My weeks have been slow around here … a few highlights here and there (interviews, spray painted projects) but for the most part the last couple months of Project Life spreads are just lovely everyday life. The kind of stories in my One Year email series. The kind of stories I wish I had of each of my grandmothers raising 6 kids. The kind of stories I want to remember to document.
I love this project.
These are my Project Life spreads from February (Feb 11 – 24) …. My weeks run Monday to Sunday – which I love, because they keep the weekends together in a chunk. So the images are *roughly* arranged from Monday on the left to Sunday on the right.

WEEK 7 : February 11 – 17
Coming home from AZ, errands and a photo shoot
Andrew moved his mixing set up into our guest room (instead of the middle of the living room). Better than it was, but I still would like that to be a guest room.
He also spent a lot of this week hand-making Ghostbot Records tshirts. By hand. He is such a rockstar.
He hand-cut stencils from the logo and spraypainted each tshirt …… and then left them to dry throughout the garage.
Looks a little like ghosts
More work for Maggie Keegan Gross Photography … Taking packages to the UPS store is more or less an every-other-Thursday project.
Andrew had an eye appointment – his first in about 4 years, I think.
Also Saturday afternoon, assisted on a family shoot for Maggie. At the Annenberg Beach House – my first time there. I LOVED it! I want to visit all the time now.
Saturday afternoon, Andrew drove down to San Diego to see a friend.
Sunday morning I tagged along on an ordering session with Maggie so I can have a better idea of how she works.
Full weekend for sure.
You’ll notice we didn’t really do anything for Valentine’s Day. Not really our thing.
Just for fun …. Ratio of Amy photos to Andrew photos: 11:4
WEEK EIGHT: February 18 – 24
Even slower week this week…. Interview, Andrew working on a record release and rain.
The cards that are blurred out are details about the job interview I went on…. Interesting part of our story this spring. (kinda glad I had a reason to blur that out because my handwriting looks horrendous).
Also this side? Andrew needs a haircut, I hate driving in the rain, and sometimes I wake up with a cat on top of me.
Stayed home sick on Friday … this was a rough week for all my coworkers. I think all 20+ of us got sick this week.
The rest of this side is almost all Andrew … He’s getting ready to launch this 3-record box set, so we’ve got photos of the records, of his newsletter release (that I helped him with) and putting together the boxset with the artist.
Saturday afternoon he drove down to Riverside to see another friend (and his sons) who were in town.
Ratio of Amy photos to Andrew photos: 8:6
Not too shabby. Andrew is the BEST at taking photos for Project Life
