project life 2014 : weeks 43 – 44

November 12, 2014

Weeks 43 – 44 is from October 20 to November 2. I think this is one of my simplest spreads yet. I didn’t have much time to physically put it together so I did a little more digital work ahead of time (using Paislee Press templates and planning with the Project Life app). The only embellishments are a few stamps. I just adore this picture of the kids smiling at each other. The first week was a fairly normal week. Other than my standard “week in review” the only journaling I did was an update on Liam’s health. The second week was week in the life. I decided to just include two of my favorite photos from that week (the…

homemade gift ideas

November 10, 2014

I love the idea of homemade gifts, and even though I’ve pretty much given up on the idea for this year (I can’t do it all), I did do some research and brainstorming for some ideas. There is still time to make these happen if you’re up for it! Candles – making your own candles is actually really easy! I’ve done it following this tutorial. It doesn’t take long either. Or you could do a simple drugstore candle makeover. Dip dyed placemats – I’ve never done any of my own dyeing but I hear it’s pretty simple. These are so pretty!

week in the life 2014 : some thoughts on the process

November 6, 2014

Last week I decided to take part in the intense documentation project called week in the life that was started by one of my favorite memory keeping bloggers, Ali Edwards. Here are some thoughts on my first time taking part, along with some of my favorite photos from the week. Early morning list-making and coffee-drinking. She had just woken up. She is attached to this dog and blanket right now. / Liam at the doctor. Nebulizing. Bible study and nursing. A sticker Meredith gave me that I had forgotten was there. / Punching the code at daycare to pick up the kids. My current desk at work. Computer time while David was on kid duty. It was a gorgeous day…
