Project Life 2013: Week 52!!

I cannot believe it is already the last week of 2013!! Where did this year go??

Every year for Christmas Sunday my dad wears a suit and I make sure to get a family picture to show how nice he looks. . .this year I forgot!

Trying an idea I saw on pinterest, using glove clips (the kind that attach toddlers gloves to their jackets) to hold my pants in place when I put on my boots! Love it, works perfectly

Attempting my very first ever gingerbread men, not too bad if I don't say so myself

My habit of cookiing with post it notes

Playing Just Dance 4

December's self portrait day

Our tradition of making bread for all the neighbors has been around for so long we had to rewrite the recipe (and the 1st card was laminated!)

Project Life 2013: Week 50

The Mom Creative
Snowstorm # 1, hit much earlier than expected. It took us forever to get home from church (30 minutes just to cross this little bridge 5 minutes from our house)

Finally decided on a design and started making my Christmas cards

Snowstorm # 2, looked beautiful but made getting to work a big fiasco! We rescheduled several times before managed to make it there that afternoon.

Testing out my new hot curlers, I think I need more practice, but I looked to hilarious not to take a picture!

Starting a new study with Hope, super excited

Picking out a couple of fun 50th cards to send to my Uncle for his card shower!

Preparing to go out and build a snowman in storm #3!

Week 40s completed pages, very simple, both design A

Project Life 2013: Week 49

The Mom Creative

Loving my new scarf from Krochet Kids international, love how it is signed by Julia, the woman in Peru who made it and I can go to their website and learn about her, so personal, so neat!

Got a new memory foam mattress topper. Love it!!

Starting to see all the packages of Christmas gifts I ordered come in

testing lights in order to replace some burnt out ones

Using the last of the Thanksgiving turkey in one more delicious turkey sandwich!

double checking our grocery receipt in the parking lot has become a habit after too many trips back to the store because something was incorrect

Yeah! Christmas Parade day! It was freezing, but that didn't matter one bit!

Week 39s completed pages:

Left side, design A

Insert 1, front


Insert 2, a random 10x10 sleeve I had in my drawer that I punched holes in and added some washi tape to seal the bottom, perfect to document a lunch date after work when I left my camera in the car

back of insert 2 holds an ad for the Voice and the Blacklist, 2 shows I am currently watching

Right side, design A (sorry for the glare)
