The school year is almost here. In fact, it’s already here for a number of you. Here in the upper Midwest, many of our kids go back to school on the day after Labor Day. Last August, I came up with a little idea. I’d write a short message to my senior girl each week, find or take a photo, and … Read More

Project Life, Week Four + a Real Time Process Video

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Tutorials53 Comments

Last week I posted a time-lapse video to see whether or not I could actually finish a Project Life spread in 30 minutes or less.

Last week, I made the outrageous claim that I finished my weekly Project Life spread in 30 minutes. Okay, maybe outrageous is overkill. But a few Facebook readers asked if that was in fact true.

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Tutorials108 Comments

Last year, right around Week 17, I did it. I made the switch from a hybrid Project Life approach to a full-fledged digital one. It was kind of an impulse move. I’d been toying with the idea for oh, all of about a day, and thought: Ima just do it. So I did and there has been no looking back. … Read More
