little pencil sketches of the pocket pages i'm using and fill in where the photos will work best and try to remember to leave pockets empty for pretties (i'm notorious for going heavy on the photos!). when i get to the end of a month, i reserve a pocket to use as a marker denoting a new month starting. that's it. and then i go back to my old ways of NOT scrapbooking chronologically. that's right. i flip through my pages and scrap where the notion strikes. for example, this spread is from june and i just finished it last week. it was the last holdout in the first two albums. i have two albums completely finished. JANUARY THROUGH AUGUST OF 2013 IS COMPLETELY RECORDED. i can hardly believe it. it's so awesome. gabriel enjoys it tremendously. it's fabulous. and am i stressed about september through december not being done? NOT AT ALL! i mean, gosh. what am i going to do when he goes off to college? i'll need something to keep me busy! i will say that i have my photos printed and slotted all the way through december 12th. and the rest of december is edited and awaiting printing (i'm just low on ink, so soon. very soon). so basically all of 2014 is available to look at and enjoy. this is way more than can be said for any other year. i say i am more "caught up" than ever before in my scrapping history. wowzas! (btw, sorry for the less than stellar photos. i've been trying to do better with that, but i was experimenting photographing in my craft room. it didn't go as well as i had hoped. i left my feet in the photo as they amused me and i thought they might amuse you too. i did go back and redo the 2014 intro page at the top this morning, but was too lazy to do the rest. ;).
one i've started for 2012. is she crazy? no! it's fun, i tell you! i've already gotten october and november done in that one and have the pictures printed and slotted for december. rock on!
my plan from here is more of the same. the two finished albums will move to the living room for g and his little friends to enjoy. i will continue plugging along at 2013 and 2012 as i begin 2014. i definitely need to buy some more albums. at some point i'd like to analyze previous years. but like i said, when g goes to college i'll have way too much time on my hands and will be ever so thankful for scrappy endeavors to keep me busy. :)
how about you? any project life planned for 2014?
