Project Life 2012 | Week Forty-Six

Welcome to Project Life 2012 | Week Forty-Six.

This week I’m thankful for this project.

Realistically I’m thankful for it every week, but as I put the last two weeks together yesterday I was reminded again about the power in making life visible to ourselves through memory keeping. There is nothing quite like reflecting our own lives back to ourselves and making sense of things through the combination of photos and words.

Thanks Becky.

Short email from Notes For The Universe – man they have been right on lately.

Insert is a 6×12 page protector cut down to fit this piece of art Anna brought home from school.

Enlarged photo on the back (a rainbow on the Pacific ocean).

“Love This Story” stamp is from my Life Banners set.

    I’m always amazed at how you bring things together – just look at that photo of Anna in the bath that echo’s her art from school. The red stripes that repeats, the way the ” love this story” banner seems to flow out of the photo next to it…Just don’t know how you do it.

      I knew something was grabbing my heart — and I just caught it — the grey card peeking out behind the “counting my blessings” card … it just really shows how the emotions from one week, do not go away just because the layout changes. I am really inspired by this one – a few of my weeks are blending like this. Don’t know if this was wholly intentional, but something says it was.

    What a special week! Love your words as much as your photos! PS How do you get a letter from the Universe? I am also riding the roller coaster, alternating from hands in the air to white knuckling the bars :) …I may need some cosmic tips too!

    Looks like a great week! I bet the Twilight marathon was awesome! I so want to watch them all now that they’re out! The letter from the universe looks rather interesting too

    Wow, perfect way to say what I’ve been feeling about this lately…”making life visible to ourselves”. Love that, thank you. Giving me power to live more fully, appreciate more intensely, and change more inTENTly…because of the increased self-awareness that the reflection brings.
