Happy Sunday! As promised, I'm back to share my progress on my December Daily book. This week was busy, but I still feel like I took more photos than I would have because of this project! I enjoyed thinking ahead about how I would use the photos I was collecting each day.
First of all, a few thoughts on printing at home. I printed all of my photos from home this week using my Canon PRO-100. I've been getting a lot of e-mails asking which printer is my favorite for scrapbooking. This is it. For bulk printing (like if I wanted to print 50+ 4x6 photos) I would order them online and have them shipped to my house, but for odd sizes like what I'm doing here home printing is the best and easiest solution. I love that I only had to use two pieces of 13x19 inch paper to print all my photos from the week. :)
I resized most of my photos to 3x4 inches, and printed a couple larger photos as well. After printing, I cut them all out and used a corner rounder tool to trim each corner.
This week I only had one photo that wasn't from my iPhone and it came from this blog post. This is a just-for-fun page. I like how big photos change the pace of the album and I hope to have more pages like this next week.
I shared day one last week, so this week starts with day two. Both of these photos were taken with my iPhone. We had our first big snow this week. This photo of our home was captured on the night the snow started to fall. The next morning we woke up with about seven inches! It's kinda rare for us to get a big snow in Missouri in December, so it was extra special.
Days 5 and 6. If you follow me on Instagram you may notice that some of the photos from this week are out of order. Disclaimer- I don't care about stuff like that. :D
Progress! Week one was fun. It was pretty busy, though, so I don't feel like I got enough good photos and I definitely could do better in the storytelling department as well. My goal for this coming week is to take a couple photos every day with my SLR to mix in with my iPhone photos at the end of the week. Also- I need to take more photos of people (even though our dogs are really cute!) Anyone else have some progress to share for #DecemberDaily this week? xo. Elsie
