Project Life | Week 16

There's just something about black and white spreads that makes me so happy.

Today I'm sharing week 16. Sorry for the glare, I was in a hurry to photograph this spread and the sun wasn't quite where it usually is when I photograph pocket pages, so I have some glare and no time to fix it. This week I used mostly black white and grey cards with the odd pop of colour.

Left side; I had this wooden April piece from Studio Calico from last year's April kit. I decided to just use it up on my title card for this week instead of hoarding it until I finally just give it away. This week I didn't take many photos but included one of the models Jon recently painted (it's easily my new fave) and the mermaids Tori and I created. She loves making one of everything for everyone in the family (which ends up being 10+ mermaids, butterflies, bunnies, etc.). On the bright side it keeps her busy for most of the afternoon and she loves making crafts.

Right side; The kids are also in love with Snapchat. They love face swapping, or being a puppy or a rabid bunny rabbit. Emmett makes the funniest faces. My Week in the Life kit arrived, I read Me Earl and the Dying Girl, Gracie cuddled Jon (so cute) I got my flairs from The Crafty Pocket and I documented Jon's Dad's birthday this week since I forgot to include it last week.

Sometimes I look at my mostly repetitive spreads and think "this is so boring and mundane, why would anyone find this interesting?" I'm sure you don't think it's interesting, but in the grand scheme of things, it'll be fun to look back at this in 10 years and see what we were up to. I imagine Snapchat would be much different by then if not obsolete or less popular than it is now. Jon's Dad celebrates his birthday based on the Chinese calendar (13 months instead of 12) so his birthday is never on the same day (which is interesting to me but also confusing).

Anyways, enough of my ramblings. I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
