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

So over the weekend I was reorganizing some files on my external hard drives and came across a bunch of kits I created when I had my other blog/shop September Blue. I thought these 3x4 Bad Day Filler Cards would be a fun freebie for a Monday! I hope you... 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!

Thanks Carla! The National Parks are just beautiful! We visited several out in California when we lived there when the kids were little. Now we want to go back and see them all over again! Kelly

Hi Jill! Yes, I use a combination of 3x8 page protectors and just punching holes in the photos myself for those pics not in page protectors. I don't punch the holes into the photos until I adhere whatever photo will be going on the other side to it. Does that make sense? I got a little confused when you said "So there is nothing but whit on the other side." Kelly

Hey Donna! You are too sweet! Thank you for your comment! Glad you found the shop! I love clean pages as well! Sometimes when there are too many embellishments it's hard to find the photos!!! Thank you for all your support! Kelly

Earlier in the spring Chris and I watched The National Parks: America's Best Idea by Ken Burns on PBS. This was around the time he planned a weekend road trip to Everglades National Park. As we were watching this documentary, I realized that this will be the second National Park... Continue reading

So I did a thing. I opened a shop. Although it is small, I hope it will be mighty one day. I've had several inquiries lately about the 6x12 Monthly Journal Blocks I use in my 2020 Family Yearbook. Friends are wondering if I created them and if so, will... Continue reading

Oh. My. Goodness. I had NO IDEA they offered a variety of mobile presets! The one I have is the Light & Airy Pack here is the link:http://lightandairyphotog.com/the-l-and-a-lifestyle-mobile-presets. And I have another one from them, but I honestly have no idea what it is called. I think the other packs that are mentioned in the link you provided are ones Light and Airy Photography on collaborated with Find Your Editing Style. It was driving me crazy because I couldn't find these presets on the L & A blog/store. I went back through some old emails and found one on the collaboration. They are all so gorgeous! But check the link I just posted. That pack may have what you need!

It's about time these pages are done, right? I think I mentioned in a social media post recently that I got my documenting mojo back. It disappeared back in April and I just didn't feel like doing anything but record tutorials for my tribe! I worked on these March pages... Continue reading
