Not Exactly Certain…

12 Jan

why I have been MIA from the blogging world for so long, but now I am back and I have lots to share!

First of all, I am happy to report that I have began to put a dent in my happy list! For the past two days, John and I have gone hiking about an hour before sunset in the hills where we live. I have to say…it has been magical! It is the perfect time of day to take in the sweeping views, breathe in fresh air, take lots of vibrant photos, and allow just enough time to head back in before the mountain lions make an appearance!

(I promise, we hike on real paths, not just paved roads in the middle of suburbia! Ha!)

I feel compelled to tell you…I got this shirt today at Target for $2.50! Sarah, are you proud of me?? Haha!

In other resolution-fulfilling news, I have been feeling mighty creative lately and have cranked out the last few pages for my Holiday 2009 book! And what a joy it has been to be in a crafting mood again!

Latest obsession: creating hidden journaling spots, a la the “But wait, there’s more” tab on the left layout.

Can’t seem to finish a layout these days without a touch of measuring tape and ribbon!

Layout on the right is one of my new faves. I hadn’t meant for the Hambly body-form rub-on to go over the photo, but when it accidentally touched and wouldn’t lift off, I decided I really liked it there! LOVE rub-ons! So fun.

Envelope contains photos from a day spent in Glendale, enjoying the Christmas festivities. Easier to house the majority of the pictures in an envelope while featuring just one photo as the “representative”, if you will.

One thing I thought would be fun to have in my book was screenshots of websites I frequent and use them as a documentation of where I was at this time. I really loved playing with them and can’t wait to do it more often!

This particular envelope contains Christmas lists, tags, and little bits and pieces of the season that I know will be fun to look back on at a later date. The grey pouch on the right layout is from an old Abercrombie shirt that I bought years ago! It used to hold spare buttons, but now it is featured in my book! Love how recycling can take on so many forms…

I hope you all are fulfilling your Happy Lists as well! If you haven’t composed one yet, what are you waiting for???

There is so much fun to be had!
