LIFE:CAPTURED began in August 2013 when we held our first full-day workshop at RAW Space in Sydney, Australia. Our mission is to help people document their stories and create tangible keepsakes to be treasured for generations to come. We offer intensive design, photography, and memory keeping workshops, as well as interactive online classes. We are advocates of honest photography, minimalist design, and memory keeping that's simple, beautiful, and tangible. We are the pioneers of the story book, and we offer flexible templates that enable everybody to tell their story. We believe that life is worth remembering and that it is never too early or too late to start documenting yours. LIFE:CAPTURED was founded by Rhonda Mason (of the Pink Ronnie blog) and Trish Chong (of Tealily Photography).

Let's talk: My personal projects list for the rest of the year

Time management: The fundamentals - A blog post by Rhonda Mason for LIFE:CAPTURED Inc (The modern school of memory keeping)

Today I thought I'd share with you what's on my personal projects list for the rest of the year.

Hypothetically speaking, I have about eight hours of time set aside each week for my personal projects. I say 'hypothetical' because these eight hours are my most flexible hours of the week, and so often, I end up using that time to catch up on work that I've fallen behind in. However, in a concerted effort to try and tackle these projects before Christmas, I'm sharing them here today to keep myself accountable. Feel free to ask me in December how I went, or to even send me emails out of the blue to check up on my progress!

Update Cameron's album

As you can see, I like to group my memory keeping projects into categories, and I like to break down bigger projects into smaller ones (like breaking up my family life album catchup in October into three separate projects). The former means I don't have to keep jumping between different headspaces and allows me to take advantage of any momentum gained once I've started the first project of the month.  In other words, I tend to become more efficient with each subsequent project as the month progresses. Breaking down a mammoth project into smaller ones helps me to stay on focused on something that's achievable, rather than freaking out and quitting before I even begin.  

This may look like a slightly ambitious list, but as you can see, most of the story book projects are based on templates that I've already created. Plus, I've already done the journaling for all the story books, so it's entirely a case of simply choosing the photos in Lightroom, and then dropping the text and my images into the right template. This means that half the creative work is already done, which is why I think this is a feasible list, as long as I don't end up procrastinating and wasting time...

What's on your personal projects list right now?
