I Am A Project Lifer

I embarked on this Project Life journey this year, together with some of my crafty friends.

I love scrapbooking and I love documenting stuff, stuff that means a lot to me. Although I do blog, some things are just too routine and too vague to warrant a blog post by itself. So what do I do? I just document it in my Project Life (PL) 2013 album.

There are basically no rules for Project Life. You can do it daily, or weekly, or monthly, or whenever you please. You can fill it with lots of photos, or lots of words. Really, it is all up to you.

So for my own Project Life, I document the everyday things. Through Project Life, I weave a story of my life, my kids, my food etc out of the ordinary routine everyday stuff. I do it based on weekly spreads. Most of my weekly spreads are 2 pages long. Some weeks I have more things to document so I add on inserts.

I haven't really talked about my scrapbooking stuff in my blog. Not because I don't want to, but mainly because I don't have the time to blog about them.
But this year, scrapbooking layouts and cards have taken a backseat, because I'm mostly doing Project Life during my crafting time. And I'm loving it.

So here are my spreads of my PL from Week 1 to Week 15.

Warning: Photos overload!

My main page:

Week 5 is a longer week, so I added on inserts in between my 2 pages, and it was all about my birthday. :)

 PL Week6
Week 6 was a week full of activities because is was CNY week, thus additional inserts. ;)

 PL Week7

PL Week 8

PL Week 9

PL Week 10

PL Week 11

PL Week 12

PL Week 13

PL Week 14

PL Week 15

As you can see, most of them are about both my kiddos. What to do? They play such a big role in my life now.
I take photos of them all the time, even when they are sleeping, or making funny faces, or even just doing nothing. They are my obsessions, in a way. :D

I am only doing until Week 17, and I've still got about 9 weeks to catch up.  But all is well. I'm on a roll lately so I'm gonna catch up real soon.

Doing Project Life makes me happy.
Documenting and creating using beautiful papers. Life is indeed beautiful.

Ok, that is all for now.
Happy creating!
