Project 52 - Week 3

This is Week 3 of Project 52.  It has been an extraordinarily cold week, with 28F weather, even colder than the East Coast.  It's a nice week for fire in the backyard, and some marshmellow roasting.

With hubby away for a personal trip, the kids insisted upon 'camping out' in the living room.  Why not?  It's the weekend.. and it's warmer when we all sleep in one big room!  :)

Project 52 - Week 2

This week, I've written about some warm weather food I've cooked for the family.  There are some really good childhood memories attached to these recipes since mom made quite a few of them in the winter when I was young.

I've also written about my journey to take care of my leg/back pain since my pain doctor has decided to stop treating me with the trigger point injections.  I am going to think about what my plans are in order to get rid of the pain... so here it is:

Project 52 - Week 1

The last half of 2012 has been tough due to some health issues.  I have not abandoned scrapping or card-making... but I just didn't have the energy to.  Even when I did have the energy, I was not in the mood to craft.

I'm hoping that with some changes, I can get my health back in 2013.  And to find my lost mojo, I've joined a Project 52 Weekly Scrap Challenge.  I'm hoping this challenge will hold me accountable to do at least one mini layout each week... and a way to start a journal for this new year.  I think this will be a somewhat exciting year with lots of changes.

To start off, I am going to use my Fuji Instax Mini 7S Camera to help me out.  I also discovered some apps that will help me print out my iPhone pictures at my local stores.  These will be very helpful as I will be needing a photo or two each week.

This week is a recap of what we did over the Christmas holidays.  It's been a very nice staycation and though I rested a lot, we still managed to do a few of our favourite family activities.  The nicest thing this season was the music that filled our house.  All it took was an informal recital to inspire a little kid to play Christmas music on the piano all day long.  It then inspired his sister to play as well.  It was a delight for sure!

Here's week 1:
