Project Life – Week 1

29 Oct

Hello Hello!

I am so sorry I have been neglecting this little space of mine. Life sure gets busy and I have always told myself that I want this blog to be fun, and the minute it becomes a chore it isn’t what it’s supposed to be anymore. So I have been busy studying, working, crafting and spending good quality time with family and friends. I hope you all have been doing the same!

I want to share something today that is so fun for me and really changing the way I’m looking at my day to day routines. Lets start from the beginning… Around January I saw this thing called Project Life popping up all over Pinterest. I had to know more. So I did some digging and found out that one of my favorite creative people, Becky Higgins has created a super simple way to document your life in beautiful way. Project life can be anything you want it to be. You make it work for you. I decided I wanted to document my 25th year and knew project life was the answer. I took the plunge and haven’t looked back since. I love this project!

What is project life? To me project life is a way to document the big and little stories that make us who we are. I love this project because I love taking photos and actually using them. With Project Life you have the opportunity to document the big moments along with the day to day routines. This is my journal. This is my record about life right now. What a precious gift to myself and my family today and 20 years from now. 

Today I want to share with you my take on project life.

PL – Week One:

Well.. here is week one! It is fairly busy since it was my birthday week. On the left page I included photos from my birthday celebrations and gifts. I also cut part of the card that one of my favorite toddlers made me and stuck it in one of the 3×4 pockets. The insert that I included  features a blog post I did about turning 25 and my birthday cards.

I thought it would be fun to stick one of the scratchers I got in one of the pockets. I also included the card that came with flowers sent from Joe’s parents, a quote card and some photos from the fun week.

Thanks for taking a look. I am planning on rolling with this project. Doing some weeks as 2 page layouts, some as 1 page layouts. As long as I’m sticking with it I will be happy. I will post week 2 soon, I started in June and seeing as it’s October I have 20 weeks already done.

I love this project!
