Jessica Forbeck

I love your blog. All those Christmas project have me inspired! Thanks for sharing.


I just love looking at your photos of your children & your life. Your family has so much fun together & that is very important. I have red heads in my family & I just love that color. I hope what you read does not come true because I love their personalities with that color of hair. I also love viewing the projects you make. You are very talented.

Peggy Lee Baker

I look at your blog everyday sometimes more than once I love your style, and feeling of home. I wanted to ask where did you get the white and red flowers that are on the stocking. I love them.. I live in Whitefield, NH in the whitemountains.


Your kids are adorable--I love seeing all the cute pictures you take of them!


LOVE your ideas here, Sherelle. I hadn't stopped by in a while....gotta catch up! Would love to have that book....gotta spot all ready for it. :-)


I stumbled across your blog today and I've been reading a whole bunch:) Gotta say don't know how you keep it together, as a mother of 3 I barely can. Love the pics! Kinda interesting seeing the farm...being I'm from NYC..don't really see much of those. Love the Christmas projects I was actually looking for just that as I stumbled across your site...Lots of luck.

I love reading your blog. I have 4 children too, similar ages. They are 2, 3, 5 and 6. You give me hope that, "yes, I can do it all!" Thanks.

Well--I am always impressed when I visit your blog. You are such a talented photographer and the creations you post are so beautiful!

Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration. Janet B


Wow so many comments...
Thought I would come out of lurking and tell you how much fun I have reading your blog. Kind of a cute story...it helped me bond with my daughter. She turned 10 this summer and toward the end of the school year last year she would get cranky when it was time to "do" her hair. She is growing out her bangs and she would just fall apart. Well I showed her your cute hair pictures, and AHHHHH what a difference it has been doing her hair! We have been able to actually enjoy the time together.


The projects are so cute!


you are so very talented. I love all of the photos of your family and your inspiring projects.



I LOVE your blog and check it many times a week.....I would of left a comment sooner but was having my own "Baby Lily" on Thursday, I was a little busy. Thanks for sharing the many great ideas you have!!!


Love your blog!!!!!!!! Your children are gorgeous, your photography incredible and your projects sooooooo inspiring. I don't know how you do it all but you do it very well! Keep up the good work. You are an inspiration to us all.


The book is amazing ... what fun projects. It gets me excited for Christmas!

Sherri P

Simply adorable!!!


Oh My!!! Your projects are fabulous and your children are so adorable. {I think every time I comment here I say how cute your babies are.} I would love to be added to the drawing for a book. What fun!! I did not know that this book existed - oh my goodness I'm totally missing out on something. If I don't win well then I guess you've just enabled me to go shopping and find one in my area *wink*. Oh pretty please, pick me - pick me. Hee Hee

Thanks for sharing a few teasers from the new MM idea book! I can't wait to see it and get some cool ideas!

It's one of my favorites, has great ideas for scrapping, making gifts, recipes, photography, hair style tips if I ever have a little girl I am so going to use some of the hair styles you posted on here!

I just have to say how much I love visiting your website. I visit it practically everyday, I feel very connected to you because we have similar lifestyles, like you I have a lot of little ones always at my feet. My oldest just turned six and started kindergarten last week. He is my only boy and then I have a four year old, three year old, 18 month old, and two month old girls. I totally know that pregnancy on top of pregnancy feeling, not fun. I also work on the weekends at a cute little scrapbook store, which I love, especially for the little break even though I get to take my baby with me. She's my little working gal. And we both have a love for the Lord. I can't deny that I have an obsession for idea books, I love to get my hands on them and flip through them for inpiration. You definitely inspire me I can't tell you how many times I've gone to your blog to get ideas, so I would definitely love the new MM idea book. I'm definitely going to make my kids each a stocking, those are adorable! And don't apologize for posting a lot of pics of your kids, that's what drew me to your blog in the first place. It shows how much you love them.

Claire-Ann Hill

Christmas has truly become a fun season again, now that decorations are much less formal and stiff looking. It has always been so joyous but now more relaxed again.

I have always enjoyed the photos of your adorable family...you either have the cutest kids in the world or you are an amazing photographer....personally, I think it's both!

Tracy Schmitt

What wonderful inspiration you have given me. Now that it is fall, it's time to start projects for the holidays. Love the pics of your kids and your photoshoots. Thanks for sharing,

Jen Cozzens

Love your blog and your beautiful projects! Can't wait to see your projects in the new book! And you can't go wrong with pictures. Love them! PS. I use your chore charts with our girls and they love them. Thanks!


I absolutely love your style of scrapbooking, and love reading your blog. We have a 3 year old daughter with really thick long hair so I look forward to seeing what you have done with your daughters hair.


adorable children. I would LOVE to win one of the new books! Just love your projects!!

Tammy S.

What a cute family you have!! Thanks for sharing your ideas, and pictures. I love the Walmart p.j.'s they are darling, I will have to check my local Walmart and see if they have them for my little one. After having a sick baby for 6 days.. with very little sleep... I was so happy and looking forward to see your post with all the cute pictures, I can't wait to have a happy baby again so I can start snapping the pictures :)

Andrea UK

Your photography is amazing! You always seem to capture so much emotion in your pictures. I am improving, but looking at your pics are always an incentive to keep trying!! Those Christmas projects are amazing!!! I just love homemade gifts and decorations too. The jars is so pretty and I am after altering some for journal jars (so thanks for sharing). The ribbon wreath and stocking are adorable!!


Your blog is saved in my favorites and I check it daily to see what new inspiration you have posted. I am just a southern girl who stumbled apon your blog somehow back in the spring and I am addicted. We moved to Boise Idaho a few years ago from Georgia. I have not really met anyone here that I have clicked with creative wise and that even comes close to my bestfriend back home, so when I found your blog and read you lived in Idaho too it was inspiring. Thanks for all your time and ideas you put into your blog for everyone to see.


Awesome ribbon wreath and I love that snowman craft idea! We'll be doing that one for sure! Please don't stop sharing all the photos. They are so much fun to see.
Also-love those pj's!

kristan martin

Sherelle, I can't believe how you get things done! You just got that book and got those projects made already? I'm feeling super motivated now!
I'm a picture person too and I believe it is absolutely impossible to have too many pictures, especially of your family!

Ellen Patton

I'm a red head and I hope red hair won't be extinct! I always enjoy your photos and your ideas are so cool. Thanks!
