I am a little behind in my memory keeping this month. (Okay, by ‘behind’ I really mean that I just hadn’t had a chance to look at my July images, so for some of you that version of ‘behind’ may be laughable.)
And yes, I realize that as cool as Project Life can be, you can still get behind if you overthink it.
Don’t overthink it.
Last month, I took over 500 photos. I deleted about 200 and then sat down and pulled around 55 photos out for possible inclusion in my book. (And yes, for any of you reading who may be new to my site—what? It’s possible!—I am making a digital book out of all my 2015 photos, just like I did last year.
I’ve been asked before, “But Cathy, how do you decide what to include? I have so many photos and I don’t know where to make the cuts!”
And again, I say to ye, “Don’t overthink it.”
I am brainstorming a new class to help you document one year with zero stress. Yes, you can still have fun with your photos and memories, but you can also leave the stress of overthinking behind. I’m not even sure what the class is right now, but I want people to experience the true liberation of not overthinking this album project and how a few hours a month is really all you need to create a beautiful document of your life. That’s my goal anyway.
But enough of my yakkin’! Here are my pages for July.
Note: I didn’t feel like doing a big, comprehensive journal recap, so guess what? I didn’t. Remember: overthinking is not welcome here.
And that my friends, is all she wrote. And scrapbooked. Literally.
