A New Year & Project 365

Welcome 2009! I can't believe another year has come and gone. All four kids stayed awake until midnight to welcome the new year. A first for any of them. Yesterday they celebrated the new year with hats and noisemakers. Very, very loud noisemakers, lol.

I started a 365 project yesterday and finally decided what I want to do with the photos. I am going to use an Atc holder to organize and display my photos. Actually I will probably use two in order to hold all the photos from this year. I am going to keep them displayed downstairs in my living room. Not only will it be fun for our family & friends to get a glimpse into our daily lives, but it will also serve as a reminder to myself to take a photo each day.

I used 7 Gypsies ATC pockets to stamp the name of each month. They will serve to hold extra jornaling or memorabilia. I also added a few transparencies and tab dividers. I used tab dividers with the letters J, L, M, & T- the initials of my children's first names. I will use these to feature each of them on their birthdays. I will add my photos, cards with journaling, and maybe a few embellishments. Simple and easy.

I also plan on starting a blog to go along with my 365 project. Realistically, I don't think I will be able to post a new photo everyday. I will probably upload my photos from each week on the weekends, most likely Saturdays.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
