Project Life 2014: Week 1 Notes



I finally decided to do Project Life. I was in Hobby Lobby one day texting with my friend Kelli, and she said she’d do it if I did. It was that quick. I was so excited. I still am, but I’m also hesitant and a little scared. I’m such a perfectionist…and not in a good way (Is there a good way?). Perfectionism holds me back all the time (see previous post!). Anyway, I am forging ahead…

I took some pictures of my kids this week, because I don’t know when they’ll all be together again in the next several months. I’m thinking that my PL2014 Week 1 might be a list of weekly highlights and the photos I took of the kids, rather than photos from throughout the week. See how I am overthinking this?

Jan 1-5, 2014

  1. Multiple loud, competitive games of Monopoly.
  2. Seeing Frozen for the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th times.
  3. New Year’s Day at Granny’s.
  4. Goodbye hugs with Darby.
  5. Spoons with Emily and Angela.
  6. Twelve Baseball Rookie Camp for the guys.
  7. New vacuum cleaner.
  8. Beginning of the “Simplify” campaign.
  9. Every Christmas decoration still in place because the kids don’t want me to take them down.
  10. Doug’s TV interview with KAGS.
  11. My first scrapbook page in almost two years.

Okay. So what I see here is the potential for a scrapbook layout for each item at some point. Maybe PL will help me get back to actual scrapbooking…

Oh, and I really need help figuring out how to photograph the Project Life pages! I can’t figure out how to avoid the glare.
