Welcome to Project Life 2012 | Week Four.
Playing catch-up the last few days as I get back into the swing of everyday life after attending CHA.
As I was working on my week I was remembering how I’m not trying to tell “every” story in this project. Sometimes I scratch the surface and sometimes I tell longer stories. And sometimes, as I found out, I can focus on a theme.
A big thing that definitely came up this past week was an overall theme of adventure. Anna got her first library card (hello adventure), Chris took the kids sledding (hello adventure), I traveled to Anaheim (hello adventure). It was actually a new way for me to look at documenting the week as a whole – choosing a specific theme to emphasize vs. focusing on the everyday stories.
I’d encourage you to try it one of these weeks. As you look back at the end of the week or as the week evolves, what seems to emerge as a theme for the week? I definitely found it a nice way to bring it all together today and it helped me solidify which stories I wanted to tell.
Here’s a look at Week Four:
The insert this week is an American Crafts 6×12 divided page protector.
I played around with my Silhouette and some new 4×6 sentiment boxes that will be available next week from Designer Digitals. I loved how the first set of 3×4 Hello Life Boxes worked as a “see-through” element and wanted that option for the 4×6 size.
I’ve also got two more sets of the 3×4 Hello Life Boxes: Volume 2 (months) and Volume 3 (available tomorrow – includes more words like he, she, you, us, etc).
I added an Avery Adhesive Clear Plastic Label along the outside.
You can also see where I’ve got a sticky note to add some journaling that’s coming from Chris about their adventures sledding this past weekend.
That photo on the bottom actually happened on Monday night. Most likely I’ll start this week with a photo or two from my Anaheim adventures.
