Project Life 2012 | Week 42

Still playing catch-up. I’m hoping to be back to current by the end of the week. The whole ordering photos online thing is really not for me. I calculated the price of printing in different ways, and I think I’m going to go with a combination of home printing for instant gratification stuff (even though it’s pretty expensive), CVS for next-day stuff (depending on the photo quality), and Snapfish for in-the-distance photo projects (I didn’t include Snapfish in the cost anaylisis, but I’m pretty sure they’re the cheapest option of all. I’ll let you know.)

I’m also getting a little held up by my Project Real Life inserts. I love the prompts in the class, but it’s hard to complete those prompts, capture everyday normal stuff, and do documentation for the prompts for my Daily Doc workshop. So I decided to just soldier on and slip those in whenever they’re done for a low stress approach. No need to make things complicated.

And now that you’ve read me babbling for several paragraphs, I’ll get to the content of the actual post, which is the Week 42 spread, covering October 14-20. I wrote the wrong dates down, I’m just now realizing, so I’ll have to go back and fix that.

The first page covers Eliza’s new room, a trip to Trader Joe’s (we generally all go grocery shopping together), playing tag, making pizza dough, and everyday Instagrams. The captions are a combination of label stickers and little bitty scraps. I keep tiny scraps with subtle patterns in a bowl on my desk just for this purpose.

The first side of the insert is a brunch at Succotash. I lifted the journaling right from the blog post (edited for brevity).

The back side of the insert has cute photos of the kids painting Halloween signs.

Then random pretty Kansas City photos and Boo Bayou, the Halloween festival at Eliza’s school. I love that photo of Eliza and her best friend Nani running off.

I love this week. I love that I’m in my groove. Can’t wait to knock ‘em out and get back on track… so I can start doing the 2011 album again.

Come back tomorrow for a review of the products I’ve been using for Project Life this year and Monday for a BIG Project Life announcement!


This month I’m running a free workshop called Daily Doc | November 2012. If you want to see my daily documentation, be challenged to document your life, and get inspired, go check it out.
