I've toyed with the idea of doing Project Life this year, mostly because it involves buying new stash and I'm a sucker for buying things. In the end, I decided that I don't have time, as evidenced by the fact that I've just finished documenting August 2011. I will say that we've been fairly busy with this whole 'family of four' thing for the last few months and only just climbed out of our little bunker.
I have some friends doing Project Life, and I'm looking forward to seeing what they produce over the year, but I've decided to focus on Document 2012. This year I want to capture more of the everyday and the stories, rather than just the events we attend. I love how my friend Leanne blends the two in her Document 2011 album. I just need to remember to print the random photos and write the stories, which would be easier if I assembled the pages as the year went along instead of working 6 months behind. In the spirit of which, I've finally sorted a system for collecting ephemera and I'm moving my Document notebook down to the kitchen to make my life easier. And I've borrowed a suggestion from a PL blogger; I've started December's pages while I still remember (most of) the little things!
On a slightly different note, we're just back from a lovely weekend at my parents' house to celebrate my birthday. I love this photo of me and the kids - I don't appear in enough of my family photos!!
