This week's links ...

1. I am currently ... and I mean right now ... making yoghurt in my slow cooker. Will let you know how it turns out.

2. Holidays are coming up and daylight savings will be finishing ... it might be time for something that glows in the dark.

3. Doghouse Diaries Baby Names. So true, Hubby ruled out a lot of the best boys names using this criteria.

Project Life: Week 9

The Mom Creative


A bit late with my pages this week, but I babysat last night so I took my computer and had a bit of time to finish it off.

I'm not going to share the facing page here, it is about Hubby's grandma's 100th birthday party. Yes you read that right ... 100 years. The local federal member of parliament came along and she opened her letters from the queen, the governor general, prime minister and premier as well as the local member of the state parliament. It definitely was a special milestone.

I only have one page to share this week ... there is a second one to match ... but not for sharing.

I plan on adding a special double layout later with photos from our first swim in the pool as well. We got the pool finished just in time to enjoy on one of our hottest weekends of the summer which was awesome timing ... nothing like jumping into a pool at the end of a 37C day.  We still need to tile and build a deck around it but it's swimable.

Project Life: Week 7

The Mom Creative


On a Thursday, I know, but we lost internet service for a while. This week I have four pages and you can see that I've changed the template for most of them.
