cleaned up the first and lower level of the house for Thanksgiving. win.
kept it clean until Christmas. WIN! (i know. i am still glowing from that victory.)
project life the first year becky higgins came out with it. EPIC fail.
i made 2 months... not quite a full 2 months.
so i am trying to decide if i can keep it up. i love the idea. i have an instant printer. it is the idea of starting and adding anything new to our day. but i have time...
the project life album idea is still on the table... and i am waiting for me PL kit for studio calico... (great excuse to wait to start. neat.) and before i ever started to consider accomplishing a PL album, i decided to carry WITH me a SMASH 365 book.
so here is how my brain works. ha! i have to use a bag that i can CARRY the smash book with me, or i won't keep up. that is what i have in my head anyway... so i try out a bag that i got last year from fossil that was meant for a laptop bag i think. too big. i lasted 2 days with that mammoth thing.
so off to dillard's i go. i have it in my head it will be another fossil bag. i like fossil. and this is the time of year the fall fossil bags go on clearance. so lots of not-so-perfect candidates to look at. and then it happens... i wonder past and end up in the VERA BRADLEY section! yikes! i did a lil question posing on instagram. "is vera bradely "old lady"?" i get the go encouragement i need to keep the bag i bought. you see i had the SMASH album with me... so i knew for sure what size i needed...
i ended up with the vera bradely va va bloom mailbag.
that flap, conceals a section separate from the main compartment...
so i keep my SMASH album here...
*the day i started... i THEN noticed my SMASH album is bound upside down. true story. ((sigh))
that pocket in front of the section i keep my album??
that is where i keep a date stamp (studio calico), SMASH washi tapes (easy to tear on the go) adhesive (yes, the pen has glue, but it's nice having a roller on hand!) and some lil envelopes... i plan on throwing in a lil black cats eye black ink for the stamp so i can date stamp on the go too!
and my stuff... it has plenty of room for all on it's own! (sorry for the bad pic... hard to take a picture of the inside of your purse! :) )
so this is what i have done to keep me accountable! and the idea assessable. i am a "out of sight, out of mind" kinda gal!
i do not plan on adding to it every day... i plan on just adding when i think something is worth adding, or if i take a fuji instax pic, or have movie stubs...
here is my first entry... Alicia printed pics up from new years eve right away for us. so i put them right in!
ok-the other subject on the agenda! something on my "goals for this year" page. part of my "one little word"... "transformation"...
i decided to start back up with "Couch to 5K". I started it last year (wait-2011 actually) and stopped when i had some testing done. and that was all the excuse i needed to make it "not" habit anymore.
so there ya go. but it was doable... though i will say at this point, all jogging, even lame slow jogging, is hard. i know it will get easier. but it was hard. it will get easier. and i am sick and tired of my own excuses... so there ya go.
i did week 1 day 1 yesterday. i didn't die. i am here to tell about it.
my goal is the Color the Quads color run the first weekend in june.
i also put more of my natural/organic food beliefs into play. "transformation". yep. that's me.
in need of a transformation!
what about you? anything new going on? PL? SMASH book? trying to run/walk?
I would like to try pilates too... anyone try that before?
