Catching Up :: Project Life

I, like most of my fellow "project lifers" am playing catch up to get 2013 finished up. 
This was my first year doing it and I can't even begin to explain how excited I am to have our entire YEAR in albums. The stories and the moments actually IN albums.
(I have totes full of past layouts in need of album space - a major future project for sure!)

My goal with my PL albums are to use product I have on hand. Which is a boat load of stuff!

It's been alot of fun pulling past favorites from Studio Calico, Sassafras, Bella Blvd, and mix them with new Elle's Studio, Crate Paper, etc.

OH! btw, I will have FIVE albums when I am finished with 2013! Wow the memories!

Here are a few of my pages... (I mix lots of 12x12 with the typical PL pages)

And here's a sneak at some of the "new" I've been working on ...

One Little Word :: 2014

 While I chose ::LESS:: for my OLW2014 I am also striving for more this coming year ...
Enjoy ::MORE:: sunrises.
 Stop & smell the flowers ::MORE:: often.
 Be ::MORE::successful with seed starting.

 Understand ::MORE:: about eggs and how to extend the laying season and freezing them.
 Explore ::MORE:: with the kids.
 Bring ::MORE:: wildflowers into our flowerbeds.
Learn ::MORE:: about bees and bee keeping.
 Learn ::MORE:: about soil. 
I guess I should have paid more attention in AG class.
But I guess I was focused more on "some boy".
Which I guess that turned out okay too. ;)
 Use ::MORE:: of the berries while they're in season and not freeze the entire harvest.
 Learn ::MORE:: about potatoes, sweet potatoes, and onions; from planting, growing, to storing.
 Learn ::MORE:: about hatching our own eggs with a broody hen.
 Enjoying the canning process ::MORE::. Time management!
Say thank you ::MORE:: to those who teach me things that will impact my life for years to come.
 Camp ::MORE::. A whole lot ::MORE::!
 Do more research on apple trees and starting my own orchard. 
In the meantime working ::MORE:: on trading gardening goods with local growers in order to get free apples, produce, etc.
 Spend ::MORE:: time in the woods as a family.
Dancing ::MORE::
 Teach our kids that the story that comes with getting something free is way ::MORE:: valuable than a trip to the store.
Take ::MORE::time to paint, get messy, and explore my creativity again.
