I’m in the process of turning some of these Year of Weekends pages into Flight Plans (layered templates) and I have three of them ready to go for Thursday (including this one). Which is NOT the top secret project I was working on this past weekend. Because I just told you. And that would make me the worst secret-keeper EVER.
JOURNALING | i think one of the most unfortunate side effects of working on “secret projects” is that i don’t really get the chance to explain to people why i’m missing in action – and I spent this entire weekend doing just that: working on secret projects that won’t come to fruition for several more weeks. Practically glued to my chair, with empty coffee cups – for fuel! – strewn about my desk, trying to organize all of my scatterbrained notes and ideas into neat little (coherent) packages. Then in the final hours, deciding to go a totally different direction anyway.
MATERIALS | Flight Plan No. 8 (available 3/10) and Time Capsule by One Little Bird
About This Project: A Year of Weekends is an ongoing album project that embodies my desire to stay grounded in the everyday unsung moments that make up the weekends of my life while also giving me a playground to express myself through design and storytelling – without any pressure to be poignant or a trendsetter. My goal is to always design these pages around products I already own or designed myself, which allows me to revisit some of my favorite kits and products and either use items for the first time or see previously used products in a whole new light. Sometimes the pages will be irreverent, other times they’ll be serious or emotional, but all of them are created in celebration of the extraordinarily ordinary moments that fill the 48 hours of each weekend.
Feel free to join in and post links to your own pages in the comments. Don’t worry about what products you use, all stories are welcome.
