I've got about three weeks of summer left.
And while I had big ideas about all the craft projects I would work on this summer...what I actually did instead was conduct a massive purge / reorganization of my apartment. Which, yes, was a long-time coming...but still. I was feeling kinda bummed about my lack of creative projects this year so far. And then I realized that, hello, until this summer, I actually DID work on a creative project once a week all year long! My Project Life album!!!
It is really silly how happy working on this makes me. So last night I realized I had let myself fall about 7 weeks behind (the last page I finished was from the last week of school!), and sat down and BAM just like that I did 4 weeks in a row. Wow. Feeling so much better. and you know, ever so slightly creative. :)
I worked on pages from weeks 25 and 26 when I saw many (MANY) of my cousins in two different locales, as well as my parents
Then a sort of hybrid week (part of vacation fell in week 26 and part in week 27). I am going to add some journaling on that 4x6 card later.
And the two weeks at home after that
I still have three more weeks to catch up on but I'm loving this album so much, I'm so glad I decided to do this project this year. Although....I am a little worried about how full my album is getting. Too many times I decided to do an insert page! Or too many embellishments? Who knows, but I am determined to fit in all in one so it may be QUITE chubby by year-end. We'll see.
OH and I did back and baste this quilt top that was pieced back in... 2012 (GASP)
So I'm hoping to quilt that later this week, as well as quilt up a mini quilt I made my friend Bertha that started in 2013
Just need to back and baste that one and then hopefully I can knock out the quilting on it also!
So while I feel like on the one hand I've done NOTHING but teach all year...there are some creative bits starting to creep out here and again. Maybe I can maintain a better balance this next school year. MAYBE. *Fingers crossed*
I love the album. It's a grand idea and you're doing a splendid job on it. I'm glad you're keeping it up, even when you get crazy busy.
Love the pics of you in foils!
