it's back.

my project life album.


i'm almost done. i have two more weeks to go and i'm finished. 

and it's awesome.

it's finding a permanent home on our coffee table.

b. loves looking at it.

i'll be honest.... it sort of became a labor of love over the past three months. i had done so good at keeping 'up' with it. for six months i had done it almost religiously.

but with the move, i got behind. and it got shoved into the back of my mind for a month and i never could quite catch up.

but here's the thing. the important note that i want all of you non-believers to read. 

i never caught up.

i just went with it. i kept trying to make it be exactly what it had been. a weekly thing. an 'accurate' time log. i wanted every space to be filled just like it had been the previous six months. 

but i didn't take any pictures for a month. a whole month. nothing on my phone. nada. 

so.... after many failed attempts, i just made one layout for a whole three weeks. i made it work. and the rest of it? it may not exactly be in the order it actually happened, but next year when i look back, will i care? when b. is in high school and i look back at 2011 will i care that the gingerbread houses took place a week ahead of when they're recorded in my book? will i care that this art project was really done in october and not november? hmmm.... i think not.

so - here are a few of my favorites. 

happy weekend! i'll share more tomorrow!!!!

  1. Yay!! Thanks for sharing. One question for you. Did you do all of your pages in the design A page protector. I was trying to decide if I wanted to mix mine up or use all the same. I take a lot of up and down pictures, so I'm not sure how that would work out with the layout you have. You're pages are great!!! Congrats on finishing it. I can't wait to get started on mine!!

  2. I just ordered my 2012 kit :) excited to get back on track! glad you did!!
