I saw on Ali Edwards' blog last week that she was doing this project again. I wanted to join in but the week was just too crazy. I meant to start this past Sunday, but simply forgot to, in the chaos of being out of town. I decided to start on Monday, and go through this coming Sunday.
Ali taught this mini album concept as a class at CKU a couple of years ago. I didn't get to take her class specifically, but saw several others' albums from the event and have wanted to do one ever since. Read all about how she puts together her "week in the life" album here.
So far, I am half-way through my "week". I have figured out how I want to lay out my album (6×6), picked out some supplies, and finished the album cover. I'm definitely doing a more condensed version (hers has much larger pages and a greater number of them) but I'm liking the "short, sweet and to-the-point" approach.
It's been a challenge to remember to take pictures of the "little" things throughout the day this week, but they help jog my memory later when it's time to journal about the day's events. So far, I've learned that my weekdays aren't quite as mundane as I thought they were (presidential debate, attaining workout goals, creating a birthday gift for a friend) but I am still anxious for the weekend that should bring some fun out-of-the-norm stories.
Stay tuned for the finished product!
(Anyone else following along with this project? Link your photos, I'd love to see!)
