It’s back! This is the week each year that I really look forward to and then kind of hate by the end! 🙂 Also, my kids kind of hate it by the end too – having a camera in their face 24/7 gets to be a bit much.
If you don’t know what Week in the Life is all about, check out Ali Edwards – this is her baby.
I’ve done this the past two years and I can’t even explain how much I love the finished product. Going through those 6×8 albums and seeing all aspects of our days and lives for that week is amazing.
I’m kind of behind this year in that I have no prep done – usually my album is set up and I have an idea where I’ll go with it to finish. This year, well, I have some product pulled and we’ll have to see how it all comes together!
Here’s what I have so far:
Simple Stories burlap chevron album in red
Bo Bunny, Simple Stories, and Shimelle papers (I also have old Halloween Scenic Route that I’ll use)
Simple Stories alphas and stickers
Sn@p pouch for bits and bobs (I used this last year and it was great!)
Plus lots of different page protectors so I can do whatever I want in terms of photos and the 6×8 daily sheets from Ali. I’m sure there will be lots more added as I go!
And that’s it. Pretty simple – you truly only need a camera of some kind and a place to stick pictures and journaling – Week in the Life doesn’t need to be, and shouldn’t be, complicated or about the product. In its essence, it’s a photo journal about the nitty gritty details of your life for one week.
Are you playing along? I’d love to see what you all are doing so let me know! Post a link in the comments so we can all go have a look.
P.S. My friend Cathie posted her WITL supplies this morning – go take a look!
I just bought this same chevron album for my december daily and the smell is horrid! did you have any problems with yours??
I don’t remember having an issue but I bought the album several months ago. There is no smell now! Maybe mist it with freshener?
Thanks Sara! I contacted them and they are taking care of it, because they literally have had no other complaints of this! Crazy. It is a really strong, unpleasant odor, so I must have gotten a bum album, because I am sure others would’ve said something too. I was googling it, and that is how I found your blog, but nothing else about smelly albums! Thanks again!
Glad they’re taking care of it – it’s an awesome album!
