Project Life Week 8

If you're visiting from Jessica's site---Welcome! I share my Project Life pages weekly mostly to help keep myself on track for the year. I'd love to see your pages too so be sure to leave a comment or link to your weekly spread. You can follow me here and on Instagram to see all sorts of goodies from our life. 

The name of the game lately is using my iphone to capture photos of our day. I'd love to use the DSLR more, but I still can't see through the little viewfinder very well. It's much easier to snap photos using the phone and edit them using apps like Afterlight or A Beautiful Mess. Mark sent me two photos this week that he took.

It's really easy to find all the photos when I'm ready to print because iPhoto bundles all my phone pictures into a monthly PhotoStream folder. I can easily see what photos were taken that week and pick and choose which ones to print. Right now, I'm printing everything at home, but it's getting more and more daunting because of ink issues. I recommend NOT buying refurbished cartridges for your photo printing. I'm hoping my streaking issues clear up after a new round of ink is put in the printer. 

Most of this week's spread uses the Midnight kit. I've added in a few stickers and labels for journaling. The February badge is from Ormolu.

 While I went visiting family, Mark and Mia went to a game convention in Denver. One night, there was a Star Wars themed party and Mia got to meet some of her favorite characters. 

I love this picture of me, my aunt, my grandma and my niece. I was trying to explain selfies to Grandma. She looks so beautiful here. 
I loved getting a chance to visit with my aunt and Grandma---even though it was short and pretty crazy with 7 kids running around.

I'm really trying to include more photos of myself. It's been fun to set up the Timercam while I'm at work and there is a quiet moment.
I used the Right Now card to make a list of all the things we are loving lately. I included favorites from everyone. 

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

Love the family selfie. I need to convince my mother to get in some of those. She doesn't get into my album as much as she should.

Such wonderful memories you are creating with your pages. Wish I had done this when my kids were little.
