Simply Monday…

Mondays are not really so simple for me right now. My son, a friend, and I are taking a beginner sign language course and the tech center here in town. We are on week three and I’m really enjoying it. Signing is something I have always wanted to be really good at, but have never taken the time to really learn it. I know a few signs here and there that I have picked up over the years working in Special Education, but I would love to be fluent. I know that this course alone won’t do it for me, but it’s a start!

I wanted to swing by here today and share my Simple Scrapper layouts for October. I love being a part of the team at Simple Scrapper.

Simply Monday…

But not just any Monday. This is the Monday that we start adding 30 minutes on to our school day because of all the crappy snow days we had UGH. We have to be there 15 minutes earlier and stay 15 minutes later for the next 6 weeks! They are adding 5 minutes on to each class period. I’m not really sure what they think it’s going to accomplish, but I guess it looks good on paper time-wise. Oh well…we only have 7 or 8 weeks left anyway. I think I can, I think I can!

Backing it up…

I’m getting ready to back up everything on my computer from February! I’m a few days behind, but it’s still early in March. I do this every month, without fail! I have come too close to losing everything a couple of times, so now I am dedicated to backing up at the end of every month. I have two EHD’s where my photos and scrapbook pages go to live. I actually have 3, but one is full. My scrapbook kits get backed up to my big EHD. I need another back up for them as well. I would hate to lose them all, but my photos and pages are what mean the most to me.

But before I get to that, I wanted to swing by and share a few more pages!!

River~Rose and Grace Lee teamed up this week for an awesome new kit called New Chapter by River~Rose and Grace Lee and I also used this template set – Stand By Me by Crystal Livesay and Two Tiny Turtles

A new month also means new layouts for Simple Scrapper!! Being a part of Simple Scrapper has helped me focus on purposeful ways as far as my scrapbooking goes, and in other areas!

Simply Saturday…

I absolutely love Saturdays! There is something so calm and peaceful about them…no rushing around, no stress. Even time to come here and blog!

I have never been one to do much with a “one little word” for the year. I mean, I usually start the year thinking about something I would like to focus on, but I’ve never taken it much farther than that. This year, I decided that I really need to not only choose a word, but really focus on what it means in my life. Over the Christmas Break, I was watching some Instagram stories from people I follow and they were talking a lot about a #lighttheworld campaign. It really made me stop and think and ultimately led to me choosing Light as my word for this year. The more I thought about it, the more it made sense to me in several different ways. I’m going to spend some time jotting down all the ways that light impacts my life and my hope is to blog regularly about how I am focusing on light in my life.

To start things off, I created this page for River~Rose Designs this week, who created an amazingly perfect kit!! It’s called Be A Light:

Light
Be A Light by River~Rose Edgy and Angled by Crystal LIvesay

Among the things that I have had in my thoughts regarding light are ways in which I can lighten up in my life. Being a part of Simple Scrapper has helped me focus on some of those ways as far as my scrapbooking goes, and in other areas! The Simple Scrapper Premium Membership provides amazing content and support for being purposeful and productive without getting bogged down.

Simply Monday…

I know, right! Two days in a row. I can probably thank a snow day for that. We have another one tomorrow. There goes MLK Day and Presidents Day. Ugh, I hate snow. I would so much rather have these days when it’s nice outside and I can go out of the house without the air hurting my face. But it’s where I am right now, so I guess I’ll just enjoy what I get.

I was sitting here catching up on a few things and realized that I haven’t shared the layouts that I did for Simple Scrapper this month. I love being a part of the team at Simple Scrapper.

Simply Friday…

I have really come to enjoy the simplicity of Friday. No football practice. No homework. No cooking. No running. Friday evenings have quickly become my favorite! It’s really the only evening of the whole week with nothing to do. So, tonight I thought I would take a minute to share the layouts that I did for Simple Scrapper this month.

I didn’t get a whole lot of scrapping done this week, but I did get to play with this gorgeous new kit by River~Rose called Autumn Evening and it’s on sale this weekend!

I’m going to spend the rest of the evening getting caught back on on PL and playing in my planner. Hopefully I will be back tomorrow to share some of that 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!! Peace, out…

 

Simply Tuesday…

I think I’ve said before that Tuesdays don’t get much fanfare. Just a day, unlike Monday when everyone is bummed, or Wednesday when everyone is all about humping, or Thursday and Friday when the weekend is calling. Tuesdays are just kind of there. Not as bad as Monday, but not so good either. Simply Tuesday. I’m starting to get adjusted to simple. I haven’t done a whole lot since school was out. Going from 100mph to 0 is tough on an old lady. But I’m finally getting in the groove and getting some things done.
