Hi Marina, I barely did document those years and my only saving grace now is using the Project Life app. I have a category over to the right that shares pages and ideas. I absolutely love how easy it is to keep scrapbooking and not lose these day to day memories.

A dozen years ago today I started this blog. This morning I dug into one of the categories I organize with and skimmed through twelve years of crafty posts, pulling out images with "Just Make Stuff" in mind. Make a... Continue reading

I have earlier classes again this semester, so breakfast has to be quick. For the last few weeks I have been making a batch of over-night oatmeal to eat with a sprinkle of granola and almond slices. This recipe gets... Continue reading

Almost ten years ago I was lucky enough to have my sister ask me to be my nephew's Godmother. We went to the meeting at the church together and I tried to stifle my laughter as some massive amounts of... Continue reading

Ever since I saw this planner page idea I had to do it. I decided on three (not so lofty) goals this year. Read ten books...and I know it's sad that ten would be an accomplishment. Go on 150 walks.... Continue reading

Our one holiday break project was replacing the shelves over our "bar". Granted it hasn't been a bar since we took out the sink seven years ago...and it was never used as a bar, even when it had a sink.... Continue reading

I cut off half of a page protector last fall and it's been fun to pick out four cards to have in the front of my planner for no other reason than they're cute. Continue reading

This is my fifth December Daily project (2012//2013//2014//2015), but I've always called it December Daily-ish since I could never get each day of holiday memories recorded in the amazing ways that others do. I started this book a couple of... Continue reading

I don't know how fresh of a start it is when your planner for 2017 isn't put together until a week into the year, but oh well. Tomorrow Sean goes back to school, which makes it kind of feel like... Continue reading

I actually found these milk frothers last year and tucked them away in my Christmas wrapping storage box with an idea for a hostess gift. And speaking of last year, I also found a recipe for hot chocolate mix around... Continue reading
