Happy thoughts

When I woke up this morning, it was a rainy, dreary day. Now, the sun is out.
Since the first day of March was less than thrilling for me, I've tried to come up things that make me happy in order to overshadow the bad.

-Sydney only got up ONCE last night & I got to sleep until 7-ish.
-I have ALL our CD's & DVD's packed - FIVE boxes worth.

-The yummy shrimp & spinach pasta Corey brought home last night
-The new knitting project I've started
-The weekend is here. :)

In like a lion...

Happy March...
I can't believe it's March 1st. Time is flying by.

22 days until the new house. So much packing to do.

Sydney's over 8 lbs now and smiling!

So, to ring in Spring, I joined Jaime's newest venture: a Celebration Journal.

As this progresses, I will be posting my work here on my blog. I'm hoping this will help me relax and inspire me as well as provide a much needed creative outlet that I can do during this hectic time.

To start things off, here is the cover of my journal as well as the first two pages:
The cover is very simple - MAMBI patterned paper that reminds me of spring. It's one of my favorite patterned papers. I just love the colors. Wordsworth letter stickers and a silk flower. I have it bound together with twine at the moment. Until I can get to Staples to get binder rings, it will remain that way.
For the second page, I just washed it with ink and decided to write down the definitions to the three words that form the heart of this journal: inspiration, celebration & life.
Page three is actually the 'first' page of the journal. It explains my reason for keeping this journal. I simply tabbed the beginning of March with some cardstock and stamped on a flower border.
Finally, I found these great Ziploc storage bags hiding under my sink and I thought it would be perfect to hold my wee album & the bits of inspiration I may come across.
