project life 2013 : weeks 31 – 33

September 4, 2013


I am getting back on track! The weeks aren’t lining up exactly because this spread encompasses roughly the first half of August, but eventually I’ll get back on a two-week schedule. One thing that helped me a lot in putting this together was that I had a lot of horizontal photos to pull from.


I’m still keeping things simple and it was nice to not have any inserts to deal with. The first page was pretty much all about our impromptu trip to Nashville to vist a friend.


I loved the video of Meredith chasing geese so I uploaded it to YouTube and printed a QR code for it.


This pocket includes the bulk of the journaling about the trip. I wanted to write more than what would fit on a 3×4 and since it was personal I thought a fold-out card would work best. I hope the arrow will clue future me in to the fact that there is more written inside. :)


The right side is daily life stuff. A couple of Meredith playing with her cousins, at the store with daddy (he won her a stuffed animal that she carries around with her now; so cute), playing in the sandbox, and a bump shot with a recap of my latest doctor’s appointment. Then I used one journaling card to write about a few other things that I didn’t have pictures of.


Feels good to be getting back into the swing of things!

    I always love seeing Project Life updates. I have fallen so far behind and I like your idea of two week spreads, but I have SOOOOO many photos and I am not good at being discriminating. It seems like I try to add an extra insert each week because SOMETHING IS ALWAYS SO IMPORTANT (though, not really). I really need to let go and leave some photos unprinted and some moments undocumented because I’m stressing myself out over it (which is so not what PL is supposed to do!!).

    On another note, I made the chicken taco bowls you linked to a while ago last night. So good! It’s a recipe that will be sticking around in regular rotation (it seems I’m always picking failure slow cooker recipes, so I super appreciate your recommendation of this recipe!).

    One idea that I’ve seen people do is have a book printed (like a Blurb book or similar company) for all the pictures that don’t make it in the spread. I’ve done a couple and they’re fun to just throw random photos in and then go back through and just write in by hand for captions!

    Also I am the opposite of a gifted cook, even with slow cookers, so if it works for me it should work for anyone! Glad you liked the taco bowls!
