12 Days of Gifts: Project Life Album

Howdy! Welcome back for another edition of 12 Days of Christmas Gifts!

I became a little starstruck when I saw her (I’ve been following her blog/products for the past 14 years!). So I didn’t ask her anything profound (actually I didn’t ask her anything — she was actually asking me questions! I told you I was starstruck… just “crickets” from my side of the conversation!). Anyway, before the “meet and mingle” portion she did a little Q & A and a demo of her new Project Life App (so cool, but top secret right now!). She also had some of these yummy treats for us: Don’t they look delightful? It was breakfast time when
