Isn’t it funny how just when you get the hang of things, you’re almost done?
That’s how I feel about Project Life. I kind of meandered my way through this project in the beginning, not really sure how I wanted each week to look. If I wanted to make sure I captured a certain thing each week (like what we ate or a run down of things that happened that week) or if I just wanted to capture one or two stories. Or if I wanted more or less photos. Or more or less journaling.
Now, at 40 weeks, I have a better idea of how I want the pages to look. And I also know what I wished I had done.
I also can’t believe I maintained this project for almost an entire year. I thought for sure at some point I’d drop the ball. Or sporadically post random layouts from random weeks. But sitting down to put these weekly layouts together has become part of my routine. And it’s a routine I enjoy.
I’m bummed when I have weeks where I didn’t take many pictures (or many good pictures). But that’s life, no?
Yet putting these weekly pages together makes me think about my weeks in new ways. I like flipping back through my phone and downloading the pictures off my camera and remembering, “oh yeah, that happened.” It’s so easy to forget what goes on in our lives.
Are you going to take on a Project Life next year? I’m definitely in. And I think I’m going with Elise’s seafoam kit.
