Y’all, I’m finally getting around to printing my 2012 Project Life book. I am sooooo excited. Before I share some of the pages I finished recently for it, I want to answer some of the questions that I’ve been getting a lot recently:
1. WHERE ARE YOU PRINTING YOUR BOOK?
I’m printing at the pro lab I use for my photography clients. Although it’s expensive (yea, it’s really expensive), the pages will be on heavy board and high quality so the book should last through kids and grandkids alike! The bad part of this is that I can only print 30 spreads in one book because of the page thickness (think child’s board book) so I have to print in 2 editions per year. I think it’s worth it for the thick board book pages and high quality images though. I just haven’t liked the color quality at many other book places (though blurb does a great job for a high-quality paper option).
2. HOW MANY PAGES WAS YOUR ALBUM?
A lot, though not as many as it would have been if I had been doing the 1-page-a-week format like I’m doing this week. 2012 came out to 40 2-page spreads, so 80 pages all together). I’m printing the book in 2 editions to fit all of the spreads. I’m also printing a separate book to house my 2012 Week in the Life spreads and my 31 Things spreads (which were conveniently 30 total spreads between both projects, how about that?).
Alright, here are a few of the pages that I completed for the 2012 book and hadn’t posted here:
Let’s start with the Color Run that my friend Becky and I did.

Next we had Addy’s 2nd birthday shoot:
Kennedy Elise | 2 Years Old
Then we moved to Seattle and I wanted to include this important story in the book so I copied my blog post about how we were sent to this lovely city to live:
Then it was time for the final 12 of 12 installment in the book:
December 12 of 12
And finally, Christmas day in our house:

How is your 2013 project coming along? I love the weekly format so much!!!
