So I have officially decided Sunday night that I will jump into the wagon and participate in A Week in the Life. Ali Edwards is doing it this week, and a whole bunch of scrappers so what better way than to tag along and get some inspiration from them too.
As for me, I have an idea which things to document – the PDF file Ali on her blog shared was great on tips.
So here is how I am doing collecting everything. I originally intended it to be all photos from my iPhone but decided last minute Monday that I want to have pictures from my camera too. I am already a pretty heavy document-er – I use IG (iPhone app), Twitter and blog a lot so what I needed was a way to make sure I collect them all. Enter Momento. It’s an iphone app that lets you document life and sync feeds too – which you can export. I syndicated my IG feed, twitter and personal blog feed to it & make one liner comments all throughout the day (Eg: 8AM My nose is itchy :P) and before I sleep, I run an export which allows it to be downloaded from my iTunes library. (I haven’t downloaded my Momento export feeds & pictures for yesterday).
I also take screenshots of relevant current events (news) or witty tweets (I would be documenting tweets). I have a spread in my planner where I have a timeline what happens. It’s very random and usually my handwriting is haphazard. Ill figure it out when I sit down to assemble the album.
What I document:
3. Self-Portraits – no matter how ugly I feel I am these days :P
4. Clothes we wear
6. Around the house
8. Places We go (which is pretty much house + church + my parents’ house + kids’ school)
Can’t wait how this looks like in the end!
