Another week down. Week 41! Another week of us attempting to get settled in and exploring Austin. I really like that I have these details captured because I am sure I would have forgotten those first few weeks. It was kind of a whirlwind.
Supplies Used: Studio Calico Sundrifter Paper, Simple Stories Sn@P Letter Stickers, Studio Calico Tiny Letter Stickers from PL Kit, Freckled Fawn Yellow Airmail Washi, BasicGrey Candy Buttons, Glitz Design Letter Stickers, My Mind's Eye Enamel Dots (can't find link), BasicGrey Label | [affiliate links used]
Here is the left side. We got our stuff from the movers this week! I vividly remember feeling like I didn't even want our stuff to come. In Chicago we had so much junk. Then we moved to Austin and had to live out of a suitcase for a few weeks. It was refreshing to only have the essentials on hand.
Here is the front of an insert I added this week. Everything we were doing in Austin these first few weeks was new, so I kept everything and had so much stuff to include. I cut down a Design E page to hold our stuff.
The main reason I chose the Design E page was that I wanted to include this napkin. We went out on Friday night of this week and talked to a few locals. One guy wrote down all these places that he thought we should check out. I thought it was really nice that he took the time to do that. The Design E pockets are 6x6" so it was perfect for this sort of thing.
On the back of the insert, I cropped and enlarged an Instagram of a mural in our neighborhood. I had it printed at Persnickety Prints at 6x12" and just cut it in half.
Supplies Used: Studio Calico 'Printshop' Vellum Stickers, Crate Paper Label, Uni-ball Signo White Gel Pen, Studio Calico Chipboard 'Howdy' Sticker (super old, can't find a link!), Amy Tangerine 6x6' Paper Pad, Fancy Pants Striped Paper, Freckled Fawn Aqua Airmail Washi, Studio Calico Cuppa 4x6" Paper Pad, Dear Lizzy Snippet | [affiliate links used]
Here is the right side. Lots of fun things happening.
I am trying my best to include Billy in our pages. Sometimes, he's not up for me taking a thousand photos of him so I find other ways to get him in there. Or I'm caught up in just getting the pages done that I forget. But anything I include is better than nothing. Above are 2 examples of me trying to get him in there.
And that was our week! It's fun to document and share these new experiences in our album.
