Project Life: Week 47

And just like that... I'm caught up again!  It was a big day of waiting around for deliveries and such, so I had the time.  Now this gives me some time this week to plan out my Daily December album.  I really hope I can keep up on both.  I've posted in the past about our family tradition of unwrapping a Christmas book a day as our countdown to Christmas.  The kids still love the tradition but have truly outgrown a lot of the books.  I would really like to start adding in a Daily December album (and maybe make some albums of pictures from Christmases past) to our books to unwrap.  I think it could be a fun way to keep the tradition going and to have fun reminiscing about previous Decembers.  Of course, we'd still have to keep our favorite Christmas books in there, but I think it could be a fun mix to have the albums and the books.  We'll see though... we're just a few days away from December and I still can't decide what size and format I would like to do the book in!

Well, enough of that... here's week 47...

Project Life: Week 46

I'm closing in on my goal... another week done!   I'm going to be sitting around tomorrow waiting for the alarm guy, a furniture pick-up and a furniture delivery, so maybe I'll get week 47 wrapped up as well!

 This one mainly features the I Feel Great cards by Emily Merritt.

Project Life: Week 45

Still here and still project life-ing!  We've moved and are settling in rather nicely into our new home!  Lots to do still, but it really does feel like "home" already.  The one thing that is holding me back is our lackluster wifi coverage in the house... however, that should be remedied within a couple of week.

I'm going to start week 46 today and hope to have it and week 47 done by the end of the week.  Then I'll be caught up again.  Two reasons for the push... 1.  I like being caught up and 2.  I really want to attempt a December Daily/Document Your December type project and I don't feel like I will have much chance of success if I'm behind on PL too.  Wish me luck!  :-)

Project Life: Week 44 Part 2

The second part of week 44...

I really love how these pages turned out as well!  I think a big part of it is that I had my big camera out more than usual this week.  I like being able to use bigger photos on my spreads.  My phone photos have printed well... but I still like to keep them pretty small.  I also really like this kit by Amy Jaz Designs (Eye of Newt)... it worked great to tie everything together!

I'm already not too excited about putting together week 45... it's halfway through the week and I think I have a sum total of about 3 phone photos to work with so far.  And with heavy duty purging and packing this weekend, I'm pretty sure the big camera won't be out much, if at all.  Oh well... the holidays are here soon and my big camera gets lots of use then!

Project Life: Week 44 Part 1

Lots of fun photos last week, so I decided to do a four page spread.  I need to remember that I can do more of those since I'll have lots of pages available after splitting my book in two.  I love how part one turned out...

Project Life: Week 43

Another week done!  I can't believe I just completed week 43!  Less than 10 weeks left in the year... that's both really exciting and really depressing.  :-)
