A big HELLO to Project Life 2014.
I cannot tell you how excited I am to embark on another year of Project Life. As many of you may know (if not, now you know it! ;)), I failed quite miserably back in 2012 when I first started Project Life, only making it up to the 5th month but in 2013, I did pretty darn well! *puffing up my chest*
Right at this moment when I’m writing this post, I have only ONE more week to go before I can officially wrap up my 2013 Project! Oh yay! Oh yay! *happy dance* Hahaha! I spent last weekend with a flu and blocked nose but that didn’t stop me from getting my pages done. I sat down for half a day yesterday and completed Week 50 and 51! I’m so happy to get them completed and I’m going to take a short rest before I move on to the last week in the next few days.
Well, I know this is a no brainer post but it took me a long time to think what I wanted to say. Year 2013 was overall a great year for me, with minor hiccups here and there. But overall, it was a good one. After nearly 52 weeks of documenting Project Life, I’m still loving it.
That goes to say that despite all the busyness of having a full time job, being a mother of a growing 9 year old boy who has high functioning autism and also requires a lots of attention and guidance, constantly traveling for work (I’m not complaining!) and always trying to keep up with Project Life, AND I’m lucky if I can get a good 5-6 hours of undisturbed sleep everyday, 2013 was good to me. This Project Life has documented almost every facet of my life in 2013. Some stories may be lost along the way but most of them are safely tucked in that 2 big binders now sitting on my shelf.
I’ve found a good foundation and system that works really well for me in 2013, a style I can call my own and I’m going to continue with that in 2014. I wouldn’t be doing anything differently this year, but I will be flexible and open to any new ideas and changes if needed. For now, my plan for 2014 will be to continue using the same 12×12 format and weekly documentation.
My title page has also been done two weeks ago but this page remains exclusive to the Day By Day class, so I cannot share the complete spread here. But if you’ve joined the class, I believe you’ve seen my title page in the class.
I think I’m good to go for now. My photos for Week 1 have been downloaded, just waiting to print them and I can start putting them together. Like I always do the past year, I work one week behind so I’ll start my Week 1 spread this weekend and will share them early next week.
So, what’s your Project Life plan in 2014? Will you do something different from 2013 or you’re going to continue doing what you did in 2013 just like me? What have you learned from your 2013 Project Life? Do feel free to share your plans, I would love to hear about them.
As for those of you who will be taking the first step in embarking Project Life for the first time this year, do you already have any plans what you’re going to do?
Anyway, throughout the month of January, I’ll be sharing some of my personal experience with Project Life on some fundamental topics such as
- photo organization, photo printing from home & my favorite phone apps
- basic organization of my Project Life kits, tools I use & must-have materials
- Project Life process flow and quick tip to stay current
- my workspace in detail
Once I’m done with the last week of 2013 and a wrap up page, I’ll be sharing those pages too.
Have a great start to your Project Life and let’s keep each other inspired throughout the year!
