Project 52

Posted by PatriciaD on January 8, 2010

Many start the new year with a 365 project but personally I would be very happy with a layout a week so that’s why I’ve chosen the Project 52…that’s one layout a week.  You with me on this?  At the end of the year you will have a whole years worth of photos and 52 layouts…TOTALLY AWESOME!!

Here are some tips that might help you as you get going –

* take your camera with you everywhere, I literally don’t leave home without my camera

* take a really close-up shots and whole scene picture of all events

* you might create a logbook and write down the information about your photos, places, people present, etc.

* ask someone to hold you accountable, someone who will buy into your project (mom, sister, good friend, spouse, etc.) and won’t let you get lax for too many days or weeks

* you might want to choose a theme, a word, subject, etc. to take a photo of/from each day…it could be a monthly theme, weekly whatever works for you

* make every day special and special days every week!!  Don’t wait to use the special linens or the special soaps or the special dishes…celebrate life!!

*  if you were to miss a day here or there don’t give up on the whole project just take a couple more photos today or better yet write something down (journaling) about what you didn’t take photos of

* Set aside time on a weekly basis to update your scrapbook(s), put it on your calendar
