big thanks to photojojo for featuring my project life album in the new year's eve newsletter!

if you are here from there, let me give you the scoop on project life. it's a super easy scrapbooking system created by becky higgins. all you really need is a binder album, page protectors, a core kit, a pen and your photos! it can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. there are some really great editions out right now with a couple of more on the way (i'm really looking forward to using seafoam in 2013!). and becky recently released some fun and practical baby editions. i've got the neutral one; hoping to make an olivia specific book over the next few months.

as for me, i love to print photos to fit the various pockets and add labels to jot some journaling. my trust date stamp helps me document and i love me some pretty washi tape to embellish.

i also LOVE to take screen shots of twitter, facebook, etc. on my iphone and slip those in to the 3x4 pockets. super fun. business cards and little things like the admission badge from the met are also fun to hold on to. basically, project life lets me hoard all those little things without making me look like an acutal hoarder!

if you are new to project life, january 1st is a great place to start! but don't worry if it takes you a few weeks to gather all of your supplies. the great thing about this project is that you can work on it at your own pace. you could do a half-page spread per week or even a entire month! the great thing is just to document what you can, when you can. it is so much fun to look back on when the year is done.
