This week has flown by. I am so glad I took part in Week in the Life, not just because I really enjoy taking pictures and creating album layouts, but because I know when I look back on this next year, or even in 10 years time, the images and stories told will reflect us at this moment in time.
This week has also improved my journalling. My Project Life spreads contain little explanations of the images, I just assume the images tell the story for me, but this week I have tried to focus on why I have taken a certain picture, not just because the dog was looking cute, or my shoes got muddy – but what does it say about my life right now.
Today i ate some cake which my mom bought round on Saturday. I do love cake.
Today i finally labelled my Project Life and #myselfiescapbook albums
Things I will do differently next year:
Remember to capture when i go out and about – this week I visited the supermarket twice, all I have is one blurry photo of the stuff on the checkout as I forgot to take the image I really wanted of the basket.
Blogging has really helped me remember the stories behind the images, but I would like to make better use of Ali’s WILT daily sheets and plan the layouts as I go along.
Next year I would really like to do this project during the school months to document a more typical week in the life and be able to compare it to this year to see how routines change.
Now to complete the album!
