Project Life advertised on Becky Higgins’ blog and thought it was way cool and that my best friend could really use this. So, I bought it for her for Christmas. When I opened the box to look at it before wrapping (yes, I peeked!) I really got excited about it and wanted one for myself. So, I asked David for it for Christmas and I got it!!!
Like most people using PL I started on January 1st. I’m a chronological scrapper anyway so this makes sense to me. I’d been feeling the need to change the way I scrapbooked and when I saw this kit I knew this would work great for me.
So, now that I’ve completed almost 4 weeks now I thought that I could show you mine. Becky has a video tutorial on her blog about how to put the thing together, so I did that. I even put all the journaling cards in their places so I just had to plug pics in and pull out the respective card and write a few sentences.
I also, needed to find a way to get my pictures conveniently. I’ve been using the app Project 365 on my phone for a couple of months now and it reminds me every day to take a picture. So then I send my pics to Shutterfly and they print out at Target. I go to Target every week so this works perfectly for me. I just upload the pics on a Friday (the end of my week) and get them on Monday.
Right now I’m trying to focus on taking a picture a day and not on the quality of the picture. I do use my camera for some pictures but most are from my phone. So far this is working well and once I put the pics in it only takes 15min or so to write some journaling for that week.
I LOVE this! This system is forcing me to focus on our day to day lives not just the big events. And instead of facts, I focus on feelings/emotions. Even David has started taking a picture a day (POD) on his phone as well.
