I’ve been thinking a lot about The Savor Project and even though this project hasn’t fully worked for me for either of the two years, I am still not ready to give up on it. I love the idea of preserving our stories and savoring our moments. I love how it encourages me to take more photos. It even encourages me to do more with my family.
So I decided to give it one more try for 2014.
This time I have a slightly different plan. I am going to do the project fully digitally and then order an 8×10 Blurb book at the end of the year. If this works, I can do one each year.
I dug up my old week in the life templates I’d used a few years ago and adjusted them a little bit to come up with my spreads:
and the other way around:
and then one alternative look:
I am envisioning a spread per week but they can also be turned to single pages per week. The dates might disappear if I decide I don’t like the pressure but for now they are not bothering me. I can also put a wider range like January 2 to 15, so I have some idea of the duration but no pressure to do it with some specific regularity.
I don’t know if I will stick to these or change them completely. I don’t know if this whole idea will work or not, but I am going to give it a try.
I also plan to do my daily gratitudes (which will become weekly gratitudes) and celebrations as part of this project this year, as maybe extra enticement.
If you’d like a copy of the psd templates, you can download them here.
Here’s to another year of savoring.
