My tweener is asking for taylor acoustic guitars at musicians friend – and we are talking about my seven-year old here. My son is asking for new tuners and chords.
Me? I just want to finish December Daily.
Since 2007, I have been able to finish a holiday-themed album for my family. Granted I finish them two-three years after (hahaha), it is still an accomplishment for me.
Let’s see if I can finish again this year!Leave a Comment | Permalink
Outside my window… Sunshine But it’s cold and windy! I love December weather.
I am thinking… how good it is Mom is home but how busy I am this week with deadlines.
I am thankful for… the gift of family, we are really blessed.
From the kitchen… fish + veggies, trying to be a good girl today.
I am wearing… ratty leggings and shirt.
I am creating… Picture collages for a gift on Christmas.
I am reading… N-O-N-E.
I am hoping… I will produce much needed content for today.
Around the house… Me and our stay-out help. The Frozen soundtrack is on repeat!
One of my favorite things… Martha’s Lalaloopsy dolls – not gonna lie I am a sucker for these cuties!
A few plans for the rest of the week… Decide what pictures will go into frames. Finish 1 mass/1 rosary a day. Get into the holiday spirit. See what the jbleon515xt thing Mato is talking about.
A picture I love:

I really want to accomplish at LEAST one photobook this year since I have so many Artscow credits – but most likely I will stick to photos + (few) words. I got an idea to have our prenups done in a photobook (we don’t have one) plus a few of our wedding pictures.
Perhaps what I can save on mandolin guitar purchase can go towards ordering more photobooks – we will see.
I also need to get my Dad’s burial pictures in a book — I will do that.
I plan to…
1) 30 Days of Grateful (I tweet everyday, that’s the extent of what I plan to do. Then collate them for a Project Life album)
2) 30 Days of Journaling with Ali Edwards (Took this class but haven’t completed it yet).
3) Finish Matthew’s 1st year album (80% done)Leave a Comment | Permalink
I want to learn a new hobby. I have not been doing as much scrapbooking as I want to. Since I do things digitally or on the computer, there are times that I get impatient. I want to see the outcome right away, in my hands and obviously I can’t since I need to have it printed outside the house and to a professional printer to be able to have a nice finish.
I want to do something with my hands!
I tried pottery and didn’t last. I am dabbling with paper scrapbooking from time to time but I don’t have a dedicated workspace at home yet so it’s hard to really hoard and manage materials. I also tried doing painting and so far I am liking it. I go to a little restaurant that offers drinks with canvas + paint. It’s a very unique concept and I enjoy going there weekly.
I am very curious about glass fusion though. I saw the web site http://www.amusinglass.com and was instantly drawn to the colors of the glass. And then I learned I can make one myself – wow! It seems I am late the game somehow since it’s a very popular art right now. You melt and mold pieces of glass into unique pieces of art! It also goes under other names like glass art fusion, warm glass and kiln forming.
I learned that you heat glass over a kiln and you should use glass that has COE approvals. COE is the coefficient of expansion of a glass – purchase glass that that has been tested for it. If you are going to fuse two types of glass, make sure they have the same COE grades.
Glass fusion undergoes different stages. Glass when it heated softens then melts until it begins to flow like liquid. Tack fuse and full fuse are just two of the stages you will learn more about. There are so many things I want to try to make!Leave a Comment | Permalink
I have bought the edition (Digital Project Life is 20% off everything until October 31!) and details are amazing. The words spot on. Thank you Ronnie for capturing what loss is all about.1 Comment | Permalink
