'Tis the Season....

Thought I'd update things with several of my fave LOs that I put together as a member of the CT for  Here's December 2011.....Enjoy!




Friday, December 30, 2011

Hello everybody!  Hope your Christmas or Hanukkah celebration was awesome and that you are gearing up for a fabulous 2012.

The incredible Jessica Sprague has teamed up with Becky Higgins to offer a digital Project Life - I know, I squealed when I heard it, too!

I have some friends who did Project Life in paper form...and it is an amazing album when you're all done.

CLICK HERE to go to the page to see all the digi loveliness.....I think the Cobalt collection may be my favorite....but that changes daily.

The whole Project life concept just calls to me - I love the idea of capturing the everyday and  I was struggling with what to do about this album.....P365 is just too structured and kinda kills the joy of creating for I thought about committing to a p52 - one LO per week using as many (or as few) pictures as I needed to get the job done.  Of course, special events might get their own LOs, but I love the flexibility (and lack of pressure that this approach provides).

So - anybody else up for it?  I have this fabulous list of prompts that have several ideas for each week - in fact, you *could* turn this list into a P365 if you were super-motivated.

Here's the scoop:

I'll post the prompts each Sunday (starting on Jan 1st) and I'll have a FaceBook Group that you can post your LOs, etc. to as well.

Hope to see you there!

It's July already?? When did THAT happen?

Ok - I admit it.  I love summer.  No - I adore summer.  You might ask why - since we are a homeschooling family that does so year-round - so summer isn't a time off for us.  I just love the heat, the clothes, the water, the food, all of it.  I love summer.

So - it's a total bummer that I tore my left hamstring about 10 days ago.  No swimming for me.  No running, no riding the jet ski at the lake.  Bummer.  No - I will NOT tell you how I did it...let's just say it was a less than graceful moment and we're moving on....

So - what to do with all this down time?  Well, how about digiscrap?  Yes!

Here are the results from the first few days of sitting around with ice on various body parts - don't laugh - I heard that!

My laid-back, happy-go-lucky kidlet & his fun 'do after a bath with Daddy.

Jodie Lee - Floral Beauty Brushes1 - coming soon!! EZ-PZ Template 09 - This Is Love (background, ribbon & stitches) LO inspired by Tiffany Tillman.

My whole face smiles when I see this LO.  Ware has always been our "smiley" baby.  All of his baby pictures - and I do mean ALL of them - have this fabulous contagious grin....and he still is that way 5 1/2 (don't forget the 1/2!) years later.

Through the years
Splendid Fiins - Evidence Date Stamps - coming soon!! Fleuriste Paper Pack Jessica Sprague Template+ 1.01 
Fonts: Traveling Typewriter; Georgia

Where have the years gone?  Hard to believe that Bennett and I have been married for 15 years...and have known each other for almost 20 - we cannot be that old!  Every day I find a new reason to fall in love with him.  However, there are few nights when I want to smother him with a pillow in his sleep.  Snoring is evil.

Hope you enjoyed the latest - I'll have quite a few more soon - 6 more weeks of this PT & restricted activity mess.  For the record - sit & be quiet is not one of my strengths.  You need somebody to be loud & slightly inappropriate?  I'm your girl.  Hey - we can't all be Sandra Dee.
