Just Life

project life 2013 | weeks 5 & 6.

…it feels pretty good to have the week that ended just two days ago already done. too soon to say for sure, but printing everything myself might be the way to go.

First, though, week 5, which ran January 27 – February 2 (with photos I printed at Costco). It was a full and busy week, with plenty of “stuff” in addition to the photos.
I smiled when I saw that weather snap; that was the week I smugly blogged about no winter blahs. When it’s 60-some degrees in January, no blahs allowed.
The requisite Downton Abbey “photo”.
And the start of Month of Letters (along with a piece of the CABi catalog from the “party” I attended Saturday afternoon.
And then on to week 6, February 3 – 9. The big story about this week is the knitting (which I shared in two blog posts last week).
And a little Superbowl story. Love that Rob put together a game so we’d pay attention to THE game (I still fell asleep…) and then Katie made a spreadsheet to track the scores. And I have to laugh at how poorly I did.
I snagged a screen shot of the spreadsheet, pulled it into PSE to resize and print on a 4×6 index card; added the orange date, journaling and stamp to the printed card.
This postcard from my mom arrived early in the week. Love that she responded to our Ten on Tuesday about what’s in our cars (how different her list is from mine!)
…and there you have it. I’m still not using those Core Kit journaling cards like I wanted to. But otherwise, I’m good with it. I’m really seeing a difference in the amount of time it takes (week 6 was under four hours) without sacrificing much on the content and overall “feel”. because that leaves more time to live the stories, not just tell them!
