Continuing to share my large backlog of Project Life layouts today. We're finally on to 2015. Here's what I did in January and February. You know, back when I did full page 12x12 layouts, I didn't do a whole lot... Continue reading

We're one month into 2016 and so far I've stayed caught up. Which I realize is not such a huge accomplishment. I switched up my format this year - from 12x12 to 6x8 pocket pages/albums. Switching things up makes me... Continue reading

I'm going to finish off 2014 with this post. Moving right along. The "love this" card is letter-pressed. Most of the accents are from Studio Calico. The currently card is another that I did with watercolors and stamps. The tiny... Continue reading

Hi guys. I've got layouts from October 2014 today. October was a good month. Because for starters, I got to see the Afghan Whigs. The "I'm not going to freak out" card is from Studio Calico and as soon as... Continue reading

More layouts from 2014 today. Featuring more hand-made cards. Hand-lettering, letterpress, stamping, watercolor. Those are my favorites. This one just highlights some of the things my nieces were up to that summer. Claire was digging Frozen, and Georgia was basically... Continue reading

I'm enjoying going through all these old layouts. Lots of fun memories. :) Here are some layouts from July of 2014. Basically an entire layout about The Citizen. I might have a cheese problem. My road trip to Portland, ME... Continue reading

Hey everyone! It's a new year, and we're having the weirdest January weather ever. It's currently raining and thundering and 56 degrees. In Connecticut. In January. Anyway, I wanted to share a little project I put together yesterday. I made... Continue reading

Continuing with 2014, today I'm sharing the rest of June. Some months, I have a lot going on, others not so much. Looks like a lot happened in June. The pictures on this layout were so colorful that I stayed... Continue reading

Still working through this massive recap. Here are a few from April, May, and June of 2014. This entire layout was for Claire's 3rd birthday party. Gretchen died in April that year. Stella died this past August. So I have... Continue reading

Somewhat serendipitously, I ended up finishing my old art journal yesterday. So I'm starting the new year with a brand new fresh one. I actually started using it yesterday, but I'm counting it as the new year. Lately, I've been... Continue reading

Now that I've committed to blogging again, I've realized that I haven't posted any layouts from 2014 or 2015. So I'll try to post some highlights. Some of my favorite layouts - the ones I feel turned out well enough... Continue reading

I took a really long break again. I still scrapbook, mostly in pocket pages, but somehow I got out of the blogging habit. School is always busy, and my focus is there. And then school ended for the year, but... Continue reading

Good morning! The last section of this album covers our time in France. We were mainly in Paris, with part of a day at Versailles. The France section has a lot of blue, aqua, and pink, with a little red... Continue reading

Hi again. I'm back today to share the UK section of my Europe 2012 album. We had a couple stops in Wales - we were only there for part of a day - then moved on to England. In England,... Continue reading

Hi there. Over the next three days I'll be sharing an album I made to document my trip to Ireland, Wales, England and France with the school a couple years ago. Over April vacation every year, we take a group... Continue reading

I turn 40 tomorrow. I'm more or less ok with it. Turning 40 is better than not turning 40, right? A few days ago, I put this layout together. This makes only the 4th full size 12x12 layout of 2013.... Continue reading

My intro page for 2014 is fairly simple. The lyrics I included this year are from Cloudbusting by Kate Bush, although I'm not sure how strongly I believe the sentiment at the moment. I wrote out a list of goals... Continue reading

No December Daily, here. I don't do enough Holiday-related stuff to warrant a separate album to contain it. In fact, I didn't decorate my house at all this year. I must try to do better next year, because I really... Continue reading

So, I missed the first week of November, too. This layout is from a weekend in Vermont. My pages seem to alternate between typical project life pages doumenting the bits and pieces of daily life, and pages covering events, like... Continue reading

Back again. Looks like I missed everything in October that happened before Columbus Day Weekend. Oops. Well, here's a layout that covers that weekend. Rita and I ran a half-marathon in Newport. Next year, I'm planning to do at least... Continue reading

Photographing and posting all my layouts from the second half of 2013 at once has been interesting. It's helping me to recognize what I like and what I want to change. I've decided that I like the look of my... Continue reading

Hey again. Continuing with my Project Life pages from 2013 with August today. August technically started during nerd camp. I don't necessarily do a layout every week. Sometimes I combine a couple weeks into one layout if there isn't much... Continue reading

Happy New Year, folks! It's been months since I've posted. I've been keeping up with Project Life, but not so much with the posting about it. So I'll put up the rest of 2013 month by month over the next... Continue reading

I was cleaning out a closet and I found a bunch of random, oddly cropped pictures from college. I think I had scrapped them a long time ago, around 1999 or so, probably with paper pads from Hot Off the... Continue reading

It's been too hot to function lately, both for me, and apparently for my wifi. Anyway, I was able to pick up the signal today after a good two weeks of nothing. So I thought I'd share the beginnings of... Continue reading
