Project Life: Week Forty-Eight

Good afternoon! Today I'm sharing Week 48. Is anyone else obsessed with taking pictures of the snow and the frosty trees? Seriously, I'm going through my photos for Week 49, and I'm realizing how many photos I actually take when the trees are covered in frost. They're just so pretty! I love winter (most of the time).

This week I used the We R Memory Keepers (WRMK) Blackboard cards. I really wanted to use the "sweater weather is better weather" card from Studio Calico, and they were the closest match I had. Plus with all the snow, I wanted to have some white journaling.

Here's the left side. I probably should have used a plain black title card (I may still change it), but I added the title with white foam alphas, and then wrote the dates below it and added some snowflakes with my white gel pen. I included a couple photos of the snow, and photos of our new sign we made for work (it's been smudged in a few places since we made it).

Here's the right side. We had a bit of a blizzard, which meant more snow. I decided to display one of the three sets of string trees I made. I bought a beautiful tiered star thing from the local yardsale page. I haven't decided on a use for it yet, but I want to find a way to possibly display it year round (and a place to display it of course). I included a photo of the craftroom, and a close up of a layout I recently made, that Jon and I think is funny. I included a few details from the story his dad told me about this particular photo.

I feel that it's definitely important to include things that made you laugh, or smile. It may not seem very important, but when you look back on it, you'll probably still think it's funny. There's a few things we thought were so funny earlier this year and when we look back at them, I'm kinda like "We said things like that? What in the world were we thinking?" and then we just laugh about the fact that we talked like that.

Sorry this post is a little later, I worked on it the other night and thought I'd finished, until I came to work on another post (clearly I'm losing my mind!).
Have a great day!
