project life weeks 24 through 34.

...whoa. I knew it had been a while, but until I took the photos of the finished spreads this morning and saved the slightly edited versions, I had no idea it had been eleven weeks. nearly three months. of course it seems like that long when I look back at each page, but still...

the first four of those weeks had been partially completed back in september; I had the photos in place, and most of the ephemera, but I needed to add a few more details and the journaling. thank goodness for post-it notes to remind me what I'd originally intended.
week 24 (august 26 - september 1)
week 25 
week 26 
week 27
these weeks look like the ones that preceeded them - a mix of photos and "stuff" and a few journaling cards thrown in. I did tweak cathy zielske's life list cards to document things we did specifically for the new house.

 and then I got to the catchup phase. I shared a photo on instagram friday night of the mess of ephemera and notes that I started with.

it got worse before it got better :-)  I decided on two three week spreads, pre-closing/move and post-closing/move with two 6x12 spreads in the middle to document our 2-day walk and my dad's 75th birthday weekend. good thing marc was gone all weekend, because I had all the counters in my kitchen full of project life until about 9pm last night! here's how those six weeks turned out.
weeks 28 - 30 (september 23 - october 12) 
a close-up of the front of the 2-day walk page
and the back - and the front of my dad's birthday page
and the back of the birthday page and the right side of the three-week spread
weeks 31 - 33
and one close-up. my pile of ephemera was impressive! the quotation in the lower right is written on an envelope I'd already embossed with my old address. and of course I LOVE the queen of hearts shopping list. (maybe they do project life, too?!)

and last but not least, in "real" time, week 34.

in addition to everything else I'm loving about this approach to documentation, I now would add "flexibility". really, it was pretty easy to adapt the format to make it work. I am looking forward to staying caught up and hopefully doing more real time entries for december (in place of december daily). we'll see how that goes!

Y'know, Mary. I actually thought about how you might stay on top of this project through your move. You are AWESOME. What a wonderful life-journal. I just love it! (And I know that I would never be quite so dedicated.)

Can I 'hire! You to catch me up, too? And I do not have a 'move house' event in my life to blame!

Great job ---you are an inspiration!
