    Oh wow! You all have been busy! Such a great mix of themes and ideas this week.

    Thank you! I let myself get overwhelmed with stickers in October, and this month and for next I’m keeping it really simple. I did the backgrounds in Procreate, and added everything else in Goodnotes.

    I honestly haven't tried it. I'm such a PSE/PC person that I'm still finding Procreate very awkward.

    Project Life, Week 45, 2018

    A little throwback to Halloween last week. Our son sent us these photos of Preston all dressed up as a very scary Ninja! Also, I’m not exactly sure how it came about but he had his first ice skating lesson, too. Dad was terrified, the four year old? Not so much! The weather turned very frightening while we were waiting for election results to come in. A huge line of storms swept our area, and way down into Alabama and up to Kentucky. We were under a tornado warning until almost 1:00 in the morning. The election results for our state weren’t at all what we were hoping for, but a friend’s son is the newly elected mayor of the town just north of us. The large number of women that were elected -of all faiths and colors- is so encouraging! A bit of a blue wave after all. The smaller headline shares that there was one death due to the tornadoes. A mother of four, about 30 miles south of us. Our little trees are barely hanging on. We’re expecting a cold snap next week and then I think the leaves will all be gone until Spring. On Saturday I had to buy new fuzzy boots (because Ivy ate my old pair) and we planned a nice lunch at TGI Friday’s in Murfreesboro. They were closed and being remodeled into a Miller’s Ale House. We came back home and tried out the little hole in the wall place by our grocery store. SO GOOD! I had a real hamburger, and Dave finally found a place to get good Eggs Benedict! We will certainly go back again. supplies: EMA_Transitions_EMB_Biggie_Confetti, EMA_Transitions_EMB_Biggie_Flower2, EMA_Transitions_EMB_Biggie_Foliage8, GBE_Blueberry_pop_solid_01, LLO_ArtAut_Emb_Swirl1, LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus_Emb_Leaf2, MPE_Calendar, MPE_SIM3, SBA_SSStyles_PhotoBorders_6501_White-Sm, SNU_SSStyles_ShadowMe6301_Lace-Wire, tmd_sweaterweather_paper3, tmd_sweaterweather_paper6, tmd_sweaterweather_paper8, Font: Arial, CVW_SupplyTracker

    journaling: Happy Birthday Mom! On Halloween Dave’s mom turned 85, and her sister Viginia turned 82. Yep, they were born 3 years and 5 minutes apart! Mom got beautiful roses from her daughter Sharon, in Miami, and our friend Wanda (from church) brought her these beautiful silk sunflowers. Virginia came up from Florida so that they could celebrate together. I baked a cheesecake for them, and we had a lovely visit. Mom wasn’t able to get out, but Virginia, her husband Manly, and Dave and I had a super lunch at O’Charleys. Lola the Llama was a gift from Virginia. Soft and cuddly! That’s one of our trees, ready for fall! Halloween is a big deal in our neighborhood. There are tons of kids that Trick or Treat, and the houses are decorated to the hilt! Ivy was ready, she wore my flashy headband for a while. She was so good with all the kids that came by, we were so surprised. She didn’t bark, or try to run out the door (like Dusty used to do), she was just genuinely curious to see the kids. We held on to her and let her help answer the door, and she was a big hit. On Thursday she had her first visit to the spa. We took her in at 8:30 am and they bathed her, and de-tangled her, and trimmed her nails. She came home looking so pretty and fluffy! Saturday night we went to Memories Bar and Grill to hear our friends’ group, Phoenix Rising. A bunch of church folk were there, and we celebrated Dave’s birthday a few days early. This is me with Staci and Laini. Good times! supplies: BMU_BeautifulBlack_Paper_Book, BMU_JunkyardMarquee_Halloween_Boo_c_Boo, DRB_Birthday-Party_Celebrate, DRB_Birthday-Party_Cupcake, GBE_Blueberry_pop_solid_01, LLO_ArtAut_Emb_Swirl1, LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus_Emb_Leaf2, LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus_LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus, LLO_ArtAut_PprMini_Paper_GoldCanvas, MPE_Calendar, MPE_SIM3_Calendar, MPE_ScrapIt_Monthly_DateMarkers_Brushes, SBA_SSStyles_PhotoBorders_6501_White-Sm, SNU_SSStyles_ShadowMe6301_Lace-Wire, Font: Arial, CVW_SupplyTracker

    Also, they added a "crop" function, although I haven't tried it yet.

    journaling: Ivy likes to hang out on the upstairs landing so she can see what’s going on downstairs. I added a Halloween garland to the mailbox, I love it! Pumpkins are in great supply all over town; these were outside Home Depot. The trees are just stunning this year! We haven’t had a freeze yet, so the colors are taking their time changing. This tree is in front of mom’s nursing home. The carpet of leaves underneath is beautiful. Vicky is the Activity Director at the Home, and she was getting set up for their Halloween party. There is always something for the residents to do if they choose to. I had to pull over to get a picture of the “Pac Man” pumpkin and the little ghosts. So cute! Dave and I took advantage of early voting. It only took us about ten minutes to get in and out! There are some tough races in TN this year, it’s hard to predict the outcome. We finally got a screen for our fireplace! Ivy has been eating the lava rocks, and no one had them in stock yet. It was inexpensive, and she hasn’t bothered the rocks since we put it up! supplies: BMU_BeautifulBlack_Paper_Book, GBE_Blueberry_pop_solid_01, LLO_ArtAut_Emb_Swirl1, LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus_Emb_Leaf2, LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus_LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus, LLO_ArtAut_PprMini_Paper_GoldCanvas, MPE_Calendar, MPE_SIM3_Calendar, MPE_ScrapIt_Monthly_DateMarkers_Brushes, SBA_SSStyles_PhotoBorders_6501_White-Sm, SNU_SSStyles_ShadowMe6301_Lace-Wire, Font: Arial, CVW_SupplyTracker

    Project Life, Week, 42, 2018

    journaling: After our visit with Suzanne and Pat, we came back home for the Methodist Men’s Annual Fish Fry. Catfish is my favorite, ever since I used to go fishing with my daddy as a little girl. We also had a dessert auction to benefit a family whose father/husband recently passed away. On Tuesday I baked 25 potatoes for our women’s meeting. Margie brought all of the toppings, and it was a huge success! I’ve had my Fall wreath up for a couple of weeks, but when I found these googly eyes at Dollar Tree I had to have them! The entire neighborhood has begun decorating for Halloween. I swiped an idea from one of them and hung a flower from our mailbox. Ivy seems pretty taken with my inflatable Minion, but then she also loved the box of tissues that used to be by Dave’s chair in the living room. Now it’s all over the back yard. supplies: BMU_BeautifulBlack_Paper_Book, DRB_Halloween-Fun_Ghost-01-without-Shadow, DRB_Halloween-Fun_WA-Strip_BONE, GBE_Blueberry_pop_solid_01, LLO_ArtAut_Emb_Swirl1, LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus_Emb_Leaf2, LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus_LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus, LLO_ArtAut_PprMini_Paper_GoldCanvas, MPE_Calendar, MPE_SIM3_Calendar, MPE_ScrapIt_Monthly_DateMarkers_Brushes, SBA_SSStyles_PhotoBorders_6501_White-Sm, SNU_SSStyles_ShadowMe6301_Lace-Wire, Font: Arial, CVW_SupplyTracker

    Procreate was just updated! My favorite thing so far? They added a clipping mask function! I'm loving learning how to use a mask to make backgrounds for my pages. I've set aside some SG papers to use for my December pages, and did the same for November. I'm using the Boho Berry original planner, and purchased the same one for 2019 (undated this time, because I always change the layouts anyway!)

    journaling: Sunday morning was World Communion Sunday, so I decorated the altar with a variety of breads and wheat. Lots of people said it made a lovely image. Mom got her hair done, and even though she doesn’t like it “puffy” like this, I think it makes all the difference in how she feels. She gets her nails done every couple of weeks, too. Our oldest son turned 38 on October 9th. This is a layout I did several years ago. His god father took the portrait! On Friday evening, I discovered that one of my bridesmaids was in Nashville for a wedding! She forgot that we lived here but I messaged her and we made plans to meet up the next day for lunch. Oh my gosh, it’s like no time had passed at all! We’ve known Suzanne and Pat since 1973 when we were attending the Junior College back in Miami. I last saw her 8 years ago. supplies: BMU_BeautifulBlack_Paper_Book, GBE_Blueberry_pop_solid_01, LLO_ArtAut_Emb_Swirl1, LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus_Emb_Leaf2, LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus_LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus, LLO_ArtAut_PprMini_Paper_GoldCanvas, MPE_Calendar, MPE_SIM3_Calendar, MPE_ScrapIt_Monthly_DateMarkers_Brushes, SBA_SSStyles_PhotoBorders_6501_White-Sm, SNU_SSStyles_ShadowMe6301_Lace-Wire, Font: Arial, CVW_SupplyTracker

    journaling: Poor puppy! We sedated her for three days so that the meds could build up in her system, and then we still had to muzzle her. She got everything but a heartworm test, but she has been on monthly pills for that so the vet isn’t concerned. She weighs 96.4 pounds! She rode home in a drugged haze. Bad puppy! After stepping in a pile of wood shards, we found that she has been chewing up to footboard of our bed! The comforter has covered it up. Till now. *SIGH* This heart-shaped rock is in the garden at mom’s nursing home. Pretty soon the leaves will begin to change, cooler weather will finally be here. supplies: BMU_BeautifulBlack_Paper_Book, GBE_Blueberry_pop_solid_01, LLO_ArtAut_Emb_Swirl1, LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus_Emb_Leaf2, LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus_LLO_ArtAut_JIFPlus, LLO_ArtAut_PprMini_Paper_GoldCanvas, MPE_Calendar, MPE_SIM3_Calendar, MPE_ScrapIt_Monthly_DateMarkers_Brushes, SBA_SSStyles_PhotoBorders_6501_White-Sm, SNU_SSStyles_ShadowMe6301_Lace-Wire, Font: Arial, CVW_SupplyTracker
