From kdsmommy

I haven't tried to get email updates from here. How do you do that?



To get email updates, you go to the very bottom of the page - it's the last thing before the advertisements on the right hand side. Chose email updates and it will have a pull down menu to receive updates instantly, daily or weekly. Chose the one you want and you will be emailed any time someone posts on the thread.

Hope this helps.

Hey girls.

I've got another tidbit to share.

www.ohlife.com

this site sends me an email every day asking me "how'd your day go?" It helps me get the day journaled so I don't forget. I can sit down and do it before I go to bed, and it saves it privately in my own folder.

because it comes to me with a question, it sort of demands an answer and I have been able to keep my journal recording up to date without forgetting or putting it off until later.

It's VERY helpful.




I love this! Thank you so much for sharing! I'm going to share it with my daughters!

I have been checking out this challenge for a few days now. I'm just worried at how far I will actually be able to get in it. I was thinking of using one of my Smash Books for this challenge, since I have yet to use them. So I am going to give it a try and see how it goes

Morning ladies.

Gads. I'm feeling SO much better today! I'm still pretty shaky and weak, but at least I got VERTICAL without getting light headed for the first time in almost two weeks.

You know you're committed to a 365 project when you haul yourself out of a sick bed to take your first photograph of the year!

Here's what I think will be the cover page photo for my album, which is sort of tentatively titled "The Story of My Life."

The Story of My Life



2013. Up and Running.
Pat. Running to catch up already!

Woohoo! My first LO is completed ladies! Just a note...I am not doing a Project Life album, but rather trying to get as many layouts done with existing photos as possible.

I am a SAHM with 4 children ages 24, 21, 18 and 8. I am cyberschooling my youngest. I have been happily married to my high school sweetheart for 24 years. We have 5 kittehs and just since Christmas a hamster LOL

I have been papercrafting, blogging and participating in challenges for many years, but since being diagnosed with fibromyalgia last year, I simply havent been able to do as much. I am determined to change that this year! I am looking forward to playing along here and making some new friends

I would like to give this a try. I started a Project Life several years ago but only lasted a couple of months. Maybe doing this with others will keep me motivated to complete.

I've been a member for awhile but have just lurked. It's time I participate. I signed up for a two other challenges and think this will be the last one. They are addictive.

Please let me know if I'm in and what a PM is.

Thanks,

Ooooo Erin, the SMASH book! That's a great idea! I did not even think of that! I've been trying to work on one of my son, but I'm only up to his birth - and he's 6 months old now!

Which brings me to a question... Does each week's page have to be about that particular week, or can it be past pages??? Just curious as I probably know the answer already!

I live in TN by way of GA. Married to the most wonderful man. Two daughters: One pregnant (girl) with a 10 month old girl and they will be 1 year apart. You'll see lots of layouts on them. Second getting married this Spring.

Missy is my very spoiled rotten Malti-Poo that is 98% Poodle.

Tres and had a wonderful time in London visiting another scrapper on here. When and where is our next trip?

I am doing Project Life - Book of Me - Life in a year of photos all rolled into one project. So I guess I can call it my Plbomlyp - hmmm need something else. Maybe I'll just call it Project Me, all my Baby Girls.

I think you'll find what you are looking for here! A great group of ladies who love to scrap and want to finish this project. A smash book would work great!

I just moved to Puerto Rico in August and my household goods came in October - I'm still unpacking and haven't come across my Smash book yet. I'll be so edxcited when I do!

Welcome!

In response to your question: it's really up to you. I don't want to put a "limit" on what your project is. The only stipulation is that if you want to be eligible for the weekly drawing that the LO you scrapped for this week (Jan 1-6) is posted on the thread. And so on. If you miss a week, you can jump back in the next. It's all about stying motivated to finish!!

Hope that helps.

JCI. Hi everyone!

I have a plan for my first page. And I actually went outside and ran a couple of errands today and didn't collapse from the effort. I think I'm definitely on the mend!

Maybe I'll even scrap tomorrow.

I wanted to do project life for awhile just not the funds. I just looked at Scrapbook.coms version Simple Stories-Snap. It mixes traditional and project life life styles together. I just ordered but its a 6x8 so I will work on my first page of me. It gives me freedom I think for great weeks I want traditional pages and those weeks too busy. THis will be hard not big on my photos being taken. It my be cathartic to. Some happy some sad. Life is not always happy.

Good morning!

I have my first template picked out and ready for week one. My PL is based on photos of the week, rather than photo of the day. Some days I don't take any photos (nothing of interest or no time) and other days I take a ton of photos. So as I post process them, I will pick out my top photos and go from there. At least that's my plan!

Mine is done, but I can't post it before Monday morning when the Nuts About Sketches reveal goes up.

First week and already I've messed up. I should have read more carefully. It's totally my fault. :-( Darn.

I don't think there's a way around the problem either. I have a sketch a week due there, and I was planning to piggy back those into this challenge, but the Sunday posting is going to be problematic. I guess I just wasn't thinking about due dates here and there conflicting.

Don't suppose it would be at ALL possible to run Monday to Monday on this?

Pat, you just need to run 1 week behind on this LO. In other words, create another lo for this week, then use your Monday LO for the following Sunday. I don't know if that helps, but I plan to piggyback some of mine too. I have mine done for this week, but was waiting to post when everyone else does.

Hope that helps. I know sometimes I get my brain set on something and I don't see a simple solution. I'm sure you would have gotten there, though.

But then it wouldn't be "this week's photo." It'd be LAST week's photo, so it still wouldn't be right. I do good to get ONE project a week done. Sometimes - I can get to two, but not usually.

I will not be able to post my layout this Sunday. I will be traveling 3 hours to visit my mother in the hospital. She is not doing well.

A good friend has offered to drive me because she doesn't want me to go by myself (neither do I)

She has had 2 strokes and has a feeding tube as of yesterday afternoon.

I will still do my weekly layout and post it. I'll be on time for the rest.

Funny that you mention this. I was thinking of doing my PL weekly from Monday to Sunday and finishing it up every Monday but realized that the posting date was Sunday. I would be happy to change but I will work with the original rules as well. I might be posting really late on Sunday night though

Tres, check out your local Ms (if you have one) to see if they have these... (below) I found them in a 25pc multipack that's cheaper per page than buying the 10packs from EP or Simple Stories. They are slightly different sizes and windows than the others, but at least I can find them in a store instead of having to order online! Just my two cents!

I don't have my page protectors either and wouldn't you know it, I ordered some online before I read everyone's posts. But an excuse to go to Michael's is always a good one and I know I didn't get enough page protectors to do a whole year.

I have my page planned and hope to get done & posted tomorrow. I can't wait to see everyone's LOs.

I need some clarification on posting a layout here, please.

You need to post on Sunday if you want to be considered for the RAK, right?

You can still post your layout here after Sunday or at any time but you are not eligible for the RAK, right?

Hello, ladies...

Would it be too late for me to join? This sounds like an excellent idea for what may be an interesting year for us. We are possibly adopting a dog into our family, and there are a ton of things going on this year and I'm going thru some health issues that hopefully will get resolved.. so some lifestyle changes may be required.

I am going to make this very easy for me, I hope it's ok... I will use the SMASH book, and I have a polaroid (yes, they still exist) and it would work awesomely with the smashing. I also have an over-abundance of supplies that were bought on sale due to years of hoarding and not enough scrapping.. so hopefully this will help motivate me to use up my supplies.

Looking forward to the challenge!

Hi everyone!
I had signed up for this challenge by PM, but I haven't had a chance to post on this thread yet. My grandpa passed away on New Year's eve and my family has been dealing with that, so I haven't had the time to post.

My name is Alisha and I'm 19 (almost 20) years old. I was homeschooled from the middle of 4th grade through the 12th grade. It was after I started homeschooling that I found a love for sewing and scrapbooking.

I am not going to college, but am instead working on creating my own business through my Etsy shop to sell the things I make. I am working very hard at becoming a professional seamstress of historically accurate clothes for 18" dolls such as American Girl dolls. I have sold small items on Etsy for the past few years, but I am trying to make it my full time job this year. That is one of my goals.

I live in Florida with my parents and our fifteen year old pitbull named Brisco.

I look forward to doing this challenge with all of you. Hopefully it will motivate me to get at least one layout finished a week as I didn't get many layouts made last year.

~Alisha

Attention ladies: several comments indicate that a Monday deadline for posting would be preferrable. Since this challenge is about motivation, I'm going to change the posting deadline to Monday.

I know there will be some confusion but for a few of our participants it will mean they can fully participate in another challenge too.

** NEW POSTING DEADLINE ----- MONDAY **

I need some clarification on posting a layout here, please.

You need to post on Sunday if you want to be considered for the RAK, right?

You can still post your layout here after Sunday or at any time but you are not eligible for the RAK, right?






Kidsmommy....is this correct?

Hello, ladies...

Would it be too late for me to join? This sounds like an excellent idea for what may be an interesting year for us. We are possibly adopting a dog into our family, and there are a ton of things going on this year and I'm going thru some health issues that hopefully will get resolved.. so some lifestyle changes may be required.

I am going to make this very easy for me, I hope it's ok... I will use the SMASH book, and I have a polaroid (yes, they still exist) and it would work awesomely with the smashing. I also have an over-abundance of supplies that were bought on sale due to years of hoarding and not enough scrapping.. so hopefully this will help motivate me to use up my supplies.

Looking forward to the challenge!



No it is not too late to join! I will put your name on the list on the first page! Just a wee little change: posting deadling has been changed to MONDAY.

Yes. This is correct. Except for one wee change: I have decided to switch the posting day to Monday instead of Sunday. So, everything you said was correct - just MONDAY instead of Sunday.

Pat, you just need to run 1 week behind on this LO. In other words, create another lo for this week, then use your Monday LO for the following Sunday. I don't know if that helps, but I plan to piggyback some of mine too. I have mine done for this week, but was waiting to post when everyone else does.

Hope that helps. I know sometimes I get my brain set on something and I don't see a simple solution. I'm sure you would have gotten there, though.





Just so you know: I've changed the posting deadline to coincide with your other challenge. So the posting deadline is now MONDAY!!

I finished my pages late last night. I'll have to try to get a good pic of it today. I am even more in love with the Sn@p products now too!

Attention ladies: several comments indicate that a Monday deadline for posting would be preferrable. Since this challenge is about motivation, I'm going to change the posting deadline to Monday.

I know there will be some confusion but for a few of our participants it will mean they can fully participate in another challenge too.

Is anyone here going to do Project Life with the insert page protectors, a la Becky Higgins style?

This is the route I am going to do this year but now that i have seen some of the great tradtional layouts I might waffle on that. Nice work ladies...off to leave some love.

Tres, I am going to alternate between those page protectors and doing this digitally. I wanted to work with the digi template first, just to see how it would look. I am hoping to mix these pages in my scrapbook with some of my more traditional pages.

I will not be able to post my layout this Sunday. I will be traveling 3 hours to visit my mother in the hospital. She is not doing well.

A good friend has offered to drive me because she doesn't want me to go by myself (neither do I)

She has had 2 strokes and has a feeding tube as of yesterday afternoon.

I will still do my weekly layout and post it. I'll be on time for the rest.



DaNel, so sorry to hear about your mom! Keep us posted!

I'm actually working on another one for this week. I don't think I'll have it DONE today, because I'm also in the middle of cleaning up the last bits of my scrap room mess, but maybe...

I'm doing a mix of both too. I haven't found the Sn@p page protectors I ordered so until then, I'm making my own! I moved to Puerto Rico in August and got my household goods in late October - I suck at unpacking.

Just signed up for ohlife.com! Thanks for the great tip.

A little about myself: I am a transplanted Canadian living in the US. Married for almost 11 years, two kids (a boy 7 and a girl 5)and I am trying PL for the first time this year. I love to travel - spent my birthday in Paris last year and went to London with Sassy Suzi aka Suzette back in September. Love that I found sb.com since I find so much inspiration and great friends here.




Where were you from originally?

DaNel, so sorry to hear about your mom! Keep us posted!



She had been released to the nursing home last night. She looked so much better than she did the day after Christmas (before the strokes). One of the nice nurses had brushed and braided her hair.

She had color in her cheeks and was not a gaunt as before. She was asleep the whole time.

I am very grateful that my friend went with me so I did not have to go alone. It gave us good time to catch up with each other.

Sending prayers for your mom DaNel!

Got my first layout done - and it's my first-ever three page spread! I didn't start out intending to have three pages, but I ended up with so many great pictures there was no other way to include them all but to do three pages. I'm off to upload them to my gallery, then I'll be back to see if I can figure out how to post them into a thread and check out all the other layouts and leave some love!

This is really fun...I think the first page is updated. If I missed someone (not intentionally) let me know and I'll be sure to fix it.

REMEMBER: The deadline has been changed permanently to MONDAY instead of Sunday.

Im doing a 2 page spread for mine. I had an awful time getting a picture though without some natural light...I hate that it gets dark so early. So I ended up taking a pic of each side.
