Hey bloggers scrapers and crafters, I’m Rachel the digital scrapbook designer behind Pretty in Green, you’ll find my designs at Ginger Scraps. I also love to bake and sew, altho I seem to be working with digital more often these days… I like the Undo button, lol… I am one of the many fans of Modern June and follow all of her posts and drool over her talent. So I just had to jump at the chance to be apart of this. I am a wife and stay at home mom to two little kidos Gage-6, and Ana-3. We as women and moms have been surround by unreal expectations for ourselves, from super models to “super moms” but I believe as long as your a good mom and love them with all your heart and feel good about yourself nothing else should matter. Yes I will admit, my house isn’t perfect heck as I write this post the kids rooms are a disaster area, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love and care for my children.

I swear her room was clean last week!


And I will admit, for long time I hated my freckles, I’m too short, my belly is a little squishy thanks to mother hood and my breasts are not to standerd size, lol. BUT these “imperfections” are what make me, me. When I was in high school I had a multitude of teen magazines of course filled with beautiful young women, but one day I happened upon a fashion spread with a unique beauty, she was fair skinned freckled and had light strawberry blond hair. From that moment on I could see beauty is not a standered it is uniqueness it was having that something special that no one else had. So what if I’m not a size two, have flawless skin, or a perfect hourglass figure, I know I am beautiful because of who I am inside and because I am who I’m meant to be, surrounded by my beautiful kids and loving husband. What’s that saying… God broke the mold when he made me!
So whats is that something special I feel makes me a Unique beauty, even as I write this it’s hard to think that’s beautiful, but I believe it’s my “big” nose… yes I know silly right, I’ve stared in the mirror more than a few times thinking about what I would look like with out such a prominent nose, but really I love my eyes, they sparkle when I’m happy, and change from blue to green, and with out my nose I just think my face would look off, and then my eyes wouldn’t look right, or natural. so that is my unique beauty, and its me.


So I’d like to hear about what makes you a Unique Beauty, what do you love or kinda love about your body that isn’t exactly the “norm” as society sees it. I will pick 5 random comments here to win a free copy of my newest, not yet released kit called “I am Beautiful” the winners will be picked on 3/14.

I hope you all feel Beautiful in your own skin. Don’t let anyone or anything bring you down, you are beautiful.

That is how I am feeling right now, days are all mashing together!

Daisy & June was featured on VeryJane.com this weekend and it was wildly successful! 272 camera straps were sold and my goodness that is far more than i expected or could have dreamed of! I have already placed an order for emergency fabric and started plugging away at them. I have one batch ready to ship for Thursday 🙂


The Snow Day Add On hit the shop yesterday and I am still looking for that winner from last week!!

its the Add On to Snow day


Now for my recent RAKs I am on RAK #6

Yesterday was a simple one, driving through a very busy shopping center was this woman arms full of boxes and bags waiting to cross and NO ONE would let her into the street. So I had the hubs stop and wave her across, the driver on the opposite side was less than pleased with me but who cares! I mean my goodness she had the right away and her hands were full!

My kid brother comes to town today and is staying with us for 2 days and I couldn’t be happier about it! He’s 21(8years younger than me) and adorable and my kids just love him to pieces. They have no idea he is on his way so its going to be a super surprise!

ok that’s all for now!

Whew what a weekend I had! Friday night my best friend came to see me with her darling new boyfriend. I haven’t seen her in over a year so there were tears and lots of hugs.  We sat around till almost 1 am talking, drinking and laughing. Oh goodness we laughed for hours my cheeks hurt the next day. It was so lovely to see her 🙂

Saturday I finished a new digi kit and the final strap for my Very Jane order.  Whats Very Jane you ask??  Oh its just this super awesome daily deal site that offers deliciousness everyday at amazing prices. On November 26th Daisy & June will be featured on there for my camera straps. I am beyond excited for this!

Speaking of Daisy & June, I will be launching this week so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Sunday I had some classroom parent things to take care of. Making a food drive box for the class and finished up a sorting project for my sons teacher. I am pretty proud of myself juggling all those things in one weekend but boy am I beat today!

I also have Day 3 of my 30 Days of RAK to tell you about.  For Sunday(Day 3) I made up a batch of snicker doodle cookies and this morning I pack up a few and took them into the lady at the front desk of the school. This lady hears it all, when parents are grouchy, irritated or frustrated she gets an earful…she handles the kids, the teachers and the parents and I rarely hear anyone thank her.  I was waiting in line to check out via Lock Guard and she was walking into the school. She says to me – “checking out?” I say yes and she says “here I will take your sticker and sign you out so you don’t have to wait  in line” – she didn’t even have her coat off and here she was trying to make my day better!  So I said “great, thank you!” handed her the container and  told her, they were for her. Her jaw dropped and she blushed and I said “you have a great day! See you this afternoon at pick up!”

I know for a fact I made her day little better and I also can not think of a person more deserving of a little cheer 🙂

Now for a little digi business…

I have a new kit out today – Snow Day – you can get Snow Day for 20% off all this week!
