Saving a Favourite Quote

There are times when the most fantastic quote pops up in my Facebook feeds & I share it but I never go back & do anything with it. I have decided if there is one that I really love I should really scrapbook it or make it into a wall hanging or something, just so I do have it saved.

Last week a quote floated by that was so SO applicable to my son James that I just had to use it.  This is what was on my facebook feed.
I wondered about just framing that whole picture to put on James' wall but then James isn't a little girl so in that respect the picture didn't work.  Also I have heaps of photos of James with his grin & if this was to be about James I should really put James' smiles with the quote. 

I sorted through my photos & found lots of him over the years smiling.  Unfortunately there are no photos of him doing his sports that he loves with his smile, although I know I have seen him smiling away while doing length after length of backstroke.  I've seen him smiling as he is running a 1500m or a cross country race but there are no actual photos of that, much to my surprise!  James is nearly always smiling & it really is the cutest smile that just melts my heart & I have a feeling he knows that very well LOL.  

After finding my photos it was a quick matter of getting the right template in MDS & making up this landscape layout.  I don't usually use a landscape setting for my scrapbooking but early on the process I had worked out that I wanted this to hang on James' bedroom wall as a reminder to never loose his infectious smile.

Here it is hanging on the wall.

Household Organisation

I have spent the last couple of weeks trying to get caught up on laundry & household cleaning.  I really need to declutter this house.  I want to make my dining room a dining room, not a craft room that becomes a dining room when everything gets quickly junked somewhere else for visitors.  Scott keepos commenting that he loves it when we sit at the dining table together because normally dinner is on our laps at whatever time we have all come home from our extra curricular activities.  He's right, it's lovely to sit in the dining room together, to talk over dinner but as a consequence my crafting stuff gets put away all over the house.  The boys used to have a play room, well I've decided that because they are now older that will become my playroom!  Of course we have to declutter that room & store away all the LEGO, trains etc meanwhile the housework still has to happen.  If I take just a few days off housework to go away the house turns to a wreck so I have made a couple of task lists today to help everyone in the house know when stuff needs to be in the laundry to get washed, when shirts get ironed & more importantly where I expect a bit of a hand each day to help me.

I created these frameables (I think that is what Stampin' Up! call them) in MDS today.

These now have pride of place in my laundry so everyone knows what's happening & can step in & do it should I go away somewhere.

To see more detailed information on what was used to create this frameable go to my digiscraps blog
