project life books
I completed Project 365 for the first time in 2009. I was on maternity leave with my second daughter and thought it would be the perfect way to document our year as a family of four. It was an amazing year, despite the fact that my husband lost his job on week four!! It was tough, but at the same time we got to spend a lot of time together, creating memories!
I created weekly digital layouts highlighting just one photo each day, even though I took way more than just one photo a day!!
Here is my completed book from 2009.
I attempted to do Project 365 again in 2010, but by April, I wasn't feeling it and decided not to continue. I don't regret it, as I still captured lots of wonderful memories! I was very diligent about updating my blog so that at the end of the year I could print my blog posts as a book. I ended up with two books from the year, which I had printed through Blurb.com.
Here are my photo books from 2010:
In 2011, I successfully completed another year of Project 365. This time around, I allowed myself the freedom of missing a day here and there. It wasn't so much about capturing just one photo a day, it was about telling the story of our every day life. Here's a post about my approach for my 2011 book.
Here's a preview of my 2011 book:
2012 was my first year doing Project Life using Becky Higgins' templates and core kits! It also marked the year that she asked me to be on the Project Life Creative Team! So blessed for the opportunity! Loved it!.
