STB - november 27 2023

 More November 2023 in my STB memory planner. 

This week was pretty consumed by DH's pre-op, OP and hospital stay. Good news was he was up and moving like the old days after his discectomy.

And can we talk Wordle? Do you Wordle? Do you always start with the same word? I don't. I'm somehow "moved" to start with a different word every day. Took "snowy" this time cuz everywhere else was getting snow (we actually did a couple days later). And it led to an old family dog's name for the win. Crazy eh?

Lots of Heidi Swapp goodies this week. Those dissected word stamps with the little phrases to add to them - love those. How about the vellum file folder for hiding journaling.  And... the Heidi Swapp tiny stamps!

STB - november 20 2023

More November 2023 in my STB memory planner. Slowly but surely we're making our way to year end.

This was a busy week with some health issues, creative time designing a wedding card to match a wedding invitation and a mini-Thanksgiving for us with the kids. Oh and Left Coast Revivals binging. Love that girl.

Using up stash when working on my Heidi Swapp memory planner preserving memories like this ;) Giving those old alpha stamps a workout. And alpha dies. And playing with PP for pockets and flaps. Is there anything more fun than little photo books? And... the Heidi Swapp tiny stamps!

The next week of November 2023 in my STB memory planner.

A long weekend in France was fun as usual and also got my Christmas season excitement going. 

My next book - The Subtle Art of not Giving a F*ck by Mark Mason. Audiobooks for the win.

Incorporated a brochure from Colmar to cover up some of the busy-ness on the right hand page.

Stamps. Number stickers for dates. And lots of photos in my Heidi Swapp STB memory planner this week.

STB - november 6 2023

I've made it to November 2023 in my STB memory planner! 

Wrapping up MI and heading to Germany. Well we tried but got diverted to Boston. With a plane full of Indianapolis fans who were heading to Frankfurt for the Patriots-Colts game. Talk about irony.

And I listened to my first audiobook on that flight - It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover. Audiobooks are my thang now!

Incorporated a journal card I made a long time ago. Stamps. Number stickers for dates. And some washi my Heidi Swapp STB memory planner this week.

STB - october 30 2023

Bye bye October in my STB memory planner for 2023. 

And bye bye to my kind uncle. So sad. But so glad to be in town for his funeral. Don't you hate it when the only time you see extended family is at a funeral?

Some stash on my memory planner -stamps, stickers, ephemera. All the things.

STB - october 23 2023

More of October in Michigan in my STB memory planner for 2023. 

Was one of those shopping weeks again ;) Some copper mugs and a rug. Also a family party planned and then cancelled. That was a bummer.

But on a happier note... stash on my memory planner this week included those great, big, plastic alphas, smaller alphas and message board stamp from Heidi Swapp STB. Some stickers. And PP sleeves for housing photo strips. How'd ya like those creepy baby dolls? I loved them. Part of a haunted village at the Sanilac County Historical Museum.

STB - october 16 2023

It's the October in northern Michigan in my STB memory planner for 2023. 

Is it a record? Not sure.  I've got over 50 photos housed on this spread.

We went on a quick getaway to the U.P. (IYKYK) and I always want to include so many photos from our trips. I suppose that's why lots of people actually create travel journals/notebooks! To be fair, some of those 4x6s have 15 tiny photos on each. I just tucked them into a pocket made out of a fudge box which I tucked under a coaster from a great restaurant we ate at in Marquette. I like this method of just including the 4x6 cuz it limits the bulk. I create enough bulk in other ways ;)

I journaled letter style on notepaper from the hotel we stayed at and housed that in a sleeve on the lower right. With all those bugs cuz it was great to be up north after the monster bugs were gone :)

Not a lot of stash on my  memory planner this week, though I did color in some outline alphas with colored pencil a la Heidi Swapp!

Gotta love those large plastic alphas from an STB kit. And the tabbed swivel cards. And the letterboard stamp! Not a lot of old stash on my Heidi Swapp memory planner this week.

We've made it into September 2023 in my 2023 STB memory planner. 

Happy 30th to DH and me. We celebrated with a bike ride on a beautiful day. (And lotsa photos tucked under a vellum flap.)

And a mishmash of other events tucked under a PP flap. What a fun addition to a spread - much more real estate for photos (and stickers). Have to do this more often.

The good, the bad and everything in between this week.

OK are you noticing a pattern? Another spread with a couple round photos ;) Made little pockets to house the not-very-interesting photos and topped them with ancient green alpha stickers.

Using up stash when working on my Heidi Swapp memory planner preserving memories like this ;) Random stamps for some background interest. Alpha stamps. Alpha dies and PP. And a tiny bit of washi. Cuz washi is always a good idea. And makes for good tag pulls.
