Many of you may have heard of the popular Project 365. The concept behind it is simple – take a photo every day. At the end of the year you will have 365 photos chronicling your year. I think that this year is the perfect year for me to do this! One reason I have not done this in the past is that I never knew how I would showcase all the photos/stories that went with them. To be honest, it overwhelmed me.
Project 365 – Starting Today
CK is releasing another Becky Higgins Kit of the Month (she also developed the baby kit I showcased during the best in baby scrapbooking) specifically for Project 365 on January 1 (CK has been promoting this kit a lot, so I would be sure to order it on January 1). I have not seen it in person, but I am so excited about it. It has divided page protectors, hundreds of journaling blocks and even comes with an album. Check out Becky’s blog for a few videos she has made showing the kit and discussing the project. I think this kit would be great for people who don’t consider themselves scrapbookers because it is literally sticking photos in page protectors and writing on a small journaling card. So easy and such a cool way to chronicle your year.
I am going to start my 365 today since the kit is set up to do weekly spreads, and I like the idea of doing Sunday – Saturday. It is perfect too because we are leaving Matthew’s parents today, so I will be able to get a nice photo of Elias with his Maw Maw and Paw Paw. You don’t need the kit to begin – just start taking photos and writing notes about your picture/what you did that day. I am planning on having a journal to go along with my Project 365 since I will likely only develop photos and journal on the cards once a week or once every two weeks. I just think that will be more efficient for my lifestyle.
Are you going to do Project 365? Have you done it in the past?
