2015 Scrapbooking/Photographer plans? Anybody?

A post…. hey a post!   No pictures this time though (is that legal)?  Sometimes I think the pictures keep me from posting – even though I love taking pictures – it just adds enough “extra” time that I end up not getting a post written.

So here’s today’s thought.  I put this up on facebook on my page wall & in my chat group (hey come like & join both please!)

What are your plans for 2015? Mine is to actually pull out some paper, maybe finish baby albums. For yearly documenting I am just taking pictures at this point…. trying to be intentional about capturing memories, posting to instagram/flickr/facebook with comments so that someday I have that “journaling” to go by.

I have seen a few scrapbookers who were hard core Project Lifers abandon it this year! I think what’s happening to them is they are designers, scrapbookers who liked the simplicity of PL, but ended up just designing very detailed pocket images/pages! That’s more work than they were doing before! Several are shifting to a monthly layout in various forms. I still like the PL concept for those who can stick to the kits…. I have always had a hard time with that & tend to add alot to mine…. thus never finishing!/

Here are a few posts…

Project Life 2012 | Week 1

My first attempt at Project Life is this year.  On the very positive side I am within a few weeks of caught-up (in my album not the blog)!  On the negative side I feel like I am including too many photos and not enough “fun” stuff.  I can change that as the year goes on though.  I think a key will be to grab fun things as we do them & put them WITH the album.  The fun decorations stuff I will have to work on my photo obsession a bit to pare down what I want to print!
