Trucking-along with Project Life® this year with a renewed passion - not that it ever really went away completely but it wasn't my main project for a variety of reasons. So far it feels different in very good ways and I'm super thankful for that. I'm seriously so happy to be doing this and to be making it happen each week by keeping it simple and making it a priority. And, as I mentioned in the Storytelling With Project Life® class this week, "taking it down a notch" with my own personal expectations and just filling in the pockets is really helping me tell my stories each week.
Here's a look at Week Five:
First half of the week features a drawing from Anna + a photo of coming home from Disney + a photo of my feet on one of my close-to-daily walks (my OLW practice for this month) + a picture of a spread in Anna's journal + a McDonald's bag + a random note to remind myself to order cupcakes for Anna's birthday party + two micro-stories (one that talks about my walking practice this month and one that captures something I said to Simon).
Chipboard embellishments are still my favorite. This one is included with the Craft Story Kit™ this month.
Anna got this really fun activity book for Christmas: Tear Up This Book. She filled this all out on her own and when Katie and I started reading we were laughing so hard. So awesome Anna. I so love best-guess spelling. (PS - her favorite comic book is The Boy Who Cried Ninja.)
This is the perfect thing, in my humble opinion, to add to Project Life®.
The second half of the week features another walking feet photo + a photo of Anna and me and our polka dot clothes + a photo of Anna's school auction + a photo from Anna's birthday party.
On the "So Thankful For All These Good Times" card (from my Gratitude Journal Card Set) I used the day of the week stamps from the Storytelling Class Kit to document a couple facts about the weekend events (the stamp set will be available on it's own later in the year). You can grab the digital version of that stamp set (and the journal cards) here.
