I haven't written in a little over a year.
But that year, 2014, was one of the most exciting of my life yet, the most difficult in some aspects.
I fell in love... shortly after my disappearance to the man of my dreams in which has taken me on a journey to say the least.
I continued crafting through it all but my running had subsided in 2015, I'm hoping to change that.
I haven't finished my 27th year PL book, but I'm only short a few mere weeks.
Conquered December Daily though, and ditched the "age year" concept of Project Life; now I started my 2015 monthly book.
I wanted to show you how I have it set up so far.
This year I'm using a 6 x 8 book because I found the 12x12 hard to fill, and I love this 2x2 pocket protector that my friend Patti sent me. I wanted to use it in a special way so I thought my cover page would be perfect. I found similiar ideas on pinterest and wanted to use gold- as I can't part with any of my gold papers. They are so pretty!
Anyways, on to how I set it up- I'm using two protectors for each month. Every other month being 1 6x8 sheet and 1 (4) 3x4s; than the next being 1 (2) 3x4s (1) 4x6 and 1 (4) 3x4s sheet. I also have sold a lot of my PL kits as I've lost interest in basically all of them- so this year, I decided to use my stash up. This was an easy way to use a lot of those cut apart sheets you need to buy but not sure how to use.
I actually have a lot of the month's papers already cut out and placed in the pockets. I learnt with December Daily that I love having it sort of started for me- takes a lot of the guess work out for me! This month I started with my Maggie Holmes Open Book papers / stickers. I have yet to journal on the first page - dang marker dried up on me. I guess that means I'll have to shop soon?
To summarize the page; the first picture is my handsome man cleaning off the car- we finally got a good snowfall so I had to capture it. Then one of our days off we had together, we spent it playing Scrabble- our 7 month year old kitten decided - he too, must play so I took pictures of him attacking and eating the scrabble pieces.
Our kitten just adores my boyfriend/his daddy, he loves spending every minute by his side so he loves climbing up on to his shoulder and they go walking around the house to high places in the house. We also spent one Sunday with our group of new friends watching the football playoffs- I thought this captured everyone's emotions perfectly. And I decided that as much as I love to scrapbook and run; I also love to pay the bills- I felt I needed to contribute more to my little family and should get a second job. So I took a sort of selfie one day after work.
I finally had a man to kiss at midnight, although we both worked that day- we managed to stay up. Maybe some liquid was helping with that. But I had to take a selfie of us dorks on New Years Eve. I've also been doing really awesome with trying to get work outs in, not as good as I could be but it's the most I've ran in months. So I captured a screenshot of a quick run I did on a warm day before work. Also our little boy finally got fixed, doesn't he just look thrilled?
That's my lovely book so far, but I'll definitely be checking in more frequently with updates of scrapbook pages and work outs. I can't believe I've abandoned it thus far!
Let me know what you guys think, and also, what are you guys working on right now? Anyone else starting a Project Life for 2015??
