Project Life 2013 | Closing the first album of the year

As of week 25 I start a new album to hold my Project Life spreads. The first album could have hold a week or two more, but I wanted to start a fresh one at week 25 since it is my first week of summer vacation. 

As I looked through my first album of the year I got thinking about what I have saved in there. Here are a few of the things. 

Captured real life | I captured the hard stuff, the real stuff. I am so happy that I still did it, even though life felt upside down.

Documented stuff that made me happy | A fresh haircut, baking, paying bills, happy mail and sunshine.

My daughter´s photos + words | I have been extra careful and mindful about including her this year.

Work stuff | Since I do spend quite some time at work, I have included photos and storiesabout/from work.

A new relationship

Creative stuff | I have documented screenshots of blogposts, my latest pins on Pinterest etc.

School related stuff | Since I am a single parent I have had to deal with all the parent-teacher meetings, homework and other school stuff.

Family related stuff | births, birthdays, milestones and meetings.

My new love´s photos + words | I have also included my new love´s photos and words at times. It is fun to have other voices in the album.

Garden 2013| I have documented what we have planted, growth both inside and outside. I love going back to see those tiny seedlings that are now big plants in our veggie garden!

And these are just the stories that pop out at me when I go through my album! I love it!

Memory keeping | Autumn TN 02

If you´d like to see my first few pages in my Autumn mini, just click here

I am still working away in my Autumn travelers notebook. I have enjoyed to add bits and pieces and stories about some of my favorite things about fall. I will go on in November and then start my annual Christmas mini at the start of December. 

Quotes are one of my favorite things to include in my memory keeping projects, so it is no suprise that I have quite a few in here. 

I will use most of the remaining pages for my 30 day gratitude project that I do every year with the grand finale of Thankgiving at the end of the month. 
I have a question, if you are one who makes traveler notebooks, how do you store them when they are done?

Memory keeping | December mini 2016 - 6 past favorites

Three years ago, when my fiancĂ© and me celebrated our first December together, I started a December minibook. It´s a 6x8 binder from Simple Stories with pocket pages. I decided that I´ll have three years worth of December memories in this mini. So this year marks the last one being documented in this book. I am not doing anything daily (as in the December Daily project that Ali Edwards do) and since I do Project Life every week this album is all about our December traditions and sometimes I do have double recordings, but for me it is all ok. What I have felt special about working in my December mini is that I go all in with glitter, cheesy wordings etc. It´s fun! I fitted 3 years of Decembers in one album and this year I am getting a new album, but will still do the same thing.

Today I thought I´d share a few favorite pages and elements from the past 3 years before I start the new album.

1. I really like that I have included the things I have been inspired by every year. I take a screen…

Kellie Stamps CT 2016 | November

I'm so happy about the re-release of two alpha sets this month from Kellie Stamps! Slim Jim is a set I use all the time for all kinds of projects. 

Here is a new page I did for the re-release.

I've been so inspired by fellow team member Diane and her awesome traveller notebooks lately. She often creates backgrounds using her alpha stamps, so I lifted her and made this background for my layout. I very rarely use any other color than black to stamp with, but after using this blue/teal Ink I may have to start. 

Since my love is worse in his MS his wheelchair is a must. We are that couple that hold hands a lot and that is something I miss. But when the road is a tiny bit downhill we totally hold & roll :)
