. . . will I do it agin ?
My scrapbooking had hit a lull over the last two/three years, I have been scrapping since 2004 but recently I just haven’t done anything much, its not that I didn’t want to and I was certainly inspired but that is as far as it went.
I knew about PL but I wasn’t at all interested in buying into what I considered “system” scrapbooking, scrapbooking for people who didn’t really scrapbook – that’s how I saw it, my perception.
WRONG – when I saw some of the “scrapping celebrities” 2012 albums and there preparations for doing this project this year I got curious (yes OK, I’m a sheep) it still took me another four weeks into 2012 to get it all together but I jumped onto the bandwagon.
Seriously, this approach to getting those memories documented has re-ignighted the urge to scrapbook for me, before I was all about”cherry picking” what memories/events to scrap and if I didn’t have “perfect photos of said memory or event then I wouldn’t scrap it (fickle – I know)

I can’t believe that I have documented almost an entire year of our lives, even before I scrapbooked only the holidays and major events got space in a photo album. Now I have documented stuff that I know in 20 years time I will want to remember, alot of it everyday stuff and for a large portion of the year they are imperfect photos taken with some sort of i-device !!
SO the answer to the initial question is a resounding YES, I am more excited about documenting 2013 than I was about starting on 2012 (now that I have ironed out all the bumps in my process, more on that tomorrow)
