Project Life: Glimpses from 2005-2007.

Project Life: February 2017.

In some ways February felt long but at the same time it went by so quickly! I "only" filled up five spreads this month but that's still one more than February of last year.

I started by introducing the month as usual... The journalling card on the left is from the Everyday Edition, everything else is from the Calendar card from the Project 52 Fresh Edition. I've changed the calendar card so the weeks are Monday-Sunday.

A spread about our first outing of the year - to a wintery Karlskrona. The cards are a mix of Project 52 Fresh and It's A Man's World (some items have been recoloured).

A spread that's mostly about Valentine's Day. Journalling card from the Everyday Edition, everything else from the A Love Story kit by Paislee Press.

A little more about the month in general + spring getting here.* Products from the Moments Like These Edition (recolured). "There's always tomorrow" stamp from the Say Yes To kit by Paislee Press.

Finally, a spread about an outing we went on to Aboda klint (just like last year in February). Products are a mix of Project 52 Fresh and the Goes With Everything papers by Paislee Press.

*If anyone's wondering why the sad event that I mentioned on Instagram in February doesn't seem to be included here it's actually mentioned in the journalling + I document that aspect of my life in more detail elsewhere.

Project Life is a memory keeping system created by Becky Higgins. You can learn more about it here. Digital page protectors by Valorie Wibbens.

Life Lately: February 2017.

Watching | I watched three new (to me) films in February - Tallulah, Loving and Manchester by the Sea. All were watchable but I found Loving the most memorable + moving. It's so hard to wrap my head around that this was the reality for many people not very long ago (and is for many in the LGBTQ community today, still). On TV we didn't watch anything very memorable other than my guilty pleasure show Sofias änglar.

Listening to | Nothing really stands out that I can remember. I spent a lot of time at home in February, but I preferred silence over music.

Consuming | My beloved semlas of course.

Reading | Nowhere's Child which was one of the books I bought on the annual book sale. I read it quickly because I was so curious to learn what would happen, but in the end I was a bit disappointed by it because I feel like there were questions that should have been answered and parts that were included that felt somewhat unnecessary. Nonetheless it was fascinating to read about an aspect of WWII that I wasn't very familiar with the details of beforehand.

Visiting | My parents, P's mum + my mum's godparents.

Enjoying | All the shopping I did. Most notably I bought a Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens which I've had my eyes on for quite some time. I haven't had the opportunity to try it out all that much yet, and I am looking forward to getting to know it better. Other than that I bought some clothes for spring, booked a weekend trip for March, bought some books on the aforementioned book sale + a whole lot of other things when my mum and I went to Ullared. Retail therapy, yes, and I don't feel the slightest bit guilty about it ;) Other than that I enjoyed the arrival of spring, the sunny days we had at the end of the month + the outings we went on.

Making | Little changes around our home + Project Life pages.

Looking forward to | Going to Budapest in March!
