Project LIfe 2013: Weeks 39, 40 & 41, September 23rd-October 13th

I have been a little MIA in blog land lately. That is largely because of Project Life. I have been editing, printing, and compiling all of my missing Project LIfe weeks for 2013. I am happy to say that they are all done. Yup, I met my goal...to have all of this finished by Tuesday, October 15th. I have EVERY SINGLE WEEK of Project LIfe for 2013 completed...all the way through week 41 (October 12th.) I am so excited and so glad that I did all of this BEFORE the holiday craziness is upon us.

This Project Life Catch-up Plan all started on September 9th with THIS post when I realized I was missing 13 weeks of Project Life (and that didn't include current weeks.) I made a plan and just stuck to it, approaching this one week at a time. I will be completely honest, I had moments of frustration with the volume of photos to compile, edit, and print, but I did it. I edited photos in increments of 1 or 2 weeks at at time and then did my pages (my favorite part.) Then I patted myself on the back and repeated the process again and again and again and again until it was all done. It took 5 weeks, but words cannot express how proud I am that I accomplished this goal. 

I found that by listing out all of my weeks of Project Life, and not just the missing ones, I was able to realize just how much WAS accomplished and man, did it feel good to hi-light each and every week I finished during this time frame. Let's review that visual checklist again shall we...I sure want to.

Weeks 40 &  41

All of the aqua hi-lighted weeks are weeks that I completed during this time five week/ 35 day time frame. This amounted to 21 weeks/ beginning or ending pages. Just picture me right now doing a happy dance and smiling from ear to ear.

Today I am sharing weeks 39, 40, and 41 with you. I still have a lot of weeks to share, and am trying to figure out the synchronization of video camera, tripod, I-video, and hoping to have a Project LIfe video completed by the end of the month. I think it will be easier to show all of my pages this way and a good excuse for me to work on my video editing to boot! I have three albums so hopefully I can keep the video under 20 minutes...here's hoping anyways.
