a week in the life

So, I have decided to jump in and document A Week in the Life.
Initially I wasn't sure I'd have time to do this, but there are always ways to make time.
I feel like I haven't done the greatest job of recording the daily stuff that goes on around here so I'm excited to make a little book about the little and big things that we do around here over the course of this week.
I mean, it's spring and for some reason, it makes me enthusiastic about embarking on all kinds of new adventures. Like running. (But we'll talk about that another time. That's a different kind of adventure.)
I'm starting today (Monday) and will be taking photos of our life and jotting down notes through Sunday.
Later, I'll put everything together to make a little book. The book itself will be a gray Russell+Hazel mini three-ring binder from The Container Store. And I'm keeping all the little stuff together in my Liberty box from Target, for now.
I downloaded Ali Edwards' digi file for these journaling cards, only I needed to punk out the colors a little bit (they are normally gray and red) so I recolored them in Photoshop to suit my needs. I liked her idea to carry these around this week, so I printed and cut them out last night and will throw them in my bag in case I want to write something down during the day while I'm taking photos.
I hope you'll join in, too ... it's not too late and you can really start any day you like. Check back here through this week and next to see how I'm doing.


  1. I was just trying to figure out how to recolor the journaling blocks in Photoshop! Not sure how. I'm thinking maybe I'll just print in black on colored cardstock...
