I resolved to DO this and do it right.
My plan for uploading photos into weekly albums has worked even better than I imagined. Now, rather than scrolling through hundreds of photos in my monthly Picasa albums to find the right dates, I am instead uploading photos to Shutterfly as they are edited, in the proper weekly album. When I want to order prints, I simply go into the weekly album select "all" and order. Simple. Workable. Done.
Okay, so what does the album (Turquoise Edition) look like? Here is my opening page along with a few of this years' weekly spreads. Remember, I started this year on Valentine's Day, when I had the best notes.
Week 7: February 14 - 20
Week 8: February 21 - 27
Week 9: February 28 - March 6
Click on any of the photos for a larger view. I've tried to include bits of our daily life in the album, beyond photos and journaling, such as receipts, greeting and business cards, menus, etc. I have several page protectors in the bag that hold the album so, when I have a piece of ephemera I'd like to include, it gets safely filed in a page protector until I'm ready to assemble that week.
Thursday, I'll post a bit more about my process and share photos of weeks 10-12 which also include inserts for busier weeks.
