Hello Project Life 2013, and a big hello to PL Olive Edition and Mayfield Edition...so happy to have you in my hot little hands (finally!)
The most ridiculous thing happened to me this week. I suffered from a MAJOR case of Project Life stage fright. There I was, with all this gorgeous new product to use and a nice fresh album to begin , and I was almost paralyzed with indecision...what colour to go with? What kit to use? And should I be using these things up, being so new and shiny and all?
The fact that I recently completed a whole year of PL was suddenly irrelevant.
I had been thinking a lot about how I want to approach this new year of PL, and part of that process has been looking at lots of other peoples pages...BIG mistake. Instead of being inspired, I started doubting myself and my style, my photos and my handwriting, and every other aspect that is my way of doing PL.
After several attempts, LOTS of paper shuffling and a good personal talking to, I pulled myself together and went with what I know best...polkadots :)
I am SOOOO not a one range/one kit type of girl...that is for sure. I need variety. So I pulled out all the kits I now own...Turquoise, Clementine, Olive and Mayfield...and chose elements from there. I also used the backs of 4x6 cards from my oldest kit to mount the photos and journaling cards onto...they need using up!
So there you have it. Week One is now done, and I can take a deep breath and move on.
P.S. Thank you so much for your great response to our 12 Months of Christmas project for this year...I"M EXCITED! I plan to put up a guide for what The Three of Us plan to make in the next little while, and you can either join with us, or do your own thing...anything goes! We can all help each other along, and keep each other motivated. Did I mention I'm excited? WOOOHOOOOO!
