P365 - Week 1

So far, so good with my Project 365 plans!  In a previous post, I blogged about the kit I'm using for my P365 book.  It truly is as easy as I thought it would be!  Check out week 1!

I added a few elements from Polka Dot Pixel's "After Midnight" kit, just to give it a personal touch.  I'd like to do this with some of my pages to show when something really special happened, or to go with a theme of one of the days.

I have put a plan in place for organizing my thoughts and recording what happened each day (if you're like me, things get fuzzy by the end of the week).  I have a lovely planner that holds space where I can write down a short snippet of what happens each day.  And if I get behind on my project, I can easily glance back at the week in my planner to be able to journal about each photo.

And putting week one together took no time at all! I spent more time getting a photo off my phone than I did placing photos on the layout.  ** This project is low stress for me.  So, I'm not going to worry about using my good camera to capture a moment. If all I have handy is my cell phone, that photo will do. This book is about the memories, not photography skills (which, I'm lacking, but, anyway....).

If you're interested in this kit, check it out at Owl Tree Studio: Project 365.

I'll be back with an example of a "special" page and week 2 soon!

Love this - great job for making it low stress - I tend to put too much pressure on myself when doing projects like this (enter December Daily). You've approached it with the right attitude! Congrats!
