I LOVE THIS PICTURE! I just had to share it :-)

Thursday, January 19, 2012

Yes, I have jumped on the Project Life band wagon. But, I am going to do it my way. I am using a mixture of the divided page protectors along with standard 12x12 ones. I tried it with just the divided ones and then I tried with just 12x12 pages and I didn't like either. So, a combo of the two is what I will use and I love it. Above is week 1and week 2 is currently on my desk ready to be completed. What I love about this project is it is forcing me to get out my camera more and really focus in on the little things in life.

 My day in 12 photos.
My hope is that on the 12th day each month i take 12 photos. We shall see if I can keep up with this.  
Good morning its time for coffee.
Its starting to snow, we are supposed to get 4-6 inches by the end of the day.
 Time for breakfast for Livie.
 Grocery shopping.
 Gracie finished her beautiful autobiography.
We met her at school to celebrate
Nap time.
 Its still snowing.
 Id like to scrapbook...but its just one big mess on my table.
 Trucks work best on hard wood floors.
 I love her crazy hair when she takes out her bows.
 I dislike folding socks! I think I will head back to the scrapbook table.

2011 December Daily
Is it Spring?

Last week when we had a tiny bit of snow it made one little boy very happy. He played outside for hours in the course of the two day time span that the snow stayed in my yard. There was not much there to play with but he made due. Now this week he has no snow anymore and it is almost 50 outside. 49 degrees according to the weather app on my phone to be exact. While I am relishing in the no snow factor this season there is one little boy who is really hating it. He asked me today if it was spring. When I replied with a no, but it sure does feel like it, he got a little weepy.

Meanwhile I am plugging away at getting my house tidy, finishing up that December Daily that has become a thorn in my side and starting on my very first Project Life Album. Crafty projects keep me sane. I have many more I'm working on and look forward to their completion so I can post them soon.

 Just so you know I'm Real

I try really hard to keep my blog on the positive and focus and all that is good in my life. But, that leaves a lot of me out. I bet that there is a lot of "me" that some of you out there can relate to so I am letting go for a minute and giving you some reality in my life that isn't so super! Below you will find pictures of our playroom and our island in the kitchen. After all the gifts were open and the kids were home for a week my house got a little out of hand. I am not even sure were to put all this new stuff. My scrapbook table is even worse. It looks like a December daily explosion. I am extremely anxious to get myself dug out of this mess so I can get to crafting more. I hope that it will get cleaning up soon, but in all honesty it will probably take me a while to get it done. I will do a little each day until it is all back in order. It gets me wondering How do others do it? How do they keep it all under control around and after the holidays? Are there lots of people out there like me or are there more people that can keep it all together no matter what gets thrown their way? Just makes me wonder. I would like to think that the "me" type people are the norm but its the ones that keep it all together that just talk about it more.
