Haven't done this in so long that I have almost forgotten how. I want to write more of the stories of my day to day. I do more and then forget more all of the time. When I get ready to put photos and stories into our albums, I end... Continue reading

Such a busy day. At home and downtown. I had an appointment at Group Health for an MRI. It wasn't too bad but you have to lie flat on the platform and my back didn't like that at all. Jon took us across the street to Whole Foods for dinner... Continue reading

January and the first part of February were going to be my first year of only doing one spread per month. I wasn't able to stick to that and decided that I would just go with what I wanted to record each month and see what happens. We had such... Continue reading

Would love to attend this class. I do Project Life as a creative outlet. Most everything I do other than it is digital and so I love the paper and all of the embellishments that I use each time I put a page together. I try to make at least two spreads per month and an insert.

Marjolein, So glad that you like it and understand. I have this friend, Nan, who is always willing to go shopping with me and when I am hurting she will go for me. We both love almost all of the Ranger products and so it is difficult to hold onto my wallet. Thanks for commenting so quickly.

We have been going through a very tough cold spell for the Pacific Northwest. I notice it especially in how dry my skin has become and how often I reach for the hand cream. It rained yesterday. Not a down pour but the typical Seattle drizzle and I was so... Continue reading

Each year for the past six years I have chosen one little word to embrace and take note of in my life. This tradition has brought about more change and growth than one would imagine. I was a bit worried this year as it took quite some time for my... Continue reading
