i have mentioned before that I am officially joining the Project Life party for 2012. it took me a while to make the decision, and when I finally did, the preferred style of page protectors were sold out.
this may seem like a little thing. . .but I learned it was a big hindrance to my "getting started". my opened kit and empty binder was like a blank Blue Book (remember those? do they still use them?)
i hemmed and hawed and poured over Becky's, Monica's, Lisa's, Cathy's, Elise's and Ali's blogs. . .I discovered and followed new scrapbooking friends taking off on this adventure through twitter and pinterest.
but i had to just sit down. . .and start. my plan is to run my weeks from Saturday to Friday, so I have Saturday and Sunday to complete the prior week. I plan to post my updates on Thursdays.
someone had the idea to keep journaling notes on their iPhone - so I set up a paper and have recorded something for each day. . .Cathy is using an App called Day One - I'll be checking that out this weekend.
i finished my Title Page. . .I do not love the 4x6 in the upper left hand corner. . .it will do . . .the rest I am pretty happy with.
i have week one planned out. . .but not completely pulled together. again, i struggle with words. . .what to write. ironic, since i am a blogger right? but somehow committing that pen to paper is so "permanent". . .such a big chance to get it "wrong". i KNOW there is no wrong - it's MY story and however I choose to tell it is perfect. . .but it's still daunting.
two other things i learned so far. . .my date stamp only goes to 2007. . .clearly I have not used this tool in a while. and secondly, i should not have selected True Digital Prints when I ordered photos. . .I am planning to print most of my photos at home from now on.
so onward and upwards. . .trying to remember to take pictures along the way of my day. . .save bits of things to use, and jot down what we did, where we went, what we said, etc.
are you playing along with Project Life?
catch you soon -
