my project life process

April 21, 2014

I wanted to share with you the exact process I go through when putting together my Project Life spreads, including the time frames. This way you can see that it’s totally doable! I put together this particular spread completely while in sole charge of the kids, so I didn’t even need dedicated alone time. Sunday – end of the week : sometimes I won’t get started until the following weekend, but I didn’t expect to take more pictures and we were staying home from church recovering from sickness so I got started. 10:30am : I create an album in my photos on my iPhone which is my only camera. I put all the photos from the time period in it…

project life 2014 : weeks 13 – 14

April 14, 2014

This spread is from March 24 to April 6. It was my first week back at work, and the week Liam was in the hospital. Lots of photos here. Mostly people. I love that, but I think I would also like more pictures of our environment – the rooms we spend time in, our neighborhood, etc. I like seeing that stuff when I look back, so I’ll work on that. Those pictures with Meredith and her Pappy (David’s grandfather) are especially sweet because he just had a stroke last week. He is still okay, but lost his language, some strength, and fine motor skills. Week in review cards are still awesome. As is journaling on vellum! When I was putting…

project life 2014 : weeks 11 – 12

April 7, 2014

We are on the mend in our house, worn out but trying to get back to normal. Liam is still a bit sick but is definitely over the hump. I have a very sore throat but so far nothing worse than that. Our dog is still crazy but we are managing it. So moving on! With this I am caught up with Project Life posting! From now on I should post each spread every two weeks, approximately a week later.┬áThis is from March 10-23. The first week was when my best friend Becca was in town, and the second week was my last before returning to work. I used the photo from my spring goals post, and just added the…

project life 2014 : weeks 9 – 10

March 31, 2014

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you might know that we are dealing with some serious dog anxiety problems, and as a result I haven’t had good sleep in almost a month. Last night was the worst because Liam is also super congested right now. So today I have crazy eyes but am powering through. There was some good over the weekend though; I was able to do some Project Life and sewing, it was gorgeous outside so I got some running in and we cleaned out our garage. Did lots of cuddling and cooking too. So despite the lack of sleep I do feel ready for another week! I’m almost caught up on posting my Project Life…

project life 2014 : weeks 7-8

March 22, 2014

I’m so close to being caught up with these posts! Bear with me and then I’ll only have them for you every couple of weeks. :) This one is from February 10 – 23. I had to include that handmade Valentine’s card that Meredith brought home from school. I’m sure she didn’t really make it herself but she probably helped, and it was too cute. I wasn’t sure how to put it in since it was an odd size, and I wanted to be able to pull it out and open it easily. After much thought I decided to attempt to sew a custom sized page protector from an 8.5×11 and it was actually really easy! I hadn’t touched my…
