PROJECT OBSERVATIONS | One thing I haven't really focused on this year is the collection of stuff. For me that usually translates to receipts, written notes, grocery lists, etc. I've been grabbing a few here and there but not nearly in the same quantity as in the past. I'm totally fine with that. I've loved having the stuff component in the past. This year I might just use my email archives and include some of those snippets if I need filler content when it comes to filling the divided page protectors.

    So inspiring as always Ali. Do you think you're using less stuff this week because you've included so much of that in your Project Life album throughout the year? Just curious.

      I do think that's part of the reason why. I'm also just home more - less out and about (which is one of the big ways I acquire stuff).

    Loved the pictures and seeing Anna thru her day and her cute little dress. So happy to Simon on his bike and looking so happy and proud riding it. The ones of Chris and Simon are always sweet. What a beautiful bed you have and love the #4 pillow.

    I'm not collecting stuff for this either, so much of that has been going into my PL so I'm not worried about it. Have to say thank you for those download worksheets, they are helping me so much track my day and thinking of the thoughts one during the day. I will include these in my album.
    Happy Thursday everyone keep up the fun we are almost to the end.

    What is the name of the paint on your bedroom walls? I love it! It's just the perfect colour for what I am looking for.

    So a non-scrapbooking question....before I upgrade to the new Mac OS. Are you still having trouble getting your scanner to work properly with your computer?

      Yes but I haven't tried again - the response I'm getting is that the system doesn't support Power PC anymore. Will be working on that today.

    Love the picture of Anna wearing the cape. I would love to have a picture of me with my red towel cape pretending to be wonder woman when I was little. I started my week on Saturday and i can't believe it's almost over. Even on the days I couldn't think of anything to photograph-when I looked a little closer I found more. I love WITL! Thank you so much!

    You've captured so many great moments of your family Ali. That little Anna of yours is so, so precious. It's been interesting to see everyone wearing long sleeves with your mild Oregon weather this week. In contrast, our summer has been so hot here in Missouri that my son rarely wore a shirt last week when I captured our Week in the Life.

    You have such amazing light in your home. Are you shooting most of those indoor shots with your 50mm 1.4 lens (wide open at 1.4). I played around a lot last week with indoor natural light and had to up my ISO to as much as 6400 to get a good exposure with my 2.8 lens, and am thinking that a couple more f-stops would make a big difference.

      My 50mm is broken - I'm using only a 24-70 (2.8). Every once in awhile I need to got that high with my ISO - but really I've been keeping it right around 400. Outside I've pretty much been doing 100. My photos are far from technically perfect - but they are capturing our days.

    Great photos! My almost-2 daughter has the same boots as Anna. She wears them to go into the "jungle." (Our dining room.) Love this project Ali!

    Love your Wednesday photos, very inspiring. You can see my Wednesday pictures at www.scrapflicka.blogspot.com.
    I am really enjoy my first WITL project and find your pdf sheets very useful to remember what the days look like. I've had a crazy Thursday so far, trying to pack for a two week stay at my father in laws and didn't have time to take as many photos as I wanted but I'll just have to snap a few more tonight when we get there. Thanks for sharing and inspiring us!

    Ali - where did you get your chalkboard, we could use one of those in my daughter's room! Love the dailies, really enjoying this, so glad I'm a part of it - THANKYOU for inspiring my creativity this week!

      It's actually chalkboard paint. We painted it on there last year (there's magnetic paint underneath - which isn't really strong enough). You can find chalkboard paint at hardware stores.

    Love seeing your pictures. Love your blackboard if I had one i think I would be standing there all day doodling :) Love seeing Simon off on his own riding that bike! My week in the life is almost over :( As I had started on Saturday but I have loved ever minute of this journey. I might do this own my own again the week before school starts. Thank you so much for all your inspiration shared.

    Hi Ali, your pictures are great! My son has those same green boots and wants to wear them all the time. I caught a picture of him in them on Tuesday. This is my first time doing a WITL and it's been great! Thanks.
