A Story & How to Make a Simple Clipping Mask

A Story & How to Make a Simple Clipping Mask

In cleaning up behind the scenes here, I see I have a story from last December that didn't get shared. This is a good one to show how to create a template/simple clipping mask. First off, here's the story: Journaling Reads: The Juncos of Winter 19 Dec 2012 Today, it's snowing, and the … Read more...

2013 December Stories: The Set Up

2013 December Stories: The Set Up

Happy Halloween! I love that we're sliding into the holiday season. We don't really do much up here with this one - one of the things about living out a bit further. So, it's probably an appropriate day to share what I'm doing in December and again, invite you to join in on Cathy Zielske's 30 days … Read more...

Simply Smaller Project Life – Week 43

Simply Smaller Project Life – Week 43

WEEK 43 Even though we're busier than ever right now, I think this increase in activity actually helped to find what works for me with this whole Project Life system in a smaller format. Borrowing from Flylady, it's the old D.I.N.G. method. Do It Now, Girl! 10 minutes per story, take a photo toss … Read more...

Friday Phenology 18 Oct 2013

Friday Phenology 18 Oct 2013

As I write this, we have the first measureable snow fall of 2" on the deck. Earlier this week we had a couple of dustings of snow. So glad to welcome it back. The days have warmed, though, to give us some delightful days to get out and take some walks. The leaves on the aspen are almost gone - … Read more...

Rules for Living: Joy and Gratitude

Rules for Living: Joy and Gratitude

Many of you who follow me already know that my word for this year is JOY. I find it interesting that in this hard year, this was my word to guide me. My father passed away in May and a few huge projects had to be put on hold. We're getting Mike retired in a few short months and will be moving to the … Read more...

Aspen changing colors rapidly

Aspen changing colors rapidly

The aspen are changing rapidly now - once they get a tinge of yellow, they slide into all yellow within a day or two. Sometimes they almost seem to changing by the hour. The peak turning is maybe a day or two away, but it'll be this week. Other wet years we've also had a 'late' turning - so it's … Read more...

Field Journal Entry Organization

Field Journal Entry Organization

Ever since I decided to slice and dice my 12x12 pocket page protectors, I've been working to figure out a basic plan for each week so I don't need to reinvent the wheel and to bring cohesiveness to the field journal. My new Digital Date Set Companion piece* works so well for this: Printed from … Read more...

Field Journal of Life coming together

Field Journal of Life coming together

This shift to a smaller scrapbook has been a pretty smooth journey this year. What I originally thought would work smoothly, did, but wasn't quite right. So it adjusted and changed - as most things do. I had nearly filled the album and in order to continue on the second half of the year with the … Read more...

Yellowstone Phenology Records

Yellowstone Phenology Records

As I've sat here, with my leg propped up, writing about our glamping (glamour camping) adventure, and looking through my field notes taken while out there, I've thought quite a bit about how I want to set up a phenology binder (or binders) for all the various bits of information I've taken on this … Read more...

Day in the Life – July

Day in the Life – July

Near the end of each month, Ali Edwards offers a challenge to document your day in more detail: A Day in the Life. For July, yesterday was that day. I mainly took photos with my cell phone (except for the moth photos here), and jotted down what I did throughout the day on a couple of sheet of the … Read more...
