A quick note: I am still getting asked if there will be a re-order on the Project 365 kits. We still don’t know that answer. I promise that as soon as I do know, you guys (my blog readers) will be the first to know.
You will notice that I will be sharing more photo ideas here on my blog. If you’re involved in Project 365, perhaps you’ll be inspired for one of your daily shots. Even if you’re not doing Project 365, you may get ideas for ways to capture your life on “film”.
Here’s idea #1 for today:
It is what it is. Cereal. Do you eat the same thing for breakfast each morning? Take a picture of it. This is part of your everyday life. How appropriate to include it somewhere in your 365!
Idea #2 for today comes from my friend, Nanci. She was driving down the road and it was such a gorgeous day that it made her think of her trip to Hawaii when she was 17 years old. Great memories. Why not put a photo from that trip and include it in her Project 365? She says, “It would be fun to throw a couple of reminiscent photos and journaling in our 365 if we find ourselves daydreaming of another time and place!” I could not agree with Nanci more. Who says your picture of the day has to be taken that day?
(That’s a little flashback to my childhood slumber parties. My grandma made that giant doll for me.) If you have a picture of the “memory” that you think about on a particular day, scan it, print it to size, and include it in your 365 album. If you don’t have a picture to accompany the memory, just write whatever you feel like writing about the memory and that can take the place of that day’s picture spot.
So how cool is that? Your Project 365 is not only a representation of what happens in your life this year, but also includes some of your reminiscing of past happenings. I love that. Go Nanci.
Do you have a great photo idea that is sure to inspire others? E-mail the photo to me (email@example.com) with a brief explanation and I’ll share a few of those here on my blog.
