I'm going to do something CRAZY in 2012

I decided today that I'm going to do something a little nutty in 2012.  I'm documenting this decision here so that ALL of you can hold me accountable to it.

I m going to try and combine two really fun ideas....Project365 and LOAD.  I am planning to make up for all the albums I never made myself by choosing to make an album a month using these two concepts.

Project365 challenges you to take a photo a day.  They explain it so much better than I ever will, so here's a bit from their webpage.

Why do it?

Taking a photo a day is a big undertaking with big payoffs. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider doing it:
  • Imagine being able to look back at any day of your year and recall what you did, who you met, what you learned… (Often we find it hard to remember what we did just yesterday or even last night, let alone a whole year ago!)
  • Your year-long photo album will be an amazing way to document your travels and accomplishments, your haircuts and relationships. Time moves surprisingly fast.
  • Taking a photo a day will make you a better photographer. Using your camera every day will help you learn its limits. You will get better at composing your shots, you’ll start to care about lighting, and you’ll become more creative with your photography when you’re forced to come up with something new every single day.
LOAD stands for a Layout a Day.  So I will literally be taking the one picture from each day and creating a scrapbook layout of it.

I doubt I'll be able to put all these layouts in one album, so maybe I'll try to make an album for each month.  OMG....this is going to be a CRAZY, FUN trip in what I hope to be a very fun year :)

I think my craft room is going to look like this for most of next year!  oh boy!


  1. What a fantastic idea!! I take a picture a day, but I never thought print them all and make a scrap book...what a great concept! You can do it!!

  2. okay. You are making me want to start scrapbooking again. I miss going to retreats so seeing the picture above makes me a little sad.
