Project Life - Week 1

Welcome to Project Life 2014! If you are new to my blog, welcome! I hope you will stay a while. I'm Jessica, wife to Juan, mommy to 2 year old Maddie. I am also an electrical engineer by day and I am participating in Project Life, a different way to record our lives by taking one photo a day. This was inspired by the fabulous Becky Higgins who has put together a wonderful kit to make this challenge easier.

I am using the digital kit on shutterfly. This digital version is SUPER easy to use! See my completed pages for 2012 using the Shutterfly Cobalt kit HERE. I will hopefully be posting my 2013 pages soon.

And finally, my POTW (pictures of the week) -

Wednesday - The first day of a new year. Maddie is still opening the last of her presents from Christmas. Also Grandma and Weeto finally came over, so we exchanged presents with them. Grandma knitted Maddie the cutest headbands to keep her ears warm. We spent the day putting away all the Christmas stuff and Daddy took down the lights. Maddie found my guitar when I was cleaning out the coat closet and played it forever! Now that she knows where it is, I'm not sure how we are going to keep it away from her, LOL!

Thursday - The garbage disposal is not working, so Daddy was trying to fix it. Of course, Maddie wanted to help Daddy and grabbed her tools and her flashlight. Daddy found pieces of Quail bone inside, but couldn't get it to work again so we are going to have to install a new one. 

Friday - Grandma and Grandpa got Maddie a Dora bouncy ball that needed to be inflated. Daddy got out the air pump today to inflate it and Maddie wanted to immediately help, of course. Maddie also found a new place to play, her clothes hamper. She has been diving into it head first and then getting stuck! She just loves to cram herself into tight locations.

Saturday - I wasn't feeling well today, but we still wanted to take Maddie to the Home Depot kids workshop. Today it was a little wooden calendar with adjustable blocks. Maddie did most of the hammering herself. She loves the kids workshops, but I think the popcorn is her favorite part!

Monday - Maddie found a sack from Central Market and found a perfect use for it!

Thanks for visiting, I am almost caught up!

I have decided to go the Project Life route with my son and his family. I have so many preggy photos, the ones from the hospital wedding, birth and the babies I think this is the way to go... Just trying to get all my stuff together. I am so glad you have done it and once I am sorted I will take a browse through your blog again to get some ideas.... xx
