Project Life: Week Four - A Whole Month!!!

Woot!  I've gotten into a great rhythm with Project Life:  take pictures throughout the week, download sort through and edit them on Sunday, submitting my finalists to be printed at Target before I go to bed.  Then BabyT and I make our weekly trek to Target around 10am Monday morning, where we buy coconut milk yogurt, some soy milk, diapers and wipes as needed, and pick up our photos.
It used to include a stop at the Starbucks inside Target to get me a soy chai, but I'm not allowed those anymore on my recommitment to Paleo eating.

Each week, I think I don't have a story to tell, or enough good photos. Invariably I end up printing more photos than I need and have plenty to write about.  Ordinary details become worth recording when I keep up with it weekly.  I love it!  (Click photo for a bigger view)

Project Life, Creath 2012, Week 4

The last week of January was pretty run-of-the-mill.  We went to Little Gym, Ella came over to play (and share a gluten-free, vegan cupcake, which was about as tasty as it sounds), and we lounged around the house.  I finally made a bound book of our holiday cards

What I've noticed while doing Project Life is that by capturing the "ordinary", I'm painting an accurate picture of our day-to-day life.  Looking at the pages from the first weeks of the year, I'm reminded of stuff I'd ordinarily forget about.  I think that's pretty neat.

It's also reminded me on more than one occasion to ask TJ to get a picture of Trillian and me, since I'm always the one behind the lens.  I've also remembered to take my good camera with me on most outings, so I can get some nice shots if we have a chance (especially with the welcome winter sunshine we've had the past week!)

I've actually got Week 5 nearly done, but need to do the journaling and put the date marker card in.  I get to use some fancy paper this week as well, to commemorate our Valentine card-making and cookie decorating adventures.  It's funny how easily I can create a new habit if it's something I *enjoy* doing!


  1. Woot. That's awesome. It seems like this Project Life is fitting into your life nicely. Excellent news.

  2. @Jenn - I love it - it's so structured, which means for me, it's so easy!! But interesting because I can put in a little bit of creativity, too. I never knew I'd like it so much.


I love comments, so please leave me your thoughts. Thanks in advance!

sharing is nice
