Oh my, I have really fallen behind working in the kid's journals. With new school schedules this year, I'm having a hard time finding art-making time. When I create, I like to have uninterrupted blocks of time, but I've lost those due to our schedule. Nevertheless, I've found some time recently to do a couple spreads in Avery's book.
The first is about her first haircut. She just got a little trim to clip some of the scraggly baby ends off, but it was a fun event! She did so well (because she watched big brothers get their haircuts first), and looked so cute sitting up in the seat! I attached a bit of her hair to the page just like I did in Riley's and Noah's first haircut pages.
Next is a page about her love of pizza. Every single time she sits down for a meal, she asks for "zah!", literally. She LOVES it (can't say that I blame her!).
I know I've mentioned it here before, but I'm so torn about how to continue with these journals. I love that I've done them, and I love looking through them, but it's becoming such a struggle to keep up with them. The last spread I did for Riley was when he turned five (15 months ago!). Noah turns five next month, so I'm considering stopping his then as well.
I'm looking into Project Life as a way to continue. This looks like a quick, simple way to do a child's journal- I could get as artistic as I want with it, without feeling too overwhelmed. And I could easily go back and catch up with the time that I've missed with Riley. Have any of you done Project Life? Any thoughts?
