Welcome

This is my simplehearted journey. My life. My . My Growth. I hope you’ll join me on this journey.

“Big” Excitement in Little Old Palestine

One day last month, Cody and I were looking for something to do. We wanted to go on a little road trip but didn't want to go far- and we didn't want to spend much. So, as it seems we are prone to do quite often, the choice was to go get a slice pie. Only this pie is...

A Simplehearted New Year

Like so many, the new year is a time that I often reflect back on the past year considering what has worked well- and what hasn't. It's a time I look ahead and re-focus. Probably, a little more so than most who create goals for the year, it's not only a time to look...

Blogging Again

Hey all! I'm back. I know it's been forever. A lot has happened since I last blogged. But, boy do I miss capturing my story this way. So, here I am- but even I don't know where this is going. Sure I have a list running in my head of the places I'd like to take this-...

The “Giddings” Trip- The Journey Instead of the Destination

Today, I go back to work full time. Before I did, I knew I wanted a day to spend with Cody- and if I were going to get said day, I knew we had to get out of dodge. The plan first began developing as Cody was turkey hunting down south. He saw Bluebonnets and we thought...

Sometimes Even In The Simplest of Things Mistakes Happen

When I showed Cody this, he said I should never get pulled over and have to say the alphabet backwards because I can't even do it forwards. He might just be right (but I'm not worried about that). It was just a practice before I finished an assignment related to a...

The Beauty of Over Exposed Photos

It's not secret that from time to time, I get things totally wrong when taking a picture. One happy little accident that sometimes happens is that I take over exposed photos. The Beauty of Over Exposed Photos The thing with photography is that there are seldom any...

The Value of Online Scrapbooking Classes

Over the years, I've come to recognize the value of online scrapbooking classes. I suppose I'm a learning junkie anyway, but online scrapbooking classes have not only taught me about scrapbooking- or given me great ideas- but they've made me realize more about who I...

Learning to Ride on Easy Street

Sunday, for Amy Lynn's birthday, we went out to eat- and watched her consume bowls of green sauce with her chips. (I might have promised we could make some when she comes to our house. Something tells me I'd better have the avocados at the ready.) Then, because you...

The Keys- Scrapbook Design Concepts for Storytelling

I'd imagine that like me, you spend most of your time creating a page on the design of the layout. Am I right? For something we spend so much time on, it pays to really think about it- and if you want your pages to tell a story- how the design tells your story. There...

The Shy Groupie & Concert Scrapbooking Notes

So, last week, well, we drove 20 miles shy of 1,000 miles to see four nights of concerts all by the same three bands. (Can you tell the fact that we were 20 miles shy just irks me? Kinda like my husband at the pump when he's one cent over and even amount). Ever really...

Organizing Scrapbook Ideas for Pages

Wednesday I mentioned that the pictures aren't necessarily the story- that really the two things are separate. One of the ways we begin to see that is when we keep a list of pages that we want to create- a list created without looking at our photos and regardless of...

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26

Hi! Welcome! I'm Amy and I'm glad you're here.

I am a Wife. A Full-Time Employee. A Homemaker. A Creative. A Child of God. You can read more about me here.

I hope you’ll take the time to share your thoughts with me through comments or even by contacting me.

This is my journey. Delving deeper into faith. Capturing life.

I enjoy sharing my life- my stories, my struggles, the things I wonder about. It helps me capture my walk through life remembering God's promises and ponder the things I observe
