I grabbed this from a project I had done back in April. But this is a great way to use your photos and document a week in your life as well. I won’t go through the entire week just now (moving the series over from another blog), but would like to share one day in my week with you today.
I decided to begin my 2015 scrapbooking journey by making a hybrid album called: WEEK IN MY LIFE WITH FLY LADY.
Some of you may know that we’ve spent the past several months doing an extensive remodel, decluttering, reorganizing of our home. This huge task led me back to Fly Lady. I’ve been subscribed to her newsletter for the past couple years…….but haven’t followed through. I began her process once again a couple weeks ago and decided to share a Week In My Life with Fly Lady with all of you.
My daily tasks may vary a bit from Fly Lady’s simply because my life is structured differently than hers and she encourages us to make the routines/habits/tasks our own in order for the entire process to work for each individual.
I’ll begin by posting my pages day by day and THEN revealing the entire 6 x 8 hybrid album from cover to cover and explaining how I made it.
I based my album on Ali Edwards’ Week In The Life series. I created my own page templates (yes, they look pretty much like hers but may vary as the week goes on.
I have to admit that when I first started searching her site and trying to put together my own routine, it seemed like such a daunting task, HOWEVER, the more I read and once I began…….it’s truly quite easy. NOT so time consuming as you’d think.
For instance, today’s cleaning out the refrigerator and all the swishing and swiping and decluttering is geared for 15 minutes at a time. 15 minutes………that’s really not long at all. And the BIG thing to remember, especially with the decluttering of things throughout the house…….the job eventually gets DONE and then you only have some hot spots to keep an eye on. Fly Lady reminds us that our homes didn’t get cluttered overnight and they won’t be decluttered overnight and then it’s just a matter of those routines becoming just that……..routines and habits that you don’t even have to think about anymore, they come automatically!
BABY STEPS……..that’s what she says……….BABY STEPS……….and that’s what I’m doing and have seen such a difference in just the past 2 weeks!
If you’re suffering from CHAOS (can’t have anyone over syndrome), hop on over and let Fly Lady start you on your own journey!
That’s it for today, housework is done, I’m off to play!
Hugs and Have A Creative 31 Days!
