OBSERVATIONS: And so, Week One of Project Life, Volume 2013 is underway! This year, I have far less trepidation that I can keep up with this project. It's just part of what I do now, so finishing Week One didn't feel quite as epic and novel as last year.
And yet, I'm still in love.
Kicking off the album, of course, is my title page. I posted a shot of this last week, along with a whole mess of title page freebies that you can find by clicking here.
I'm a sucker for color and font themes. This year, at least until I get tired of it, I'm going in this direction. Lots of grey, mustard and helvetica rounded bold condensed.
That's the great thing about this project. You can do what you like and then you can change your mind and do something else with it. Even using a core kit, you can find ways to mix in all sorts of things. It's totally up to you.
Here's a look at my Week One pages:
This week was also the kick off of Move More, Eat Well 2.0. My students get special Project Life cards (there are a lot of them who use this system) that relate to our health and fitness journeys, so you'll see these cards popping up in my album this year.
Yes, I have succumbed to Downton Abbey. I'm already half way through Season 2 (Thanks, HuluPlus free trial!)
(This spine file is part of the freebie download!)
For anyone still wondering if this project is for them, I say jump in! You technically don't even need to have the kits to do this project (although it makes it easier).
I'm a huge fan of keeping a note book, or using an app (I use Day One) to take notes of your week as you go. I love doing my Week in Review card to highlight the highs, lows and every day inbetweens of the past seven days. And speaking of seven days, this year I'm documenting my week as Monday through Sunday. I asked my Facebook community, "What do you do?" because last year, it lined up as a Sunday through Saturday week. This year, I'm trying something new!
And that is all I wrote for Week 1.
Keep in mind, all year long I'll include links to the products I use, as seen below. Here's to another year of Project Life!
