Project Life 2012

You may remember that I was REALLY excited last year about stumbling across and ordering my Project Life kit.  I can't find the post . . . but trust me, I was EXCITED!!!  I did awesome the first 3 months.  I took pictures, printed pictures and wrote out little journal entries for 3 months!  Then . . . I got busy and I got overwhelmed because I got behind and I kept putting it off and putting it off.

As of right now, my 2011 Project Life is a pretty cool album/scrapbook that is about 1/2 done.  I have a lot of pictures filled in (thanks to Snapfish for having their penny prints!) but not a lot of the journal cards done and I still have to fill some pictures in here and there.  I will finish it when I have time but I have a feeling that isn't going to be anytime soon.

I decided to go a different route for 2012.  I'm doing the Digital Project Life over at Shutterfly.  I'm thinking it will be a better fit for me because I can do it on the computer and don't have to drag a bunch of stuff out and then put a bunch of stuff back to get any work done on it.

Personally, I would much rather have a more tactile, unique album that is filled with ticket stubs, programs, receipts and such . . . but being practical, this is the easiest and best fit for me RIGHT NOW and I would rather have my memories preserved and the stories remembered than an unfinished product and a box of misc. memorabilia piling up.  I think I may just opt for taking pictures of those special things and then *gasp* throw them away!!!

I picked the Turquoise Edition . . . because I like brown and green.  I have the first week and a half done - and we aren't even a week and a half into January yet!!!!

Just thought I'd share - and here are some of the pictures that found their way into the first few pages:
