Thank you to all the wonderful teachers in my life!!!

Some weeks I am so "Thankful" it is Friday. This week is one of those weeks. I am the mother of 5 children ranging from 21 to 9. My youngest child has struggled with a speech and language disorder and was just diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder.  He is super smart and extremely popular among his peers. All of his classmates want to come to his house to play. He has been in speech therapy his entire life so that he can articulate words correctly.  I am happy that he came last because I am able to spend more time and give him more attention. Because of this our relationship is really strong and I have to remember to not be so protective of him when he is with his friends. He has wonderful teachers, and really good friends that do not treat him any differently.

 Over the years I have relaxed my hovering tendency.  A week ago we were at some friends house that we had not seen in several years for a party. I do not advertise my child's disorder, but when he speaks it becomes apparent. Our friends 11 year old boy started teasing my child and mimicking his voice. I have to say it was eye opening because he had not been teased before. My child left the party and went and sat in the car. I did not witness the teasing. I got the story out of him on the way home. He was humiliated. I wanted to turn around and have him point out all the kids that were teasing him, but we were already far away.

 He is the sweetest kindest person you could ever meet. I am so thankful for all the loving, kind hearted people in my life. These people accept us for who we truly are and love us for our shortcomings. This week was teacher appreciation at our school. I wrote Thank you notes to all of his teachers, principal, speech therapist and reading specialist. They make my child feel like a million bucks. They encourage him to do anything he sets his mind to. I personally believe that people need to be told that they are appreciated. A short note does not take very long to write, but means the world to the person receiving it. Write a short note to someone today telling them Thank you for their kindness. It will mean the world to them and to you too!!!

Let me know what you are thankful for...Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline

Glass Jar Storage and American Crafts DIY Chalk Labels

I am a huge fan of organizing my craft and hobby supplies. I have been looking for solutions for some of my supplies that would  be functional and look nice. I like to be able to see what I have. Sometimes just seeing an item lends inspiration to a project I am working on. I found some jars that I liked at a local craft store and waited until they went on sale. One day I walked into the craft store and the jars I wanted were 50% off. Each jar only cost me a couple of dollars. I was thrilled. I knew just what I wanted to do with them. We sell at  Chalk Board Labels from American Crafts DIY Collection. 12 Chalkboard labels come in a pack and they work perfectly with American Crafts Chalk Board Markers. I love the chalkboard look. They stick really well and make these jars look awesome. Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline

(I take my extra ribbon, ribbon I receive on gifts,  and other scraps and keep them in a jar to be reused.  Many times ribbon is too cool to throw away. They can have a second life and make another project beautiful.)

Carte Bella Baby Mine Boy and Girl

I love Spring. I love all of nature coming back to life. I also like the fact that 3 of my 5 children are born in the Spring. My daughter celebrated her birthday on March 15 and my son turns 9 this Friday. All of my children are so precious to me and I love being a part of their lives. I still remember their first moments of life. It is a memory a mother never forgets. That moment when you meet the baby you have carried and nurtured for nine months face to face. The incredible love that washed over me when I held them in my arms for the first time. The new Carte Bella Baby Mine Boy and Baby Mine Girl will help capture those moments. With the loss of Liliana Rose 2 months ago. Picture taking has taken on a whole new meaning at It has become even more important to take pictures, print them, and have them for others to see. Treasure those moments and take as many pictures as you can. The ones you have are never enough. :-)
Best Wishes!!! Jacqueline (Pictures and layouts courtesy of Carte Bella)

Teresa Collins Hello My Name Is

I have the coolest job in the world. I love it!!! I love the people that I get to work with. I could not ask for a better group. They are so much fun. I have always loved scrapbooking and creating something from nothing. So I love being in this industry working for

One of the cool things that I get to do is visit other companies. One of the companies I get to visit is Teresa Collins. On this particular day that I visited with this company, I got to meet Teresa Collins in person. I had never met her before. She is one of the nicest people I have ever met and EXTREMELY talented. Sean was showing me some of the new product lines and I asked if I could shoot a quick video of the Instagram Banner Kit and the Flip Book Photo Album. He asked if I would like to do it with Teresa. Of course I jumped at the chance. She came down and we shot these two videos very quickly. It was so fun to have her talk about her inspiration behind these products and how important it is to display those memories for those around us. Thank you Teresa for a great memory. (For other great videos check out our All Scrapbook Steals YouTube channel.)

Today is having a sale on another great Teresa Collins line called Hello My Name Is.. I wanted to share this fun project made from this line. (Courtesy of and Designed by Teresa Collins) I hope you like it!!! Best Wishes!!! Jacqueline
