30 days of lists | days 9 - 18

9.22.2014  at 8:00 AM

Do you make lists? I do. A lot. Then I lose them, or forget about them. Or kind of avoid them because I don't really want to do what's on the list. It's been better since I use my Filofax now, though.

The 30 Days of Lists class is a fun way to list and explore topics you've thought about but never put down on paper.


Day 9 | I Don't Have Time For

I used enamel dots and tucked my list inside a glassine bag.

Day 10 | Subjects I Can Talk About for Hours

Day 11 | Things I Finished So Far This Year

I used the reverse out of number stickers where I had already used the ones. Thrifty Mama to the rescue! This is the reverse side of the numbered card for Day 13.

Day 12 | My Must Have For A Night In

Day 13 | The Best Things About This Week

This is one of my favorite layouts. The card on the right is the front side from this list.

Day 14 | Best Places to Find Inspiration

That gold washi and the little heart make me smile!

Day 15 | Favorite Cliches

A blast from the past with this paper...I've had it hanging around since I was on the Momenta Design Team!

Day 16 | Posters on My Wall When I Was Growing Up

I think that pink chipboard tag has been in my stash from when I began scrapbooking back in 2010.

Day 17 | Reason To Believe In Yourself

If you can't believe in yourself, how do you expect others to?

Day 18 | Thing I Do That I Wish Made Me Money

I'm following my dream, are you?

the twinery + ruby rock-it | product showcase

Welcome to Day One of another great hop featuring goodies from The Twinery and Ruby Rock-It. You should have arrived here from 

If not, head on over to The Twinery blog so that you can start from the beginning and not miss a stop along the way...or a chance to win our fabulous prizes!

The Projects

DIY Notebook
I do adore a cute notepad, don't you? I seem to have my best ideas when I'm in the school pick-up line and now I'll have something cute to jot my ideas in. I used my Crop-o-Dile to punch holes at the top of my DIY notepad made with copy paper to thread several strands of Solid Blossom baker's twine through. I added a cardstock sticker to a punched bracket shape for extra cuteness.

Project Life December Daily
If you're a fan of pocket page scrapbooking, make your own! Even though Oriental Chic is not a holiday-themed collection, I made it work by adding in a touch of Solid Peapod baker's twine while using the gorgeous berry red papers. 

What do you think, does it work?

#projectlife #pl #pocketpages #scrapbooking

Gift Set
I love making and gifting homemade presents. I made another DIY notebook and this time, created a gift tag for the package once it's wrapped. It's always fun to make extra little projects when your scrappy tools are all out anyway.

five minute notepad transformation

9.17.2014  at 8:00 AM

Life is too short to use a notepad that's not cute, don't you think? I have all sorts and types of random notepads lying around, and I bet you do as well. I grabbed this one to work with, but have also used spiral bound notebooks and school composition books with success.

I prefer to use my Elmer's glue sticks when working on a project like this one. After applying the glue to the back of my cardstock, I can place it on the cover and still have a few seconds to move it around until it's pretty close to a perfect fit. With a dry adhesive, I can't do that. I then flip the cover over and trim away any excess paper.

Pretty amazing how some pretty paper and cute embellishments can transform a notepad in five minutes. Makes that To Do list a little less intimidating, doesn't it?

Thanks for stopping in!


5 on the 5th | september 2014

9.15.2014  at 8:00 AM

Black + White was the theme this month. It just came to me when I was driving the girls to school and had on a black top with white stripes. Funny enough, as I sit here to type up this post 10 days later, I'm wearing the same top as in the first photo.

#50nthe5th #photochallege #photography #projectlife

Some months, I have no idea what I'm going to take a photo of. I wonder, "How can I take more photos of our everyday, extraordinarily ordinary lives that will be any different than the other two years' worth of 5 on the 5th photos?" 

But, each month when I do these roundup posts, the photos tell me a story of our lives. Little bits that would have been forgotten if not for the photos that I took the few minutes to take.


1 | A foggy morning greets us as we pull out of the drive and wind out way around the mountain. We don't see sunshine until we hit the straightaway heading into the town where the girls go to school. We are often treated to glorious sunrises, but today we saw a bright, hazy sun already above the mountaintops. Photo courtesy of Victoria

2 | I cannot tell a lie, I love my two cups of coffee in the morning. And it's even better when Mr. wRight is on vacation and we can spend that time alone together talking about everything and nothing.

3 | That's my hottie aka Mr. wRight! Replacing the basement door that's been here since Mamaw and Papaw Wright built this home is something we've needed to do but it's a little bit of history going away. The old door has that cool wavy glass in it. But, they are also single pane glass panels and leaks in cold air. And it's very short, that's why he's knocking a row of block out to make the new door fit, which will match the mud porch door. The door is exceptionally wide, too, and I tell G that he may have to push me through in my wheelchair {since I'm 8 years older than him}.

4 | You know when you order a gift with all intentions of saving it for Christmas? I couldn't resist giving them their Lisa Leonard rings today. After excellent mid-term grades, it was a special treat. The rings are star shapes with a heart in the middle. Perfect.

4 | We had dinner in town with our tired handyman and a stop at The Home Depot. As Isabella and I were leaving, she saw the moon and thought we should take a photo for our 5 on the 5th black and white challenge.

5 | We're like two Grande Cappuccino's in a Chevrolet Suburban cup holder.

Yes, I know there are two #4's this month. Obviously, I got excited about taking photos that I lost count.
