Project Life 2012: Weeks 51 and 52

WEEK 51

One of those weekly layouts I actually had to walk away from…and come back. It wasn’t coming together. I couldn’t make the title card work…and now, it’s one of my favorites. I love the red, blue, silver color combination. It was a crazy week: husband out of town, grading to be done and handed back to my students before the break, and general pre-holiday crazies:

Made sugar scrubs, I am slightly obsessed with them these days, for all the boys’ teachers:

And conquered the rope climb. Three times. Ridiculously proud of myself and LOVE that I am constantly being challenged and pushed. I am grateful for those who pushed me and inspired me to try Crossfit. I love it.

WEEK 52:

Christmas week: so much magic with the boys. The title card is another Whisker Graphics bag and houses the sweet little note Tyson snuck onto Santa’s cookie plate:

I apparently had a lot to say this week, super heavy journaling week…

Christmas Day is a mad rush for us, the majority of which is spent on the road. FOUR Christmas celebrations later, we were all exhausted but thoroughly loved and very grateful for our families. I used the Whisker Graphics bag to house four tags that detail each celebration:

THE DEETS:

I am so happy that I stuck with it and am looking forward to completing 2013. A few lessons learned this year, not much will change for next year.

* staying current with photos really helped me. I often ran about a month behind in terms of journaling and embellishing but was always current with photos.

* I learned to adhere and move on, versus constantly fussing and trying to get things to look perfect.

* I let the photos tell the story in a lot of cases versus journaling, this worked for me and allowed me to still journal a little (or a lot) depending on the situation.

* I love the attention Project Life places on the day to day, everyday moments that are often overlooked or forgotten…they, are in fact, a big part of our story.

Project Life 2012 is officially in the books…
