project life 2014 : weeks 29 – 30

August 6, 2014

Today’s Project Life update is from July 14 – 27. As you can tell, I take a lot of pictures of my kiddos. I keep telling myself to branch out and capture other things, but then I rarely do. New goal!


During these two weeks I finished whole30, we celebrated Meredith’s birthday (I used an insert to document it, pictured at the end), Liam turned 6 months old, and I was sick for a week.



The first ice cream after whole30 deserved to be documented.


At first I was going to print all of the pictures in black and white, but it was just too much. I needed a little bit of color.



I really love cropping photos to add white space. The photo below wasn’t the best shot, but I thought it was so cute how the cousins were lined up on a bench to eat. In memory keeping sometimes it’s better to include the photos that tell the best story rather than the ones that look the nicest.


I actually included two inserts for Meredith’s third birthday party.




Simple, simple! I just love this project!

    I love your project life!!!! I have always admired how awesome it looks but never started one for myself – maybe I should. It seems relatively easy!

    you capture some great moments with your pictures; love the line about ones that tell a story vs. look the nicest.

    Glad I made the cut… but let’s be real, the star of that date was the ice cream!

    Is that mint chocolate chip with hot fudge that I spy?!

    The cousins picture is so cute!

  8. 8

    From Dalziel:

    I love that you stay current each week. About how long does something like this take you? I’m years and years behind and am losing the personal touch/stories/small details because I simply forget.

    From Kathleen:

    I actually wrote a post about my process (including how long everything takes). The most time-consuming part for me is just choosing and editing photos! What also helps me a lot is that I write a few sentences in a 5-year journal every night, so that I can always reference it to see what happened that day.

    Read the process post here. Hope this helps!

    Oh so cool that you’re nearby! I’ve been thinking lately that I really want some Houston blogging buddies. Glad to meet you! :)
