monthly merriment


Since Domino is coming to an end (RIP) I was checking out another one of my fave pubs from Australia. I was inspired by one of Real Living's articles here. So I gave it my own spin and photographed random stuff that was on my desk and dresser. Thought it would be fun to do this every month.

-Bird earrings from my little brother.
-Polaroid of Collin & Avery at the beach last summer.
-Fabric from a soon-to-be-posted project I'm working on.
-Love digging through bags of old photos from my mom that need to be preserved into better photo albums. I am so grateful that she loved taking photos as much as I do.
-Missing my daddy more than I have words for.

-One of my fave songs on my ipod that I love doing yoga to & singing with at the top of my lungs in my car. (Dancing by Elisa)
-The card "For Like Ever" I found here and am going to use them for Valentine's Day this year but were initially bought for a project I worked on last year where I found something that inspired me for a scrapbook page. I made this scrapbook page with a photo from when Collin & I were engaged. Man, we were so young! Collin always teases me when I have such cheesy journaling.
Page found in CK's Get Creative with Type book- a must have!
Supplies:
Apparently, as evidence from the photo, other must haves include: fuzzy ear warmers, Great Lash mascara, my notebook that I carry everywhere, yellow cardigan (Forever 21) & of course, sugar cookies.

Such a cute idea. Thanks for sharing.

Love this idea. I am so kicking myself for not doing the 365 photo project. This may be a nice substitute for this year (and I've only missed January). Thanks for the inspiration as always. You're the greatest!

Love this idea!!! And love that sweet pictire of you and Collin. Do you two age at all??
I have noticed there is a bit of a theme on your blog at the moment.... Australian singer Lenka and fab Australian magazine Real Living (my Fave). OK maybe not a theme, but a bit of Aussie Love.

I love the sweater...very fun colors!

Melissa said...

Liz!! I need your help! I'm trying to add blinkies or badges to the side of my blog. I see you have Studio Calico on yours and a few others. I use blogspot too, but I can't figure out how to put these on! Can you help me please?

Allie said...

So many delicious colors! And now I want sugar cookies...

Chappyswife said...

This is a great idea! I did something like this year before last with all of my Christmas ornaments.

As I took them off of the tree, I lay them in groups and took a pic of them so that I could journal where I got each one and why it is special to me, while only having a few pics. That way, if something happened to them or later on when I am gone, my boys and their families will know why I had each one and what it meant to me.

I love that blue headband! Did someone (or you) make it or did you buy it??
