This is my second year with Project Life and I just can't seem to find my rhythm with it this year. It started right off in January as I was finishing December Daily and had an end of year/beginning of year trip to Seattle to see family. Then we ended up having to find a new car, decided to put our house on the market, did major decluttering/housecleaning and I'm taking quite a few online classes -its all added up to running around in different directions and being somewhat distracted. I need to get back into the photo taking habit as well.
I have 2 page layouts that cover 3 weeks and then others that cover an entire month (March). But that's what I like (and I'm sure others do too) about Project Life - its so totally flexible.
I'm not looking to add photos just for the sake of it - I really want them to be a reflection of our lives. I've become very conscious of how many albums I have and I have no idea what my two sons and their families would do with them so I think that has kept me from being so photo intense as well. So I'm hoping that now that I am current I can get back in to the swing of it and find a good balance between photos and journaling that tell our story.
I'm planning on doing a Week in a Life with Ali Edwards later this month. I plan on doing those pages in my Project Life album again this year. Are you doing A Week in the Life?
As you look through the photos you'll notice that I'm using a mix of items from Simple Stories Life Documented and the journaling cards from Becky Higgins' Project Life Cobalt kit.
What is your biggest challenge with Project Life?
