Hello Again! Do You Remeber Me?

Oh dear!  I cannot believe that I've been gone for so long, sweet friends! But I have a really good excuse... this little guy! 
Yes, I'm mama to 4 little men now!  And they keep me quite busy.  This little one's name is Finn.  He is 5 months old now and he is delightful and so very sweet!  

With this new little guy arriving,  I am reminded more than ever that I want to start recording our memories and keeping our photos with them , but scrapbooking can be so time consuming.  I love the type of artistic journals that the fabulous Corey Moortgat has created for her babies, but I know I'm probably not going to be able to fit that kind of time in anytime soon.  So I've decided to try Project Life, but my way.  I'm not going to try to record every single day or week like some people do, but I just want to use that simple and easy style of slipping journal cards and photos into sleeves so I have a chance of actually getting it done. 

 I'm trying to gather ideas on how to make it my own.  There is a lot of good inspiration on Pinterest, maybe too much. I love Pinterest, but it can also be overwhelming. I have been gathering the supplies I need and hopefully I can find a space to create in  this little house. Maybe I can squeeze in a spot somewhere between all the computers and toys. If only this baby would take longer naps. It's hard to nap when you have 3 loud older brothers!

Have any of you tried Project Life or something similar?  I would love to hear about your experiences and see your work.

Michelle xoxo

It's great to see a new post from you Michelle. And it was wonderful seeing your reason for not having posted for so long. Your little Finn is totally adorable. I wish you luck with your Project Life goal. I think its a great idea for a busy mom like you. I love the concept myself but I am not a picture taker or scrapbooker myself, so it's not likely something I will ever try myself. I can just admire everyone else's Project Life creativity from afar.

Take care...

Michelle, that's so funny! When you made a mention in your email about four boys to take care of, I assumed you meant your three boys and your husband, since I knew you didn't have four! Guess I was wrong!! Congratulations, and I can't wait to hear what you think about Project Life! said...

Congradulations. Finn is adorable!

True life changing story of COPD.
My father was a smoker for forty years. He started when he was a teenager in high school in the early 1950s, and continued to smoke about a pack a day until he quit in 1995. For years he thought "You know? 1 smoked for forty years, and I got away with it !" No. No he didn't. In 2014, nineteen years after he had quit smoking, he started noticing that he was having trouble with wheezing and feeling like he was out of breath a lot. He was diagnosed with early stage COPD. For the first year, he was able to get by with simply using rescue inhalers once in a while, but by late 2015 he needed supplemental oxygen. At first, he could get by on the lowest tank setting of 1 liter per minute, but as time went on he needed an Oxygen concentrator at home and he needed more and more oxygen. Last year (2020) he was up to the oxygen concentrator's highest setting of 5 liters per minute, even while just sitting down. By this time I had moved in with him to take care of him. Sometimes he would be gasping for air, and he would ask me "Son, is the machine on? I just can't get enough air" his condition worsened, our hearts melted every moment as we watched him gasp for breath,we were sure he would die any moment, by the time I started reading YouTube comments,I stumbled upon a comment that said there is an traditional herbal doctor called Dr Itua Herbal Center man that cures this ailment and other human diseases,I quickly contacted him and ordered the herbs with my father's money because he wouldn't need it anymore cos he would die any moment,I received the herbs in two days and from that moment he used the herbs, he began to feel better and better, few weeks later, he was completely cured, I thank you for reading this story about my father's experience with COPD. If you know someone who is a smoker, and you love them, please encourage them to quit. We love Daddy.all thanks to Dr Itua.
if you have this ailment or have other ailments like..Alzheimer's,Cancer,Parkinson,Hiv,Herpes,Hpv,Kidney disease,Diabetes,Hepatitis,, email Dr Itua Herbal Center on also chatted with him on whatsapp number: +2348149277967. and he will send you herbs to cure you completely.
