This was my first A Week in the Life layout! It was fun choosing a ‘theme’ and I decided that I wanted to try the ‘sherbet colors’ look that using the Rhonna Designs app for iPhones gives. My life isn’t perfect and I’m not into making it look like it’s perfect so I knew this would be interesting. But my life is also a little slow since my kids are just about grown so it was going to be, as all of my Project Life layouts are, All About Me.
My entire color inspiration came from the A Week in the Life card! I just loved it and I didn’t even know the card was in a set I had.
Sherbet-y colors! Yummy.
The first part of my A Life in the Week:
Sunday: The first day of my week. It was about cleaning up party messes. And my cat Chloe, I tried to make it look like it was all her fault, but it wasn’t.
Sunday: My husband congratulates me with a balloon from his birthday. Apparently, I rock because I get to renew my driver’s license through the mail.
Monday: I ate ice cream that I’m not supposed to and I think that’s photo worthy.
Tuesday: First day of Autumn was spent doing lots of chores instead of my list because I was without a car (smog). Ugh.
(I still haven’t finished everything on this list, 2 weeks later)
Tuesday: My son’s artwork was chosen to be used for this Touming Magazine 7″ vinyl. Very exciting!!
And the second half of my A Week in the Life:
Wednesday: I celebrated the First Day of Autumn today since I got my car back. I pulled this shirt out of my ‘get rid of’ bag and decided to wear it and I tackled my huge list. P.S. At the end of the day I remembered why this shirt was in the get rid of bag: it sucks. The collar is limp and it’s ill-fitting. It goes back in!
Classic me motto: Do it anyway. And, yes, I Instagrammed it. My husband and I made these paper feathers. I cut and painted them, and my husband sewed them. I think they came out pretty cool.
Thursday: I went to our pharmacy, cleaned up and decorated for Fall while my husband worked.
Friday: I packed up more of my Creative Memories products that I sold online. At this point, I just want to get rid of what I won’t use! Off to the post office I went. Saturday: I did some things around the house and then went to mass. I heard this reading today and it meant a lot to me on this afternoon. Now if I could just convince this for others…
Saturday: After mass, I went home, helped my son get ready for the dance and I drove him out there. And then in a few hours, I drove back out, picked him up and took him to In and Out for after-dance food. And I sold more of my items so it was a win-win day, week…all of it. My life may be slow and boring but it’s MY slow and boring. And I won’t bother you with another ‘Week in My Life’ again for awhile. You’re welcome!
It was fun, colorful, new, and I had a great time documenting every little bit. Yes, it’s only two pages- I told you my life was slow! 🙂
