A Week In The Life…

One of my favorite professional scrapbookers, Ali Edwards is hosting her A Week in the Life Project this week April 23rd – April 29th. You can find out more information about the project here: http://aliedwards.com/2012/03/week-in-the-life-2012-april-23-29.html

I am planning to participate in this years “A Week in the Life” because:

– It will allow me to zoom in on my life. Notice things that I normally breeze by and hear things that usually get lost in the noise that is life.

– It will allow me to connect to the larger scrapbooking community. I only know one die-hard scrapbooker like me, but this project will allow me to get to know some other scrapbookers who I affectionately like to call personal anthropologists.

– It so darn fun. It will be fun to lug around my cameras (my Canon Digi and my iPhone4) and take snap shots, eavesdrop on conversations to pick up bits and savor the flavor of everything that I eat so that I can translate it on the page.

– It satisfies one of my goals of creating more mini-books. I have a ton of 12 x 12 scrapbooks. One of my goals for this year was to create more minis. You can read more about my mini books here: https://donnienicole.com/2012/04/11/mini-books/

You’re more than welcome to participate. These kinds of projects are so open that you can make them whatever you want to make them. Be sure to download Ali’s Daily Sheets, which will give you some good ideas for what you can document.

This year I want to concentrate on gratitude and tuning up my senses so my daily prompts will read:

– What I Saw…

– What I Heard…

– What I Tasted…

– What I Smelled…

– What I Felt…

– The weather…

– Ordinary (this is where I will record the ordinary/routine things that happen)…

-Extraordinary (this is where I will record special things that happen)…

– For breakfast…

– For lunch…

– For dinner…

– Snacks…

– In the news… (I plan to grab one or more headlines)

– Today I’m grateful for…

You can download my FREE template if you’d like to participate ——-> Click the blue text to download (FREE Week in the Life 2012)! Be sure to drop me a line to let me know you’re doing it (even if you don’t plan on writing in the scrapbook). If you’re on Twitter or Instagram, Ali encourages us to use the #weekinthelife tag.

I’m going to try to update the blog daily at the end of the day (on top of the regular posts) AND I’m planning to put the mini book together next week, so I will be sure to share the final product.

Ladies and gentleman… welcome to the digital world of the Analog Girl…

  1. So excited you are doing it as a mini! Can’t wait to see it. I love those prompts too.

    • Thanks so much Annette. I’m not sure what the final end project is going to be lol… so far I’m just enjoying the process and hopefully when I’m staring at my pile of pics, I’ll have a better idea where to go with it🙂 LOVE your blog by the way!
