Documenting FUN: How I Organize and Back Up my Pictures!

After my goals post last month, I had a few readers ask about my process for my photo routine, so today’s post is all about how I get the thousands of pictures on my iPhone sorted, stored, and backed up in a way that is most useful for me. I’m hoping this will be helpful for readers in various phases of life, but you may want to organize them differently based on your needs and goals. This is a bit of a lengthy post so maybe grab your favorite drink and a snack before you dive in… Continue reading

Year End Wrap Up: Chronicling

If I were to pick one category where I was most successful this year, it would have to be chronicling. This is where daily and weekly habits came together with  big extra pushes throughout the year to make  some serious progress. Continue reading

Conquering the Insanity of my Digital Photos

I had a big victory this spring while my husband was traveling.

Chronicling: Half a Year Down!

OK, so I know that technically the year is more than halfway over, but I was super excited this morning when my shipment from Project Life’s Christmas in July sale arrived at my door after some drama with FedEx… In spite of the rain storm and destroyed box I couldn’t wait to open my order. (I know, I lead a very exciting life… but it’s the little things, right? Especially during a summer in Phoenix.) That arrival meant I could start assembling the first half of our family album for the year. Continue reading

Chronicling: Project Life Travel Core Kit

Macbeth opens in ONE WEEK! So that means it is crunch time over here, but I wanted to share a little update on chronicling. I mentioned that I will be trying a variety of memory keeping strategies this year and one of them was the physical Project Life products. I decided the place I wanted to start was with my HONEYMOON trip to Italy!  Continue reading

Nostalgia, or, my life is awesome

So… I have been working on various ways of chronicling this month. I am in the process of creating a Shutterfly book (because really you can’t beat free and I have a free one about to expire), keeping up with the Project Life app to document the day to day of this year, and I just started a physical project life kit to catch up on scrapbooking photos from our belated honeymoon we took to Italy a few years ago.
