Week in The Life 2013 - the finished album
When your life
is not going anywhere,
it is YOUR fault.
How many times a year
you feel that as if your life
is not going anywhere?
Always the same routine
that made you say,
"What to record in my everyday's life?"
"These are all just usual stuff!"
Yeah, me too.
That many times.
But, looking at these,
I'm grateful that my life
is going somewhere interesting.
Somewhere my hubby and I dreamed
long time ago since we first said, I do.
And these WITL projects are sealed proof.
Year, after year, after year.
I chose this chic 3 binder rings,PL's album.
I love how the word 'TODAY' is highlighted,
as a reminder to be present, always.
May do something to embellish the cover later,
or may be not,
but I am happy with this now.
And simply adding the Monday-Sunday's tabs
from Studio Calico's journal cards
at the top of each day page.
And these are the inside pages,
begin with MONDAY,
then with TUESDAY,
go on with WEDNESDAY,
somehow, survive until THURSDAY,
go slow with FRIDAY,
happy with SATURDAY,
and feel incredibly grateful with SUNDAY,
A little tiny portion of our
three hundred and sixty five days.
But recorded so so much.
Since I only make 'Week in The life'
(seven days) instead of 'Project Life'
(a year), I have the privilege
to have bigger photos inside the
But if someday I go crazy
and jump into making PL,*LOL*
I definitely will following
Irene Gwen Chow's example,
one of my Singapore's fav scrapper,
who made her PL beautifully and
effectively with smaller pics.
The year is 2013,
and I'm still NOT
into hybrid scrapbooking.
I love texture on my scrapbook.
I love something that I can touch
with my fingers and feel serene.
So this is me,
few days back.
Un-stopable with my giant stock
of washi tapes,
added layers outside the sleeves.
The pages seem weaving themselves into place.
How about your life-recording?
Make sure you take time to record it,
since it ain't coming back.
Greatest life lessons
are abundant around you.
Train yourself HOW to see.
