In My Purse

I have been on a makeup kick lately and I’m having so much fun playing with new makeup! I made this page using this kit that is 50% off right now at The Lilypad to document my latest obsession.

What have you been into lately?

Hello March

Hello, and happy March! Things have been a bit of a whirlwind here lately. It feels like spring is in the air, but then we got slammed with another 8″ of snow, so I have to be patient. I love snow in fact, but I can’t wait to plant a few flowers in our yard, and enjoy our patio. I have a bunch of trips coming up, all work related, but I will be able to add a few days here and there for sightseeing. The other big thing coming up is my mom’s surgery. They had scheduled her for this week, and she spent the whole day at the hospital, but in the end they sent her back home without operating because they were our of beds! Ugh, such bad luck! Hopefully next time works out and everything goes smoothly. I’m a nervous wreck! Just hoping I can get my act together and get everything done before I leave, which is a lot!

But enough about me… March is here, and the BYOC collection at The Lilypad is a stunner! Here’s a page I made with it:

2019 Documenting

{this link contains affiliate links, which means that if you choose to purchase an order I will get a small commission at no cost to you. I only share products that I truly love, and in most cases were purchased by me}

I’m off to a good start in the new year! For 2019, I want to document in 3 ways: weekly Project Life, daily journaling in my Hobonichi cousin (A5 format), and weekly documenting in the Hobonichi weeks traveler’s notebook.

I have gotten started, and I will share a couple projects here, which were inspired by Pantone’s color for 2019: coral.

Here’s my title page for Project Life, made using hybrid cards from The Lilypad’s Memory Pockets Monthly: MEMOIR.

I’m still working on my weekly spread.

And here is my first week in the Hobonichi weeks  (before adding journaling):

Stamps used:

Sakuralala 365: Fuyu, Me Time

Sweet Stamp Shop: Monthly Script Stamp, Year Round, Pour Decisions

Studio Calico: I believe they are all retired, but there is a digital version of the Conrad alpha here. Stickers and washi are from past Documenter kits/Planner kits.

Ink: Distress Oxide in abandoned coral.

 

What about you – have you gotten started on documenting 2019? I’d love to hear your plans!
