There is so much going on in the land of Project Life. I've been getting a lot of questions and I've tried to answer as much as possible. I was passionate about this project since the day I started and being on the creative team has given me the ability to infect others with the same passion (hopefully). I thought I'd post a little intro and a recap of what I'm doing with Project Life in case you're new to this blog!
What is Project Life?
Here's a 1-minute, easy-as-pie explanation:
Why do I think you should do it?
Because your story is your legacy and it's important. Someday, your kids and your family is going to want to know this stuff about you and themselves. I promise. Kids have a way of wondering how you did it when they start families of their own. This is the way to show them.
How am I doing it?
I am doing my pages digitally. It saves me the counter space (which is limited with 3 little ones) and the hassle of cleaning up. I just put everything together on my computer and then I'll print the book out at the end of the year. Also, the majority of project life users do the project weekly (2 pages to recap your week, every week). I, however, am taking a different approach this year. I'm just putting our major events into the book. There's too much stuff going on in my life to have the pressure of keeping up and we just don't do all that much stuff yet because my girls are so little. I'll probably start the weekly layout format next year. You can read more about what I'm doing and the pages I've completed by CLICKING HERE.
If you're already familiar with Project Life, you probably know that all the core kits and page protectors (both new and old releases) have been sold out. Well, they're starting to come into Amazon in batches. They're going quickly, though, so if there's something you're wanting make sure you try to snap it up as soon as you see it's in stock. I try to keep everyone updated about what I hear through my twitter feed and the MFD Facebook page. Follow and Like for up to date info!

Here is my most recent project with pictures from our very first real family vacation:

I ended up loving this spread. I started to put that large Yosemite photo into a small picture slot and then I just couldn't leave it there. I had to go full-page on it. It's just too amazing to fit into a small space! I love this place. We had an amazing family trip here and M and I already want to go back (when the girls are a little bit bigger and can go hiking with us). More vacation photos to come!
