Can I do it?

Yes, I can!

I've got it in my head that I can and will scrapbook my 2013, getting the bulk of it done this weekend at the Creative Retreat. Isn't that ambitious?

How you ask? I am on this Project Life bandwagon, strapped in and ready go! I have a plan, a mission, and a new found love for documenting my own stuff! I think I'll use my Honey Kit, the one I used for my week of the Hometown Workshop, I'll stick with a theme. I've already decided that my Midnight Kit will be for 2014.  I have just finished sending 200+ photos to Costco, I haven't had them print in years, but I'm in hurry so I'm trying again. I printed 30+ Intagram photos from home. Considering I have 316 photos that I took in March, I think I'm doing pretty good! I realized I don't need to keep or print or scrapbook all those photos! Gasp!

I'm pretty confident that if I keep it simple, I can get it done and be ready to start 2014!

I'm trying to get a group together to meet once a month to work on Project Life. If you are reading this and are local, contact me!

October re-cap, 13 days late.

I'm slowly making my way through the 3 week Art of Holiday Goodness course I'm taking on-line. It's self paced and I think I'm doing pretty well keeping up to myself!  (again, the first photo is not centred, I guess it feels justified.)

 I'm really enjoying the watercolour painting. This is Monte and his pumpkins.

 Speaking of pumpkins....
 Looking on-line for inspiration.
 Doodling on the table cloth.
 The supervisor had to make sure it was kid and dog friendly.
 I didn't edit this photos. I should have used my expodisc for the white balance. But then if I had, when we paint this weekend, I wouldn't have amazing after pictures for these crappy before ones.

 This one hates the smell of the pumpkins so I was a bit surprised that the job even got done.

 The finished results beside the Halloween tree, the one that will probably stay up till Christmas.

I decorated and photographed the yard in the pouring rain.

Linus got to see every single kid that rang our doorbell. He would have gone home with a few of them, and one of them tried to give him candy. 

Mid-October, I had a sleep over with these two and their mom. We attempted a small craft, made a Chinese terracotta baby pee, and I watched almost all of Brave before falling asleep. I made them pose for this picture before they went to school then M and I returned to do what everyone does at sleep overs! Filing paper work!

This happened the week, in November. Kerry took Linus out with my dad to clear mountain bike trails. Linus swam in giant mud puddles and came home filthy and stinky. So we had to bath that beast.

He was so tired that he fell asleep while we blow dried him. He was so fluffy afterwards.

 This is from today... I made cards for class.

 This one is one of my favourites.
And these are all my softies I've made for the Art of Holiday Goodness. I am going to do a whole year of Linus.
