WEEK TWO: January 9, 2011

I'm thinking about making the one frame a day album a bit more than that.  I wanted to include mulitiple pictures when I get some great shots of Andrew or if we have a special day because really this is my scrapbook now.  I no longer do a scrapbook of special occasions, etc and quite frankly I take A LOT of pictures that just sit on my hard drives.  I'm tired of not looking at them!

So occasionally I will throw in a few spreads that have their own days (Okay so this one required two spreads.)  I just loved these silly pictures of Andrew in the snow and couldn't just choose one!

It's a New Year and a new...

way of documenting 365!  I will be doing everything completely digital this year and creating the pages as each week passes.  I've come to realize it's the only way I'll have a complete album by the end of the year and can actually hold somemething in my hands.  I'm even toying with the idea of doing the same thing with my 2010 pictures because who knows when I'll have enough time to write out the journaling for the last year.  Probably won't happen! 

This year I found some awesome/simple templates by Vol. 25 that will make it super easy.  I just love her designs!

So instead of sharing a picture a day, I will be posting my completed weekly album pages.  That will give me a bit of pressure to actually create the pages not to mention a lot less postings. :)

11.23.10 -  It's time for beautiful holiday bokeh again! 


11.22.10 - Christmas is a happy time and I'm not trying to be sad but the past few days my heart has been heavy, like it tends to be around this time of year.  It's been 7 years since we lost our first baby and while I may not have been that far along it was still a traumatic experience and one I wish I never had to live through.  However in life to experience the joys you also have to experience sorrow.  Our life is so full of joy and for that I am truly blessed and thankful.


11.21.10 - It was foggy this morning.. something we don't see very often here!  Reminds me of home. :)


11.20.10 - andrew is having a great time figuring out what he wants for Christmas.  He can't get enough of the circular ads in the paper.


11.19.10 -  Hello there Fred.  Nice to meet you!  (sorry for the lapse in days but I was out of town on a girls trip!)  I can home to a little elf named Fred.
