We have hit the second week of our #myselfiescrapbook project/class and I have to be honest. I still cringe when having to take my own photo. BUT not as much as I did two weeks ago. I’m getting use to it. This is me here and now…*shrug of the shoulders*…and this project is opening me up to being more accepting and embracing with what I see when I print out the photo as well as being more mindful to get in the shot.
And welcome to week eleven of our Project Life album for 2015. It was a fab week of firsts including Henry’s first cross country experience at school and me holding a python. Ugh. The things we do for our babes… I used a lot of DIY cards in our week eleven and I’m happy and excited to share these really simple, cheap and fun ideas with you.
For this weeks free brush script offering I wanted to share with you a card I made for our Project Life album. All I did was print the brush script out onto a piece of 4×6 glossy photo paper and then I wrote all the things I was grateful for right here, right now using an Artline black felt tip pen 0.4.
What are you grateful for? Grab the script and jot it down. Being grateful is a healthy exercise. Acknowledging these things, no matter how everyday they are is worth noting, worth documenting, worth recording because it’s your life. And your life is important.
And welcome to week ten of our Project Life album for 2015. It was a wonderful week. William had his Rhee Taekwondo beach training session which we all love, I recorded my first ever podcast interview and I went to a ball! I also included a few everyday moments like how every Thursday Henry and Scarlett always hide behind the gum trees at the school after picking up William from training, and how during the parent teacher interviews William was hit in the face by a basketball and how he discovered how painful that can be – poor darling. And Pa’s portrait came back
Today the girls of #myselfiescrapbook and I are sharing our pages from the first week of this month long course. My gorgeous gold 4×4 album hasn’t arrived as yet but I haven’t let that stop me from getting started on this project. To find out what this fun project is all about take a look at my initial post explaining it all here.
And hey to the winner of my script giveaway!

Who likes a selfie? Certainly not me. But I do recognise how important it is to tell our story, as a family, as a whole, not just the stories of my children and their lives. It has reinvigorated my passion for documenting our everyday. I feel like I’m telling the real story of us. Last week I was contacted by Jen Lake about a the fabulous concept of #myselfiescrapbook and she asked me if I would contribute to this FREE month long
This little bird is feeling the need to spread her wings and fly. Do you ever get itchy feet? I love traveling. Whether it’s by plane (sigh, the concept of taking off in one city and arriving in another really excites me) or packing up the car and going on a road trip. Travel brings a new and exciting perspective on life. It’s inspiring. And it gives you the chance to shake it up, shake it off.
