I am so excited about Project 365...what a fun, new way of taking photos & recording your daily routines & family happenings! The idea started with Becky Higgins' and her Creating Keepsakes Kit of the Month which you can see here:
This kit went on sale on Jan. 1st & sold out in a matter of minutes...the website crashed, customer service has been so-so, just a real BIG mess. I tried to order 2 kits on the 1st, received 3 confirmation emails, and after holding for 2 hours on Monday....I have been told that only one of my confirmation #'s is valid and is in "fullfillment"...whatever that means! I'm still not 100% convinced that I am getting a kit...but either way, I am taking photos everyday & loving the process! If I don't get Becky's kit, then I will just create my own.
So on to the important stuff! My photos!
So this is obviously my photo for Jan. 1st...frustration @ the computer when trying to order the Project 365 kit...wonder how many have this photo for Day 1??? he, he, h e
But just as a backup for Jan. 1st, I couldn't resist this super cute photo of my niece @ her 8th Bday party...those darn candles just wouldn't stay blown out! The photo is a little hazy because the those candles created SO much smoke! Too funny!
I woke up on Jan. 2nd not feeling too great (fighting ANOTHER sinus infection...grrr...) but as soon as I took a look outside, I knew I just had to step outside for a quick photo...the sunrise was gorgeous with purples, pinks & oranges!
Have I said how hard it is choosing just one photo for each day??? Here's another photo for Jan. 2nd...my DH loves to scratch KitKat's ears...& can you tell how much she loves it???
Moving on to Jan. 3rd...my DH & oldest son are working together building a grill/smoker...lots of welding, thinking, planning & re-thinking are going into this project! But my DH has wanted to build this "dream grill" for quite a while, so I am glad he is finally doing it! He says he's scrapbooking...very funny...
Sunday, Jan. 4th: My youngest son lives to hunt...he got a brand new shotgun for Christmas, so he has been taking advantage of every possible opportunity to hunt over the Christmas break. Before they headed out, I said "Be sure and get our PHOTO OF THE DAY". Good job, Dad.
So it's Jan. 5th & it's MONDAY...my least favorite day of the week. Today's photo is pretty simple; just my desk and my 32 oz. Diet Pepsi...& yes, it's a necessity!!! I am sure that I could not function without it!
Moving on to Tuesday, Jan. 6th. Christmas break is over & the hectic pace of school has resumed! My oldest son had a basketball game out of town tonight, so I drove home from work to pickup my youngest (he's on the left) and 2 of his buddies. Before we headed out of town I said "Ok, I am taking at least one photo every day this year...so you are my photo today!" They didn't duck & run (I was shocked) They grinned & I love this photo! Not a photo I would normally think to take!
Photo of the day for Jan. 7th...this is not what I thought was going to be my photo. I stopped to fill up with gas today & decided to record for posterity the fact that gas is under $2.00 per gallon. Anyway, on Wed. night my youngest asked if I had taken a photo yet today...did I mention that my family has really gotten into this project??? Love it!!! I told him I had, etc. He sat there on the couch with KitKat with this cute look on his face & I just couldn't resist!
Finally, today's photo! We had a junior high basketball game tonight...my youngest is an 8th grader. My DH records the games for the coach...thought this would be perfect for Project 365! He just laughed when he saw I was taking his pic...probably thinking, jeez, what is she thinking?
Well, that's it so far! I am pretty pleased with my photos this week...& really enjoying this process! Check back in...my plan is to try to post my photos weekly. hopefully. oh yeah, GO SOONERS!!!
