Many of you have your Project Life kit.
You’re ready to roll.
You’re ready to ring in the New Year with a strong resolve to do something with your pictures … to tell your story … to document life.
GOOD. FOR. YOU.
Just when you thought I was taking a break from videos, here’s a video tutorial that will walk you through setting up your album, step by step.
Music is A Change Would Do You Good by Sheryl Crow.
SIDE NOTE: The album I put together in this video is actually a gift to our niece Kyra who is getting married next week. What I wouldn’t do to have an album like this from our first year of marriage (or any year, for that matter).
As I’ve said before — and I’ll say it again and again — it’s your story, your way. That means you set this album up however you want. It means your approach doesn’t have to be like your friend’s approach to Project Life. It means if you only want to include a few favorite pictures here & there, that’s great. It means you can try taking a picture every day if you’re feeling ambitious, but if it turns into monthly layouts instead of weekly layouts, so be it. It can be a mixed bag. Keep it chronological or focus completely on themes and topics in no chronological order. Maybe your approach is to go back through the past 5 years of pictures and get those memories into an album.
The album will adapt to your needs.
That said, those of you taking the picture-a-day approach may be contemplating this: On which day do I start? I am personally going to end our family’s 2010 Project Life on Saturday (tomorrow), January 1st. Our new 2011 Project Life will begin Sunday, January 2nd. The reason for this is that I’m a Sunday to Saturday girl. That’s how a calendar is laid out, so that’s how I see weeks in my head. And so that’s how I lay out my weekly layouts in Project Life.
How about you? What’s your approach? (If you haven’t already looked, there are some awesome ideas & links in yesterday’s post.)
