Project Life: Sometimes, it’s all about me

Hey there. Back again with another set of Project Life pages. My second week of 2013 (Jan. 6-12) found me on a business trip in Europe. When this happens I normally have a lot of pictures of what I’m doing and not as many from the home front. I have a few choices. I could just quit (not really a choice), because I’m only tell part of the story.I can embrace the truth that I travel a great deal for work and there will just be some weeks that are more about me than my family. Or I can try to find a balance between both worlds: mine on the road and my family’s back home.

In most cases, I try to the find balance. It helps that my husband is a willing memory keeper … in as much as he shares stories with me, texts photos, posts to social media, etc. He often provides me a treasure trove of information without putting in too much effort.

For the most part, my Project Life pages are a true reflection of my life. Some times it’s all about me. Other times, it’s all about my kids. And other times, it’s about all four of us … things just ebb and flow. And I try to embrace that and accurately document this.

Here’s how it all came together in Week 2:

****************************************

Twice a month (2nd and 4th Wednesdays) I’ll be blogging about Project Life and what works for me over at the Two Peas in a Bucket Digital blog. Check out my first installment here.

Are you doing Project Life in 2013? Is this your first time? How have you prepared? If you’re a veteran, any advice? This week I linked up with The Mom Creative, a site filled with great Project Life inspiration.

    Firstly I have loved your freebies and have used them alot on my physical layouts. I love your digital Project Life and am attempting to do mine this way for 2013. My question is…how do you get the background paper behind the template?
