Love this! I don't keep track of my layouts, but I do keep track of the status of my projects (the year, completion of pictures, journaling, embellishments, caught up, etc.). My list-making helps to keep me focused and since I don't always complete a project all at once, I can refer to my list and see what needs to be done. Glad you are back to regular posting, and please keep it up. Always an enjoyable read!


I've been keeping stats on my layouts since 2009! My analysis isn't as sophisticated as yours though - I write down the number of layouts made each month and compare those. January & June or July tend to be more productive because there have often been retreats to attend in those months. The most layouts ever made in a month was 29 (back in March 2011) and there are months when I make no layouts at all (at least one in most years). I made 52 layouts in 2017, 50 in 2016, but 174 in 2015! My average number of photos per layout (across both single and double) steadily fell from 4.5 in 2009 to 2.3 in 2016 (but rose to 3.0 in 2017. I love playing around with these figures but mine are in a notebook. If I put them into a spreadsheet I could do so much more with them (lightbulb moment)! Thanks for the inspiration!
