I got my PL all caught up for this year, even including this week!! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me! Last week, I was 10 weeks behind. I have never been that far behind! Ok, so there is one missing week. I don’t know what it is about September, but I am sorely lacking photos in September every single year! I think it has to do with getting back in the swing of work and school. I will go back and finish that page when I figure out what I’m going to do about the lack of photos…maybe a lot of journaling! But for now, I fee complete and ready to move on from here!
You can check out all my pages HERE, but I’ll share the ones I’ve done for October
Now on to all the other things on my to-do list!! Hope you all have a great upcoming week! Thanks for looking, and until next time, peace out…
I’m still a little behind on Project Life for this year, but I hope to be caught up in no time. I just thought I’d drop by today and share the most recent pages I’ve done. It’s so fun to look back through the years and see what was going on at various stages. Some things stay the same and some things change so much!! You can check out my entire album with credits here – Life in Pockets 2018.
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!!
It’s actually been a really quiet calm Sunday, and I really needed that!! Yesterday we had to be at a salute to the military and first responders during the football games and then C and I went to the movies with A and M last night. We went to see IT in IMAX. Really cool, if you haven’t seen it. But I still love Tim Curry as Pennywise!
Anyway, I thought while I was having some quite time I would come by here and share a few layouts. I didn’t scrap any new releases this week because it was so hectic, but I did upload a couple that I had done earlier.
This first one is done with for Amber LaBau’s blog template challenge! I also used it for the Random Challenge at The Lilypad. I used Wonderful You by Amber LaBau. It’s a fantastic template and you can get it for free on her blog!
This page uses Amber LaBau’s featured product for September – In the Orchard. If you create a page with this kit by September 30th, you have a chance to win $10 to her store! You can check out the details on her blog!
I’ve already scrapped a couple of pages for next week, so I will have something new to share then!
I got caught up on another week of PL today, too! Here is Week 35
That will wrap things up for me today! Hope you all have had a wonderful weekend!! Peace, out…
It’s been a really low key Labor Day around here. I did some laundry, mopped the floor, and took a nap…perfect. I was also able to scrap a few pages and print some stickers.
I just thought I’d drop by and share my PL pages for the last few weeks. I still have the spread for this week to do and I’m all caught up again, but it will probably have to wait until next week.
All of my pages for this year use Just Jaimee’s Ready to Go pages!! They are a life saver for me. All I have to do is add photos and journaling and I’m done. Sometimes I change things up a bit, but if I’m in a bind, I don’t have to. They are seriously amazing!!
And while I’m here… I’m going to try to stay more of top of sharing my planner pages. For those I use Just Jaimee’s Story Planner kits. They are amazing as well. I’ve been printing the stickers for my desk planner and also making a pocket planner for my purse using all the contents of these kits.
And that’s it from me for today. I hope you have all had a fantastic Labor Day weekend and the upcoming week treats you well!! 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 thought we were going to get off easy this year with Halloween being on Saturday. Not so much. Instead, it turned in to a two day ordeal and 3x the make-up. C had to be ready for his Halloween party at school on Friday, and I played with some make-up on myself. Then, right after school, we re-did the make-up and went to work with A at the Rescue Squad’s haunted house. It was a lot of fun, but made for a really long day. We didn’t get home until about midnight. We did make-up again on Saturday for trick-or-treat. I have had my fill of candy :p
Today, we went to mom’s to celebrate my birthday a couple of days early. My sister, her husband, and one of her daughters and her husband came. But the best part was having all 3 of my kids, my daughter-in-law, and my granddaughter all together. We are so seldom any more it seems. Having grown children is different for sure. We are supposed to go out to dinner on Tuesday for my actual birthday. And Thursday is parent/teacher conferences, which means staying at work until 7. Going to be a long week!
Now to update some scrap pages from this weekend… there’s still time to catch them on sale if you hurry!
And I caught up on a couple of weeks worth of my Life in Pockets.. All using Pocket Life ’15 – October Collection by Traci Reed and 365Unscripted: Plastic Stitched Grids by Traci Reed. I am still a little behind, but not too far.
I am also having a go at at mini gratitude album for November using 4×6 Photo Templates by Paislee Press
Starting on some 2016 Calendar Pages thanks to some fabulous new releases from MEG Designs
I will make a gallery somewhere for them. Hope you all have a great first week of November! Peace, out…
Yeah, so it’s been a couple of weeks and yeah, same ole busy, busy, busy. I am taking a class this semester and, every little bit of weekend time that I’ve had, I’ve spent working on stuff for the class. It’s interesting stuff, if you like classes on teaching methods, but between that and the usual spring IEP, paperwork, testing, etc, I don’t have much “free” time. We have a 4 day weekend going on right now. That is the extent of our “Spring Break”. I am so envious of those who get a whole week off, but we are on the countdown to the end of the year! I’m also tackling a pretty big project in my time off…painting all my kitchen cabinets. They’ve needed an update for a long time. I got about half way through yesterday and will probably get the other half tomorrow. Today, we are going to color eggs and go to mom’s for dinner.
We got C all signed up for baseball a couple of weeks ago and he had try outs last week. We heard from the manager of the team yesterday and he will get to be #45 (Michael Jordan’s baseball number). Their team is the Giants and we have our meet and greet on Tuesday evening.
I haven’t had a chance to see it in person yet, but M now has a house of her own! I have informed her that she now must come and get all of her stuff haha. I’m dreaming of a craft room! But all of that will probably have to wait until summer, when I have the time to do it.
I have managed to get in some scrapping the last couple of weeks, and pretty much keep up with my weekly spreads. I’ve updated both galleries, but here are some of the pages I’ve managed to squeeze in…
Thanks for having a look and hope everyone has a happy and blessed Easter! Peace, out…
What an awesome day! This has to be one of my most favorite days of the whole year…Daylight Savings Time! I love the extra daylight in the evening. I just have so much more energy when I have more sunlight in my life. I get so lethargic once the sun goes down, and when that happens right after I get home from work, it’s really rather depressing.
But I didn’t really come back today to sing the praises of DST, I wanted to share my newest Life in Pockets pages. I am keeping up fairly well so far. I still have this past week to do, but hopefully I’ll get that done later today. C has basketball practice and I have to shop for my mother’s birthday, but other than that I don’t have much else to do. Thankfully, my morning does not involve shoveling or chipping ice!!
For Week 9, I used all things Valorie Wibbens – For Like Ever Papers, For Like Ever Journal Cards, and Sprinkles V33…all at The Lilypad.
I’ve added them to my Life in Pockets page, so everything there should be up to date! I’m on my way to work on some pages for releases coming up this week. Hope everyone has a fantastic Sunday!! Peace, out….
Yeah, played out, I know! Wednesday has another name around here…just plain ole trash day. That’s how I gauge the days of the week..by what has to be done on certain days. The trash doesn’t really run on Wednesday, but around 6am on Thursday, so out it goes on Wednesday night. And for the record, taking the trash out when it’s bitterly cold really sucks! We also had basketball practice today, getting ready for the game tomorrow. C’s team is undefeated so far! Another busy week. I went to have my nails done yesterday and I get my hair done Friday for the first time since A’s wedding! My roots are baaaaad. There are seriously so many days that I wish I would just go gray already. I’m going to think of them as my natural highlights and let it go. But so far I have only had 2 or 3 here and there.
But I didn’t come here to blab about trash or basketball or hair. I am just swinging by to update my Project Life pages. Four weeks in and keeping up so far. Traci Reed’sPocket Life ’15: January Collection is just amazing and has made the pages come together so easily. Here’s my week 4 (The Week 4 title is by One Little Bird and the templates are Traci’s 365Unscripted.
So far I am keeping up with the 2 page spreads…we’ll see how long it continues 🙂 I will be back in a day or two to share all the awesome new releases that I got to play with this week! There’s some good stuff!! Until then…peace, out!
