Welcome to the first 2012 Project Life Blog Hop! Inspired by Becky Higgins.
Project Life is a back-to-basics approach to memory-keeping. No one’s life is perfect but everyone has a story and every family has a collection of memories. Putting pictures + stories together in Project Life makes us more aware of our blessings and encourages us to cultivate a good life.
In the forefront of my mind is to keep PL simple and sustainable for 366 days from the workspace to products to workflow.
What I saw as my biggest obstacle was the journaling. The perfect solution? Click the first image below for more info.
The Day One calendar pops up daily with a reminder to journal. It can also be used as an iPhone app for on the go journaling.
I’m still deciding what I want to include on my title page. Look for the completed title page next month.
One small table in our office sitting right next to my computer for easy access.
See the bottom right photo of Chad and I? That’s the beginning of one of my photography projects for 2012, 52 Weeks of Chad and Jill.
Week 2 Middle Front and Back
A trimmed pocket page in the middle of week 2 to highlight a special event, my daughter getting her ears pierced.
The “thoughts” stamped card is one of the folded journaling cards from the PL core kit with journaling for that specific photo on the inside.
Another photography project I’m including in Project Life is 4 People 12 Times.
So, relax, put your feet up and see a glimpse of Project Life.
