Here's a look. First are my most recent Project Life pages and my 12-of-12 project for January:
|Pages 14 & 15: The twins' first day of Preschool.|

PS. If you're into the "First Day of School" print, I got it HERE along with one for every year of school! I hope I can keep this one up through the school years.

Here are my 12-of-12 photos and layout. I love that I'm going to try to do this all year. Instead of just explaining the pictures, I wrote out a timeline of my day and then inserted "see pic #..." within the timeline. I think I'll do this every month as well. I also did a little photobooth strip of what I looked like that day. I'm going to try to keep this up as well. We'll see.

I'm noticing that most of these are coming out to 2-page spreads. It think it's going to end up being a big book (which, I'm actually okay with). But seeing as how I'm pretty much caught up on the things that I want to document, I'm on track with the 1-a-day that many other Project Life books will be. I like not feeling the pressure to take photos and remember the details of every day. Maybe I'll do that once the girls get into full-time school and I won't feel like it's a burden. Even Becky Higgins says:
If you're hesitant because you think you won't have time, I'd encourage you to check out the ways you can use project life outside of the 365 idea.
My little Project Life group has grown and I'm so excited to get emails from all of them with their latest pages attached. What a cool thing to share with some of my best friends this year. A great way to keep us connected even though I moved...again!
Next, I wanted to show the Fargo, North Dakota "Special Place" print I made for Abby:
That's it for this round of craftiness. Today, I'm organizing a command center in the kitchen while the girls are in school and I'm going to bust out the sewing machine to put some work into a quilt I started right before my mom died. Haven't pulled it out since. I'm going to try to make it to Zumba at the gym tonight if M will watch the girls. Hopefully I also get the chance to write 3 important letters (which for some reason I'm having a lot of anxiety about). Pray for me.
