I've seen posts all over about Project Life. I think it's such a neat idea and while I wish I could join in... I just don't have the funds to support a project of that magnitude this year. So, I've decided to do what I like to call, a "Tag Along" book... my own little version of Project Life. The book I'm using this year is called the Custom Unfussy Stitched Journal from Handmade:Modern. I got it for Christmas and I think it's the perfect size and everything to do a 2012 documentation of our life! I may end up needing to buy a second book..., but we'll cross that bridge when we get there. I can't tell you how excited I am to start this project! I think it's going to be a great little book to look back through in years to come!
Here are a few peeks inside. I have yet to put anything in it, but I will posting updates every so often to show you my progress!
*Everything in the following pictures was made by Elizabeth of Handmade:Modern. I did not make any of this.
|Adorable cover with my initial on it! :) Love the lace tie!|
|How great is that yellow stripe fabric? And, the cute elephant overlay!|
|Love that there's an envelope... will be great for storing!|
|Just had to include this... that HI is so fun!|
|This is actually vellum over a gray pattern... LOVE!|
|And, the fantastic binding!|
I most definitely encourage you to stop by Handmade:Modern and pick one of these up for yourself! It's fabulous! And, thanks to Stephanie for sharing Handmade:Modern on her blog... I'm so glad she did because now I have this fabulous book! :D
So, yep, that's my plan for keeping track of 2012!
