Finally Free to Craft

The school hols are here...yay!! I've done my first year and I have never been so tired.  The children finished on Tuesday, I've done three days of classroom sorting with my new job share partner and now I have 5 weeks of rest and relaxation stretching out ahead of me...bliss.  But I'm not that good at resting and relaxing so I've given myself a little project! 

Introducing...


I've never been quite sure about project life....or more specifically my ability to keep up with it, but I've become more and more intrigued and eventually I decided to give it ago in a miniature form just for the summer holidays.  I bought shares in a couple of different kits and got rather excited about trying it out.

I bought myself a really cool planner from Paperchase and set about making notes of the weeks events.  I found as the week went on I got better at documenting the little details that made each day different. 


Then at the end of the week I got the photos printed and set about planning what it would look like...



Next I organised some of the essentials so I could have everything I needed close to hand...




After this came the fun part...choosing the cards to go into each pocket.  So far I'm about halfway through but I'm impressed with how quick and easy it is compared to other yearbook type documenting I've done before...I may even be persuaded to give it a proper go next year!

So this is it so far...
