project life 2014 // week one.

Dated: January 1 - January 5. Happy 2014! It's my first week of project life ever, and I'm kind of already really obsessed with it.What I did this week: It was my second week in England with R. We rang in the new year with a puzzle and crappy champagne with our friend Ben, watched an insane amount of horrible television, and drove down to London to stay with my aunt before I flew home on Sunday. In other words, just what the doctor ordered.About this spread: I cropped a picture of R and I to 4x12 and cut it in half so that I could feature both of us in a 4x6 and journal right on the photos. I also used a 4x6 midnight edition card with a camera on it to feature mini polaroids I took.Thoughts, concerns + details: I had to really get a feel for how I want my album to be not only this week but in general. It will obviously change week to week, which is the beauty of it, but having a "plan" kind of helps me to keep from getting overwhelmed. I'm glad I lugged my canon with me all the way to England otherwise I don't think I would have had that great of a shot of me and R. Same thoughts on my polaroid camera - a hassle to carry, but way worth it.
Photo breakdown: phone photos: 5 // canon t3 photos: 5 // polaroid photos: 2. Taken by me and the self-timer.
