2014 – Savor Project Intro

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.

    I also read Cathy Zielske’s blog. Her post today was very similar. I like the idea of a printed book. I think I would want some kind of date info periodically but I really wouldn’t care if it was inconsistent or generalized. The closer I get to 50, the more I find myself saying things like that. Must be all those years of my mother saying “let it go, Christine. Just let it go,”

    Thank you for sharing your templates! Hopefully I can put them to good use!

  • Thanks so much for the templates. PL2013 was my first year doing the project, and I am glad I did it digitally. However have decided to give it a rest this year and see what other creative projects inspire me. Thanks again.
