Just Craftin' away!

I have lots to share but when it comes to taking pictures of the crafts I've been doing, that's where I get meh about it all because I don't have a good light area in our house for picture taking so then I end up not posting. Not a good excuse, I know. No matter what, I decided to post anyway. :)

I am most excited about Week in the Life that starts next week. This will be my 3rd year following along with Ali Edwards and I just love it. You document all the little and big things that happen in the week once a year. Even what you ate, listened too, everything. Believe it or not, it's the routine, mundane things that are really fun to recall years later. Stuff you would never remember. By the last day, Sunday, I'm pretty much pictured out, but it feels so good to have that whole week documented and an album done. Nothing fancy, unless you want it to be. This is the first year where I have pre-made my album. Although it works for others, I've discovered that I really don't like the regimented "spots" for pictures, like you need 4 4x6 horizontal photos and 2 4x6 verticals each day, etc. That really stresses me out because I never have enough of a certain size or the right direction of the photo. So this year my album is completely open. It's an 8 1/2 by 11 ish album bound by my Zutter Bind-it-all. No pre-designed sections for pictures or words, whether I have 10 pictures for that day or 1, it will all work. And I can add more pages if needed. Here are some pictures of the album, tags and pockets that I created.

If you aren't already, join in and do Week in the Life. So fun!
