Just a quick little post to round up my 2012 Project Life Journey.
1. PHOTO A DAY – I am still amazed at being able to take a photo a day. It’s a habit now and for me has been the cornerstone to being able to complete weekly layouts with ease and confidence. No, not all the photos are stellar but, they capture life and that’s good enough for me.
2. TIME CAPSULE – I am so grateful for the Becky Higgins Project Life format. It has made it possible to organise and document the many photos that I took though the year but, not only that, it’s allowed me to add notes and journalling that make the albums into a real story about us. A story that I hope one day someone will enjoy reading as much as I have enjoyed creating. At very least help us as a family remember the things that are so easily forgotten. Funnily, We have already used it as a reference in this 12 months and it has solved arguments such as “do you remember what colour…..?”, “Was it May or July that we….?. You get the picture.
3. MY ALBUM, MY WAY – I learned that it’s ok to change your your mind on he design you use, the colours and the feel of things from week to week. So far, no one that has flipped though my albums has noticed as they are generally too taken away with the content. Which is what’s it’s really all about. The Pictures and the stories.
So how many albums did I end up with for 2012? Two. There is just no way to fit mine into one because as you can see I like to add ‘bits’.
Finally, I thought in closing I’d also share a picture of my very last page. I felt the last page had to be simple (just like my first) and this was it.
I hope you have enjoyed following my journey, am humbled that you have dropped by my blog to look around or even to leave me one of the many lovely comments. I look forward to sharing more with you in my 2013 pages!
