What the heck was I thinking? Yeah, I was thinking this will be a piece of cake!! NOT!!
Well, back in November I felt as if I was going to have an anxiety attack doing this yearbook all on my own. When I say "all on my own" I mean....I am photographer, layout designer, writer, editor...I was doing the whole damn thing by myself!!! Well, Ashley is now photographer, layout designer, etc...with me. So, it's the two of us now. Yeah, still stressful!! I finally taught her how to do the layouts and she was actually excited....it's kinda like digital scrapbooking....but not as fun 'cause you have this deadline lurking over you!
O.M.G!!! The deadline is coming upon us fast and we aren't even half way done!! We have about 38 pages done out of 88!!! Holy Crap!! We have to have it complete by February 9th!
Tuesday we locked ourselves up in the classroom with our students and recruited several 6th, 7th and 8th graders to come and help us. We were working on the school photos and we were afraid we were going to put the wrong name to the photo. We told them that they are now on the yearbook staff and we took their photos helping us. We plan on doing a page and thanking them for all their help!
Here's Ashley with two 8th graders who happen to be her son & nephew!You can tell by our facial expressions we are a little stressed. Unfortunately, I have to re-do the 6th grade layout! Yeah, I was pissed! The photos were to little. I am going to fix it tonight.
So tonight I upload 450 photos to my computer....sort through them....upload them 0nly 20 at a time (that's all that is aloud to the yearbook website)....put all 213 6th grade photos on 6 pages of layouts....type in all 213 students first & last names!!
Yes, I have opened my bottle of wine and I have already enjoyed 2 glasses!!! Heck, ya'll know that when I drink my creativity comes out!!! Here's hoping I don't screw it up!!
