Project Life 2014: Week 38-39

 Hello!  Well, it looks like I've hit another stand-still with Project Life as I'm waiting on Quent to edit his photos.  But I might jump ahead and work on some later pages because I really want to keep working on this.  I've also been scrapping regular pages, so it's been good!

Project Life 2014: Week 36

I'm still cranking out these pages.  It's been fun to look through all of the photos and pick out my favorites.  The kids change so quickly!  I just had about 90 pages printed through Persnickety Prints and it was really fun to slide all of those pages into a new album and page protectors...and then to have Jeralyn really excited about looking at the pages.  It makes it all worth it--even all of the catching up! 
Last night I started a Pinterest board for Project Life.  I'm looking for ideas in how to improve it and make it different for next year.  One thing I want to change is the mundane journaling.  I just have to get better at recording the funny insights from Jeralyn and the cute things they do.  Really, it's just getting the highlights.
I decided to throw in some purple, gray, and yellow on these pages...

Hello!  It's Monday!  Time for a new week!
I thought about posting these weeks separately, but why not all in one bunch?  I'm getting caught up!  Whoohoo!

Big Boy

Hello!  Happy Friday!
Here's Mr. Moo (that's his nickname)!  Isn't he so cute?
I'm having a lot of fun scrapbooking with boy digital supplies!  It's fun to mix it up!
Have a great weekend!

Project Life 2014: Weeks 31-32

Hello!  Guess what?  I've been scrapping every day for the last few days!  Yay!  That's huge progress for me!  And this creativity is inspiring other creativity.  Like I really want to sew some placemats, which is huge because normally I only like to sew when I'm pregnant (and I'm NOT pregnant!).  Ha!  So it looks like a trip to the fabric store is in my near future.

Digital Scrapbooking Day

Hello!  I am celebrating Digital Scrapbooking Day by creating some pages using some of my favorite pictures from this year.  It's been really fun getting back into it!
I hope you are having a great day!

Project Life 2014: Week 29

Hello!  Happy Digital Scrapbooking DAY!!  I'm proud to announce that I woke up, fed Joshua his bottle, and then SCRAPBOOKED!!  My husband is awesome!!  Yay! 
I'm really in the mood to do some regular scrapbooking (aka non-Project Life pages), so I'm going to see if I can sneak in some time this weekend to do just that. 
What are you doing today to celebrate Digital Scrapbooking?

Project Life 2014: Weeks 26-27

Wow!  It's been a long time since I've posted or done anything scrapbooking-wise.  I had to *make* myself just work on something today because I had a moment to do so.  Sure, I could mop the floors or put away laundry, but if I don't sit and be creative, IT WON'T HAPPEN!  I'm not sure how moms even find time to scrapbook.  Seriously.  Or the brain power to find creative energy.  I was just telling a friend the other day that it's easier for me to knit right now because the pattern tells me what to do. 
Also, I'm not sure if I'm bored with Project Life, but I definitely need to change it up next year (which is right around the corner)!  I even thought about doing it the old-school, non-digital way (which I very much doubt would actually happen because I have like ZERO space for such a thing right now).  Oh, I so remember the days I had a craft room.  Ha!  A whole entire loft...sigh...*day dreaming*  But I wouldn't trade my two little cuties for a whole house full of crafts.
I guess I just want to be free to do whatever I want and not have weeks, dates, and journaling hanging over me.  I have to think about what I want to see years from now.  Do I want to read what I did from Monday through Sunday?  Do I want to remember funny quotes or things my kids did?  Do I want to see weekly photos on my pages, or will monthly do?  What do I want to remember?  What do I want my kids to remember?  That's good stuff to be thinking about. 
This is what I DO know...I want to scrapbook.  Digital scrapbook.
It's just a matter of finding the time and creative energy.

Project Life 2014: Weeks 23-25

So, to be honest, I'm either bored with what I have as far as digital supplies go, or I'm just needing a new format for Project Life.  I'm not sure, but I'm not as impressed with these pages.  Or maybe it's just because I'm trying to get caught up and something is better than nothing.  Ha!
