Hooray! The Fed Ex truck was here!

It was only a couple of weeks, but it seemed much longer!  I've been watching the site for the announcement that the new Project Life kits were available.  What is it?  A VERY simple way to scrapbook, with all the cutting, planning, etc., done for you.  The kit is designed to hold pictures that are taken daily.  I know, that sounds overwhelming, and I know I won't do that.  But, the layout is your own, it can be used for daily, weekly or monthly pictures or a combination of both.
And, look at all the fun stuff inside.  The album is large and the color is more beautiful in person.  The small boxes are full of fun little cards for journaling.  You also get a pack of 12x12 paper if you want to add more stuff.  You could add more embelishments, too.  But, that sorta defeats the purpose, huh?  There's even a little date stamper!  (I love little things!)

The page protectors are made of a high quality, photo safe, plastic.  They are divided for pictures and cards. Everything fits in it's spot, perfectly.  I left a few empty so you can see how easy it would be to change things around or add more cards/less cards, more pictures or not.  Fun!
This has to be the easiest way to scrapbook ever!
What a perfect way to document your life, your faith and tell your story.  I think I'm going to use mine to remind me to be thankful for the blessings and be thankful in the trials. 
"In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you" (1 Thess. 5:18).
I may find out what my life focus is, or what I spend the most time doing, who I spend the most time with, or where I am most of the time!  I don't think I can keep up daily, in fact, I've already missed some days this month, but I'll do what I can and see what happens!

3/4 C water
3T vegetable oil
1 17oz box of cinnamon swirl quick bread
1/2 C M&M candies

Preheat oven to 375.  Whisk together eggs, water & oil.  Stir in bread mix and spice mixes until blended.
Divide batter into muffin pans, and put 1 T M&M's on each muffin.  Stir through batter and bake 20-25 minutes.

starting the new year!

I am so happy to have had time to work in my craft room! It feels so much better when you walk in and everything is where it's supposed to be. I am so blessed to have all of the fun things you see in my room. This room has been years in the making.  My husband is the best at building and supplying a craft room, take a look........

This is a great and wonderful space.  I cherish my time here!

Fun day at the office!

I am encouraged as we move into the new year, lots of things going on.  Today, it's very cold outside, and snow flakes are blowing around in preparation for the big "storm", hahaha.  I'm enjoying my time at work today, it's quiet and I'm focusing on new things, and moving foward.

Today I'll work on some administrative things, and a really fun bulletin board for the preschool suite.  Maybe I'll post a pic when I'm finished.

That's it for now.

color your life with love,
