Project Life Week 8

I can't believe I got last week's pages done on time. 
I went out of town at the end of last week and I was determined to not let it get me out of sync. It helped that I kept it as simple as possible. Rather than worry about adding an insert to help document Mark's time with the kids & my trip, I decided to just keep some of my favorite photos from Austin. There are probably a lot of little stories missing, but it's a pretty good representation. 
Here's the whole week:



Last Sunday we went to our local farm to meet the new lambs. I love the look of pure joy on Hollis & Mia's face from while we rode on the hay wagon. 


These two 3x4 photos are iphone photos collected through the week. The one of me was a self portrait taken at the park when my hair was quite windblown and the sun was shining bright. I added some washi tape to mimic my sweater. 
The other photo is from Naomi's bath and her bubble beard!


One morning the babies asked to watercolor and that quickly moved to painting on our arms. Hollis has learned to spell his name and so he had me write the letters of his name on his arm. Naomi's paint tattoo was more simplistic! I should have gotten a shot of my arms covered with paint too!


This manhole cover was one of my favorite finds on a walk in Austin. I printed the picture on 8x10 photo paper and then cut it to fit in the 4 slots. I added one of the graph Project Life cards, stickers, and a little writing about my trip. 


I went to Austin for the first Quiltcon show ever and had a blast seeing amazing work, meeting people, and exploring Austin. I got a chance to meet fabric designer, Heather Ross, one morning. She's been one of my favorite fabric designers for a long time and so it was exciting and a little emotional to get to talk to her for a few minutes. 

I also added a photo taken in a little cafe I would frequent called Caffe Medici. They had super yummy chai! The other picture is my roommate Jen and I at the 80s dance party. 


One of the other designers I got to meet was Amy Butler. Her fabric is amazing and she's lovely and warm in person. I felt so blessed and lucky to be able to meet her too!
I used one of the maps of Austin that I used to get around the city as background paper for this photo and the one above.


I'm linking up with The Mom Creative for her weekly Project Life share.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your photo in Austin with the butterfly on the street! What a great way to highlight a photo - I'm so going to have to print some of mine that size and spread them out over several pockets. Great work!
