As a new year begins, I've got to get really choose-y about new photo projects to work on through the year. My main photo project this year is to continue Project Life and continue the daily picture-of-the-day practice of collecting photos and stories for my album(s).
But first, a little back-story.
I began Project Life in 2008 when it was Project 365. I breezed through that year easily, and each of the subsequent years got tougher. Here I am six years later. My 2013 book was current until June. Then all hell broke loose. I became a Grandma! So, naturally I took on the big project of his baby book. Wouldn't it be great to document the first-year-of-his-life? Oh Grandma, what a great idea!
ACH!! I'M BEHIND! I've spent the last few days of 2013, desperately trying to catch up. I've got lots of notes and a calendar, so everything is preserved, it's just a matter of getting it in the book.
Additionally, I've already purchased my 2014 album and I got the midnight kit as a Christmas gift. They sit waiting. Staring at me. Beckoning.
I'm also researching apps. I wish I were in the app business. I'd be rich.
I did see this one recently. It's called Flipagram and it's FREE! It collects photos from your phone, your Facebook feed, and your Instagram feed. Puts it all nicely into a short, sweet video. You can also put your own music to it.
My first try is a look back @ 2013.
My year in pictures. Makes me cry. I am blessed.
Oh, am I gonna use this for 2014...
For now...I'm back to printing pictures.
