****winner of my badges giveaway is posted below as well as a new journaling freebie****

Hi all, I'm finished with Week 2 (Jan 9 to Jan 15) and ready to share. The light was finally better and it was brighter earlier than usual, so I've better photos of the spread to share this week (:

For those wondering, I run my weeks Monday to Sunday, because my calendars all state a week's progression as such.

After I completed it, I realised that it was really pink, but figured out that it's fine since the Lunar New Year is approaching. It was a week full of events, mostly captured by my iPhone. I really need to whip out my regular camera more.

Another thing, which I believe is not going to go away soon, my Project Life is going to be full of food shots. Heh. What a way to remember the year, through food of all things.

Here's the Left side close up

A couple of important things also occured this week, which I included in my PL.
The truce between the Myanmar government and the Karen people is something close to my heart, as I had done my university Final Year Project on the refugees of the 60 year long war and had some deep interviews with people on the scene. I'm glad that this has come to pass, hopefully that it lasts and is not just a smokescreen.

One of the things I want to try to do is include a photo of me in some form at least once a month, mostly as I don't really take photos of myself. The card is a freebie that I have available in the shop for download. Love how it frames my instagram print out nicely, with space for journaling.

On to the right side
I went a bit crazy here with the stitching, but I just love the look and homespun feeling that it gives. I find the small squares easy to work with as bits of paper or tape can easily dress up a page.
I am fairly certain that you would see doilies turn up on my Project Life every once in a while. This one was left over from a layout that I was doing and will be sharing soon. I think this one doily got used by me on three different project/pages, so good on me for stretching my supplies. Additional dimension was added with the details button, part of my "Words" set available in the shop.
I think I will hardly ever fear that I will not have enough to fill in my spread in Project Life, though I highly doubt I will put inserts unless I go overseas. (In fact now as I am writing about week 2 I realised that there is another event that occured and didn't include, having wanted to do so when it happened. But I will not be hung up on missing it out). The two journaling cards are part of my "Heart" set in the shop.

I think I will hardly ever fear that I will not have enough to fill in my spread in Project Life, though I highly doubt I will put inserts unless I go overseas.

Project Life is a line of products by Becky Higgins, and can be used for documentation of daily life or anything else you may want. I am using it to remember the year and take more photos of  my everyday. Follow my PL journey hereYou can check out more project life week pages all around the web, check out The Mom Creative.
