Scrapbooking// Project Life
I have a bunch of pages and Project Life spreads that I need to photograph and share here! Project life has been the perfect fit for me. It gives me a simple and organized approach to keeping up with our pictures and stories, while freeing me to create traditional 12x12 pages in whatever haphazard, disorganized manner I please. You see, I haven't ever enjoyed creating 12x12 pages in chronological order--I like being able to pick the pictures and stories that speak to me in the moment, no matter how old or recent they may be. However, while I liked a more carefree approach to creating pages, I always felt a bit stressed about missing out on the here and now, and forgetting the specifics while they were fresh on my mind. With Project Life, I can easily keep up with the day to day, making sure I don't miss the everyday moments as they are happening. I've found it easier to create 12x12 pages in whatever order I like, while knowing that I'm not getting behind, or missing out on the here and now.
There is no right or wrong way to scrapbook, but my creative right-brained self is happy to have found a system that seems to be working to help me keep it organized, creative, and productive.
