This marks my *final* blog post showing off my 2013 Project Life spreads. I suppose that means that I should have something poignant and thoughtful to say about my experience this last year …. but really? I’m just GRATEFUL.
Grateful that I stuck with it all year. Grateful that Andrew contributes. Grateful that I found this method that I can manage to keep my memory keeping up.
I love seeing my weeks at a glance. I love that I have a full year printed out (biggest accomplishment) and in the books. Even though I will go back and make big, event-specific books for some of 2013′s stories.
And I love that I have a framework that works for me for the future.
These are my Project Life spreads from November and December of 2013 …. 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.
(if you’d like to see the images larger, you should be able to click through to view them on Flickr)
These are JUST the full 2-page spreads. You can click through to the full gallery to see each page individually as well.
October 28 – November 3
Most of this week was slow, but we went to Phoenix over the weekend and it was REALLY full and busy! We drove out Saturday morning, and that night we went to see my dad play in his band at a coffee shop. All of his family was in town for a wedding the next day, so a bunch of out-of-towners came to that show too!
Sunday morning I took family photos for a friend of mine, and then Sunday afternoon we went to my cousin’s wedding before driving home that night! Busy busy busy!
November 4 – 10
Biggest news this week? Our niece was born and we celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary! SUCH a good week!
The blank card indicates where Andrew needs to complete his journaling about his recording session over the weekend.
November 11 – 17
This week was slow and at home most of the week, but on Saturday night I went with Andrew where he recorded a house show for our friend Max. It was really fun and I LOVE seeing Andrew work.
November 18 – 24
This was the final week of trying to find *someone* to come repair our roof. It was SUCH a pain.
Andrew went down to San Pedro over the weekend for another recording session while I stayed home and tried to clean up my office a bit.
This is also the week that Andrew’s record release – Sick Sick Birds – was released! Finally! After months.
November 25 – December 1
Thanksgiving week was SO full! We got our roof repaired, and Andrew had a recording session and Thanksgiving day at his sister’s and family over for dinner on Saturday night! No lull before the holiday season, for sure.
The rest of our December story is told in our December Daily album. It’s slightly unfortunate that my face got chopped up in the photo on the right, but it could be worse. I love using big 12×12 photos to indicate a story that is told in detail elsewhere (like this week we were in Colorado)
Supplies used these weeks:
- American Crafts 12-Inch by 12-Inch D-Ring Modern Scrapbooking Album, Cardinal
- Photo Pocket Pages – Big Pack of Design A (60 Pages)
- Seafoam core kit
- 100 Journaling Cards – 3″ x 4″ with Grid Design
- journaling cards of my own design
- assorted cardstock from my scrap pile
