I’m working on a minibook for my photos and words from Week in the Life.
Originally, I thought about digital layouts. Changed my mind. Said I would incorporate it into Project Life. Changed my mind. And now, I’m back to layouts.
I love the idea of a minibook full of these photos. There are a few I love way too much to be stuck with little 3″ snapshots.
I haven’t worked on Project Life in a few weeks. But I still love the format, and once I get inspired again, I’ll go through months of photos in a weekend. It’s awesome working on it that way. I love the straightforward plan to document and record one week in each spread. But it’s not what I’m interested in today.
I really loved blogging every day, and having a whole group of people to connect with who were also doing Week in the Life. But I think I wanted to ease up on myself a little bit and the expectations I was setting.
Right now, it’s this minibook I’m excited about. That wasn’t the case yesterday. But now, I’m so thrilled by it. I went through my folders and made sure I wasn’t missing any favorite photos. I edited and exported and started working with my pages in Photoshop Elements.
I think the important part is to work on exactly what you’re most thrilled by — especially when you’re talking about your hobbies and just how you want to spend your time. Whether it’s blog posts or afghans, minibooks or scrapbook pages, perfect french press coffee or journal pages that no one will ever see. It’s something I’m trying to teach myself: we should go toward what fills us up.
So that’s what I’m working on in my spare time this week. That, and some table number displays for a wedding next week. What are you creating?
