This year has been busy, busy at home, with a 3 year old I rarely find time to sit at the computer and do a blog post, and by the time night comes I just want to veg out and watch House Rules and not move for the rest of the evening, so I’m afraid the blog has been neglected. (It has also taken me all day to get this blog post typed)
Iv’e been spending a bit of time at home, trying to keep the house tidy for inspections, so we haven’t made many adventures outside lately, I realised I hadn’t taken any photos for weeks, so yesterday I grabbed my camera and new wide angle lens and followed my youngest around for the day, inspired by the lovely Molly whom I have followed on her blog for a long time, seeing her gorgeous photos of her kids, just as they are, in their environment, no set up lighting, just as it is then and there, so this is what happened. Excuse the washing.
If you would like a storytelling session like this one, please contact me, I would be honoured to share a part of your day
It’s been a while since I took these images, this little fella is eating solids now!! How I love to look at a tiny baby sleeping. I prefer to shoot more natural newborn images, and some cuddles with mum.
Some of you may have heard of Project Life before, but I have only known about it for about the last year. Basically, Project Life is a much simpler way of scrapbooking, just slide your photos into pages (like a photo album) but also journal on specially made cards. I had dismally failed at keeping up with any kind of scrapbooking after my second child came along. I saw Pink Ronnie instagramming one of her page layouts and I was instantly in love. Last birthday I ordered a Project Life mini album and core kit fully intending to get started but a year later I still hadn’t started. I was so behind in printing my photos out, I had none to start with and the mini album wasn’t quite what I needed for the amount of photos I needed to print.
Finally this year I came across Harvey Norman selling their own version of the project life albums and pages, two for the price of one, and I grabbed the opportunity to get 4 and also asked for Spotlight gift vouchers for my birthday so that I could purchase some more core kits and pages. I printed out a bunch of photos (from 2012) and got started!
I also scoured the net for free project life cards to print…you can find my list on pinterest
I created my own filler cards for my daughters pages with some existing scrapbooking paper and stickers.
I haven’t done all the journaling yet but I will get there! Now I need to print 2013!
