Color Run New England : July 2012
august twenty.twelve : intentions

project life : week whaatttt?

Or, in Austin's words - "Dude. You should really get this thing on track." 

Yes, dude, I should. And I am - sort of. The state of the union for me & Project Life looks something like this - 

  1. I'm taking lots of photos. Many with my iphone. Many on instagram. 
  2. I'm saving stuff, although I'm trying to take Barb's advice on organizing it. 
  3. I'm still completely in love with the project, and just giving myself some needed space to get things done. 
  4. I'm more mindful about my days. This is, by far, the biggest benefit of Project Life. I notice, record, and reflect on daily stuff. 
  5. I am contributing to the financial health of the scrapbooking industry. In other words? I'm buying washi tapes & paper & STUFF. 
  6. And, of course, I'm having a BLAST with Project Life Planned.

Speaking of (seque into "sponsored post" here...) Project Life Planned, we're up to something fun! We've partnered with a brand new kit club, Gossamer Blue! 

Gossamer Blue ( is a new monthly kit club dedicated to inspiring and motivating memory keepers and crafters alike. Each main kit is well coordinated with a mix of products from multiple manufacturers, and also includes Lori Whitlock ( die cutting and digital elements.
