So, I’m starting Project Life again.

You know how sometimes you randomly come across a bunch of pictures and words and inspirational stuff that seems like a hint from the universe? Well, that’s how I’ve been feeling about Project Life lately. It’s a project I’ve been wanting to do ever since I first discovered it on Ali Edwards’ blog back when there was only one PL kit available. That’s changed now, huh.

With the recent CHA Create-n-Connect summer show I feel almost forced to give Project Life another go (I mean, Cut & Paste mini kit, could you be any cuter?). But how will I do it with minimal guilt and hassle? And maximum memory-keeping value?

Above is my list for week 30. And below is how I incorporated it into a minimal Project Life format. The supply list is at the bottom of the post.


Nina Christensen // Project Life week 30

Somehow, starting in the middle of the year I feel less pressure. Or maybe I’ve just failed enough projects by now that I don’t feel as nervous about taking on a project that I don’t know I will keep up. ;) This seems doable, though. A list and a photo per week. Some journaling if I feel like it, and a week numbers card. That’s it.

If you’re doing Project Life how do you approach it?

And could you start Project Life in the middle of a year, like I did?
