This will be my fourth year doing Project Life. What in the world? I can’t even believe it. Have a look at my pages from 2012, 2013, and 2014. Things have changed so much over the years. I think, overall, my pages just get more and more photo heavy. More simple. Here is the BIG goal for 2015…..
I WILL NOT SKIP A SINGLE WEEK!! Even though this is my fourth year making these albums I have never ever accomplished this. Usually, I really start to fizzle either over the summer when my kids are home or towards the end of the year when I’m just feeling OVER it. Even if I have to hire a dang babysitter once a week to get it done, I will.
What will stay the same…
- 12×12 format
- mostly photos
- by the week
What will change…
- more photos of me and David and all of us together
- monthly blogging
- more quotes. not inspirational, just things we say.
- more stories
- more inserts and bonus spreads
I’m only going to be sharing my pages once a month. I sorta feel like I bombard this blog with pl stuff, and that is not what this space was ever supposed to be. I will still be completing weekly spreads, just sharing once a month from now on. It’s also to save time. That’s 40 less album photo shoots, 40 less uploading sessions, 40 less editing and cropping and exporting sessions, and 40 less blog posts to write. While I liked that these post were always “something” I could blog about. It’s just time to change it up. You’ll see weeks 1 – 4 on January 26th.
Anyway, I really want this to be my best album yet. I’ve even created a little incentive program for me to stick with it, which I’ll share with you soon. I (and you) can do this!
So up top there is my 2015 title page! Take note of the new background haha. Just some old barn wood. 2012 was white, 2013 was our coffee table, 2014 was some chippy white boards, and now this. I like that each year has a different background so I can quickly know what year a particular page was from if I ever come across my pages on Pinterest or on my site.
Happy memory keeping friends.
Project life is a cool and simple form of scrapbooking created by Becky Higgins. To learn more click here. I create one spread per week to document our life. Here are all my pages from 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.
