Current Goings On

Hey out there in the Blogosphere! It has been higher than the typical craziness in the Allen Family recently because I have started a new home business! This is in addition to my Amybug's Attic graphic design business, which has been a little slow lately.

I started designing T-Shirts through Amazon! I'm doing something that I love to do anyway (work in Photoshop and Illustrator). I'm really picky, so it takes me a while to find the right designs to use. And I didn't want to make anything that was crass, or off color. So here's what I have so far! I designed these in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.

December Daily 2016 - here we go!


Welcome to another year of my favorite scrapbooking project - December Daily! I've had "record a video for December Daily" on my to-do list for about a week now. And with all of the craziness of my life, I was just able to get it done tonight. But I'm so excited! This is the first Christmas in a long time that I feel "ahead of the game" with decorating, presents, etc.

Without further ado, here is my intro video for this year!

You'll see that this year I'm using a re-purposed encyclopedia again. I love how it's an actual book and the fact that it's red doesn't hurt. I'm really going to hate it when I run out of these books! Thankfully my Dad had about one book for each letter of the alphabet, so I'm set for a little while.

Good luck with your own albums, and remember to give yourself lots of grace! And remember to enjoy the process. This is a keepsake that your family will treasure for years to come!

I'll post another video soon, happy scrapping!

Love and Craziness,

December Daily 2016 is on it's way!

Welcome to another year of December Daily! I have been super busy lately trying to get everything done before the first. And that is no easy task with a two-year old who doesn't sleep very well!

It seems like every year, I feel like I'm behind come Christmas time. And then I feel like I'm constantly catching up, so I don't ever feel like I'm really enjoying the holidays. So this year, I've been diligent about getting as much done as I possibly can beforehand. I started shopping in October (thank you Amazon Prime!) and am simplifying things as much as possible. So far so good, but the real test will be in the next coming weeks!

I'll be recording a video hopefully by tomorrow to go over my album and my "plan of attack" this year. I'm so excited! Stay tuned!

Love and Craziness,
