Finishing out my February Memory Planner pages amongst random card making supplies. I still need to finish making my 30 birthday cards so there’s a lot of those supplies underneath there somewhere.
Reading: An Argumentation of Historians by Jodi Taylor. It’s the 9th book in the Chronicles of St. Mary’s series. Only reading before bed has resulted in only a chapter or two each night because I’m so tired. I want to finish before the end of the month…
Watching: J and I started watching (and rewatching in most cases) all of The Three Musketeers movie adaptations. I forgot how weird the tone is in the 1970s two parter.
Listening: Slowly making my way through the Presidential podcast episodes. I’m currently on Andrew Johnson.
Making: Still making birthday cards for March’s 30 Days of Birthday cards. I think I’m about 1/2 of the way done.
Feeling: Multiple snow days featuring treacherous road conditions have led to home days. We really need to get outside today.
Planning: Putting the finishing touches on our Spring Break plans.
Loving: Quentin has been extra snuggly lately. I love the snuggles!
Reading: Loving The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin. Speeding through it to get to the last book in the trilogy.
Watching: So excited that The Magicians is back! Super excited that the group has their memories are back. Now we need to see where this train is going.
Listening: The Bachelor is currently airing and so it’s time for Emma and Claire’s awesome recaps and commentary with the Here to Make Friends podcasts.
Making: Working on birthday cards for next month’s plans for the blog.
Feeling: My anxiety has been up and down all this week. Right now, I’m okay.
Planning: Working out plans for the twins’s 16th birthday part next month.
Loving: The snow has been falling off and on for the past few days. I’m not a fan of driving in it, but it looks so pretty…
Reading: Code Girls by Liza Mundy. I’m over 50% through the book and so far, it’s really good.
Watching: Finishing out our month of movies this week.
Listening: I’ve listened to a few more episodes of Presidential. I’m up to Zachary Taylor. I’ve known a lot of the information presented, but I still find them enjoyable.
Making: I dove back into Quentin’s Project Life album which was stalled in March 2017. I just got my page protectors so I can continue this week.
Feeling: I’m not sure why, but I’m feeling very unmoored this week. Must find a way to stabilize myself.
Planning: Nick and Alex’s 16th birthday is coming up soon. We’re figuring out what kind of party/adventure they want to have.
Loving: I’ve been finding more snipped of time to read more lately. Love it so much!
Currently in between projects. The Project Life stack on the right side is waiting on more page protectors so I can actually do the spreads. Quentin’s album was stuck all the way back in February 2017. I’ve printed the pics through July 2017 and got them sorted. Just need to put in pages, journal a bit, and embellish. I also have an storage case under the desk with all the card kits. Waiting on plastic sleeves to make the kits and prep to send out. I might take some time to work on some cards for February today.
Reading: A Precious Jewel by Mary Balogh. Went back to my trusty standards: Regency romances.
Watching: We’re in the middle of January movie month around here. Only missed one day so far (for book club so totally valid).
Listening: Lots of hard rock around here. Right now, I’m obsessed with the Resist album from Within Temptation.
Making: Working on some fun Step It Up card sets. Love showing off two different card using the same designs.
Feeling: Excited about upcoming events!
Planning: I just registered for my first Stampin’ Up! convention for April. Previously the conventions have been too far away or ill timed (babies and such). This is the first one I can actually go to and I’m excited. I’ll be joining my good friend Pam in Minneapolis!
Loving: I finished with my December Daily album this week, which means all the Christmas supplies can go into storage for another year! This clears out my crafting area substantially.
Working on a pair of cards for next week’s Step It Up class. Can you see what stamp set I’m featuring?
I hope everyone has a great Holiday season. I’m off on my annual blog break until the new year.
The day is here! Goodbye sunny moderate California, hello blustery and chilly Nebraska! The boys and I are on a plane leaving the west coast for a quick trip to Indiana before driving over to Nebraska and settling into our new home. It's going to take me a few days to unpack my craft supplies, but thankfully I thought ahead and scheduled some projects to feature on the blog. I'll share photos of the new house once we get in.
Reading: Continuing the Lynburn Legacy trilogy with Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan.
Watching: I was away for the pst few days, so not watching much right now.
Listening: All weekend, we were rocking The Mixtape channel on Apple Music.
Making: I need to finish the Bingo Make n Takes ahead of Saturday’s event. I have them about 40% done.
Feeling: Last weekend’s retreat really did allow me to rest a bit. Feeling decent now.
Planning: Our move is just a few weeks away. Trying to get the last minutes tasks listed and accomplished.
Loving: Had to stop at the pie place in Guerneville multiple times over the weekend. I got Green Apple Chili, Peanut Butter Chocolate, Pumpkin, and Peach Blueberry Basil. So good!
