Week in the Life

Ali Edwards is one of my favorite scrapbookers. Her projects always speak to me. I think she does an amazing job telling her family’s story. Last year I joined her and completed a week in the life. I think it is a great way to document the ordinary. I know I am guilty especially with our video camera to only use it for special occasions; holidays, birthday’s, vacation and other special events. I was much better about using the video camera my son’s first two years and not at year five….. I guess one can not be good at everything. I will say that I do a great job with still pictures, and over the last two years with my Iphone I am able to capture move still and video than ever before because I simply have it with me.

I know it was quite a while back that Ali Edwards did her 2012 week in the life and at the time I considered doing it then too but just couldn’t make it happen. I don’t even remember what was getting in the way. Anyways it’s been on my mind to complete now for a few weeks and this morning I decided no time like the present! So today, Monday August 27th is the first day in my week in the life. Read more about Ali’s project and get her free PDF daily note sheets (which are wonderful!- My favorite section where you write down what your family had for their meals that day.) http://aliedwards.com/2010/01/week-in-the-life.html
