Week Seventeen

May 31, 2015

Recently, I have been trying to use more of my stash instead of sticking with Studio Calico cards and I am loving how the spreads are turning out.  

Week Sixteen

Week sixteen is finally in the books! That week was pretty crazy but also very productive. 

My New Hobby: Card making

May 24, 2015

Recently, I've been watching a lot of card making videos on youtube and it was something I wanted to try. Of course, I don't have all of the awesome stamps and dies they use, but I was able to make a few.

I originally planned to send the cards out to my instagram friends but shipping would have added up quickly and then I thought about Levin Children's Hospital. I've spent my fair share of days in the hospital and the smallest thing can cheer you up so I thought it would be great to give the cards I make to the hospital! My goal is 50 cards and I might get there faster than I thought!

Week Fifteen

May 20, 2015

I've gotten a bit behind on Project Life lately, but it is nice to get back to it. Week fifteen was pretty boring so I was struggling for photos, but it turned out pretty nice. I think my favorite part is that adorable Easter egg card, super cute right? 

Whenever I try to take a nice selfie, I always end up with a ton of silly photos and I thought it would be fun to include.

I'm not a huge fan of journaling, although I am getting more comfortable with it. I decided to add a little tag behind the photo and just added some string for easy access!

This is probably my favorite part of this spread. I got quite a bit of mail last month so I decided to make a little vellum pocket so I could include all of it. I hand stitched it, which was, well, a big pain in the butt. Thankfully it turned out really well and I think this is something I will do again in the future.

Hard Times & A Freebie

May 10, 2015

I've recently had a lot going on which is why I haven't posted in a while. A lot of the times when I am not feeling well, I find it difficult to write anything more than a status update or a post on instagram. I won't be able to post many PL spreads due to the pain I get while taking photos of the spreads.

Before getting into all of that, I just want to thank my amazing mom for helping me through all of this. I couldn't do any of it without her. I created this print for my mom and wanted to share it with all of you because I'm sure many other people can relate to this. If you aren't familiar with the lyrics, they are from the song Mother Like Mine by The Band Perry. I adore this song and knew it was perfect for my mom.
