Project Life

I'm holding my hand up and saying "I will try harder" ... yup, I'm jumping into Project Life again this year, but really hoping that I do better than in previous years.

It wasn't until the other day, when I got a text from a friend saying she would be interested in maybe doing project life and would like to know a little more about it. That I realised the only album actually finished was 2013! How dreadful is that.

2014 goes up to week 48

2015 ... well, that was much much worse. I did up until week 8 then it went to pot. I managed the odd week in the middle but that was about it.  All the photos are printed and put into their pockets but nothing else.

So this year! ... As part of my growth year, I'm taking a stand against faffing.  And I pledge now to get my act together and finish those two past years and try and keep up with 2016.


I've been good at writing down what happens each day, so at least that's something.  I'm not going to over think it either, as I have a plan! ... I know laugh, but I'm going to try my hardest to print out each week the previous photos and then get them straight in their pockets with cards.  Which brings me up to what I'm going to do today.  Sort through my project life cards and keep only those that I really think I need.  I'll hopefully share with you next time (or in a few posts) how I'm getting on.

There you have it! Lets see how I get on, shall we? Positive thoughts I think will be needed.

  1. I think anything is better than nothing, so the little bits you have recorded are still..recorded, and that's good. But I'm wishing you all the best with 2016. Even if you don't do every week, it doesn't matter.

  4. Good luck, I am right with you on this one. I am back into doing PL although I plan on just doing a couple of pages a month as opposed to weekly ones. xx

  5. This is why I couldn't do PL, I'd be so behind as I struggle to find time to scrap as it is. Lovely spreads though, I look forward to seeing more xx

  8. Well you've made a great start so keep it going! Sounds like 2014 is nearly done so think of the sense of achievement if you get those last 4 weeks done!

  9. Lovely start to 2016.
    If you have all the photos in your in-complete albums I'm sure you will be able to dip in and add the detail but don't stress over it as crafting is supposed to be FUN. Enjoy.

  10. What nice pages. Good luck with 2016, and I agree that anything documented is better than nothing documented.

  11. What a fabulous start to this year's album. I especially like that first photo of y'all! Best of luck with this project. I'm hoping to scrap more this year, keeping up a little each month. I did pretty good last year, but fell off about mid-year and need to get back to making layouts for that album, too.
