Oh ye people who tune into my blog. I have an announcement: As a scrapbooker of 15 years, I am no longer scrapbooking our family albums. Am I done with scrapbooking? Absolutely not. I will continue to do individual & personal scrapbooks for each of our 3 kids. But I am taking a whole new approach to preserving our family’s memories, beginning on January 1st.
So what is it that I’m doing, you may wonder. I would LOVE to tell you, because this is something I’m so excited about, and I want YOU to join me. See this? This is called Project 365 and it’s the January kit of the month. (Project 365 is not on the web site yet.)
While the end result is a “scrapbook”, this is not about decorating and designing pages. Heck, you’re not even going to need to use adhesive for this! Project 365 is about 2 things: Photographs. And journaling. (And not even that much journaling! Quick notes & anecdotes.) This project will be the absolute, very best representation of your family’s life (or your personal life) in 2009. Hands down. And the best part? It’s so easy! Trust me.
So much more to share, and I can’t wait! So keep checking my blog all week for updates & more about this concept and this project. Project 365 goes on sale January 1. Until then, let’s enjoy the holidays and get excited for our new, revolutionary way of “scrapbooking” in 2009. Are you with me?
By the way … Are you a blogger? THIS is something you need to check out. Go to bloggled.com and learn about what they can do for you. They’re doing a huge promotion right now and you can be eligible to win something really cool … like a Cricut machine or, HELLO — an iPod Touch. I love my iPod Touch. NOT a blogger? You can still head over and be eligible to win, so that’s cool. Oh – and you need to enter TODAY.
In short, there are two cool services that they can offer: backing up your blog (it’s too easy to accidentally delete your blog) and … this is what I’m really stoked about … they can make a book out of your blog for you. LOVE that. Can’t wait to try it myself. I think this is especially cool if you keep an ongoing journal-style blog about your family’s life. Wouldn’t that be need to have it in book form? And also give copies of this to your kids or other family members? Yeah. Super cool. Anyway, head over to Bloggled and learn more.
