It was during Project Life Week 17 that I was sure that it would be my last week! It was becoming more and more difficult to stay up-to-date and it was during weeks 16 and 17 that the photos were not keeping up either. When it came time to put the two-page spreads together, I simply did not have enough to fill up the page protectors. It stayed that was for a while and I continued into the other weeks trying to come up with a way to add more stuff. But once our vacation week hit, I realized that I would not ever have time to “go back” so I took the two weeks and reduced them into a two-page for two-weeks and moved on. Here’s how it looked:
The pictures may not necessarily fit on the page where they are located but it does give an overview of what happened during that two-week period. Here’s a closer look:
I used my blog post as journalling about Big Tom. I added the menu from our night out at Chef to Go since I didn’t have any photos. This two-pager is definitely not my favorite in the book but it’s completed and so I moved on.
Here’s a look at Week 18:
Lots of activity at the cabin this week…it’s nearly livable! It was also A’s birthday this week and we had cake at home after a dinner at the Keg. The Ice Caps were still in the playoffs and L made me a very proud mama! Thanks to B for the photos from the cabin. It’s nice not to always have the sole responsibility for taking ALL of the photos to document our life. Here’s a closer look:
So I am still keeping up-to-date with project life. I am not a quitter and I have come so far, it would just be a shame to stop now. I have changed my focus for the summer months. I am using a more digital process It is more of a one page update with a grid/collage of photos and the pockets are holding my ICAD’s. But I’ll show you more of that later:)
We are still in exam mode here as A has two public exams next week…biology and history. So it’s been pretty low-key around the house this past few weeks. L is finished her exams and is getting into summer mode. B spends his time at the cabin doing odd jobs and cleaning up after the carpenters. The good news is that we are just a couple of weeks away from a point where we can stay in it. It won’t be finished for quite a while but we do have running water, bathrooms, interior walls and doors. So if you don’t mind roughing it a little, it will be great! I have been playing with ICAD2 and participating in the Washi Workshop at Studio Calico (I’ll have a complete post on that when I am finished the workshop to show you some of the projects that I have completed). I am currently working on a layout for a Layout Tag — I love those…working with a LO for inspiration and a time limit…forces you to “get it done!”
I’ll be back tomorrow with an update for ICAD2…enjoy your Saturday!
