Project Life Week 5

Week five is complete :)
Again, still loving this project so much.
This week brought on a TON of emotions for me, so there seems to be more journaling than photos but I still really like how it turned out.
I literally chased the light from one room to another to get these photos and ended up having to take the book outside for the best lighting.  This resulted in a bit of a glare in some of the photos but hopefully you can look past that :)

Like I said, week 5 was an emotional roller coaster over here.  All of it was good but it was emotional to say the least.  

My sister found out she is having a boy!  We met the birth mother for our baby and confirmed that we are having a girl :)  I have my before and after feelings journaled from the day we met "E."  I was able to journal on pages and slip them behind photos as well which is another reason I love this project.  I put together our stroller and car seat for when we need it.  

Our car seat came with a book called, "Heading home with your Newborn."  It pretty much goes over everything you can think of from sleeping, feeding, crying, etc.  I have been reading it and highlighting it like crazy.  We started a new Bible Study on the book of Nehemiah and I am already in love.  I registered at Target because my church friends are throwing me and baby an emergency shower this coming up weekend.  I had a sleepover at my sisters and then we finished the weekend with a Pinterest Party!!
Good times.

I also added an extra insert page this week to showcase all of my photos from the January Photo a Day challenge on Instagram.  I had a lot of fun doing the project and enjoyed my photos so I wanted to add it in at the end of January.

On the back of the insert, I added photos that I took these week while crocheting a baby blanket in the Hudson Bay style.
That's it!!
On to next week :)

  1. Looks awesome! I am all caught up on PL after my vacation and finished week 5 yesterday. I love this project more and more each week!

  2. it was a week of good news in the land of janel. digging the yarn page with the color & texture.

  3. This is so sweet and creative. I meant to comment on your earlier posts, but I wanted to tell you how happy I am for you and your husband. I'll never forget that feeling of elation, excitement, anxiety and expectation after the match. I am praying that everything goes smoothly - just remember to take things one day at a time - this is SUCH a sweet time for you and your husband.

  4. Oooh... are you liking the Nehemiah study? I lead Bible studies with my mentor at church and that was one I wanted to consider for our next. It looked really good.

    All your project life posts are making me so jealous! I have no printer and no job... so it's not really a very feasible project for me right now. I am taking Instagram photos every day and want to do something with them eventually. Maybe I can do Project Life next year!

  5. look great,you should do a DIY of all your great techniques.
    I did a little adaptation of project life in my blog...since those products are not available in Qu├ębec.

    it'S so awesome that you'll be a parent soon.Can't wait to be one too.

  6. Looks great!

  7. I adore your project! It's just lovely!

  10. Janel, do you print your pics from a home printer? I need to journal more often. Any advice on picture printing? I need a corner cutter to round them, I love the look.


Thank you so much for commenting!! xo
