Past Year's Projects: Part 1

photography has been a constant
So in the past 11 months I have begun to learn the ropes of raising a little girl while working 2 jobs and moving into our first house (a 2 bedroom condo). This week alone, I have been stuck at home for the better part of 6 days trying to keep my sick baby from getting dehydrated from the stomach flu. Needless to say there hasn't been much time for my projects and art. But as I started taking photos around the house this morning of things I have been working on I was surprised. I've managed to do more art than I thought. I'll start off with my favorite projects...

Baby & Home:

My most important and favorite "project"...Elizabeth ("Ellie") Adeline...this picture was taken soon after we took her home. She is now 11 months old and I can't believe time has gone by so fast.


 We bought our own place this summer. In the area we live, my hometown, I didn't think this would be possible. It's a modest 2BR condo but it is so much larger than our apartment and we are slowly settling in. Sweetpea finally has her own room and we have lots of space for storage. My dad installed dark, laminate wood floors for us and it's becoming our own.

Here's her room...

the picture was one that was in my room as a baby

before she pulls everything off the shelves:)

Our room has been the slowest to come together...put together a cheap Target bookshelf finally for our photos, etc...

...and at Marshall's I found this cute way to store and show my necklaces...kind of wish I had gotten two since I still have more hanging in the closet...


Our favorite part of the condo was the incredibly high ceilings which make it seem larger. Here's our living room - kitchen before...



...and after decorated for Christmas...

We are happy here!

In my next post I'll share my scrapbook pages from the past year. There aren't many...but a few. I got the urge to scrap last week and it had been a long time. Even before Ellie was born I just wasn't feeling like scrapping for a good year. But I think I'm back!

Happy Thursday!
