LIGHT : january

January 30, 2015

Necklace from this Etsy shop and I love it. I am one month into the year of living with the word “light,” and I wanted to share a bit about how this process is going for me. In our prompts this month (for the class run by Ali Edwards) we set intentions and there were some suggested categories to focus on, so that’s how I’m going to structure these update posts. spiritual what’s been going well : so far I have been keeping up with my scripture memory challenge (one verse every other week), volunteering to help out at church, being involved in our life group and my own personal Bible study. still weighing on me : here’s the thing. Being…

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!

project life 2014 : weeks 49 – 50

January 2, 2015

Happy Friday! The kids and I have had a fun (although lacking in sleep and too quick) trip to see friends and we are headed home today to settle back into routine. We have a busy January but after that I’m hopeful things will calm down! My memory-keeping projects are all still in progress. I’m on track with Project Life, but this weekend I need to wrap up 2014’s album and put together a title page for 2015. I am slowly working on my Week in the Life album, and I plan to share each day here as I complete it. Once that is done I’m going to work on my December Daily album. If it’s summertime before that one…

project life 2014 : weeks 47 – 48 (& a blog update)

December 10, 2014

Popping in to share a Project Life spread with you today. But before that, let me give you a little blog update… The season of life where I am able to post daily is over for the foreseeable future. Work is busy, Liam is mobile, and other personal projects need to take precedence when I do get spare time. So my aim is to post here 2-3 times per week, but it won’t be scheduled. You can expect similar content as always: thoughts on motherhood & life updates, tips for working moms, goal setting, memory keeping projects, creative pursuits, natural health topics, things I love, and thoughts on books & reading. Basically anything I’m up to or interested in. :)…

my finished handmade felt heirloom advent calendar

December 5, 2014

I finished this up last weekend after Thanksgiving, just in time! I may have an addiction to felt needlepoint. New favorite craft for sure. I call this an “heirloom” advent calendar because the materials are high quality and labored over by me with love so I am definitely forcing it on one of my kids when they grow up. :) I want to give another shout out to my mother-in-law for getting this for me way back in the spring or summer (an early Christmas gift!) so that I actually had time to make it for this year. I love it so much. If you want one, you can find them here. It requires basic needlepoint, embroidery, and sewing skills. Advanced…
