Project 365...hopefully.

Becky Higgins just made a kit called Project 365. You're to take a picture each day of the year that has to do with your life in some way. I've embarked upon this project even though I don't have the kit and seeing as it's out of stock, may never get it. I'd like to post my pictures here so that I can journal for them and not forget why I took the pic in the first place.

Day 1 January 12,2009: Aaron woke up with a stomach bug. Poor little guy, he couldn't stop vomiting. We just stayed at home and he watched The Lion King for the very first time.

Day 2 I went over to Loma's house to help her with her wedding invites...all 300 of them. The left side will have a picture of her and her soon to be husband...matted in black, they're wearing red.

Day 3: I spent most of the day (when I wasn't taking care of the kids) writing signs. I do them for a little extra income and this last October I marked my fifth year of being a writer. I used to be a pretty prolific writer but I just don't have the time anymore. I write about 400 signs every two weeks when I'm working as opposed to the 800-1000 I used to write.

Day 4: Bran, it's what's for breakfast. These are MY morning staples, when I was a kid I thoroughly enjoyed my Cocoa Puffs but these days I can't even bring myself to taste them! I love a nice bowl of nutty, steel cut oats in the morning with a little butter and salt! Yum!

Day 5 My birthday! Travis made pancakes, ham, and hashbrowns for me and served me in bed. Once a year he spoils me like this, well, when it's a weekend and he can. Love that man. And I'll add another picture of the cake he made today while I was at an activity with the kids. He went online and researched how to make fondant (used up all of my powdered sugar) and dyed the icings himself! He also made a delicious filling for the cake from walnuts, marshmallows and chocolate chips. Thanks honey, I had a very happy birthday. I was given a new game to play, a puzzle, a fancy pin to wear and a fleece blanket. Smiles everyone. Have a great day.

I'm loving Project 365. It was featured in one of my scrapbooking magazines and it has the layouts. I'm just using SU! stuff when I get the photos printed. Hopefully when the weather gets better. It finally warmed up but it's snowing AGAIN! UGH!

I'm in. Look like I will start tomorrow. I just downloaded the Becky Higgens kit. I actually think I will mount everything on paper and put it in a 12x12 album.

Oh misty! I just LOVE your photos. I feel bad that I haven't seen them until now. I swear it's just killing me around here with all of these sickies.

Happy late birthday! :0( I'm sorry I didn't send you birthday wishes ON your birthday.

I love the cake. Tell Travis that he is so cute! What a good man you have.

And I'm happy to have finally figured out what the signs are that you write. Do you sell them in a craft store or something?

I'm seriously excited for Feb!
