The value of this was reiterated for me over spring break when Katie started asking me about some of the journaling on another of my AAM pages. Keep at it, ladies, they'll appreciate these pages one day!

I am more indoors than outdoors – love settling in with a good book or scrapping on my laptop. I am more photography than sky diving – prefer capturing the adventure rather than jump into it myself.

And what you see is what you get. I am not very good at pretending the sun is shining when the sky is raining crap on my head. And let’s face it; life can’t always be sunshine and roses. Although sometimes I think it would be nice! But we have to have the ‘showers’ to grow and learn and appreciate who we are and what we have. If life was always ‘sunny’ we would miss out on so much. At least that’s how I look at it in hindsight. At the time I’m probably not so insightful. I have been blessed to have a lot of sunshine in my life lately and that is not something I take for granted. I love these days when life is chugging along as it should and all is happy. Right now, the love of my little family shines brightly on my heart. And when the rains next fall (and they will, that’s the way this wonderful thing called life works), I know that love will keep me dry.<br /><br />24 comments Thu, 27 Mar 2014 05:20:31 +0000 Roller Coaster <a href=";title=roller-coaster&amp;cat=1766"><img class="imgborder" title="roller_coaster.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="roller_coaster.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: grandma lynnie<br /><br />Description}: When I saw this challenge, I knew immediately what object describes me.

Could be worse I suppose :) Journaling: At dinner, after a very Eeyore-esque comment from Colin, we started a conversation as to which 100 Acre Wood Character we would each be. It was fairly unanimous - and I was identified as Rabbit, of course. I can see it, especially from the kid’s point of view. I might have picked Kanga or Christopher Robin if I had my perfect choice, but at least there will be someone around the house to get things done!

I've had to dig really deep for the journaling! I am... struggling with my gym workouts. Awaiting my medical results. Interested to see my cholesterol reading. I feel... a little like life is passing me by. That I don't have enough time to do my hobby. A little sad sometimes. I see... all my nail polishes that I can't use at the moment because my nails are too short. My ever faithful desktop PC. I love... my iPad. Sunshine. Chocolate. The Mokka. Weekends. Any time away from work. Living on the coast. I hear... the heating. The clock ticking. The news on the TV. The odd car passing by on the wet road. I'm looking forward to... celebrating Charlie's first birthday with him on 1st March. A few days off work next week. Spring &amp; Summer. I dread... not being there for my kids if they need me. Getting sick. Bad news of any sort. Bills I haven't accounted for. I'm scared of... falling when I run. Driving in snow &amp; ice. Snakes. Dogs (a little). Natural disasters and the strange way our world is changing. I'm OK when... I know the kids are happy and doing OK. Vincent's happy and doing OK. I'm feeling organised. It's the weekend and I'm at home.

I am eclectic, a spur of the moment person, a proud wife and mom, a lover of all things art and a collector of quotes I love the color green, seasons, the ideals of kermit the frog, spontinaity, diversity and stuffed animals and blankets that are hanging on by a thread because of the love of a child I feel stressed these days, and like I can get rid of this stress by simplifying my life, comforted by squeaks and creaks in my house, and blessed to have a great family and wonderful friends I see details in ordinary things, beautiful sunsets out my back door, shadows as art I hear hermes tap dancing on the kitchen table, the wind outside my window, video games downstairs, things that others around me don’t hear I’m looking forward to traveling more, not having to get up early in the mornings, and being a mother-in-law and a grandmother (one day) I dread the aches and pains of getting older, the thought of ever moving again I’m afraid of snakes and the speed involved with downhill skiing I’m good when I’ve got gary by my side, and all my kids are happy... plain and simple Supplies: Katie Pertiet: Washi Tapes Botnaicals No.1 (coming soon) [u][b][url=]Blendables Layered Template No. 23[/url][/b][/u] (moved around a bit) [u][b][url=]Striping Geo Clusters Brushes and Stamps No. 01[/url][/b][/u] Lynn Grieveson: [u][b][url=]All White Now Paper Pack[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Hint at it No. 09 Brushes[/url][/b][/u]<br /><br />21 comments Fri, 14 Feb 2014 17:52:51 +0000 My today <a href=";title=my-today&amp;cat=1766"><img class="imgborder" title="aamchallenge_feb.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="aamchallenge_feb.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: kikimama<br /><br />Description}: Such a fun challenge!

All of this is uncharted waters for us, so I have been working hard to make sure we have a place to stay and don't miss out on anything we would love to experience. I am sure it will turn into a photo book and this will more than likely be the first page!

Head over to the [b][url=]Designer Digitals blog[/b][/url] for all the details. :) Journaling: This picture captures my life perfectly at this moment. I was trying to shovel the driveway, get the dog in, and take a picture of the snow piles because they were way over my head. You can see just a corner of the mailbox over my hat and see that there’s nothing but snow over my head. But I was trying to do too many things at once and this is the picture I got. Going too fast, worrying about too many things, and something didn’t work out. It’s a great reminder that we will all adjust to me going back to work if I just stay steady, breathe, and take some time for myself. Writing it all down is always a huge help so here are my thoughts and reminders to myself. At this moment: I am...wondering how I’ll get it all done and still be the parent that I want to be. I husband so very much for always trying to help even when he can’t. I much responsibility towards ensuring that my kids feel loved and valued. I see...their stress as we all adjust to me going back to work after being home for five years. I gut telling me that we’ll all be fine as long as I stay steady and remember that they all follow my lead. I’m looking forward to...finding the balance that I know is out there. I dread...the day when they’ve left the house and I no longer have these worries. I am scared of...missing parts of their lives and letting them down. I am okay when...I remember to take deep breaths, give them all hugs, and let the other stuff go.

I am also having fun using a lot of the elements (and patterned paper ;) ) that I own but which haven't been out much! Thanks for looking!

It is tearing me up. This is the left side to my &quot;Her Size is Diminished in Me&quot; layout. Supplies: Katie Pertiet DelMar Shores Kit Lynn Grieveson Worn Page Edges No. 4 Katie Pertiet Vintage Frames No. 29 Journaling: If I had made this page four years ago, when I made my first few layouts for this book, this page would have been so much different. I have always loved my mom, but her role in my life over the past decade or so has been focused on being an amazing grandmother to my children and a very wise mom of a grown daughter. It is hard to articulate what a mother means to you, especially when you’re not the type to write poetry or tell flowery stories. She was very transparent; what you saw was what you got; there were no games, no manipulation, no appeals to emotion or guilt trips. Always avoiding confrontation, she was so easy to love and always the life of the party. Six months later, the grief that covers me comes after the simple things. Finding a great deal on a pair of shoes; using a good coupon at Macy’s; trying a new recipe that was a flop; making a huge batch of peppermint bark popcorn. I cannot articulate my love for her, but many friends have said again and again that they know how much I loved her, because of the depth of my grief at her loss. The sadness is still very new, and not at all welcome. June of 2013 brought the worst news we had ever endured as a family. In 2007 my aunt died after a short fight with cancer. It was a shock, but we had nearly a year between diagnosis and her death. My grandmother fell asleep the day after her 98th birthday, and slipped away peacefully. Again, we were sad, but she had lived a long, full, faithful life, and we could say goodbye. My mom thought she had been fighting pleurisy for a couple months. Finally, they did a CT and found the spots on her liver and the tumor on her pancreas. Metastatic pancreatic cancer, stage IV, no treatment. To say we were shocked and in disbelief would be an understatment. She was only 74! We thought we had another 25 years together. But there is no guarantee, no promise of tomorrow. Five weeks later, she closed her eyes for the last time. The day before my 40th birthday, I said goodbye to my mom, until we meet again on the other side of this life.<br /><br />15 comments Tue, 28 Jan 2014 01:00:32 +0000 AAM Books <a href=";title=aam-books&amp;cat=1766"><img class="imgborder" title="AMM_my_books.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="AMM_my_books.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: home in ottawa<br /><br />Description}: Taking a look at the books that I have read recently and discovered that I have read more ebooks than actual books in the last 6 months or so.

Lots of changes - things are finally settling down. Journaling reads What a journey these past couple of years has been. From the start of my practice I have taken baby steps. I met my first client in April 2011 in my home. The following month I used a virtual office conference room. Soon after I over to a small windowless office in the same office building. After a few months I decided a nicer office with a window would suit me better. I spent a year there. Soon though I needed to hire an assistant and moved into a large suite.
