Project Life Week 1 (Starting at the end of March!)

Yeah, you read that right…I am starting Project Life at the end of March. I mean, why the heck not!

I have never been what some would call a “conventional scrapbooker”. I complete my December Daily albums during the summer (because I am lazy), I mix all of my layouts together regardless of size and orientation, and yes, I sprinkle in a bit of Project Life style layouts as well.

The thing is…I am super busy right now…and that’s putting it mildly. I began to notice that I haven’t taken the time to document my everyday life. I make layouts for design team projects and contract work but my personal projects have gone to the wayside. After a recent spring break vacation to Disney World, I began to think about my lack of personal scrapbooking and I made the commitment to spend at least 30 minutes to an hour most days of the week to getting my memories document.

That’s where Project Life comes in.

At its core, Project Life is about capturing life’s everyday moments. I am all for documenting major events, holidays, birthday, etc. But I also want a record of my every day life; the daily adventures of my family, our routines, random musings and so forth. I decided that I would use Project Life in a way that fuses my love of traditional scrapbooking with the simplicity of pocket scrapbooking.

My approach to Project Life is pretty straight forward: stories first, photos second, and embellishing last. It’s all about documenting my thoughts and the details of the day. Nothing fancy or time consuming. To keep track of the stories I want to document, I am using a traveler’s notebook – mainly for journaling purposes. At the end of the week, I print my photos, grab my notes and a few embellishments, and complete my spread.

That’s pretty much the process.

I don’t want to think to hard about this…I just want a mechanism that allows me to be creative and to capture my memories when I am short on time.
