Life and Outings, Memory Keeping

Project Life–Week 8

Did you notice I gave my blog a makeover a few weeks back? I have a confession… I don’t love it. In fact, the more I look at it, the less ‘me’ it becomes. I think it’s partly the formal looking black and white photo of me, and partly the white space. Don’t get me wrong, I love white space, but I may have simplified too much on this one.. something to ponder another day.

Let’s get to week eight.


This week was very much a recover from surgery week for me, so there weren’t a lot of events to include. The ones I had were bright and colourful which I felt was perfect for the new Amy Tangerine Plus One mini kit. I really love this kit. It’s not very ‘me’ but it works. I wish it were a larger kit to be honest as it is pretty versatile.


I used all my own handwriting this week and while I won’t pretend to have suddenly fallen in love with my writing, I can see that in time it will get better and come a bit more naturally to me. I used a Sakura Pigma Micron size 02 for the main slabs of writing and I’m pretty impressed with it. It turns out Col has a bit of a selection of excellent pens that happen to be perfect for journaling.

As much as I’m enjoying including an insert of Instagram pics each week, I may need to cease this practice so I don’t end up needing two albums for the year. I’m already starting to wonder where on earth I’ll store all these complete albums. I have plans to start Elijah’s first two years soon, as well as some holidays. Does anyone else think about future storage?

      Haha! I blurred Arty out, we can tell it’s him, but I doubt random people could.
