week in the life 2014 : saturday in the album

April 8, 2015

Recently I had a day off without the kids so I powered through and completed this album! It took me most of the day but it feels awesome. I had a lot more photos to deal with since it was a weekend, and I had to leave quite a few out but the ones I chose tell the best stories. Saturday started out a little rough because it was the morning after Halloween. I was kind of expecting it but it was still hard! Once I powered through the morning with the kids (which did have its fun parts), however, David took over and gave me a good chunk of time to myself. I used it to knock out all…

week in the life 2014 : friday in the album

March 17, 2015

You guys I’m so happy about this album update! I think it’s actually my favorite day so far (see the others here). I think because I left room for simple filler cards, and there is a bit of a color scheme. I never use orange in my scrapbooking, but since it was Halloween I went with it. On this page I actually used a flip page protector. I wanted to include most of the Halloween pictures, but I needed just a little more space to document some quotes and a favorite moment. It worked out great! I love this last series of photos of Meredith jumping into David’s arms. She slept in her Spider-Man costume also. <3 I’m re-inspired to…

week in the life 2014 : thursday in the album

March 11, 2015

Over halfway done with this album!! It’s only four months past my original “due date” for finishing it…but I¬†will finish! Like I said last week, I’m bored of the black and white and I’m just trying to get the pages together. I’m sticking with the same elements and trying to add just enough detail so that I know what’s going on. All morning photos. The journaling card can be found here. Left hand side of this page has photos from work, a screenshot of a text I got from David (blurred for privacy), and a couple of observations.   On the right are photos from a Halloween party we went to at the nursing home David’s grandfather lives in. I…

week in the life 2014 : wednesday in the album

March 4, 2015

Here is another installment of my slowly-coming-together week in the life album from last October. I really hope to wrap up this project in the next month, two months tops. I’ve learned a lot from it and am SO glad to have done it, but I’m ready to move on (and definitely make some changes for next time). Wednesday’s enlarged photo came from the morning when Meredith put her Gyffy toy in “time-out.” The rest of the page and the next are morning photos. I am still using the front of the 3×8 pocket to document meals. On the back this day I wrote down a few random things: a quote, a gratitude, and a favorite moment. Notice that I…

week in the life 2014 : tuesday in the album

January 28, 2015

Hi there! Just want to quickly share my layouts for Tuesday of the week in the life album I have in progress. This one came together faster than Monday since I knew what I was going for. I’m starting every day with a full page photo with date stamped on the gold foil labels. I also plan to do a rundown of my meals on this narrow 3×8 page for each day. On the back of this one I wrote out a few Meredith quotes. The right side is some morning photos. The below layout encompasses the bulk of my day. Work (with pumping) and running on the treadmill after. It’s funny because I really can’t document much of what…
