Thanks for visiting my blog. I began journaling about my daily life when I was eleven. Over the years, this has grown to become a way for me to share my thoughts rather than my daily life. I’m pretty open with sharing all the beautiful chaos of life with six children. I have to remind myself to extend grace to myself each and every day! It is my hope that my writings will help others to learn to extend grace to themselves too. After all, if it weren’t for the Grace of God, life would just be messy. I’m so glad that life can instead be a Beautiful Mess and is covered by His Beautiful Grace.

A Great Creative Day!!!!

Yesterday was my 1st SCHEDULED Creative Day and boy was it great! On Saturday I went to the St. Jude Crop in Minden and had a great time. I got the U Bug Me Workshop kit from Lisa and started cutting the peices. On yesterday afternoon I sat down and began putting it all together. I got lots done and then finished it this afternoon. It felt so great to have a beautiful album completely finished. That's the first one this year, YEAH!

I received a tip on the bullitin boards to actually schedule in time to scrapbook and you'll get much more done. Well, after yesterday I can definately see why. I got tons done and I look forward to my creative time on Thursday afternoon. More later!!! Audrey


  1. Audrey, you are doing a great job with your blog! Your blog cracks me up, though, I am not sure exactly why other than the words seem to just pour out of you. I think you will love this creative outlet ALMOST as much as scrapping-though it is frustrating when you are new to blogging! I to am new, but I try to have fun with it. Anyways, "Hi and nice to meet you, Audrey!"

  2. Thanks Amy. Sorry I haven't noticed your comment before now to comment back. I do enjoy writing and I write like I talk. Sometimes I just go on and on and other times I have little to say. I am so glad that you happened upon my blog. I'm headed to check yours out now.

  3. Well, Amy. I tried to view yours but I guess it isn't publicly shared. Can you add me? Do I need to add you? Not sure how this works so just let me know.
