Week in The Life is an annual memory keeping project organised by Ali Edwards. It’s a look at the everyday, the normal and the things that wouldn’t normally get documented. It’s quite an intense bit of record keeping over a week, but I think it’ll be worth it. From this Monday, I’ll document everything – take a million photos, keep an actual diary (which I’ve not done for a very, very long time) and next week I’ll get into the fun, creative part – creating an album. I got a little bit of money for my birthday from my Grandma (thanks, Grandma!) and I spent it on the WITL kit from Ali’s website. It has everything I need: album, page protectors, dividers and lots of lovely embellishments and papers to use. I’ve started on the album already, putting the page protectors in order and fitting a few journal cards here and there. I’ve no idea if I’ll actually use the layout I’ve given myself, but it’s a springboard for when I start adding photos and words.
I’ve also created a cover page, which you can see above. It’ll do. I’m not sure if I like the days of the week on there, I feel I should have kept it simple and just had the date. On the other side of that page I’ll print off a photo of the four of us. I know a lot of bloggers are documenting every day at the end of each day, but I think that may be a bit much for me, so I’ll just give you an update on the finished album once it’s done. I really hope I manage to complete the full week! It’s easy to get fatigued in a project like this, but there’s a great community of WITL-ers, on Instagram and Facebook especially, who are so full of inspiration and support, I should be pretty enthused throughout the week. Lets just hope the rest of the family think the same!
