Project Life | Week Eighteen

Welcome to Project Life | Week Eighteen.

It was a quiet, very normal week around our house.

Chris is in the middle of the legislative session right now which means he's in Salem a lot - that makes it even more quiet. This cold has slowed me down - except for a couple deadlines I needed to tackle.

There happens to be lots of green this week.

The top right "love + thanks" came with something I ordered from Kal Barteski.

The bottom left is some of Anna's finger painting.

I've been meaning to take a photo of our dog Lily in her spot on the stairs for weeks. Finally got it.

I included a screenshot of my mail program with an email. Both Kim and Katie are awesome about sending me photos or little updates during the day.

I accidentally printed a little version of this layout on my black and white laser printer. Totally random but it fit perfectly into the pocket.

The little horoscope pieces came from a Serena & Lily catalog. As I was looking at it I was struck by the fact that everyone in our house is either a Scorpio (Chris and I) or an Aquarius (Simon and Anna). A fun little something to add.

I'm thinking that maybe I'll do a whole week on what's happening in our yard/garden right now. I love that so many things will be different in a few short months.

UPDATE | While I was cleaning up the kitchen tonight I found Simon's Mother's Day note to me. I love that he conveniently wrote it on half a piece of 12x12 cardstock. Smart pants. Nothing on the back right now - I'll find something to add later.

Project Life is a product created by Becky Higgins. It can be anything you want it to be. The album kit (similar to the one I’m using) is available for purchase through Amazon. If you live outside the US check Becky’s site for more information on sources. View all my posts about Project Life here.

    Please could someone explain what Project Life is? I always use 8 1/2 x 11 & A4 sized printfile sleeves for my pix. Could I do project life with these or would I need to buy the kit?

    Is there a website where I can find out more about it?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    By the way Ali, your ideas are brilliant:)

      Hi Julie - here's a link to Becky Higgins who was the creator of this kit: (it's also linked at the bottom of the post). You could definitely do Project Life with what you have on hand vs. purchasing a kit.

    Hi Ali,

    I was wondering how you liked the Canon Selphy printer. Do you like the quality of your pictures when you print and do you think this will help me get those pictures printed for Project Life?
    What is your recommendation on this product.

    Thank you for your help,

      Thanks Ali for the quick reply. I respect your opinion.

      Hi Monika - I ended up giving it away. The main reason I didn't like it is that the prints are not 4x6 (they are a bit smaller). You can't use different paper in the printer because it is a combo ink/paper cartridge.
