I once taught a Sunday School lesson on Gratitude and came across a talk by Bonnie Parkin. In it she described how each night before family prayer, her family would list off blessings they received that day and add them to their "blessings basket". I decided to start a similar tradition in our family (it was only my husband and I then) where each Sunday we wrote down 10 blessings we had received that week. Some weeks it was really hard to find 10, and other weeks we had more like 20. It was interesting how our perspective on life changed. Even some bad things that happened turned out to be blessings in our journal because things could have been worse, or so and so helped us, etc. Now 5 years later, we are still keeping it up. I figure that by now we have recorded over 2,600 blessings!!! [. . .]
Well, just one clementine for now. Introducing the first clementine (creative team member) of Citrus and Mint---Tiffany!
I met Tiffany on Pixel Scrapper and started following her on Pinterest. She's got great ideas and great scrapbooking style. She's a mom of three and fellow creative spirit (probably a kindred spirit too). It's funny because even though we haven't ever physically met, I think she knows my tastes better than some of my friends! All of the layouts in this post are hers. Aren't they fabulous? I love how she always uses lots of elements. You can also check out her other layouts at her Pixel Scrapper gallery HERE.
Recently I checked my freebie downloads and saw that some kits had more than 2500 downloads! That's awesome! I love that people are enjoying my designs! It got me thinking about where those 2500 people are and what their creations look like [. . .]
