This is my third year of Project 365 and I have mentioned before that I download them onto my Flickr site. I love some of these photos and how they remind me of everyday life. Like, when it is two minutes before midnight and I suddenly realize I haven't taken a photo. Some of the most mundane shots, such as a book on my bedside table, remind me of what I was reading or trigger other simple memories. Sometimes these photos surprise me by how much they mean to me, everyday objects that I would not otherwise think to record.
But I have always felt that there was something missing..... and I have wanted to find a way of putting these photos into an album so that I can enjoy them even more.
Then yesterday I went to a new crop, organised by the amazing and talented Ann Freeman. And what a lovely day I had, with friends, Ann's warm welcome, and her lovely homemade lunch. Ann had also prepared a layout to do in the class (or take away, as in my case!) and it started me thinking about how I could do something similar with my Project 365 photos....
.... then during the day I browsed some of Ann's albums that she had bought along. One of these was a Project 12 album using 12 inch double pages. And I immediately saw how this could offer flexibility and space for me to use for my Project 365 photos. I could choose some or all of the photos, but I need time to let the idea settle and spread before it comes together. It is exciting to know that I shall be taking down one of my 12 inch albums to use because I also have a plan to 'Use it Up' this year. But more about this soon.
As you might know, I like to include a photo or two with my post so here are a couple of recent 365 photos.
Some of my blog friends may recognise familiar faces in this photo taken at last weeks Eclectic Keepsakes Crop. It's the 15th and I've already been to 2 Crops. What a great way to start the New Year!! As well as these I also have 2 Craft Shows and a residential weekend in my diary during the next 6 weeks.
Who's a lucky girl then?!
