Project Life 2015: Bad days, Good days

Quirky-Heart-Project-Life-Feb-1-inalbum

My first week of February got off to a rough start. When I realized the left side of my spread was shaping up to be Somber City I made a point of only permitting happy things on the right side.

I had a hard time running that top right card through my typewriter. The feeder did not like the thickness of it and for some reason I couldn’t get it to run straight to the end of the line even though I was well within the typing range. Hence why the journaling text is all screwed up. I might try to find another similar card (maybe this?) and start over but for now this will do.

Obviously not proud I got a ticket but I’ve always felt like I should put the bad in with the good in my PL.

This is an old Studio Calico typewriter font stamp set I’ve had for a while and never used. That’s ‘Morocco’ and ‘Grey Flannel’ Memento Luxe Ink.

And in case you’re wondering, that was a chocolate cake with strawberry-flavoured icing. It tasted like Hubba Bubba bubblegum from my childhood on a cake. Well worth the calories.

December Daily – Belated Edition

Posted on by Michelle, under Hybrid & Paper

Happy Valentine’s Day! Happy New Year! Merry Christmas!

Oy. Late, much?

I’m slowly finding my way back online after an extended hiatus that started before Christmas. Apologies to anyone who was following my December Daily posts! I should put a disclaimer somewhere on this blog that says: “Beware that Michelle is not known for her consistency or keeping up with projects.”

I’m an introvert so whenever I get overwhelmed I tend to retreat and shut down. Sharing online is hard for me on a good day but when I’m burnt out from work, drama and/or health issues (all of which I’ve been dealing with these last few months) I become allergic to my computer chair.

I realize everyone has moved on from December Daily by now but for the sake of finishing what I started, here is some of the rest of my album:
