In this age of television and computers we often hear the words: “mom, I’m bored”. But sometimes, as I found out, they can surprise you. These photos were taken on a trip to the beach with my son’s kindergarten a few years back. We were all sitting waiting for our guide to arrive and all the kids were complaining that there was nothing to do. My son found a solution…he started collecting snails. It was the season when all the shells were left behind and he collected them like it was the biggest treasure he ever saw. He kept himself occupied for a long time collecting and playing with the snails. A scene worthy of a photo, don’t you think? The layout is one of the projects I created using the October Kit of the Month club by My Punch.
That was the question my son asked me when he saw all the boxes everywhere. A few years back, we lived in Kenya for a few years and when it was time to leave we packed the house in soooo many boxes I was afraid they would not fit in the container. As it turned out every box found its place in the container and luckily they even managed to close the doors. For this layout I created a special paper with my son’s drawings. He drew a house and a tree and I thought it would make the most adorable pattern for a paper on moving. I created the boxes from corrugated cardboard I cut from real boxes and I embellished the page with two types of masking tape.
Inside: how to make easy inchies and twinchies with your kids using leftover craft supplies Some of my friends call me the queen of leftovers because I always try maximizing my materials and using them in a smart way. I keep all my paper scraps, leftover stickers or rub-ons and I never throw any ribbon no matter how short it is. I try to use all my materials to their last inch, and that is exactly what I did this time…INCHIES! This was a fun project! I took some leftover papers, ribbons and other embellishments and made a few magnet inchies and twinchies to put on my fridge.

As you know I have two boys. When I scrapbook or design a project I usually use their photos. This time I had so much fun making a project for a baby girl. This is a present I made for my best friend’s daughter soon after she was born. This is a double accordion mini album in a box. My friend doesn’t like a lot of embellishments, so the design is simple and clean. When you open the box the accordions open to opposite sides. It was really great doing this project because I had a chance to use some girly materials and colors. Einat
The past month was the first month of the Jewish year. A time for reflecting, doing some soul searching and count one’s blessings. One of my life’s mottos is that there are no coincidences in life, everything happens for a reason. My life’s journey up until now has led me through valleys and mountains, it wasn’t always easy but it was worth it! I am definitely blessed. Blessed with a husband I love, children I adore and a job I enjoy. This layout represents all of those blessings. The layout is designed on a patterned paper I designed. It has worm colors and a big “Hamsa” in the center of the paper. The Hamsa is a symbol of prosperity and good luck.
