First off, I am so thrilled to be joining the Project Life Creative Team! Being on this team is a huge honor and I'm so thankful to Becky for making it happen. I'm really looking forward to sharing some inspiration in my own way with this project this year. I'm excited about the whole adventure.
When I sat down to work on my first week I just kept to my mantra of making it work for me. I pin a lot of things for inspiration (there are just SO MANY cool albums being shared) but when it came time to put everything together I just did whatever I wanted to do without worrying about a single thing. (I am still doing my Project Life - Year 29 album so most of the memorabilia I save is for that one. This may change after my birthday, I'm not sure yet.)
Both Week One and Week Two are single page spreads - I know the majority of PLers do double page spreads but I hadn't taken a ton of photos and wasn't going to force myself to make these weeks stretch. We'll see what happens next week.
The main thing about these two weeks was that I was that my relationship with Adam ended. My Project Life was just not going to be how I'd envisioned it, but that is life and I documented it. Well, maybe I wallowed for a bit and then got out of bed and documented it.
Each day in Week One seemed very important and I included a little round-up. I'd also spent an incredible amount of time with my nose in the Steve Jobs biography that week, so it obviously had to be represented. I scanned the front of a the Playbill from RENT that Adam and I had gone to see. The FAIL was that it was a disappointing show.
Week Two was a sad week that I didn't want to document but I also needed to be honest about what was happening in my life. And still a lot of good things happened that week... I have really great friends who helped with that. I included a Twitter conversation between Amanda and me, my Facebook status celebrating my new apartment, and a little snatch of an email from Jennifer that meant a lot to me. Thank you, friends and Internet.
In between the spread I added a 8x8 page protector with some of my favorite Instagram photos on one side (I am taking a photo-a-day thanks to Nicole's class!) On the other side I cut down a doggie bag from Red Rooster then journaled a little bit about how Amanda came through for me and we went out for a silly 10 o'clock dinner.
