Used the new Heidi Swapp Project Life core kit this week. Loved the bright colors and fun fonts:
Tyson’s last week of school, Jake’s first week of summer break, and my last few days of the school year:
Keep those movie ticket stubs. One of my favorite non-photo additions to Project Life:
Another Heidi Swapp Project Life kit, this time the gold and blue mini kit. Swoon. Love the colors and font so much. Our first official week of summer break: gym time, craft time, and lazy mornings…
Prepping for our NYC trip, new chucks for me, ninja training for the boys…
In the past, the boys and I have done Thankful Turkeys and Grateful Trees for the month of November. This year, I wanted to do something different and something with the whole family. I LOVED the me & my BIG ideas leaves the second I saw them. I also knew I wanted to something where each of us could write down a daily gratitude. We have used popsicle sticks and mason jar before with our Boredom Buster Jar, but I wanted to incorporate them into this project as well. I decided to use mini bags as the focal point, with the intention of trimming them down and transferring to my project life or making them into a gratitude mini album. One bag per person:
And a jar of popsicle sticks and Sharpie waiting for November 1. I love capturing the boys’ handwriting and look forward to having various pieces of their daily moments to keepsake…it can be one sentence, one word, one doodle. Ultimately, I am looking for one memory or gratitude a day from all of us.
I have received a few questions on Instagram about my Project Life organization and workspace and thought I would share a few pictures. I don’t have an office or permanent workspace, so everything is more or less portable as I work in the dining room. It overlooks the boys’ playroom so it’s perfect.
I like to have everything out and visible, or as past experience has proven, it doesn’t get used. In my immediate workspace: a bamboo silverware tray that houses my favorite core kits, roygbiv’d by kit. A black wire silverware tray that houses random cards and all my sub kit cards in roygbiv order. Next to those, a white wire tray that houses most of my washi tape, again roygbiv’d.
* Bamboo tray and white wire silverware tray are from TJ Maxx
* Black wire silverware tray and wire cupcake stand are from Cost Plus
Behind the card trays is a wire cupcake stand that I use to hold date stamps, more washi, and extra embellishments. I have all my favorite, or current, embellishments in a white muffin tin. Super simple set up, everything can be moved to the garage if need be. I also have two raskog carts: one houses all my sticker embellishments and the other all my design team goodies. Hope that helps!!

* White muffin tin is actually a paint tray from Lakeshore Learning
