The idea behind the class is to tell our story, so most of these layouts focus on me. I flipped through my storage binders looking for photos to go along with my ideas for the prompts and then pulled a few photos from my category drawers and cold storage. I had fun combining brand new products, old products from my stash (one item has been in my stash since before I married Robbie 10 1/2 years ago), and even some upcycled items.
I am a Bible Study teacher/leader/facilitator. Mostly I lead studies written by others, but I often add a little of my own creativity or share what the Lord has taught me. Photos 2004, 2011, 2012. Documented by Melissa - June 2012.
I love to organize. I like to joke that I was born organized, but truly I don't know how to be any other way. I love having "a place for everything and everything in its place," but I'm most happy when I'm in the midst of an organizing project - creating that perfect place for everything!!
I believe in Santa Claus and celebrating and enjoying Christmas in all its splendor as long as we remember the true reason for the season. The definition of Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, and I believe our Savior enjoys seeing us remember His birth with gifts and celebrations and food and family. That's why to me, it'll always be about saying to everyone Merry Christmas! The joy of Christmas comes from Christ who was born the first Christmas morn.
I remember that the morning of this photo, I was not planning to attend the Chemax company Christmas dinner.
I remember that while I was doing my office manager job that day, I changed my mind.
I remember borrowing Sandra's prom dress.
I remember leaving work early for a last minute appointment for Kimmy to style my hair.
I remember Kimmy snapping this photo in the lobby of the hair salon.
I remember everyone being "wowed" when I walked into the country club for dinner.
I remember I loved big hair throughout the late 80s and early 90s.
I remember feeling beautiful.
I see the Texas state flower. The drought was so severe in 2011 that we didn't see hardly any bluebonnets, but this year we had a very mild winter, early rains, and lots of sunshine, so they bloomed early and were plentiful throughout the state. 3-12
Were you able to spot the new supplies? the really old stash? the upcycled items?
