It’s been a long time since I consistently collected memories in one place. I have been ever-so-slowly working through a backlog of photographs, but I’ve really missed having an up-to-the-moment collection of what’s going on in our lives. I’ve watched Project Life grow from just a glimmer in Becky Higgin’s eye into an industry unto itself, but I never could get on board before. I loved what I saw Ali and Lisa and Stephanie doing of course, but gracious, where my life was at the time? There was no way, ‘hose. Stephanie started using a Handbook from Studio Calico last year and that’s when it clicked with me- I could do that! I can handle four, four by three spaces! So here’s the beginning: my title page. I would have had the first week done already, save the fact that my printer decided to misbehave. I’ve thought about getting an Epson Picture Mate or a Selphy just for printing pictures- I know that I’d make the cost back pretty quickly in what I end up having to pay to have them printed outside the home. It feels good. I’m glad to know I’ll have a place to collect our stories this year.
