May Project 12

Sweet sweet May, you are trucking along nicely towards the summer sunshine, but you may want to scale back on the amount of rain.


Lots of stuff going on in our home this past May.

My Biggest turned four, we had a federal election,My neighbourhood imposed a 3 month outdoor water ban,  the world was apparently going to end, I passed a huge Loss Prevention Audit at work and I started a weight loss journey.

Whew, I'm pooped just typing that.

I am happy to report I once again completed my layout for Project 12 in a timely manner despite all of this activity!

I quite enjoyed this month and unexpectedly whipped it out in no time at all.

I'm chalking it up to the product.

Hometown Summer is by far my most favorite release from CHA winter.

I visited 4 stores to try and track down some of the embellishments and I'm glad I did!  It made pulling this project together zippy!

I may just do the rest of my summer projects with this paper!

I do have to admit I let the Sassafrass labels go this month, but I stuck with my Facebook updates as the majority of my journalling.  It made me chuckle.  Here's what I was thinking last month:

  • May 1st at 9:40pm; Not a big surprise, but after conducting some Google research there is no such thing as a male fascinator. Shocking, I know.
  • May 2nd at 5:45pm; Vote!
  • May 2 at 10:30pm; Regardless of your political beliefs, you have to be in awe of a man that can convert a province. History was made tonight. I'm interested in seeing how this will play out not only tonight but moving forward.
  • May 2 at 10:30pm; Crazy the stats that elections Canada is reporting for the number of people who voted versus those who were registered.
  • May 2 at 10:55pm; What will become of The Block????
  • May 2 at 10:59pm; Majority Gvt. without the majority of Canadians support said leader of green party. Can't complain or have opinion if you didn’t vote peeps.
  • May 2 at 11:15pm; Happy Birthday to my sweet, sweet Michael. YAY for leaving three and moving on to four!
  • May 3 at 1:48pm; Waybulu?? 
  • May 11 at 6:41a pm; I wish, I wish, I wish...But I need to do, do, do and that is the hard part.
  • May 11 at 10:42 am; 10:42am and my brain is already fried.
  • May 12 at 10:44am; I feel like I have a ton of things to say, but I am too tired to even speak.
  • May 16 at 6:56pm; Hotel booked at the 1/2 way mark. Levis will never be the same!
  • May 18 at 11:09am; Does micro-carbonated mean smaller bubbles?
  • May 18 at 10:18pm; Our grass is so green it is almost fluorescent. I guess we can thank the rain for that.
  • May 19 at 7:03am; Noon tomorrow....D-day.
  • May 19 at 7:54pm; And if micro-carbonated means smaller bubbles, is a micro brewery small as well??? 
  • May 19 at 8:03pm; I have no will power...really.
  • May 20 at 10:20pm; You would think that after working 20hours in 2 days that I would be asleep by now. 
  • May 20 10:20pm; See you on the flip side my dear friends. ☺ May 21 6:55am; Well the earth didn't end. 
  • May 22 at 7:47pm; The great thing about white capris pants is that the chocolate ice cream from 4 year old hands shows up quite nicely on them.
  • May 22 at 8:58pm; An ice cream truck just rolled down my street....For realzies.
  • May 23 at 7:31pm; My journey starts tomorrow. Wish me luck.
  • May 24 at 9:14pm; Day one done. I was climbing walls most of the day. This is harder than quitting smoking.
  • May 26 at 7:11pm; Calories sneak themselves in the most unsuspecting places.
  • May 26 at 9:36pm; No words can properly describe how sad and tragic that accident was. Thoughts and prayers to the family. Hug your children a little tighter tonight.
  • May 28 at 2:06pm; Great Glebe Garage Sale, and A great lunch! Love Saturdays off! 
  • May 28 at 9:23pm; Dear City of Ottawa, I understand that the riverside South outdoor water ban is imperative to prevent contamination of our drinking water. I would suggest however that you repair the fire hydrant that has been spewing moderate amounts of water for the last three days (that I have noticed) on Earl Armstrong. Sincerely, someone who would like to use water outdoors. 
  • May 28 at 10:07pm; Stop the presses! I'm having a glass of wine!
  • May 29 at 3:13pm; There be some crazy drivers on the streets of Ottawa on this activity filled Sunday!
  • May 29 at 9:12pm; Dang Mosquitoes. Who knew they were attracted to the color black?! I now have eight bites, on my back that I accumulated on a one hour walk. And those frickers weren't so tiny! 
  • May 31 at 8:54pm; My Baby turns two tomorrow. Happy Birthday to my sweet, sweet Jack!

 So now that I have either bored or amused you with my updates let's check out the sketch:


There you have it my Friends, May all wrapped up.
I hope yours was a month to remember.


  1. The facebook updates as journalling are brilliant! Great idea! If I did facebook, I'd totally have to do that ;)

    Another great month of P12!

  2. You are so smart with your facebook updates! I also adore the Pink Paislee border and the feeling of home and family with your choice of embellies.
    I also concur on the rain in May. :)
