With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to share my favorite Irish blessing. Have a great week!

I am Blessed February 23, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — ladyjeffries @ 7:12 am


This winter has been one of the worst for our area for snow and ice. In addition to several snow storms and really cold temps, we had a sleet storm that coated everything in an inch of sleet, making our yard look like a giant snow cone. While it’s pretty to look at, it’s impossible to drive on. I am blessed to be able to work for a company that understands personal safety is more important than my presence in the office. I am blessed by the technology and freedom to be able to work from home whenever needed. If I didn’t have this option, we would have to move into the city, or I would have to find a job closer to our home here south of town. While not impossible, it would not be my ideal solution. I am blessed to have a manager that trusts me to get my work done from home without constant supervision. I am blessed with employees I can trust to do their jobs without me being there to ensure work is getting done. Even though there are days I don’t always like my job, it’s days like today that I know that I am blessed to work for Monsanto.

Friends with Flair July 9, 2010

Filed under: Cards — ladyjeffries @ 6:43 am

I’m so happy this week to be part of Unity’s Friends with Flair Friday.  Here is a card I made this week for a baby shower I’m traveling to this weekend.  I used stamps from several different sets.  The ‘Miracle’ sentiment is from the June ’09 KOM, the string is from the May ’10 KOM, and the baby onesie is from Soirées and Such.  The patterned paper is from My Mind’s Eye Tres Jolie line.

In addition to the digi page I completed, I also entered a traditional two page lay-out to the Throwdown.  I adopted the sketch using repeated elements and individual details.  I’m really pleased with the way it turned out.

Here’s a close up of the journaling.

I scanned the Playbill and reduced the image to fit on the page.  I wanted to keep that memory without the extra paper clutter in my scrapbook or around my house.


Going Digi June 28, 2010

Filed under: Scrapbooking — ladyjeffries @ 6:34 pm

Every month, our local scrapbook store has a sketch contest.  Sometimes I like to enter just to have an excuse to get some scrapbooking accomplished.  This month’s sketch is below.

This month I thought I would try something different and go digital with this layout.  I used several free elements and pulled together a nice little patriotic page.  Links to the digital elements used are provided below.
