December 2015 in Pockets + All of 2015

I have done it! I have finished my year in pockets! I am very pleased to have made it an entire year, and even more to have discovered it to be a versatile and helpful format. Helpful, since if you're lacking inspiration, there's a sturdy structure to fall back on. Versatile, because with the constraints comes the wonderful opportunity to work around them. Looking back through the year I am somewhat shocked how my pages changed. I'm not sure why this is shocking, as that's generally the natural progression of things. But still, I am surprised by the difference in the pages I made at the beginning of the year and the end.

See the full project here.

This is the first time since I switched from paper to digital that I've actually stayed up to date and scrapped most of my photos. I didn't have too much trouble staying on top of this project because I really enjoyed the process and also, as the finished pages started to add up and I could see what a wonderful record it was of the year, I was even more motivated. My next and final step is to get this actually printed out as a photobook. Hopefully I can get to this sooner rather than later, so I can see if there's anything I want to switch up for this year.

Just read your comment from a month ago. It encourages me to try again. I often go days without taking a photo. It's what I really want to be doing, but I often just can't make it happen in light of other things. Your blog is interesting and always helpful.

@Susan: I didn't actually technically take a photo a day. I just took a lot of photos, some days more than others.

It looks great! I quickly scrolled through your flicker album of the pages. I LOVED the cover! And the mix of pocket pages and more traditional scrapped pages worked out well to highlight special pics or moments. great inspiration!
