Hello, We are hoping you will join us for... Oh Snap! a year in pictures. It isn't a typical Project 365, although I love the concept, I'm just not good at taking a picture every single day, and I especially don't want to feel like I blew it if I missed a day.
The Goal: To be more mindful as we live. Snapping a photo makes it easier to notice and appreciate the everyday moments. It helps us to focus on the now, not anxiously waiting for the future or dwelling in the past.
We want to make it as easy as possible. So, we are dividing the year into 4 week segments, but feel free to organize it how you'd like. We are creating 1 page QuickMix layouts with 6 photos on a page for each week. However you can add or delete pages/photo boxes as you need.
The Big News... next year you will have an album full of photos of your year, a week at a time it's easy. Then to top it off we will have a Big Fat Discount for you to print your pages, book, booklet, board book - whatever you choose.
Donna and Terri became friends at MixinMania a few years ago. They haven’t met in person yet, but they have enjoyed their friendship through MemoryMixer sharing ideas and helpful hints including their latest project, getting their MemoryMixer Content Organized so they could easily find what they were looking for. Terri had already started and inspired Donna to do the same. They have both completed their organizing task and wrote to us sharing their excitement and ideas. They have given us permission to share them with you.
1. Create Printouts of Digital Content
They came up with the idea:
Create a new album for every embellishment, paper pack, Quick Mix, or project pack, and print it off on paper, with identifying information on each page as to where to find the item in each section of the Memory Mixer file trees. The end result was a catalog that provided photos of the various products in our Memory Mixer software – they shared “we were smitten with happiness to have conquered that challenge to make our Memory Mixer experience more organized!”
Both projects turned out a bit different. Donna printed her themed packs onto colored paper at a local print shop. Terri wanted a little more flexibility in organization and was looking for the most cost effective method of printing, so she created her pages on 4 x 6 prints that she sent to Costco for processing. She then purchased fancy binders and clear sheet protectors with various sized pockets.
Organize Printouts in a binder by category.
Their categories included:
Labels and Swirls
One Page QM
Easter, Halloween and Christmas
Borders and Clusters
3. They also have created an excel spread sheet listing their digital content. More information to come....
They are both excited to have finished their projects. Now they can easily browse their designs before sitting down to the computer and plan their upcoming photo projects!
Thank you Donna & Terri for sharing your ideas with us.
I think I like coloring more than my children do, but they have always been good sports to color along. In fact Santa still leaves coloring books and new crayons in their stocking, even though they were 19 & 28 last Christmas. However, I think it was probably the last Christmas they will both be home at the same time and that was a fluke. Our oldest is moving back to the area and was staying with us while their house is being built and our daughter was home for Christmas break. I have always liked crayons, pencils, notebooks, coloring books, etc. Those were the souvenirs I liked to bring home from family vacations, so you can understand why this new Adult Coloring Craze" had to be part of my Try New Things this summer. I love it and think you will enjoy it too.
Two things we kept in mind as we created these new products were:
1. What to do with it once they're finished
2. Keep the designs enjoyable to avoid tediousness.
And Voilá, a doodled line of coloring products that allow you to enjoy the benefits of de-stressing while creating beautiful cards & gifts for friends and family.
Trying new things has added some spice to my summer… literally.
Friday we zipped up to the Cache County Fair where we met our daughter for a fun evening. We were all starving and looking for something yummy. I finally found the corn on the cob that I was looking for. However, when we got to the front of the line I noticed that some of the corn was covered with something. I asked, only to learn that it was mayo, Cajun seasoning and Parmesan cheese (the kind you shake from a canister). I was disappointed. I don’t really care for any of those things, but now the men working the booth wouldn’t let me go. I had to try it.
Reluctantly I decorated the end of my corn with those ingredients. I loved it. I couldn’t believe it. How I would have missed out if I wasn’t willing to

I wouldn’t have guessed that an invitation to go camping 9 years ago would be the start of some of our favorite family traditions.
My mom had recently passed away, our oldest had left for college leaving our 10 year old daughter the only child home. It seemed very little remained the same. Needing a breath of fresh air, literally, we accepted the invitation. A week in the tall pine trees (with flushing toilets), a cute town nearby, all nestled next to a beautiful lake. Today, 9 years later I’m sitting at our campsite with years of memories and traditions all because we decided to try something new. Our oldest, now married, and our daughter home for a week from college have joined us. We are all together creating new memories and keeping old traditions. Keeping traditions that will last for generations.
Do you ever have those days when you pack everything into them that you can, and then nothings goes as planned. Well that was my day yesterday and is having a ripple effect on today. Believe it or not it all started one evening in January of 2015. It had been a busy day in the office, we had just arrived home and visiting in the car for a few minutes before Lane & I went inside. Our cute Koda, a chcolate lab, came running out to greet us. Then Lane noticed she was leaving wet foot prints behind her. Not a good sign. We quickly went inside to find our front loader washing machine had opened during a cycle and didn't turn off the rest of the day. It flooded our upstairs and our downstairs. The anticipated evening of watching a little TV while we waited for our son and daughter-in-law to arrive was turned into a disastrous clean up.
To make a long (18 months long) story short, we ended doing alot of the work downstairs ourselves. That meant hanging 40 sheets of sheetrock, cutting 18 holes for lights in the sheetrock, I have no idea how many outlets and light sweitches we had to cut out, applying 30 gallons of mud and sanding it afterwards, priming and painting the walls and ceiling... the list felt like it went on forever. And of course, now we were up against a deadline for the insurance company, which turned out to be a blessing. It got us started. We ended up changing the deadline (carpet coming) several times. The last deadline was today, however yesterday morning we received a phone call asking if they could come then instead of today, so the last few things on the list we had to do yesterday before they could come.
However sitting on the couch last night we forgot all of the blood, sweat and tears and totally felt like we were on vacation. As we climbed into bed last night I told Lane, "Today is one of my life's highlights." It felt so satisfying, the sense of accomplishment made it all worth while. However the ripple effect of yesterday didn't allow me to finish getting my typical What Else Wednesday finished... stay tuned for pictures and What Else Wednesday next week.
