It's been awhile, hasn't it? Thought I would jump right in with a little update of what is going on around here lately.
I'm reading this (as almost everyone else on instagram seems to be too).
I'm about half way through and am really enjoying it. I'm tempted to rent a small dumpster to really purge the things we have been meaning to for years (the boys have really grown out of a lot of their toys (or broken them), the garage needs an overhaul, closets are overflowing, etc.) I'd like to really get down to the essentials, once and for all.
I've been on a huge paper kick lately (aka my new love for analogue). I have been searching for the best planner, journals and notebooks to help me keep sane. I've been sketching more, doodling, and just jotting down what's going on in life. Honestly, it's the only way I can remember anything that happens anymore, and it also helps me appreciate all of the good things we sometimes overlook.
This beauty was a little gift to myself awhile back and I absolutely love it. It's the Mod Case from This is Ground and I use it to carry around my chargers, earphones, a notepad and sometimes my Ipad and Ereader. I used it on our recent family trip to Florida and it was perfect. I also think it will be fabulous on work trips where I do not need my laptop.
I also think I've finally found a better system to work on Project Life.
I've decided that committing to a week in the life is just too much for me. When a hobby or craft begins to feel more like a burden, something needs to change. The 12x12 format I was using (which I still really love), was a challenge. I didn't always have the right photos for a layout, printing them was a challenge and so on and so on. So, I have switched to a 6x12 album and have found new systems to take notes and journal on my phone (using the Day One app) and plan layouts (using the Project Life app occasionally). I also found a great new way to print out smaller prints. I will probably do a separate post on all the details of that soon.
We are all really happy around here that Winter finally seems over. It's a bit of a slow start to Spring, but it is coming. Hope to be back super soon with more.
