Project Life Daily Journal 2016 + Giveaway

Happy Friday Peeps!!!

I am for one VERY glad Friday is here! This week has been one CRAZY BUSY week! lol Today I am sharing my Project Life Daily Journal for 2016 better late than never right? If you want to see all of what I shared so far on this you can click on the categories daily journal on the left side of my blog and it will pull up all the post's I've done so far on this. I shared my cover page below way back in Jan and wanted to touch on it quick here.

IMG_5490

This is the cover page for our 2016 Album. We decided to do the Daily Journal again dh thought it was cool to document each day even if it's a work day. hahaha I honestly think I've created a monster I never thought he would be this into it. lol I wanted to focus on one word this year and we decided to pick NEW. So this year's album focus on that. I was inspired by Ali Edwards One Little Word.

Definition of New: not existing before; made, introduced, or discovered recently or now for the first time.

Originally we just were going to do 1 new thing but instead decided to make it into a year of New things. Our NEW will focus on: trying new things, new adventures, new arrivals, new items and etc. Our cover page focused on the NEW Year and our NEW goals as a family. There are so many ways to look at the word New.

Today's layout I am using the retired Memories in the Making Project Life from last year's Occasion's Catalog. Right now this kit is in the Clearance Rack and available to purchase at a major discount. SCORE it's an awesome kit!! It

Memories in the Making Accessory

Memories in the Making Cards

On the backside of the cover page we each made out our New Goals for this year and documented what we want our album to focus on this year. Hubby of course had to work in his humor too. lol I mainly used the Memories in the Making Project Life Kit. I did use the Metallic Foil Doilies and Rhinestone Basic Jewels to step up my layout a little more. The top left corner card is my favorite thing we came up with and really fits the word NEW.

12 NEW Chapters
365 NEW Chances
NEW Adventures Await

Who knew the word NEW could have so many meanings!! It's pretty amazing really when you start thinking about it. So far it's been a wild year for us and little did we know what NEW adventures we would be on this year.....to be continued :)

Happy Thursday peeps!!

It continues to be wild here for us but we are doing great! It's really been insane; work, work, work, wedding, family events and pretty much cutting and hauling firewood nonstop! This is our only source of heat and the clock is ticking here before winter arrives with it's -40 below weather, so hubby and I pretty much have been eating, breathing and sleeping firewood! lol  But I am very happy to say we are half ways finally!!!

Life has been a whirlwind for sure!

I am still playing catch up here and I know ever time lately I say I will have lots to share then life gets in the way. lol But seriously I am trying to get back into the swing of things. With my disease working like we have been really takes a toll on me and I can't push my body it just won't let me. When my body says nope you need to sleep and rest now it's what has to happen or I end up having a seriously bad attack. It's one of the really frustrating things about this stuff.

Jar of Haunts Sudsol Pinterest Challenge #138 + Big News

Morning Peeps!

I am finally over this crud whoo hoo!! Boy was that stuff bad I wouldn't wish that on anyone. This past weekend my brother came home to help us at my parents house and we FINALLY made some progress. THANK GOD!!!

Cabinet Mom

We finished up all the trim in her craft room but a nameless hubby put a hole in a wall that we have to fix. Hahaha that's the way this entire project went. We finished and installed my mom's new cabinet, we just need to finish the doors. While routing out for the hardware we broke the bit. Of course. lol It looks awesome though and mom loves it!!

Windows

Old Carpet

Friday was another 15 hour day for us, we ripped out old carpet and finished up the trim around the windows in the living room and bedroom after many trips to menards for my dad. Of course it's about an 1 hour away one way. Hahaha My dog Gizmo once again wants to be in the middle of everything and annoyed my brother (I might have planned that) :)Then we prepped for Saturday.

New Carpet

Saturday was a 13 hour installing the new carpet that we finally got right but after a huge debate that it was the wrong color. ROFL It was a pretty big project and ummm interesting. We decided when it's time to do the carpet in our house that will be hired out. lol  Looks awesome though!! Parents love it and our happy so that's really all that matters. We still have quite a bit to finish up but now things can be moved back into place and not look like a bomb went off. It's been quite the adventure; lots of; frustration, bruises, cuts, WOWS, SERIOUSLY, laughs, quality time spent together as a family and best of all Mom's cooking. :)

IMG_2694

By Sunday Dh and I were tired but both finally felt good enough to start cutting our firewood. Ekkk the clock is ticking here. So we put in another 15 hour day but made very good progress. HOORAY

IMG_2701

My Dad's new way for us to cut firewood with his new toy. Hubby loved it no more bending over. lol Pretty busy weekend.

Morning Peeps!

Sorry I have been missing in action the last 3 weeks have been not fun here and has been a real struggle. Since my last post a lot has happened around here! We did finish painting and got the floor in my mom's craft room and then  over the weekend of Sept. 17-18 while doing all of this I ended up getting very sick with a second infection and bronchitis. I learned that secondary infections are a VERY bad thing to have. lol I had a 100-103 fever for 6 days and pretty much just slept. Hubby came down with my cold and our dog also got pretty sick too. Everything came to a screeching halt at my parents house and here. I am better than I was but still haven't gotten completely over this crud so taking it one day at a time. This past week has been quite the week we've had 5 deaths and 2 of them were family members :( So that's whats been happening around here.

Thanks for the emails and texts! I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life! I will be responding to all of you over the next 3 days getting caught up :) I'll also be posting twice a day on my blog too; to get caught up and wrap up my commitments for September :) Thanks for your patience, understanding and support!

I just love the greeting in this and think it's perfect to send to anyone it will be sure to put a smile on the recipient's face.

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Cut a piece of Soft Sky and Mint Macaron card stock. Ink the images from Seaside Shore Stamp Set in the coordinating colors to give it a tone on tone look when you stamp onto the card stock pieces.
  • Stamp the greeting in Calypso Coral ink onto Very Vanilla card stock. Zip it and a piece of Dapper Denim card stock through the Big Shot with the Scallop Circle Framelits die cutting them out.
  • Ink the fishes in Dapper Denim onto Very Vanilla card stock. Cut them out and attach to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Finish by adding Rhinestone Basic Jewels. So much cuteness with this card!
