project life | entering the final stretch

The final stretch! Of my first year as a Project Lifer, that is! This month I will be completing what I set out to be a project about my last year in my 30s. I can't tell you how excited I am to get the layouts uploaded to Blurb and that album ordered.

But with being so close, I found myself feeling more pressure for the pages to be perfect. It's a stupid thing, really. Because here I have done 100 pages for this album and now I worry about the last ten? Also, whatever is perfect anyway? But yes, I have been in agony over my colour choice for the month (I finally settled with blue/aqua to round off where I started a year ago), placement, photos, journaling. That is why it took a while to get these pages posted. Sitting here writing this I am realizing that having the pages done is so much more important than them being "perfect". I will have to be careful to put that kind of pressure on this project. It's not good for me.

So here are the pages for the last week of June, and the two first of July.

With being so close to completion, it has me thinking about what I should do with the remainder of the year. I know I want to keep documenting but being the way I am, I know I want to start a new project on Jan 1, 2015 and then do a full calendar year. But that leaves five months of 2014. Do I make a separate album for those months? And do I continue with this format? Do I make it easier on myself and just go with the "normal" Project Life format? So many thoughts, so many questions. I have a few more weeks to go before I need to decide. What would you advise?
