From today on, every thursday you'll get tutorials/inspiration posts on this blog.
Today, I wanted to talk about PROJECT LIFE. YES. Everybody is talking about PL and Im no exception. Just wanted to share my thoughts and how I'm going to organize myself for this one-year project, because YEAH : I'M IN! :)
I had already heard about PROJECT LIFE before but never really paid attention, because I considered myself too busy to even read more about this concept.
And then, came three girls that totally convinced me to give it a try : Lisa Truesdell, Nicole Harper and Marcy Penner. Their approaches to PROJECT LIFE totally seduced me and with the amazing things I've seen on their blogs, well yeah, I wanted to be in the COOL circle too :)
So I'm doing it. I'm doing PROJECT LIFE.
I already organized myself : I have a corner in my scraproom that is only dedicated to PROJECT LIFE, I have a notebook that follows me everywhere (thanks Danda for the sweet gift!) and a nice box to store all of my products!
But, if you've never heard about PROJECT LIFE before, you might be wondering what it is exactly.
Well, let Becky Higgins explain her own project to you with this video.
Document your everyday. Your husband. Your kids. Your loved ones. Your neighbourhood. Your city. Your country. The world. WELL : everything that is AROUND you. And of course : YOURSELF.
The everyday. The magic.
Share something happy. Something sad.
That's why I wanna do it.
I want to document those little moments in my life, or those extraordinary days as well.
But let's start with : OR-GA-NI-ZA-TION.
You can't commit to a one-year-long project without a tiny bit of organization.
Here's what I need to get started.
2. PAGE PROTECTORS
3. A BOX (to hide the mess and keep your favorite PROJECT LIFE stash in one place)
Couldn't resist ordering those beautiful digital Paislee Press journaling cards.
Kesiart stickers, of course!!!
Alphas and other sticky embellishments.
My Kesiart will be perfect for WORDS, SENTENCES, DETAILS.
Those are the SC stamps received in kits stored in a Storage Panel.
10. HANDMADE CUTS
11. A NOTEBOOK
To keep track of it all.
12. YOUR PHOTOS
HOW to organize your PHOTOS?
Create a SPECIAL PROJECT LIFE forlder on your computer and add whatever photo you wanna scrapbook in there.
Don't forget to edit them though!
Don't forget that this is a STRESS FREE project : if you can't do anything for 3 weeks, never mind, you'll catch up whenever you can.
No time or possibility to grab your camera with you? Well, you might have a camera on your mobile phone then :)
A very busy week and no interesting things to tell? Well, talk about your everyday, what seems boring to you but can be a good old souvenir in a couple of years :)
Are you ready to dive in PROJECT LIFE? I AM!
