My life in 2010....

I have a new year's goal of doing a scrapbook page a day in 2010. That may sound crazy, but I did it in Sept., Oct. and Dec. last year and really enjoyed the process and the results. As long as I do one album per month and put the paper in at the beginning of the month, I seem to get into the flow of taking the photos and desiging a page for each day. It becomes a diary, of sorts, and I really love how I remain more mindful throughout the day, enjoying the ordinary moments and documenting them. I am also using supplies that I have around the house. This album I bought ages ago on clearance and never used and I filled it with coordinating paper by going through my stash and dividing up my paper by season. A bin for each. Hopefully being organized at the get go will keep me going when things get tough. So here is what my year looks like so far...

I made a page about my sisters last day home before heading back to California. Loved how much our girls look like us in this photo!!


I really enjoyed reading Heather's post about her word of the year Celebrate!!
Just discovered Marc Boutavant's illustration work while at the library yesterday. So inspiring!! I adore the colors and the characters he creates.
Today's page is about Lowell going back to school and the alphabet book he created for homework. I love the pictures he drew!

Hope to share many more pages with you throughout the year.

Do you print the pics yourself? Or do you stay behind by a few days at a time? Those are beautiful pages!!

Lowell's Rudolf and Queen are awesome! That is a great idea for a page.. You must be programed by now for journaling each day... I think you will be very pleased by the end of the year!!!

I too have made it my goal to sketch/journal a page or two each day for the entire year. A lofty goal, but a totally fulfilling one. I started doing this for the last few months of 2009, but I can't wait to see a years worth of pages at the end of 2010. Keep it up!
