project life | week 1 & 2

Jan 20, 2012

So I finished Week 1 and 2 but never had the time to upload anything because it was always so late. Taking pictures without natural light sucks. There is no better way to say it (haha) but it is the only time I have. After working all day, taking care of Fifa, and making dinner, the sun is almost gone and we have the lights on. I can not wait until the summer. It is starting to get cold and tonight it is supposed to snow a little, I won't lie. I am pretty excited about it. I just want one good snow storm and than I will be happy without it.

Oh and before I show my first 2 weeks, I took a decent picture of my little family. It's hard on a timer but we tried it.

A finished title page. I may change the picture of the 3 of us if I can capture a better one later.

A closer look at the three of us. Fifa is always fidgety so it's hard to get a picture of her staying still. But I really liked this.

Week 1.
On the left side I wrote all of my New Years Resolutions/goals. Most of my resolutions are more like goals for the year. I hope to complete them, I know a lot are going to be hard but I would at least like to try.

The right side has pictures of my roommates and I on our night out. Pictures of Steve with our first vegan pesto recipe, which came out amazing. And the 2 pictures in the corners are from our night with friends at Old Bay. I love my south Jersey friends and I love that they came up to visit. I used paislee press' photo layouts- I LOVE THOSE. I also added movie tickets from when Steve and I went to see Mission Impossible 4 in IMAX (so loud).

I used AC Thicker stickers and a stamp from the purple onion.

On the right side I found this quote from Jenny Meyerson's blog and I loved it. I am always a happy person and this is definitely for me.

Week 2.
More AC Thicker stickers for the "week 2." A picture of me holding my new Starbucks "blonde" mug. I love how pretty and bright it is. Steve and I went to Blue Fish Grill for dinner one night, he tried to do a green smoothie diet and it only lasted 3 days. BFG broke the habit with veggie burger tacos. Yum! The first journal card was from my boss at the animal hospital, a holiday bonus, he always calls me a pain in the ass even though he wishes I could work there more haha. Danielle was one of my "photo of the day" pictures and I really liked it so I added it. The photo next to hers is of my coworkers at my full time job: Eddie, John, Saga. We like the saying "that's what she said" because we're immature sometimes.

I added a middle insert, I journaled on a 4x6 Ali Edwards digital layout. I went out with friends to a comedy show that another friend was hosting. We had such a great time that I felt it deserved it's own page.

More photo layouts from paislee press :)

I used some journal cards to do a "Weekly Recap." I won't do that for all of my weeks, but I do like the idea so I will do it occasionally. Fifa pictures of Steve messing with her and her toys, she's so funny. Another picture of Steve holding my boards up for my cupcake pictures. He's great! Blitzburgers for lunch on Friday for Eddie's going away party, not a great veggie burger.. sadness.

So far this is my first 2 weeks! I hope you like them! I will work on taking pictures during the day so there is no more glare and with my DSLR so it comes out more clear. More classes are coming so I don't know how much time I will have :(

  1. Love the photo of the three of you together! I have a placeholder on my title page as well. You're making me wish I got the cobalt kit instead of clementine. I print out my cobalt cards more than I use my clementine kit! lo!
