5 Favourite Blog Posts – 2014

31st December 2014

I am joining in on Kellie’s 15 for 2015 – 5 fave blog posts, 5 fave photos and 5 fave crafted items for 2014.  I have really put a lot more time this year into blogging and have enjoyed it immensely – I am hoping to get a bit more of a schedule in place for 2015 to regularly blog and get my stories out there 🙂  I can dream right?!  So, after going through blog posts – here are my favourite five from this year –

5.  “Remember those bad days?” – We all have them – I just turned this one into a lovely keepsake haha – to remind me that no matter what, I always will have days where the milk gets spilled, my tea goes cold for the 20th time and all the other things in between.

Stories of the “Week”

10th November 2014

Another post about Week in the Life – the concept by Ali Edwards 🙂  I started putting together our week in the life, and it is a big task!  I am so glad I took so many notes, and also so many pictures.  I have found that I have really looked deeply into what I do every day, and what we do, and it is amazing how much we cram into the every day!  There never seems to be much downtime at all, until the kids are in bed at night! I have been honest in all the documenting, so if there were naughty kids, drawings on walls, baby oil in hair, it is in there.  There is no sugarcoating any of it.

 

From another perspective of documenting – I also wanted to keep a ‘right now’ focus and look at things like groceries, what we consume and how much of it, and what our ‘trends’ for food were.  It has been interesting looking at just how much food we go through, and reassuring in many ways.  They are getting enough fruit and vegetables!  Continue Reading…

Photos + Words = Stories

31st October 2014

Following on from “Anatomy of a Day“, this post will be another snapshot of our day through the Week in the Life viewpoint, a concept by Ali Edwards, where you basically dissect and document *all* that makes up your day, for seven days/a week.  I am really enjoying the process and really looking at how I get about my day in great detail – through not only to-do lists, but photos, and observations.  Many of the photos I am taking are things I normally would not photograph.  Things that are, for me, normal, every day occurrences.  From the morning cereal choices – (colour coded of course)

The Anatomy of a Day

29th October 2014

This week, I am completing the Week in the Life project by Ali Edwards.  I love the idea behind this and a big part of why I blog here is so I don’t forget the little things.  This project focuses on what we do, how we do, and a bit of why we do, every day, for seven days in a row – or a week.  I am finding it interesting to say the least and am taking a lot of photos.  I know that I already have a fairly well formed routine, but it is interesting coming at it from a different angle – telling all the stories that happen in a day, be it routine or otherwise.

A Different Kind of Blog Hop

20th October 2014

Last week, I was nominated by the beautiful Petra Cocoran to participate in “a different kind of blog hop’.  Petra is an amazing project lifer, and was on Becky Higgins’s creative team such is her talent!  So I feel very special to be nominated by her 🙂

I love blog hop’s – they always lead you to amazing places that you may never have seen before – and I can spend hours reading through all the carefully crafted words, pictures and stories.  So, here I am – and here are the questions –

1.  What am I working on right now?
