My Journal Closed

I learned a few things while doing this daily journal:
  1. Perfect pictures aren't realistic. Use what you have...that's part of documenting the process.
  2. Make sure you have strong adhesive to bind the book.
  3. With binding make sure to account for the thickness of the pictures/cards...also relates to #2!
  4. Jot notes daily and then complete 1 week at a time.
  5. Tell the "why." It's easy to write who and what but going a little deeper is what makes this special.
  6. Have fun!!
  7. Make it an annual thing!!
Here is Week 1 (with album construction) and Week 2.
