project life 2014 : weeks 41 – 42

October 29, 2014

Here is my Project Life spread from October 6 -19. It has a hint of fall to it (even though we are still nearing 90 degrees daily, but let’s not go there). I wanted to mark the season somehow, so I put a photo of our fall mantel right at the top center. The rest of the left-hand side is mostly updates on Liam. On the longer journaling card I wrote kind of an overview of the two weeks. On the right-hand side are a few pictures from our trip to the pumpkin patch, and a few everyday photos. I have fun making my own filler cards when needed, but I usually end up doing something super simple like this,…

the project life app : a detailed review

October 22, 2014

Y’all know how much I love Project Life if you’ve been reading for any length of time. Well, if you haven’t heard – there is now a Project Life app! It’s $2.99 for iPhone and iPad. At first I wasn’t sure that I would really use it. After all, I like to have a physical album. But in the end I couldn’t resist purchasing it, and today I want to give you the lowdown on what it’s actually like and ideas for using it. Let’s go screen by screen to see what it does! When you first open the app, you have the choice to watch an intro video or not. Later, the video doesn’t open but you can find…

project life 2014 : weeks 39 – 40

October 15, 2014

Yay! Another spread that I am happy with. I’m still culling my photos so that I have more white space and journaling in each spread, and I’m loving it. I’ve also been using the Project Life app to plan and it is helping immensely! Next week I’m going to have a comprehensive look at it for you guys. On the left side we have a picture and story from my first 10k, a couple books I read, a classic #toddlerfashion, and just a plain ol’ cute pic of Liam and a pretty sky. I liked typing up some of my journaling in PSE this time. On the right side: the kids playing outside, at the toy store, journaling about our anniversary…

project life 2014 : weeks 37 – 38

October 1, 2014

With this Project Life spread I feel like I’m back in the groove and inspired again. I love the way it turned out. As mentioned in my last update, I haven’t been happy with my spreads lately, and I realized the reason was because I was trying to cram too many photos in. It ended up feeling busy and chaotic with very little room for journaling or white space. I thought about going to weekly spreads, but decided against it for this year. The answer for me right now is to simply include less photos. I had been putting in almost every single cute pic of my kids just because it was hard not to. But I realized that I…

project life 2014 : weeks 35 – 36

September 17, 2014

Kind of a funny story about this spread. I thought it would be fun to make a video of me putting the entire thing together from start to finish. Problem: my only camera is my iPhone. But I get these ideas in my head and I can’t relax until I figure out a way to execute them. Picture me on Saturday afternoon during precious naptime rigging up an elaborate harness using yarn and thumb tacks in order to hang my iPhone from the ceiling. I was climbing on the table and moving furniture. Positioning my supplies just so. I finally got it figured out and went to work. I didn’t give any thought to the spread beforehand, so there was…
