So as a little background on our family, I have 5 siblings And my husband has 6 siblings. We have 10 sibling in laws. And together have 36 nieces and nephews. And we don’t live by any of them. They all live on the West Coast, and we are still a good two day drive {or more} from them. I wanted to start a tradition that helped us to be able to feel connected to everyone individually, and so I started sending a birthday card to our siblings and their spouses, and their kids, and of course our parents. It’s a lot to remember,...

Did you guys happen to read my other posts about family yearbooks? You can still check them out if you haven’t! Introduction to Family Yearbooks {Traci Style} Why I use Blurb Okay! Now that we got that out of the way! My final thoughts, collages! Have I ever mentioned that I am probably THE MOST indecisive person in the world? I am pretty sure I am {see, I am even indecisive on whether or not I am the most!} So, when I take pictures I take a ton, and then when I put them on the computer I love them all so much I can’t choose...

{Please don’t hate the blurry pic, I did that on purpose 🙂 Is anyone else out there a journal-er? I LOVE journaling, I really enjoy watching myself grow as a person, and be able to look back and see and remember things and feelings and thoughts, that I would otherwise just forget. I love remembering the little things, not EVERY little thing, but some of the little things. And, being married, I love to write, often, all the big and little things I love about my husband. So that I am always focusing on the good, and remembering...

Today I just wanted to share a SUPER simple {and cheap} Project that will keep your toddler busy for hours {okay, maybe not HOURS but at least one hour, for sure}. When our little family first moved to Florida, we moved into a two bedroom apartment. Which was just the right size for our family of three. But moving a one year old across the country when he is used to having tons of cousins and a yard was a hard thing to adjust to. Plus, Florida is HOT. We moved in August which is about as hot as hot can be! So, we were stuck inside a little...

I am so in love with dafont.com. There are so many awesome fonts to choose from. I have found a few that I use ALL. THE. TIME. These are not your typical fonts. They are extremely well designed and all the fonts I’m sharing with you today are actually by the same person. Her name is Kimberly Geswein. You can find her website here. I just wanted to show you some of her awesome fonts. They are all free for personal use (awesome!)      Skinny Love Only Hope Somebody That I Used To Know Sweet N Sassy Ways To Say Goodbye Strawberry...

I try hard to incorporate some learning activities into my son’s day. He’s young (25 months) so there isn’t much I can do but I have figured out that he is starting to pick up on colors and shapes. Before today, all I’ve done is say things like “That blanket is yellow!” or “you’re playing with a red truck!” When...

We just moved into a new house. We got an awesome deal on it. It’s a rental, and it’s rented out as a two bedroom, because there are two bedrooms upstairs, but, there is a HUGE basement. The problem is that the basement was in pretty bad shape when we moved in. One of the rooms has mold in the ceiling, and all the rooms are super dirty. The family room...

Did you guys know that this blog is less than 7 months old? It’s hard to believe that in 7 months Traci and I have come this far. I recently signed up for a blogging course put on by Amy from One Artsy Mama. She’s designed a course with each week focusing on a different blogging topic. We started off with goals and now we’re half way through and reflecting on how far we’ve come so far. I have to say that the biggest thing I’ve been able to fix is my photography skills. I thought I was doing okay, but after...

I am so excited to share this post with you! I really wish I would have taken more pictures for you guys, but you’ll see what I mean as I describe how I did this. I have really been wanting to purchase a picture of Christ {Framed and Matted} for My husband and My Bedroom. We have a lot of smaller pictures of Christ up, but I really want to have some bigger ones, but they are crazy expensive! A 33×21 Framed Picture of Christ would cost me around0 $300 dollars. Which is not really in our budget right now. So, my husband and I...
