Let's talk about documenting your summer. I am all about documenting everyday life. This summer is going to full of amazing things and I want to make sure I have a record of it all.
There are many ways that you can document your summer. I have made a little list for you ;)
Project Life:This has taking over the scrapbooking world this year. I am even taking part in Project Life. This back-to-basics approach to scrapbooking appeals to the person who's never made a scrapbook in their life as well as those with experience because it allows you to feel the freedom that comes from letting go of the "guilt" that so many associate with the memory keeping process.
Mini Summer Journals: The lovely blogger Elise makes these wonderful mini books to track your summer. I am so in love with her mini books that I buy them all the time. You can read how she used her summer mini last year here.
Blogging: This is a GREAT way to track your summer. Most of us do this already so this one should be easy.
I normally do a little bit of blogging, paper journal and a mini book to document my everyday life. I know this summer I am going to do a little of all the above.
Once you have decided what medium you are going to use to document your summer-- you then need to be able to tell your story. There are a few ways that you can use to tell your story. You can use words, take photos and or do a little bit of both. I love words and photos.
Telling your Story: Sometimes we find it hard to tell our story. I have sat down at the computer before just staring at the blank screen. Ali Edwards offers a Self-paced class called "Storyology" and she talks about ways to tell your story. It is really wonderful.
Capturing the moment: In order for you to capture the moment you need to have your camera with you at all times. Since doing the Spring photo challenge I have not left home without my camera in a month. You never want to miss a GREAT shot!
Documenting on the go: As long as you have your journal and your camera-- you are all set. Now it is up to you to pull them out and take photos and notes ;)
What are some of your plans for this summer? How are you going to document your summer?
