Complete Renovation

Yep, total overhaul is what we are doing at The Paper Pixie. Our plans are wrapping up nicely and loads of fun new and fresh items are on their way to the shop. Head on over to check out items that are being discontinued right now and for new the exciting new items to come!

On a lighter note, I am getting excited for the next semester of grad school heading my way. With all the holiday drama, I am ready to get focused on other things.

Getting centered with family, Christ... regrouping.

Your plans?

Marathon training started 2 days ago for me... I am trying to go Advil free as long as I possibly can.

I love drugs. LOL!

Catching up

Now that the semester is over, I can FINALLY scrap. I spent the day doing proofs for customers, kit clubs and some personal scrapping. I haven't really scrapped for the kids and myself for about 2 years. Yes, this is a 2 year old photo of my Lily... she has grown so much in 2 years.

I plan to do 2 years worth of scrapping in the next month.

That is a personal goal of mine.

I have done 3 pages today already.

You know, I have finally let go of the fact that I DON'T NEED to scrap every single month and photo of the kid's life. I am picking and choosing my favs and going from there. The goal is to get them all done and then stay on top of it.

Does anyone else have some personal scrapping goals? If you do I would love to hear them.

Another personal goal is to find a way to organize all of my stickers. Dude, I have SOOOOOO many stickers, rub ons and stuff that is suffocating me and my studio. I try to tune into CK's organize column every month and have some really cool ideas... unfortunately, all of them involve my hubby and some sort of power tool.

I hope everyone is having a great Christmas.

New and improved Paper Pixie items are coming soon, so don't panic ladies and gents!

Go figure...

Turkey Day at our house was great! Brent and I ran the race and made it home in time to put the bird in the oven. We had lots of family over for the holiday and had fun, but next time, next time... it is someone else's turn. Don't get me wrong, I like doing the cooking and hosting the event, but sometimes I want to relax and play Trivial Pursuit too, LOL. B and I ran the race and when we went to check the results... I was struck by the what was on the homepage of the race.


Yep, last year's photo of me. 15,000 + runners in the Cincinnati Thanksgiving Day Race and they pick my photo. At first I thought it was computer specific and plugged my photo in there as I logged on.


Nope, there I am in the full hideous glory, smiling like a dork for all to see.

See, people always made fun of me that I am a "cheese ball" at the races. When I spot a photographer I always wave and smile. There is nothing worse than looking like you are dying when you are running a race. Even if you are relaxing and just breathing, you still look pained. Heck, I am having fun right? Now it has come back to haunt me.

Why didn't they pick one of those cutsey little girls dressed up as Indians, with their cutsey pie feathers in their hair, all of them running thier little foursome? Why not the man pushing his face painted twins in the freezing temps and cheiftan hat on?

Why me?

Ok Ok Ok... here is the link if you must go and see....

My time was pretty good and so was Brent's this year, better than last year as I am pretty surprised. I have been plagued with injuries after the last 2 marathons that I didn't think I was going to run it. Thank God for Advil Liquigels... a runner's dream. I finished about 22nd out of 800 ish runners in my category. This year, however good the time was, I didn't smile at one single photographer. I was pretty deep in concentration and will probably regret any future photos this year....

I plan to take 2 solid months off of running to heal and gear up for the next marathon. I hope I can last 2 months... "yeah right", as I tell my physical therapist. She just shakes her head.

On another note, don't forget the December Giveaway in the shop is tomorrow, so get your comments in asap.

~~~Clay Nest Pottery~~~

Ok, so we had 45 minutes left before the Ryle Craft Fair was about to end... we thought we would get Lukey out of the house for a smidge after his surgery, as he was getting stir crazy. Anyhoo, I ran into this lovely little booth with this amazingly earthy and fun pottery called "Clay Nest Pottery". Now we all know how hot earthy pottery is, especially if it has those fun little nests and eggs with that "Peter Rabbit" feel. I purchased the most lovely, one of a kind cream colored bowl with a clay branch going right throught. Something right out of Winnie the Pooh, totally. I can't wait to serve some Peanut Butter Brickle in it for dessert.

I told her, that her items would be perfect for etsy... as they are hand crafted, unique and well priced. Come to find out she is an etsyian too!!

Here are some photos of the lovelies in her etsy shop. Go and visit now, and get a one of a kind piece for yourself or your loved one for the holiday! I totally treated myself and am so happy I did! Good luck with your store Maggie!!

Hope all is well, stay tuned for a give a way post tomorrow!!!

New and Fresh are here!!

Man, it has been a while since new items were added to the shop! After many requests to get off my duff and get some new tags and journaling spots up and running... here they are! There are lots more to come, but here is the first installation of newest items. The barcode tags are rockin' and fun! Let's plan for another giveaway soon shall we? Maybe some of these guys will be included...

Lots going on here on the home front lately. Lukey is gearing up for his tonsillectomy on the 21st, this FRIDAY. I am nervous and put him on the prayer chain at church. Lily is in her second swing of cheerleading, this time it is basketball. The coach is a total nutcase. Seriously.

I am trying to get my hands on a Wii, but why I waited this long to get one instead of buying one earlier this year is a mystery to me dude... well no mystery... i am a busy lady.

School is going well and feel more plugged in than ever into my studies and work on the unit. Just trying to piece it all together and soak it all in. The semester ends this time next month, so I am totally stoked about scraping for the kids, baking, shopping, nesting for the whole month I am off of grad school. I have also decided to take a small break from teaching to focus on some other areas that need my attention, mostly family oriented stuff. I am still planning to run the Thanksgiving Day Race, although injured, it is a tradition. Brent is begging off... he's out, WIMP. Thank God Sarah will run with me!

Here are some shots of the kids and I at Kinman Farms a couple of weeks ago. Lily is cute as ever and Lukey... well... he thinks he is the Incredible Hulk and this is his standard smile for photos lately. Drives me insane. He even growls when he does it. I shake my head and smack my husband for letting him watch that DVD.

I hope everyone is having a good Fall and we at The Paper Pixie wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.

Sunday, November 02, 2008

Kaysibley you are the WINNER!!!

Contact me girlfriend at to claim your tags!!!

Sunday, October 19, 2008


Ok guys, thanks for waiting patiently for this one! We just got back from the Columbus Marathon, and the weather was wonderful. We have been so busy with training and me with grad school that the giveaway got pushed waaaaay back. So, here goes!

What is your favorite fall memory? Simply reply to this question in the comments and let me know a way I can get back to you... leave your email addie if your blogger account is private... etc.

I will be giving away these fall flourishes from the shop! These colors are coordinated perfectly with these and these. So head on over to the shop today and stock up!! Shipping is LOW flat rate and not to be beaten on etsy!!

The drawing will be held on OCTOBER 31st!!

So, my favorite memory is running the Thanksgiving Day Race in the morning and then going back to the house to catch a nap... if I am not cooking the bird, LOL. If I am hosting the dinner at my house, then I love cooking and getting the house ready for my family. I love running that race, because it totally bites getting up that early and running in the cold... but you know when you are done all your calories are FREE!!!! Turkey and mashed potatoes get you across the finish line.

Come on... what's yours??

Hey Sarah!! I can't wait to run the race with you... it has been too long girlie... train hard and we'll have a blast!

Having way too much fun!!

Just a little something I whipped up tonight! Love this lots, especially since it is a year ago I took these photos at her birthday party!

Thanks for looking!

Sunday, October 05, 2008

Lovin these!

Hope everyone is well out there! I spent all afternoon yesterday creating some winter season newbies and mothering a sick child. My little guy has the plague - I am still trying to figure it all out. Anyways, I am up before the rest and thought I would check in on my blog... boy there are lots of people tuning in lately from all over the country and the world. Blogging is so cool, huh? I wish I could do it more often.

Anyways, with being banned from running for 2 weeks (which is killing me BTW), I have to really pay attention to the items I shove into my pile hole. When you are running long distances you can pretty much eat anything you want and not gain weight, but when you stop... well let's just say my butt wants to pudge up. LOL.

I am totally in Love with these!!!

They tack on a mere modocom of calories and are truly delightful and PRETTY! Just look at them. They have such fun stories on the cover - totally fun. One even has an appetite suppressant (pretty safe as I can tell)! Lots of vitamins too.

Another is the Raspberry Chipotle Salad from Quiznos. The raspberry dressing is low cal, low fat and low carb and is AMAZING!! I asked the manager for nuritional info (yes, I am a nerd) and he was nice enough to give me 3 packets to take home. I just love great customer service, don't you??

P.S. I did not take that photo, I pirated it off the internet, LOL.

Last but not least, my favorite! Dessert.

These couldn't taste anybetter and with only 90 calories-------> Come on!

Hope everyone is enjoying these last few weeks of sunshine, hopefully cool days with the AC off and windows open. I feel the furnace days are coming soon. Gosh I miss Florida.


Wednesday, September 24, 2008

You know you are loved...

Today is my birthday. I had forgotten and then the phone rang. "gosh it's early" I thought. But, I am totally up, and finishing up a 20 page powerpoint presentation for class tonight....

Friends and family started calling around 8:00 am and internet buddies soon after. You know you are loved when people remind YOU of your birthday and call just because. Nehali, reminded me of my birthday this morning with an early email stating just that. What a nice gesture from a DT member who I have not spoken to in a while, but I always know she is there. Love Ya girl!

I promised myself a few years ago that I was going to stop counting birthdays, as it was depressing me, LOL. But, my grandmother reminded me when she said, "kid, when you get my age... you will start praying for more." Well said Gram! Thanks for the shout out this morning.

I hope everyone is having a good day, whether it is your birthday or not.

Oh, BTW, another giveaway is coming up. I just have a few things to wrap up before I go into detail.


Monday, September 15, 2008


The winner of the giveaway is.....

maddymazestudio. Congrats!!!

My lily picked the name out of the hat tonight! Please send me an email to with your address and I will get it out to you!

Well on another note, i am currently laid up with my foot on ice with my ankle wrapped in saran wrap and a cold pack... nibbling on frosted mini wheats (low cal of course) trying to shove this organic/bio chem- cellular- garbage into my brain. My brain doesn't want it there, it is rebelling. I am having a hard time getting this info to stay put up there. I often want to hit delete. The plan is to learn this for the exam and then flush all the useless info down the crapper.

I am not one to take photos of my homework...but here is an example i pirated off the internet of some useless bio chem stuff that makes some sense to me now.

My ankle is so sore, my knees ache... these back to back marathons are killing me-literally. After the 19th of October, it is easy going until the Thanksgiving Day Race and then hiatus until Feb. No more pounding. I've got lots planned to do instead. My body will thank me. My brain won't, but my body will.

For all of you Paper Pixie Fanatics, more is coming, lots more. Fall and Christmas/Holiday items are on their way. Just as soon as I can expel-purge-vomit-delete-barf this test material out of my head, new items will show up. Lot of off etsy custom orders have me hoppin and I LOVE IT.

I hope all is well and get ready for another giveway... details to follow!

Have a great night.

Well, grad school started this week...nasty. I have homework to do. Who gives homework in grad school? JK. I am trying to deal with it as best I can... (my husband just plays his air violin when I get to b_chin). I digress...

Tonight we went to the new Olive Garden that closed down, then got torn down, rebuilt yada yada yada... the place was not that great. I was thinking that we would see some new things on the menu. Nope. Infact, they still gave us the same dirty/greasy menus from the old building. Geeros. Anyhoo, the place was like Perkins inside. Light yellow curtains and white walls, terrible service.

I am totally PMSing.

I am trying to frantically get the St. E scrapbook done, as I have had the pile of pics on the table for months now and wouldn't cha know it, the phone rings... "we need it in 2 weeks". I want to say, "what do you mean? I can't have another 6 months to work on it?". How professional am i?

I always bite off more than I can chew.

Oh, and BTW I hit the 2000 mark on etsy. I am so excited that my little shop has done so well in 8 months. My sales really didn't start happening until last Dec, so i feel grateful and happy about it. Many thanks to the haters out there, believe me... there are some pretty bad haters. You can't have it all ladies... you know who you are.

I need to go and take a midol and then delete this post!



Have a great night all!

Don't forget to sign up for the drawing for the RAK! See the below post!

Oh, happy Labor Day everyone! I will be at the hospital doing something less fun, believe me on that.

Wednesday, August 27, 2008


Can we hit it? Hit 2000 sales today??? Fingers crossed! Thanks to all our wonderful customers who have helped make the shop a success! And to the future shoppers who have yet to come. Kudos to you all.

In honor of this special occasion, we are sponsoring a giveaway! The lucky winner will get a surprise pack of items from the shop! Simply leave a comment and your name will be entered to win. Names will be drawn out of a hat on Sept 15th!

Stay tuned as this is the first of many drawings and RAK's from the Paper Pixie!

Cheers! :) Kelly

Doesn't my husband and his dad look totally retarded? These photos of my hubby and FIL, were taken in Iowa last weekend. I ran across these wigs in the closest of the spare room the kids were sleeping in, i brought them out and thought they would be fun for the kids to try on - get some laughs. I was later told that they were the wigs of my MIL's dead aunts... WTF?

Well, these jo's decided to try them on and be funny... I think Steve looks like Willie Nelson and Brent looks like a surfer with a bad batch of "sun in" hair lightener... They make totally UGLY girls....

What was that cheer?


You ain't got no alibi

You ugly! (uh,uh) You ugly!

I tried the wigs on the kids and it was hilarious. Lukey looked like a pretty girl, as he has this narrow face and small features. Lily wouldn't leave her's on long enough to tell. My son looked so much like me it is not even funny. Unfortunately, I could get him on camera either. I got it all up here baby (I point to my head).

I also started grad school up again tonight and was overwhelmed once or twice with the whole organic chemistry thing... I hope I can hang. I haven't had college classes in oh.... 13 + years. I am getting old.

Oh, almost forgot! The Paper Pixie is sponsoring a RAK over at The Art Is Found... go and check it out!

Have a great night!

Goodbye Andy

I have totally got to go to bed, it is 1:30 am here and I am getting up early...bright and shiny. I have to get my run in before we head off to Iowa to visit Andy as he prepares for his deployment to Iraq. I was wanting to get him something to remember us by... and then it hit me. I will send him a photo album that is flexible and easily shoved into his duffle bag. Something that doesn't scream...girly...

Andy is my husband's brother, who has truly turned his life around this past year and a half. He enlisted himself in the military and has surprised us all by his courage and determination to do good in the world. This is a complete 180 from his earlier years. He turned 21 this year in Korea, while serving, and he is still alive and assures the family he is not an alcoholic... LOL. I will see if that is true when I see him, for my nurse nose can sniff out just about any chemical dependency on the planet. LOL.

Here are some pics of the felt, mini album I made. It's not too girly is it? The guys won't totally laugh will they? I do have to lose the bow...It is filled with pics of the family, mini ones, for this little guy is only 5 x 5 inches in dimension.

TFL. Have a great weekend and I will return on Monday!

Summer is passing us by...

This summer is flying by... i think because i have so much on my plate lately that deadlines come pretty quick. My friend Shana and I decided to make the most of our beautiful Monday, and take the kids to Conrad Park and let them ride bikes. The weather was about 79ish degrees and breezy. We packed lunch and spend a few hours there for some totally FREE fun. That is what i am talkin' about...

Here is a pick of me and my kiddos, Lukey on the left and Lily on the right.

Lily was so stoked that she could finally ride her 2 wheeler, without training wheels! YIKES! Lukey kept riding into her to make her slow down, as he is 3 and simply cannot keep up with all the bigger kids. My team totally crashed that night... we fed 'em, bathed 'em, and took them out for milk shakes and tossed them into bed. For the best part of the Summer Olympics were about to start and B and I were not about to miss any of it. We are hooked!!

OHHH, check out these totally cool, Home Decor Rub Ons by DCWV. I finally finished painting my kitchen and added this to the top soffit. It was soooo easy and the pic doesn't do it justice. I am totally buying these for people who "just have everything" and you never know what to get them.

Well, now that the owl is finally back in the shop, in his rightful place... he is up for sale again.

Ready to give some sound advice on your pages! LOL. I also added some file folder tabs too. I wanted you to be able to journal on them if you wanted and cut them up if you wanted them smaller.

Have a great week, i am off to medicate my hip. Geez. The Columbus Marathon is coming up quick and training is brutal in the summer...

Saturday, August 09, 2008

Totally NSR!!

I know this is not scrap or shop related, but this has found a new home!! I used my 40% coupon from Mike's and bought this little house this week!

I can't wait to get it out. My kids just eat up this animated stuff.

The little witch flies around the top of the house...

I plan to collect more... soooo hokey!!

The Noodle

I have been thinking a lot about this guy lately-my bro Chris. Christopher. Noodle. Ho Kim. Tootie. We call him "tootie" not for the obvious, but because he loved the Rootie Tootie Fresh and Fruity breakfast from Denny's when we grew up in FL. Yes, he has lots of nicknames. But, he is never allowed to call me Kelly, only "sis" will do. If he calls me by my name, i DO NOT respond. I worry about him and his job, health, marriage, faith, safety...lots of things. Now that he is married off and has a great job, i still worry.

Here is a recent photo of him and i at dinner, and I totally had to edit out the background objects... they were just too distracting.

I hope you are well kiddo, we love you, and are sending hugs from KY to FL :)

Here are some new things from the shop too...

Owls, Chandeliers, School Stuff... OH MY! I am overhauling the shop, and adding new items each week. My fingers cannot go as fast as my brain wants it to... my head is going to explode from all the totally rockin ideas in my head. So, if you are interested in freebies, register on the mailing list to the left! Lots of folks have signed up already!! Who doesn't want free crap? Well, not crap!!LOL.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful night and productive/or relaxing week. I am off to type my grandmother's medication list and return emails...


Saturday, July 26, 2008

So pretty!!

OK Martha, you have inspired me!! I saw this darling picture and thought, " I could totally do that!!" Lord knows I have enough punches!

What inspires you???

I think when I do mine, I will use the colors... black, white and pink or aqua... for my scrap room of course!!!

Have a great night!!

Thursday, July 17, 2008

New Stuff and Yes! I do scrap!!

It has been awhile since I sat down and scrapped a bit. Here is a little of what i came up with for a dear old friend (LOL, MBDT)!!! Still needs photos, but I will let her add them. I hate to part with this little darling... so alive this thing has become!

With gram's fun crocheted flowers and yep... hand crackled and painted fence, by yours truly. I dug out some Winnie's Walls, SEI papers for this one... I have been waiting to do this envelope album for a while.

Chuck full of etsy shop goodies, I don't know where to begin. These black vellum sticker frames came out STUNNING in person and are great for journaling right on the tag!!

I also loved how the scalloped round journaling spots matched perfectly to this paper. This line of tags is so versatile!!

I had to throw in the calendars too!

Here are just some other pics of the album!

See what I mean? I just want to put this baby on the mantle with my own photos in it!
Thanks for looking everyone, please have a happy and safe weekend!

Just Today

I sit here on my computer, out in my driveway watching the kids play... which means I am not inside doing what I need to...but that's ok. I just got home from the 11 mile run around town, in prep for the marathon in october, and I am pretty sore. I was sore before the run, from that nasty boot camp yesterday. So today, I will rest and not press myself. The weather is a balmy 80 degrees and breezy, so I am totally loving it. I designed a few cute new journaling spots as I sit here. Why can't I just sit here? Why do my hands and legs have to be productive all the time? Does anyone else have this problem?

I was planning to have a scrap weekend next week, but circumstances placed that to a halt. I was thinking... pizza, wine, friends, fun, scrappin', no kids or hubby around. But, now I will probably call my close girls and probably call Jana and see if she wants to meet us at Archiver's in Cinci on Friday for ScrapMania!! Scrapin' at Archiver's is a freakin' dream and I usually shop and socialize more than scrap.

I hope everyone else is having a great Sunday. I know I am.

Under Construction!

So, the blog is under construction and in need of some updating. Bear with us as we make way for some positive changes around here!

I also have been spending some time on my MBDT {Memories By Design Team} Mini Album and trying to finish that- using some really cool Paper Pixie items from the shop!

There is lots of cleaning here at home and at work, as graduate school begins in the fall and I function best when I am totally organized.

Thanks for dropping by!!

Stay tuned for some really cool rewards, new shop items, another featured designer... and maybe some inspiration from me (if I can ever get my kids well enough so that I can scrap!)

Pixie Designer Rebecca Vavic

Sorry for the delay in my latest blog entry, but things have been so busy in shop! Thank you to my wonderful designers (who you will meet in due time), who have been working diligently on projects/layouts/cards and mini albums. These gals have truly surpassed my wildest dreams in working with the latest designs in the shop.

With that having been said, I would love to introduce to you the first of the designers... Bek Vavic, who I have come to dearly love and whom, I think is just a doll. This Aussie's freestyle way of creating pages, truly is remarkable. As her pages have graced the pages of Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbooking Memories, and For Keeps. She is a SAHM living in Australia and has 2 beautiful children. She is a technical writer and graphic artist, as well as, scrapbooking instructor at the local college.

Her latest addtion to the Pixie's group pool "Bondi" was picked up for publication and this has us soooo excited.

You too could be the next designer for The Paper Pixie, so contact me and I would love to talk to you. Also, if you have some layouts using the Paper Pixie products, feel free to upload them to our flickr group. Contact me for an automatic and happy invite!

Stay tuned for the bio of our newest designer Kristina Proffitt!!

Have a happy and creative-fun filled week all!!

The Final Week...

Well as the training for the marathon comes to a close, our group prepares to hon in on the best eating habits this week. Lots of water and protein, minimal running, prayer, cross training, charging ipods and downloading power tunes, buying goo and avoiding injury. We have a babysitter to watch the kids while we run, which is HUGE... as our ENTIRE family unit other than ourselves will be out of town for my cousin's graduation at UK. I hate that we can't go, but the race is paid for and trained for and we gotta run it. Hopefully if all goes well and we stay free of injury we will run the Columbus Marathon in the fall and bed down for the winer.

I also did a VERY BAD THING yesterday and planted flowers in the yard. That is sure to bring on a frost... As I watched the news tonight, sure enough, in the 30's again. I jinxed the whole tristate by planting petunias. For those of you who don't know this, it is bad to plant flowers before Mother's Day. But, they looked so lovely and fresh, green and bright, I just had to. Now, I have to cover them up. Having lived in Florida almost my entire life, there were no superstitions or quams about planting all year round. I lost my head. What can I say?

One shop update... I have some guest designers in the works, so stay tuned for some real life pages with goodies from the shop!

Have a great week!

Design Team!

The Paper Pixie is looking for a creative team. It is all embryonic, but the plan is to have a couple of gals to use my products and get their pages featured here on the blog and flikr. With products now all over the world, :) I am happy to say, the WE are global! This is so exciting and inspiring! I never thought in a million years that I would love something so much as to have my own line of paper products that can make a scrapper PRODUCTIVE! Not just scrappers, but project and cardmakers, anyone who needs paper can come and shop! There is so much versatility in the items, that the possibilities are endless!

Oh, my Michael's Craft Store is having a HUGE sale this weekend with EVERYTHING EVEN SALE ITEMS, you get 25% off your entire order! Yep, ROCK ON!!

Oh, and Steph Modo has featured me again on her lovely blog and I am giving away some Paper Pixie goodies! How exciting and fun to share these. Check out her chic blog to the right------>

As I am completely drained from the near hospitalization (dental work gone horribly bad), I am back on my feet and back to running. I had to take about 4 days off and am like jello again... but I won't let it get me down. The marathon is in 2 weeks, and I am ready, I hope.

If you are interested in being a guest designer for The Paper Pixie, you can contact me if you like and I would love to talk to you!

Here is a card of my dear frequent etsy patron, Jana Millen! Thanks Jana for sharing your cards with me!! The layout is from Susan! Thank you too!!

In With The New!

As I get in the spring cleaning mode here at the house, I feel I should spring clean the shop too! I have taken some items and discounted them in the shop and placed them in the "sale items" bin, so come and have a look!

Here are some new shop items that are FUN, FRESH & UNIQUE.

Hope you're having a great weekend!
