As seen in Scrap365 Oct/Nov 2013 | Vol. II

The Oct/Nov 2013 issue of Scrap365 was a Project Life special and I contributed the PL-spread shown here. It might come as a surprise to you that I even have a Project Life, as I have never shown any of it here.

The honest fact is, that I don’t really have one. What I mean by that is that I started with one in October 2012 and that I did a fairly decent job documenting my life until at least two months into 2013 and then I just gave up. So… I have all the photographs (printed AND in the assigned pockets), I have all the stories, the memorabilia, the special PL-supplies… But I do not have a finished album.

I really like the concept of Project Life and I really like the fact that it’s a place to live for all the bits and pieces that I collect. But the harsh reality is that it turned me into a hoarder of random stuff and that it’s just way more work to keep it up than I’m willing to invest.

That said… I really love this spread and I remember that when I completed it, I really was motivated to go on with the weeks that followed. I didn’t, but now that this spread has come home, I am tempted to finish at least a couple more. If I do, I will treat them as a ‘Week in the Life‘ and just add them to my regular albums.

I also have a bunch of pocketed page protectors left. Thankfully not a years supply though! I have vague plans for those… And I will fill you in about those plans, when the time comes!
