Project Life, Part II

I am finally caught up with Project Life and would like to share photos + words that describe my life in the last five weeks.  This is such a fun project and I’m so glad that I purchased the kit.

I love this project — I’m totally caught up and hope that I can keep this going the rest of the year.

Next week, I’m going to play along with Ali in her Week in the Life challenge.  I’m starting to organize my supplies and make a list of the stuff I want to photograph/document.

My 2010 : 365 : Project Life is coming along nicely.  I attempted to do this in 2009 with the photos I posted on Flickr and after completing one month’s worth of photos, I was exhausted and overwhelmed.  Part of the problem was waiting until the end of the month to print my photos.  I used the We R Memory Keepers 6-up page protectors for the entire month and wasn’t really satisfied with the overall look.  So, project 2009 : 365 came to a halt.  I continued to take photos just to post on Flickr.

Here’s a look at my attempt at 365 : Project Life (using the the GT Kit) in 2009:

Earlier this year, I ordered Becky Higgin’s Project Life and have really enjoyed the process of documenting my everyday life — from the mundane life chores to exciting trips.  I got into the routine of uploading my weekly photos to Costco, submitting my order on Friday (although my week doesn’t start until Sunday), picking them up on Saturday, and inserting them into my book that evening.  I don’t take the time to record my thoughts on the cards each day, but I write them on a post-it note (and on Flickr) for when I have more time.  The pockets are perfect for inserting receipts, business cards, notes, etc, so I find myself inserting them in the appropriate page protectors as I go.  It is so easy to keep up and I’m really enjoying the process.

Here’s a look at what I have so far: Title Page

That’s all I have time to share for now.  I’m sick and am feeling exhausted again.  I’ll share more pages tomorrow when I can take better photos.  Thanks for looking.

Getting ready for CKU

Just about to finish packing for CKU-Provo.  Can’t believe I’m leaving in te morning for four days of scrapbooking bliss!

Can’t wait to see old friends + meet some new ones.   Looking forward to taking Ali’s Evolution class.

Here’s my entry for the page layout contest.  Can’t see it very well because I’m holding up the color copy.  Will post better images when I return.Page Layout Contest
