Project Life 2015 and plans for 2016

I didn’t think I would finish it this year as I’ve become  disinterested with the 12×12 format, and as my photos piled up and up I felt overwhelmed.

Project Life Week Two

Yes, week two! I’ve fallen a little bit behind because my attention has been focused on decluttering the house and repainting our bedroom. The painting is done, but the tidying and sorting is still a huge work in progress. I did make some time to start catching up on Project Life, because if I get too far behind I can see myself not bothering to catch up, and I’ll regret that later! For week two I fell back to a style I’m most comfortable with, which is labels, underlined  ...
