This is the right side of week 1 and I included a few pieces of my week: a list from my trip to Target and a little part of a "brain" that I used at work one day that week. Also included a picture of a dinner we had that week, made by my mother in law.
And here is the full spread. I'm pretty happy with how this first week turned out. It is a pretty good representation of our week. I want to include more photos of my family in the next week. I have to get my boys used to seeing me with my camera a lot more often. My oldest son, Zachery, really doesn't care to have his picture taken these days but he is going to have to get used to it. My little guy, Benjamin, is pretty easy going most of the time and just smiles and hams it up for me.
I am extremely happy with my new Epson R2000 wide format printer and loved being able to print my photos from the convenience of my own home. It made it simple to work on my pages. No stopping and waiting to pick up images from my local Costco or Target.
I am also super happy to finally have a workbench and my own creative space in our new home. It's not ideal (as in a complete room to myself) but it will do for now. The bench I bought is actually a kitchen island workspace in a butcher block style but it is actually perfect for using as a scrap table. It is waist height so I can stand and scrap which is easier for me. I like the perspective of being a little above my projects. Plus it has several drawers and a place for baskets as well. I will share photos when I have it a little more organized. I am planning to put some shelves above the bench to store a few items as well. I'll be looking for interesting ideas for small spaces in the coming weeks to help me plan my own space.
