OBSERVATIONS: Another week is on the books, and this week was the week that a big whopping order of printed Project Life pages showed up (see this post from yesterday for a lively discussion of digital/hybrid/traditional memory keeping.)
Once again, my iPhone provided all of the photos you see in this week's spread. If it weren't for the fact that my phone bill is ridiculous every month, I'd say the $199 you pay for an iPhone is so, so worth it for the camera—and its convenience—alone. I think my DSLR is feeling sorely neglected right now. (Have you read about the upcoming Phone Photography Workshop at Big Picture Classes? If not and you like your phone and your apps, check it out! Class starts in just a few weeks.)
Here are my pages from last week.
I'm probably going to get in trouble for sharing the photo of Cole Photoshopped onto the body of Jon Snow from Game of Thrones, but I honestly couldn't help myself. With all the sickness that's been floating around our house for the past three weeks, it truly has been a Game of Throats. And besides, if you can't have fun with Photoshop, what's the point?
Last week marked the end of the school year for both kids, and now we are in their first full joint summer vacation. (If you missed my free "School's Out" card download, click here to snag it.)
It also marked getting the yearbooks back from the printer. Aidan and her team did such a great job this year, and we all learned a lot in the process. My role was simply as their production artist, and I absolutely loved doing it. We found that cover art for a buck online. (Their school mascot is a heron.) This summer, she and I are going to do some serious advance planning for the 2013/14 book. It's also a great way for an introvert like me to volunteer my time to help my kids' school. As long as I don't have to be in a large group of people, I'm golden.
