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…

project life 2014 : weeks 25 – 26

July 9, 2014

When I printed these photos I actually thought that it would be a pretty colorful spread, but in the end it turned out fairly neutral again. At this point I’m just going to embrace it because that is obviously my style! It’s the same with the way I dress. Last weekend I allowed myself to shop a bit for clothes and all I bought were whites, blacks, grays, and blues. Hey, it’s easy to put an outfit together that way! So anyway, this is from June 16 – 29. Regular weeks. My whole30 started, and I included a photo of what is basically my breakfast every single day. We went on a date! Hopefully we can do more of this!…

project life 2014 : weeks 23-24

June 25, 2014

This spread is from June 2 – 15 and it’s one of my recent favorites. It encompassed two pretty regular weeks, along with Father’s Day. I had more photos than this, but I edited them down in order to keep things more simple and to have a little extra room to breathe. I’m glad I did. I had an extra space to do some journaling and I used it to write a broad overview of our lives. I noticed that for my filler cards and journaling cards I’m almost exclusively using black and white now. I guess I’m in a phase where I just like the photos to provide the color. All of us with my dad on Father’s Day….

project life 2014 : weeks 21-22

June 11, 2014

I usually do my Project Life spreads over the weekend (sometimes quickly on Saturday morning, sometimes in bits and pieces over both days) but I was so busy last weekend that I just finished this up yesterday evening. I really didn’t want to put it off any longer because for me right now it’s all about getting it done and staying on schedule. Therefore I did hardly any journaling at all. This is from May 19 to June 1. It’s mostly everyday photos, a group shot of the church group that ran the 5k, a couple of craft works-in-progress, and some filler. I just let the week in review cards do most of the talking, and only labeled a few…

project life 2014 : weeks 19 – 20

May 28, 2014

I’m happy to say that I’m still keeping up with Project Life. This is from May 5 – 18. There’s nothing really new here; it’s all my same old simple techniques. I did include an insert with the photos of our house from this post. I kind of set them apart by bordering them all in white, and I think it makes them look less cluttered. I always use some kind of tab when I do an insert. This was when our second dog died, so I included her picture and a little extra journaling about that event. A rare photo of my husband makes an appearance, one of Meredith and her cousin being adorable, and a screen shot of…
