Well, I'm back! Two days in a row, which is miraculous for me...lol!
I shared this monogram I bought to make a wreath out of in yesterday's post and told you I would show you how it turned out today. So, here it is! I chose to paint it a shade of aqua blue. Big surprise I know! I added a bow I made from burlap ribbon and called it done. Here it is on my door.
I also told you I would share something I got in the mail. I love happy mail! I recently installed an app on my phone called Chatbooks, It pulls photos from my Instagram accounts and when I have 60 photos that I approve of to be printed, they publish them in a little book and send it to me. They are just a few dollars and you can get your first one free with this code if you are interested....2URKUYWF.
You can title your series. See mine below....
This will print on the spine of each book along with the volume number and the dates of the first and last photo they use in the book. I started my IG account a few years ago but didn't use it much until the past few months. Now I have two IG accounts. You can find me here....@jovic4 or @vickyshappyplace
Here's the cover I chose. My kids look so much younger here!
And here you can see the size of the book. I can't wait to have a few on my shelf! I love the idea of printing these random photos from my daily life. How cool will it be to look back in the years to come. :)
I came home today to more happy mail. My Wal Mart Beauty Box came today. This one had some pretty nice products inside. If you're interested in subscribing, just google it. They are delivered quarterly and are only $5 each. I like trying new products but hate it when I buy a full size of something only to dislike the product. This gives me a chance to try products before I spend money on them. Sometimes they send full size products. My last box had a nice tube of lipstick...I just strongly disliked the color!
Moving on, I also had some stickers in the mail today! I love stickers for my planners and my Project Life album. These are so pretty....they are by Simple Stories, the I AM collection. I put them under the lamp so you could see the gold foil.
Speaking on planners and Project Life, here are my weekly layouts in my Kate Spade desk planner and my Color Crush personal planner. I decided to go with a fall theme in the Kate Spade, even though it doesn't feel much like fall here in Florida. We have had a few glimpses of fall recently though and that gives me home that it is on the way!
I just love this week in my personal size. Isn't that book washi tape the cutest ever? My friend, Heather was kind enough to share. I wrote book quotes on each date. I still need to finish filling in all my to do's for the week.
I also wanted to share the Project Life pages I worked on over the weekend. I want to document Sadie's life so I had several pictures printed from the time she was a puppy. Oh, how I miss that sweet baby face!
Sorry about the glare in some of these.
Cute or what?
Well folks....that's a wrap! I seriously need to get to work grading some tests and finishing some paperwork for school. I will be at school tomorrow but have meetings throughout the day so I had to leave plans for a sub. I detest writing sub plans! I hope your Monday was marvelous and your Tuesday is too!
Until next time.....
