Becky Higgins Project 365
I'm guessing by now most of you have heard of Becky Higgins kit of the month, Project 365. It seems to be the buzz on all the message boards with EVERYONE lining up to purchase the kit when it goes on sale Jan 1st. The January issue of Creating Keepsakes dedicated a few pages to the kit with idea's and suggestions to complete the project.
I really like the concept of documenting a year with a picture a day. This will condition me to carry my camera around at all times. There have been countless times in the past I could of just knocked myself for not having it and missing an opportunity. Maybe, too, this will polish my photography skills, gosh knows I need it.
It is a BIG commitment but a challenge I'm up for. I decided not to purchase the kit, at $39.95 plus $11 and change for shipping I felt I had enough stash and scraps to do my version. The picture above shows the sketch I'm choosing to use for each week in the year. I've started my week on the first of the year instead of Becky's suggestions to start it on the weekend before. I will store my layouts in a 12 X 12, 3 ring naked binder (or two). Also I've decided to do 3 1/2 X 5" sized pictures so if I chose to embellish I'll have room.
I'd love to know if any of you are starting this project and what plans you have if you're not buying the kit. Becky has started a blog specifically for this project. I'm excited to start.
