I’m on a kick of documenting buying our home specifically and 2010 in general. Right now I’m putting together pages on what we liked about the house on our first impression of our house tour, because it will be fun to look back on why we chose it. There are going to be a ton of pages for this, but for now I’m documenting what we love about the entryway, living room, and dining room.
This week’s challenge at Document Life Workshop is to use wood on your pages, and I WENT with that theme. I have wood letters (which I rescued from an unfinished mini album, along with the typed journaling), wood sequins, woodgrain washi tape, wood veneer embellishments, wood patterned paper, and a real wood card. Like I said, I went with the theme (maybe even a little overboard, but who’s to say?).
These are the photos from our entryway, and document the things that we liked about it: the working light on the banister, the old piano, the leaded glass windows.
I lifted the journaling from a minibook I started and never finished. The page was less than six inches wide, so I just adhered it onto kraft paper and added more journaling.
I also wrote the things we loved about more of the first floor: the tons of natural light and windows, the lovely old wood floors and trim (not painted!), the open floor plan, and extra rooms (who needs a kitchen, breakfast room, AND dining room?).
I also used this as an opportunity to mix the old with the new. I started out with Project Life Studio Calico kits, then filled in the gaps with some stash busting. Yep, I’ve been hoarding the Amy Tangerine house paper.
Next up, I’m finishing the pages for the rest of the tour, then I have a memory keeping e-mail goldmine so I can document how stressful all that freakin’ paperwork is.
