• Hey girlie!!

    Can’t wait to see what you’ve got going on. Sounds like you had a fun, productive and relaxed weekend!! Good for you. Talk to you soon.


  • I think it is so neat to hear how happy other people are. I totally get what you are saying. Congrats on all of your professional and personal happiness. It couldn’t happen to a neater person!!


  • Congratulations on having such an inspiring, productive day. I agree – the people you spend time with can definitely propel you to new heights in productivity and creativity.

  • hi Elsie!

    i managed to pick up your newest book this weekend while i was visiting family in vegas, and i so love it!

    so i just wanted to thank you for spreading your inspiration on to others, including me. :]

    take care.

  • ahhh i really miss being in front of the audio console.. i used to major in audio engineering back in school and your photo of Mr Larson working brought back memories… πŸ™‚ and i love that drawing…. starbucks love eh? πŸ™‚ super cool!

  • Please let Mr. Larson know that his music got me through a terrible Monday and I can’t wait for his new music. Love the sketch, it reminds me of me and my hubby. Fits us to a tee. πŸ˜€

  • I haven’t left a comment in a while… i’ve just been blog stalking lol But I just wanted to say that I am so inspired by your photos. I wish I could take photos like the ones I see here! I’m def. saving up to get a kick butt camera. Thanks for all the inspo! πŸ™‚ keep up the amazing work!! You are def. my role model. haha

  • I am jealous that you get to spend your days creating – it is such a romantic life! πŸ˜‰ Congrats on your very productive day! Can’t wait to see the results.

  • You are such a cute couple. Your creativity seems to bounce off each other, that’s pretty cool!β™₯ πŸ™‚

  • i really love it too when people, things, books and music around me inspire me to create art…that is one of the best feeling for an artist! =)

  • That’s the cutest drawing ever. I wish I had your talent for drawing, or any talent for drawing, for that matter.

  • agreed. you and mr.larson inspire me so so much. it makes me really happy to see you happy. haha, silly- but still πŸ˜€

    lovely lovely!!!


  • mr larson has quite an awesome engineering setup for an independent artist! i’m impressed.

  • hey, are you teaching any workshops at archivers scrapfest in minneapolis this september? thanks

  • I totally agree. The time I am most creative/inspired/productive/artistic is when my sister is playing and singing her songs to me. I just recorded them to the computer so I can listen to them when she’s gone (she’s moving away-to Denver πŸ™ ).

  • I got the whole “recipe box” last night, and I have always loved your work, but I have never felt as inspired as I do after looking through that box!

    I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that before I found your art, I felt totally alone in the scrapbooking world. (No kids, messy pages, layouts inspired by my music). And then, I saw your Scrapbooking Challeges book, and I thought. Wow. I am totally not alone.

    And I thought. Wow. Maybe my handwriting really isn’t too messy for my pages.

    I got into all this scrapbooking mess because I just wanted a way to display my photography. Not only did I find that, I found a way of letting my feelings out that didn’t feel like an emo disaster.

    I am totally blabbering, but I just wanted to say thanks for the inspiration.

    Also, I wanted to say that my whole life my parents have taught me to dislike Peter Pan (we happen to be red-face indians) but your paitings make Tiger Lily look so cute I almost don’t care how insanely racist it is.

  • You have such a positive outlook, its refreshing to see and hear.

    I hope tomorrow is as inspiring as today…

    enjoy it.
