January ... done!

I have managed to stick with Fat Mum Slim's photo a day challenge through the month of January!  I'm so happy with the result, and hopefully this will spur me on to keep going for the rest of the year.  I think the photos looked great in a grid like this, and I will get this page printed in my Project Life book at the end of the year.

I'm also using an app on my iPhone called Collect: Photo A Day to store the photos daily ... here's what a screen cap that collage looks like:

Love it!!

Project Life Week 4!

This is about the only thing I'm getting done this week!  I'm not sure about the yellow background on these pages ... I've used plain white up to now.  I may change this!

Project Life: Week 3

Here's week 3!  Having fun with this, although this week was a bit tough as not a lot happened ... a few filler cards have been put to use!  I'm also feeling a worrying hankering for an actual physical project life as opposed to a digital one, but I'm trying to fight the hankering ...

Project Life Week 2

Here's week 2!  Still enjoying this :) I went a bit more clean and simple this week - much more manageable!

Currently ...

I read about this great idea for Project Life ... you can read about it here and join in too!

As I've already done my week one spread (although the more I look at it the busier it looks ... definitely going for a cleaner look this week!) I thought I'd just blog my 'currently', so here it is! (**edited ... I couldn't stand it that this wasn't included in the first week, so I redid my pages, updated in post below! **)

Project Life - Week 1

Wow.  So one week of 2013 has passed already.  Well, not quite, but I'll be doing my double pager from Monday to Sunday, so for me the first week finished today.  I had a lot of fun putting this together, but it took A LOT longer than I expected!  I need to rethink how I'm doing this as I was hoping it would be a fairly quick and easy solution to documenting a year ... I fear I will lag behind very quickly if it takes too long ...

Anyway, here is week 1 in all its' glory!

It's back to work/school for us tomorrow :( ...

So, it's a new year ...

so it must be time for another blog post!

We'll not dwell in the past, let's just look forward!

Aims for the year 2013: blog more, move more, read more, cook more, create more, DO more, eat less, grumble less ...

Number one on the list of creating more: I've decided to attempt Project Life. I'll be doing it digi style, using the Seafoam digi kit in conjunction with the myriad of freebie digi bits out there! At the end of the year, WHEN I have a huge pile of weekly pages in a neat little folder on my mac, I will send them off to be printed into a photobook, and we will have a fabulous record of the year 2013! (yep, that's the plan ...) Here is my title page - I used some bits from the Seafoam kit and some freebie bits from Cathy Zielske plus some brushes found on the internet ...

I like it!

 Other forthcoming plans: a sampling of recipes (the aim is one a week ...) from the gazillion recipe books that are causing my shelves to bow; a sampling of art journal pages and videos from Art Journal Caravan and A Year in the Life of an Art Journal; a monthly snapshot of my photos for Fat Mum Slim's fabulous daily photo challenge (so far so good!) ...

 No promises, we'll just see how things go ...

Right now, I'm off to document all the little things that happen in everyday life!
