project life update

I've got two weeks of project life up today :)

week 12:

and week 13:

Pregnancy's still going well :) I'm 5 months along and our little girl is measuring perfectly! We're working on her nursery, the dresser and crib are put together, the glider is ordered, and i have to repaint this week (we picked a light turquoise and decided we didn't like it so i'm repainting the walls a light pink with a darker pink stripe) I've got a design to do list for Jeff for some of her artwork :)
can't wait to share it when it's all done!!!

have a good one!

week 11

it's been a super exciting few days around here!
on Saturday I wound up in the emergency room for 4 hours (apparently i have gallstones!) and yesterday Jeff and I found out that we're having a girl!!! so so so excited! 

here's week 11 (and i'm only one card away from being done with week 12! caught up again!!!)

the weather is warming up, the sun is shining, and i'm going to have a little girl. so happy :)
have a great day!

Project Life weeks 9 & 10

I've got two weeks of Project Life to share today. They were two kind of empty weeks and i just couldn't figure out how to fill up a design a or b page so i went with the itty bitty design h :)
it was basically two weeks of meh. we found an amazing pizza place...but i can't keep pizza down anymore (i learned that night). we went out for dinner and a movie with some friends and had a good dinner, but then i had to sit through an awful movie (p.s. i really didn't like oz the great and powerful!). The highlight of both weeks was finding sweetarts at target (after i'd checked about 5 other stores and a movie theater and all i could find were sweetart gummies. travesty). i bought 3 boxes and a bag of easter shaped sweetarts and have been happily munching away on them ever since (except for when i need to take breaks because eventually they make my mouth kind of raw!)

week 9:

and week 10:

have a good one!

is it spring yet?

Spring keeps teasing me. The weather will be beautiful one day, nice and warm-ish in the 60s, sun shining, flip flop and frappuccino weather. The next day it pops back down to the 40s with wind and some rain. boo to that. I bought the comfiest and prettiest maternity maxi skirt yesterday and the weather will be too cold and rainy this weekend to debut it. again. boo.

to encourage spring to hurry up and get here to stay, i have another older layout to share today :)

i never have the patience/desire/skill to garden - but i love other people's flowers and i really miss seeing my mama's pretty little garden now that she moved to CA :)

have a lovely weekend! (and i hope your weather is nicer than ours will be!)

sigh...i miss sushi

I am having the BEST week! 
I'm taking Shimelle's Cover to Cover class right now and i'm reorganizing all of my layouts and planning so many more to make. This class is doing exactly what I hoped it would do. I've never been a big everyday scrapper (though i'd really like to be) I started off my scrapbooking with disney albums - and i'd scrap every single bit of a trip but i never knew what else to scrap - then the past couple of years i've added a little bit more of non-travely pages but i never really had a direction - and then when i started project life regularly that kind of usurped all other craftiness for the past year [as a side note - it's awesome to live your life like you're about to have a baby! I'm trying to make everything i love & everything that's important to me a part of a regular routine so *hopefully* it'll all be a little bit easier to keep up with once the baby gets here] so anyhow - i pulled my layouts all out of my albums yesterday and reorganized them - and now i have an idea of how to fill my albums and i'm so excited to get started with everything now - i might even start scrapbooking my wedding and honeymoon before my 4th anniversary this may :)

anyways- while i was pulling out all of my layouts i realized there were quite a few i'd never shared here so i thought i'd start with this one from our anniversary last year (so missing sushi during this pregnancy!)

lots and lots of Amy Tangerine Sketchbook on this page - it makes me happy :)

have a great day!

Project Life week 8

goodness gracious i'm sleepy this morning! I decided not to type my post last night - i figured typing it in the morning would give me something to do while Jeff's in the shower. i definitely did not take into account the stupid sleepy brain i have in the morning. oops.

it's not entirely on purpose - but i seem to be sticking to color themes for my weeks a bit more this year, a different color every week, but definitely an overall shade for the page. apparently this week was mustard. This was a slow week (as evidenced by a lunch date with a friend taking up a whopping three pockets)  but overall i think i can live with it :)

i saw oz the great and powerful this weekend - worst movie of the year. some of the people in the audience clapped though (unless they were just as excited for it to be over as i was) so i won't put out a don't go see it blanket statement - but really, the cg was awesome (especially the flying monkey's face - superb job) and that's really the only positive thing i have to say about the entire 130 minutes. so go see it at your own risk :)

have a great day!

project life weeks 6 and 7

oh Friday - i've been waiting for you all week. i've been making a bit more of an effort to be a good wife and i got up with Jeff this week to help him get out the door on time (which just sucks. i don't have to be anywhere in the morning so i think getting up at 5:30 is just evil. especially since i think i should get more sleep while i'm pregnant as my sleep will never be the same once Baby gets here!) so anyways - looking forward to the weekend and sleeping past 7 :)

 today i have week 6 and 7 to share with you and after this week we should be down to one project life post a week and hopefully other crafty fun can commence :)
i love love love my amy tangerine calendar stamp! LOVE IT i tell you.

here's week 6 - this was the first time we got to see Baby! - super awesome

and here's week 7!
(i was so nervous to stamp on that wood card! eek!)

hope you have a lovely weekend! I'm going to work in the shed a little bit tomorrow, organizing and purging, which makes me incredibly happy! I'm so anxious to clean out the Baby's room so we'll be able to start decorating as soon as we know the sex and i'm on a purging warpath - i've gotten rid of so much stuff in the past couple of weeks i'm itching to keep my streak going :) Then tomorrow night we're going out to dinner (our favorite Japanese place: Ninja Sushi! -don't worry - no sushi for the knocked up girl!) and then going to see Oz the Great and Powerful with some friends (i'm not holding out any great or powerful hopes for this movie - the reviews i read kind of echoed my expectations - but we'll see). bye for now!

week 5

today is super dreary and rainy but i had my Studio Calico kits waiting on my doorstep when i woke up, so i guess it can't be that bad.

i'm still working my way through some spring cleaning/baby nesting/purging this week - with little project life breaks (i spent all of last year kind of behind and this year is shaping up the same - which is not so fun because when project life spreads are spread out all over my desk i don't make anything else. and i miss scrapbooking and card making!) I keep my house pretty organized and picked up - but i slack on the deep cleaning (confession - we've been in this house for 4 years this month and i've run a swiffer wet jet thing over the floors - but i've never actually mopped!) so i'm trying to figure out a weekly cleaning schedule for myself (as i don't suppose it'll get any easier after Baby gets here!)

 anyways - here's week 5
i had the hardest time narrowing down the super bowl memes that i wanted to include this week! (sadly the iron man one and the doctor who one didn't make the cut - and in case you can't read it - the ecard one says "Next years super bowl will be played at the Motel 6, because at least they keep the lights on for you. bwahaha.)

you may ooh and aah over my sequin storage. it makes me happy.

stay dry (and warm and safe if you're being hit with snow!) and have a lovely evening!

Baby Talk :)

Just popping in with an update from today's baby appointment :)
Baby's heartbeat is strong and happy and I'm super happy to be out of the first trimester!
Now I'll be counting the days until April 23 when we have our anatomy scan and we'll find out the sex!!!

Week 4

Happy Monday!
I'm slowly but surely catching up with my project life :)
today i've got week 4 to share and hopefully i'll be done making and sharing my previous weeks by the end of this week and i'll be able to make some other stuff!

I'm loving the little calendar cards this year - i'll probably use a calendar every week except for the weeks that span two different months (since they have to be difficult like that)

aren't all of my sequins pretty!!! There's a picture in the next week of them all organized and i LOVE THEM. that is all.

anywho - have a great week - i have a baby appointment tomorrow and i. can't. wait. seriously i'm so excited/nervous/anxious to hear the baby's heart beat! I'm officially out of the first trimester this week so maybe now i'll actually enjoy being pregnant a bit more :)

week 3

good morning!
this week i went to a tea party birthday party and those were the only pictures i ended up with - so i decided (after trashing my first attempt at the week) to just go with it and make the whole page super girly :)

i'm so excited for march to be here! i didn't get around to decorating for valentine's day and Jeff wouldn't let me decorate for Easter until today so my house has just felt empty since we took Christmas stuff down at the beginning of January - bring on the bunnies!

Have a great weekend!

week 2

wow, blog posts two days in a row - let's totally make a habit out of this :)

here's my week 2:

one of the reasons project life has been lagging this year is the complete lack of anything that we've done :)
by this time last year i had taken 2 long vacations, run two half marathons, and just done a bunch of fun stuff. this year we're "saving money" for the baby (less fun) and the pregnancy has been kicking my butt and making me super sleepy - which leads to no pictures for project life. also - Jeff got a video game at the beginning of December that he played constantly for 2 1/2 months whenever he was home. now that the weather's edging towards spring and i'm not as sleepy i'm trying to go out more, meet up with friends, and just take more pictures - wish me luck - i don't like pages full of filler :)

project life week 1!

Hi there!
The sun came out today so i have some Project Life pages to share for the rest of the week!

here's week 1!

 (sorry for the unpopular opinion on Les Miserables! It's been my favorite musical since i was in 6th grade and i don't think the singing in the movie came close to doing it justice! I'll take the 25th anniversary concert and pretend the movie didn't happen!)

this year (as usual) i'm using a big mix of stuff in project life. i got the seafoam kit, i subscribed to the Studio Calico PL kit, and i just use whatever i grab in my studio - it make my album a little hodge-podgy but i like it :)
my cover page is still a work in progress - i printed out a big 12x9 picture so that leaves me with just a row of 3x4s to fill in but i'm having a hard time committing to a paper. for my last two albums i just went with at 12x12 picture but i think if i printed the one i want for this year @ 12x12 it would put our faces right in the lines to cut - not so cute. so yeah, a work in progress :)

hi there!
I'm moving my way out of the first trimester blues and i'm ready to rejoin the world! I have a couple project life pages to share this week, i'm just waiting on some sunshine to photograph them. so today i thought i'd pop in with what's going on/what i'm loving right now :)

  •  We got to see our baby two weeks ago! super awesome - now i can't wait to see it again! (and to find out the sex!!!)
  •   As soon as i started to move out of morning sickness and exhaustion i dove straight into spring cleaning/organizing/purging/nesting. loving the progress i'm making on organizing our storage shed and on cleaning out the baby's room :)
  • I'm drinking tons and tons of water and i'm down to one diet coke every few days!
  • I'll be dragging myself back to the gym this week for cardio and yoga and i can't wait! i've felt like such a bum the last two months!
  • I'm waiting impatiently for my papertrey ink order to get here - hopefully today or tomorrow and then i can play with my new stamps!!!
  • Really looking forward to cooking again now that I'm enjoying food again :)
  • I'm trying for some restraint but i'm desperately wanting a doppler so i can hear the baby's heartbeat at home - super frivolous and if i can hold out another week or two i know i'll be able to just wait until Baby starts kicking and be happy with that. but still.
  • i'm loving my new nail polish! Essie Mint Candy Apple - can't wait for flip flop weather! (sorry about the picture of my feet - but i only wear nail polish on my toes! i hate to have it on my fingers!)

Project Life week 50 and 51

I still have two more pages to share after this, but my Project Life for 2012 is FINISHED!!!!
and I LOVE IT!!!!
i never really imagined that i'd stick with it this long and i'm so glad i did. these albums make me incredibly happy.

Today i'm sharing week 50 and 51 :)

here's 50: i grabbed that Mister Rogers quote card from Cathy Zielske's blog

and week 51:

isn't my daddy jolly?!

we went to see some houses on the Tacky Light Tour in Richmond - totally worth the 2 hour drive!

so that's it for today - i'm trying to hold off on sharing week 52 a bit longer as i'm waiting on a family picture from my cousin (from december 24th) and i have a bit of a surprise in there that i'm not quite ready to share yet :)

have a good one! and happy happy 2013!
