Project Life: Greece 2016.

Today I thought I'd share my Project Life pages about our trip to Greece this summer. I used last summer's Summer Manifesto kit by Paislee Press almost exclusively for these pages, and it was such a fun challenge to come up with so many different ways to combine the papers and elements! I also loved creating my own journalling + filler cards, something I haven't done that much so far. This kit is a great example of why I love everything that Liz Tamanaha creates, all her kits are so versatile + work so well together!

Trips in 2016: Parga part 2/2.

Project Life: July 2016.

This morning I finally had time to add the finishing touches to my July spreads. I often put together the pages without journalling first and fill that in later, sometimes not until the month is over when I have more perspective on what I want to include. This year I've been keeping notes on my phone about daily events - just some short keywords about each day, and it has made it so much easier to keep track of everything! I wish I had started doing this sooner. In any case, here are my eleven spreads for the month of July. (These do not include our trip to Greece which I have yet to finish and will be sharing separately.)

Life lately: July 2016.

Watching | I actually only watched one new film in July, and it's not really worth mentioning. We didn't spend enough time at home to leave much room for watching films or TV. Towards the end of the month we started watching the British TV series The Last Kingdom which started airing on Swedish TV. It's pretty good so far.

Listening to | A random mix of old and new summer hits.

Consuming | All the fresh berries... Black currant, red currant, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries and even some blackberries. And plenty of frozen yoghurt and ice cream of course.

Reading | While on vacation I finished Girl At War, The Storyteller and Gypsy Boy and now I'm about to finish Purple Hibiscus. Considering that I usually only read about a book a month I have to say I did pretty well. Our hotel in Parga had one of those convenient book swap shelves which helped me find new things to read :)

Visiting | My parents and P's parents. And it breaks my heart that this is the last time I can write that, because on the final Saturday of the month my father-in-law passed away, and life as we knew it will never be the same again. #fuckcancer

Enjoying | My three weeks of vacation, although of course considering the circumstances it wasn't as carefree as it usually is.

Making | July Project Life pages + renovating and decorating the dollhouse I bought in June.

Looking forward to | Things calming down a bit + getting back to my normal routines.
