    Where are the AAM posts on the blog?

    I am trying to get a plan together for my AAM pages, and when I went to the blog and clicked on the AAM tag, I only see four entries. I know there was an entry for every challenge over the past several years (from 2010 forward).

    I have the challenges that were posted in list form in the forum, but I was hoping to get the more detailed challenge information and prompts from the blog.

    Am I overlooking something?

    Thanks!

    Hmmm me too. I know Steph had a list also in the forum here somewhere where you could see them all at a glance, let me see if I can find it.

    Carol, I have that list. I was hoping to find the more detailed information that used to be on the blog---with the prompts and links to sample pages. The list will help but it is still a little vague for me, the blog posts would be very helpful.

    Sarah - I've asked about the blog - I'm sure we'll hear soon. Katie and Randy are quick to answer questions! In the meantime, I'm going to go back to the blog and see if I can find more of them for you!

    Nooo! Bummer . . . I guess I can go back through the AAM gallery and match up some pages with the prompts in the forum list. It might be helpful.

    Steph, thanks so much! Most ladies could probably use the list on the forum (which is very helpful) but I really need more guided direction. I am excited to finally give this project a go!

    Susan, is it cheating if I post pages I did two years ago? I know I had started this project at the very beginning, and I thought I had deleted the pages. When running my system-wide backups yesterday, I found THREE layouts I had already finished!!! So technically, I am caught up until the middle of February . . .

  17. No such thing as cheating, Sarah! Don't get too cocky! Don't want to fall off of the horse!!!

    I think I am going to treat them as if they aren't done. I will tack them on at the end. It would be really nice if I could get all 43 done this year. It's not impossible, I just have to decide to do it. Of course, I have only done last year's pages through about April. I have never been this far behind, ever.

  19. It is what it is, Sarah. Break it into smaller manageable bits....one AMM page for one or two of last year's pages or something like that. You can do this!
    How wonderful to have found some earlier pages.....has anything changed since you made them? Any "then vs now" possibilities?

    Susan, a ton of stuff has changed! It was only three years ago but I hardly remember my life back then. I was teaching different classes, living in a different place; we had different jobs, different friends. Living in the deep South and we lived there longer than any other place in our lives (except where I grew up); the familiarity of the photos on the pages made my heart ache. Jake was a tiny boy, and my mom was still alive.

    I think my next page will be the "Mom" page; I actually have one side of the layout already done, the page I posted here that I made for my mom's funeral service. I can do a collage of photos on the right side with text.
