Project Life. Continue to love this project, but the last 2 weeks I’ve waited to do it all at once, and I am not a fan of the “all at once” process.
It feels rushed. Don’t get me wrong, I’m thrilled with it now, and just spent 5 minutes looking through it with Samantha. But I am really wanting to enjoy it more, than just trying to get something checked off my to do list. I want to soak it in a bit more.
So tomorrow after Sam’s surgery, I plan on working on this week’s pages. I’m really looking forward to spending smaller bursts of time on the project during the week. I’ll give you an update next week.
When I look back at this past week, I’m beyond grateful. This past week has been exciting, scary, and humbling. I’ve received many emails from people writing their lists, needing advice on how to overcome fears, and women who have lost their identity in their journey as wives and moms. And I’ve been doing A LOT of writing. I never imagined this and am just grateful today.
For those who didn’t see my video, I sent a video to Ellen. You can see that here. And no I haven’t heard, but I just know I will. I believe.
Loving that I started working with a hot air balloon crew in hopes that I will take my first flight within the next 4-6 weeks.
Continue to love adding fabric and stitching in my albums. Just gives it a homemade feel that I love.
Love that smile, those yellow boots on the wrong feet, and that note from Emily. Awesome.
Loving printing off my instagram photos sized 2 x 2 and then using my square punch (that is slightly larger) and creating a small white border around the pictures.
My additional inserts this week include a copy of the video that I sent to Ellen, 2 pages from my Smash Journal (back to back) with journaling about the excitement of the past week, and a letter to my children (ran out of light).
Want to see more? I have added a Project Life inspiration page that will hold all of my Project Life Posts. You can go here or in future click the “Project Life” in the top navigation bar or on the right navigation bar to see my posts for Weeks 1 through 5 as well as for some posts from 2011.
And if you are feeling overwhelmed with Project Life (or feeling like you want something more simple) and you are already getting behind, read my posts on Lessons Learned with Project Life here . I have been amazed how that post spoke to people.
Project Life is a simple scrapbooking solution to preserving your memories and documenting your stories. It was designed by Becky Higgins and you can find more information here.
