Join In : A Week In The Life


[ from 2005 ]

From 2005 through 2007 I taught a class at Creating Keepsakes University called A Week In The Life (the project is also highlighted in my book Life Artist). These were album classes that focus on documenting everyday details over the course of seven consecutive days. The albums themselves are definitely up there on my list of favorites.

Even though I am not teaching the class any more I want to do the project again.

Things in my life are much different right now than they were a year ago. I want to make sure I capture some of those little things - the way things look in our house, how I am feeling, our growing family (and the last few months of life as just 3), what Simon is up to, etc.

Consider yourself invited to play along. Next week will be content gathering week. From Monday through Sunday I will be using my camera and gathering "bits of life" to add to my album. The following week I will be putting the album together using supplies I have on hand.

Look for more details to come tomorrow including the categories I will be using and a list of photos to consider as you go through the week.


I also wanted to take a minute today and welcome my newest sponsors: Clickin Moms, A Million Memories, Stampin With Steph (Stampin Up), and

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor send me an email for more information.

    I'm in - had a slow day Monday, but am concentrating more on this today. It is a great exercise.

    This is so much more difficult (and fun) than I expected. I'm posting my rough version on my blog
    I think next week I'm going to do the opposite, and try to tell the day's story in a single pic and few words.

    Wow!!! What a cool project - I just stumbled on here - I wish I had sooner - I would have loved to have taken part in this group project - Maybe I will just have to embark on a project like this solo...

    I finally finished this project-was putting it off in favor of doing more decorative LOs....this one was deep in content, and very therapeutic to finish. Thank you for a great project idea. You can find my mini album here:
