Project Life 2016 | Week 41-44 2016

Ok, I am just continuing with the last spreads of our Project Life album 2016. Did you know that 2016 was the 5th year in the row I have documented every single week in the Project Life format? 

 Week 41: What did I say about those autumn colors, right?! The whole world changes with the fall colors of nature and I guess I get so inspired by it that it pours into my creative projects ;) This was the week of my father´s death. I first didn´t think that I would be able to make something for this week. But I know from experience that I loved being able ro read my own words from very special and hard weeks that I did it anyway. 

Week 42: I guess that this week it did show how life stopped a little bit after my father´s passing. I didn´t take all that many photos and the ones I did take was more of what made me feel a little lighter. 

Week 43: Ok, so this was the week of my dad´s funeral. It was held on Friday, so I chose to just add photos to the right hand side of the spread. I haven´t journaled about it to this day, but my daughter wrote a beautiful blog post about her feelings, so I printed it out and I think I will just leave it with that. 

Week 44: The left hand side of the spread is of course the back side of the spread before, so for that I used a page protector that held those old floppy disks, remember those?, and they really do have 6 square pockets, but I trimmed the outer 3 off to make them 3x4" to add in cards. The square images shown here are digitally made and just printed out to fit the pocket. I don´t do that very often, but felt like playing a bit. 

What are the hardest thing you have had to document?

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 :)
