My 2010: Project Life.

Hi everyone!


I have something I would love to share with you all :)


It is not long now until we hear the clock strike midnight in a couple of weeks to ring in another new year. A new decade. I am not one for new years resolutions, they go out of the window by lunchtime on new years day!


My Grandma has been pestering my Mum and I to find out what I would like as a Christmas gift this year and to be honest there isn't anything I particularly want/need. My Grandma doesn't like getting 'typical' gifts like CD's, DVD's or perfume. The gift has to be something significant and poignant from herself. It is one of the many things I adore about her! Therefore, I knew I had to get my thinking cap on :)


I have heard many people take part in a creative project called 'Project: 365.' It is where you take a picture everyday for a year and scrapbook it into an album. Then at the end of that year you look back at everything you have seen, achieved, disliked and loved. I first heard about it last year and the thought was appealing but me creative? I think not. Then I read on Becky Higgins blog that she had designed a new 'Project: 365' kit. Everything is designed in the kit from folders, to stamps and journalling cards. The colours are really pretty as well. All I have to do is take the photo and print. I love it so much and the price is fantastic as well :)





This is without a doubt one of the best gifts I will ever receive :) 2010 is going to be a 'big' year for me. I turn 21, earn my nursing degree, get my dream job and I have many other activities I am excited for. I cannot wait to take pictures, print and journal about this upcoming year. I already know it will be a year I will never forget - and 2009 hasn't even ended yet!


Appreciate the Past. Make the most of the Present. Live for the Future.


Is there anything your doing with your 2010 next year?!

That is so great! I'm doing project 365 this year as well! Except I can't really lug scrapbooking stuff with me as I move all over the world, so a digital scrapbook, printed, will have to suffice! Can't wait to see how you do!

How exciting that your doing the 365 project! I know so many bloggers that are doing it - I might next year (2011), we'll see!

Kristen said...

This sounds very you. I can imagine you having lots of fun capturing your 2010 memories!

I do what I want! said...

OMG I need this. Your grandma sounds awesome for not wanting to get you something ordinary. I think this would be the perfect thing to look back on after the year is over and you are right this year is going to be BIG for you. You should come to Vegas for your big 21. I know it's across the ocean but it would be a blast!

Thanks for always being there for me on my blog with encouraging words. I really do appreciate it :-)

I love this idea! As I'm getting a brand new camera for Christmas it seems like a really good thing to try and do - I think I might have to do an online version though as I'm going to be moving about far too much!! Good luck for 2010, hope everything goes well for you and that you manage to successfully document the year :)

xxxxxxx

I did (am doing) her Project 365 this year. I sat there on my birthday last year refreshing the screen to buy the kit, lol. I bought 2, and since I kind of failed a little this year I'm going to do it again next year with the same kit.

What an amazing gift! I too am going to participate in project 365 this year (my goal is to take 2 pictures per day, but we'll see how that goes). Your goals for 2010 are amazing! I need to write a post about my goals too...thanks for the idea :)

I think we both need to put meet each other on our list, what do you think??

Mere said...

That is such an exciting project! 2010 is a big year for me as well. I graduate high school, go on to college and begin down the path to my dream job as a nurse as well :) I can't wait to see what you do with this project!

Love, Mere

Stacie said...

what a great idea! maybe i'll try to do that on my blog next year and then a real scrapbook in 2011.

Lauren said...

I love this idea! I had never heard of it before but I think I might be investing in the kit and doing it myself!
Thanks for sharing!

Justine said...
