It seems as though every scrappy site, message board, and blog in the whole wide internet is burning up with Project 365.
In short, it’s a project that involves taking one picture a day for a year. Because, after all, how cool would it be to look back and have a pictorial review of every day?
I decided to get involved as I was uploading my pictures from 2008 to Shutterfly. I upload by month and I noticed that there were some months where I had only picked up my camera ONCE during the entire month! One day out of 30 or 31 was documented. I also noticed that I had a habit of taking pictures only of events – trips to the zoo, botanical garden, birthday parties, etc. I realized that I was missing an entire aspect of my life – those little everyday (sometimes really sweet, sometimes not) moments that you can never get back. I resolved that 2009 would be different. I resolved to pick up a camera (mostly mine, sometimes MOTS – a point and shoot) and take at least ONE picture every day.
I will not be scrapping each page individually. Don’t need a 365 page scrapbook. Much like my blessings album that I am working on I plan on compiling all of my 365 pictures into a page a week. Then I’ll have a nice book chronicling this crazy journey from 1/1 to 12/31 of 2009.
For your scrappy pleasure, I present week 1:
P.S. Jen, you can have the creative brain for the weekend, okay? I just need it back on Monday if that’s alright… 😀
