My Project Life Essentials

Honestly, I feel a little silly posting about how I do project life. This is my first year doing it, and we're only 10-11 weeks in. But as someone who resisted and even disliked project life in the past, I've been surprised at how easily I've fallen in love with it, and the process.

These are my project life essentials. If I have to pack up a small amount to create with, these things are what I would (and do) pack:
1. Chipboard shapes
2. Tiny attacher
3. Black journaling pens
4. Glue, scissors and tape
5. 4x6 and 3x4 cards
6. Wood veneer
7. Small alphabet stickers
8. Flair
9. Washi tape
10. Ink and date stamps
11. Sequins
12. Puffy stickers, enamel dots and bling
13. Labels
14. Diecuts, journaling spots, etc

Here are some sneaks from my week 7 weekly spread where you will see how I used a lot of the items on my list. 

I've got a couple of exciting weeks I need to work on in my album and I'm excited to work on them when I get the chance. I'll be back soon with my week 7 spread and inserts!

Project Life Week 6

Week 6 started with going to see the special release of the Frozen sing-a-long.  It was a great time... even if I was the only one in the theater singing.  But it was a sing-a-long gosh darn it, I was gonna sing!  We were also surprised with a quick visit from Grandpa John.  I went to the thyroid to start the process of getting my thyroid treated as well.

We enjoyed a special family night at the Raven Cafe for the monthly singer/songwriter night where Drew's student Caelen was performing his original songs and Drew played with him  We are so proud of him!  We spent time with Kristin and Gunner, I got my hair done and we partied at Ava's birthday party on Saturday as a family.  It was a fun time!

Project Life Week 5

Week 5 started out with a celebration of the birthday of one of my very favorite people, Jane Cheek!  It was a gorgeous day on the Brick & Bones patio full of music, friendship and celebration.  Such a great start to our week!

Some of the highlights of week five were spending my days with Vivi, wandering around town, being silly and of course, snuggling with her; family night Thai House; and spending some extra time to really get to Roslyn's level and understand her better as she is growing up.  It was a beautiful week!

We ended the week with a fun full day of cropping with friends for me, followed by going to the 7th anniversary of the Cheektones show.  It was a blast!
