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.

I LOVE Studio J!!!!
CTMH emailed me saying that I should receive my layouts (and free sheet protectors) on July 2nd, but they were waiting on me when I got home late Thursday night. Walgreens layout was $12.99 but I had a coupon code for 30% off and free shipping. I got that layout for under $10! It is supposed to be delivered tomorrow. I can't wait to see how it compares to ones from CTMH. The ones I ordered from CTMH look GREAT!!!!!! Gabe even commented that they look as good as paper layouts and I should start doing more of these! I got 6 2-page layouts for under $40, and I only spent about an hour and a half on them. There is no way I could have done 6 2-page paper layouts that quickly or that inexpensive!
I am planning to purchase a membership so that each month I get free shipping on one order and all layouts are just $6.50. I can do 5 layouts a week, place an order just once per month and get seriously caught up on my scrapbooking. The membership also has special layouts just for members and even exclusive paper packs. Oh, and I get a free jpg with each layout too!!!! That means I can share my super cool layouts with all of you so easily. I am super excited about the possibilities with Studio J. I am so glad that I finally tried it but I am sad that I didn't do it sooner.
