Project Life week 17

The Mom Creative


Hi there, I am Conni, and welcome to my Project Life

I Love pictures, taking them, looking at them, having others look at them!

I am a scrapbooker as well, but I am very strict about getting every picture off of the camera, and out of the computer! I use the project Life album as a Photo album for our every day pictures, and still scrapbook the ones that have meaning

I did much better with taking more pictures this week!!
and yes one of these weeks I will get caught up to date



Easter week
- the Easter Bunny brought us little chocolate animals
-Our tile floor got fixed
-We had movie dates
-The quancet door got put on
-Our BBQ took a nose dive off of the deck from the wind
-Cody got a new gun (the gophers better watch out now)
-Cody and Josh got to go to a car show


 The big kids went to see The Hunger Games, while Josh and I went to The Lorax




I used the digital version of the Clemetine Kits this week, which I printed with my printer and then used the items, for a Black and White theme this week

I came across a sketch challenge on Split Coast Stampers, a week ago and thought it would be fun to play along. I have quite a few cards I need to make in a few month period so any help I can get putting them together is great.

This sketch is from My Favorite Things Stamps

Here is the sketch


Here is my card



This was my first try at paper piecing for her shirt, and my first try at making a fan fold flower

the inside



I picked up this idea on a few other blogs,
 to make the inside of the card just as nice as the outside.

Happy Monday

I am a scrapbooker as well, but I am very strict about getting every picture off of the camera, and out of the computer! I use the project Life album as a Photo album for our every day pictures, and still scrapbook the ones that have meaning

Still not too many pictures and an insert this week


-Steph got her braces off!!
-We had to make an Easter Bonnet
-We got a snow storm, almost as much snow this time as we had all winter



This is the picture that the Orthodontist gave us after we got her braces off,

Project Life week 15


The Mom Creative

Hi there, I am Conni, and welcome to my Project Life

I Love pictures, taking them, looking at them, having others look at them!

I am a scrapbooker as well, but I am very strict about getting every picture off of the camera, and out of the computer! I use the project Life album as a Photo album for our every day pictures, and still scrapbook the ones that have meaning

My cousin and her daughter came from Calgary for a visit to the farm this week



They got right into the swing of things and help with chores and everything!  Even collected the eggs!

She was a great help, especially for taking pictures, I have wanted pictures of chore time for a while but it is hard to take pictures of yourself, and when Iask my husband to, he takes 1 and then forgets about the camera



( now we have proof that I DO help with the chores!)

I used designer paper from Simple Stories again, as well as the flip side of the We R Memory Keepers page protector from last week

Wednesday and some Blog questions


null
I am joining with Mamarazzi, (haven't done this in forever!!),  for her We Want to Know Wednesday!!  This Wednesday the questions are about my blog, which is interesting for me, I feel, much like my clothing styles, my blog doesn't really have a style it fits into either, I guess I am a floater.

So here are this weeks questions:
{1} Please describe your blog. Does it fall into one category or many? How has it changed from post one?
I started my blog as a craft blog, making cards and showing them off. it turned to a photography blog when I started doing that, then it went to some what of a personal blog, with recipes and things I made, and I tried the What I Wore Wednesday, but, let's get real I don't wear anything interesting, jeans and yoga pants with t-shirts.  That is what works for me, and what my hubby likes so I can't see it changing any time soon.  I am trying to find my own style, but seem lost, I like to share the things I make and the pictures I take.


{2} What 3 things do you LOVE about blogging?
- The genuine friendships I have made.  I have "met" some great people


- Having a sounding board, it's nice to know I am not alone.

- The ideas I find, there are tons of creative people out there!!

{3} What 3 things do you DISLIKE about blogging?
-I have over 11000 view, but no where near that in comments, I would like to think if your took the time to view and read what I have written, you could take the time to comment, I mean we all love blog comment right??

-?
-?

{4} What 3 things do you WISH OTHER BLOGGERS would do? Any tips for them?
-. Enable email, so we can continue the conversation.


- Get rid of word verification. It makes commenting hard. Commenting should be easy.

-I do not like it when I leave a comment and ask a question and the blogger just answers it under the original comment, I DO NOT check back on blog posts I have already seen, I would much rather a reply via email, that way I can see that you have read my comment and acknowledged it

{5} I know we all have lots of blogs we read, but what are 3 blogs your never miss?

hhhmmmm this is a tough one, I have lots of blogs I follow, but don't check on daily, I have lots of blogs in my favorites list, but again don't check on them daily, for now I am not sure what my favorites are.

Mamarazzi has been one of the great friends I have met while blogging, she has been a great help, and she is the hostess with the mostest!!

Thanks for stopping by,
Happy Wednesday

Again not too many pictures this week

I seen something on Julie's blog, where she took 1 picture and made it big to spread across several of the photo spots, and have been wanting to do this as well.  This wasn't the best picture but hey.


both pages together
-The kids wrestled
-Dad and Josh baked a cake
-Mom got sexy new boots
- Our poor tree got blown over, (we did stand it back up and tied it down,
hopefully it will re-root and survive)
-Cody's Heifer got to be the fist cow in the new barn!


This is an iphone picture taken while my 2 oldest were wrestling, my daughter is actually laughing in
 the picture, even though it looks other wise

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Tuesday
