There's been a lot of "buzz" in the scrapbooking world about Project 365. From what I can tell by doing a little research (and I mean just searching a little on google) Taylor McKnight started Prject 365 when he decided just to take a photograph everyday to document his everyday life. What ended up happening was that he learned a lot about photography, but more importantly it helped him to see the things that are truly important in his life.
Now, in 2009, Creating Keepsakes Magazine (and Becky Higgins) has started their own version of Project 365. They are challenging people to take a picture a day of some aspect of their life, and then get it into an album. It sounds like a very daunting task, but in the end, a very rewarding one.
I shyed away from doing this because I'm trying to keep things simple this year, but then after getting an email from
Barb and seeing how she's approaching this challenge it got me thinking. It will be a lot of work to remember to take the photos, but what better way to celebrate the simple, everyday things of my life! So, after going back and forth a lot this week, and chatting with a couple of girls about it again last night, I have made my decision.
I'm going to tackle this project. I'm both excited, and nervous (that I won't complete it) but I'm giving myself permission to cheat on the occasions that I forget to snap a picture (and need to borrow a photo already in my files).
If you haven't given this any thought yet, check out the link above and also read about it on Becky's Blog. I'm sure it will be a very rewarding project to take on and to be able to look back at the end of the year and reflect upon.
