Three More Pages For You

I'm feeling like this blog is a little outdated. When did I set it up? At least 3-4 years ago. I'd really like to change things up a bit but there are so many things I like to do! The pages I post here are primarily digital pages. I'd say for each digi page I make, I do at least 6 paper pages. I haven't liked the way my scanner scans them and I haven't figured out the trick to take good photos of paper pages so those tend not to go up here. In addition to the scrapbooking, I love to read, I knit, I take photos, I try to exercise as close to daily as I can. I know it's ridiculous because I'm not working right now, but finding the time for this blogging business is tough!!

Here are the next 3 months of my 2014 album:

Just Like I Promised!! Another Post.

Things around here are moving along nicely. The girls are busy. Meredith is busy getting ready to apply to University (I know right? Where does the time go?). We're off for the next few weekends on Campus Tours. My plan is to encourage her to visit and apply to as many Universities as she's interested in to give her as many options as possible. She is still working at a local grocery store and participating in a local youth Orchestra. I'm so proud of her each and every day.

Isobel is busy as well. She loves her trampoline and her guitar but the highlight of her life right now is Robotics. She made it onto the school team again and is busy building her robot for the tournament in December. If you've never been to a Robotics Tournament - you're missing out. I know it sounds terribly dull but it really is the exact opposite. There is so much energy! It's great to be involved in a competitive venue for children who are not athletic. She is growing into a lovely young lady who is sure of who she is and what she wants out of life.

Here are my monthly pages for April, May and June. I'm enjoying doing the project this way but I am planning something completely different for next year! I'm just in the planning stages right now!!

Thanks for looking! I've got 3 more pages for you next week.

I'm Going To Try . . . Again

I think about this blog often. I love the idea of blogging, I just somehow seem to think of things to blog about when I'm not home, when I don't have the time or when I'm falling asleep at night and then I don't remember in the morning!!

I worry that my life isn't that interesting. I worry that people will get tired of my many scrapbook pages, but I've decided I'm going to just post when I can, if I can and what I can.

You may remember from my past posts that for a number of years I have tried to document our daily lives. First, with a Project 365 album where I took a photo a day for the entire year, then with a Project Life style album where I just documented our daily life. This year I did a page a month. These pages consist of photos I took but haven't turned into a stand alone page.

Here are the first 3 months of the year. (I'm feeling like I need to spread these out so I have more to blog about!!)

I'm going to write the post for the next 6 months of 2014, so I can guarantee you more posts!! Stay tuned!!
