Project Lifebook Part II

Yesterday we talked about the general idea of a LifeBook. Today, we'll dive into specifics.


Tabs/Divider Pages

Thinking of the roles I take on in life inspired the tabs I created. Since this is such a personal journal, you could include anything you want. I'll give you my initial list and then talk more about other ideas.



Prayer journal
Daughter of the King
Wife of Phil
Mom of Zane
Writer
Artist/Creator of neat stuff
Projects
Friends
Things I've helped people with (Serving others)
Fun things we've done
Good Memories
Goals
Accomplishments
Books I've Read/Books to Read
Movies I've Watched/Movies to Watch
Birthday/Christmas Planner
Lessons Learned



After I dug through my supplies, I found the neat charms I glued to the tabs.



Faith
Dream
Believe
Friendship
Memories
Peace
Wisdom
Hope



So I made those my divider page tabs and behind each of those, I broke it down like this:

Jen explains hers, she has different tabs. She's adding a sketchbook. If you're redecorating you could add a section to glue cool fabric swatches or pictures from magazines of elements you like for your project. If you're homeschooling, you could add a tab for that, if you're a parent or a grandparent, you could add a tab for each child, an heirloom journal of sorts.

The possibilities are endless.

The key to this project is to make it custom fit to who you are in life.

I thought about adding a calendar, but honestly, I wanted to keep my calendar/planner separate. I wanted this to be about living life to the fullest, living the abundant life God has told us about.



Tomorrow, I'll post some pictures of the kid's LifeBooks.

I really do want to add a sketchbook to mine next time. I had a great idea for a sunroom/office that I wanted to draw out.

Plus, I want to add some photo sleeves at the beginning for pics of the kiddos.

See, already thinking of the next one.

I don't know that I want a calendar in mine either. I just want to dream, not think too much about reality, LOL.

Great ideas. I love the different sections you're including.
