Day In The Life: August 19, 2017


I’m swimming in projects and I wanted a very fast and simple way to document the photos I captured for August’s Day In The Life. This is only my second time doing this project and I really loved taking photos every hour and writing a few words about what was going on. It will be fun to look back on what we were doing years from now.

Since Aug-19 was a Saturday, I had a more interesting day (compared to many hours of work). Also since my daughter and I had just returned from France that week, our routine was a bit off — especially the timing of our day. I don’t normally start my day before 5 am and end before 10 pm!

I loved creating my own traveler’s notebook a few months ago for the previous Day In The Life, but that was going to take more time and I really wanted something I could finish in an afternoon. I decided to add the photos in a page protector in my regular Project Life album. I used these minimal and modern photo templates from paislee press to create 18 trading card-sized photos to slip into a 9-pocket 8.5 x 11″ page protector.

I didn’t actually have a 9-pocket 8.5 x 11″ page protector but I did have  a blank 8.5 x 11″ page protector and a Fuse tool so I was able to create my own. 🙂

I stuck to using only 3 of the photo templates in the collection and alternated between the square photos and full photos. I added brief text to tell what was happening that hour.

After printing and cutting, I slipped the photos into the page protector and it was done, only a few hours later!

Do you document your Day In The Life? What are your easy and fast ways to get the project done? I’d love to hear.

  1. Whats up this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice
    from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  2. Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam
    feedback? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.

  3. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on sites
    I stumbleupon every day. It’s always exciting to read through content from other authors and use a little something from their websites.
