January Recap

See the list?


That’s right, folks!  I almost finished all my January To-Dos!

Kitchen Window Treatments AND Trim





The Verizon rebate:  I didn’t post about this, but it was kind of a pain in the butt.  An hour on the phone and I have a $100 Visa card. :)

I sent 5 garbage bags full of Adam’s clothes to my cousins for their little boys.  We have a “hand-me-back-and-forth” system going on, since there will be 5 boys under 4 between the 3 of us this spring!

I also did a presentation at work a couple of weeks ago.  It wasn’t a huge deal, but it added a little stress to the month.

The two biggest projects were the taxes/W2s, which I finally completed Thursday…

And then, the Storybooks…I am a Creative Memories consultant and hardcover storybooks were 20% off this month, so I took advantage of the sale and finished a bunch of projects I’ve been working on.  Here are a some pages from each of the Storybooks:

Anderson Christmas book was a collection of pictures of Adam throughout 2010.  It clearly wasn’t done in time for Christmas.

Chicago Storybook (from our vacation in August.)

Bob and Mary’s Heritage Album:  This was a huge undertaking, but I am so proud of it and glad that I could do it for my husband’s grandparents.  I am so blessed to be a part of this family, and this became even more clear as I worked on the album.

And finally, Ronda and Jamie’s wedding:

Did all those pictures load?  You’re still with me?


I also made some new storage bins, even though they weren’t on the list.

I’m formulating February’s list in my head right now, and ready to get to work!

  1. You have been a very busy girl, how do you have the energy with the little one and being so pregnant?! I still need to steal your to-do list to get me moving!

  2. Congratulations - you have to feel so good!

    Love your scrapebook pages! I just finished my 2010 book on Shutterfly the other day and ordered it - I didn't know Creative Memories did anything like that - I will have to check it out!

  3. Wow, you accomplished a ton! Congrats! I need to find a place to post my to do list that will actually encourage me to do it, apparently it's really easy for me to start looking past it no matter where I put it.

  4. Wow you have been one very busy lady. Your scrap booking pages look great. If I get snowed/iced in here this week I might just get back to work on some of mine.

  5. I am impressed. I love the look of your kitchen the curtains are really pretty. I also love the storybooks, I bet they were fun to do. Lastly,I love the storage bins, I think I need a tutorial. Did you use fabric? They are adorable.

  6. Oh my word, I am in awe of your accomplishments this month... You rock! I love your book layouts and those storage bins are just perfect. Thanks for linking up to the Housewife MacGyver commitment party!

  7. You really got a lot done! I see your list for February is just as long. Very impressive:)

  8. I am stopping over and following you from Patrice's blog. I just adore Patrice.... very nice lady.

    You have some great projects... love all the pictures, what a cute little guy you have there.

    I am also a new follower. My blog is My Journey With Candida. I would love to have you stop over and visit me. Terry
