Hello Project Life 2013!!

Well it is another year and we begin another round of Project Life. For those of you who have never tried, you should check it out.  Last year, I did fall behind and barely posted pages.  But this year I aim to improve.  I think I may post a few weeks at a time to make it easier on my schedule.

My Project LIfe 2013 cover!

This year I chose another We R Memory Keepers album. I tend to like the look and feel of them. I selected red because it just has the energy I feel for this year.

I also made a big decision to make my own journaling cards. I like the one’s Becky Higgins has made but I feel like I will be locked into their colors and some weeks, I have feel like they just don’t go well. I also thought it would be fun to use some of my stamps, washi tape and many other goodies that are crowding my craft room. So let ‘s see if  I make it through the year or if I cave and buy some cards. Perhaps I will mix some in with the ones I create. I am going to keep my options open and focus on fun and documenting because that is what it is all about.

I will post more pages soon some come on back with a cup of tea and relax.

Page Ingredients:

  • Simple Stories ‘Snap Polaroids’
  • Washi tape
  • Stamps (Cocoa Daisy exclusive)
  • Dear Lizzy Foam thickers ‘ Merry’
  • doily
  • Jillibean Soup Alphabeans ‘tart teal’
  • fiskars heart punch

Finding footprints

Hello Everyone! I thought it would be fun to share a photo I took yesterday when I came home from picking up the boys from school.

First let me say while I think that snow is beautiful to look at and there is nothing as pretty as the sparkle right after a snow fall. However, as I am getting older, I am not feeling so warm and fuzzy about that white stuff.

But despite my indifference, I still have a habit that I started long ago that keeps me finding snow fascinating.

Bird prints in the snow.


The snow allows me to see what animals travel along my yard throughout the day and evening.  I love trying to guess the bird or if it’s a cat or a squirrel. I even have started bringing the boys into the play and ask them what kind of animal left the tracks and what do they they were doing or going. It’s lots of fun to hear their responses.

This picture is of bird prints we found on one of our retaining walls in our yard. I had to get close up to make sure I captured the cute little prints.

So I guess I have to admit there is still a small part of me that still enjoys the white stuff!

Hope you have a blessed day!
