project life 2014 : weeks 47 – 48 (& a blog update)

December 10, 2014

Popping in to share a Project Life spread with you today. But before that, let me give you a little blog update…

The season of life where I am able to post daily is over for the foreseeable future. Work is busy, Liam is mobile, and other personal projects need to take precedence when I do get spare time. So my aim is to post here 2-3 times per week, but it won’t be scheduled.

You can expect similar content as always: thoughts on motherhood & life updates, tips for working moms, goal setting, memory keeping projects, creative pursuits, natural health topics, things I love, and thoughts on books & reading. Basically anything I’m up to or interested in. :)

So now onto Project Life, one thing I’m going to keep up with for sure and continue to share.

This spread was from November 17 to 30 and included Thanksgiving. I decided right away to do an insert for the holiday so I wouldn’t be jamming in the photos.

On the left side I have Liam’s 10-month update, a few cute snapshots, and journaling about one of our Saturdays.

Then on the right is a photo from David’s grandfather’s second 90th birthday family dinner, a selfie of me & Liam, Meredith at the dentist, and her posing outside. The journaling is more on dealing with Liam’s constant sickness (although thankfully he has remained well for the last week!).

I like this cute card and the sentiment “happy thoughts” was what I wanted to have regarding the situation. :)

Now onto the Thanksgiving insert:

For a title I just stamped onto cardstock and adhered it to a photo of our tabletop. Simple journaling about the day underneath, then a picture of the whole extended family.

The back is just more cute photos of the kids. Little details:

Here I stamped on a label and put it directly on the page protector.

And I added a tab like I do with all my inserts.

That’s that! I was wondering, what are your memory-keeping plans for 2015? Anyone thinking of starting for the first time?

    I am going to use Heidi Swapp’s memory planner for the coming year. I have done a similar format before, with a calendar and page of pictures per month. (Awhile back, studio calico or someone called it a Project 12 challenge.) I think it’s doable for my busyness. I’m excited to start using it in January! Would love to do more scrapbooking than this, but it will be very hit or miss.

    Good for you for allowing yourself to scale back on blog posting. I’ve had several inadvertent days with no post in the past several weeks. I don’t like that, but sometimes life just takes over and I have to remind myself that other things are sometimes (often) more important. I’ve been considering going to four days per week, but can’t quite push myself to do it yet. …maybe in January.

    Great photos. I was hoping to have time during my work-at-home day today to do my November PL pages, but it hasn’t happened.
