Doing Things ... MY WAY

Hi friends I am back ... I got busy doing my Project Life 2011

I did not order Becky Higgins Project Life Kit for my PL 2011.
I am going to get the Clementine Edition Kit for my PL 2012
but I will do all of that when the photo pocket pages I 
wanted will be back in stock on February (hopefully)

Okay ... back to my Project Life 2011
I decided to make my own PL kit for 2011
I found out that JoAnn Fabrics on line is having a sale
on scrapbooking stuff

So I ordered a 12 x 12 album and 3 sets of photo pockets 

and the BEST part of all ... I only paid $20.96 !!!

Here are my loot when they arrived
 American Crafts 12 x 12 Modern D-Ring Album

We R Memory Keepers 12 x 12 photo sleeves
I am quite happy with my loot but most of all I am very happy
with my SAVINGS !!!

Next blog I will share my Project Life 2011

Day 13

 Most of my pictures this week are about my

stubborn COUGH.  I am feeling a little better
but my voice is still not back to normal after
losing it 3 days ago.

Project Life 2012 Update

I am still waiting for Becky Higgins' page protector to be available
on Amazon before i could start assembling my PL book

Monday ... Not a good day to start the week

Project 365 + 1
Day 9

Day 8

Day 7

This is NOT a good day to start the week !
Yes, you read it right folks.
I am under the weather since Sunday and to make matters
worse ... Baby Jayden is not feeling  too good either ...
oh my ... what a combination!
I cannot wait for this sickie season to be over.

We were finally able to pack all our 
Christmas ornaments last Saturday.

Even though I am sick, I still remember to take a
picture each day for my 365 + 1 Project and 
for Project Life.  I got enough pictures to start
Project Life all I need is to order the 
Becky Higgins kit from Amazon. I am also looking
into the possibility of trying out her Project Life
DIGITAL version which you can access through

I hope you folks stay healthy this season!

Day 6 ... Lingering and A Package

Project 365 + 1 ... Day 6

We STILL have all our Christmas decorations up in our house.
I am hoping to take them all down this weekend.
I am glad to learn from my Facebook friends that I am not the 
only one with decors still up.

A Package

Today the book I ordered from Walmart arrived.
This is my first time ordering a photo book from Walmart.
As usual I am not expecting a lot from this.
I used Walmart instead of my usual Blurb because of their

I had my December Daily Entries made into a photo book.
I ordered a 5x7 hardbound format and it costs me $22.01 with FREE shipping.
It took more or less a week before it arrived.

The pictures were printed okay.
There were a lot of pictures that got cropped.
Maybe because my pictures were NOT made into a 5x7 format
and maybe because I should have picked a bigger photo book size.
Anyway here are some pages of my December Daily 2011 ...

Day 5 ... Breathe

My Little Word for 2012 is


this will be my reminder for the year especially on stressful times

I was able to use this word last night when our power outlets went out.
Thank goodness the problem got resolved this morning.

Whatever we are experiencing good or bad
we just have to stand back and ...

Day 3 ... A Nice Break

I just found out from my friend Mike who just finished his 365 Photo Project that
this year it is actually 366 days of photos ... ahhhh talk about
PRESSURE ... hahahaha (now i have to come up with ONE MORE additional
picture for the year)

Today's 365 Project is dedicated to my father in law Juan N. Wilson who
passed away 9 days ago 

For AE's Project Life ...

Yesterday I watched a movie with my son John.
My hubby Joseph took care of baby Jayden.
The movie was great.
I am a Tin Tin fan.  I have been reading the comic book
since I was in high school and I have a collection of all
the Tin Tin comic books.

I had so much fun with my movie date with John.

It is such A NICE BREAK from all the stress that I
have been through lately.

Thank You Lord for this opportunity ... I truly appreciate it.

New Year ... New Projects

This 2012 I decided to participate in 365 Project
where I will take a snapshot everyday.
I am also going to partake in Ali Edwards'
365 Project Life where I will attempt to put
into a creative scrapbook my everyday life
this 2012.
I had so much fun joining AE's December Daily
project and was amazed that I was able to finish it.
That is why this year I decided to document my
everyday life through pictures and creative

So, for the first day of January, here is my first entry :

One Filipino tradition for good luck in the New Year is that you should have
13 different round fruits on the dining table to welcome the New Year
