OBSERVATIONS: I have to tell you something that I’ve been doing and it’s something I haven’t done very often during the past few years: I sit with my album (my Project Life album, specifically) and I page through it every few weeks and just smile and think, “Damn. I’m so glad I’m going this.”
It’s such a cool vehicle to chronicle every day life. The fact that I’ve never done a Project 365 or something of this ilk with any consistency makes me really happy that I’m sticking to this. Indeed.
This week was pretty mellow, in short, as the card says: nothing too crazy. I like those weeks. I like them an awful lot, actually. Here are my pages for Week 15:
This week was purposefully kept stripped down. I opted out on using stickers on my photos and instead just dropped some text onto a select few. Because I print all of my photos for Project Life at home, it’s simple for me to drop some text onto the photos.
And if you’re wondering how I set everything up to print at home, it’s simple. I have stocked up both on photo paper and ink and honestly, I feel like it balances out financially. Yes, it would be cheaper to send out my photos to Shutterfly, but the thing I like and need in this project is immediacy. Sunday is my day to print photos, write out my weekly card and assemble everything. Speaking of the weekly report…
I’ve been using this card for weeks now and it comes from this set, Frame Journalers 1. The set contains a series of cards, and I had a request from a blog reader to create an extra card that said, “month in review” and I figured, why not make that a freebie download today? The frame titles are created and then rasterized into uneditable art. The reason I have to do it that way is to be able to use my favorite font and have it read on all of your computers. So, if you’d like a free “month in review” frame journaler, click on the link below to download the zipped file. Note: this file will only read in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
Now where was I?
And another week is on the books!
