Deadline: Yearbook

It's deadline time and this time for an entirely different kind of a book.

A Yearbook.

Yes, I'm working on my daughter's school yearbook and this big of a project is STRESSFUL. hahaha!

I've always loved my yearbooks during my school years, and never had the chance to work on one during my teen years. School paper, yes. So the yearbook is a new experience for me. I love the creative side of collage pages and sneaking around school with my camera, but the paperwork and the fine details of names and making sure we're not missing anyone or making big ERRORS is the tough part.

And the funny thing is it's a small yearbook, not like the massive high school ones.  I cannot even imagine taking on that big of a project.

Everyone keeps telling me, "All you can do is your best," when I have my freak out moments. And its true. :) :)

I suppose many schools will be hitting yearbook deadlines soon in March or April.  All I can say is GOOD LUCK!!!

We're in the same boat! I'm doing my school's yearbook, as well. This is my third year doing it all by myself, and I'm such a perfectionist that it becomes fairly stressfull.

Good luck!

Sounds stressful now, but what a joy it will be for you and your daughter to look back on this yearbook, Kelly!

Kudos for taking on the yearbook project. You're documenting memories to cherish - very worthwhile!

Oh, Jaycee, all by yourself! Ugh. I have another helper but she doesn't have much free time. Good luck with yours!

So true, Tina! I hope she likes it!

Thanks, Kristin! I'm hoping we make the kids happy!

My mom did our school yearbook when I was younger, and I remember how much time it took her! Once its over though many people enjoy it for many years. :)
