Week In The Life™ 2024 | Special Guest Laura Wonsik

Hello ,story crafting friends! It's Laura Wonsik here and I'm excited to share my completed 2024 Week in the Life album along with a few thoughts about my experience this year.

This was my 8th year completing this project and if you catched the Instagram Live where I chatted with Ali, you might remember me sharing how much more relaxed I have become about this project than when I started. The chronology isn't perfect and not every story is told- imperfect and messy just like my life.

One thing that I find very helpful in pulling together large project albums like this is having a repeated formula that I am flexible about. It's nice to have a structure and it's also nice to feel "allowed" to break that structure. 

All of the days include the same basic elements in whatever order makes sense for that days' stories. I particularly liked having the 3x8 filler card from the main kit as a home for photos that would have otherwise taken up a lot of space in the album. 

This project is such a great stash buster. Ali has so many products that support everyday storytelling, so I always easily find filler pieces to help this project come together.

Some of my favorite photos of all time have come from this project. We often pull out the camera during "special events." But, there's an ease and relaxation that shines through in photos from everyday life. I'm all about photos of the kids in pajamas on a hammock.

Sometimes I capture moments I didn't even intend to capture. I snapped this photo of my daughter taking the dog out and my little one was tasting the raindrops. Oh, to have that childlike sense of wonder again.

I love the invitation to get in front of the camera in this project. I would love photos of my mom in everyday life as a child.

So much of our life is lived online, so why not screenshot some of those pieces? I play the NYT games everyday, I Marco Polo regularly and I love capturing text screenshots.

I love capturing snippets of my husband's day as well. 

It's very helpful to have "stock photos" that I keep in my pocket for when the flow of the album needs a certain size photo. I took photos of my current beauty products, my earrings, my closet and some shots of my office to fill in as needed.

It's always a fun experiment to see what will happen when you put the phone down and set a 10 second timer. 

This photo was an unintentional candid moment- I was trying to get a photo of myself cutting fabric and my daughter interrupted- what a perfect "interruption!" 

I'm so thankful for this project and the way it helps me celebrate, reframe and savor the everyday moments of my life.

Thanks for following along with my story and I hope you enjoy the process of putting together your album!

    awesome job as always! I'm a big fan of bonus photos that I can plug in. Trying to decide on my photo formula- but did create a main journalling page for each day. Then I'll just add notes for additional comments per pic.
