I was super-excited when Ali Edwards chose the summertime to do Week in the Life. I knew if it were during the spring, fall, or winter I would not be able to participate due to work. Unfortunately, my summer to-do list is probably only about halfway finished and I have about four weeks before my fall semester begins.
I added a blog badge announcing I would be joining in, but took it down because I thought I wouldn’t participate during the actual week with Ali. And then I thought, there is no way. I am working on a Summer Stories project and am prepping another travel scrapbook for a trip I am taking in August. How on earth am I going to squeeze in a Week in a Life?
Time for a new strategy. Yesterday, I decided, yes I will participate. I had already been brainstorming ways to simplify the process. I built my album yesterday.
My goal is to record in writing 3-5 things each day.
I am taking photos, but am not photographing everything. I am opting to use my Ipod touch to take my photos. I will not be doing any post-process editing of photos as I would be doing if I used my DSLR.
What I write and what I photograph might be two different things.
I started with this album from Russel + Hazel:
I decided to stick with an orange theme to go along with the album. I made a two page framework for each day of the week and will add an additional page for any days if needed.
You can view the rest of the framework on flickr.
