Project Life. I never thought I would do it. I wasn't interested. I was resistant. Make a double page layout each week of the year? Crazy! Too time consuming. Besides, what in the heck are you going to do with all of those books (assuming you are still doing other scrapbooking.) I was totally NOT on board with it. But then, I saw the layouts. Something hit me. I'm all about telling the stories of our every day. I decided that I would give it a try. I knew that with all of my classes, stitching, book club and everything else I do, a layout a week was too lofty of a goal for me. Plus I didn't want to feel like I was just "manufacturing" pages to keep up. They had to be meaningful.
Instead, I decided to give it a try on a monthly basis. Totally doable. Just a single double-page spread documenting our life and the little things that go along with it. If one of the Project Life albums can hold 52 double page layouts, then one album can hold 4 YEARS!!! Totally up my alley. I'm doing it.
Here we go. January.
This month by month thing is going to work for me! If you would like to give it a try, check it out here:
If you are already doing it---I'd love hear about it. I would love to post some of your layouts here. Just email me your photos.
I have another year long project up my sleeve. I'll share that another time.
Tomorrow: Operation Organization---that which I have been dreading!
