here's a peek at those five spreads. you can click the images to make them bigger (and maybe clearer).
I'm still sticking to most of what I started with. a double spread for each week, running sunday to saturday. a mix of my handwriting and computer-generated text. but I'm now printing the weekly summary (and trying to include "just the highlights"), trying to incorporate more journaling and being a bit more lenient about documenting my cast-on projects. I keep telling myself "less photos is good". and I think I'm taking less photos so I hope that's true! I'm also trying to include more ephemera (of course it's thursday in week 18 and so far, I have none...)
I'm really happy with the pages I've got. but I am not at all happy with the process. getting behind and being stressed about catching up has never been my thing. but seeing what I accomplished in these seven days...I know I can do better. and get one spread documented each week. my "workweek" ends on wednesday afternoon. so I'm going to try to get my layout for the previous week completed by thursday. and here's the thing. I'm going to post it here. unfortunately I haven't been able to think of a cool "project life thursday" blog title. but if you see "project life" you'll know it's me...keeping up. and that's all I'm intending to do!
(and yes, this does take time away from knitting. and yes, it is definitely time well-spent!)
