I wrote a post on www.amandarosezampelli.com to celebrate that time I was Selena for Halloween. I don't think you quite understand...I was possessed by the spirit of La Reina herself. Head to my site to see how the costume came together and to watch a minute-long video of my 'performance.'
I can't believe I am on my third & final 6x8 Project Life album of 2015!!! Head over to my website amandarosezampelli.com for more details on the intro page of album 3, and to see all three albums' intro pages next to each other for comparison. See ya there!
Grams was here for the week leading up to our cousin Danielle's wedding. At the wedding, her sister Jenny set up her PHOTOBOOTH and the pictures above are some of my favorites. I plan to print the two with my Grandma and send them to her in Florida. I've also thought of blowing up three or four of my favorite ones to poster size and hanging them on the wall above my couch. We'll see what comes of them, but for now: as photos in this post is just fine.
I'm excited to finally share with you some shots from my first LADIES CRAFT NIGHT. It's been something I've wanted to host / do/ start up for a long time and I'm proud of myself for setting a date and just doing it.
To prep, I purchased each attendee two medium-sized orange pumpkins and two mini white pumpkins (Trader Joe's had 'em for a good price). I laid brown craft paper I got from Staples on my long dining table to catch any paint drips or splatters. I also spread out 'a runner' of masking tape, paint brushes, and paint down the middle of the table.
I have my second LADIES CRAFT NIGHT scheduled for next Friday. I plan to host one of these once a month, and I hope to get better at hosting this type of craft event with each one! I'm excited! Stay tuned!
These are some pinned images I've recently added to my Pinterest account. To look at them collectively, you can tell what mood I'm in and where my brain's been at. This month I see and feel the Halloween spirit influencing my pins.
I've been pinning grey and hands. Subtle colors, a cat mat giving the finger, and black sneakers! I don't wear black sneakers. I never did, but this season: I might.
Social media is strange. That was basically the theme of my 2o+ minute Periscope video I did last night at 8:15pm EST. I believe you can still watch it for the next few hours, until it disappears into a black hole forever, but yeah...
I talked about the PROS and CONS of living in a 'posting culture' and share a story that made me feel 'posting guilt', and for my first one, I had a small but enthusiastic bunch of listeners. Yay!
I was happy I did it in the spirit of 'JUST START' and hopefully I'll have it in me to do some more in the near future. I'm trying to work out the kinks and get used to the Periscope platform before contributing to the me & my BIG ideas Periscope (which you can find out more about here).
Thanks for stopping in, and I'd love for you to give it a listen! Have a great day!
Hey, boo boos! I'm popping in today to let you know that I posted the two recent projects you see above and below to my website: www.amandarosezampelli.com.
Yes, I've been few & far in between this site and that one, sporadically posting, trying to revamp what currently is that space and get back into some sort of personal blogging routine. This has been going on since May-ish, and it's October this week. But, anyway, I digress.
Details on the October prep page in my Happy Planner can be found HERE and my Project Life 2015 |Summer| pages can be found HERE. Hope you check 'em out! thanks for stopping by! xoxo
