2 Time Saving Apps for Project Life

In the short time I started my Project Life album I found two great apps that help make editing and printing my iPhone photos much easier. 1. Pic Stitch - I’ve owned this app for a long time, I use it to create collages for Instagram. Now that I’m in to Project Life I discovered a new use for Pic Stitch! The Project Life Photo Pocket Pages include 3×4 pockets. Through browsing blogs, Instagram and Pinterest I saw that people were managing to get 3×4 photos into those pockets and I wanted to do the same. I discovered that if I do…

I’m doing it! Susan G Komen 3 Day Walk San Diego

When I found out my dear friend Alyssa, co-author of the blog Double Chin Diary, started a team for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk I knew I needed to join her on this journey. I will walk 60 miles over a three day span and raise $2300 to support research, scientific programs and community-based breast health and education programs for women and men facing breast cancer. It’s a daunting task, I’m very nervous about being able to raise the amount needed and to be able to walk so much at once. I want to take on this challenge because one in…

Blog Posts I Loved This Week April 11, 2014

This week I spent a lot of time on Pinterest so most of the blogs I visited contain very “pinable” content. Take a look! 1. Crockpot BBQ Chicken – Frugal Girls  Super, super easy BBQ chicken recipe I made this week. All you do is put the chicken in the crockpot for a couple hours then add the BBQ sauce to simmer for half an hour. Top it off with those yummy french fried onions for a bit of crunch! I served it with a big heaping side of veggies. 2.  Yoda Soda – The Baking Robot This weekend my…

Easter Candy Dish Glass Etching Craft

I love scented candles but I always feel bad about the waste jar candles create. I figured out something useful to do with my most recent used up jar candle! I pulled out my Martha Stewart Glass Etching Cream and adhesive stencils and made an Easter themed candy dish! From beginning to end this whole thing probably took me 30-40 minutes tops. That includes the time it took to clean out all the leftover wax from the bottom of the jar and getting it all squeaky clean. Here’s a Vine video I created showing the process. I like glass etching…

Project Life Feb/March Layouts

Since purchasing my Project Life supplies I dove in and filled in a few pages. I obsessed and searched the hashtag Project Life on Instagram, then searched on Pinterest and found lots of blogs with useful tips and ideas. My original intent was to keep this simple so, while the bloggers have some awesome ideas out there–I held back and did it the quick and easy way. Print photos, fill in journal cards, and place everything. I later added a few stickers here and there and used a glue stick to paste in ticket stubs and a quote card. February…
