Two weeks in and I totally love this just as much as I thought I would. I like having a place for the scraps and labels that I save because I think they're pretty, and I like having something to do with my Instagram photos. This is week 1:
And then a semi-close-up of the left and right sides of week one:
I used ticket stubs, the labels off some fabric I ordered online, packaging from a few different things, and Chris's "take a number" slip from the pharmacy. The rest is mostly photos, which honestly surprised me. I didn't think I'd have very many pictures each week, but I was pleased to have more than enough. (The orange arrow in the photo below is pointing to the Capitol building. It didn't show up well in the photo but I wanted to draw attention to it!
And this is week two. (The top left card on each week's spread is the "title" card with the dates of each week stamped on.)
This week I didn't have as many photos, but I still didn't have much trouble filling all the pockets. I used a Chipotle receipt, a fabric scrap that I practiced stitching on, a shopping list, a screenshot from my phone, packaging, the text of a tweet that really made me laugh, and a postcard I found at the movie theater where we saw Beauty and the Beast. (!!)
I think my favorite pocket of week 2 is my Amaryllis Watch 2012 collage. (Update: the plant has 4 flowers, one bud, and a whole other stalk that will have 4-5 more flowers in a week or two. So awesome!) I also really like the map screenshot, which shows the route between two friends' houses.
I've been putting the spreads together on Saturday, and I really look forward to it all week. It actually takes me quite a while to do the whole thing, but so far I've enjoyed the process. Yay for having fun with paper again!
