some everyday aj entries

Some of you may remember this journal from 2009 (it's since been replaced with the random memories aj which can be found here). I made a few entries in it then kind of neglected it for a long time. Decided to pull it back out to fill it with all the mini photos that I've been printing up from my pivi and selphy printers.

LOVE how I can get 5-6 memories recorded in one sitting (about an hour) with this documentation style. I aim to keep every entry simple. On the odd occasion, I might pull out some spray ink, etc. I still keep my journal & basic supplies in the green little box. The box is little so I have to be selective in what I put in it. Been toting it around all over the house and over to my MIL's to work on the journal whenever I get a chance. I find that limiting my supply choices helps me be a little more creative. If I find a page really bland, I will go into the studio later to add what I think is needed.


You've seen this one from some blog entries ago.
























I know I said that I was going to work on more of the Destinations aj but gotta go with where the flow takes me. And it's taking me to my 2010 Christmas aj LOL! Just a few more days of entries left to go and I'm going share. I know it's April 2011 but what the hey right! Happy hump day!

What a great little book of memories! I love the quick, simple style - little picture, little story, memory preserved!

Victoria, for sure - will make a post next week on what's in the gren box:).

Goodman, they're all pretty much 2"x3" (4 little photos to one 4x6 print). The ones that have the white border are instax prints from the pivi printer. The album size is approx 6"x8".

I love it! I can't wait to receive the Destination and Love You aj's, but now I think I need the random memories one, ha ha! I love seeing your aj's though, the way you fill it with photos and journaling.

LOVE the album, Eve!

Broke my heart you'd think differently about Mylo. While he is an older dog {maybe an ache or pain as we all get with age} he was your first pre-child. It was an unfortunate incident for everyone to learn by. He'd never hurt DD and she'd never knowingly hurt him either. Your a good mother.

You inspire me to "just get it accomplished" and not worry so much about the neatness of things! Amy Tangerine is also inspirational... thanks for introducing her to me through your blog.

Look forward to hearing details and visuals of the "green box!" My DD and my favorite color. :)

Cheers...

I love this journal/book what a great way to record what is going on for the moment, nice and simple but still creative and fun and quick!
