We all know that I’m obsessed with beautiful photos… no surprise. But in this new year I have put a challenge on myself to really try and capture those special daily moments through photography. My talented, cute friend Becky Higgins lit a fire to this little spark-of-an-idea when I had a chat with her at the Creative Connection Event.
I’m not sure about how all of you other creative women feel, but having an easy, think-free way to journal my stories/memories is something that I honestly feel so grateful to Becky for… especially after a long day.
A lot of the time I would find myself getting completely overwhelmed by scrapbooking… wondering which pretty paper to choose, how to layer it, what to cut it with, should I add a brad, a button, a flower, some glitter…. AHHH!
It was all too much, so I would quit.
The Project Life kit gives me a no excuse, sure-fire way to make certain that no matter HOW I assemble my albums pages, it will turn out stunning every time. Literally an answer to my prayers. And because Becky is a trend-setting designer, blogger, Mother and entrepreneur, you can bet your bottom dollar that all of the products included are high quality, timeless in style… but right on trend.
You can view and purchase all of Becky’s products on the Project Life site, get inspired through daily posts on Becky’s Blog and even follower her on Facebook and twitter, to receive inspirational quotes and photo ideas for unique ways to capture all of those special moments you won’t want to miss.
The reason I wanted to share this with you is (mainly because I love it, and knew you would too) but also, because I’ve had a bunch of readers wondering what is going on with all of my Instagram feed and Facebook updates lately. More specifically, the “photo-a-day” challenge images.
So here’s the low-down…
I know that not everyone has phones compatible to take part in this little venture, but nonetheless, I wanted to share with you what I’ve been up to and how I’ve been documenting MY daily photos “on-the-go”, so far. Just recently I did a post on the Instagram and Picframe apps so you can check that out as a resource, as to how I get the specific look to my images.
However, I’ve only touched on this a bit… but you can now print your Instagram’d photos into magnets,
Perfect for sliding right into some of those Project Life pocket pages!
I’ve also recently discovered a great new app (to me) called ‘My365’.
An easy way for me to keep all of my daily phone photos in order, so I know what days and months I took them. Genius!
So are you overwhelmed yet? ha! Don’t be… because here’s the thing, once you have everything downloaded and ready to go on your phone, you’re basically done. All you need to do now is take pictures of those cute kids, love-able pets, amazing projects and funny moments. Stylize them to your liking… and then post them for friends,
creepy stalker bloggers like me and family to see!
