project life 2012 : weeks 25 – 26

August 2, 2012

I combined the last two weeks into one spread again because I really wanted to get caught up. Most of this was centered around Meredith turning one. This isn’t the primary spot that I’m documenting her birthday (there will be a blog post about her party next week, a scrapbook we made, her baby book, and her birthday book) which is why I didn’t do an insert. Here we have one of her 12-month-old pictures and updates, a movie ticket stub from the date David and I went on, a photo of M. on her actual birthday at dinner with David’s family, a clipped-in Instax photo of us with my uncle who was in town, and a cute picture from…

project life 2012 : weeks 20 – 24 (& what’s been up with us)

July 25, 2012

Hey there. I have so many things to write about and share here, but let’s get caught up first, shall we? A lot of different small-ish factors converged at once to bring me to the point where I had to take a break from blogging until things calmed down. The tipping point came when we had to cancel our cable and Internet temporarily, but we are back up and running again and life has generally resumed its former normality. In the meantime I’ve mostly been keeping up with Project Life, so I thought a good way to recap what’s been going on with us would be to share my spreads. Here we go. Week 20 (June 10 – 16) This…

project life 2012 : weeks 18 – 19

June 12, 2012

I’m totally caught up, so exciting! I had lots of fun the past two weeks with some new supplies. I love that I feel justified buying things since I know I will actually use them. Choosing what I want is half the fun, too. Week 18: As I was putting this week together I thought of it as more of a neutral color scheme, but looking at it here I see that it still has some vibrancy to it. I like that. We’ve been going to yet another new church for a few weeks now, so I included one of their cards (bottom left). The photo on the bottom right illustrates how Meredith has discovered cabinets and my life is…

project life 2012 : weeks 14 – 17

May 31, 2012

As you can see, I got way behind again. Oops. But now I am caught up! So it’s all good. Week 14: Super simple week. I got some new washi tape so I played with it on the date card. Also got a scalloped circle punch that I used for some journaling. The little cartoon nurse is from a card a coworker made me. The bottom right picture shows the nursery after Meredith finishes playing in it, which is something we do a lot. The pictures here are mostly from a weekend. Visiting a book store, going running, Meredith being fascinated by the toilet, the book I finished, completed cross stitch project, the May photo a day list (that I…

project life 2012 : weeks 12 – 13

May 9, 2012

I’m not completely caught up – still haven’t really started last week, although I do have the pictures printed – but I did power through the previous two weeks so here they are, before I get too far behind in sharing! Week 12: Week twelve had a brighter color scheme than is my norm. I like it though. I do try to keep each spread somewhat unified in terms of colors and feel, although it doesn’t always turn out that way. Here I was going for deep pink, orange, yellow, and blue. The weekly quotes are kind of getting hard to find! I like them to be on the subject of love, life, and home mostly, because that’s what my…
