Project Life: My way

Happy Weekend! I've not no excuse for my absence other than, Life. I've been super busy and by the time I get home, get dinner made, house tidy, shopping done, child in bed, I'm pooped. By the time I shower it's 9, then I just crash on the couch with a book. You'd think after last semester I wouldn't want to read for a long time, but I love my books.

I'm glad I get to read for enjoyment now, and not have to analyze everything and discuss it. Come the end of the month, I start up class again. No more Literature classes though. I am officially done for life. I have three classes this time. All business related classes. Which I am excited about. I had 1 business class this semester and couldn't really focus too much on it because of all the reading. $600 for books this semester though…and that was my pricing on Amazon which usually is MUCH cheaper. Even though I love owning my books (yes, I am weird, even textbooks) I've decided to just rent them because I really just don't have that kind of extra money. Oh well, I'm sure I will get over it. Lol

So!!!!!! As a reward to myself for losing weight, *trying* to comfortable with being my weird self, getting a new job, going through all these changes and many other reasons, I bought myself an iPhone and I am super excited about it! This is a super big deal because I have finally stepped into this century since I've been using one of those ancient basic phones. Yes, they still make them. My coworker that sits next to me already asked that question. :-P.

 This year I'm starting my own version of Project Life and I think it will be really helpful and convenient for capturing those everyday moments. As you can see in these pages here.

I debated back and fourth about going the traditional route, using the 12x12 album with the pocket pages and all the works but decided to go this route instead.  I have so many supplies that I have accumulated throughout the years that I figured it would be best to use them, plus if I fall behind (which I hope I won't) I won't feel as guilty since I didn't really buy anything extra. Plus there is more freedom this way. 

My favorite photo is in that first layout. I had just discovered you could use the camera either as front of back, so I took a selfie. What's funny is I was photo bombed by the cardboard cutout of David Hasselhoff that's hanging on my boss' door. I didn't realize it until after and knew I had to add it to this week's llayout.

Well that's it for today! Hope you all have a great rest of the weekend!


  1. Being photo bombed by David Hasselhoff is too funny!! If you're going to do project life, you have to do it in whatever way you'll stick with it :)

  2. Vanessa, have fun with your new iPhone and doing PL your way! :) love the photo bomb pic!


Don't be shy! Stop by and say hello!
