This week, I am so honored to have as my guest, the always inspiring, Stacy Julian! If you've listened to me for any length of time, you know that my approach to scrapboking is very influenced by Stacy's philosophies and writings on the subject.

Thanks to all of you who have listened and supported me on this journey and thanks to my darling husband for my lovely new theme song! Great things are ahead in 2017!
