I know I’ve mentioned before that I am not a fan of cold weather, winter, snow, any of that stuff. The shorter days can really get me down. But, there are a couple of things that keep me going through a lot of those days. One of those is my December Daily project. I just added a page here on the site for it and my cover page is done. I’ve also been working on some foundation pages so that I have it all ready to go when December starts. I’m trying to do a couple of pages a day, so that come December 1st, all I have to remember to do is take the photos. I talk a little bit about my process and other ways of going about it in this thread – DYD Sizes and Styles – at The Lilypad. I may come back one day soon and share a little more detail here. Everything I’ve used is from the Document Your December section of The Lilypad store. You can also check out what I’ve done in previous years in the December Daily section here on the blog.
For now, here’s my cover for this year:
And here is a sample page I did:
Are you doing a December Daily project this year? I’d love to see how you go about it!
I also want to share this absolutely gorgeous new release from Just Jaimee this week! The colors are stunning!!
I’ve got more goodness to share, so I’ll be back sometime this weekend! Thanks for looking and I hope you are enjoying your Friday night!
Ha I honestly did not think it had been almost a month since I last posted! Not quite sure what happened but it sure feels like I have been super busy every single day. Just dropping by today to share some fantastic new releases for this week!
I’m hoping to do some more updating soon, maybe this weekend! I am so excited to start planning my December Daily. It really helps keep me and my mind occupied during the cold dark days of winter. Thanks for looking! Peace, out…
Spring just keeps popping in here for a day and giving us a little taste and then runs off again. We had a winter with pretty much no snow and now we are getting ready for our second winter storm since the first day of Spring. I am not a fan. I am not a cold weather person. I do not like snow, especially if there is a chance I will have to drive in it. But I don’t reckon there is anything much I can do about it, so we bought a bunch of snacks and we’ll just hunker down for the weekend.
I know I haven’t been by here for a couple of weeks, but I have been trying to stay on top of a class that I’m taking this semester and do a little scrapping here and there. I wanted to make sure that I got here to share some amazing new releases this week.
And I also wanted to tell you about the amazing Retirement Sale going on at The Lilypad!! There are some gorgeous designs that are going, going, gone! Make sure you take a peek and get them while you can.
I’m going to do some PL catch up this weekend and get my Planner set up. It’s been awhile since I updated photos of it here. I hope that you all have a fantastic weekend! Until next time…peace, out… 🙂
Not so much here, but in life I guess I’m moving right along. I’m taking a class this semester on Google Classroom and Google Suite, so any and all spare time I have had has been spent on that. My new year plan for posting more regularly has kind of fallen by the wayside for right now. Maybe I need to stop thinking and planning and just do.
Anyway, I thought I’d stop by before bed time tonight and share a couple of new pages for this week.
And this page is using the new Perspective by River~Rose
I am working on this week’s pages, but other than that my PL is up to date. I have been going back and using some older JJ templates this year, instead of the Ready to Go pages. I am kind of missing them, but looking forward to a new look in my book I just had my 2017 book printed and I am loving going through it!! Here are the last couple of weeks:
Hopefully I’ll be back soon. I’m hoping to get a planner update done in the next couple of days!! Thanks for looking!!
Ever get sucked down them? I sure do! Just about every time I sit down at the computer to do one thing, I’m off on adventures looking up a thousand different things! And that’s why I never seem to get here like I intend to! I swear, I can be going to upload a layout and next thing I know I’m looking at phone cases or reading about missing people or any other random things, but I never remember how I got there haha.
But anyway, I just wanted to pop in tonight and share some amazing new releases out this weekend and get caught up on posting my MOC layouts!
You can check out my page – MOC Pages 2018 – to catch up on all things MOC!! It’s hard to believe that it’s almost over! I am caught up through today and looking forward to the last three days of challenges!
I’m telling you, Etc. by Danyale and Little Butterfly Wings make the most beautiful babies!! They have this one out this week called Dear Karma 2: Innercircle
And it’s time for an amazing new Storyteller from Just Jaimee!! This is the February 2018 Kit
River~Rose has a lovely new kit out called Two Hearts today that I used for 2 pages of my kiddos. The first uses an older template – Mix it Up Vol 2 – by Crystal Livesay, and the second uses a brand new template – Shapin’ Up: February by Crystal Livesay and Jimbo Jambo Designs.
If I am not babysitting, I may try to swing by tomorrow and do a planner update. I haven’t done one of those for awhile! I’m out for now! Thanks for looking and I hope you have an amazing upcoming week!! Peace, out…
We’ve had a couple of snow days this week, and while surprise days off are nice, I am just not productive when it is cold at all. I don’t want to do anything except be huddled under a blanket. I’m still working on getting my organization for the new year together, but not have much luck as of yet. I will blame part of it on the madness that is MOC! So much going on and that is where I spend the majority of my time. I do love it though and that’s the main reason I’m stopping by tonight. I wanted to share the last few days of pages that I just got uploaded!
So fun!! My MOC pages are always ones that become some of my favorites for the year! Even the ones that stretch and challenge me a bit! It’s called Month of Challenges for a reason!
I need to get a few other places updated tonight, but I’ll be back to share some new goodness this weekend!! Hope you have a wonderful Friday ahead! Peace, out…
Relaxing, catching up, couching. That’s what Sundays are for. I haven’t gotten to the couching part yet, because DH is hogging it up! I’m going to kick him off of there soon!! But, I thought I’d take the time that I have and come by here and share some layouts for the week. It’s not to late to catch a lot of these awesome designs on sale!
I’m still playing along with MOC at The Lilypad! I’m caught up to today and will try to get that layout done after some couching 🙂 Here’s what I’ve done since I last posted:
I’ve been working on my pages as I have a chance. I absolutely love this project every year. This is my 5th year doing it and I enjoy it so much. I love looking back on past years as well. My photos are not all Christmas related, they are mostly just a glimpse in to what was going on that day, no matter how small a thing. I thought I’d run by tonight and share what I have done so far. I have yesterday and today mostly done, and hope to get them uploaded tomorrow but here is my cover and days 1-8 🙂
The QR code on the last one is to a recording I did of C’s concert. My phone cut off before the very end. One day soon I will have my Life in Pockets updated as well hahaha. Hope everyone is having an amazing weekend! Peace, out…
A lot like Christmas!! Especially if you have been over at The Lilypad this weekend. The designers have knocked it out of the park this week with all their amazing Document Your December creations! This is one of my very favorite projects of the whole year! I try really hard to have all the pages mostly made before December starts so that all I have to do is add photos and journaling. I did a cover pages and several other pages this past week, so I have a good start! The photos it my layouts here are from last year, but I will redo them when the time comes with this year’s photos!
I’m starting to feel so festive hahaha
But there are some other fantastic creations out there this week! MEG Designs is the featured designer at The Digital Press. Her whole store is on sale 30% off and she has some beautiful products!
Also at The Digital Press is this gorgeous kit by River~Rose
And last but not least, is this gorgeous collection by Sahin Designs
I’m going to spend the rest of the weekend working on PL for this week and trying to get some more DYD layouts ready to go. December will be here before we know it!!
One day this space will become habit for me. Just when I think I’m on a roll, life throws a curve ball and I’m behind again. This time it’s for the best of reasons, though. I have a beautiful new grandson! He is absolutely precious and I adore him! I got the call on my way to work last Friday, so we spent the weekend either at the hospital or at football. This week it is raining and chilly, so I am spending some time getting caught up on all the neglected things. Football was cancelled and I was finally able to go get my hair done.
I’ve uploaded all my layouts for the last few weeks to My Scrap Pages, but I’m not going to share them all here today. Go check them out if you’d like…credits are on each page.
