around here...


around here has been crazy busy with summer stuff. trying to get to the pool everyday as the summer hours change next week. the girls have been attending day camp every afternoon. late evening play time with the neighbors and cousins. grilling and salads for dinner as well as enjoying local produce of the season.

around here we are all getting excited for the little mr. to make his appearance. weekly dr. appointments with sonograms and non-stress test as well as chatting with the dr. rounds out the weekly routine of this little guys life. the nursery is all in order. bags are just about packed. dinners are in the freezer. menus are being made for the next few weeks. eager for him to not be early, to not be late...but to be on time.

around here i am attempting to get my creative space in order and stay neat about things. that is not so successful...but i can try, eh?

around here i just turned in my last WIP assignments before maternity leave starts. the above page is an extra one i did by lifting the ever so fabulous maggie holmes. her easy style is so fresh and fun.

and this is one of my favorite pics of my girlies early in the year. they are so amazing together. and i love how the page turned out too.

around here i am dreaming of how to best document this little guys life. i am in such a different place creatively than when i had my other children. so i am sure his account will be different. i am loving this photo calendar of ali e's. in an attempt to do a project365 of this newest son, i think this template will be the best way to go about it. fun!

around here i am so excited to take a brand new art class by debbee campos. inspire lovely is very much outside of my box creatively, and just the thing to get me through this 39th week of pregnancy. it's seven days of paint, and needle, and art oh my! perfect.

so, what's going on in around your space?



  1. I quite LOVE the soft pink to go with these papers!! I would have never thought of that, thanks for the inspo!! I love that!!!! Take care yourself, and good luck with the baby and everything!

  2. Great page Jamie!
    That art class sounds wonderful and I like your idea for documenting your new son's life!

    Hugs ~
