Welcome to Project Life | Weeks Thirty-Nine, Forty, and Forty-One
NOTE: Both the Turquoise and the Amber editions of Project Life are back in stock at Amazon. These were the new designs that debuted late last year - there are new designs coming out next month as well. You can see all the options on Becky's site.
Today's post includes three weeks of Project Life, including two weeks put together by my Mom and Katie while I was traveling in Italy.
It's likely that I'll include a couple things about my trip into Project Life but I wanted to show you what it looks like without it first (see what my Mom did, etc). I imagine that I'll just add in a note and a couple photos - maybe a half-page insert with some of my favorite photos and maybe some information about the logistics and experience. I've got a separate project going for the rest of my trip documentation.
Let's start with Week Thirty-Nine (this was the week right before I left):
First off, I love this. I love that my Mom and Katie collaborated to make sure these pockets were filled with photos and bits of life while I was away.
My parents took the kids down to the beach the first weekend I was away so my Mom included a full second page protector to accommodate the photos and stories.
I love, love, love having her handwriting in here.
What I really love though is that they took the time to do this while they were here. I came home to photos printed and all the content stuffed into the pockets. I know my Mom tried working my printer here at home but ended up with a couple trips to Costco for the 4x6 prints. Love you for doing that Mom. She even rounded all the corners.
You'll notice as you look at this week that there's a few blank spots.
I'm thinking I'll use those spaces to include some Italy photos or words about where I was during this time.
This list cracks me up. It's a great idea to include something so simple, so everyday.
A little bit of the schedule.
My Dad did some awesome pruning around the yard. Super thankful for that too.
I also love that my Mom got on the internet and downloaded some of the information for the local corn maze - they visited a couple times.
These couple weeks put together while I was away could end up being some of my favorites of the entire year down the road. It's a special addition - so cool to have a bit of their perspective and memories included.
