one list at a time

4.27.2015  at 8:00 AM
Documenting your story, your life, your thoughts and ideas is always a good thing. It takes time and commitment, yes, but it's so worth the journey. Why note start with one list at a time.

#lists #journaling #mixed media #minialbum #book

What began as a series of lists documenting me at 49 has turned into a saga...I turned 51 this year. I'm finished with my lists and who really cares if I created my lists at 49 1/2 or 51. No one. The important this is that I started AND completed a project and I feel darn good about that.

I Am

I have lots of favorite pens, each serving a different purpose, but my favorite color to write in is black.

Some of my Go To beauty products.

Oh, the memories. And we still talk about it. And I still don't know for sure. Will I ever?

I don't recall what I had hoped to title this list, but I can only think it would be My Wish.

they all start out small

They all start out small.


Spring is my most favorite season of the year. To take a walking tour around the property to see if all the plants made it through the winter is an adventure for me. I truly enjoy it with all my heart. I'll often sneak out in my houseshoes and morning cup of coffee to see if there's anything new that popped up overnight.

Remember this? Well it's true.

This gorgeous and wild and untamed pink azalea began in a little one gallon bucket as a Mother's Day gift from Zach probably 15 years ago. At the time, I planted it just outside our basement door. As our landscaping plans changed, I moved it. Several years ago, it was moved again to this spot. It has survived cold winters, a multitude of puppies interested in chewing on everything, and me - the mover of the bush. It's really a perfect spot for this pink beauty because as its buds appear and the blooms begin to open, the leaves on the trees around it are beginning to green as well creating a perfect backdrop.

The hosta's to the left of the azalea all began from a clump of hosta plants that Gordon's Mamaw Wright planted many years ago. I keep thinning them out and dividing them and filling in spots around the yard...all from the original plant. They start out small and grow into big, lush plants in just a few years.

The sickly hydrangea bush to the right is also from an original plant from Gordon's Mamaw. I refuse to give up on it and will probably just have to prune it almost to the ground to bring it back to life. We had a hard winter and I so want to know that this one will make it. Hydrangea's are one of my all time favorite flowers and I want to be able to give cuttings off of it to the kids when they have their own homes.

When I see this azalea every day as I head out the driveway dropping Isabella at the barn to feed the kitty and then driving my two babies to school, I think about my oldest baby no longer living at home far away in Charleston and how he was so proud to give this gift of love. Who knew that this small  gift would continue to bring me smiles and joy 15 years later.

So, just as this azalea started out small, so did my Zach. He's grown, too. He's now 23 and 6' 1". And they're both happy where they are. For now. 

Thanks for stopping in!

#listersgottalist + a giveaway

4.20.2015  at 8:00 AM

I'm playing along with another list challenge on Instagram and taking a much more low key approach to the whole process {as opposed to the #30lists project}. After reviewing the list I knew that I wasn't going to journal each topic or even post a topic on Instagram every day, but I was going to have fun decorating my lists, that's for sure.

THE LISTS
I don't have enough letter stickers for all the titles, so I usually just choose a word or two to highlight and use my handwriting for the rest. These stickers and chipboard elements are from My Mind's Eye and the sticky note is from the Target Dollar Spot.

Sneak a peek at my #listersgottalist mini book using a smash book style journal from the iloveitall.etsy.om shop!

If money were no object, my list of Places I Want to Go would be pages long, but this is a pretty good start. I've never even camped in an RV, but for some reason I've always thought it would be fun to rent an RV and do a weeks-long tour of the Western US!

#lists #listersgottalist #travel #sightseeing

Ahhh, wouldn't you just love to see the good in all people like we did when we were kids?

#listersgottalist #lists #list #smashbook #kids #journaling

I'm not creeped out by many things or afraid of many things or really have any phobias that I can think of, but that doesn't stop me from occasionally thinking of things and second-guessing myself.

Like you didn't already know this, but I do love to craft with washi tape! And you can find more shipping tags in the shop.
