Part of me is happier because this approach fits my life really well right now. I am not taking a crazy number of photos (unless I’m at an ultimate tournament) and having recently gone through all of my scrapbooks, I realize how little space I have for more traditional albums.
You guys know this, right? I don’t have a custom scrap room with shelving galore. I also don’t presently have other areas where album storage would make sense. That may happen further down the line, but furniture to accommodate scrapbooks is going to be way down the list behind college tuition, a new dishwasher and possibly a new car. You feel me?
Such is the need for economy of space and the digital book I made last year? It takes up less space.
People ask me frequently how I do this project. Not the mechanics of it, although sometimes those questions arise, but how do I narrow all these images of my life down into such a tight little package. I’ve been thinking about this a lot and I’m going to do some serious brainstorming to create a workshop for 2016 to help women narrow their focus and create a monthly document of life with the end goal being a printed book or digital pages for a traditional 3-ring binder. More on that later, but for now, here are my pages for June.
