Smashing Good Time!

This weekend I spent time with my friend Nicole Smash booking a new project! We decided to use the guidelines of Project Life with their 52 week challenge and capture moments but using our Smash books from K&Company! Here is some of the fun damage we did between Starbucks and our kitchen chaos! 

My new challenge along with our "52 weeks" will be using Instagram and filter creativity. 30 Day Photo Challenge! I'll be using the larger album and these following guidelines! Find me on Instagram "smashmylife" and I'll be sharing my progress and would love to see yours! Here is some examples from Pinterest...GOOD LUCK!

Christmas ready!

I did it! Told myself by the first week of November I would get my Christmas stuff up at Aubergine's! Thanks to Nicole from Raggedyoldannies (nagging me in the most positive way) and my friend Ginny who helped! It's all up and looking festive. Will work on some more cute ideas when I get back from a little weekend getaway! Here is my creative corner...

Christmas Prep

Pulling out all my Christmas finds and vintage items for upcoming holidays! I love keeping all my stuff visually accessible and organized! I just happened to come across this great find at Harbor Freight which can also be purchased online! Easy to put together just a bit time consuming BUT so worth it!!!

Fresh Start

It all started with remembering my password and then trying to navigate my blog to update! I'm feeling like a newborn with fresh eyes to this again and kind of excited to get back at this...

I'm not sure yet if I'm feeling thankful for being pushed by my super creative friend Nicole from Raggedyoldannies or if I should feel creative overload! SHE is great at keeping up with this social media and I will be struggling to remember to take photos and keep you posted. I'll do my best and look forward to what I started off many months ago of displaying, creating, and sharing works of art myself and others have to offer!

Fall is here and Winter is coming....Halloween is done and I'm searching out my Christmas goodies!

I've been working on a project for days and still working out the kinks. I'm so excited to be getting this new chapter opened up and on its way. Something I've been wanting to do since taking a break a few years back. Stay tuned because I will be doing a contest with a free give away for our winner!!!

New Year! 2012

Well I know there has been a slight delay with my post and I apologize! Between holidays and birthdays I was determined to get Christmas cleaned up and out of the way before starting out my new year! Sooo....HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL! I hope this has been a good month to you all and new goals and aspirations are on their way! I don't really make resolutions but look at what I've left undone or look at what is going to set me forward to a good year and use that to motivate me for my year. Here is one new idea I got from Pinterest...

Weight is something I have always worked on and Im down to my last handful of pounds but its been the hardest! Because I'm such a visual person and need goals I used this idea to help me stay focused! I went to the Dollar tree and purchased two glass cylinder vases and round glass pebbles. I also picked up a bag of plastic "diamond" rocks to places in there randomly for special goals I will reach and will then treat myself. I used my pebbles as 1/2 lbs. but you can do 1/4 to 1 full lb., whatever works best for you! Good Luck and Enjoy reaching your goals!

Kid's Christmas List

For most of you I'm sure tackling the "wish list" of our kids imagination has either been started or completed! BUT for those still working up ideas and need a little support here is what I gave my kids to use for their ideas and letter to Santa. Good Luck with those shopping crowds!
