art journal / 1

July 31, 2014

I have been wanting to try art journaling for a long time now. I used to think I wasn’t artsy enough for it, but when I realized that it could be whatever I wanted it to be and I started seeing simple pages I loved (like this) I was in. I needed some kind of guidance or structure before I began, though. Eventually, as I was going through my Bible study and underlining quotes and verses, I realized that it was the perfect inspiration. I finally got a little extra time and decided to just go for it. I didn’t want to spend any money so I’m using a regular journal that I hadn’t written in yet. It is ruled…

project life 2014 : weeks 27 – 28

July 23, 2014

Today’s Project Life spread is from June 30 to July 13. I included an insert because I had too many photos, but here is the whole spread without it: And here it is with it. The front: The back: The insert was “summer” themed and I wrote a little about our Fourth of July. Back to the regular spread now. On the left hand side I wrote about curating my closet, Liam eating in the high chair, and Meredith potty training. I love the way this simple little card came out below. I originally had the entire 4×6 photo in there, but cutting it back to allow for some white space and journaling made a big difference. On the right…

project life 2014 : weeks 25 – 26

July 9, 2014

When I printed these photos I actually thought that it would be a pretty colorful spread, but in the end it turned out fairly neutral again. At this point I’m just going to embrace it because that is obviously my style! It’s the same with the way I dress. Last weekend I allowed myself to shop a bit for clothes and all I bought were whites, blacks, grays, and blues. Hey, it’s easy to put an outfit together that way! So anyway, this is from June 16 – 29. Regular weeks. My whole30 started, and I included a photo of what is basically my breakfast every single day. We went on a date! Hopefully we can do more of this!…

things i’m working on

July 2, 2014

I’m working on Liam’s stocking. It’s progressing very nicely and I don’t think I’ll have a problem finishing this summer. I’m working on getting 10,000 steps on my Fitbit each day. Without trying, I average 7500, depending on how busy we are at work. So to make my goal, I’ll probably have to add in a walk each evening. I’m working on upping my pumping output. For me that means more water and timely pumping sessions. What else can I do? I’m working on potty training Meredith. Actually it’s pretty much done, and it was quick & easy. I’ll share my “secrets” soon. I’m working on making it halfway through Lonesome Dove (the book) by July 13 for book club. It’s a long one so…
