Welcome back to the Organizing Your Photos series—Easter Edition!
If you haven’t seen the earlier posts in this series, you may want to check them out here. The most important thing to know is that I’m encouraging you to enjoy your photos, not spend hours and hours making the perfect album.
Now I’m going to show you an album I took hours and hours to make. 🙂
Welcome back to the Organizing Your Photos series, Christmas edition!
My goal for these posts is to help you feel like a successful family historian and truly enjoy your photos, without a lot of work. (For more about that, read the first half of the first post here.)
Speaking of work, I know this is the Christmas season. Chance are that you’re not going to start a photo project, no matter how small it is. You have a lot to do right now, and I get that. But now is the time to think about your project, and maybe even take a couple of photos to get ready!
My goal is to encourage you to enjoy some of your photos offline, so you can cherish those memories and bring your family closer together. If you missed the first post about simple Interest Albums, please check it out!
Remember, you can enjoy your photos without a big, hard, long project. Keep your project simple, short, and fun. The Interest Album was the perfect way to start. Now, let’s keep it rolling…
Last May, I posted about the Live it Up summer initiative. The Uptons tried an ambitious plan to Use it Up, Eat it Up, Play it Up, Read it Up, Watch it Up, and Trip it Up. You can read more about it here, but basically we determined to enjoy the summer by enjoying the things we already had!
If you’re wondering, it went really well. We didn’t do everything I’d planned, but we did an awful lot of it and I’ve never been so contented with a summer of fun. We played with more, tried more things, and used up more of our stuff than we ever have before. Getting organized about our family’s summer was wonderful!
This year, though, I wanted to try a simpler endeavor.
