Hello! And welcome to our blog hop. We are celebrating our personal Project Life accomplishments for making it a quarter of the way through 2013! No easy feat.
Of course, Project Life is an extremely flexible system and can be tackled a number of ways,
But for today, we are celebrating those of us who are approaching Project Life as a 365 Day Project or probably more popularly, a 52 Week Project.
Either way it is an endurance event that takes planning, dedication, enthusiasm and a lot of creativity!
My personal committment for 2013 is to complete my weekly spreads 8 days after the week is complete and link up at TheMomCreative.com for Project Life Tuesday. So far, so good!
As a reward and final motivator to push me to this first milestone (25% through the year), I thought a fun blog hop was in order.
Tadadada.... Here is my Week 13 Project Life spread...
This is the first year I have kept up week after week after week. A large reason is that I get my photos printed weekly and I have made myself complete my weeks as I go. There is no temptation to get behind. Well, that is not entirely true. I do get tempted to put it off, but then I remember my deadline and I power through. Deadlines work really well for me.
Another thing that helps me keep up is to let myself off the hook some weeks and just do the bare minimum, meaning seven photos, seven journaling cards (give or take).
This week is the perfect example. In an ideal world I would have at least two inserts - one for Easter Sunday and the other for Day in the Life which I recorded on Saturday, but sometimes living life, is more important. This week, when I would normally be working on my spread, I had an important milestone for my youngest so family was in town visiting, the kids are off from school for Spring Break and we are camping this week! Believe me I was tempted to take a week off, but instead I took a few minutes to throw a spread together. And I love it! I hope to add those inserts in at a later time, but if I don't the week is still more than adequately recorded.
I'm so glad that you took a little time out of your day to stop by our blog hop, so I am having a little GIVE-AWAY!
Aren't you excited?
I wanted to share some of my favorite Project Life supplies. It is something I use in my album every week - LETTER STICKERS!!! Who doesn't love letter stickers??
(Please note the Basic Grey - Micro Mono Alpha Stickers I have are not in this color - I have a brown & cream. I totally forgot to take photos so have to rely on amazon.com and they are not showing the colors that I have. The Amy Tangerine stickers are the same though.)
ONE LUCKY PERSON WILL GET TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF AMY TANGERINE THICKERS, TWO COLORS OF BASIC GREY MICRO MONO ALPHA STICKERS AND ONE PACKAGE OF MY FAVORITE MARTHA STEWART LABELS BY AVERY (NOT PICTURED HERE - I COULDN'T FIND A PHOTO OF THEM ONLINE - THEY ARE FROM STAPLES.)
And wouldn't you know I forgot to take photos of them, so these links from Amazon.com will have to suffice.
