Project 365 - week one

For 2009 I am working on this fun album/scrapbook to document our daily lives. The hope is to take one photo for each day of the year. I know that there will be days where I don't get a photo taken but I am sure I will easily have 7 photos for each week. And then I will be using this kit to document the week with the photos and journaling. (journaling being a big emphasis for me, as I am great with taking the photos but need to get better about writing down the funny quotes, cute stories, specific details.......)
My hope is to add the photos weekly into my flickr account to help keep track of them with a little journaling blurb. So I have put a new "logo" on my side-bar to click on to see my 365 slide show. So here is a glimpse of week one of the project, no amazing photgraphy but it shows how we spent our time.

If you are interested in doing the project, don't let the fact that you have missed the first few days deter you!!! No matter how many photos you end up with it is a great thing to look back on at the end of the year. There are many ways to document it too! Just a normal photo album, blog, flickr account or at the end of the year you could make a shutterfly book with all your photos! What a treasure it will be for you and your family for many years to come. Whose in??

You know I am in...I am going to figure out some way to display them...I go to the Scrapbook USA expo twice a year, so I am sure I will be able to pick up "month" rub on's on something to help out. The best part for me so far was starting my 356 journal to keep track of what I was documenting :)

You keep upping the ante, Lisa! Keeping up with a blog is tough enough - I don't think I can keep up with this project. But I'll dfinitely look forward to checking it out regularly. Joey
