Project Life 2014, Week 1 :: December 29 - January 5, 2014

Week of 1 of Project Life, 2014!

It's always so fun to start a new year of Project Life. I'm inspired with an empty album and excited to get the pages filled in. It's probably just the mental game that I am not behind yet for the year, but whatever it is, I'll take it.

A look at our week ... the overview.


On the left:


I was a little sparse on pictures as I was finishing up 2013 ... most good photos that I took, I wanted to include with the last layout of my 2013 album. This side of the page is therefore a bit random.
  • My 2014 calendar and what I was currently reading.
  • Some chicken enchiladas that were so good, they had to go in the album. Seriously. 
  • A photo from our New Year's Eve. Good friends hosted a karaoke party at our church and I didn't take one single picture. My sister sent me this one and it went in the album. Some guys (Travis is on the left and my brother-in-law is the one with his hand raised) were seriously rocking out to Born to be Wild.
  • The photo on the journaling card is Travis trying out his turkey deep-fryer for Sunday lunch with my extended family. Two thumbs up. 


On the right:
  • A sunset photo of the kids finally getting a chance to take a quick ride on their Christmas bikes. (After this, it has been so cold they have hardly gotten to ride them at all).
  • I'm in a picture! Travis snapped this at a fun celebratory lunch for my mom who retired on December 31. The grandkids, my sister, Travis and I all met up for lunch to celebrate and we got a surprisingly good photo of the whole crew.
  • I'm hoping for a Russian themed dinner on the night of the Olympic opening ceremonies in a few weeks. To that end, I made a test batch of cabbage rolls. The bright color of the cabbage as it cooked was just brilliant. I had to include it.
  • A 4x6 journaling card with a few thoughts on my birthday this year.
  • The journaling slot photo is a photo of an apron that was given to me over Christmas - it was Travis' grandma's and one of his aunts saved it to hand it down to me. 


A couple inserts for the week ... I printed out my two January blog posts on being intention{al} and slipped those in the album.


I'm pretty sure that all the cards were from the Blush kit in this layout. I think. : ) The photos on journaling cards were laid out in Tracy Larsen's simply white collection.
