Week 39 was the week I finally hit that point that many Project Lifers find themselves at: the week where you just didn't really take pictures. All the photos here are from the Saturday of the week. I'd been sewing in anticipation of BlytheCon UK most of that week (I did take a photo, but hadn't printed it and frankly didn't feel like going back to do so) and we'd both just been wrapped up in living life rather than documenting it. And that's totally ok.
I took advantage of the change of approach and mixed it up a bunch with supplies: BH Seafoam, BH Jade, & a Studio Calico cards all made up the mix. A few BH arrow stickers helped me write about what we actually did during the week, and some tweets (I've been a big fan of using these in my catching up phase) helped tell the story of our flatwarming party.
The following week we headed to Scotland for time with family & friends and wrapping the week up with BlytheCon UK 2013.
A lot happened that week, but I just added one insert page (cut down to make a 3-up 4x6 panel). For the most part, I let the pictures do the talking, though I did add a bit of journaling. The pages were mostly made up of BH Seafoam, with a BH Honey thrown in for good measure, along with the "♥ this" card I cut on my Silhouette using an Ali Edwards file. This is the only week of the 3 I'm sharing where I used some Martha Stewart labels, which is pretty shocking as they're my usual go-to! Instead of writing a title for the BlythCon UK photos, I attached the button badge I received as an attendee to my journaling card on the righthand page & really enjoy how it turned out.
Week 41 was another week a little low on photos. After all the excitement and busybusybusy of the previous week, we both just chilled out a lot that week! I again looked to BH Honey to add some new cards to the mix of BH Seafoam and also included one Studio Calico card (supporting the ephemera & journaling from the textile show I attended). A bit of washi and a bunch of tweets helped to pretty things up and tell about what we were up to. A bit of a slow week, but it ended with a giant new tv, so that must be good!
It's such a great feeling to be done with my catch-up pile. I hope to finish up the weeks that I'm still not quite up-to-date with this week, so that from next week forward I'll be back on track to just be offset by a week with my pages. I quite like it that way and find I am better about adding/writing about the little things then.
I'm already starting to think about how I'll be approaching Project Life in 2014. Will you be continuing with PL next year or if you haven't ever tried it, would you like to give it a shot?
I'll be sharing this at The Mom Creative for Project Life Tuesday.
