Scrapbook Your Year with Cathy Zielske

It finally happened. I had a month wherein I took less than 100 photos. I cannot recall a month with that few images in years. Years, I tell ya.

So what did I do? Well, after editing shots down and deleting, I took what I had and said: work with it.

I only ended up creating two pages for my year-long album and you know what? That’s perfectly okay. Part of this approach is working with what you have and not stressing out that you don’t have the perfect album photos (whatever those really are, right?). You work with what you have and move on. Done and done and all part of the story.

I only have one photo of the hubs and exactly none photos of the college freshman boy. What’s a scrapbooker to do? Not sweat it, that’s what.

Here are my two pages for February.

PHOTOS TAKEN: 77 (after culling)

PHOTOS USED: 11

A mix of images for the first page featured the only shot of Dan, his face obscured behind a book. And one single selfie of my daughter. Oh, and me. There were actually a lot of pics of me in February. It was a big selfie month, I guess.

A few more shots of me and a few shots sent to me by my daughter from her vantage point, plus the snow out our back window. And that’s it.

It’s really not a big deal if you have a month where you don’t take a lot of photos. this felt pretty liberating, actually, to know that it’s just a part of a larger year-long picture. As I said, done and done and now we’re onto March.

(My birthday month, for those keeping track!) More on that later.

    I am in the same boat! Jan & Feb are both very thin when it comes to how many pictures I took. I am thinking about doing a 1st quarter spread instead of monthly!

      And that would be great! Can you imagine a book that just had quarterly spreads for multiple years? It’d be pretty great!

    I thoroughly enjoyed completing Scrapbook Your Year in 2018; I chose to complete a two page spread every month. I, too, didn’t always have a lot of photos, but I mostly wanted to right-size my first 100% digital scrapbook project! Thanks, Cathy, for your relatable approach to handling life and helping us document our lives!
