Photograph the everyday

I've embarked on a new project this year called Project Life - this is a great idea by Becky Higgins that is right up my alley.  It's going to help me with a few things this year - improving my photography, printing and cataloguing more pictures, taking photos of the every day things that I should be thankful for but sometimes seem "ordinary"...until they are photographed.  Becky always maintains in her blog that you should use Project Life however you like...in whatever way you find most useful and satisfying.  Some people take part in "picture of the day" but I've found that a little overwhelming right now - I mean, with work and kids activities plus trying to stay fit and healthy, get back into reading and keeping my house clean, sometimes the day is over before I remember that I should have taken a photo!  I've decided that I'm going to do a layout a week.....I'm sure that sometimes a week may take up more than one layout but this way seems to work for me right now.  Here are a few photos of what I've included in my album so far....my daughter's skates because sometimes I think she's in them more than she's in shoes....my son's craft desk at home and it's constant state of disaray and creativeness.....a new recipe that I tried this weekend (pico de gallo) including the recipe above it so I'll never forget.  It's so important to me to capture what we are doing at this point in time.....when I think back, I realize how much I've already forgotten!  Thank you Becky......this is going to be a great year! 

If you are interested in ordering a Project Life album and the cost is scaring you a bit, let me tell you from one penny pincher to the next.....this is well worth every penny!

I wanted one of these soooo badly but didn't get one- the shipping scared me! There are now similar products on the market to coordinate too. And I found companies with refill pages and another company that makes kits for about $26 that do the same thing too. So if you are looking to add to it just let me know. I am happy to help enable ;P
