Project Life: Week 2 (2013)


I’m still having fun with Project Life in week two! I didn’t take a lot of photos this week, but you can’t really go wrong with a giant photo of pancakes, and an upside down kitty. Overall, I’m liking this little bits of aqua color repeated in a few of the pockets.


Left side is a photo of my second favorite pancakes in Portland, from the Kingston Sports Bar & Grill. It has great service, cheap pancakes ($5.50 for two big pancakes + egg) and never a wait for a seat (this is very important in Portland). Bottom left pocket is a piece of the syllabus from my first printmaking class, and a picture of the press. The classroom has nice big windows. It will be a good place to work. Bottom right is one of my daily patterns from this week. It’s a new stamp pad, and I love that color.


Top left is a photo from Instagram and journaling with my grandma’s typewriter. In the top right, I’m still playing around with my date card/weekly journaling. This will likely be repeated every week. The little strip of paper is from one of my hand-carved stamp patterns. Bottom left is our kitty, Bucky. He is a monster and was in the middle of fighting me and the camera when I took this. Bottom left is a snapshot of the parking lot in front of our apartment before work on the first snowy morning.


My favorite part of this week’s spread is the pull tab. I printed out an exchange between me and my best friend on Twitter about the kitty and tucked it behind his photo. With a small album, I have a feeling I’ll be repeating this trick. This would also be good for things I want to include in the album that are not so aesthetically pleasing.
