2020 Project Life :: April Part 2
I hope you’re all doing well. Back in April, we were still very much home almost all the time (my husband worked and still works in an office so he had to go in). This Project Life spread includes foods we ate during quarantine/self-isolation/social distancing and how we celebrated my husband’s birthday during this time.
We got a food and wine box from our favourite restaurant in Cinque Terre, Nessun Dorma. I still have to post the photos from Cinque Terre one of these days; it is a beautiful place. Everything was great but the pesto was our favourite; the wine was sooo good but we couldn’t pick a favourite!
A few months ago, I got the recipe from my mom for picadillo and arroz Mexicano.. and I don’t usually make them together because Mexican rice can take a bit of time, but sometimes, it’s good to take the time and it is so delicious.
I must admit that after I filmed the video below, I reprinted the photo of the still from Animal Crossing and re-wrote the journaling because I didn’t like how it had come out. I was much happier with the second version.
Some background information on how I document: I document Project Life monthly, and I don’t limit the number of spreads that I do per month. I print my photos at home using an Epson PictureMate PM-400 for most of my photos under 5×7 on Epson paper; Canon Pixma Pro-100 for anything larger on Kirkland photo paper (from Costco) for anything 8.5″x11″ and under; for the 13×19 photos I used on this spread, I used Canon Pro Luster photo paper. To printing journaling, elements and filler cards, I use an Epson ET-2650, and for printing on vellum, I use a Canon laser printer – LB6030w. The photo pocket pages are held in a Pinnacle album from Walmart, and the 6×12 inserts I use are from Becky Higgins – Design H My roller date stamp is 1Canoe2.
