A Month in Photos - January 2012


The big kids started back to school here in Canada.
We celebrated a special little two year olds birthday.
We sent Daddy off to far away Atlanta, Georgia to study.
We spent many hours on Skype talking to Daddy.
We went grocery shopping.
We got reacquainted with our sweet dog Buddy.
We celebrated our 13th anniversary. Our first one ever spent apart.
We got a head start on some valentine's baking.
Carson discovered a love of hockey.
We went ice fishing + sledding.
We stayed inside where it was warm and watched the snow fall.
We did crafts, we vacuumed and we drank hot chocolate.

Can you even believe that here we are already, into the second month of 2012!?

I wasn't quite ready for January to be over, but that didn't stop me from having fun going through this past month's photos and putting together my very first month-in-photos collage of 2012! I'm so excited about this project and I'm just as excited to hear of all the people who will be joining in the fun with me this year!

If you've created a collage of your month in photos for January, I'd love for you to share it with us! Simply post your collage somewhere online {can be your blog, flickr, etc.} Copy and paste the html code for the month-in-photos button below and include it in your post,  then come back here and leave a link to your collage so everyone else can see your fun photos! 

For more info about the month in photos project go here to read all about it. You can download any of my free collage templates or use your own collage and join in the fun with us each month! Just think of the incredible collection of photos we'll have put together at the end of 2012

I can't wait to see your month in photos!

  1. Beautiful pictures. are you using the scrapbooking program to make your collage? With Picnik closing I need a new source:)

  2. I love your collage - that huge cupcake looks very delicious! :)

  3. i am totally doing this...and you totally relieved that pressure i was already feeling about my 365 goal. i'm just too busy right now, but i still want to do something. this is the perfect solution. i'm going to be working on my january collage later today...will be linking up later :)

  4. @LaniI used photoshop to create my collage but you can also use PSE. Piknik would be a great option {though I'm not sure how much longer it will be available?} and another place you can create fun collages is at

  5. @Aliciacan't wait to see your collage Alicia! project 365 wasn't something I felt up to managing these past few years either...though I would like to tackle it again someday. For now, documenting my month like this has been much more manageable. :)

  6. I just linked up! I have to say a HUGE thank you to you, Rebecca. Over the last several weeks I made pages for my 2011 pictures and I love it. I am so happy my kids have recent pictures to see.

    I'm excited to keep up with it month by month this year. Thanks for the template!

  7. Gorgeous Photos! Thank you for this "challenge" as I am super excited to see my progress, as well as how my children age, at the end of the year. :)

  8. Funny how you are enjoying doing the things that we take for granted being here all winter. It is like winter is all new to you again. Anothering thing to be thanksful for with your amazing experience
