Here are the final pictures of January's project kit. I love how the front cover turned out and my favorite pages in the book are the ones that I had Nate and Zach put their hand prints on. Kits go up for sale tonight at 12am EST here.

Have a safe and happy New Year! Wishing you all the best for 2010!

January's project kit "Book of Love"

We have many mini albums filled with photos of people we love, but what about all the other little bits and pieces of our lives? The special notes, drawings, quotes and tags we collect. Shouldn't we have an album to store those as well? This month's project kit is all about those little bits of ephemera that we all have but don't know what to do with. Look around your house and you will find them on your refrigerator, in your junk drawer and on your bulletin boards.
Here is my basket full of bits and pieces:

And here are a few of the pages from my album:

The album is titled "Book of Love" and that is what it is, an album full of little things that you love. Your child's drawings, a special card from your spouse, a favorite photo or even a clothing tag that caught your eye. The only consistent theme in this album are the colors and the sentiment but other than that you fill it with whatever you wish! I am so excited to include this album with the others I have created, it reminds me of the scrapbooks I made when I was in high school and I think that having a record of all the "stuff" we collect will be fun to look back at someday.
Kits go up for sale January 1st at Cocoa Daisy.

I am hoping to wrap up my December Daily by the end of this week and will post pictures of it and a few photos from our trip down to Virginia, have a great day!

January's project kit.

The project kit for January is titled "Book of Love". This little sneak peek shows the starting point for the album; these great book covers by 7gypsies. I didn't want to do another typical Valentine mini album about that special someone in your life, instead I thought it would be fun to do an album that had more of an art journal feel to it and fill it full of all the little bits and pieces of your life that make you happy. What ever those bits and pieces may be: photos, notes, cards, maybe even some pretty pieces of ribbon you have been saving. I wanted a place to keep all of those things as well as a place I could creatively "play". I'll have some pictures of the finished book to post when we I get back from VA in a week. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Holiday week. Merry Christmas from all of us here to you and your family!

December Daily days 5-13

Here are my latest December Daily pages. I am trying to keep my daily more simple this year, I knew I would not have a lot of time to work on it and keeping the pages similar and streamlined is really helping me get them done quickly.

Look for a little January project kit tease to be posted tomorrow!

December Cocoa Daisy

We have had a couple snow days here which the boys have loved, but it has really made life busy!! All the running around I needed to do to get ready for Christmas this weekend (yes you heard right we are celebrating Christmas early because we will be gone the whole week before Christmas) was also "canceled" due to the weather! So today is going to be a bit crazy, but it always gets done some how!

Here are my layouts created using the December Cocoa Daisy kit:

This little tree album was created using a chipboard album I found in the Michael's dollar bin! Can't beat a bargain like that! I am going to add pictures from our trip to VA this Christmas.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Birthday to me!

I'm 39 today, and to be honest I really don't have anything profound to say about how that makes me feel. I do know that it feels like it's going to be a year of new experiences and I think that at 39 I am looking forward to whatever the year will bring!

Here are the pages that I have completed so far for my December daily:

Have a great Tuesday!!
