There is so much buzz about Project Life.
Are you in?
I did the first project life back in 2009, when you had to but the kit
from Creating Keepsakes on January 1st,
I tried on line for several hours and finally got my
order to go through...I believe their whole site ended up
crashing from all people trying to order that morning.
The crazy thing is I ended up with 6 kits in my basket
and over $200 charged to my credit card!
I sold the extra kits to online friends who weren't
lucky enough to get one so all was well.
I faithfully took my daily photo till the middle of July
and then I stopped, and my album is unfinished.
But I love what IS in the album!
So I have battled if I should so project life this year.
I love the Clementine kit, and now you buy it at Amazon,
so it costs a little more, but much easier to order!
what to do? what to do????
I have decided I am going to do Project Life.
My thinking is this...
I know this year (and next year) will be big for our family.
I want to capture it.
But I have decided I do not have to do it everyday,
I am going to span the project over the next 2 years,
some weeks might have a photo every day,
some weeks might be several photos from one event
like a birthday, or graduations (Jessica will be a senior this fall),
ans some weeks might be skipped.
I am also going to buy the big envelope pockets (they are out
of stock right now) to throw in tickets, receipts, cards, etc.
I have ordered my kit and even though I am a little behind
since the year already started I have been keeping a little note
book with notes for each day. This is the way I did it in 2009
and it was very easy to just look back at the note book and know
what photo was for what day and I also wrote a little note about it.
The other thing I did was to make a 2009 album in my iphoto program
and as I uploaded my photos I dated the photo of the day and added to the album.
Then they were all together and ready to print.
So tell me, are you doing Project Life and what are your
tips for keeping up with it?
