Project Life: week 1

Well, so far Project Life is a success! We've been keeping it simple so far: some photos, some micro-journals, some ticket stubs, but I can see us introducing some more scrapbooky things later. Shon's only written one entry for it as of now, but he's reminded me to take snapshots and seems to be interested in the project.
Here's our first week:
It included a canceled flight from Milwaukee to Boston (snowstorms!), 46 hours in Maine (family! snow!), driving through 4 states in one day (Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Georgia), working on turning an old dresser into a TV stand, and taking Bruno for a jog.

New Project

So here I am, embarking on a new project - Project Life. I saw a mention of it somewhere on the web a couple of months ago and fell in love: I've always wanted to make scrapbooks, but never had a) money, b) more importantly, the talent and the style for it. This thing, however, I can manage: take pictures, write notes/quotes/micro-journals on pre-designed card that fit into a matching binder, repeat 365 (or 366) times. What's even better, I can get Shon to participate without having to break both of his legs.
The things arrived yesterday, we are starting today. I will try hard to make a weekly wrap-up and blog about it.
