WEEK IN THE LIFE 2012

WITL12-Opener

THE BASICS: 

So in 2012, I was on my year long maternity leave with Rowan while Aaron was working at a new job and traveling alot for work. As a result of Aaron’s business trip to Utah, I seriously considered not documenting this WITL. I thought I would be too stressed and too tired because I was looking after a 5 month old. I am so glad I didn’t listen to that voice of fear because this is one of my favourite WITL albums!

THE DESIGN PLAN

Full disclosure: I was going through a Real Simple magazine phase and as such, created my album with that aesthetic in mind. Like 2010 and 2011, I documented my week in 8.5 x 11 format and a combination of Gill Sans and Georgia fonts. This album also included our daily schedule with a time stamp and as well as gratitudes and reflections on the similiarties differences from the previous year.  In all this album had 30 or 4 pages dedicated to document each day. Bottom line: I really wanted this album to be easy to read….you know as if you were reading a magazine. Have a look!

REFLECTIONS

So much goodness in these pages! I can hardly remember what I did yesterday versus what I did with a 5 month old back in 2012. Ha! After completing this project 3 times, I felt that I finally felt that this year, I hit my design groove in putting it all together.  And speaking of which, I waited until July 2013 to compile all the information into these layouts. I am so thankful for my blog to literally be an online diary that I could go back and reference. Thanks for looking!
