Jim recently made this cross-stitch of our family. I love it so much — makes a perfect addition to my title page for 2014. I used the Martha Stewart Cross-Stitch Family Portrait tutorial to draw the figures and he stitched it up. The Cross Stitch Family Patterns are here.
The page protector came from the Just Add Color Kit on HSN. I love all of the 2×2 pockets. I split the kit with three other friends but am considering ordering one for myself because I want more of those page protectors. They are so fun.
Samuel started drawing people this month. I made an overlay using a couple of his drawings. I look forward to doing this more this year and incorporating more of his artwork into our family book. The 4×6 card is from the Project Life Jade Edition.
I will be using the Project Life Jade, Midnight, Sunshine and Seafoam editions for my 2014 albums (I say albums because I can never fit a year into ONE). The Coral Edition is on its way from Oregon — I decided to split it with my friend and she’s shipping half of the kit to me.
I will be using the We R Memory Keepers 12×12 binder album in black again this year. When I started in 2010, I went with the We R Memory Keepers albums in Buttercup. Unfortunately, last year’s shade of buttercup was more of a pastel yellow so I decided to go with black for our family albums. I figured that black is easy to find — and it’s hard to mess up black. Ha!
