Ok, here is my latest and greatest… and it got away from me.  Like – badly!  I was supposed to make it sized similarly to the IGAP | January 2016 Collection and instead I went WAY over.. 40 papers, 90+ elements, 50 Pocket Cards, A5 Printables, 333 Stickers… so basically it is as big as my butt.. at least!  😛  And it is only $10!!!!! That is 62% off so don’t miss out on the great deal!

I've Got A Plan - February 2016

I’m going to be a show-off for just a bit and put in all the products you get in this one!


I’m so happy with out it turned out!  Isn’t it cute?!  I also went ahead and created a new freebie – not only do you get an 8×10 printable you also get the 3×4 and 6×4 JC parts too!

Happily Ever After Printable Freebie

This past week I was supposed to have a tutorial Tuesday and totally dropped the ball as I had been sick and forgot to edit the video!  I will have a brand new Scrap & Chat up and if you missed the last one you can watch it right here!



Hi Everyone!  In my attempt to keep up with my blog for the new year I have an update along with some things to share!  First off.. Mommyish is officially at The-Lilypad!  You may notice that my full inventory is not yet available.

Over the course of the past few weeks my family and I have been busily trying to get all products imported from two sites into one.  The process is nearing full completion —  we just aren’t quite there yet!  Over the next several days we will be loading more and more products at TLP.  Do not fear 🙂  Mommyish will be back fully VERY soon.  Until then I want to share a project with you that I have really poured my heart and soul into over the past few weeks.


As you can see I’ve Got A Plan is my new monthly collection.  I have gotten a bit addicted to planners thanks to Cocoa Daisy!  I have absolutely loved using them and now – DESIGNING them. 🙂  This collection comes with a bit of something for everyone.  If you are a scrapper or pocket scrappers there are tons of elements, alphas, pocket cards and papers to suit your needs.  If you are a planner addict or someone wanting to dive into the fun world of crafty organization – then this set is great if you like to print at home.  Currently I only have A5/half-binder size printables.  The stickers I created work seamlessly inside the Happy Planner, Erin Condren, A5 planners and more!  (Not to mention they make great hybrid elements)  Sorry if I am gushing but I am LOVING this – I even have been using this myself.. see!



The funny thing is I’ve had a Cameo for a while now and never got around to really making it work for me – and boy can I say I am ADDICTED!  A huge thanks to my assistant Alina who finally taught me what I had been doing wrong this whole time.  😀  So yeah – that is what I’ve been up to.  In the middle of this we’ve had our holidays, birthdays, family gatherings, full blown panic attacks, you know – the usual.

With all of this said – I am very excited to start this new adventure.  I hope this year will be one of growth for all of us.  I know I have some goals this year that I really want to focus on.  This year my goal is to be more courageous and less afraid of the future.  For the past few years my “one little word” has been “fearless” but I think this year I am going for a bit of a different take on the same thing – courage.   I think I have taken the first step by consolidating and changing up my business plan a bit.   Courage doesn’t always have to be a heroic feat.  Sometimes it may be the courage to allow yourself to really be YOU.

A bit rambly, I know, but I wanted to start the new year off right!  So here is to a new adventure and the courage to try new things!  *cheers!*

Happy New Year & God Bless
