I have to admire you, Sheila in completing the Project 365 and the fact that you are taking it on again this year (are you nuts?) I tried, really I did, but I found out a year long project like this was just not for me! So I guess you could call mine Project 180, since I made it from January through June. It seemed like a great idea when I started, but then I guess life got in the way, I got behind and I was playing catch up a couple of months at a time. I would forget to journal, and there was no way I could remember what I really did two months ago. Maybe I will add in another 6 months some year and use mine as a comparison of what was going on in my life at different times...
I learned something important from this project though, and that is I like smaller projects that I can finish in a short period of time. So, I do like the idea of a "Week in the Life" from Ali Edwards, and will think about that to try. I am not sure why I did not like the year long Project 365. Maybe the first half of last year was overwhelming (it was), or perhaps because I am a teacher, I don't really see a "finished product" in my students...often it is years later that I hear from them. I find a lot of satisfaction in completing a "finished product" with my scrap booking like when I get a mini album done.
One of the habits I did take away with me from attempting this project is to try to take a photo a day. I will admit I do not get one every day, but I try to document more of the daily things going on in my life, not just taking the camera out for the special occasions. So, even though I did not finish (at least for this year), I did learn from the process, and I guess that is important too.
So, kudos to you Sheila! I look forward to sharing our albums when we get together next, but for now, you are on your own journey through 2010!
