For Today: January 17, 2011

I love this simple documentation idea from The Simple Woman's Daybook via Ali Edwards' blog:

January 17, 2011

Outside my workshop window...the sun is shining! Brian just called and said it's overcast in the valley, which reminds me of a license plate frame I saw the other day: "Colfax--above the fog, below the snow."

I am thinking...about how I want to display my photos + text in a San Diego layout I'm working on. The year of the trip: 2000!

I am thankful for...all of the ephemera (ticket stubs, maps, parking passes, journaling) that I collected during our 2000 trip to San Diego. Sure makes putting together a layout--nearly 11 years later--infinitely easier.

I am inspired by...this layout by Stephanie Howell. It's so visually stunning. Stephanie has a gift for pulling together product + photos + stories into impressive scrapbook layouts.

I am favorite Gap jeans! I love, love, love denim.

I am intro page for AE's Yesterday and Today class.

We are see my parents, sister and niece next weekend. :-)

I am new necklace from Etsy's Polka Dot Boutique. The word "faith" is stamped on my necklace.

I am reading...Scott Kelby's Digital Photography book, Volume 1. I can't wait to also read Volumes 2 + 3.

I am hoping...that we will be able to order the travertine tile for our bathroom this week.

I am hearing...Hello World by Lady Antebellum. My favorite line from the song: "Maybe talk to God like he is there, oh I know he's there, yeah, I know he's there..."

Around the house...I'm enjoying "playing" in my workshop on this no school/no work day. Happy birthday to Martin Luther King, Jr.!

One of my favorite writing in my teacher journal on Monday afternoons. (Many thanks to the Karreman family!)

A few plans for the rest of the week...sub days on Wednesday and Friday (reading training and academic conferencing), running, scrapbooking, and spending time with Brian.

A picture to share...

The "Laundry Today or Naked Tomorrow" sign was a Christmas gift from my Aunt Sherrity. Every time I do a load of laundry, I see it and smile.

Hope you have a great week!
