The original idea was to do Project Life for my 33rd year. I posted about my attempt in November of last year, and unfortunately fell off the wagon shortly after that. I realized that with the holidays, trips, other mini book projects and layouts (and not having the Core Kit), it was going to be difficult to keep up. 2012 seemed like a good place to really start, especially with all the scrapbookers (and non-scrapbookers) in on the fun this year. (Woohoo!) There are tons of people spreading the good word. So onto the bandwagon I go once again.
I don't foresee doing 2 page spreads for every single week, and I honestly don't see myself staying with it consistently for the entire year. It is OK. And I sure as heck am going to try. There will be weeks when I probably don't want to share the nitty gritty details, and other weeks where there is just so much going on that I'll do Project Life, a mini album and layouts. Who knows. I see the entire project as an excellent way to document the little things and to use up supplies that I have saved. It will be a little of this and a little of that. And who knows, maybe it will be one of those habits I just can't kick. We shall see! For now, I'm pleased with the minimal progress. Here is the title page:
I used a mix of the Project Life Core Kit - Clementine Edition and stuff from my stash. The photos are from 2011, but that doesn't matter one bit. And here is Week 1:
My desk is back to being pretty messy, but it's apparently the only way I can get stuff done.
Photo Pocket Pages - Design B (on the right), Cavallini numbers tape, camera & feather stamp is part of the Love Struck set, orange chevron washi tape, and my favorite pen. So there you have it, week 1 is done. I've only highlighted some supplies, because I will drive myself bonkers if I have to keep track of every little thing I use. This is the only way I can take the lighthearted approach to keeping up. But, if you have specific questions, please let me know and I will do my best to answer. If you all have any tips for staying on track, please share!
