I know what you're thinking...we're getting ready to start a new year and you're only 7 weeks into Project Life?!
No. I'm 7 weeks into sharing Project Life. :) But in reality, I'm not much farther than that. I think I'm on week 15 in my book.
I'm not worried. You know why? Because my organization system is actually working! My notes are good enough, my realia sorted, and my photos are sorted well enough after I upload them, that it's easy to catch up. It's now worked well for me for 2 years. I spent 3 hours one day in my office this week and got weeks 7-14 done, and that wasn't the only thing I was working on! I think that's a pretty good return. Now I just need to ignore my house for a few days and do it again. :)
So here's weeks 7 and 8, which I put together in a two page spread:
For the title card I used a My Mind's Eye sheet cut up and the Silhouette my husband gave me last Christmas for the title itself. Love that thing! I cut off the title strip on the patterned paper, it's called The Sweetest Thing. I thought that'd make a great little side note and put it in the pocket to the right of the title block.
I also included an Instaweather pic of my kids having snocones in February, because it was in the 80's. Seriously. I liked their pictures this time so I included a few of them. What can I say, they were making cute faces and poses.
I also included a selfie of my daughter and I checking out the new Hobby Lobby. Love that place. I've had to drive forever to get to one, but this week a new one opened in a town only about 25 minutes from my house.
I used an old ledger sheet for the week in review and included a few of my Facebook posts this week. I think I like doing that and might include more of those in the future.
On the right side of the spread:
On this side we have a few shots of my middle kid getting student of the month at her school. :) She was excited! I also tucked the letter her teacher sent me, notifying me of the assembly time, into one of the pockets. On the top right we have my husband's acceptance letter to the nursing school of his choice for his RN and then NP program. I know it was a big relief for him to get in.
I also included the doctor's page from my youngest daughter's kindergarten appointment. She is now ready to enroll for fall!
On the bottom is a shot from a friend's birthday party. She's into sheep. There were real sheep at the party. Too stinkin' cute.
And on the bottom right is this:
This would be how my 8 year old chose to do his reading homework. The whole 20 minutes.
So I'll be sharing more pages (at least up till week 15 ;)) in the coming days, as well as updates on my 30 days of Thankfulness album every few days too.
I'd love to know where you guys are on Project life. Anyone caught up?
