Well, hey there everyone. Been a while, hasn't it?
Last year this blog derailed a bit due to a number of reasons. The top three, in no particular order:
Number One. I love love love reading other people's blogs. Last year, I maybe spent a little too much time reading, and not enough time writing.
My favourites are A Beautiful Mess and Enjoy it.
Elsie, Emma, and the rest of the team at ABM are basically an empire. These queens of the blogosphere write about DIY projects, fashion, crafts, recipes, scrapbooking, and home projects. They have many different writers who contribute to their highly successful blog.
Elise's blog is much more personal. She blogs about goals and challenges and motivation and being creative. She shares pieces of her daily life with her baby girl and Navy doctor husband. When I read her posts, I feel like I'm catching up with a pal.
Go check out these blogs; you'll love 'em.
Number Two. Erin and I started Project Life last year. (Later, I got a few more pals on board). What it PL, you ask? In her own words, creator Becky Higgens writes, "Project Life® is an ultra-simple, über-stylish solution for getting your photos off your phone and computer, out of boxes, and into albums." It's about printing your everyday photos, adding embellishments, and some text, and slipping them into pockets, It's the easiest scrapbook ever. And it's kind of addicting. And with reference to Number One, there are bloggers who just blog about Project Life... *hearts in eyes*.

Here's an example of a layout from Tracey at the single girl's scrapbook. She rocks Project Life. Go check out her work and fall in love.
Number Three. When I drive to work, it's dark and when I drive home from work it's dark. I know, I know. There could be worse problems in my life. It just makes it hard to take outfit photos.
M is probably thinking that this is a list of excuses, or Johns as gamers like to call them, but it's not. Think of it more as an explanation to the question: where has Meg gone?!
I'm going to try harder in 2015. I still love reading a good book, and creating a good outfit. I make up random style challenges for myself - and succeed at them :)
Come back soon; I'll be around. Promise.
♥ Meg xoxo
