project life 2013 : weeks 27 30 (july)

August 26, 2013

I am finally finished putting together the spread for July. Im so behind and Im not loving doing it this way. The first half of July was still first trimester haziness and then towards the end I emerged from that and began to feel better, but we were super busy. Davids grandmother passed away so we had a lot of family stuff going on, and Meredith had her birthday and party. So far in August Ive been feeling great (hence the blogging Ive been able to do) but its taking awhile to get all areas of my life on track like they used to be. The scrapbooking schedule is not a priority, in other words. So here it is. There

project life 2013 : weeks 22 26 (june)

July 15, 2013

For awhile there the last thing I wanted to do was work on this project. I barely took pictures or notes, which is why this single spread encompasses five weeks; the end of May and all of June. Im totally fine with that and just happy to get anything down. I put this together in two sessions: one to get the basic layout and papers in place, and two to add journaling and finish up. So this is from May 27 to June 30. Not a lot happened other than finding out Im pregnant and getting through the days. Other than one picture of a picnic with a friend, these are all updates about Meredith and journaling. When I first

project life 2013 : weeks 20 21

June 7, 2013

This is from May 13-26, and I really love how it turned out. During the first week David was out of town so Meredith and I were in survival mode. He sent me a photo of himself by the Mississippi River which I was so happy to include. The 46 journaling card is all about our experience with him gone. The 34 journaling card includes other little things that happened during the week. I took this photo of Meredith and I to send David while he was gone and I love it. On the right side we have an assortment of other things that happened during this time. Cousins eating sno-cones, a story about coming home from work on Saturday

list 7 : id rather be doing

June 3, 2013

Its time for Book of Lists, and this months topic is Id rather be doing. I imagined myself working, or doing something unpleasant, and thought of all the things I could be doing instead. Some of them are fantasy and some are realistic. relaxing in Hawaii with David cuddling Meredith reading a great book working on a craft or creative project visiting my friends across the country hiking, biking, or some other outdoor activity drinking coffee and browsing blogs I am still pretty terrible at taking Instax pictures (probably because I dont do research or practice that often) but its still fun. In this picture is a map of Kauai, Hawaii where David and I went on our honeymoon. Next

project life 2013 : weeks 18 19

May 24, 2013

I am still so happy to be keeping up with this project. As I was taking these photos Meredith was looking through last years album. She came across a picture of herself wearing her favorite jacket and she pointed at it squealing, my jacket! (although it sounds more like muh shackee!). It was incredibly cute and made me so happy to be keeping these memories in a way that she can already appreciate. These weeks I had a lot of photos. They included my day in the life plus Mothers Day, and apparently I was picture happy during that time as well. I had to seriously edit which ones I included because I wanted to leave space for journaling. I
