Anyone still following?

Well, again I went off the radar but I'm here to stop by. We have had a lot going on in our lives and my crafting and blogging have had to take a backseat. We sold our house and had to move within two weeks. We're also preparing for a life-alternating experience. We're excited about also nervous. Work has been crazy and has maybe settled down for a little while but is about to start getting crazy again with the end of the school year coming up. Also, I'll hopefully be able to put some pics up of the projects I've made in the mean time. I've not been able to do a whole lot in the past few months. I have also been good about not buying too much stuff recently also but that is changing due to the wonderful stuff from CHA.

I've made a video of some recent purchases, which is over on my YouTube channel. What I'm really excited about right now is starting Project Life. I think it's such a great idea and realized that I'd done a bit of it before with the Simple Stories line. I still love their stuff. We R Memory Keepers has the various page dividers that you can use. So I debated for a while about buying the products. I could just piece things together rather than spending the money on the products but in the end I decided to buy some. You may ask why would you do that if you'd figured out you could piece it together?....Well, I like the products that they have out there and I am going to combine the Project Life products and my own supplies. So I'll be doing a hybrid Project Life, I guess. Which I think is what this and scrapbooking is all about...doing your own thing and getting to leave your mark. I like that I can do little layouts or just some journaling and still feel like I'm documenting what's going on in our lives. Anyway, my package arrived today with my Project Life goodies so I'm really excited. I'm going to try and post or at least take pictures or videos regularly on my progress. I also need to do an update on my Junque Journal. I'm definitely not going to do it every day or even try and do it every week but maybe monthly or just events that I want to have some physical memory of later.

I hope that you'll stick with me through the transition we're about to go through and keep checking back.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I meant to do Project Life this year, and had bought page protectors. Hasn't worked out quite yet! :)
