Let's Fill Each Other's Buckets

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 01/30/2015 - 08:20

I've been reading The Accidental Creative by Todd Henry, which I'm about half way through, so I can recommend that part. I came across this quote and I wanted to share it here:

Project Invisible Pocket

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 01/28/2015 - 08:17

One of my goals for the year was to stay on top of my current photos and to motivate myself I'm determined to print the book out at the end of the year. I don't actually own any photobooks of my layouts, and I've decided that this is the year that changes.

New Bundle: Here & Now

I shared a little sneak peek mood board with you on Saturday, so I hope this bundle lives up to what you imagined from that.

Sneak Peek Mood Board: Here & Now

By Marisa Lerin Sat, 01/24/2015 - 00:11

Shaking things up a little this year, I thought you might be interested in how a bundle takes shape. I have a little sneak peek for you today, for my bundle coming on Monday, in the form of a mood board. These are a few of the main images I used to capture the inspiration of what I wanted to create and keep me on the right track. Often in digital scrapbooking design we're working with a general theme, not really specific to anything, which makes the designing quite tricky because it reality it still needs some sort of theme behind it.

Capsule Wardrobe Saga: Part 3

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 01/23/2015 - 09:50

If you're just joining us, you may want to read Part 1 and Part 2 first.

This is my last post about this idea, for a little while at least, I promise. I've got a little digi talk to share with you next week: I've had another obvious observation, so prepare yourselves. Also I have a new bundle coming out Monday. Yay!

Capsule Wardrobe Saga: Part 2

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 01/21/2015 - 11:26

If you didn't read part 1 of this story, you may want to start there because I'm just going to jump right in to my wardrobe as it looks right now. Then I'll let you know all my feelings about everything.

Unless otherwise stated, everything in these photos is from Old Navy.

Capsule Wardrobe Saga: Part 1

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 01/19/2015 - 10:55

You all are always super nice and indulge me whenever I feel like introducing a new topic here on the blog. So I'll give you the heads up right now that this entire post is about clothes. Specifically, my clothes. Less specifically, starting a capsule wardrobe. I'm hoping at least one of you will find this interesting!

2014 Snapshot

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 01/12/2015 - 13:36

A year later and I'm right back where I started. 2014 began by spending a month at the Oregon coast, which was definitely a highlight of the year. So much so, that a year later we're back. After some serious holiday party time it's been really nice to just be in the peace and quiet of the coast. One of my hopes this month is to spend some time putting 2014 to rest and getting ready for 2015. To do that, I first need to remember what even happened in 2014...

2014: Instagram Favorites

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 01/09/2015 - 07:10

This is a double favorite things post, because not only am I going to share my favorite photos from Instagram this year, I also want to take a minute to tell you why Instagram itself is also one of my favorite things.

New Designer: Violet Irisovna

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 01/07/2015 - 08:19

Exciting news today! I'm pleased to welcome a new designer to the Pixel Scrapper team. If you've followed along with our blog trains in the past, I'm sure you've seen Violet's lovely designs, and I'm really happy to have her here at Pixel Scrapper. Violet herself is a pocket scrapper, so her designs are focused on documenting daily life.

I'll let her introduce herself:

My Favorite Things: 2014

Do you love lists? I love lists. Please share your 2014 lists below in the comments. Also, disclaimer, just because I put some of these things next to each other does not mean I think they're equally good. The only criteria is that they are a favorite (for some reason) from this year.

Happy New Year!

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 01/01/2015 - 11:43

Whew! It's a new year and I hardly know what to do! It's been a busy season for us, starting with Thanksgiving in Memphis and then Christmas at the coast. We've been enjoying lots of family time, but the sustained lack of a regular schedule has left me in a bit of a confusion. Over the next week I hope to catch up on things and remember what exactly is going on. To help me find the thread, I'm hoping to have a bit of time to look back over 2014, as well as make some plans for 2015.

To get started here are some of my favorite photos from 2014:
