Currently List

Happy Tuesday! It's time another Currently List.


Watching: I watched a couple of Lifetime movies while I worked on some blog posts including this one. Don't judge me.

Reading: I'm almost done catching up on some blog posts. I also need to start reading one of the new books that I received.

Listening: I love this song. It's definitely going to be a Lana Del Rey kind of day.

Making: I don't eat breakfast that often (I know...I know...it's the most important meal of the day), but I did today. It was seriously the best and I may have to do this more often.

Feeling: I'm a bit tired, but overall, I am feeling good.

Planning: I really need to work on some blog posts and work on making a schedule for next month's blog posts.

Loving: I was able to get some extra sleep. I really needed it. Lately, I have been feeling exhausted again and I don't know why.

What are you currently up to?

Layouts for Paper Issues Spring Crop

Happy Wednesday! On March 17, Paper Issues held their Spring Crop on their Facebook page, Paper Issues. I decided to participate and made a few layouts. Today I want to share the layouts that I created.


I decided that I wanted to document the day that my son participated in his school's Famous Americans Wax Museum. I used Freckled Fawn's January 2017 embellishment kit. I have been trying to use all of the previous kits that I have and I thought that the January kit was perfect for this layout. I also used a Heidi Swapp date stamp and some Simple Stories alpha stickers. I used my Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to adhere the felt ribbon from the kit.


For the second layout, I documented my sons on St. Patrick's Day. I surprised them with some cupcakes. To make this layout, I used some patterned paper and some heart shaped stickers from A Beautiful Mess. I also used a ruler to make some lines and add some journaling. I also used the same date stamp on this layout.


My youngest son was so excited to take pictures on St. Patrick's Day. He kept asking me to take lots of photos and I love the way that all of them came out. How cute does he look with his little hat that he made? For this layout, I used some Heidi Swapp washi strips and put them in the middle of the layout. Then I added my photo. I added some St. Patrick's Day embellishments around the photo and washi strips. Then I added some lines with my ruler so that I could add my journaling. To finish the layout, I added some pattern paper to the corners.


I celebrated St. Patrick's Day with some cupcakes and knew that I just had to take a picture before the cupcakes were gone. For my last layout, I decided to keep it simple. I adhered some pattern paper to the center of my layout and then adhered my photo on top. I added two stickers and then used my ruler to make some journaling lines. After adding my journaling, I used the date stamp.

Supplies Used:

Listening: I've been listening to "Talking to the Moon" a lot. It's one of my favorite songs.
