, it is imperative that we keep a record of all the moments where we have seen God’s fingerprint in our lives. I personally find it helpful to keep these memories written in a journal or typed in a MS Word document to refer to them in times of hardship and struggle. In a world full of pain and suffering it is so important to keep our hearts and minds fixed on Jesus.

Faithbooking allows us to express and explore our personal relationship with God through creativity and imagination.

To start you on your faithbook journey I have included some helpful links that should help you get started.

Creative Memories is a great starting point for journaling ideas. If you are not sure where to start or what to write about, this site offers many journaling topics and questions that will get you thinking about your personal relationship with Christ.

Jess Gordon’s blog, “Scrapbook Ideas” was incredibly helpful when beginning my faithbooking search. Her “faithbooking” tab gave me lots of inspiration and ideas to begin documenting my own faith journey.

Faith Sisters is another great site for layout ideas and  inspiration.

I hope these links will be helpful for you when beginning your own faithbook and hopefully I will get a chance soon to post my own faithbooking projects. Until then, happy scrapping!
