Our (Project) Life: February 2012

I have been in memory-keeping mode this last month and have made great progress on our family albums. I completed my February 2012 pages (seen below) on March 4 and I am nearly done with my 2011 album (just October, our November Sea World Trip, and Christmas remain). I am eager to wrap up my 2011 album so that I can get to work on the girls’ memory books.

On top of our family albums, I am also in charge of the “Me Books” at Chelsea’s preschool. That means I have been busy photographing the kids (and then editing, printing and organizing the pictures) and, with the help of some of the moms, making the ~30 kids’ books. When I volunteered to do the “Me Books” I didn’t anticipate how much it would involve, but I think it is worth it.

And now, here is a peek into our February of this year:

I still have a few dates to fill in and two valentines that the girls made that I want to include in a page protector, but other than that this month is done.

My goal with documenting our family is simply to document SOMETHING each month. Some months will include more or less photos depending on how much is going on. Most people are using the Project Life system, developed by Becky Higgins, to document a photo-a-day or a week’s worth of happenings per spread. I am using the Project Life system a little differently as I am taking the monthly approach for each spread and then adding in extra pages or inserts when necessary.
