Yesterday I sent off all my WEEK IN THE LIFE photos photos to be printed by Persnickety Prints. I’m eagerly anticipating my packet to arrive here in Norway, but it will likely be another 10-14 days before I can hold the actual prints in my hands. Good thing I have a lot of things to do at work (and on the farm) to keep me occupied while I wait.
I decided to print all of my favorite photos from our week, the ones I posted here during the week + a few other favorites I found on my second look through. After seeing what Annette Haring did with her intro-pages to each day I wanted to go a similar route. The photos I’m sharing here today will be on two pages in the album and placed in the front of each day. I really liked this approach.

Once the prints are here I look forward to figure out how I want my album to flow. I have a few other enlarged photos as well, and I loved how Ali Edwards glued 4×6 together and included several photos outside of the pockets in her album.
So many good ideas around this project.
This will be the first time (hopefully) were I have a finished album to put on my shelf; it feels so good after several years of trying to move from the documenting process of this (and similar projects) to a finished product without success. This time it was fun to be a part of the “group” that wrote a blog post about each of the days, I’m sure that was one of the things that helped me stay on top of things. I also felt I learned quite a lot working in Lightroom editing my photos + making collages for so many days in a row. That is a new skill to bring to my next project (like the many weeks of Pocket Scrapbooking that I would love to do from this year).
This project makes me happy and grateful, as it has done the other years I’ve done it as well. An album in my hand or not; the photos taken gives me a glimpse of how much there is to give thanks for in our everyday life where I try to embrace the imperfectness, the tiredness and the gray/black days that also are a part of it all right now.
