Things I'm Working On

October 22, 2014


I'm working on preparing for Week in the Life beginning next Monday by gathering supplies and compiling a list of photos I might like to capture, and things I want to be sure to record during the week.

I'm working on not sweating the small stuff, which is actually turning out to be quite difficult.

I'm working on being more patient with DJ and remembering that he's still so little and doesn't understand a lot of what he does and why he cannot do it.

I'm working on getting myself back into the habit of writing every day as Nanowrimo approaches. This will be my eleventh year writing, and coming off of my win last year, I'm hopeful that I can give it a good shot again next month.

I'm working on organizing my scrapbooking stash, and using up what I have before purchasing anything new (with the exception of the binder and page protectors for Week in the Life). I have so much stuff, some of which I won't ever use, so I have been organizing everything into piles and will be mailing some out to friends around the States to use. I love that nothing will go to waste.

I'm working on keeping the kitchen table clean. It seems to be the dumping ground for everything and I really can't stand how cluttered it makes the room look.

I'm working on my knitted blanket, mitered square by mitered square.

Project Life 2014 | October Two

October 20, 2014


This October 2 spread covers the week of Oct 6 - 12. A lot of cool stuff happened this week, most notably my husband's 20th high school reunion bar night, and the start of my (I really need a better name for this) happiness project.

I love catching these glimpses of what he'll be like as a young boy. Moments like these: him on his couch with a snack, watching his favorite show, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

Project Life 2014 | September Four + Five, October One

October 13, 2014


I've fallen behind with sharing my spreads, mostly because I complete one and move on, only to look back later and think: something just isn't right. So, I've been making adjustments here and there until I'm happier with the spread. This is something I am really trying to avoid, actually. Go figure.

Anyways, here's the completed September Four spread.

He's a climber these days. On the chairs, couches, stroller, stairs, fireplace ledge, everything and anything he can reach.
