I've never really hunted out projects. I just mill around sites and blogs looking for inspiration. However, while milling a few weeks ago, I came across Ali Edward's blog. Yes, this was the first time I'd ever visited... *GAWK* Yes, I know, don't ask, I have no idea how I haven't been there before.
So apart from the HUGE scrappy inspirational resource bucket I uncovered, something else caught my eye. Ali's Week in the Life project. Honestly, I think it's a fantastic idea. Documenting everyday 'stuff' is something I rather enjoy and who says scrapbooking has to be for special memories only? Your daily memories ARE special, right? Trust me on this.
From the kitty lounging in the sun...
To The Boy putting my Go-go kit on top of the door (I'm 5ft, the door is about 6 1/2 ft)...
...which I spent 5 minutes trying to knock down and failing causing much hilarity for him and grouchiness for me.
I actually loved this idea so much I've been documenting this last week, also because I've been wedding dress shopping and as irritating as I've found it, I know I'll want to remember it. So I'm documenting my wedding planning ^_^ (How snowed under will I be at this rate! *lol*) It was really interesting, even more so as I work in a secure office and I think taking photo's of personal data or having a camera out would have me sacked! So the camera was away for a big part of my day, yet I still got alot of photos. This really was quite a surprise for me, I expected it to be much harder than it was.
I also found my photography skills improved too, I played with the settings more and more and have some photo's that are fabulous and fun. Be brave, it's worth it.
Anyhow, Ali does this every year and this year, she's chosen 25th July to 31st July. So, I'll be giving it a go, it's free and should be alot of fun. Camera battery charged, memory card cleared, essential chocolate supplies, CHECK!
So it is with renewed vigour I approach this project and quite alot off enthusiasm. All that remains is for me to get The Boy on board!
Funnily enough, Shimelle, of errrmmm, Shimelle.com fame had a guest spot there yesterday. Guess what the subject is... Have a click, take a peek HERE. *watch the video*
Oh and I meant to mention, I've cleared my work desk too!
