hello monday|eight

hello citizenship of the month winner Naomi!
hello another month down.  Just a few days left of February.  This month was so busy that it went by super fast - the fact that it's the shortest month helps too!

hello erin! My dear friend Erin and her family is here for a quick visit. They are on the way to Redding, California to start a new chapter of their life. They are more than friends; they are family.

hello scrapbook retreat.  It's been so long since I last scrapped. The intention and desire was there - but it never got done.  Will work on my boy's album. Hoping this will get me back in the mood. =)  Looking forward to spending time with my good friend Desiree - we are both looking forward to a "get away".

hello swim meet. Hannah's first swim meet is this week.  Excited to see how she's grown in this area since last year!

hello beautiful weather. The weather is supposed to range from 70 degrees to 82 degrees this week.  So perfect!  Last week was quite cold and wet for our standards.

hello  Monday Mugshots.  The mug in this picture was given to me by Erin when we were in college. I still have it after all these years and love the memory of it!  French vanilla creamer with Folgers Black Silk brewed coffee.  
I've been working on my pages for my A Year in the Life of an Art Journal  prompt. A little here, a little there... As you know, I've had lots of company (which I love) so I haven't made much time to sit down and really get at it, but after everyone's in bed I'd sneak a little gesso onto the pages, then a cut out from a magazine... some vintage book pages...  Almost done. Lots of happiness creating this page.

So there you go. hello monday and new beginnings.

Inspired by my friend, Lee at Embrace Life, Hello Monday provides a peek into the coming week - in all its glory. Join us and Lisa for the Hello Monday fun.

The most effective way to do it, is to do it.

  1. I guess Amelia Earhart was the first one to say "Just do it" and was ripped off by Nike!
    I'm sure Hannah will do wonderfully at her swim meet! And enjoy that warm weather for me...

  2. i really needed to stay for 2 full weeks. :sigh:
