#30 Lists March 2014

1779963_676022292449854_2045579731_n

Giving it another go. I bummed out on the December lists – I will go back and finish them though cause one of my aims this year is to finish started projects.

This time round I’ll be blogging my list each day then adding them to my book when I feel like it.

March will see my 4th time listing and I do admit I kinda love it AND it’s creating something my kids can look back at in the future and see what I was like.

You can follow along the fun by checking out the #30Lists hashtag or do yourself a favour and jump on over to the 30 Days of Lists site and sign up for this round.

Not sure what it’s all about?

30 Days of Lists is a semi-annual journaling challenge for Listers, from Kam of Campfire Chic and Amy of Lemon and Raspberry.

Only 5-10 minutes per day are really needed. While you’re waiting for someone, or when you’re the passenger in the car, jot down your list from the journaling prompts. You can even download the list topics ahead of time to get a jump start!

30 Days – 30 Lists. Simple as that. Lots of fun. Check my previous lists for a hint of what you’ll be in for if you join in.

Polly! Scrap Kits blog hop–December 2013

polly-250x250

Welcome to the Polly! Scrap Kits blog hop celebrating our stamps! Leave a comment on any of the blogs in the hop to go in the running to win your choice of the 3 stamp sets in the Polly store. The giveaway will close in one week, so make sure you comment before Monday 16th December 2013.

I was super excited to join in on the Polly! Scrap Kits blog hop this month. The stamps in store are amazing and I had a great time playing with the Christmas stamps to make some journaling cards and filler cards for my Project Life pages. A few may even turn up in my Elf book and maybe even my JYC album 😉

I’ve used the cute Aussie Christmas set and the stamps that come in the amazing December Memories kit. The stamps are super versatile and would be great for Project Life, December Daily, Journal your Christmas, cards and so much more.

Some exciting news

I applied earlier this month for a Creative Team spot at a new Project Life challenge blog, not thinking I’d get picked. I got home today from a trip to town to check out the Launceston Harvest Market (& a little shopping at Shiploads) to an email offering me a spot on the team! I’m super excited to be part of the team at Life in Details. I’ve also been asked to be CT coordinator too so that could be fun.

What is Life in Details?

We are a challenge blog for those that love all things Project Life. Whether you are just starting out or are a veteran, this challenge blog is for you.
Challenges will be posted on the 1st of the month and due the last day of the month.
We will also have tutorials and share Project Life inspiration as well

I’m looking forward to working with some other great scrappers – Amanda Sheen-Thorne, Amanda Francis, Amber Reade, Darcy Lagrandeur, Katherine Prefol and Rachel Leanna

Check out the blog on the 1st September for the first challenge. It’ll be a good one. Life in Details Challenge blog
