I'm Still Alive

Wondering where I've been? Don't worry I'm still here. But all of my crafting/scrapbooking is packed up. Why you ask? Because in 1 week I will be moving! Hurrrrrraaaayyy! Boooooo! (the many emotions I'm feeling)

I recently accepted a job that will bring me closer to my hometown. I'm very excited for this new adventure. Needless to say, I'm still faaaar behind on my projects. My PL book has not been touched (except to pack it) since the last time I posted about it. I've been so busy packing and doing some last minute shopping. Yes, I said Michael's and Sephora. Clearly very important places. I was so pumped Michael's now carries PL but when I looked at the list of stores none of them were close to my new home :( And there's no Sephora close by either! Every girl needs a good crafting store and make up store close by!

Of course, wedding planning has been put on hold for just a minute too...except I did buy a few things for my future …

PL- Last of April and Beginning of May!

Time for another confession. I've had these pages done since the beginning of May, but I've been holding them hostage. I didn't want to overwhelm everyone with all of my posts! I needed to spread it out, make you wait. And I had no idea if I was going to continue on this whole I'm actually getting these done on time path. Would you be surprised if I told you that path was short lived? I have not worked on any of the pages after these. My shoe box of pictures and trinkets is filling up I better get working!

week of  April 21- if you remember in my last PL post I made a page for West Virginia. Well that trip was a week long but hit at an award time. My trip to Nashville is actually later in the week. I was struggling on what to do with it so I decided to just do a page for each trip.

weekend of April 27th- I had a lot that happened the week of the 21st so I made a page just for the weekend!
week of April 28th-I did a horrible job at documenting what I did this we…

Wedding Planning Mania!

Do you smell that? It smells like flowers and love. Haha, that was so lame. But wedding season is in the air! Although I still have plenty of time before my big day (and no I haven't decided a date yet), I'm feeling a lot of pressure to make it extraordinary. So many people are aware of my creative gene that I think it's safe to say I have a lot to live up to.

Pinterest is a godsend. Yet it is my worst enemy. I would be lying if I said I didn't have a dream wedding Pinterest board before I was engaged...But I wasn't one of those girls who had HUNDREDS of pins. Plus Brandon and I had been together for 4 years, so I figured that was enough justification.
My original ideal wedding was set in the fall. It was going to have pumpkins for the main decor and burnt orange and deep purple would be the colors. Then I got engaged and started browsing on Pinterest...and that all changed. I totally wiped my board clean. I loved the idea of getting married in the spring and using…

My Trip Book- My 2 Weeks of Adventures (pt 2)

Time for Part Deux of my crazy traveling trip! I had full intentions of getting a lot of my scrapbooking completed this week but my actual life had other plans.
Around 8:00 last night I decided to crack down and knock my Tennessee trip on its tooshie. I was really feeling it at first. I finished the first page...I was no longer in the mood to scrapbook. Grrrr. I just hate when that happens. You're all pumped and feel like you're going to accomplish A TON. So you drag out all of your scrapbook stuff. You work on your first page and that feeling you once had of motivation has suddenly left. AND it took you longer to drag out all of your supplies than it did to make that first page. And that's what happened. But I wasn't going to let that stop me!

Here are the pages that I powered through last night and can check off my to-do list. BOOYAH!
