{Project Life} Mad dash to catch up

I got myself woefully behind with Project Life. The kind of behind that makes you just want to give up. But … I don’t want to give up, I want a finished album for 2013. So, I have been madly trying to catch up. I sat down this last weekend and did all my layouts for December. I still need to do October and November, and I’m planning on powering through those over the course of the next few weeks. Once I finish all the pages, I’m going to create either a 12×12 Blurb or Shutterfly book.

For all these December these pages I used Just Jaimee’s December 2013 Storyteller kit. As always, I tried to keep it simple. To remind myself what went on each week, I consulted the Momento App on my phone which aggregates all my social media feeds. Seriously, Momento is my favorite PL tool.

For December 1-7 I was traveling for work, so I have a combination of my photos from the road and Mike’s photos from home.

December 8-14th I was back home and we had lots going on: field trips, a visit from Sue, lunch with friends, sewing projects, etc.

December 15-21 was filled with family time, Christmas preparations and Holiday merriment.

For my last group of pages I combined the week of December 22 with the last few days of the year (Dec, 29-31st), since I wanted to keep all of 2013 in one album. Since we were on vacation for the last part of the year, I just made two 12×12 collages of vacation pictures and called it good (I’m going to make a photo book from this trip, so I saw no reason to go into great detail with my PL spreads).

  1. These turned out great. I got WAY behind, as well, and spent the holidays playing catch up. I actually wrote about that process and what I plan to do in 2014 today. I think I’ve come up with criteria that will work better with my life and will also take away some of the weekly pressure.

    Good luck with your October and November spreads!!

    I have 28 unfinished weeks for 2013 (not consecutive). I do plan to finish them; they’re all captured. But I don’t plan to tackle that right away. I decided not to continue in 2014; after 2 years I was ready for something different. Mostly though I’m just happy that with each passing week I’m no longer getting further behind. Huge weight off my shoulders. Looking forward to more traditional layouts and creative play this year.
