Hello week two & there are two things I already LOVE about this year of Documenting 1. I love 9x12 and the change was something I wanted to take on a while ago and thought the New Year is a great start for that. I am not missing the few pockets that I cut off & it hasn't really changed my process at all.
2. I love that it does allow me to become more flexible with what pocket I need for each week, if I want more 3x4 then I just create more of them but if I want a few 4x6 pockets then I stick with that and don't sew them up.
I use mostly design A and then sew up the top and bottom 4x6 pocket then cut along the edge to get the 9x12 size ... I know that Studio Calico has some great design pages coming as they annouced over CHA week. Might buy a few but I also like that I create my own pages to fit what I need to document.
Using a cut out number from mt stendig calendar again & date stamped the week with Becky Higgins date stamp. So far I am liking how each week is being present in the spreads. To the left a little journaling on Seafoam edition card.
Over the course of the year, you can still bet on seeing a ton of wood veneers on my spreads ... as long as I have them I am using them up. Usually I will use Martha Stewart glue pen to adhere the veneer but this time I used my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher stapler for different texture. I will continue to use both.
I am VERY much grateful to be working this year on Ali Edwards Creative Team, I made one of her recent brushes into a 3x4 card once again ... "make it happen" is hers and you can find it here. LOVE that set!
Photo above is another awesome Studio Calico card & I added in a repeated date stamp on the top portion and then added on the "move forward" wood veneer again with tiny attacher.
This week we decided that it would be a great time to make a little one on one time with the kids and parents. I took Ethan to see The Hobbit 3 and Tyler took Ava out for mini golf and Ikea hotdogs (they went with friends). I think that this was very much needed and it really made me aware of time - we are always around with each other here and there but it's so important to get seperate time with one another then regroup all together.
Swim night is back and the kids are loving being back in the water after the Christmas + New Years break. I am seeing big strides already and love how excited Ava gets in the change room with the responsiblities of picking the locker & then pinning her key on her suit ( I help her with the pinning part ).
That wraps up week two. Above is the full view here ... I made three 4x6 spots and twelve 3x4 spots it's fun playing around with pockets & what will go where. Today I also made my monthly dividers and will post that later this week. Hint yes they are painted ... lol.
