happy new years eve

It is that time already! At least I think so. I do need to set up my new album so I can be sure. I may actually have to wait a week before the official start of my 2012 Project Life. I think the 2011 album goes into 2012.

But I digress... the new year will be here before you know it and here you will find my pictures for the year. I am going to work hard to get them off my camera in a timely fashion. It may not be daily, but at least weekly. I feel that will help keep me organized this year.

I am faithfully using my Erin Condren life planner to record our daily happenings. I need to go through and update the Picture of the Days (POTD) for the last five or six weeks. I have them... just not written down in my planner. Oh yeah... I've got a code for York to order some prints on sale. All the more reason to get my act together.

But first I think I need a shower to warm up. Chilly here today and only getting colder. I think winter may have found us starting with the new year. darn.

I am still trying to kick this cold to the curb but it is holding on quite tightly. Hoping I will feel well enough to go to a friends New Years Eve party later. We went to see the Muppet movie yesterday and I wasn't sure I was going to make it through. Dumb cough and headache.

Shower, then organizing pictures for ordering. Yes. That is my day. Not everyone can live this glamorous life!

look at that!!

Told you the Project Life stuff was coming to Amazon!! Becky made the announcement today. Check out her blog. I have now ordered the Cobalt Core Kit and the Cobalt Binder for 2012!! So very excited and cannot wait for them to get here on Friday.

Happy days are here again! ;)

crazy busy

It is that time of year so I guess it goes without saying. But still- breathing is sometimes good for you. I've been working on presents and decorating and cards and other goodies. I haven't baked a single cookie yet which is something that will need to be remedied this weekend. I know my family would love some sugar cookies.

I have heard from Becky Higgins that the new core kits will be in Amazon's warehouse this week!! oh my can you say happy me?? I know I can. That cobalt kit will be in my hot little hands!! Guess that means I should catch up my 2011 journaling. I had gotten through October but have not even touched November. I think I have all the pictures ready to be printed though. That's half the battle.

Off to work on some more cards. It never ends-

project life is for EVERYTHING

Think you can't do Project Life because you aren't married, don't have kids, retired etc. Well you would be wrong with that assumption! Project Life is for anyone who wants to capture their life. I do believe that Becky Higgins said it best in this post on her blog. I totally have to agree with her and what everyone else has said.

Project Life rocks!!

I am trying out a new way of keeping my journaling for my Project Life. I ordered this great day planner/ organizer from Erin Condren. I am totally loving it. Never mind that I LIVE for keeping my life organized and this planner is WONDERFUL!!

I will have to give credit for this amazing find to MaryAnn Perry who also does Project Life, is on the Creative Team for Project Life and is simply fun. She mentioned one day about this planner and it sounded just like what I needed for next year so off to Erin's site I went. Talk about drooling over objects!! I was in organizing heaven with this planner. So very happy that I ordered it and it has come and I can use it. Even more special... Erin added November and December to the planner so I could start using it immediately to get the feel and flow of working with it before it came to 2012 and my notes that I will need for completing my Project Life.

I will have to take a picture of my planner. I LOVE IT!! Maybe tomorrow when the sun comes up I shall do just that to share with you all.

getting ready

2012 will be here before you know it. I have a feeling the next month and a half will fly by and I will not have anything done. Keeping this in mind, I am setting this blog up for my Project Life activities. I am hoping that having this blog will ensure that I take a daily picture and I can journal a bit. We'll see. But that is the goal of this blog.

Thanks for stopping by.
