Project Life - Week of January 23 - 29, 2012...

With each new week I am learning things about Project Life. I can't get over how much fun it is, trying to capture little details of our everyday life! This week again, I tackled it a little at a time, as the week evolved, and then at the end of the week, I added the finishing touches and journaling.

Here's my spread for January 23 - 29 (click on image to enlarge)...



Closeup of left side...
This week I worked a lot on developing my new system for keeping track of both my work and personal life. The "think, create, record" bit was a sleeve around one of the new journals I bought at Target for the aforementioned system. :0) The wolf/peace collage is a photo of an art journal page from the week. The bottom left corner is a piece of a Papaya Art Calendar, with alpha stickers attached to spell dream. They were red, so I colored them black with a sharpie.

Highlights here are Michael's handwriting on the little brown bag with the purple napkin stitched in. It's a personal reminder for him of a special memory of the week. In the top right corner is an email from Renee that I wanted to remember. It's about attending a special retreat in September. More to come on that. I cut a piece of a calendar photo to create the 4x6 backdrop. My fave photo of the week is the black and white of Willie. It captures the peaceful feeling that surrounded our whole week.

I'm absolutely in love with Project Life. To find out more about it, click here.

Now I'm off to start on Project 12 for January. I've been struggling with how to incorporate Project 12 into my Project Life album; but I have an idea. I will let you know how it works out! For more info on what Project 12 is, click here to go to it's creator's blog - Davinie Fiero.

Thanks for visiting and for your comments. I really appreciate them!

What a neat surprise to find your blog as I'm checking out PL--Julie's artsy PL got me on this bandwagon, and I'm in her stamp class as well. I had seen and admired your red chevron...love the way you incorporated it into your project life!

Oh, I enjoyed looking at this week. I think it was meant for me to read it. I had a worker at the grocery store come collect my shopping cart and we exchanged casual talk, but then out of the blue she said "have peace." Okay...you think this is a message to me or what?!

I might have to look into your system more...

The pictures, the labels, the little details...this really inspires me. I don't know which is my favorite. But I do really love that handwritten note by Michael...simple reminders...love that.

I need to put Archie in mine more and just started snapping his picture.

Hope you've had a good week, Michelle! Thanks for sharing your PL and your life!

Wow this Project Life is so inspiring! LOVE how you've incorporated panting and collage- I keep meaning to do that in mine but right now I just want to try to keep in the swing of things. This is definitely one of my faves so far! The color and typography alone make it a joy to see!
