Sunday in pictures.














I am all done with my project. Yesterday and today is started to feel like work... forcing myself to take the pictures and making the pages. But now that I am done I feel so satisfied. It was worth every effort. I am thinking of getting a book printed with all the pages. I will be a wonderful keepsake.
What did i learn? That life is not perfect and it's ok to document your life with imperfect pictures. And to document those messy moments. That ones life consists of a lot more stories than one think. I love just getting into the habit of taking more pictures. I took 725 pictures for the whole week. I loved the fact that I could do it all digitally. It made it a lot easier for me personally. Then like all things good it came to an end and I was happy it did. it's a full time job!

What's your thoughts on a week-in-the-life? Leave me a comment and you can win a RAK!

I wasn't able to do it this week but I want to do it sometime soon. I would love to get it together enough to learn digi and make mine digital...I think I could follow through better that way!!

I think it's so important to remember the little things that tell the stories of our lives and not just birthdays, holidays, etc!

Oh, I wish I had that determination to find time to do something like that. The result is amazing! It's really nice to keep memories like that forever... :D

I loved being able to create my LO's digitally too. I used Ali's 12x12 template although I only created 2 LO's per day with an additional double. I will be getting mine printed out eventually, the expense is prohibitive at R45 per 12x12.
Taking pics of the everyday was just an extension of my photo per day, although I struggled with Sunday too...still need to do that one.
THanks for the inspiration.

IT CAME IN WONDERFULLY THIS YEAR!
The past week was a working week until Thursday and As that would have been quite boring I decided to do "2 weeks in our life" - because this week my boyfriend and I have a week off! (;

LOVE THE PROJECT!!!

I didn't participate this time but I have loved following yours! You should be very proud, your layouts are beautiful! Thanks for sharing your week with us!

Wilna, I admire you for getting so much done in a day, and then making a digi-layout of it too!!! You are such an inspiration.

I *want* to do it, and I love your digital version. I am not sure I could do it, and keep up. Yours seems so simple.

Maybe after your "week" you could give us a "tutorial" on how you did it with ease?

Louise Dubord said...

Wow! You did great. I wanted to do it, but I will do it later because... I just finished the December Daily last week!!!! But I did 31 days and I finished the whole thing! The only problem is that my book is about 7 inches thick now! i know, I got carried away and documented way too much stuff! But I had fun and pushed myself. I am happy I did it.

You have amazing LOs, they look fantastic in an album :) Congrats! Seeing your pages, I thought, maybe I can also do such an one-week album for me. Thanks for the inspiration ;)

I did a "week in the life" project two years ago. It is busy, but such a neat project to record all the little traditions/routines in a day. That is the part I loved most about the project.

Abby said...

I really want to attempt this. I started doing p365 and was so determined not to stop. well, life got in the way and i stopped. :( this is so much more doable!

Jen said...

It was a good week... although half way through, I was tired of taking pictures of me doing laundry and dishes. LOL!

I'm loving your pages- I agree, it was hard towards the end, but now that it's complete I'm SOOOO happy to have this album!
