texas style council 2015 : i’m going!

November 13, 2014

I just had to devote an entire post to the fact that I’m planning to attend my first ever blog conference in March of 2015, Texas Style Council. Going to a blog conference is something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile. I really want to meet some people and learn some things! However, having little kids and budgeting constraints have prevented me from going until now. I actually know the founder of Texas Style Council! We met in Austin through a mutual friend many years ago and I’ve been following her online ever since. The conference took a hiatus last year and this year has been totally revamped. It’s not going to be one of those flashy things at…

project life 2014 : weeks 43 – 44

November 12, 2014

Weeks 43 – 44 is from October 20 to November 2. I think this is one of my simplest spreads yet. I didn’t have much time to physically put it together so I did a little more digital work ahead of time (using Paislee Press templates and planning with the Project Life app). The only embellishments are a few stamps. I just adore this picture of the kids smiling at each other. The first week was a fairly normal week. Other than my standard “week in review” the only journaling I did was an update on Liam’s health. The second week was week in the life. I decided to just include two of my favorite photos from that week (the…

household division of labor

November 11, 2014

Happy Tuesday, friends! For awhile I’ve been wanting to have some more discussions here about life issues. Just things that come up for me as a working mom, but that probably most people deal with. So let’s do that, let’s talk it out. Today I want to talk about household division of labor. I find homemaking and domestic routines fascinating. I am always trying to find more efficient and simpler ways to do things around the house so that we can enjoy the fun part of our lives more. I actually thought about analyzing this after I read Nora’s post almost two years ago, ha, but I’m just now getting around to it. This is how we do things at our place….

homemade gift ideas

November 10, 2014

I love the idea of homemade gifts, and even though I’ve pretty much given up on the idea for this year (I can’t do it all), I did do some research and brainstorming for some ideas. There is still time to make these happen if you’re up for it! Candles – making your own candles is actually really easy! I’ve done it following this tutorial. It doesn’t take long either. Or you could do a simple drugstore candle makeover. Dip dyed placemats – I’ve never done any of my own dyeing but I hear it’s pretty simple. These are so pretty! Stained letterpress block – I’ve been meaning to do this one for awhile. A five-minute, personalized project, perfect to…
