With "Week in the Life" underway, I'm mostly focused on taking photos and writing notes to pull the album together. But I did take the time to put together Monday's pages in the album to get a sense of how the album is going to come together.
Last year's album was suuuuper time consuming to pull together. Lesson learned = if I make things too complicated, it may not get done. So as you may recall, the plan is for all hipstamatic pictures taken with my iPhone. For journaling, I'm doing a recap of each day, plus a spot for headline news. That's it!
My husband and I are NPR geeks; one of my favorite parts of last year's album is actually the news headlines so headlines are going on the back of the opening page for each day.
So far I haven't been gathering much paper memorabilia. A result of being at a cabin for two of the three days so far? Maybe? There are also more photos per day making their way into the album. So I guess this is the year of photos rather than memorabilia. I'm definitely okay with that.
Once the album is put together, I may go back and add some spray ink or more embellishment. But even if it stays as is, I do love how the photos and papers look together. So glad I decided to play along!
How is your week in the life project going?
