Catching up on Project Life
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m really not enjoying being so far behind with my Project Life. I don’t take good enough notes throughout the week to enable me to remember the little moments and I feel that the layouts I’ve been doing recently don’t have the same depth as last years when I was so up to date that I included ‘song of the week’ among others. I have been racing to catch up though, and am now only three weeks behind which is a nice feeling.
It’s perhaps a bit self-indulgent to scrap photos of delicious hot chocolate (with peppermint crisp!) but I try to keep my albums ‘real’ and about the day to day life we live. I took up Project Life mainly to see the positives of every week at a time when I wasn’t really seeing them. When I look at my albums in ten, twenty years time I might laugh and roll my eyes, or I might be grateful for keeping the albums about the day to day.. who knows, but for now, hot chocolate photos it is.
Did you know the transfers on children’s underwear melts when you wash them on the baby cycle (95’C)? Now you do. Poor George.
I’ve long since given up the idea of blogging the backlog of layouts I’ve completed. Instead I’ve put them all on a (currently unpublished) page which I’ll publish once I’ve caught up. That way if anyone wants to see them, they’re available, but without putting the pressure on myself to blog them all.
I haven’t forgotten about that freebie that I said was on its way four weeks ago. I printed the cards out today to photograph for the blog post which is one step closer.
