I’ve just finished the first handful of pages…. Pretty much all just paper and pen. Photos and cardstock. I’m not one for lots of embellishment or spending a lot of time on something other than the story….
The opening page just has a bit letter S (for Schubert) and my 10 favorite things about the season….
Next, just a little introduction, and opposite a business card and a photo from when Andrew and I went to a fancy dinner together…. Sept 10. The weather had just barely started to cool, so I’m calling that the beginning of our fall season.
Next a little blurb (and some packing material) from the first of our Christmas gifts. I try to get all my Christmas shopping done by Thanksgiving, so fall involves shopping for me…
Then a little blurb from a Sunday Andrew and I had off together that was cool enough to make us both want coffee in the afternoon. On the flip side of that white piece is a little Instax mini photo of our coffee pot.
Next is an insert of the 30 Rock cast photo, backed by yellow cardstock..
We watched all of seasons 1-4 of 30 Rock this month, and as Andrew has fallen in love with Liz Lemon, I think it’s a fun part of our story for this fall to include.
Next is 2 fall photos adhered back to back as their own page. Candy corn (pictured above) and supplies for homemade apple cider. Unfortunately, it has still been too hot in SoCal to justify MAKING the cider. But at least I have the supplies.
And finally, I printed out the banner I am using for Onward and Upward and paired it with some personal (and so blurred out here) journaling about running my first online workshop. O&U is a BIG part of my fall this year and it’s super exciting for me – of course I’m including it!
Are you guys doing a fall minibook or anything similar?
I’d love to see links in the comments!
