Project Life: Tuesday, March 19

All caught up again, finally.

I hate to get too far behind with Project Life because then I lose motivation to truly document our happenings and instead get too focused on getting pictures in the album.  The stories end up untold. Becky shared on her blog today correspondence from a fellow Project Lifer who is not caught up.  Brandi's response was a good one.  I encourage you to check it out.

I totally agree you have to have a time system that works for you.  Aby Garvy, of Simplify 101, found her system.  Check our her 3 post series on getting organized for Project Life.  Super helpful but find what works for you.

I have found a rhythm that works pretty well for me so I try my best to stick with it. On the weekend, usually Friday night after everyone has headed to bed, I print my photos, round the corners, and get them in the album.  Then over the course of the rest of the weekend, I add any fun stuff and get my journaling done. I print my photos at home so this makes it super easy.  When life gets crazy, I just go back to my system and get as much done as I can from past weeks but I always make sure to work on the most recent week too.

Here's a look at the Weeks 8 through 11:

Week 8

I love this card "To the moon and back" from Studio Calico.  Parker drew a photo at school and it matched almost perfectly for this week!

Week 9

Week 10

Love this wooden card from Studio Calico!

Week 11

 Love this transparency and the "This Week" card.
