Project Life 2015: Week 44 Part 1

Week 44 went spectacularly out of control.  Lots of events that required lots of photos.  This is the week that really prompted me to rethink my plan for project life.  My project life has evolved from the straight forward one spread per week the first year, to mostly one spread but with a couple extra pages when needed last year, to huge explosions of pages this year.  I've been working on a plan for 2016.  I miss my simple summary pages of year one, but I don't want to cut photos out either.  I think I have my plan pretty much worked out.  I can't wait to see if it actually works!

Anyway, here is the first part of what ended up being a 10 page week (yikes!).  But as you will see, we had some pretty cool stuff going on...

Project Life 2015: Week 43

I don't normally post on a Saturday, but I'm trying to get caught up with PL pages so I can save room for posting DD pages once I get started.  I spent part of yesterday afternoon cutting cards apart for my project.  I'm excited.  I think I should have my post ready on Wednesday with my plan.  Just for kicks, I went back and read my plan for last year.  I thought I had it all figured out then and still failed miserably.  BUT this time I'm SURE I have it figured out :-)  I'm also excited to post about my PL plan for 2016.  I think I've just about got that figured out as well.

Here's week 43 (the first of a couple of multi spread weeks)...

Project Life 2015: Week 42

In case you're keeping tracking, yes, I did skip week 41.  That was the week I did A Week in the Life.  The official week was a few weeks earlier, but a group of us didn't attempt it then and picked a new week to try.  I have kind of decided that I should stop attempting AWITL.  I adore the project, but it doesn't work well for me.  Maybe it's another one of those projects that would work better for me if I didn't do project life, I don't know.  I always incorporate it into PL since it overlaps so much with that project.  But there would be something really cool about having a series of stand alone AWITL books.  Anyway, back to my week 41... basically, it's not done yet.  Eight pages are sitting there with photos on them and a day of the week card for each day.  And that's it.  I haven't touched them in weeks.  I didn't write down my journaling, so I'm sure I've forgotten it all by now.  Sigh.

On to week 42!  Ahhh... the week I had fall family fun planned for Monday when both kids had off from school and Jeff took the day off from work.  And where did my children choose for their day of fall fun?  Was it the pumpkin farm, the apple orchard, the dunes with friends from school???  Nope... Ikea.  Oh well... we had a fun day together and everyone was happy.  I guess that was the main point of our day together anyway.

Project Life 2015: Week 40

Still plugging along with posting, but I must admit that planning my December Daily (my take on it anyway) has completely taken over my brain.  If you have been reading for a while, you know that I have failed at DD every year.  BUT... THIS is MY year!!  I WILL be successful this year!  I'm working on my prep and will do a big post about my plan probably next week.  What makes this year different than previous years?  I own a color printer now.  I think that's going to make all of the difference in the world.

Reining it back in to project life, here is week 40...

Project Life 2015: Week 38

 Another set of pages with lots of Alex!

It's nice being reminded of weeks like this since he's pretty much absent from my latest pages.  I need to remember to sneak in more photos of him!  Thanksgiving is coming up, so I'll make sure to get a lot since we'll be hanging out together as a family.

Project Life 2015: Week 37

Week 37 was a big week for the boy... first day of school, backstage at the Zac Brown Band concert and the Annual Radtke Men MSU Football Game outing.  I like it when there are Alex heavy weeks because he doesn't show up in my project life pages as much as he should.  He's an independent teen boy who doesn't like to be in or take photos.  I try to sneak in photos when I can, but since I can't always do that, I tend to over do the pages when I do get a chance to take/get photos.

 Week 37....
