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

We're officially in the 2nd half of 2013, and my album is bursting so I'm about to start a new one. Here's how I finished off the January to June album. This page covers the last week in June, more... Continue reading

Hi there, I'm on vacation now, so maybe I'll post a bit more often. I have a list of things I want to make or do, so that might give me some interesting blog post topics. Here are a couple... Continue reading

I've realized that I'm never going to be a consistent blogger with a predictable posting schedule. I'm just not that motivated. There was a time when I posted almost daily for several months, and it was exhausting. Some people can... Continue reading

Thanks for the kind words! I really like making my own journaling cards sometimes! For the "some days" card, I wrote the words on cardstock with a marker, then cut them out with an exacto knife. It's a little time consuming, but sometimes I just feel like doing a project.

I have a couple weeks to catch up on. oops. I did all these pages last night. I took a bunch of pictures with Instagram at Paola's baby shower, so I decided to use a different type of page for... Continue reading

New pages in my PL album. Nice attitude, right? The Easter side is a little more cheerful. Claire was so funny finding her eggs. Hope you're having a nice Saturday. Thanks for looking! Continue reading

It's been an interesting week, though it may be hard to tell from this week's pages. I need to work on taking more pictures of people. I always forget about that. I did take a quick picture of an outfit... Continue reading

It doesn't seem possible. Here are the pages I did this week. I crossed out my student's name above, but honestly, I adore that picture so much. It's pretty much the greatest thing I've ever seen. That's why it's on... Continue reading

This week's pages: About half of the pictures are of my niece and the other half are of the snow storm we had yesterday. I took my cameras for a walk. I included some favorites from the March playlist I've... Continue reading

Today, I thought I'd show you where I keep all my PL supplies. I don't mean to brag (yes I do), but I have the most awesome piece of scrapbooking storage furniture ever made. It wasn't actually made to store... Continue reading
