Project Life

11 Jul

This past weekend I ventured down to Tierra Verde, Florida, home of the wonderful Orobello family, for some fun and a little relaxation. I left with a those two things, but also with something to document the my time over the course of the year. With so many exciting things going on right now and a ton of life change moving into the real world, Mrs. Orobello thought this would be the perfect time to start.

As the owner of Whim So Doodle, Mrs. O knows all about the greatest of scrapbooking goodies, including a product kit called Project Life by Becky Higgins. I used to be an avid scrapbooker back in the day (of high school) but quickly got too busy (and too much of a perfectionist) for such undertakings.

When I first saw my friend, Ryan’s, book, I fell in love. Then, when I noticed that the “Top 5 Reasons People Love Project Life” included “Save time. Save stress.” I knew that Project Life and I were destined for each other. When better way to enjoy crafting than with a time-saver, stress-reducer and smile-provider?

The idea is to journal a bit and take a photo for each day of the year and document it in a book that looks a little something like this:

Mine is currently quite a bit more empty, but will soon be full of daily morsels of my life. I don’t think that I have enough going on in my life to take a photo each day, but I am willing to use a couple photos from each event to fill up this daily journal/photo album. I am seriously looking forward to it. The set-up of my book is similar to the one above, but with these colors:

Doesn’t that just warm your crafting heart? I will keep you updated on the progress of documenting my daily life. It may not be super exciting and thrilling, but it is the small stuff that counts, right? Here goes nothing…
