Project Life

****Alert****  JoJo is now using his l's so instead of saying wook, he says look.  It started all of the sudden this past week.  ***This had nothing to do with the post, but I wanted it documented...thank you****

I have decided to do Project Life...I want something to work towards each month this brand new year.  I am using Year.o.graphy from Memory Works.  You can order it here.

As soon as I receive the package in my hot little hands, I will share the photos.  I just wanted to share with you how I will be tackling this project.

1.  I will be doing monthly spreads.  I know myself.  There is absolutely no way that I will keep up with a weekly project.
2.  I am going to make the album ahead of time so that all I have to do is add photos.
3.  If I need extra space, for photos or journaling, I will add 8.5x11 pages to the middle of each spread.
4.  Each month, I will take a family portrait to add to the layout.
5.  Each month, I will take a self-portrait to add to the layout.  
6.  I am going to try and keep up with the photos online as whatever photos I use for layouts will be uploaded to Shutterfly for my annual photo book.  That way I won't have to sit for nine hours at the computer the day before I send them out.  I actually sat at the computer for 9 hours...I'm not even exaggerating.  
7.  I'm really going to try and add a lot of journaling and photos that represent our daily life...and that provide an insight to what happens in this crazy house.
8.  I'm going to share the layouts in a timely manner here on my blog.

Whew..that's all.  If you're going to participate, let me know in the comments section.  I'd love to hear how you're organizing your photos too.
