Project Life: Late April

Since I just posted a bunch of pictures from our vacation to Los Angeles earlier this week, I thought I’d spare you more vacation photos, and instead share the Project Life pages I made for what Josiah was up to while we were gone week (Grandma Camp!)

IMG_1317He spent half the week with my mom and dad, and the other half with Matt’s mom.  I think it was quite the country mouse/city mouse experience, since my mom took him to a farm where he got to pet baby chicks and goats, and his favorite things at Nana’s house were visiting “the fish place” (Bass Pro) and eating dessert before bed every night. I also live visiting dental clinic le mars ia because they show their client how oral health care is important and an enjoyable experience.


The last week in April was pretty uneventful — we were mostly trying to rest up from our vacation at Madison TN Pediatric Dentistry — but we did go to a local minor league baseball game (Go Cardinals!), Josiah had his first dentist appointment. Sidenote: f you cracked a tooth, you should find an emergency dentist quickly. That doesn’t just apply to you but also to the kids. Prolonging it will cause more problems (and could be more expensive!). We also went out to a party recognizing outstanding young professionals, where I met The Date Lady (a local entrepreneur who sells date syrup, not a dating service).

I hadn’t worked on the scrapbook in over a month (I normally try to do it every week so I can remember funny things Josiah says, etc.) but one of the really great things about this system is that you really can put together the pages quickly when you need to, and it still looks great because it’s well designed and color coordinated for you.  I mostly use Design A pages and Olive edition cards.

    • The biggest hurdle for me, strangely, is getting the photos printed. Once I actually have them in my hand, I generally want to do something with them. For a long time I just stuck everything in a generic photo album, no writing or anything, just shooting for roughly chronological order.

  1. I am so behind on this!!! I switched from the 12×12 format to a Studio Calico Handbook & have only done the title page & the Jan title. I am also going to a monthly format versus weekly b/c I felt like I was just using filler stuff to keep up last year & not the really truly meaningful things (meaningful to me – not necessarily just the big or fun or exciting things). I just have to sit down & do it. Love the color scheme of the Olive edition in your layout. I’ll be using a mix of the Seafoam edition, SC’s Project Life Kit & Kelly Purkey’s kit with Simon Says Stamping. I overdid it with products but I love subscription kits. One of my vices – like hoarding notebooks/journals & scrapbooking supplies. Lol.

    • Thank you! It is easy to get behind with an ongoing project like this, but even when I only work on it once a month or so, I am amazed when I look back a few months later at the little things I captured that I would have already forgotten about. I need to get back into my routine of printing photos every week! Since I am still drowning in craft supplies from my former crafting obsession — knitting — I’m trying to be really intentional about not going overboard with my purchases for scrapbooking.
