Around Here

I'm trying to harness the New Year energy to wrap up some lingering projects in between work & kid commitments. I just finished my sixth photo-a-day book. Over two thousand family photos and stories recorded and printed
Note that the book looks pixelated on the Internet, but prints nicely.

I've realized that while I love this project, it is often too much to sit & read at once. The kids really like the monthly yearbooks that I made for the early years when we didn't have as many photos. So, I also created a mini-book for 2013.  My goal (leftover from last year) is to have 2009-2012 monthly yearbooks done before Christmas so we can open them consecutively during the advent celebrations.

For 2014, I hope to take more family photos. We took about 7 last year which is great except that 6 of them are casual photos (i.e., no shower camping photos) with the phone. 

I hope to use my real camera more often. I am working on the 2012 monthly album now & did a better job taking quality photos that year.

I hope to keep current with my journaling so that my stories are fresher and more complete. The kids are changing so quickly!

I have a list of outstanding photo projects. Here's to starting to cross-off some of these lingering projects (like the empty frames on Charlie's wall!)
