I mentioned it in yesterday’s post, and I will say it again–this is such a fun project! I feel like I have such a better handle on what is going on in our lives, and there is something so…..I guess peaceful is the right word for me…..in getting memories/photographs/stories written down and preserved. I now no longer worry or feel guilt about time passing by without me remembering what happened that day/night/weekend. I am constantly snapping pictures, writing things down, or sitting at my computer playing around in photoshop. I hope some day the girls appreciate all this work! Here is a recap of our week and what you’ll see on our pages.
Last week had us housebound quite a bit. Minnesota finally had “normal” winter temperatures, which for us can mean zero or below. Justin taught Holly the card game war, and I played more than one board game with her each evening. Current faves are Guess Who, SpongeBob Yahtzee, Connect Four, and Hi-Ho Cherry-o. Justin attempted to teach her Sorry, but Holly couldn’t quite get it yet.
I was able to get Marie in the photography studio for fifteen minutes at least! It wasn’t the best day to try it out (Friday)–my car’s new battery was dead (turns out we were sold a bad battery so thankfully the old Mazda is still kickin’) so I had Holly with me instead of at preschool as I tried to take Marie’s pictures. It didn’t go well. Holly wasn’t in the mood to sit quietly, Marie wasn’t in the mood for pictures period, and I couldn’t shut the car off. I was able to run it locked with an extra key, but since I was just about out of gas this had me a little worried I would get stuck at the studio and have to walk home in -10 temps. Just another crazy day around here! But…I did get a cute photo of my baby girl, so even if I never get the chance to do it again I will always have that:)
We did two big house projects, refinishing our tub and cleaning Holly’s room. Her room was so bad that, yes, I would put that into the category of a house project. It took us seven hours! But, we did get things really organized and it’s looking quite cute. She now has lots of room to play preschool and restaurant, two of her favorite activties. I was able to show a little about both of these imaginative play themes in this week’s layouts.
That about sums it up. Now onto the pages! Thanks to all of you out there last week that stopped by my page and left comments by the way. I LOVE connecting with new people online, and really love all of the inspiration I get by checking out other’s blogs and pages. Keep stopping by and keep commenting!
This week I used Design A for the left page, and Design E for the right. Really liked Design E once I figured out a way to get more photos displayed. I designed a few templates for a 6×6 space that I am happy to share! I am in the midst of trying to figure all of that stuff out, by next week I should have it all set up:)
Please spread the word and send others this way, I intend to keep designing and hope to have more products and downloads coming soon!
