week in the life 2014 : monday in the album

January 14, 2015

Well two and a half months later and I’m finally putting together this album! Before I share more I have a few thoughts: >I love this project and definitely want to participate each year. I bought and used the kit, but had to put together my own album since they had sold out. This year I’m pretty sure I’m going to buy all of Ali’s kits and albums because I don’t have a huge stash of my own, I love her style, and having it on hand really helps me get it done. >I do hope that the official week in 2015 will be earlier in the year, because this was right before the holidays and there was just no…

2015 reading plans and goals

January 12, 2015

I feel like I’ve been talking a lot about plans and goals lately. I guess that’s normal around this time of year, so just call me cliché! I’m not done yet, either, so I hope you like this kind of thing. (Personally, I could read about other people’s goals and plans alllll day long, ha.) I want to read more this year. Last year I read 20 books which was a huge drop for me. Obviously it was a year of adjustment and that’s fine, but I’d still like to read more. I intend to do monthly book reports this year and hopefully there will be at least three books on each one. Here’s what I’m thinking: Reading challenge: First of…

starting a monthly photo series of the kids to serve as title cards in this year’s Project Life using these templates from Paislee Press. enjoying the extra time at home I’ve had this week due to Liam’s most recent illness (virus turned secondary bacterial sinus infection). putting the last of the Christmas decorations away. attempting to unsubscribe from the Madewell newsletter, because they send promotions every day and I’ve been unable to keep myself from buying these and these (but my unsubscribe attempts don’t work for some reason). drinking cafe mochas. researching what to make with fresh lemons since my  neighbor gave me a bunch she cut from her tree (thinking about trying this). planning Liam’s birthday party which is in just…

project life 2014 : weeks 51 – 52

January 8, 2015

Finished up 2014! Even though this time period included Christmas I didn’t even do an insert because I will be putting together a holiday minibook (eventually). I really just wanted to get this done, and I did. I definitely didn’t feel like doing an end page but I hated the look of the empty page protectors, so I did this. And now I’m thinking I might do something similar for my 2015 title page because I really don’t have time to get creative or take additional photos just for that. We’ll see! 0 Like

what i read : october to december 2014

January 6, 2015

I meant to post this last week, but totally forgot! So here’s the reading I did in the last three months of 2014, and tomorrow I’m going to talk more about my reading plans for this year. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart – I loved the friendship between the four main characters and they were each so well-drawn. The setting was a character in itself. I was really into the mystery aspect and the way hints were dropped along the way was well done. I didn’t try to guess the end so when the truth came out I had to reorient and then the book became even better to me. Hard not to immediately re-read. (4 stars) Attachments by…
