Week 2 - Project Life & FREEBIE!

You can tell I'm back at work by the lack of blogging right...hehehe. I tell ya during the week I am soooooo tired at night, but hey then there is the 4 day weekend to look forward too =).

I was a little tardy in getting my Project Life -Week 2 together but that was in part due to reading several blogs of how others are organizing photos, notes, etc. I decided to follow suit and get myself organized as well, I am determined to stay on track with project life so anything that will make this easier is a winner in my book.

Whenever I take a photo or two and load them onto my computer, they usually go in a folder called unsorted. I then tag the photos before moving them to their proper folder. Inside this unsorted folder I now have folders for each week i.e. week 1, week 2 etc., this will definitely speed up the process of finding photos for layouts. Loving this idea so far!

I bought -a week to a page diary -to make notes in, plenty of room to jot down important thoughts or just what I am feeling at that time. I am not so worried about forgetting things when I sit down to create a page now. Good idea number 2!

I have also decided to pop the extra bits and pieces like ticket stubs, receipts etc. into plastic bags labeled with the week dates ready for scanning. I am not sure if I will scan everything or create a pocket to attach to the corresponding pages, I may even do both. As I am in two minds I can see this will be a process that will evolve over time but I'm not going to limit myself by making any hard and fast rules. Project Life is meant to be simple, easy and fun to do...right!!!

Now for my week two pages...

and the FREEBIE I mentioned? I love quotes so I can see each week there will be a quote or phrase somewhere on a page and figured I would share my little creations.

DOWNLOAD HERE! Just a couple of little journal cards, one 6x4 and one 3x4, as always
(Downloads available for a short time only)
enjoy :)

Have a great day!
