So last year, there was this new trend in the scrapbooking world called "Project Life" which is described as a "back-to-basics approach to memory-keeping". I read lots of paper crafting blogs and I enjoyed stumbling on random people's Project Life pages so I decided to start doing it this year. Basically, you take a week at a time and document the itty bitty parts of life (and the big ones of course) and continue throughout the year. Most of the stuff you'd document are minor things no one else would care about besides you, but it'd be fun to reminisce about one day in the future.
So this is my first Project Life week, Jan. 1-5th.
Each "page" has space for 6-7 photos, memories, quotes, receipts, just enough for a week.
I really haven't scrapbooked in a couple of years. I still make a lot of cards and do a few random scrapbook projects but nothing on a regular basis in quite a while. So I'm excited to start this project. In the end, I'll have 52 'pages' and a whole year of memories documented.
I also finished (finally) my very first real quilt.
I finished most of it last summer but was stalled by the binding.
But thanks to the advice from a few quilting friends and youtube videos, I finally mustered up the courage to finish it. More than likely, this will be my last quilt. I'm very happy with it, but it's a lot of work and paper crafts are still my calling. I have enough paper to fill up an entire room so I don't have any space for fabric. But it was a fun, enjoyable project and I can cross that craft off my never ending crafts-to-try list.
