Project Life 2014: Week 18

Week 18 was one of those weeks where I apparently forgot to take photos other than two days at the beginning and end of the week!  Lots of filler!

And since I forgot to include it with the week that had the OK Computer pictures, here is some video of the show...

Project Life 2014: Week 16

Week 16...

Is it just me or is this year flying by incredibly fast?  I'm working on week 21 right now, which made me realize that in just five short weeks, I could be ordering my book one with the first half of 2014 in it!!  Seems completely unreal.  That is something that I've found with doing PL, the weeks seem to just fly... I just get one week done and it's time to start another!  I totally love it though (even though I'm still in a bit of a slump).

Pretty much everything on these came from the April members content on Little Dreamer Designs.

Project Life 2014: Week 15

Well, apparently there are some benefits to procrastination!  I was procrastinating on posting, not really on purpose, just busy.  I had skipped week 15, but had weeks 16-18 done and ready to post.  Yesterday I finally finished up week 15 and when I started this blog post I realized that I had finished it in time to post everything in order instead of skipping around!

This week was way different for me.  Very colorful and "busier" than I normally do.  I've never thought of myself as a watercolor paper girl, but these papers from the facebook hop freebie kit from the Lilypad just happened to match Clara's solo costume perfectly.  I love how these pages turned out!

In other memory keeping news... Clara is still plugging away at her own project life book.  Her April prints arrived last week and we're working on her pages together.  I love that she's enjoying this and I truly love that it's something we do together!  I still need to take photos of her completed pages.  We've also joined a Project Life Random Acts of Kindness group and have had so much fun sending out and receiving surprise packages of supplies!  

Our next project I need to blog about is our travel journals for our big summer trip.  We've decided to do Smash Book style journals.  Clara picked up hers on Saturday and it is an actual Smash Book.  I'm on the fence about what to get.  Right now I'm currently leaning toward the Michael's Recollections Creative Chaos journal.  I love Smash Books, but I like that the Recollections one is a three ring binder.  We started acquiring fun supplies on Saturday at Michael's (and I may have impulse shopped my way through the Joann site later that evening).  My Mother's Day gift was directly related to this project too and I can't wait for it to get here!  I'll post more on that once it's in.  Next up, Clara and I need to find a good compact way to organize our supplies for the trip.

I enjoyed scrapbooking in the past, but never as much as I do now.  Project Life was the first step... I love the bare bones memory keeping of it and how the whole family has gotten involved with taking photos for my books.  It's at a whole new level now that Clara has started her own projects.  As we enter the teen years, I'm so glad that we have something we do together.  And hopefully it become habit for her, something that she can take with her for her adult life as well.  I'm also enjoying that with doing these projects with Clara, I'm slowly escaping my safe little digital scrapbooking bubble and starting to play with paper.  

Anyway... enough rambling!  Time to hit "publish"!

Project Life 2014: Week 14

I should type more, but had a fabulous deep tissue massage earlier today at the chiropractor and now I'm barely capable of forming complete sentences :-)

So here it is, week 14...

And I just realized that I'm typing this on Friday night and setting it to post on Saturday.  So the opening sentence isn't true for when this posts, but it was true for when I wrote it.  :-/

Project Life 2014: Week 13 Part 2

I've forgotten to post again... oops!  I'm still behind... but in a weird way.  I've been hopping all around.  Week 13 is done (all six pages), 14 is done, 15 is still in progress (waiting on photos), 16 is done and I'm just about to wrap up 17.  It's now May 1st and I haven't done my March round up of leftover photos and should be getting ready to start April's round up.  Those round ups sounded like a great idea when I was all caught up, but now, with being behind, I'm starting to question their value :-)
