As I enter the busiest time of my working year I have this crazy thing happen where I want to work on all my projects even the ones without deadlines. Hence, a Project Life® spread to share with you. It's been awhile, I know. Thanks for being patient with me through my health issues, merging households, and lots of behind the blog work on product design/development and class content.
Today I'm sharing Week Nineteen which was the week I did Week In The Life™ this year (May 9th through the 15th).
As I stood at my work table and contemplated what I wanted to do for the 3x4 pockets (all my 4x6 photos with the Week In The Life™ Messy Circles Filled 2016 word art were printed out months ago) I decided to just add "filler" cards vs. specific journaling. I came to this conclusion after pulling my Week In The Life™ album off my shelf and seeing how detailed I was with that week already. I still want this week included in my chronological Project Life® album but I don't need to re-tell the entire story of the week. Obviously I could have printed out more photos for those pockets but again, I feel like I covered that in my main album. So I went with fun filler cards from my stash.
I think next year I'd like to try to remember to collect more "stuff" during my Week In The Life™ documentation that can be included in my Project Life® during that week (planning for sometime in the spring again). It would be cool to have all the pockets filled with receipts or things cut up from the stuff of life.
The lesson here is flexibility within whatever storytelling system you are working right now. And that some weeks are detailed and some are not and some are all photos and all these weeks add up to one big awesome story.
Here's how the spread turned out:
The circles on top of each 4x6 photo were added digitally to my photos before printing and came from this digital set: Week In The Life™ Messy Circles Filled 2016. I just picked photos I liked from that week - no other specific reason. Again, my goal is to fill up the pockets.
The fun "Here We Go" card is a pad that was included in the Drive Story Kit™. On it I wrote how I felt like I covered this story in my Week In The Life™ album and referenced the insert for a longer story about what was happening in life during this time period.
"Here's to us" is from the Here's To Us Journal Card Set.
The "PS I Love You" and "Take A Picture" cards are from past Studio Calico kits.
"We were here" and the floral 3x4 card are both from past Studio Calico kits. "Every Day Looks Like This" is also from the retired Hello Happy Journal Card Set.
