Project Life :: My Version of That One Little Word :: January 2015

I loved the idea of the One Little Word by Ali Edwards but it wasn’t exactly what I was thinking of. I needed something new, something that wasn’t open for all to see what I wrote. 

So I wrote bible quotes that I love, quotes that mean something to me, ones that I wanted to write why they meant something to me, and what the situation was that made me love it.

My word was Faith.

And I wrote the definition and used alphas to highlight my word.

This is what the back of my tags look like. I am not quite finished with them, but the year’s not over yet, right? 🙂

Then they slide right back into their pockets.

I hope if you find a project that you love but don’t like that particular process that you adapt it to what you want it to be. It’s your album, your life – make it yours!

Project Life :: Goodnight, Sweet Neumann :: October 2015

We had Nuemann since he was a little, chubby 8 weeks old Pug puppy. He was 15 years old this month. We will miss him.

He was 15 years old on the left, and 13 on the right.

We had a great time with him.

Here he is with his sister Pearl. She was adorable. They were only 6 months apart and always together.

She was mostly deaf and blind in one eye so she followed Neumann everywhere he went. They loved each other. But they’re together again and running free. We enjoyed them for so many years. For that I am thankful.

Project Life :: College Visit :: October 2015

Sure, he’s only a junior but it’s never too early to look at colleges.

Especially if it’s in San Francisco.

Yes, it was foggy. But it cleared up.

The grey-brown cards from Becky Higgin’s Prismatic and Picturesque kits are perfect for this city layout.

I used some rose gold dotted wash tape and a few puffy stickers.

And to finish it off, a trusty date stamp.

One college down, several more to go.

Beginning Anew :: My first place :: 2015

Moving into your first place is always exciting. Working to make the money, decorating with things and colors you love, feeling like a grown up.This tells the story of Grandma and the apartment she left her for us.

Paper doilies and sequins sewn on. 

Grandma lived here for ten years so going through her things was hard on us. We were very close. 

She would have been very proud of her granddaughter’s accomplishments. And happy that she is now living in a space that was once hers.

Being ‘home’ feels great!

While this layout shows the change of the apartment, it was an emotional few weeks going though Grandma’s things. But it’s all turned out just lovely.
