I’ve finally gotten enough caught up with Project Life that I’ve started editing photos from December.
What I’ve been trying to do is just take photos all day. Journal a little bit in my Blurb template for the appropriate day.
Then once I have all the photos edited, I can just drag-and-drop them in to the right day and have it almost be done.
*Trying* I said.
Always an obstacle: I work until 11p, don’t get home til almost midnight, and go to bed immediately (because I’m actually a ‘morning person’) … so any journaling will be done the next day.
I’m realizing that we are doing *very little* holidayish things this month. This is more of a day-to-day book for the most part. BUT my family is coming into town for several days before Christmas so at least we’ll have that.
blog promotion tip: It looks like Ali is including a linkup for every day of December Daily. So if you’re keeping up every day and blogging about it, make sure you go over there to add your appropriate link and encourage new readers to come find your site!
Sidenote: I’m working on putting together a December Daily project page. Let me know if there is anything specific you’d like to see on a landing page like that.
I’ve slightly changed my template. I decided I will NOT be moving the date label around (like last year) so instead I centered the date label so it at least looks deliberate.
Some examples of my pages so far (I didn’t realize how many family-in-the-mirror photos I had taken until I put these together!)
