I did it. I finished all of my pages for Project Life, Year Twenty-Fourteen.
Okay, I should back up. Next, of course, will be getting a bound book made but as I was exporting all of my PSDs to JPEGs, I realized, “Oh crap! I need to have a cover for this book?” And I’ll be honest. I thought, “Noooo! Not another thing for it. Really?”
So for today’s post, I do not have a cover ready to show you. But I can remind you where I started.
Sigh. It seems like just 52 weeks ago, doesn’t it? I used this set (updated for 2015) and I am probably going to use it again in some form for this coming year. What am I doing for 2015? I’ll get to that in just a sec. For now, the final weeks of my album. And yes, they are all single pages.
I’m still not sure where I will print my book but I will report back as soon as I design the cover for this album.
And what am I doing for this coming year? I’m not completely sure.
Part of me wants to do the same thing. I love this simple approach. I love the idea of a digital book. I also love the idea of a single page per week. Considering we’re already in Week 2, I suppose I should commit already. One thing I know I will do is to set up my iPhoto for 2015 using Smart Folders by week. That has been the single best organization approach for me. It makes going back to play catch up so, so much easier.
So for today, I share the final pages. I’m going to be working on the cover and will share that when it’s ready.
My goal for memory keeping in 2015 is two-fold: simple and real. That’s it.
I recently was a guest storyteller in Ali Edwards’ new StoryKit™ subscription/classroom. True, I was asked to use her products, but I found myself completely inspired by a) focusing on a story theme and b) not using my own products in a promotional aspect. Does that make sense? It wasn’t about adding to my bottom line (and believe me, business is down from previous years), but it was about telling a story I wanted to tell, one that I didn’t even know I needed to share.
I have much to share with you in the coming days about goals and hopes and methods and the like.
Today, we wrap up Project Life.
Much more to come, people. So much more.
