I love documenting life! I like taking pictures and I love photo books. And that`s why, a year ago, I decided to document 2015 by taking one picture every single day. It was kind of like a challenge. Will I really take a picture EVERY SINGLE DAY? (Now I can say: Yes I did!) It can be a picture of the book I`m currently reading, the activity I did that day, the spaghetti I ate or something beautiful I saw. In short, everyday pictures!
Of course just taking pictures is not enough, I need something to hold in my hands: a photo book! I did already some photo books with Blurb and I am very pleased with the quality. So this one is also going to be a Blurb book. I downloaded BookWright, a very easy program for creating books and for this book I chose the 18x18cm size. I haven`t decided yet if I want a hard or a soft cover. But what I have decided on is that all the pictures should be squares and I switch between small, big and full page squares. Like this I have an easy layout that alternates and all the pages match without being boring.
Above you can see the first page of February. All the months start like this. For the rest of the book I take the layouts I want. Here are some examples:
As you can see, on the last one I left a blank. That`s because once I have the book, I want to write down some notes and facts. Not for every single picture, only when I feel the urge to add something.
I can`t wait to finally hold the book in my hands. Only a few more days to go and then 2015 is over! And that means, I can order the book! Of course I will show it to you, once I have it!
A whole year in pictures, is there a better way to hold on to all the small and big memories? I don`t think so! 2016 is around the corner, so what are you waiting for? 365 days, 365 pictures, a lot of memories and all of it in one book! Are you ready for a challenge?
Love, Caroline ♥
