Hi everyone! I hope your weekend was a good one. It was Dans weekend to work, so I just caught up on things around here, but sometimes that feels good too. There are always those things that I put off.. because I just don't feel like doing them.( bad , I know..lol) When I finally cross them off my list it feels great! yay!
I'll share more on my thoughts on "everyday life" lol, after I share a little bit of creativity first :)
These cards are made with Paper from Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage "Barber Shop" Digital Kit and "Mustache Men" Digital Stamps.
All this got me thinking about a layout I did YEARS ago... probably 8-10 years ago I imagine. As dated as it is I'm not even going to be embarrassed... lol, and I'm sharing it, as a reminder of how important it is to scrapbook the "everyday" things in life. These are the things I want to remember. This silly little layout holds a piece of my heart.
On this same subject. "Everyday photos". With phones taking such great photos these days, it really makes taking photos anytime that we want to..so easy. I've decided I'm going to start working on a album of just "Everyday" Life, and fill it with photos I take of everyday things in my life. It's my "2013 Everyday" project. I'll be sharing my photos and my album with you here and I'd love to have you join in if you'd like. I just keep thinking how I love photos of my parents , grandparents ect...over the years... but I also find myself looking behind them at things in the background of the photos.. like, the stove grandma cooked on, or the dashboard of my dads old work car... ect.... Really, it's just fun to see not just them but what their world and their daily life was like. Of course they couldn't take photos the way we do, but what if they could have? Wouldn't you love to see, some of those "daily life" things? I sure would.
Anyway..... Here are some of my everyday things from the last few days
1. Winter Evening in Nebraska
2. Wes was home for dinner Sunday night. After dinner he taught me how to play domino. I loved spending time with him.
3. Cleaned house Saturday and put together a new little vignette for something different to look at during this long winter.
One more things I want to share with you before I close is a link to Kitty's Pretties. This week is her first week of sharing a "Pretty of the Week" and she is sharing my tutorial on making Paper Towel Flowers. Thanks so much Kitty! You can see it HERE.
Okay friends..... go make some "Everyday Memories" and take photos!
