Project Life + Valentines Day

Project Life Valentine's Day

Wow! Two posts in one week! I'm on a roll!

One of the things that I love about Project Life
is that I can add whatever elements and papers
that I want to my project. I am currently using the
turquoise edition for my Project Life but I like
to change it up a bit to. For Valentine's Day this year
LOVE LOVE LOVE this collection! It can be used
for many different things other than Valentine's Day
which is exactly why I bought it! I also used
I really like how the pages turned out and that they
were a touch different then the rest of the book :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Project Life - Weeks...well a lot of them

Project Life
I have been struggling a bit.
I work full-time and I do not take my camera with me to work
so I rely on my iPhone for most of my pics from 9-5 Mon-Fri.
Unfortunately, I get super busy at work and forget...
Then I get home thinking to myself no worries i'll take a bunch of pics of Jake
tonight when I get home...

Well...this is a typical night at home...
Race in the door from work, pee, stuff food in my mouth,
fight with my son for two hours over homework,
spend another 1 1/2 doing said homework,
throw in a load of laundry,
spend another 1/2 hour to get Jake in the shower,
go through the mail, walk the dog,
stay up late for "me time", then finally crash.

Doesn't make for a lot of stuff to put in my Project Life book :(
So I end up scrambling to take a bunch of pics in what seems like
a limited amount of time just to have something to add to each week.
BUT...I have been doing it and I am EXCITED that I have been doing it.
I realized just recently that putting the good, the bad and even the ugly
(homework nights!) in Project Life is really our true story.
It's real life and twenty years from now it will still be real and I will love it!
So if you are struggling to take pics NO WORRIES...fill it in with other things...
In the big scheme of things what you do add you will cherish in twenty years from now.
I know I will...

So here is SEVERAL (long overdue) weeks worth of Project Life!
Oh and another struggle I have...
Taking pics of each of the weeks that I have done...
I have the crappiest lighting in my house and I can NEVER get a good shot
but I'm winging it...So here goes :)

So I will leave you with these and hopefully
I will be able to stay on top of the upcoming weeks.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!
Thanks for stopping by :)
