Hi from California!

I just wanted to let you know that we made it safely to California.
 We are staying in a hotel until we find somewhere to live.
4 people and 3 fur balls in one small I need to say is great!

Since all our belongings are on a ship somewhere on the seven seas, we planned a trip to Sweden for a few weeks leaving next week. 
Hopefully we will be settled in with all our stuff sometimes in July and I can start scrapping/blogging again.


I wanted to show you some photos that we had taken our last week on Okinawa. Oh, how my fingers itch to scrap when I see these pictures...

Take care and I'll be in touch!

Pin It!

Hi Helen,

My name is Tina, I am the Contributing Editor for a community called Scrapbooking powered by Atomic Reach. This is a website focused on a community of scrapbookers with great tips on scrapbooking, layout design, creative spaces and so on. Scrap a Little! has caught our attention. We’re currently looking for more writers who would be interested in contributing and/or create high quality content, and would like to invite you to participate in our program.

So, the obvious question is: What’s in it for me?

Lots of traffic to your blog, and we’ll be sending new readers to your site every day. It’s great for SEO. In many of our previous blogger cases, we’ve doubled traffic to their sites and significantly decreased bounce rates. If you decide to join, Silly Little Ones will publish the title of your posts and the first few sentences of each post. If readers want to read the full story, they’ll be pushed to your blog. The benefits are straightforward: increased exposure and more traffic to your site.

To get a better idea of how the new site will look, visit Try selecting one of the links and see how you are brought back to the original source, hence you would be driving more traffic towards your own blog!

You may also likely be wondering how you were selected. After reviewing a selection of your posts, we decided your content was perfect for our community. This includes articles, comments, videos, photographs and podcasts.

If you’re interested in joining our community, the next move is to e-mail me back at with “Scrapbook” in the subject line and I will send you an invite into the community. If you have any questions, I would be more than happy to answer them directly. I look forward to you joining our community.
