For anybody who has been reading my blog this year knows that I particpate in project life by the amazing Becky Higgins. This idea is so brillant and super easy and leaves us with such a fun way to remember the past year. I have 4 kids and sometimes it's hard to remember every detail of their lives, they are constantly in motion and always changing and growing. To help keep up with all this and keep it all orgainzed the Project Life album is huge blessing for me. I love knowing that all it takes is one photo of anything sometimes laundry, dinner, shoes, toads, tv shows, hair-d0's, books that my kids are reading at the moment, a tree, a bird, the sunset anything I want and that's it I'm done for the day. I write it on my journal card or on my blog or in my notebook so that I'll remember it. Mostly I print pictures online thru Walgreen's every week or two weeks and go pick them up and slide them in their spots and again simple and done. No stress over scrapping these. I do also scrapbook but these are the bigger moments when I have more stories to tell and want more pictures to show. My children love reading thru this album and sometimes they grab the camera or they yell "HEY MOM BRING THE CAMERA YOUR GOING TO WANT A PICTURE OF THIS' and that way it's a family activity. I leave my album and cards out on the scrap table or living room so that's it's available and I don't forget to do it. There is a wonderful community out there of us project lifers and I've learned so much from them this year about our kids, being a mom, being a friend, a scrapper, anything and everything. I wasn't sure the first year I did and let it slide for a month then would catch up for awhile then slide again but I loved every minute of it and this year 2010 I did a great job at keeping it up. This year I'm hoping to add a little more papers, mail, tickets etc. to it instead of always pictures. Ok, so I hope this helps everyone decided how great it would be to get this album, at a great price also.

If you do decide on getting one and need some motivation and cheering and ideas then follow my blog with me this year and we can do it together. I will help you in any way I can. To read more about this and to meet the lady behind this idea then click on the Becky Higgins link to the right of my blog and find out more. Please let me know if you decide and want to join me and if you have any questions. Thank you for your time.

Sincerely a Project life FAN



  1. Hi Dawn, saw your post on Laura's blog and had to pop over and see...well said about Project Life! I skipped last year, and took only a fraction of the photos in 2010 as 2009. The thing I loved most was how often I would think "I want to remember THIS about today!" and carried my camera so much more than usual. Mine came today, and I'm raring to go :)

  2. Hi Kirsten,

    Thank you for comments and for stopping by. I felt the same way with my album. My camera goes everywhere with me. Congratulations on starting again and good luck with it. Mine should be here on Monday! Feel free to come back next year and let me know how it's going for you. Have a Happy New Year!

  3. Hi Dawn,

    I'm so glad you were able to stick it out the whole year. My blog only got as far as Feb, but I've been keeping up with the pictures... just have to get them printed and into the album. I just checked the Mom Creative blog for the first time in months, saw your post & wanted to say hi. Great job finishing! I'm getting motivated to start 2011. Hopefully I'll be able to stay on top of it this year :) Happy New Year!!


  4. Hi Misty,
