Well, now that it's almost June, I'm reporting in with my April Project Life hightlights. I really love this project. It's fun. I get to play with photos and paper and little embellishments, and the very best part is that at the end, I feel SO GOOD about doing a little documenting of our life in a way that gets those photos off the computer.
Just today I caught up to the current date (week of May 26). Hoo-ray! being caught up is my favorite feeling. I most enjoy the game when I'm not behind so many runs that it seems the game is lost. Even though I know I did it all last year, and caught up, it still intimidates me when I get far behind. Like everyone, life seems to be full, and I'm still learning how to keep it simple so that I stay caught up.
I love capturing the everyday. The phone photos are so great because it's just so easy to take the phone out and catch a moment, a little everyday story or routine, and of course the non everyday too, but I tend to have my bigger camera for those if I can help it.
Having a place for emails and texts is great too. Above is our mother/daughter b'day event for us December b'day girls. We both love JT. Who doesn't? Don't tell me if the answer is you. ;) We'll have to agree to disagree on that.
Inserts to capture big things like Easter weekend and oversize photos are still a favorite go-to technique for me. This year I think my PL is a lot simpler and a lot more photo heavy and I'm liking it more. Even though I've done it for a year and a half, I'm still finding my way. I like that. It's still a little creative puzzle, two of my favorite things; puzzles and creative pursuits.
