After Matty was born, the days of trying to keep up with scrapbooking came to a drastic halt. After many hours of complaining about how bad of a mother I was to not be keeping all of Matty’s little baby details like I did for Davy, Kelly decided that she and I were going to partake in Project Life. Kelly first introduced me to this project at the end of 2010 and together through motivation and accountability to each other we successfully completed all of 2011. www.beckyhiggins.com Project life is just that, a project that captures your day-to-day life. Becky Higgins created several kits, which was perfect for us. It came with a binder, monthly tabs, journal cards, and a date stamp. All we had to do was take the picture, print it, and fill out the daily card. Looking back, I just love this project. So many things happen day-to-day that we just forget about or take for granted, such as: the breakfast table, playing on the playground, sleeping on the little bed, losing teeth, etc. As we rolled into 2012, my photo printer broke and after a while I fell to far behind to try and catch up. I am filled with sadness that I didn’t get to capture all of the little moments of last year, so my resolution is to not let that happen again this year.
Examples from Project Life 2011
Earlier in the year I found a printing company www.blog2print.com who prints blogs chronologically and at an affordable price. So that means that this year I will post daily pictures here and then combined with all of our other wonderful adventures I’ll be able to print a book out and the Project will be complete. I am so excited to see what will unfold this year. I appreciate those who follow us and for those who receive email posts….consider this a warning… 🙂 Happy New Years!!!
