here) to make my supplies easier to reach. Until today, however, I did NOT PL!!! *Gasp* I do use pocketed pages to document photo heavy events such as birthdays and Christmas (and I even used them to document my oldest son's first haircut last year because I live up to my name: Mamarazzi) but I've been wanting to start the real way. I was going to put together my first two weeks together, but realized when I sat down that I should probably start with a cover page and so I did just that.
TIP: Mercytiara (YouTube channel) suggested something she had heard from another person for the loose alphas: keep the backing of the alpha pack and cross off letters as they are used. I sorted mine into three piles, caps, lowercase, and punctuation and put each category into their own bag to make it a little easier to sort later on as well. Both of these tactics will hopefully save me a bit of sanity later on. Less time to find letters and no time spent looking for letters that I'm out of.
I hope you like it and I hope to have plenty more project life shares in the future. I have photos for weeks 1 and 2 already printed out. I am using a mix of 3x4 cell phone pics that I combined in Pic Frame and printed off of my Selphy and photos that I printed from my big DSLR that I typically have printed up every couple of months. I'm not sure about you, but I find that my 'real life' photos end up taken using my cell phone which is why I wanted to get a Selphy to begin with. In our house, we take photos EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. and sometimes those photos can get routine. We can easily have day after day of posed smile shots as we are rushing to put the boys to bed for the night, but when we whip out our cell phones, we are taking fun, candid shots that speak more of our daily lives than those rushed daily photos. I am greatly looking forward to mixing the two in this album.
Thanks for stopping by!
