Though I still feel like I’m stretching my blogging muscles, and working hard to get back in the groove, there are so many things I want to share with you, my dear, dear readers. They are completely and totally random things I’ve thought I should blog about over the past few months. As I can’t sit down and write in depth about all of them, you are now privy to them in list form, because as my husband says, I love a good list.
AGOMYR told me about Milk Books and I caught them during a sale, and bought a wedding album. Well, I bought a voucher to make one. It’s supposed to rain today, so I can’t think of a better activity than sitting inside, putting wedding photos together 5 years and 10 months after our wedding.
Speaking of which, there are about 8 photo books I want to make, so I am going to make a list of them all (#listsonlists), and make it my goal to work my way through them by Christmas. I always want to make the books, and they’re so expensive, so then I think I’ll wait for a coupon, but I never remember to check, and then I don’t make them. And I’m always so glad to have them, and love looking through them. (In case you’re curious, I’ve used Pinhole Press, Artifact Uprising, and Blurb in the past and have been happy with the results of all three companies. I’m always chasing a coupon code instead of remaining loyal to one brand.)
And one last documentation tidbit. I ordered Ali Edwards’ Week in the Life kit just in the nick of time, and plan on documenting a week in my life starting next Monday. I have done this once before, though I never ended up putting an album together afterward. I love the idea of going in-depth with the stories of the week, and need a kick in the pants when it comes to scrapbooking. Project Life has been on hold for too long, and I’m hoping this is the jump-start I need to take more photos.
My friend and I were sitting on the dunes, watching a beach wedding, and we got to talking about wedding vows. I have really strong feelings about them. This article is great.
I missed these in my size at the Anniversary Sale, but will probably get them at full price anyway (and then roll my eyes about how I could’ve saved more) because I have no snow boots, and we have gotten a ton of snow the past two winters. I understand this means it will not snow at all this winter, but I am sure I’ll find times to wear them anyway.
