Well I did it! I finally completed a scrapbook project that I started way back in the summer of 2011. It’s been hanging over my head all this time. Don’t get me wrong, it was a great project and I am glad I did it. But it was time consuming. And when you’re a procrastinator like me, time-consuming is a scary, heavy word. My solution to those type of projects: avoidance.
But it all changed for me when I saw my friend Toni’s beautifully completed album of the same project. Her scrapbook skills are phenomenal. I felt inspired. And strangely enough lately, I’ve felt motivated to finish some stuff up. (Not sure if that’s a permanent personality change for me, but I’m just going with it for now!) Like cleaning and organizing our basement. I spent four solid hours down there the other day sorting, organizing, and re-sorting. It felt SO good. And – gasp! – it was actually fun! I’d share before and after pictures, but our basement is a scary, dark, dirty, creepy place. No one should have to look at it. Anyway, that’s another story.
Back to my project.
It’s called Week In the Life and was started by Ali Edwards. The concept is to document a week of your normal, every day life in detail. I invite you to read in more detail about this project here on her website, and meanwhile I’ll get right into showing you my completed album. You can click on any picture for a larger, clearer view.
(The album I used is from We R Memory Keepers. I love their albums. All the page protectors I used are also that brand.)
(The letter stickers I used for the first page of each day are from Amy Tangerine’s Thickers collection.)
And there you have it. I am really glad I did this project (and finished it 🙂 ) I LOVE doing Project Life, but since that’s an ongoing process through the year, I don’t often get that satisfaction of completion. So this was fun for me.
The best part? When I showed it to my husband he said, “This is really nice, hon! The kids will love looking at this some day!”
