|Elias swinging this summer|
October has begun.
We have three months left of Project Life.
I know many of you are keeping up with your photos through Project Life Tuesday.
But I know many more of you are behind.
And some of you may be like me – you do your photos every week, but you are behind on developing and the journaling cards.
I want to encourage you to get caught up.
You CAN do it.
In July, I opened my album and realized I hadn’t written on my journaling cards since late February.
Thankfully, because of Project Life Tuesday, I had been recording my journaling each week on this blog.
So I set a goal of writing two weeks of journaling cards a day. Each night, after Elias went to bed, I would get out my album and write on my cards.
And then, life got busy and I didn’t finish catching up. But I picked things back up this past weekend and have been working diligently. I am happy to say that I am caught up through July and my goal is to get I totally caught up by the end of the weekend.
You will not regret staying with this project. Last year, I only completed the first four months of journaling cards and while I LOVE the album, I wish my words were throughout it.
Words are the most important part of scrapbooking because they tell the story.
100 years from now, your album will be a bunch of daily pictures. Your ancestors will wonder why there is a picture of a peach pie in your album. They won’t know that the peaches were the best that summer and that you had to make a pie.
So get caught up. Have a great weekend!
