Just Life

project life weeks 21 and 22.

…yep, this is it – all caught up! week 21 was a big one and that took a little extra time, but thanks to marc having a meeting tonight, I finished it…and week 22 (last week!). I do love the process of this project, but I especially enjoy the moments of being finished. with a project that continues, that finished feeling is always fleeting, so I’m savoring four more days this week before the next “deadline”.

I’ve read about folks who do their pages throughout the week, but so far, that hasn’t been me. I collect photos and stuff…and then once the week is done, I comb through it to see what I have, how it works (together), etc and decide how I want to layout the week.
left side + front of 6×6 – week 21
back of 6×6 + right side – week 21

for this week, I had a few large momentos and a lot of smaller ones. that 6×6 divider (page design E) was the perfect solution for the larger elements (I decided last week that I would let the back of it be simple patterned paper…and I still deliberated for a good 20 minutes tonight on which papers would go where!)

here are close-ups of two of those 6×6 windows.
lower left. this is the 2nd package I’ve received from ravelry and I was determined to put that fabulous graphic into the album!

upper left. cutout of the paper bag from our takeout and photostrip with paislee press’ snapshot frames (LOVE these!!)

last week (week 22) was another biggie in terms of LIFE. sara moved out. I cooked.

week 22 full spread
I used two layout A’s because they worked…and I definitely used more journaling to tie it together.  one of my goals with this project is to use my own handwriting…those journaling cards help. 
two fun details. first, thursday night at sara’s (yes, “at sara’s”. wow!)
parking is a real bummer…especially when it runs out before we’re ready! we ate at sara’s coffee table. glass-topped. practical!

and then… the grocery shopping and cooking I did.

kroger receipt documenting “real groceries” alongside a note about what I cooked. maybe someday me cooking won’t be so momentous!

    good job. smart move taking advantage of a "free" evening to knock this out. i spent tuesday evening entertaining sophie by hitting the tennis ball with a golf club-AND NOTHING ELSE?! Thursday night will be mine- ALL MINE! (insert evil cackle)

    Ah! Just think how fondly Sara will look at these pages and recall her first days in her own place! I'm sure you'll miss her but now you can go over to "her kitchen " for cooking lessons! Ostensibly! ;-)).

    Isn't PL fun…and I just love the use of our own handwriting on the journaling cards. Love this 21st C version of the 19th C scrapbook.

    Thx for sharing.
    Cheers~
