Just doing a bit of catching up today and some planning for what’s to come. I didn’t realize that I hadn’t been here for a couple of weeks, even though I’ve been updating my Scrap Pages.
I’ll start by sharing this week’s pages
I’m hoping to get started tomorrow on some new things and updates on some old things and basically just do better about keeping up. I need to work on scheduling a few posts in advance and on scheduling a set time to do that.
I have a couple of PL pages to finish so that is all caught up. I’m feeling determined to get it done this time. But tonight…I’m tired lol So, I’m just going to leave it at this and I’ll be back! Thanks for stopping by! Peace, out…
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…
It’s Friday!! Of course it hasn’t been much of a work week for me! We went to school on Wednesday on a 2 hour delay, and have been off ever since due to the extreme cold. Most of that time for me has been spent babysitting my water pipes that like to freeze up when it gets too cold. My poor hairdryer is worn out! I think I am really craving routine though. I’m having a tough time structuring my day and spend too much time getting lost in rabbit holes online.
But, I have done some scrapping because…BYOC and MOC! The colors in this month’s BYOC at The Lilypad are so gorgeous! Here are the pages I’ve done with it:
And I am keeping up with MOC so far! If you haven’t joined in, you really should…it’s a lot of fun and community spirit!
I’m hoping to pick up my big camera some more starting tomorrow and get to work on my PL for 2018. I have a start on it but not sure I’m happy. I need to think on it haha.
Hoping to have more to share soon. Have a wonderful weekend!! Peace, out…
Wow, I didn’t actually realize how long it had been since I posted here. I honestly think the whole month of December was a blur! I have thought about it quite a bit, just never made the commitment to sit down and post. I’ve spent the last day or so reorganizing everything, creating new pages for the new year and coming up with ideas to get me posting here more often. We’ll see if it sticks!
I finished up my Life in Pockets for 2017 and you can see it all HERE. Well, all but one week I am finishing up. I’m not sure why I got stuck on that week, but I’ll insert it when it’s done. I also started my Life in Pockets for 2018. I have the cover done and will start on pages next weekend. I’m excited for a new year.
I also started and finished Document Your December for 2017 and you can see that HERE. I only went through the 25th because honestly we haven’t done a whole lot since then.
I’m not going back and add all the layouts I’ve done in December. I’m just far too lazy. But I hope to keep up better from now on. I plan to add the blog to my list of layout upload places and that should make it easier :).
And if you’re looking for some excitement – It’s MOC time at The Lilypad! 31 days, 31 challenges! If you complete them all you get a $20 gift certificate to The Lilypad and a chance at a Polly spot! It’s a sweet gig, I tell ya! Under my scrap pages, I added a section just for my MOC layouts! I love participating and stretching myself out of my comfort zone! It’s always exciting to see the challenges pop up every day! If you haven’t signed up, you really should! It’ll be fun, I promise!
Ok… I’m out for now. Just wanted to post a little update and get myself on track! Hope to be back soon! Until then, peace, out…
So yeah, it’s been awhile. We’ll just say that life happens and this time it was mostly football season. It consumed my every evening and every weekend since July. It all came to an end after last weekend when they lost out in the playoffs. We then spent Monday and Tuesday trying out for basketball. He didn’t make the team, but it was a really good experience for him. Anyway, I finally finding a little time to catch up on a few things. I got my Scrap Pages updated with all of the layouts since my last visit and I’m working on catching up with my Life in Pockets spreads.
I only really got one page done for this week and it was with Just Jaimee’s November Storyteller Collection. If you are not a subscriber, you are missing out on some fabulous designs and some awesome add-ons!!
I’m going to head out for tonight, but since I have my evenings back now, I hope to get here a lot more often. Until next time…peace, out….
Oh wow, it’s been a while since I was this glad to see Friday come!! Can I be real for a second? I love what I do, really, but weeks like this really test my sanity. I’m not sure if there was just something in the air or what, but the kids have been out there…like, way out there! I’m exhausted. But it’s Friday, there was no football practice, and I’m chilling in my PJ’s and hanging out online while I listen to the 12 year old yelling at a video game. Yep, he’s out there, too…wherever “there” is. I would almost swear it’s a full moon, but I know it’s not. Anyway, I thought I’d swing by and share my pages for this week. There’s some awesome new stuff in the stores and you don’t wanna miss getting it while it’s on sale!
Just Jaimee has an amazing Add-on to the September Storyteller called Hello Autumn. It is so gorgeous!!
I am totally in love with Friday Night Lights by ForeverJoy Designs. I seriously could scrap with this one for days with all the football photos I have! These are from the Jason Witten Football Camp that C went to this summer.
And I absolutely adore Happening Now by River~Rose! Such a beautiful kit!! I paired it with some fantastic new templates from Crystal Livesay – Last Days of Summer. This is my little grandson waving at me as he pushes his stroller around the football practice field.
I have some catching up to do on PL and I hope to get that done after football games tomorrow. This week has been so crazy that my planner is laying in front of me completely blank and empty. No stickers or even any writing. It looks so sad. I’m going to have to get on that as well. So, that’s it for me today! Hope you all have a fantastic 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…
This is one particularly happy Thursday!! You gotta love a great four day weekend!! I’m telling you, no one really knows what it’s like inside a school on the first week back with students after summer break. I’m exhausted as I know all of my teacher friends are. I really need this weekend to get myself back on track and feel like I am with it again! The best part today was when they cancelled football practice and I got to come home and grab a nap!
If you weren’t aware, it’s BYOC at The Lilypad!! I didn’t get to play as much as I wanted to, but I swear I seriously love each one more than the last! Here are a couple of pages that I did manage to get done last night:
And just because I didn’t get here last week to share my pages, here are a couple that I did with some amazing designs!
And now I am off to try to do a little catch up on PL and hit the bed kind of early. I’m still pretty tired and I’m ready to get started tomorrow! Until next time, peace, out…
I can’t decide if I am busy all the time or not really doing anything at all. This summer is flying by and I am down to 2 more weeks until school starts. Part of me doesn’t mind it. I start to crave adult interaction. But part of me wishes I had a little more time to finish all the things I wanted to do. But it’s coming, like it or not. I am not going to complain about the babysitting this summer. These days are short and I will cherish this time with him always. I’m sure I will miss him when he is not with me all day. Football practice has started again, so we are spending 2 hours every day, 5 days a week at the practice field and this is our last free weekend before the games begin. Things are about to get crazy! I’m working on a plan to be more organized with my daily to-dos. We’ll see how it pans out!!
If you haven’t been by The Lilypad to check out this month’s BYOC, you really should, like now, before the sale ends. The colors are fantastic and the designers just continue to outdo themselves! I actually got a few pages done with it:
River~Rose has a beautiful new kit this weekend – Home is a Feeling – and you can still catch it on sale as well:
And here are a couple of pages that I didn’t by to share from last week:
I’m only one week away from being caught up on my Life in Pockets, so I’ll be back to share that. I also have another project that I did last week and want to share. Until next time….Peace, out…
