With a holiday planned (yay! - so very needed) I've been thinking how I want to document the trip. Time is somewhat scarce at the moment (ok, when isn't it? but 3 months til wedding as of tomorrow means I'm approaching a peak of scarcity) so I'm planning to make a photobook.
I've seen positive reviews about Artifact Uprising online, their interface seems fairly straightforward and the provided layouts are simple and beautifully designed, so I'll give them a try. In the one day with nothing planned between getting home from holiday and heading back to work, I'll dedicate a chunk of time to getting started. I need to set up a good process, make quick decision and not second guess myself for this plan to work.
The other project I've been contemplating is December Daily. I'll still be on honeymoon through the first week in December (it's a hard life!) and completing a December Daily album isn't practical for me this year. But, after 4 years of documenting being a big part of my Christmas season, I'm not ready to abandon the idea all together. I plan to use an assortment of pocket-style page protectors that I'll add to my regular album, aiming to complete a pocket (at least) for each day. A day's entry might be as simple as 3x4 inch photo, dated, and perhaps a label sticker with a word or two. I might print big photos, make small layouts, decorate pockets with confetti, transparencys and favourite products. If I have the time and inclination to play and experiment that's wonderful, but the aim is for a project that is achieveable.
And completed within 6 months. ;)
