Here are some shots of the Feb 5-11 week, and the first half of last week. Just need to print one more picture to finish off the end of last week.
Included the tickets from a Disney on Ice performance and lots of journaling about visits with friends, etc. Love that I’m getting these little stories out before they’re just gone or sitting on my “to scrap” list forever.
A watercolor picture my daughter painted at school, some random ephemera- receipt from morning coffee run, Ryan’s ski pass from her lessons, email from Paper Crafts Magazine accepting two of my cards for publication – woohoo!!! That was the first time I’ve ever submitted anything, and I was so so so excited to be chosen. Can’t wait to see it in print. This is another story that I know would never get told but now I trimmed part of the email, wrote some journaling on a sticker and slapped it in there- done. Awesome.
This next week was tough- my daughter had a fever for literally eight days straight, and my husband had the stomach flu for the weekend. Still, managed to get a few pictures in and put in some little thoughts about what we did to cheer up my 4 year old while she was out of school sick for so many days. Included one of her Valentine’s that she sent to school for her friends. I’m loving mixing in some shots from my iPhone using the Instagram app – such a cool look. Also makes my iPhone pictures look better, since I have the 3G version with the not-so-nice camera.
I got an Instax camera for Christmas, and added in a shot from that too – perfect size for this album. I just need to play with it some more to learn how to best take photos with it. Problem is the film is expensive so it’s not like you want to take a ton of pictures to learn how. When’s the last time you’ve had to think about the price of film and making sure you have enough? Funny huh?
My daughter likes to tell me what of hers I can “put in your album”. She colored this picture for me during one of her sick days, and told me that it needed to go in my album. I was happy to put in an 8.5×11 page protector and stick it in. I’m usually told to take her things out since she likes to save them – which is why we have about 100 school papers and projects floating around the kitchen.
One of my favorite accidental discoveries was using these days of the week stamps from Studio Calico. I stamped the day in Jenni Bowlin Malted Milk ink, and it came out way too light colored to read. So, I inked it up again with the Memento London Fog and stamped on top – since it was clear I could almost get exactly over the original words. But, a few of the edges have the malted milk cream color sticking out, and I just love the vintage feel of it – so much so that I keep doing it over and over! love happy accidents
