Spring Break

It's spring break here! It has been a fabulous week. I feel a little guilty to report that I have been taking the little girls to daycare, to spend some time getting projects done around the house. It has been so relaxing - even though I've been cleaning :)

Since I last wrote, I have pretty much decided to switch to using the Silhouette Cameo. I bought one from amazon after we got our tax refund. I love using it - it can do so many things and I love that I don't have to buy any cartridges.

Also, I have continued to work on project life in the few minutes that I have each day where no one else is wanting anything. I just discovered that you can upload videos to youtube and then generate a QR code that can be read by an app called Scan Life. Then you can insert that code into your project life page protector. If you scan the code, you will go instantly to the youtube video! Cool!!

Project Life

It's a new year, and a new start for those of us at my house.

I'm going to work on Project Life this year. How will I do it? Will I be able to fit in time to find pictures for every day? Will I be able to find the time to write journaling for every day? I think I will take more of a week by week approach than trying to have a picture for each and every day = that's too much pressure!!!

I have the turquoise edition - I have the binder and the core kit. I have mostly Becky Higgins A page protectors, but I think I will be able to fill in with some different page protectors to hold some school papers from the two older kiddos, or to use some vertical photos also.

When I was talking to my sister about whether I actually had time to keep up with Project Life, she said that I should because my littlest one would appreciate some pictures of her toddlerhood too! My oldest boy has pages and pages from when he was a baby up through the time he was about 5. My middle child has some pages, but not many. The baby only has 1 : ( Not that I love her any less - it's just that lots of days I feel like my head is going to explode and I simply can't make it up to the scrapbook room after a full day of work and looking after the kiddos - I just want to go to bed!

So we'll give it a go! I'll try to take the approach that Project Life was meant for - Simple : ) I'll try to add in some special touches where I can, but mostly I just want to document our life!
