Welcome to Project Life® 2014 | Week Seven (February 10th through February 16th).
One of the things I've been doing recently, and some of you have commented on (thank you), is adding some ACTION ITEMS/IDEAS at the end of my posts before the supply lists. Make sure to check them out for some quick take-aways, ideas or things to think about related to memory keeping and documentation.
This was the week of Anna's actual birthday (vs. when she had her party) and she ended up going up to Seattle with my Mom for a few days and getting to pick out her first American Girl doll from the store up there. It was definitely a treat for the two of them to go together. I'll most likely be making a layout using more of the photos my Mom took on that adventure.
That big 5 is from Me And My Big Ideas - Silver Glitter Uppercase.
This week is light on words and I'm okay with that from time to time.
- Copy and paste a short email into a 3x4 card or print out a longer one and include that as an insert or in a 4x6 pocket. Emails are a great way to include another person's voice.
- Play with photo perspective the next time you grab your camera. Do everything you can to stop yourself from shooting at your normal eye level - look down, get down, set your camera on the table or the ground, etc.
- Pick one card this week to play around with a stencil and mist/spray ink.
- Put a card in front of your kids, partner, spouse, friend, etc and ask them to write down something from their week (or something that's on their mind). It's another opportunity to invite another voice into this project.
