Project Life!
The April edition, about four months too late but I've been busy. At the time, my parents were not home yet and I can not believe they will be leaving in two weeks for a short one month visit to Thailand. I was finally finding myself in April and truly getting over SP. The breakup was a rough time for me and as the months went on I got better, I met new people, I went on dates with new people. Looking back, I thoroughly believe everything happens for a reason.

I love the month inserts from Paislee Press. I have been trying to put them in the same position each month. I have also been using the same stickers for the months.

I have been trying to keep Project Life as simple as possible, not a lot of embellishments; just pictures and words. I haven't had time to really work on it like I did last year but I think I have fallen in love with the simplicity of the white space. I consistently use Tracy Larsen simply white photo templates with Keytin font 14. It has been my savior!

I really do love this project so much more. I love the idea of it being about my life this time, not "our" life because it's my work. I can't wait to look back and enjoy my youth. It's not just for adults with children, it can definitely be for young adults and teens.


  1. I just love your work! I keep telling myself that I'm going to focus on photos and words, and then I get side tracked with pretty paper patterns and before I know it, two hours have gone by in my dedication to cutting paper doilies and wash tape. :)

    Although I have a husband, I understand the part about documenting life without kids. While I can't wait to (hopefully) add my own children to my albums one day, I'm very much enjoying documenting my life as a young newlywed, and I LOVE it when I find other people taking on Project Life without kids! :)

    1. Thank you so much!
      I was exactly like that last year and I just couldn't handle the time anymore. I would much rather enjoy what I am doing than constantly stopping to take photographs.

      It's nice to find other people who don't have children and are just enjoying PL for themselves! :) I'm all about the dog-mom Project Lifers.
