August Project Life Album

Eight months, eight albums!
I love this picture above.  I love that all of our memories from this year are recorded.  And I love that I've been able to use my supplies in a creative and different way!!

I'm so excited to share another fun Project Life album with you this month over on the Studio Calico blog!  I decided to keep things simple and use an extra 4x4 album I have in my stash for August.  Most of my photos are square anyway, so it kind of was a no-brainer!

Like in previous months, my album is mixed with tags, journaling cards, stamps and extras, as well as full spread photos and typed journaling.

I know I don't add a ton of words into my albums, but I guarantee I've added more this year than any previous year doing the 12x12 size.

Here's a little walk through video of this album.  Short and sweet - just like the book!

Stop by the Studio Calico blog to see more pictures of the book, as well as read a little more about how this one came together!


Lunch Box Love Notes

I am always trying to think of fun, new ways to use my stash and supplies!!
Since we are in full school mode right now,  I thought it would be fun to put together some cute little lunch box notes for my daughter!  These are SO easy to make, and they are SO worth the extra effort!  My daughter loves showing off her notes at school!

Hop on over to Maggie's blog to see a quick tutorial for creating your own lunch box notes!  They are sure to put a smile on your little one's faces!


Week In The Life: Sunday Photos

I'll be sharing the highs and lows from each day throughout the week:

Sunday highs: Scott cooking breakfast, getting organized for the week, soccer in the backyard, morning family walk, finding Anna reading Drew books, the sound of kids laughing and playing, washing, folding and putting away all of our laundry (high five for that), the best watermelon ever, family that lives close by, day date with Scott, walking around downtown, The Pit, Rye, outdoor concerts, sneaking closer to the stage, singing at the top of our lungs on the drive home

Sunday lows: looming deadlines, no creative motivation, most of the places being closed downtown, staying up too late


Week In The Life: Saturday Photos

I'll be sharing the highs and lows from each day throughout the week:

Saturday highs: family breakfast, yummy Americano, Anna's outfits and her love of boots, morning walk down to the farmer's market, cool breezes, Lara Bars, drawing and coloring, Coconut Charlies, the kids changing back into their pajamas after we got home from a walk, homebodies, hanging with friends, walking downtown Wake Forest, Lafayette Village for dinner, kids running around, umbrella lights and fire pits, camp outs on the floor, happy kids

Saturday lows: farmer's market closing early, showing up for a birthday party that is next weekend (womp womp), having to work on the weekend, chasing Chase around the backyard when it was time to leave, lines at the food truck festival


Week In The Life: Friday Photos

I'll be sharing the highs and lows from each day throughout the week:

Friday highs: it's Fri-yay | no line at morning carpool | quiet work time in my office | morning shower | finding all of our names spelled out in scrabble tiles on the couch (by Drew) | lunch date at Gonza's with my boyfriend | chips and salsa | Jumpin' Beans | Anna's first soccer practice | dinner at a new restaurant | hangman | Christmas pajamas | potty dance for Anna | jumping on the bed

Friday lows: sub-par meal at Gonza's | no cash for the photo booth | craziness at dinner | kids acting like crazy kids | running out of printer ink | forgetting Anna's shinguards for soccer practice
