week in the life

a week in our life – update

july/august feels so far away. like it was a hundred years ago. but really, it wasn’t that long ago. only 3 months ago i was a crazy photo snappin’ fool for 7 whole days. you can see the week’s worth of photos here.

i needed some time away from it all after that. we all got burned out on pictures. the boys asked me not to take pics of them anymore. i didn’t even want to pick up the camera. i didn’t want to convert and upload one more file.

but something happened a couple weekends ago. i think it was a post on ali edwards’ facebook page, showing off the album of lynette at nettio designs. it was clean. it was simple. it screamed magazine layout and i was smitten. after spending, oh…about 5 minutes looking at her album, i knew it was the design i had to go with. the ones i came up with during the week process were going to be fine. but i was trying too hard. putting too much on it. adding too much unnecessary stuff and it just never felt right. this was it.

so that weekend i started fresh. using digital templates i purchased from cathy zielske, i started making friday’s layouts. i felt amazing and freer to just use pictures. the pictures i loved. that after 3 months of separation, remembered how much i adored what i captured during that week.

it’s a long process, to add the pictures and the journaling. but we’re getting there. i have friday, saturday, sunday and monday almost done. basically the layout and words and photos are in their correct spots, but i still have to go back to proofread and double check details.

but i really wanted to share them with ya. ya wanna see what i have so far?


 

 


great start right? i’ve had so much fun getting this project done. goal? finished by the end of november so my december daily can be easy without this project lingering.

when i get the rest done…i’ll post another update. and then i have to figure out how to bind it. sometimes options can be a pain. =)

happy wednesday to you!
