January 2, 2013

My first unboxing video! I still look sick but it was still nice to open this wonderful gift and share it in this way. I really enjoyed the process and look forward to sharing more!


I've decided that this week will be my gentle crossover from 2012 to 2013 and in such I'm doing fun things like deciding on my datebook and journal for the year, how to do the final captures of 2012 and what I want to focus on in 2013. It's all still pretty fuzzy, but it's getting clearer. I'm trying to be way less manic than I normally am on things which is very....odd. But also a lot more calm. We'll see how it goes!


Reg kept me company as I was unconscious on the couch thanks to Benalyn. He was watching Highlander but during commercials would turn to My Fair Lady to make sure I was not too far gone. Especially the part, "Come on Dover, move your blooming ass!" Which I of course had to say too, one of my favourites lines of all time. These two movies are such Ridler choices, made me feel at home.

I love the idea of a gentle crossing from year to year - especially since so much of the process is fun! Why not extend it and enjoy the ride! Sounds like an awesome plan.

Way to go Jamie! And that kit is perfect for you. BTW, that binder is the traditional scrap booking size so all scrap booking paper will fit in it which is very cool. I think you did a great job!!!

Shannon, easing into the new year getting organized without it bein too much sounds wise to me.

I feel so behind! All I have been doing is sleeping 2013 away so far. Gotta kick this cold!

I am a little late but managed to put something up!

LOL, thanks for letting me know about the binder. It seems HUGE to me! I'm sure it will be great to work with - but how the heck do you store it?

I LOVE your movie combo, Suzie. That's hilarious - and totally feels like home.

Take good care of yourself. I hope you're feeling better really soon. ((hugs))

YAY for first Unboxing Jamie! What a fun way to share :)

I'm so sorry to hear you are still sick Suzie but it sounds like Highlander/My Fair Lady combo was the perfect fit. I haven't seen My Fair Lady in so long, I can't even place that moment! I'll have to keep my eye out for it being on again :)

I'm really liking this whole easing into the new year thing, I kept that up today for sure.
