Unbelievable. Seventeen weeks into the year, and I’m still caught up on Project Life. That’s 1/3 of the way through, far more than I ever expected. And now I’m getting caught up on posting pictures online.
Week 10 was Jasmine’s first week at preschool. It’s hard to believe it’s already been two months! She loves it! It was also a week of awful awful morning sickness, which is why it’s super simple. I used the Becky Higgins Seafoam kit here, and threw the entire spread together in about two hours. The photo collage on the second page is of a trip to an iron mine and refinery here in Sierra Leone, and it probably took the longest out of everything.
Weeks 11-12 were also without pictures, due to
morning all day every day sickness. I got my iPad Mini in the mail, and spent every moment not at work curled up in the family room, reading and complaining about how miserable I was.
Lots of Studio Calico Darling Dear in Week 13. Every year since I can remember, Mom has made my brother and I Easter baskets. She mailed them to me when I was studying aborad and when I was a Peace Corps Volunteer. And when I started dating Bertrand, she started sending him one too. Now that there’s three of us, she sends three baskets. Last year, Jasmine was too small to really enjoy them. This year, she got her first real taste of chocolate. Heh.
Weeks 14 and 15 were (almost) pictureless, so I combined the one picture I got with my week 16 trip to London! While I was there, I made a pilgrimage to Blade Rubber, London’s only stamping store. The ladies running the shop were lovely, and I was able to pick up some great London-themed papers!
Last week actually spent several days on my desk, waiting for me to finish putting it together. Most of it is Citrus Twist’s March kit, along with some older washi (my first washi is still my favorite washi!), and some great butterfly embellishments I’ve had since before Jasmine was born. I’m glad I was finally able to use them!
