Week in the Life Update + Exciting News!

Last night I started editing my Week in the Life photos.  I wanted to start over the weekend, but it just didn’t happen.  Anyway, I first went through all my photos from each day and marked the ones I really liked or the ones I thought I could fix up with some editing.

 

Next, I imported the marked photos to iPhoto.  I do not have Photoshop, Elements, GIMP, or any other editing software.  So I’m just using what my computer came with!  I made an album for each day of the week and copied the photos there.

 

I started with Monday last night and edited the 30+ photos from that day.  I think they’re looking pretty good (any tips on editing would be helpful!!):

Most of my editing involved helping the white balance out (making the whites truly white) and lightening things up.

 

I also think I’ve decided on an album format for the final project.  Instead of divided page protectors, I’m going to print my photos at 3×4 (except for a handful of photos that I want to enlarge) and make a mini-book out of them.  I’m thinking of doing something like this, but not quite as embellished in the end.  I really like the squares/rectangles in that layout and think it would translate well to a mini book format.  This will also (hopefully) solve my problem of vertical vs. horizontal.

 

Now the EXCITING NEWS!!

Last Friday, I made my first Etsy sale!!  Someone bought my Project Life mini kit I had made.  I was so excited!  I haven’t restocked that particular item (though I have plans to in the next week or so), but there are some newer items available that I just listed this weekend.  Check it out!  Any tips or comments on the shop would be much appreciated as well!

 

Thanks for reading and stopping by.  Happy Tuesday to you!
