It’s a Beautiful Life

I think I’ve mentioned a couple of times that I’m doing Project Life again this year.


I just love this format and have actually moved away from doing any other type of scrapbooking. It’s just so easy and so quick and simple. 
I love being able to snap one picture a day and capture what’s going on without having to worry if I have enough to fill a 2 page spread, or enough journaling to warrant a scrapbook page. I love saving receipts, schoolwork, and other tidbits from life to include in there. (documenting the price of gas, anyone?)

And with my nifty new toy, ahem, phone, I have this really cool application I’m using: Project365. I can snap my picture with the camera on the phone, add it to the app and have a little snippet of journaling to go with the photo.  I’ve even added to that by pushing the photos up to the web so I can share with others. (I bought the Pro version, by the way)

And, when I have time, I can go back, print the photos, put them in the Project Life album add the journaling and I’m done!

So cool.

I want to share my photos with you guys, too.  But I didn’t want to overwhelm my blog here with the photo-a-day posts. So, I set up a photo-only blog over here.


So, anyway, if you want to subscribe to that photo-a-day blog you can.  Or, you can just check occasionally.  I think it would be fun to see other people’s ideas for their photo-a-day projects.  Some days I have tons of ideas, others, I’m struggling with coming up with an idea for ONE photo!!

You can find the link to the blog up in the top right corner of this blog.

Of course, there are some great websites with some ideas: Capture Your 365 is one. I like that she sends daily emails to remind you, although I’ve not used any of her ideas yet.

Becky Higgins’ Facebook page has some great photo-a-day ideas, too. I sat down last night and went through all of hers and jotted them down in a notebook (my lovely little moleskine) that I can carry around to give me inspiration when I need it.

What about you?

Are you doing a photo-a-day project?

What do you do with your pictures? 

Share! Share! I’d love to hear some of your ideas…
