Mark Your Calendar: Week In The Life 2010


Just wanted to let you know in advance that I am planning to do another round of my WEEK IN THE LIFE project this year from April 19th through the 25th. Much more info to come as the date gets closer.

For more information on this project in the past go here: Week In The Life.

    Fun! Looking forward to it! Love that it is a different time of year than the last one I did in the fall a couple years ago!

    The page protectors you use in the Project Life, I know you said you got them from the Becky Higgins kit, but can you find them anywhere else?

    Holly said…

    Too Cool, I was thinking just today that it’s time for another round of Week in the Life project and was going to invite my sister to join me.
    The last one I did was perfect timing because the next month I moved to another place…smiling.

    Melissa said…

    excellent! That is my week off from school so I will be able to play along easily :-)

  • 8.
    Jerrie said…

    Yay! I wanted to do this again but never motivated myself. It’s fun to do it knowing others are out there doing it as well! :)

    Leanne said…

    REALLY Looking forward to this again, Ali! My 2008 week is probably one of my favorite albums!! Thanks for starting us off again!

    Lisa Carroll said…

    I totally need to do this again, especially since we are getting ready to move soon. I am thinking I need to move it up though, maybe next week….

    Melissa Mann said…

    yay!!!! I’ll be marking it down for sure!

    I was looking through your Week In The Life posts just last weekend. I’m thinking about doing one the week of March 15th (Spring Break). I know it won’t be a “typical” week but since we aren’t traveling or have much planned other than playing I thought it would be fun to document the week.

    Dori said…

    Oh, Ali, my favorite album of all time is my WITL from Oct. 08 that just happened to coincide with my trip to CO to welcome my son home from Iraq. That album will always have a special place in my heart. I’m so ready to do another! :-)

    Becky said…

    they almost look like baseball card holders – I wonder if those would be big enough for a project like this

  • 19.
    Michelle said…

    Thank you sooooo much for the advance notice. This is so awesome! I did P365 last year but did not have it in me to do this year—I decided WITL would be my one major photo “project” for 2010 and I am so glad you still have it planned. It motivates me like you wouldn’t believe! (well, I guess you would believe it.haha) Thanks, Ali, it’s on my calendar! My 2008 WITL album is my favorite album of all time. Love this project.

  • 20.
    mary said…

    that will be perfect because I’m considering the picture spring class @ BPS so I will be taking lots of photos anyway. Thanks for the heads up. Being empty nested, I’ve never done this with you but think I will this time. It will be fun.

  • 21.
    Joy Buss said…

    Yeah!!! Can’t tell you how excited I am that you are doing this. It TOTALLY motivates me to do this and it is a project I love! Can’t wait …:-)

    Els Kooi said…

    Great, I loved doing the December Daily last winter. I can’t wait to try this project.

  • 23.
    Cilenia said…

    I am SO excited to do this along with you this year!!! I have never done a WITL before and have been waiting to do it with my friends along with you. Count us in!!! And thank you for leading such a wonderful project!!!

    I’m looking forward to it as I would like to do this for a week this summer.

  • 25.
    Tiffani said…

    Fun! Can’t wait to see yours.
    This time perhaps I will assemble the album from last time instead of starting over with more pictures! ha ha!

  • 26.
    Kristyn G said…

    Yay!! I am looking forward to playing along again this year! I love my 2008 WIL.

    Melanie said…

    I can’t wait. I couldn’t do the 25 days of Christmas because we were in the middle of a huge move so I have been waiting for this.

  • 28.
    Kimberly Minyard said…

    okay I am going to try this out. I am thinking of doing it the week of march 29-april 4. This week is my daughters birthday as well as easter. Do you think it would be more meaning full to do it on a normal week with nothing else going on ?? looking for info. I did your book idea for december and really enjoyed it.

    Im so going to do this, what a great idea……

  • 31.
    Jana said…

    Great idea Tiffani! I think I’ll do the same – this way I can follow along & have my photos developed ahead of time!

  • 32.
    KimD said…

    That is so funny as I was thinking about doing another “week” this month sometime. (I’ve noticed I haven’t been taking very many pictures lately and that really gets me clicking!) I did one on my own last October so am excited you’re planning one right around the corner. I’ll definitely hold off and do it with everyone else April 19th. Thanks for letting us know in advance…

  • 33.

    I have never participated in doing your week in the life. Can I make digital pages for this project or do they have to be made the traditional way. I truly am looking forward to playing with all of you.

    Sara M said…

    I took your Week in the Life class at CKU-Albums, in Chicago.
    I was just looking through it the other day. I have to say it is my favorite album I have ever done. At the time, I had a little girl in diapers, another one in preschool and life was busy. Now I have 3 little girls instead of 2, my preschool daughter is a 3rd grader and my baby in diapers is in kindergarten.
    Honestly, I get teary eyed every time I look at this album. Life goes way too fast. Stopping to notice the everyday stuff is the only way I know to slow it down a little.
    Thanks Ali!

    Can’t wait!!

  • 36.

    Oh fun!!!
    I’ll be on board for this one. Yay!!

    I think I’ll join you this time. My son’s third birthday falls in April.

    Nicole said…

    Would you mind sharing the “Week in the Life” button to add to our blogs? Definitely plan on playing along, and I’d love everyone that sees my blog to see it and think about playing along too!

    Judy said…

    Hi Ali,
    I have never done anything like this before, but was thinking about doing something similar. I am so glad I stumbled on this. I don’t have a fancy camera and am not really a good photo person. But I would like to give it a shot. I guess it doesn’t start til April. I finally understood that this is something you’ve done in the past and the links were from that time. Thanks for sharing.

    considering … considering …
    want to see if it fits in without interfering my other creative priorities. Still, it IS only one week and if I can get it DONE within that week, then it shouldn’t interfere.
    … just stream-of-conciousness-thinking there.

    Debbie said…

    I was wondering the same thing. Would it work to run a stitch vertically down each of the 4×6 spots on a 12×12 divided page protectors. Or use a 4×6 background paper but attach 2 elements to it as if it were divided???

  • 42.
    Ali Edwards said…

    Sure Nicole! I will add some info in my next post.

  • 43.
    Szabina said…

    I think I’ll join you this time. My birthday will be on those week :) I can’t wait :) )

  • 44.

    I’ve never heard of this project before, so I am uber excited to jump in!
    Thanks for creating and posting :)

    How would this work as a travel album? Im going on a cruise in May for 21 days (so it would be 3 weeks in the life, so to speak) to Dubai, Oman, Jordan and Egypt. I thought this format might be an interesting way to document the trip.

    I am super excited, thanks for letting us know! :)

    Danielle said…

    I am so excited that you will be doing this again! The last Week in the Life books I did is one of my favorites and I’m excited to see how life has changed!

    i do not think you need a good camera. I took all of my vacation photos on my IPhone. It did great for lots of things. YOU have to think about what is interesting, ordinary, everyday. Just start taking the pictures.

  • 49.
    radish said…

    I am taking some classes during the same time. But I am reading up and looking at examples of past years and am taking a ton of photos this week.

    I think it would be great! Those pocket pages are so great for collecting bits of this and that along the way. Sounds like an awesome adventure.
