The other night I sat down to 'get caught up' on project life. I knew I was a few weeks behind (a month and a half to be exact) and I knew I hadn't been taking many photos (long working hours + lack of sunlight). Feeling overwhelemd, I went and checked my email (avoidance) and Ali Edward's latest newsletter was waiting for me. In which she was talking about how she had gotten behind with her newsletter. It was just what I needed to hear. I decided there was no point stressing out about how far I was behind and how I was going to get caught up. It was in the past and the present was waiting.
That six week
period became one double page spread in my album.
loved Ali's repeating journalling technique that she used in her
newsletter and decided to use that too. I
picked a couple that I really related to and added
some of my own. I trimmed down a page proctor so it would hold 4 6x4 and
added the text + some pictures of the report writing process (one of
the reasons I had ended up so far behind)
One of the reasons I love this approach to memory keeping so much is
that it is a reflection on my life right now. And a few weeks ago, that
life was crazy busy. This project reflects that.
Are you a memory keeper? A collector of stuff?
What approach do you use to record those memories?
Do you use project life?
