Hey, so, I’m still scrapbooking!
First things first: I LOVE PROJECT LIFE (more background on that here). I’m still working on my pages for January of this year, and on catching up with my 2014 album. I’m thrilled what what I have done.
Not because my pages are amazing and get pinned a million times as Project Life inspiration, because they don’t. They’re not that fancy. I’m very proud of many of them, but they are not magazine-worthy scrapbook pages.
And that’s ok! It’s awesome because it’s all together in one place for Natalie or Will or anyone else to look at and enjoy for years and years and years to come. I can show someone the scrapbook and they can see what our life was like, rather than handing them my phone and saying, “Scroll through all 900 pictures and I’m sure you’ll find something cute.”
So. Yes. Project Life is awesome and I can’t recommend it highly enough as a memory-keeping system.
I wanted to share some of my favorite pages today from my 2013 book:
LOOK AT THAT FACE. LOOK AT IT.
This one is from October 2013, when mama got her crafting groove back. I finally had the energy to start working on projects again, so I jumped right into organizing my fabric, knitting, scrapbooking, and a few sewing projects.
And the final page. Looking at these pictures reeeaaaally makes me want to hurry up and finish my 2014 book! Perhaps I’ll have some time today, since we have yet another snow day. *sob*
