52 List Project : Comforts and Ideal Holiday Season

Just a quick update to my 52 List project today.  I was tackling List 45 and 46 in the last 2 weeks.  One list I was to list out the what makes an ideal holiday season for me and the other was to list my great comforts.  In case you are new here, I began the 52 List project at the end of October.  Here is my first post on getting started.  And here was my first updated post.  The 52 List project is a collection of weekly journaling prompts put together in a fabulous book by Moorea Seal which I’m not yet writing in as it is so gorgeous.  I’m working up to writing in it by first brainstorming my lists on my own printables.  (more…)

52 List Project Week 44 Update plus Free Printables

Just a quick update to my 52 List project that I have begun.  I began with week 43 which had me think about my favourite treats and snacks.  Why are my favourite foods my favourite foods?  A lot of it was related to childhood memories.  Fond memories of course, unless it was ‘liver’, then not so fond.  I haven’t yet decided if I’m going to be writing in the book itself. I quite like the hardcover of the book and haven’t yet decided to write in it or not. You can see from my first post on the project  how the book is set up.  I have been using printables to jot down my brainstorming for each prompt. You can pick these printables up at the end of the post.  (more…)

BEGINNING THE 52 LISTS PROJECT AND FREE PRINTABLES

I love to journal it is no surprise.  I love the process of writing to delve deep into myself to help guide me, recenter me, or just for a tune-up as the seasons of my life change.  I recently came across to books that I’m going to use to add to my self-journaling collection and so I thought I would share them with you too, as well as some free printables that I created to go with one of them.   (more…)

ZEN-MAMA RETREAT PATIO MOOD BOARD

Today is the Autumn equinox and summer nights are slowly fading away. Soon my back deck patio will be filled with snow but I dream of next summer and plan how I could enjoy my patio even more next year. Reviving my living spaces is a part of my One Little Word project. I love my backyard. Amidst the busy city, I can retreat into my own little sanctuary. I envision a more relaxing space, one where I can enjoy sitting in the morning sun, slowly sipping my coffee and journaling. (more…)

WELCOME SEPTEMBER AND FREE FALL SUBWAY ART PRINTABLE

Ahh, the routines, energy and commotion as we welcome September back.  After a lounging, non-structured summer in our house, we have to gear up and get back into the routine of school and activities again. But not before we enjoy the last tokens of summer.  Even though the weather might not be as hot as in the summer (although some Autumns have been known to be quite hot) there is still a quiet loveliness that comes with wearing scarves, drinking warm apple cider and the gorgeous fall colours.  Our usual outings in fall include the Edmonton Corn Maze and Prairie Gardens on Thanksgiving.  Of course all of this is mixed in with 3 kids now in school full time and their activities.
