Truth : My 2013 Project Life album is missing 24 weeks. TWENTY FOUR. I have to admit that I've avoided counting because I really didn't want to know, but I finally went ahead and did it. Will I catch up? Probably not 100%. I'll combine some weeks. I'll skip others. I love what I have, so I'm still considering the year a win.
I've taken that as a cue to shake up 2014 significantly. I'm moving to a monthly style with smaller pages (I'll be mixing 9x12, 8.5x11 and Handbook page protectors). I want to record more random things, like movies we're watching and books we're reading and recipes we're loving. Our daily lives have changed a lot since I started Project Life® in 2011, and it's time for me to approach it differently. I'll be starting in on January soon, and I'll share more about my process then.
I'll still be using the Studio Calico kits, despite the shake up in format. And you'll still see plenty of traditional 2pg 12x12in spreads from me, thanks to those 24 missing weeks. ;)I've even got one to share today - I used the Studio Calico Sugar Rush kit to fill in my birthday week. It seemed like a perfect use of all that pink! =)
It's funny - I initially put this week up because I knew it had a lot of photos and a lot of memorabilia. Those two factors made it come together super quick! I am glad I waited on it, though, because that pink striped cake was perfect for my birthday!
If you're a PLer shopping at Studio Calico today, I wanted to point out that the "more grid cards" are back - YAY! These are a staple in my PL stash. You can grab them in 4x3in or 4x6in. (Or, if you're like me, you can grab a couple packs in both sizes!
*note : if you're not a Studio Calico subsciber, the links to Sugar Rush will not work until midnight EST.
