Another thing I'm doing in 2013 is Project Life.
Project Life is a method of scrapbooking where you post a picture from each day and add some journaling, and at the end of the year, you have a pretty good representation of your life ... your whole life, not just the holidays, birthdays, and travel - but everyday stuff that makes up your life. No scissors or adhesive required (unless you want to).
OK ... reality check. I've tried this before and couldn't do the picture a day thing. It's not that I forgot to take pictures, but that my life just really doesn't have all that happening in it. Monday through Friday it's work, work, and work, and pretty much if you've seen one picture of work, you've seen enough. I don't have kids, so there's no cutsie pictures going on there, and while my cats are cute and funny, that would get old quickly.
So the plan for this year is to not be so structured with a picture each and every day, so I guess I'm doing a "modified" Project Life if you will. I still plan on doing a 2 page spread for each week, and use the Project Life pages and papers, (the kit I have is the Turquoise one, but it comes in other colors too) but to make up the two page spread, I may use several pictures from the same day, or just journaling about what's happened that week, maybe some inspirational words, or something I've found online. Pretty much, everything is fair game.
Some friends in an online group I belong to are doing the Project life thing too, and I've joined a Facebook group for "support and accountability", as well as following some sites with ideas and prompts for what to take pictures of. I've also recently added a new board for Pinterest with some Project Life printables, as well as ideas and inspiration.
If you've been following along, you might have noticed that I've also started blogging again. I like the blog, I've missed the blog. Twitter is OK, but 140 characters doesn't give you lots of room to talk. Facebook is better, but again, you get a readers digest version of life, inbetween the updates from the games I play (many post automatically - I have no control over it). So I'm back to blogging, which in the long run, will also help me with the Project Life thing because I'll remember just exactly what is going on in my life on any given day.
Pretty cool how all these things tie in together.
