Good morning blog readers!
I am up with my very first blog post as a Creative Team member at Come on Get Crafty with Everyday Life, Documented!
I started Project Life out in 2013 and have always done 12×12, but in 2015 I decided it was time to change it up and switch to 6×8. I wanted a simpler approach, but I also wanted to document differently. Rather than trying to fill as huge spread with everything my family said or did on any particular week, I wanted to tell more pointed stories and I wanted to include more about myself. Kind of like a diary, without the lock and key ;). One that includes my family, but is more from my narrative. Talking more about how they fit into MY everyday life. At first I wondered if this was selfish, and then I remembered what the whole point of documenting was (for me). I want to tell stories. I want my family 100 years from now to be able to read what was going on in my life, from my perspective, and all the people in it.
Here’s what I had going on this week… let’s just say it could have started out better!
