How many of you have heard of Project Life? How many of you are interested to find out more about this fabulous system? How many of you want to get back to the basics? Get back to the reason you started scrap booking in the first place... recording stories and memories?

Don't get me wrong... I still love to get paint and ink under my nails on occasion... and I still love all the pretty bits and pieces... but that's the thing with Project Life... it can be as creative or as simple as you want it to be.

So getting to the REAL reason of this blog post...  I am so excited to announce that the amazing girls at

Tomorrow's Memories will be stocking 

I seriously could just pee! OK, that's just TMI I know... but yeah, to say I am pretty happy about that is the understatement of the year! ;)

Now, here's MY big news... You all know my little boys, Austin and Albert... Can you believe they are going off to Kindergarten this year? I know right? Unbelievable! LOL :)  I am sure I will be a big, sooky lala on the day...  and in lots of ways I have to be honest and say I don't think any of us are ready for it... but I am so excited for them at the same time and more importantly THEY are excited so that's all that matters at this point.  All the other stuff...  we will cross those bridges as we come to them.

Anyway, so this raises the question of what to do with my time while they are at Kindy five days a fortnight?

Mmmmmmmmmmmm... what could I possibly DO with all that extra time?
Some might suggest I fold and put away those clothes you see in the background on the dining room table...
Pffffffffffffttttt. ;)

Well, I am also SUPER excited to let you in on a little secret...

I am going to be working with the amazing girls at Tomorrow's Memories in Bassendean to organise some introductory workshops in the very near future...

These workshops will show how the system can work for you... there are limitless possibilities and ideas.

I am going to say that I will be "leading" these sessions rather than "teaching" them because seriously this system is so simple you don't need to be "taught" how to use it but I would love to show you what is available...  impart my experience in using the products (2013 is my fourth year and I am loving it more every day!) and share some inspiration with you.  I'd also like to show you some ways to incorporate a little creativity into your albums and show you how, using only a few extra supplies, you can make your album as individual as you and your family are... or just stick to the absolute basics and create a gorgeous album to enjoy for years to come.

I'd love EVERYONE to come along for a look... ESPECIALLY non-scrappers... those of you who aren't into the whole "scrapbooking scene" but who would love to organise your photos and get them into albums to enjoy in the old fashion way rather than having them hidden away on CDs and HDDs where no one ever gets to see them!

I'd also like to welcome beginners, newbies, seasoned scrappers, old hands that are looking for something new to try... it really is a breath of fresh air to the scrapping world in my opinion and I am glad it is finally going to be available locally!

I am REALLY hoping there will be enough interest to turn this into a regular get together.

I'd love to hear some feedback as to when would be a good day and time to suit as many local (and anyone who wants to come visit of course!) people as possible. Please leave me a comment here if you are interested. <3 br=""> Project Life really can be whatever you want or need it to be.  It doesn't just have to be about a photo a day...

Do you have dozens of old, pre-digital (maybe less than "perfect") prints that you want to do something with but just can't find the time?  Do you want to finally get a baby album sorted and finished for your child?  Do you want to start a childhood album for your school kids?  I have ideas for brag books and travel albums and memorial books and... the list goes on and on and on and on ... It's even better than a Demtel ad! ;) Project Life can do all this and more!

Please keep an eye out here... we will be sorting dates and times in the next few weeks.

We will keep you informed as to when these workshops are going to go ahead and when the product is going to be available to buy in store.  Excited much? Ah YEAH, just a tad. ;)

{More} Project Life...

At the risk of sounding like a crazy woman... I just have to share this with you... 

Yesterday I answered a question... 

Why (do) YOU love Project Life so much? What does it mean to YOU? 

I answered...

I started PL because I had done 365project (a photo a day) and was looking for a way to store those photos... Little did I know how much a part of my life PL would become... in my second year (2011) my twin boys became ill and it became the perfect way to document their journey... not just for the memories and emotional side of things but for the real and practical purpose of having an up to date record of what/who/when/how... Going into 2012 it became even more important to have those facts and numbers at my finger tips (I have the doctors and nurses convinced I have a photographic memory... Well, I kind of do in my PL album!) And here we are 2013... It just keeps getting better. ;)

I can't convey in just words how much Project Life means to me... I have those records of what might sound a negative part of our lives but I have also preserved so many beautiful photos of all my kids, (long suffering) husband AND MYSELF!!!!

I have made sure I have taken photos of family that I would never have bothered with... recorded little memories that would have faded away unnoticed... the list goes on and on.

I'm into the whole "keep it real" principal... balance in everything... the good, the bad, the beautiful, the completely @#$%ed up!, the heart breaking, the downright hideous and all the amazing blessings we enjoy!

I can't wait to show you how REAL it gets in my albums! ;)

I have something really cool and exciting to share... really soon... promise. ;)
