Just trying to catch up on posting my Project Life spreads!
I decided to only take this week to Friday and include Saturday in the next week, since that’s the day we left for CHA. I want to see the whole CHA trip in one spread.
I’ve been going for simple all along, but this week I had to make sure it was extra simple and fast. Coming back from CHA with over 50 videos to post here (still a few more left!) in addition to the usual stuff we do already, I didn’t have much time.
It’s amazing to have such an easy system for recording so much detail of our lives!
Thought I’d crop real close up so you can hopefully see the stories that go along with the photos.
Notice I’m not a stickler for putting something in for every day, nor even for marking the days of everything. For example, I’m really not concerned that we know which day it was that Aiden was holding Gatsby around the waist while they kissed (we don’t like Aiden to do that, but I can’t help snapping pics when he does!).
The date is recorded in the metadata of the photo and it’s all good.
Other things do warrant a label that tells the day to give an idea of what our schedule and life is like. Those are stickers that say,”Fri” next to the butterfly. Notice, I also don’t worry about putting things in chronological order. My Friday evening picture shows up before my Friday morning pictures.
I just go with whatever looks better and is faster and I don’t freak out about it.
With all these photos, I decided the fastest way to get the journaling in would be to just type it up, cut it out, and lay it on top of, or next to, the photos. In my rush my measurements got a bit off on these, but I’m cool with it.
Project Life is so forgiving when it comes to imperfection.
Notice: It’s beyond time to change the blade on my cutter. I think there’s a blade in the closet. Just haven’t taken the time to bother yet so my cuts are not clean lately.
Another one of those, “just going with it,” things.
