Still struggling to post more than once a week. It’s safe to say we are in the busy season of summer…AND I am making a really disciplined effort to get to the gym. (It takes up soooo much time!) Here is week eighteen of my 2013 album.
What we were up to this week: This week was considerably more low-key than the week before. After the glorious spring weekend we had during week seventeen it turned into winter again on Monday–even snowing May 1st and 2nd. Honestly….it was a bit depressing. Couple that with Marie not feeling well, me not getting any rest, and it’s no wonder I napped not once but twice over the weekend. Definitely a tough week all around.
Techniques used this week: Lots of recoloring, lots of brushes per my usual. Instead of doing a traditional two week spread, I used “side B” to detail my day in the life on April 30th. I probably should have done an insert like I did for January’s day in the life (as now I have photos left over anyway for one) but at this point I am not going to redo it. Lesson learned for me–I like my two page layouts for the week much better!!
Other thoughts: I really am in a rhythm with this whole Project Life thing. It’s now been 70 weeks straight and honestly it doesn’t feel like it takes up any time at all. (Creating blog posts is by far the most consuming part believe it or not!) Everyone is used to me always having a camera, everyone is always on the lookout for stuff “for the book,” it truly becomes very much a part of our life. I was describing it to a friend the other day and said it really acts (at least in my home) as an interactive photo album. Can I just say, again, that it is the coolest thing I have ever done?! Still blows my mind, after all of this time, that I never gave up or became disenchanted. I get disenchanted with projects so easily….
Supplies used this week: Most of the items are listed in the icons below.
