PROJECT LIFE

Lachie's cricket album is coming along but now I've switched to his footy album in an attempt to keep up this year.  I really must get onto Dan's albums too, oh and lets not forget Sophie's dance album, sigh.........  At least I'm keeping up with my weekly PL, that's a plus.

Lachie - Football.


Sophie - Dance

CHIA PUDDING

I'm all for chia seeds, in fact I stir those little seeds into smoothies, casseroles and anywhere else I can think of.  One thing I'd been meaning to try is chia puddings (pudding probably isn't the best word as I eat them for breakfast) so I bought one of those little chia pots from the supermarket after checking for additives and added sugars and promptly decided that I would be making my own from now on.  The chia pots were okay (just okay) and at $3.75 a pop there was no way I was buying any more.


CHIA PUDDING IN A JAR (makes 2 jars)
1 cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons chia
1/2 tablespoon rice malt syrup
vanilla extract to taste

Divide all ingredients into two small mason jars, lid on and shake.
Place in fridge overnight for chia seeds to swell.
Enjoy.

Believe me these little jars will fill you right up until lunch and they are delicious!  You can add fruit on top if you like but at the moment I am off fructose for a few weeks so I eat mine as is.

PHOTO DUMP.....


One day I will make up my mind and stick to a plan, but for now I've gone back to doing Project Life weekly as I've found I just wasn't doing any scrapbooking at all and the structure seems to suit me a lot better.  So over the last week I've been quietly catching up, thank goodness I decided to do this now and not in July or something crazy like that.

week 4

week 5

week 6

PROJECT LIFE AND 30 DAYS OF LISTS

While I may not be doing PL weekly, I have been keeping up with photos and journaling and have been doing bits and pieces when time allows.


...and a couple of finished pockets of pages I'm working on.


30 Days of Lists....
This project has held my interest for a couple of years, so far I've trawled pinterest and flickr for the prompts and written them down all ready to journal and that is as far as I've got.
This time round I actually paid for the list and it's made all the difference with community support and ideas.
Here is what I've done so far......

The journal I'm using is from Big W that I've had sitting waiting for the right project.

My title page.....

Day 1:  Ways to add magic to my life.....

Day 2:  How would I describe myself to a penpal.....

Day 3:  My ideal day....

HAPPENINGS.......

Sorry for the lack of posts but I've had some pretty bad laptop issues that hopefully are now sorted. here's a little update on what's been happening with the kids. Dan turned 17!!!!!!!

Sophie went on a beach trail ride with a friend.  She loves horses and would dearly love to have her own but for now we will stick to borrowing someone else's horse.

Lachie has just been Lachie.  Cricket, friends and jumping off cliffs.

There's so much more as these guys never seem to stop and I am forever the taxi driver but I wouldn't have it any other way.
