Project 365

A couple friends of mine, Trisha and Amy, recently made me aware of this sweet new scrapbooking project called Project 365 created by Becky from Creating Keepsakes Magazine (that’s a mag for nerdy scrapbookers…like me!). The idea of the project is to take a picture or collect some sort of item each day of your life for one full year. Trisha, Amy, and I all purchased a kit that is offered that helps you put it all together very easily without a lot of the regular scrapbook fuss…which I don’t need since I already have 2 projects going on, with a third in the, uh, oven. 🙂

Anyway, Trisha decided to post some of her pics to her blog, and I thought that was a pretty fun idea, so I thought I would post a few from time to time. Here are the Days of Sluiter Lives so far THIS week…

Monday, January 5: First day of work of 2009. Both Cort and I were a PILE of excitement to get our stuff together and head out to work. Or maybe not?

Tuesday, January 6: Doctor’s appointment day! I know you’ve seen this pic before…in the post below! I mean come on…how could this NOT be the pic of the day?
Wednesday, January 7: Cort gives his new Wii game, Animal Crossings: City Folk, a try WITH his new Wii Speak, of course. So yes, he is playing a video game AND talking to Ben while Ben plays HIS game…and they can visit each other’s cities…oh it’s hours of fun…apparently!
Thursday, January 8: Oh man…BLT night here at the Sluiters. This is always fun because A) there is bacon involved. B) Cort takes over the “cooking” for the night and C) bacon is involved
I won’t be posting EVERY week…but from time to time…you will see little updates on how I am doing with Project 365!

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.

    mmm, BLT’s, I just might have to be getting some of that when we go out….project 365 is a GREAT idea for when your baby girl arrives, and yes I said girl.

  2. If scrapbooking is nerdy, then get me a poket protector because I’m the biggest “nerd” of them all! It’s my passion, obsession, and my compulsion!!! lol Good luck with that project!
