Project Life Tuesday: 2016 Title Page

I'm going to be honest. White I have all the pictures printed for 2014, I'm not done with book two. 2015? Still on March. But I'm still plugging away...I have a good rotation and I'm getting those photos out of my computer and all our stories told. I'm slow, but I love it.

So far this year I've managed to stay on top of things. I clear our phones and cameras every Sunday. I check Facebook and Emails for important updates and add them to my super duper PL planner and I get to work. 

Here is my 2016 Title Page

Pretty simple and I enjoyed digging through my stash for the perfect cards. I think I have a mix of Elle's Studio, Freckled Fawn and Studio Calico. I know the W is an ancient find from Michaels.

My game plan for staying on top Project Life this year is to keep it SIMPLE. 
  • I don't need to use EVERY picture I take. 
  • I don't need to use ALL the things on every page. (Those can be saved for traditional layouts)
  • I'm going to try and stick to Design A. In past years I've mixed it up and while I LOVE the look and I find it fun to work with the different layouts, sticking to this ONE should simplify things.
I know January tends to be my lazy month and then everything picks up and gets crazy, but hopefully I can keep on top of things. Would love to hear how other Project Life Scrappers stay current.

Reading List for 2016

I thought I would share my reading list for 2016. My list of planned reads are literally overflowing and falling off my nightstand. It's a little ridiculous, but there is something about a surplus of books that makes me insanely happy.

In no particular order:
Not pictured but still on my list:
Anything I should add? What's on your list for the year?

Checking In With Plans for 2016

Not much has been going on here. We've been living and loving and figuring out routines.

 As is normal for the beginning of January I've been thinking a lot about my goals and plans for the year. 
 I plan to walk, run and be active. I plan to be healthier and stronger.  I plan to love myself more, because my guys deserve a happier Mama and wife.
 I plan to craft more. More sewing, more crocheting, more scrapbooking; but spend less and use what I have.
I plan on blogging more. Sometimes it might just be interesting to me, sometimes not. We'll just see where it goes.
I plan on purging what we don't need, so we can really enjoy what we have. 

So lots of more with a little less mixed in. I hope everyone is having and continues to have a wonderful 2016.
