prepping pages in my 30 days of lists mini album

In between a few craft projects, some ironing, vacuuming and cooking today, I managed to squeeze in some time to prep pages for my 30 Days of Lists mini album. I didn't go overboard and I didn't prep too much as I like the fun of sitting down and getting creative wth each list prompt.

***  I've already added list prompts to some of my pages, but was able to cover them so as not to spoil the fun for those of you who prefer to be surprised each day.

PREPPING MY PAGES
On many of my pages, I'm using items from I Love It All and I'll link those up for you. I'm also using up my random number and alpha stickers as well...you know those sheets of stickers that have letters that won't spell much anymore. So, I search and hope that I have stickers that I can at least spell at least one word of the list prompt.

loading up with goodies

I've been loading up the shop with goodies, and there is more to come. I hope you'll check back often to see if there's something new for you to love! I'll soon have it all photographed and listed, which is less fun than actually creating the goodies to list.

Stroll down and browse while you sip your mug of coffee or cup of tea.

Holiday
When I craft, I love using bright and colorful color combinations which is in direct contrast to my home with has more muted tones. 

I am crushing on this set here, how about you?


There's been an explosion of interest in the Midori style notebook inserts that fit inside leather or fabric covers. Here's a whole section of inserts now stocked and ready to ship.


I'll be using this journal for the December 30 Day of Lists class, REGISTER HERE, but many customers have chosen this journal, too. Find out more about the class here.


Tag + Embellishment Kits
New to the shop this year are Tag + Embellishment Kit Collections in a fun array of colors. Each kit is a bit different, but they all have fun clips, tags, labels and bags of some sort.

We all have a favorite color and now there are collections based on colors to help brighten your life and make your scrapbook layouts, mini albums, list journals, mixed media and art collage projects and even Project Life even more balanced and creative.





Gratitude Journals
Gratitude Journals are ideal for documenting thankfulness, gratefulness and blessings of life. Created with the everyday, normal, ordinary moments of life in mind, this journal will be a delightful way to chronicle the simple joys of your year or a variety of other happenings that are equally document worthy.






I hope you enjoyed the new goodies and had the chance to click over to the shop and check out a few things. What would you like to see more of in the shop?

Did you hear? The gals at 30 Days of Lists are having a December class!

I registered yesterday and took a peek at the lists and they're good. I'll share on Monday how I'm going to set up my journal by prepping my pages with a few embellishments and bits and baubles. If you don't want to miss out, be sure to follow me on Bloglovin'.

THE JOURNAL
I just feel that with the busy season in the shop, the general busyness of the holiday season in general and all the extra activities we'll be doing with our advent calendar and school programs that if I wanted to participate and have fun and not fall behind, that I should really prep my mini book so that the few minutes I'll have to journal {in the car pick up line or after everyone is in bed} will be fun and stress free. 

Aren't the embellishments fun and colorful? Buy it and mention you saw it on the blog and I'll include this goodie bag in your package. 

SPECIAL OFFER
Buy this journal and mention you saw it on the blog and I'll include the goodie bag pictured below in your happy mail package. You must mention you saw it on the blog during time of purchase to get the goodie bag.

thankful banner printable

Our Halloween decorations are down and back in the storage bins, but we have a few ceramic pumpkins and leaves and nuts filling in until Christmas decorations make their appearance. 

My rule is that we don't decorate for Christmas until after my two November babies have their birthdays. Sometimes, Zach's birthday falls after Thanksgiving so we wait.

I've noticed that people have been pinning the THANKFUL banner I created a few years ago which got me to thinking I need to make another since I can't find the original anymore.

THE LOOK
Here's how it looked back in 2010.


THE DOWNLOAD
Here's the download, in case you want to make one, too.


I'll be making a new banner today, how about you? If you make one, snap a pic and leave a link of your photo in the comments below and I'll choose a winner for a $10 shop credit to I Love It All. Winner will be chosen Monday, November 16, 2015.
