day in the life // girls’ day off

November 16, 2012

This year I decided that it’s good for my health and sanity to take a random day off work every month or so. Sometimes I need those days to be “me” days where I still put Meredith in daycare and have some time to myself. But other times I want some extra time with her, and that’s what I did yesterday. 7:00 a.m. / we’re up and David’s up and we see him off to work shortly. 8:00 a.m. / Meredith still has a cough and congestion so before we do anything else we take a steamy shower/bath. Her favorite thing is to fill a cup up with running water and dump it out over and over. 8:30 a.m. /…

project life 2012 : week 37

November 12, 2012

Still catching up on Project Life! For awhile now I’ve been combining two weeks into one spread, but since I knew I’d want an entire spread for our week’s trip to Kansas I went ahead and did a whole spread for the week before that too. And thus we have October 7 – 13. I love that I’m keeping it simple now because I finished this and another spread in a single naptime one Sunday. (Funny how I measure my life in Meredith’s naps now.) There wasn’t too much to journal in this week because it was just a normal one with some everyday photos. I had one pocket to fill so I turned to my list of good things…

introducing book of lists

November 5, 2012

Happy Monday! Today I’m excited to tell you about my new little paper crafty project that is cute, fun, flexible, and ready for you to join in on if you so choose (and I would love it if you do). Because I’m suuuper original I’m calling it the Book of Lists because that is essentially what it will be. Just get yourself a book – make a minibook out of chipboard and binder rings like I did or grab a blank journal, a spiral notebook, scrapbook, anything of the sort – make sure it has some empty pages, and you’re ready to go. Every month there will be a topic for a list, and the object is to craft it…

project life 2012 : weeks 35 – 36

October 31, 2012

Happy Halloween! I procrastinated on finding Meredith’s costume this year, but when I stopped by Old Navy yesterday they had a fish costume in the perfect size on sale for $6 so my laziness has been rewarded. We are going trick-or-treating with my nephews this evening so pictures are to come. In the meantime, I’m getting closer to caught up on sharing my Project Life spreads with you! Here we have September 23 to October 6. Think back with me. Another simple layout – I am finally getting into my groove. I just need to remember to take more pictures! One of my best friends, Megan, came to visit briefly and the picture I placed right next to the date…
