In Week 9 I took 53 combined photos (iPhone shots + DSLR shots). Many of them were multiple shots of the same thing/scene. It took me about three minutes to say: one page for Project Life.
As soon as I release myself from the pressure to make a spread, I feel light and creative and happy. This, as you know, is a better alternative than feeling dark and blocked and stressed.
Granted, if I have a ton of shots to play with, it’s no problem to do a typical two-page spread, but the key is to make the decision and lose the stress.
This project doesn’t have to be stressful.
Let’s get to it:
No blurred out privacy images for this week. Sometimes, if there is an image in question, I’ll ask. Other times, I make assumptions. This week: assumptions. (Did you miss the free Privacy Label download? If so, click here.)
Again, my weekly recaps will never be mistaken for Pulitzer Prize-winning prose. It’s a very simple, journalistic recap. In fact, by recapping on one card each week, it does free me up to simply fill the rest of the slots with photos.
I know that it’s fun to collection cool Project Life cards and other journaling card files, but if you just feel like making one simple highlights card, you can fill in the rest with photos or filler cards that require no extra journaling.
And speaking of extra journaling… oh, honey.
Definitely a big low of the week. I’ve never experienced stitches with either of my children, knock on wood. But I can now say I have with my husband.
He was super brave.
And that is all for Week Nine.
