Welcome to week #9. I’m starting to sound repetitive, but I do really love this project!
This week my sewing machine is being fixed and cleaned, as well as my computer (with my digital elements) is being looked at. But that’s ok, I just used what I had in my stash and another week is documented. I use the Clementine core kit and really enjoy how it mixes well with other journaling tags that I tend to collect.
I knew ahead of time that my machines were getting fixed and that I had a week full of appointments, engagements (Wicked), and a lost dog. So my only goal for this week was to get it finished and to have more journaling/story than some of the prior weeks. And keeping it simple really lends itself to more space for journaling. I really like that.
Here’s the layout exactly how it looks in my album:
My love affair with my weekly letter to my kids, paper clips, instagram pictures, and movie signs/tickets continues.
I included one of the 4 x 6 flip protectors that I often used in my 2011 album. It allows me to add additional pictures and/or journaling. This is a perfect option if you want to have the story journaled, but not necessarily share with others.
I included 2 pictures and journaling of our family’s experience with transitioning to healthier food choices. You can read about that here.
Another way to add more story or journaling is to use the foldable cards. In this spread I used a 2 x 3 picture of Ben playing baseball that opens up to the journaling of his 1st baseball game of the season.
Another highlight of our week was Jeff treating the kids and I to dinner at Oreganos followed by great seats to see Wicked. I’m working hard to complete 39 things on my life list before I turn 39. You can see my 39 list here.
Hard to believe that 9 weeks of 2012 is already behind us. Let’s make it a great 43 more weeks.
To see my first eight weeks of Project Life 2012 (and some from 2011),go here.
Blessings sweet friends – Jenny
