Okay, I'll say it "Hot enough out there for ya?" How many times have you heard that lately? Or perhaps you don't live where it's hot as Hades right now.
This little cutie doesn't run, the cord's old and frayed and I'm afraid to even plug it in and try it. But, I love the way the bold color stands out against the pale colors in the room.
And while it's been hot, hot, hot for this week in my life, that's not what the title of this post refers to.
Ali Edwards is beginning another Week in the Life series on Monday. And she has invited the whole internet to play along. Cuz she's nice that way. And she even has free print outs and idea sheets, and there will be a link up each day, and there's a flickr group for it too.
From Ali's blog:
A seven-day documentary project, Week In The Life is an annual opportunity to capture the simple everyday details of your life with photos and words. The albums I’ve created using the basics outlined below are some of my most treasured in that they are wonderfully true representations of my family’s life at a particular point in time. From the mundane to the profound, it’s those simple little everyday moments that I treasure most.
If you choose to embark on this project, especially for the first time, I encourage you to read through the comments from previous years. There are many suggestions, answers, additional information, etc. that can be found within the comment sections of each post. And remember, there’s no right or wrong way to approach this album.
It’s an amazing adventure. Consider yourself invited
I plan to play along and probably post some of the photos here each day. I printed out her daily journaling sheets and a list of suggested photos. I figure after the first day, I could use some ideas, so that my days don't look exactly the same. (even though they feel that way most days) Ali gives suggested product lists for doing a more traditional scrapbook or hybrid scrapbook project. I plan to put together a photo book from Shutterfly or Snapfish with the week's photos and journaling when I'm done. It's the simplest way for me to actually complete a project, and her digital scrapbooking templates and fonts and supplies can still be used for that. If you'd like to play along, I recommend you have a look around Ali's blog, she has lots of suggestions and examples and links to get you inspired.
