Upsy Daisy January share....

January is always the time where we reevaluate ourselves and rethink how we go about our daily lives. This is the time when resolutions of all sorts are made and homes are reorganized. So with that, I present to you some of my latest projects featuring some wonderful Upsy Daisy designs products....

Documenting in 2010 layout

this one encompasses one of my goals this year- to go back to journaling writing. With blogging and a hectic life I've neglected my favorite "me" time.

Journaling:

One of the things that I missed the most in 2009 is handwriting in my journal. With my life turning into one crazy ball of schedules and activities, I’ve sheepishly turned into my blog for documenting our everyday happenings. This sufficed me because typing is way faster than writing with my trusty little pen, but I miss seriously missed my journals. I miss the unabridged truth that comes out when I know that I’m the only one reading what I’ve written. I miss the unedited perspective that comes out of me. I missed the smell of paper and the chicken scratch of a writing that I make in it. I miss the quiet time I have with my “nth” volume of journal. I miss it all, that’s why in this next year, I will try my very best to go back to the habit of journaling writing. I know it’s going to be tough challenge but I’m going to try. After all documenting is what I do and I don’t see any better way of accomplishing that than journal writing.



Here I used the Enchanted paper line. I love the monochromatic look of the page with a hint of boldness that the dark purple provides. I also used some rubons and a border stamp fromUpsy Daisy.

Card Organizer

Have you ever experienced a time where you forgot so and so's birthday and you scramble to find that cute card you recently made but totally spazed out on where you last put it down? Well worry no more.....here's a card organizer for you.


I started with a used chocolate box that I received at Christmas time and turned it into a place to house my newly made cards. It's both an earth friendly and cute project, don't you think?!


I used some fun Cupcake papers in this project along with frame stamp from the My Guy collection and some oodles of doodles letter rubons.

So there you have it. Hope this will inspire you to get those resolutions and organizational tasks done. Just like my mom says....." in everything you do, put at art in it." These projects definitely fit that bill! *wink*

Oh and if you have just now stop by, I'm having a give away this week in my blog. Check this post. You have until Thursday (tomorrow) to leave a comment and I'm picking two winners on Friday.

Have a great day.

Till next time,
Grace
