Week In The Life 2011

WITL2011-Opener

THE BASICS:

Oh the summer of 2011! Although we didn’t know whether we were having a girl or a boy – I was approximately 6 months pregnant with Rowan. We still lived on Lee Avenue and Charlie was our one and only fur baby.

THE DESIGN PLAN:

This year, I stepped up my game plan. Since I was know the proud owner of a fancy iPhone 4, I documented life via Instagram. Yes, I used white border and the Kelvin filter to “edit” all my photos….gasp! I know not the creative decision I would make today, but it captures a point in time. Like 2010, I came up with my own design plan, using 8.5 x 11 page protectors. All I have to say is that “the look” I was going for was “Modern French Country”. Funny enough the album was mostly pink and it turns out that I had a girl. The other conscious choice I made was to journal more. This included detailing our daily schedule with a date stamp and to write down daily gratitudes and reflections on the differences from the previous year.  In all this album had 30 or 4 pages dedicated to document each day. Have a look:

REFLECTIONS

Although I would not make the same design choices now, I totally appreciate the growth in my creative process. I still love this album and that I have a record of taking afternoon naps, just because I could! I love that I documented the excited feelings of my pregnancy and the anticipation of Rowan joining our family. My heart smiles because I see where we were and where we are now. Oh how innocent and well rested I was! HA!

Thanks for looking!
