Hello Friday.

Sunflowers


1. No specific weekend creative today. Hoping that many of you will be able to play with your week in the life albums over the weekend.


2. Thanks for the excitement regarding the stamps yesterday. They should be back in stock and appearing in local and online stores soon!


3. Jessica Sprague (one of my favorite instructors) is teaching and offering a free, one-week class on her site (jessicasprague.com) on the topic of collecting stories you want to tell. It's called Stories In Hand. You don't have to be a scrapbooker to take this class. You don't have to be a digital scrapbooker to take this class. You just need to be interested in collecting your own personal stories in an organized fashion (love that idea). Registration begins October 20th. Here's the class flyer:

4. Sharing some more awesome week in the life projects (I have loved seeing these come in a bunch of different languages - keep them coming as you get into the creative/crafty phase):

5. Coming next week: look for a week in the life follow-up, a Halloween mini-album (documenting 2007), Halloween product ideas, new Designer Digitals and more.   


6. Have a great weekend. We are savoring the season around here. It is really starting to get chilly in the mornings while we wait for the bus for Simon. I am doing lots of cooking (which began during my week and hasn't really stopped since - last night it was cranberry-pumpkin cookies) and lots of budgeting/looking at our finances (getting our "house" in order). Chris calls it "nesting gone awry" even though I know he is happy to have me doing these things. I am very much loving being here at home.

    I agree! The sunflowers are beautiful! The stamps are already sold out at Technique Tuesday? Maybe I'll look again a little later on. These stamps are going to be like your Cocoa Daisy kit, we'll have to stay up until midnight to get them! lol
    I hope you continue to partner up with more companies, it would be wonderful to see a whole line of Ali Edwards scrapping supplies!!

    I am having the greatest time putting this "A Week In The Life Of" book together. I'm hoping to finish this weekend. You can see at pipscrapstudio.typepad.com BTW - I'm just biting into digital scrapbooking and having the darndest time! I suppose reading directions may help - just wanted to let you know that your designs are sooooo inspiring. Thank you! Have a great weekend.

    I love everybody's take on the week in life! Thank you so much for inspiring us like this Ali! My 2,5 year old son has gotten so used to the camera in the week-of-the-life that he now says at every little moment (like putting on his shoes :) Take photo mommy? LOL. Flickr suddenly asks for my password that i can't seem to find right now, so a link to my progress with the wee-of-life album: http://scrappersparadise.typepad.com/

    Nesting gone awry is just fine - any nesting is good. Days are cool and crisp here and so dark when Brody's bus comes. Very excited about Jessica's class.
    Getting ready for our thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, lots of family, food and fun.
    Have a great weekend.

    Wow -- each idea seems better than the last one! Just goes to show that there truly is no right or wrong way and that each of us really does have a story to tell! Thanks again for doing this project with us Ali -- you are awesome!

    Love seeing how other's put together their albums! Goodluck with the budgeting. Have to say that I am a huge Dave Ramsey fan. Check out his site for budgeting advice: www.daveramsey.com

    These are ALL so wonderful. I think I'll start over. I'm thinking of focusing on my word for this year (another idea I got from you) which is "learn".

    Do you have suggestions for enlarging the journaling area for the 12 x 12 page? Parts of the day of the week in your handwriting lean over the lines, plus there are vertical lines that don't stretch. Thanks for letting me know.

    I have really loved this "week in the life" project. Thanks for always motivating me to do something new.
    We trying to get our "house in order" too. Cutting back and paying off debt-feels good!
