Falling behind on Project Life is okay. It means that you’re doing something right in your life (ie: living). But having a collection of your memories and the life that you’re busy living is really cool. And it’s nice to capture everything before you forget. That’s why, in the middle of the year, we’re doing an unofficial Project Life catch up. We? Everyone who isn’t up to date with their Project Life and wants to do something about it. Whether that is one week behind, or one year behind. If you want to catch up, join us, and be part of a group cheerleading. Encourage, and be encouraged. It’s easier to do it in a group than alone.
As part of the mass catch up, Olya made these gorgeous inspirational printables. My contribution? A planner. This is a formalised version of what worked for me.
This is not going to catch up on Project Life for you. It’s not even going to tell you how to do it. What it is going to do is give you a framework for making your catch up as easy as possible.
It includes the following pages, and you can use them in any order you’d like:
You can also choose to use each planner page per week, or one for the entire catch up.
My favourite thing about falling behind in Project Life is that I now have a whole bunch of weeks to experiment on.
I may have gone a bit crazy with the confetti. My number one rule to getting things done? Trick myself into thinking that they are a lot more fun than they actually are. This is easily done with gold sequins.
And if you wanted help with starting, I have a few links for you. No guide is going to work for everyone, but I have a few tips on how I did it here, Olya and Amelia are following this guide and Lauren has her own plan too. Search the #letscatchuponprojectlife tag on Instagram to see how everyone else is doing it. Share your tips and photos along the way. There’s no pressure. If you have the entire 2013 and 2014 to catch up on, but only manage to do one week, well that’s completely fine. That’s one week more than nothing, and maybe someone else can learn from you.In the end, however, no matter how many guides you read, you’re just going to have to dive in head first and do it. Write your own Grand Plan.
Okay, okay, I’ll stop talking and get to the good stuff.
Download the overenthusiastic glitter version or the glitter-free version in my Glitter Mail Resource Library, just make sure you’re signed up and you’ll get immediate access.
These are editable which means that you can type into them and print like that if you like. You can also print them at any size. Just google the instructions. You can use it as you wish, just don’t claim it as your own. As Olya says, that’s a thumbs down.
I also have a matching Project Life Planner that goes hand in hand with the catch up that will be coming to my Glitter Mail subscribers for free on Friday. It includes over 30 page protector designs (Design A to Z, 6×8 styles, coin protector, and trading card protector). You have to be subscribed to receive it, and you have to subscribe before Friday so that you can receive it. So make sure that you sign up for that.
So who is with us?
