Some Project Life in My Kitchen...

My son Nathan is home sick today, he has a bit of a fever and is just feeling lousy :(.
We spent this morning on the couch cuddling and watching t.v (which I just love and really miss since he has started school) but this afternoon I wanted him to have a rest so I decided to start my project life scrapbook for 2015!!

One of my Christmas presents was the 5th and Frolic project life core kit!!! I have been wanting to start project life for a few years and this year I have!! It is really a cool way to scrapbook. For me it gets me out of my head and just allows me to do
I usually sit in front of my pictures and paper with Google images open to various scrapbook layout ideas and it takes me forever to get going and do a layout. With project life there is very little to decide so you can just get the pictures arranged and the memories recorded, which I just LOVE!!!

Today I sat at my kitchen table and got all of January done. I have not really embellished it so I will share more of my layouts from today at a later date but I am really pleased that I got as much done as I did :)

sorry for the glare...

I wanted to share this last picture because I am really loving this little bag! I use it to carry my crafting things from the basement to the kitchen and it can fit almost everything!! I also use it when I am going to crops and I have a lot of little things I don't want to put into my big scrapping tote. The thing I love the most is that it was less than $10 from Michael's!!

Some New Finds :)

Hello and I was watching the news one night last week and I heard that we are once again in a polar vortex... :(. It has been so cold outside that my scarf is frosting up as I walk my boys to and from school just from the warmth of my breath!! I cannot wait for this cold air to leave and return to some more seasonal

Today I was out and about, I had several stops to make and some of them were fun :)
I stopped at Michael's and picked up a paper pad that I was very excited to get. I had wanted this paper pad for a while and it had been out of stock forever... until
I wasn't even going to go to Micheal's today, but as I was driving by I quickly turned into the parking lot and I am glad that I did! There was one Recollections comic book paper pad in stock so I quickly picked it up and went straight to the cash!!

I have a couple of scrapbook layout ideas already to go and some card ideas too!! I think that I will spend some time tomorrow getting some layouts done with my new papers :)

After Michael's I headed over to the mall (which is just up the road from Michael's) and went to two stores. My first stop in the mall was David's Tea to pick up some new Matcha tea. I got two different flavours to try:

I could not wait to try it out the moment I got home. I like it but to be honest it was just ok. It has a really strong taste but it has so many health benefits that it is worth it!!

My last last stop of the day was to pick up some new shampoo for my son Bobby from one of our favourite stores, Lush. 
We were watching some of the YouTube videos about their new shampoo and Bobby really wanted to try it, so I told him I would pick one up for us. We had already chosen which one we wanted mainly based on the I wanted something with a neutral smell that our whole family would like to use and he loved the name of it, so it was an easy choice. 
I got the Honey I Washed My Hair shampoo bar:

 and the storage tin

It smells so good!!! I am really happy that it does not smell too sweet.  With having four guys in the house that will be using it I really wanted something subtle but nice, and I found it with this!!!  Actually, I was really impressed with all the shampoo bars, they all smelled really good and I can't wait to try them all.

Getting Ready for Valentine's!!!

Hello! I hope this post finds you well, I have been a little sluggish over the last couple of weeks but otherwise good :)

Over the last couple of days maybe even weeks I have been getting ready for Valentines day. I have been working on cards for our family and friends (which I am sad to say have not made it into the mail yet). Today I was busy making cards and a favor box for the girls group I co-lead at church.
Wednesday is our meeting night and tomorrow night's craft will be a sea of red and white!!!

The hearts are cut from  Plaint Schoolhouse Cricut's cartridge and the stamped Happy Valentine's Day is from a My Pink Stamper stamp set. The favor box is cut from the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cricut cartridge.  The white card stock is cut to make an A2 sized card once it's folded.

I included the last picture because I thought my youngest son photo bombing my picture was so cute!!!
