Save The Date | Week In The Life 2011

Save the date for Week In The Life 2011 : July 25th through July 31st.

This year I've decided to document a week in our lives during the summer. Why? A look at what our lives look like in the summer months will be a really nice way to round out my Week In The Life album collections.

It's likely that I'll have a new design for the album this year - still in the 8.5x11 format.

I know one of the questions that people will have is what's the difference between this project and Project Life and will I be doing both? I will be doing both. The main difference for me is that Week In The Life is much more in-depth over the course of seven days. I do at least a full two+ page spread for each day with much more detailed journaling. My plan is to keep on doing Project Life like I am right now - little bits over the course of the week. It's likely that the photos might be repeats and I'm totally fine with that.

Read all about this project from both 2008 and 2010 here: Week In The Life.

Consider yourself invited!

    That gives me a couple more months to finish last years! It will be winter here in Australia, so will think about following along. I need to be more disciplined in actually getting it finished! Enjoy your holiday.

    Cool, Ali! :) I had already decided to do "Week in the Life" this year, and now it's actually on the week of my birthday -- July 31. :) I would like to prep ahead of time too, so I will be watching to see what suggestions you have for that. :)

    Hey Ali, I really truly love your blog and projects section it is a daily inspiration for me. I have loved observing your current years Project Life however living in Australia, I find the page protectors and some of the cool product (which really makes/finshes the project) hard to obtain eg: Project Life from Amazon could not be shipped here and some of the other products double in cost with postage from America so I was wondering if you are able to point me in the right direction in obtaining just as cool stuff or the same here in Australia??? Thanks Tania.

    I found this project last year a bit after the fact and did a "week in the life" last Mother's Day week. I LOVE the resulting album. Imperfect for sure but a wonderful record of the random happenings that week. This year I was going to do Mother's Day week again but think I'll wait a few weeks till summer when we'll have a new baby to photograph! Thanks for the inspiration.

    I just stopped by to see if you were gearing up for a Week in the Life and saw this post announcing the date. I'm so excited you picked a week in July, as I enjoyed last year's project so much (my first time) but I remember thinking, "but I'm not sure I want to document the same week every year?". Of course I could do it any time on my own but it's so much more fun to do it along with you and your readers. So thanks for reading my mind, count me in, I'm marking my calendar right now! Of

    Last year was my first time taking part in this project and I remember thinking I'd love to do it again but I wasn't sure I'd want to document the same week every year. Of course, I could do it myself any week I choose but it's so much fun to play along with you and your readers. So thanks for reading my mind and choosing a week in July, count me in!
