I finally broke down last week and ordered the Oliver Project Life kit that was on sale. I only ordered the core kit and the patterned paper as I already had several empty 3 ring binders and well over the last several years I had picked up a variety of paper protectors from various companies. No I don’t have any Becky Higgin’s page projectors yet, I just didn’t feel I could justify purchasing more page protectors right now when I have like ten packages of various types and sizes of page protectors that I could be using. I have not opened the core box yet…for some reason I am scared. Part of me wonders what did I get myself into. I keep looking at the various post on numerous blogs about PL and think I can’t do this, I have no reason to track daily activities nor do I really have anything to write about on a weekly basis. I started a K&Company Smash book months ago, it took me months before I actually broke down and wrote in the book. I tried carrying it with me for a while but then it got put some place and I have moved since the last time I saw it. I have a guess of where it is but why look for it since I wasn’t using it. The silly thing is I also purchased a second Smash book to note wedding plans even though I had already made a beautiful book for wedding planning.
Okay, my issue is not just getting it done, it is the prints. I hate spending the money on prints. I don’t know why. I spend lots of money on the things to make mini albums but never the photos. I know lately I haven’t been taking a lot of photos and well those that I have taken have been on my iPhone and who the heck knows how those actually turn out. I did break down a few weeks ago and purchased a Simple Stories Snap album which is kind of like a mini project life book and I have managed to get a couple of layouts completed including photos so that is good. I am trying to put together a book for my wonderful husband about the last year. I thought it would be a get birthday gift for him to have a book of all the major activities we have done this last year…which ended with our wedding and wonderful honeymoon at Walt Disney World. I would love to go back to WDW this year but we have concluded we need to wait a year before returning so we will return for our second anniversary.
Ending for now as I am going to actual open my Project Life core kit. Here I come…lets make it happen. 🙂
