This month I’m participating in 30 Days of Lists, and I’m going to be sharing my weekly lists with you each Tuesday! If you want to see my lists as they happen, follow me on Instagram @Megan_NerdNest. You’ll also be able to find those Instagrams on my Twitter and Jake’s and my Flickr.
Welcome to my first week of lists for the March 2013 edition of #30Lists! Instead of making a mini book for my lists as I have done in the past, I’m including my lists as weekly inserts in my Project Life. Because the first list was on Friday, I only had three lists to include in this insert. So I chose a smaller page protector for this week, from the Project Life Small Variety Pack 1.
You’ll also notice my not-so-stellar stamping. I’m not great at it yet, but I’m rolling with the mistakes.
I used a similar format for all of my base pages. Even though the size of this one is a bit different, it starts the same as the other inserts: with a #30Lists printable from rukristin in the upper left corner. I used the free Silhouette File Folder shape of the week and resized it to a square to fill in one of the squares. I love that you can see through to the next page (even though I haven’t made the next page yet).
List 1: I Am a Lister Because…
- It helps me keep track
- I love crossing things off
- It helps me be concise
- I am forgetful
- Easy documentation
List 2: About me
Nerd, blogger, swimmer, “awesome pants” – Jake, city mouse, =, life documenter, artist, mama of 2, cook, happy, learner, wife, logical, <3 books, writer, daughter, sister, friend, liberal, teacher, humanist, reader, academic, sociologist, <3 punk, snuggler, a family woman
I only had to fit one list on the back side, so it’s mostly filler. I forgot to add it in before I took photos, but I’m going to write a little bit about #30Lists and what it means to me on that yellow card (which is from the Baby Project Life Kit).
I’m also making it a goal to get one photo of me into each week of lists. This one is a photo my friend Harvey snapped of me. My friend Jack taught a screenprinting class last Sunday, and it was amazing. (I’ll be sharing about that experience on Thursday.)
I chose this photo because it ties in with my Day 3 List:
List 3: This Year, I am Going to
