Project Life 2014 - Week 5

January 26 - February 1, 2014:

Playing catch-up on sharing my Project Life layouts. Around here, during Week 5 of 2014, life was pretty satisfying. We experienced our own version of winter here on Maui, which I know my mainland readers will laugh at, but we're just not used to it! It was cold for us (low 50s at night and only getting into the mid 70s during the day) all week and we got lots of much-needed rain. Honestly, even though we're not accustomed to that kind of "winter weather", it was kind of nice! We spent the evenings bundled up on the couch under quilts, watching movies, and I got to break out my comfy sweatpants and sweatshirts! Appropriately, Dean had a Snowman Project due to school, where he had to design and build a snowman. He did great. Wednesday I started another Handbuilding with Clay class up at the Hui. I took a similar class last fall and LOVED it! I'm not that good, but I'm thoroughly enjoying getting my hands dirty and stepping out of my creative comfort zone. And now I want a kiln to use at home! We celebrated Chinese New Year with an authentic Chinese Dinner from Panda Express (ha!) and Dean got to feed the lion a red money envelope at his school's Chinese New Year celebration Lion Dance. And finally, Saturday we attended a fun birthday party at Kalama Park for one of Dean's friends from preschool. And that sums up another fun and busy week for us.

Product Used: Kept things super simple - pretty much all Coral with the exception of one 3x4 filler card from Jade. I added the Number 5 from Emily Merritt's Dotted Numbers to mark my week, but otherwise very little embellishment other than the fortunes from our fortune cookies for our CNY dinner. I did use my new

And that's it for Week 5. How is everyone else doing? Keeping up? Catching up? 

I will be sharing a link to this post on The Mom Creative blog.

Great spread! I love your Year of the Horse card with the fortunes. Might have to steal that idea :o).
Sounds like you had the perfect burst of Winter weather. I love it when it's just cold enough for blankets and sweats.

Hi Jen, I'm visiting from The Mom Creative. :) I love your pages! I've been eying the Coral edition (the digital version), but haven't bought it yet. Love your son's snowman! Everyone is having a crazy winter this year! Ha! :) My 9-year-old son pointed out the other day that it's now week 8, which means I'm 4 weeks behind on Project Life. Lol.
