After talking to Jennifer Wilson about project planning and finding insight on scrapbooking habits, I thought tallying up my personal memory keeping stats for 2014 was in order. I counted up the pages I created each month (sorting files on my hard drive by date made this easy). I then counted up the types of pages I made. This part was trickier, so I decided to create a visual trend instead of using exact numbers. I used a free online chart maker to display the information.
Total Pages Created in 2014: 157
I had no idea I was so productive until I added up all the pages. In January, I participated in The Month of Challenges at The Lilypad. Even if I’d only produced a few pages, I’d stile happy with my 2014 memory output. May was iNSD and the Page a Day in May challenge over at Get It Scrapped. March and July, I created some extra pages for Masterful Scrapbook Design classes. You can tell when I started the podcast because the number of pages (and my free time) diminished.
I really thought I’d scrapped more cat pages than I actually did! I scrapped mostly about people (no surprise) and places (total surprise).
I do love single photo pages, but I thought I’d created more photoless pages than I actually did. The other surprise here is that 2 and 3+ pages are roughly the same!
I’ve definitely learned new things about my scrapbooking habits from my 2014 memory keeping stats and confirmed things I already thought about what I prefer. Have you ever taken a look at your memory keeping stats? Do you make charts and graphs about your scrappy habits? Feel free to share your own stats in the comments, I’d love to know what you discover.
