& snapped pictures of the last few weeks of project life i've completed.
i was SO excited to share them..
i eagerly added them to my instagram feed..
mostly because i was enjoying scrolling through the #projectlife hashtag myself,
i figured i'd add to the fun!
then i came inside & unloaded my camera...
and looked at all the cropping i was going to have to do..
and thought about all the uploading to flickr i was going to have to do..
and then sighed & went back to working on my current week (17).
this morning when i got onto to check the blogs i follow
i noticed my instagram feed & had a lightbulb moment.
(i swear from now until eternity when i have these moments i will hear gru in my head saying 'LIGHTBULB!')
i decided to use my instagram pictures to update the ol' blog.
they may not be perfect pictures, but they are a heck of a lot easier to share right now.
and easy = getting done in my book.
so here are weeks 10 & 11:
|supplies: heidi swapp month stamp, 7 gypsies 'one more' sticker, 7 gypsies red tape, hobby lobby star sequin, smash polka dot tape, ac felt heart, ac dear lizzy date stamp, ac thickers, ms labels for avery, tim holtz tiny attacher, ac precision pens|
|supplies: ms avery label, hobby lobby soccer patch, ac stickers, heidi swapp 'play' sticker, tiny attacher, ac precision pens, staples office date stamp.|
made the decision, partly inspired by elise's quote cards every week, to include the dude's soccer game score. it's a big part of our life right now (well it was during the season) and while i'm not so interested in 'keeping score' it allows me a repetitive way to include a snippet of the game each week, who made it, something he did during the game, etc. all stuff i want to remember.
|supplies: smash tape, mm star brad, ac thickers, mm glitter stickers, 7 gypsies arrow turn, mm brad, hobby lobby brand clear acrylic 'r', ac thickers, bg alpha stickers.|
|supplies: staples date stamp, masking tape, tiny attacher, ac glitter thickers.|
i did the 12 on 12 again with liz kartchner, but wasn't entirely thrilled with all my pictures.. and quite frankly didn't have enough room for them all.. so i decided to put in the 'timeline' instead. the white card is folded over & inside is a run down of my day with what i was doing every hour on the hour. i thought it was a neat little snapshot of life right now, that i may not have otherwise thought to include!
that's four days of blogging in a row.
can you believe it?
i'm actually even getting excited about craft projects again.
it feels like the 'old' me is returning...
and i can't tell you how GOOD that feels.
and guess what?
i have more project life to share tomorrow!
what's your thursday shaping up to be?
