Happy New Year, friends! I pray everyone has welcomed 2021 with open arms and slammed the door on 2020! To be honest, I really wasn't ready for the holidays to end. It was cooler than normal in December for us here in Florida. I couldn't get enough of cozy nights... Continue reading

Not all of my photos and stories in my December Daily album will revolve around Christmas. My third story is one that does not, per say. But it does bring me lots of joy, so I guess that does embody the spirit of the season! I’ve adopted a row of... Continue reading

Usually I have several December Daily posts published by now, but 2020 has been anything but “usual,” right? Even though I have already been sharing this year’s pages on my social media accounts already, I wanted to go into a little more detail here about my approach this year. If... Continue reading

During my studio refresh, I found an Advent Calendar that I bought YEARS ago from Kaisercraft and never put it together. I mean I think I had this thing for over 10 years. Well, this year I decided I was going to put it together. My niece Jessica and her... Continue reading

Hey friends! The Pixels to Pages Journal Block Winter Collection is now live in the shop!!! Memory keepers are LOVING these kits because they offer extra-large, decorative journal cards, giving documenters a little more space to tell their stories than the standard 4x6 or 3x4 journal card allows. To celebrate... Continue reading

It’s the middle of September. Kind of hard to believe there are less than 100 days until Christmas! Yes, you read that right! Less than 100 days until Christmas. When it comes to the holidays, are you a planner or more of a last minute kind of elf? Personally, I... Continue reading

The end of October will mark 6 years since we moved into our home here in the Tampa area. We live in a boating/fishing community, in a "Key West-style" home on a cul-de-sac street. There are neatly manicured lawns out front and a canal out back where dolphins and manatees... Continue reading

If you recall, last month I mentioned that I was going to be playing catch up on my 2017 Project Life Album and shared pages from September 2017. My goal is to have both 2017 and 2020 by the end of the year and today I am sharing my October... Continue reading

Seven months down, five to go. Can 2021 get here any faster??? Right before I started to type out this post, I read on the interwebs that the Big 10 has cancelled the 2020 Football season. We just want to cry. 2020 gets a 0-star rating from us. Seriously 2021,... Continue reading

One of the memory keeping projects I want to accomplish in 2020 is to complete my 2017 Family Yearbook. Just like I am doing in 2020, I was documenting 2017 in a monthly format. Looking back at what I had already completed that year, I was further along than I... Continue reading

What’s this? My June pages are done on the 2nd of July??? Even though I have two double-page spreads for June, it turns out I didn’t have a whole lot of photos for the month. Compared to the three or four spread I’ve been doing each month this year, it’s... Continue reading

2020 is moving right along, although probably in not a way that we planned. Am I right? I mention in my journaling on the Monthly Journal Block for this month that as the days go by, they feel like Groundhog's Day. Not much changes from one day to the next... Continue reading

This year I participated in Ali Edwards' 7-day documentary project, Week in the Life. While I try to capture details of everyday life in my Project Life family yearbooks, this Week in the Life project is more of a deeper dive. More photos, deeper, meaningful stories. Although Ali and many... Continue reading

HI Jennifer! Thanks for your comment! Criticism not taken at all! So I first started using PowerPhotos and breaking up my library into separate ones by years back in 2011. Back then we were living overseas and the only computer I had was my Apple MacBook Pro (along with my 2nd generation iPad and an iPhone 3). Also at this time, Apple was still using iPhotos and PhotoStream. I probably had four or five years of photos in my iPhotos library at the time and it was really slowing my MacBook Pro down. So slow. Most of the memory on that laptop was being taken up by pictures, so I knew it was time to do something about that, and that is when I found PowerPhotos. Back then, having the separate libraries was a way to alleviate any memory or storage issues. Fast forward to today, storage/memory isn't really an issue for me anymore, but having the separate libraries is now just a personal preference. I totally understand that the current Photos is able to separate photos into years. I have many ways I separate photos within my library to find what I need. But honestly, I just don't see the need to keep a bunch of years in one Photos library. As far as scrapbooking goes, years 2016, 2018, and 2019 are done. 2017 is still in progress and I am working on 2017 and 2020 concurrently. For the photos I need in 2017, I will just open that library on my computer and export photos to a folder on my iCloud Drive to use them in the Project Life App, Affinity Photo, or other apps. Does this help answer your question? Let me know!
