Begining Project Life

I had been wanting to do Project Life(PL) for the longest time. Of course with work, school, family, friends, social life, and sitting in traffic, I never had the time. Getting this blog updated and making 1 card a week was a big task. I was also under the impression that it HAD to be a weekly thing and it was definitely something I could not commit to. But as I did more research, I learned that it does not have to be a weekly thing and it can be anything I want to. Now that I’ve gained back 3 extra hours in my day, I feel like I have more time to try new things.

I decided to start PL as a travel album with the pictures from our Costa Rica trip that we took last May. I originally was not going get a core kit. $30 for 500 cards sounded like a good deal but I read a lot of the reviews and many people were stating that some cards were unusable. I wish they came out with a travel theme kit. I did find a ton of FREE printables(via Pinterest of course!) but after printing some and trying to make them myself, I thought I should at least get one core kit to save myself some trouble.

Here are my supplies that I’m starting off with:
Project Life Core Kit - Seafoam Edition
Photo Pocket Pages - Design A
Photo Pocket Pages - Design D
Grid Cards 4 x 6
We R Memory Keepers Classic Leather - Kiwi (12x12 Ring) - I got mine at Target

I’ve also been purchasing different travel themed stickers and embellishments. And some are pre-orders from the Spring releases so they haven’t arrived yet. I’ve also subscribed to a monthly Project Life kit from CitrusTwistKits.

I got over 250 pictures printed at Costco and I'm excited to start my next journey and documenting my life.

Age Ain't Nothing But a Number

Hi Everyone! Of course I've been MIA again. Reason why: Dave and I MOVED. We left our super cute 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, backyard, and ATTACHED garage HOUSE in the suburbs for a 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom APARTMENT in the city! Sounds super crazy but if you were spending 3 hours a day commuting between work and home, you'd do the same too!

I'm excited and sad at the same time! I'm excited because I'm obviously be close to work and FRIENDS. I'm sad because, we're obviously sacrificing SPACE. I've also lost my CRAFT ROOM! I went from having a 15x10 craft room at my parents to a 10x10 room when I moved in with Dave. Now... I have a CORNER. But, sacrifices have to be made! I just told myself, that this would be TEMPORARY... until Dave finishes grad school and I finish school period.

So far, we’ve been adjusting to the apartment really well. We took a lot of our stuff that we didn’t need on an everyday basis to our parent’s house. I'm making use of every space that's available (under the couch, under the bed.) My poor baby, Cody, was confused at first but now he’s fine with it. We even have a little patio with some dirt for him to do his "business". He also gets to go on walks on the regular now. He’s an active dog so the walks definitely help. He doesn’t have all this built up energy at night and doesn’t keep us up.

I wanted to share a card that I made several months ago. It was for Helen's birthday back in July. I just realized that I hadn't posted yet.

I am pretty much all settled in and FINALLY have internet so I will have time for more posts.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by!
