December Daily - Day 7

There hasn't been any 2 page spreads yet. Our trip to the Teddy Bear Toss on Sunday definitely warranted 2 pages. It's been about 5 years since the last time we got to the Teddy Bear Toss. It's such a highly anticipated afternoon out. It's awesome to watch all the people coming to the Saddledome with their arms full of stuffed animals.

We won the tickets at a silent auction, for Mason's hockey team. We had no idea that it was a suite. It was such a fun experience. We ended up having 6 tickets, so asked my Mum and Dad to join us. It's the only way to watch a game, that's for sure!!

December Daily - Day 6

This is the first year, in all the years I've done this, that I finally feel comfortable in my own skin. That I finally feel comfortable with my style. With my way of capturing stories. Don't get me wrong, I see other ideas, and think, LOVE IT. But this year is the first time, that I've sat down at my computer, and simply created.

And I have to say, I'm loving it.

I'm a few days behind, but not sweating the small stuff. I know falling behind is going to happen. It's okay. I'm taking it one day at a time.

December Daily - Day 4

Still managing to keep up! Last night Mason's scout group went sledding. We're a couple of days away from a full moon. [I think it's full this Saturday] I dropped him off and took a few photos with my iphone, which were terrible. I brought my Nikon with me to pick him up and took a few photos. Love sledding at night, it adds just a little bit more excitement to the adventure. Mace even let me take a few photos quite willingly. They didn't turn out super. I had to crank the ISO way up. But I captured the cluster of kids, some of them sledding, a house with it's Christmas lights on, and the nearly full moon. I'm pretty happy with the photo. It's kind of dark and moody, and was very similar to the actual conditions.

What you don't see in the picture though, is my chattering teeth. Although we were very lucky, I think it was only -5° Celsius. Almost balmy after last weeks freezing temps.


For this page I used the Making Spirits Bright collection, from Sahlin Studio.

December Daily - Day 3

If memory serves me correct, it seems that last year I did awesome keeping up with my DD album until about day 5 or 6. And then the craziness sets in. But day 3, and still hanging in there!

PL2014 - Week 38

Just quickly updating my project life stuff. Here is week 38. I have a few more weeks to catch up on, but I'm holding in there!

Week 38:


This week included a much needed coffee break. And sadly, that was the LAST time we had coffee together, though we did manage a dinner together in November. Trying to learn how to walk on a leash. Working on a headboard for Mason's room. A trip to the ultrasound technician for miss thing. [Everything is just fine] A boy and his dog. A trip to the groomer, before and after. [She is in desperate need to get there again right now] An anniversary celebration.

December Daily - Dec 2

Here is my page for day 2. I'm trying to focus on capturing one story a day, to add to my album. This story is about Mason's Christmas Concert at school. We thought that we were through with them, this year Madelyn is in division 2, and they don't have a Christmas concert, rather they have a spring concert. [The division 1 kids have the Xmas concert] We were glad to get to see Mace perform in choir. They did a great job, and sounded really lovely. Of course, kids voices always sound lovely.


I used the number card from Sahlin Studio Making Spirits Bright bundle.

The other elements/cards are from several different designers, and are add on kits that coordinate with this months Memory Pocket Monthly Kit, JOY, at The LilyPad. The designers are: Sara Gleason and Stolen Moment Design.
