Hey guys! It feels so good to be working in my album again! Basically, I plan to sorta lump June-Sept together and backtrack with themed spreads. Then I’ll start fresh with weekly ones beginning this week. I’ll be posting about those on Sundays. I think the key to being successful in keeping up with your project life album is to not be a perfectionist (which is hard for me). But ya know, when life gets busy and you fall behind, don’t stress, just start new that week and don’t worry about it! Your kids aren’t gonna care that a week of their childhood isn’t in this album! It’s just about doing what you can, when you can. My albums have missing weeks and holes all in them, and while it bugs me a little, I’m not gonna just give up on making these books because they aren’t perfect.
In other news I upgraded my printer from the Canon Pixma MG6320 to the Canon Pixma MG7120. The 6320 stopped printing blacks completely. Canon replaced the print head, sent an entirely new printer, gave me phone technical support, and then it STILL didn’t fix it! I decided to just buy the new model, but I bought a 4 year protection plan so if anything happens again they’ll just send me a new one. Glad to have a printer printing beautiful photos again. Printers can be such a PAIN!
So, here’s how I documented our beach trip. I just love all the blues and aquas!
The left side photos are all photos taken with my underwater camera.
