project life 2014 : weeks 39 – 40

October 15, 2014

Yay! Another spread that I am happy with. I’m still culling my photos so that I have more white space and journaling in each spread, and I’m loving it. I’ve also been using the Project Life app to plan and it is helping immensely! Next week I’m going to have a comprehensive look at it for you guys. On the left side we have a picture and story from my first 10k, a couple books I read, a classic #toddlerfashion, and just a plain ol’ cute pic of Liam and a pretty sky. I liked typing up some of my journaling in PSE this time. On the right side: the kids playing outside, at the toy store, journaling about our anniversary…

my first quilt FINISHED

October 14, 2014

Slow and steady wins the race. The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Better late than never.  All the cliches apply to the making of this quilt, but my favorite is: Better done than perfect. In 2013 I decided I would make a quilt. For Christmas I received this rotary cutting set and this pattern book. I had a hand-me-down sewing machine from David’s grandmother. I got it serviced and practiced a little (very little). I made a plan. I gave myself a year to do it, and broke it down month by month with manageable steps. Choose the size and design. Obtain fabric. Cut blue triangles. Cut cream triangles. Lay it out and stack the rows. Sew…

30 days of lists : days 21 – 30 (and what I thought of it)

October 7, 2014

Well 30 days of lists is over! Here are my last set of lists, followed by my thoughts on joining the challenge officially for the first time. So! This was a fun and easy journaling challenge. They run it every March and September with a different set of prompts. I’ve followed it in the past but never joined officially until now, because I didn’t want to pay for something I could just come up with by myself. And of course, you can always see the prompts once they are released, or go through the old ones. However, joining “officially” gave me access to the private blog and Facebook group. I checked this once a day. I didn’t get super involved,…
