Goodness, I'm very behind! But every time I get back to working on the Project Life album I'm doing for my family, I'm happy to be back at it. Every.single.time. Right now I've just finished May, (thus the highlights), and I'm working on catching up all of June all at once.
When catching up on this weekly spread method, I might have to resort to more "filler" content than photos and stories, but it's ok with me. I like the filler stuff too. I've always been a collector of ephemera, nice to use some of it somewhere else in life. And I agree with this post by Ali. The whole of it being the point of this project for me.
I love that this project makes it so easy to keep track of progress, like succulent cuttings and their growth.
And seriously, I would have never ever taken a photo of my son's school shoes on the last day without PL for motivation...and that photo captures so much for me. I know it's likely an ugly photo, or one that has no appeal to others, but tells a few different stories for us Garrisons.
I recently bought some of these big stickers from MAMBI and they do not dissappoint. that's what the awesome is from above.
The everyday things of life, love including those.
And the special moments of life too.
I'm taking pictures, printing pictures, and putting them somewhere. Hooray! Takes a lot of mama guilt off me for no baby books, or slideshows or...all those other wonderful things people do, I just feel good about doing some sort of documenting for our family.
Love making my own cards, with script words (hooray), and the "yes" above, (using the L Letterpress system), love the Studio Calico cards like the you make me happy...and the let it go card I cut down from Life Love Paper's prints. Oh, and "selfies" are most flattering when totally blown out by the light (ha).
Taking note of the special in the every day...and having fun writing on photos still.
I couldn't resist. ;)
May, done and done in the 'ol PL...and June is started and in my sights!
To see my full spreads from May, you can check out my gallery on Studio Calico site. For such a personal project, I sure do enjoy seeing other people's spreads myself...guess it's like blog reading really...fun to see what other people are up to.
