OBSERVATIONS: I didn't get around to posting my pages last week. Work and life got in the way of printing my photos, writing my journal cards and putting it all together.
In fact, as I write this, I don't know if I'll have enough photos to document Week 17 (hopefully coming on my usual Thursday post day.) We'll have to see, as they say. I've been wondering what it would look like to just do one week per page on those weeks when I don't have enough content. I know there are people out there doing just that, and honestly, the idea appeals to me greatly.
Another idea that appeals to me is going all digital for Project Life in 2014. As I try to figure out where albums are going to go in this house, it appeals to me even more. I don't have endless storage and the thought doing it all digitally then getting an actual printed book at year's end… that seems kind of cool. Just letting that simmer around my brain. I'd love to hear from those of you who do your Project Life in the all digital format. Tell me what you love about it.
Here are my pages for Week Sixteen:
I used one of the folded 3 x 4 cards to journal something personal, something I don't necessarily want everyone to read unless my family members are so inclined to pull it out years from now and do just that. Which is fine by me, actually. I like the idea that you can tuck something very personal into this album format. I may do more of that this year.
This past week saw, in my opinion, another monumental milestone in the development of a child: when they no longer have to shop in the boys' department. Sigh.
Speaking of Cole, he was rocking a very Kurt Cobain-inspired vintage look for his 7th grade dance last week. So grateful he let me take a few photos.
Week Sixteen also was when the Boston Marathon bombing happened. While I didn't cover it extensively, I did want to include it in my weekly recap.
The question of covering tragedies in our albums has come up from time to time here in the comments of my blog. What do you do? Do you include them in your documentation?
Onto the week ahead.
