Project Life has been a little bit of a challenge for me this year. I've not taken a lot of photos this year at least yet. There's been a few reasons for that. For one, life has been pretty ordinary & I just didn't feel motivated to capture just the routine day in/day out things. I use Week in the Life for that. Secondly, I've become very conscious of how many albums I already have created and the space that they take up so I'm trying to find a balance between preserving the memories of my life (ordinary or not) with the amount of materials I'll leave behind to my children/grandchildren one day. So I switched to a monthly format for February through March instead of a weekly format. In May I'll switch back to a weekly format as we have several things scheduled in May that will provide photos.
This is also the second year that I have done (or attempted) A Week in the Life (WITL) in my Project Life (PL) album. Ali Edwards' set the last week in April for WITL. I suprised myself and took 54 photos in one day which I think has to be a record for me. However, there are days I only took 1-3. I did pretty well with the journaling although I have some ideas for next time (I think Ali will be doing this again later this year) that I think will help prompt me to write down some other details. I think I'll adapt Ali's journaling sheets for that. I want to add prompts to remind to write down what I'm reading, restaurants we go to, movies we watch, etc.
So here are my regular April pages. I had hoped to have my Week in the Life pages done too but
I'm still working on them.
Not too much going on - you can probably see the weather was back & forth. Spring one day, winter the next. I used the journaling cards from the Cobalt kit along with some items from Simple Stories. I can't remember if they were from Life Documented or year.ography sets. A little Easter basket added to the photo of my cats. I also put the postcard for the Art of Observation class I received with my scrapbook.com order along with my Heidi Swapp Memory Files stuff. So nothing fancy or exciting - just me and my life! Thanks so much for hopping by!
