Welcome to Katie’s Project Life 2013 | Week 7.
I had a bad head cold this week so I didn’t take very many pictures, and i’m okay with that. I still had many stories to tell.
I spent several days this week on the couch trying to rest and get better, and in the mean time I watched the whole first season + some of the second season of Downton Abbey. So fun! Peter and I are all the way caught up, and we weren’t too happy with how that Season 3 finale ended!
Both the banner and the heart on top of the photos are from Ali’s new Outline 3×4 Journal Cards. They both had frames around the whole picture, but I didn’t size them quite right and I had to cut them off. I’m still playing catch up, so It didn’t matter to me that it wasn’t perfect, just that it got done and put in the pocket.
We went and saw Silver Linings Playbook, my second time, Peter’s first. The dance scene in that movie is so fantastic. It always puts a huge smile on my face.
The quote on kraft paper is a little treasure I found at a local gift shop, there was no name on it of who it was made by.
I loved the quote though so I had to include it:
“Our life is frittered away by detail…
SIMPLIFY, SIMPLIFY, SIMPLIFY!
Simplicity of life and elevation of purpose.”
-Henry David Thoreau
IDEA | Journal right over the top of a photo using an American Crafts Precision Pen. The image is still visible but the journaling is highlighted, not the details of the photo.
I really wanted to include a photo of the lunch we had at Anna’s school the day we went and celebrated her birthday. Having lunch there is so fun and adorable. Mac and Cheese + bread and butter + veggies. Love it.
