I have to admit that I'm breathing a little easier today. In between travels the past month, I was quite the hermit at home and glued to my desk to finish up projects for my upcoming Signature Series book. Everything has been shipped now to the photographer and it was a great feeling to get it sent in. The book will be out in mid-November and you can pre-order it right here.
I am very excited to start seeing it all come together. It really was a labor of love. This such a huge honor for me and I really worried about making sure I delivered. I did not want to disappoint anyone. I put a lot of thought into the different chapters, debated about which products to use, and revised my list of layouts over and over.
The thing I stressed the most about was which photos to use... which stories did I want to tell? I want the book to represent me. Thirty years old, unmarried, no kids. Cherishes her friends more than words and loves her family. Likes trends, girlie embellishments, and bright colors. Seeks adventure and wants all the good times she can squeeze out of life. How do I share that in my book?
I looked through so many photos and they all represent their own special time in my life. I have this desire to document everything. I want to give all those memories - the good and the bad that were just as important - their rightful place in my personal history books. But how can we do that? How do begin to even get it all recorded?
I would love to hear your thoughts on what stories you chose to document and any ways you've gone about scrapbooking, journaling, or Project Life-ing.
