project life: week nine

Here we go with week nine... pretty much an ordinary week except that we were given a vintage typewriter! When you think you don't have too much going on and you worry that you'll never have enough pictures to complete a layout, remember there are always every day moments just waiting to be documented - lunch, nephews, a breakfast out at chick fil a, a turtle encountered on a walk, a room in your house. Just look around and I'm sure you'll find plenty of worthy subjects. This is what I love most about Project Life, documenting the every day.

I included an instagram pic of the typewriter and just above it a note that Mason typed for me. He was having fun typing random words so I handed him a plain journaling card and told him to type whatever he wanted on it. I love the little note he typed to me!


I thought it would be a good idea to include a picture of each room in our house throughout the year. This time it was my kitchen.


I love using the number stickers for bullet points when I don't have a lot of journaling. I documented leap day with some gummy bears in the shape of the number 29.

  2. I always love looking at your Project Life pages! It's so fun! I think it's so neat you guys got a vintage typewriter. I remember my parents having a typewriter when I was a kid and how much I loved using it. It would be fun to use one now I think.

    Also, I love your kitchen! It's so bright (I want a white kitchen) and I love the red chairs!!

  16. I remember my dad writing his master's thesis on a typewriter. I would have never made it through college if I had to use a type writer. So it's really amusing (not in a bad way, it a good way) that people use them in their scrapbook.

  17. You make this seem so easy! I'm sure I would stare at the pocket pages and wonder what to put in them lol.

    I love have you make the everyday so interesting.

    Your son's note is so sweet.
