So we did our big ‘back to school’ shop today. Shoes, we walked out with six pairs. Uniforms, Henry looks so adorable in his new kindergarden kit. And school supplies. Oh how I love them. Seriously. I love stationary stuff.
A super quick post today as I’m running in and out processing, packing and sending order from my 50% off clearance sale.
Putting week forty-eight together was fun. Continuing with keeping everything simple I used white textured cards from the Project Life collection, a couple of Midnight core kit 3×4 filler cards, stamps from Kellie Stamps, and some gold foil vellum circles that I punched out and stapled with my tiny attacher stapler.
The words that I have chosen this week were inspired by a moment that happened literally minutes before I scripted them.
Amy Tan has a free Creative Handbook available on her blog, Amy Tangerine, which she put together with her friend Jamie Waters (also a Mum of four!). Their Creative Handbook provides 5 Practices to help encourage inspiration, motivation and creativity which is especially handy if you are feeling creatively blocked like I was last night.
Before you jump to any conclusions, no. I’m not closing down. Haha. BUT….EVERYTHING MUST GO!

HAVE A BALL EVERYONE! XO
Hello wonderful Friday!
Today I’m sharing week forty-two of our 2014 Project Life album. Our beloved Pa had passed away and his funeral was the same week. He was 100 years old. I talked about his 100th birthday and about our Pa here. My youngest son Henry shares a birthday with Pa. They were 95 years apart in age.
Pa meant the world to us and we miss him. Our Nan passed away less than a year earlier. She was 94. We miss them both terribly.
The design for our week forty-two is a complete contrast to week forty-one. Not a lot of colour but a lot of journaling. There were wonderful moments to celebrate during our week like Henry having his Kindergarten orientation and William breaking his first board at Rhee Taekwondo, and funny moments like Scarlett’s asking what I was doing when I was ironing in the kitchen and her remarking how wonderful she thinks it is that I try new things (hmmm…) and when my Dad topped up my car with water using
Well, as you know I was on a mission last year to get our 2014 Project Life album completely finished. I fell short by two weeks which I’m not devastated about because I was so incredibly behind. I’m going to continue to blog my 2014 weeks while beginning our 2015 album. Here is week forty-one. Bright, colourful and fun. Yet simple and using what I have around here.
