Blogging has got away from me a little these last couple of weeks. Back to school has been immense in our house with Jackson starting a new school and Flynnie going into prep and we have been concentrating a lot of our time on the kids making sure they are settled and working out the routine. I have still been Project Lifeing and putting my pages on Instagram every week ( follow me @documenting_chaos ) but the blogging has taken a back seat.

Creme Eggs. How I love them! Thank goodness you can’t buy them all year round! Still loving bending stamps around curves – love this Hello Deliciousness stamp from Kellie Winnell – check out her clear and wood mount stamps here.

Jackson turned 8 on Australia Day and we had a party the day before.

Week 5 was back to school week. Jackson and Flynnie at the same school this year and Sawyer will be joining them there next year (I’m trying not to wish the year away by fantasising about only one drop off…!).

We had some good local media coverage about the practice which was great.

Saturday was our first ‘no-screen’ day. No iPads, computers, TV, phones etc etc. I think Kindee and I found it harder than the boys but I’m glad we did it and it will be a regular event now.

Week 6 and a sore tooth saw me on the other side of the dental chair :(

An award for Flynnie for ‘lovely manners’ at school. Would be nice to see some evidence of those manners at home!

SONY DSCCelebration for my buddy Sharon who is on the brink of building her home. She had a good news phone call from the bank while we were having coffee and I had to record the moment!

So those were the last three weeks. Hopefully I will be able to get back to blogging weekly now things are settling down a bit!

Project Life 2015 at Documenting ChaosSo the year has started in typically crazy style and suddenly it is the end of week three and I haven’t blogged yet!

I have been doing my Project Life though so here are my weeks so far. The layout above is my cover page for the first album of 2015. I’ve been hoarding those gold letterpress cards for ever and I’m glad I saved them for something special! The brush script of our names is by my beautiful friend Kristina who did an awesome brush script for Sawyer’s wall last year. Love her work!

Project Life 2015 at Documenting ChaosI am keeping it really simple this year but indulging my love for stamps!

Project Life 2015 at Documenting ChaosI have a massive collection of stamps that I have hardly used so I am making a big effort to get them on the page.

Project Life 2015 at Documenting ChaosWeek 2 project life at documenting chaosWeek 2 was a big week for me at work with the last week of training before the practice opened. Was so great to see the team coming together so well.

SONY DSCThe practice was looking great. All ready for our first patients!

Week 2 project life at documenting chaosWe kept busy all weekend so I didn’t have a chance to get too nervous! the boys kept me laughing with their funny faces!

IMG_7395Week three and we opened our doors! For me it was exciting and scary to see what would come of all the work I’d done over the last 5 months.

SONY DSCI needn’t have worried. There were the usual little hiccups but we were open and on our way (and booked out for three weeks!)

SONY DSCLove that shot of Flynnie’s school shoes old and new!

The weather has been crazy this week with thunder and lightning but very little rain. Luckily we finally got some rain yesterday but it is still very humid again now :(

I used some elements and stamps from the “Firsts” story kit by Ali Edwards in Week 3. I am so pleased I subscribed to these – check out Ali’s site here.

December Daily Day 24 at Documenting ChaosDecember Daily Day 24 at Documenting ChaosDecember Daily Day 24 at Documenting ChaosDecember Daily Day 24 at Documenting ChaosA bit of artistic licence to make the best use of those giant gold numbers and letters. I have had a lot of fun with them and they were definitely one of my favourite elements of the Ali Edwards December Daily kit.

December Daily Day 22 at Documenting Chaos December Daily Day 22 at Documenting Chaos Day 22 and it’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas! All the boys are here, I’ve nearly finished work and it’s time to have some fun! I LOVE the Muppet Christmas Carol and this year all the kids watched it too.

I included the photo I sent to my sister for her birthday – the kids thought it was so funny to do!

December Daily Day 21 at Documenting ChaosWhen we lost power just before 6pm I was about to put my Christmas cookies in the oven. Back into the fridge they went and out came the glass jars and tea lights! Luckily it wasn’t too humid and we had a delicious tea of pizza cooked in the barbeque!

December Daily Day 18 at Documenting ChaosJust a single page for Day 18 as I count down to having a bit of a rest over Christmas. The past 6 months have been a roller coaster and I’d real like to get off for a few days before it all starts again in January!

December Daily Day 17 at Documenting Chaos

Day 17 and I just had to mention these chocolate stars. They are amazing and this year there is a small version as well! I can’t go past the big ones though – they are delicious and a big favourite in our house!
