30 Days of Thanks: Day 6-Project Life


Let me tell you a story.
It's a story of a girl on a mission.
A girl running around her local mall with an almost dead cell phone frantically searching for just enough signal to complete a very important task.
What could be so important?
Project Life went on sale for Black Friday.

Last fall I was introduced to Project Life. I don't even know where I found it but I remember I was completely floored by how simple it was! After doing some research I decided that this was exactly what I needed to get out of my funk. I've been a scrapper for most of my teenage/adult years, but when I ran out of time to do all that I used to do I just stopped doing it all together.
Bad move, Amanda.

I missed scrapping my memories so I decided to take on this project and see what came of it.
The original purpose of Project Life is to take a photo a day, journal about it, and put it in a page protector.
Simple stuff.
I however, completely stink at taking pictures everyday, so I decided to do a monthly album instead of a daily. I used the pretty little month dividers and just added pictures and journaling and other memorabilia as I got to it. The best thing about this? I still had the freedom to do some traditional scrapbook layouts as well as add digital ones and it only made it better!

Last November when I squealed like a little girl in the middle of the Old Navy, I had no idea how much I was going to appreciate Project Life a year later. In this one album I have captured so much from one of the most hectic, crazy, exciting times in our marriage. It was all possible because it was simple, stress-free, and fun!

If you haven't checked into Project Life I HIGHLY recommend that you do. It's such a blessing to be able to document your life without stressing yourself out about it.
(and no, I did not get paid to say any of this. I'm just a sold out Project Lifer!)

If you'd like to see the first half of my 2011 Project Life album, here ya go:
oh, and ignore my nasty voice...I had a least I hope I did cause if I really sound like that I might just punch myself in the face!

I'm finishing up the second half and will be making another video at the end of the year.
Dang, is it the end of the year already?

What are you thankful for today?

I would love for you to join me on this journey of documenting all of our blessings in life. Make sure to link up below! I am LOVIN' seeing all of your fun posts!


  1. That is an awesome idea!! I clicked the link and it said "Not found" so if you could tell me the link for Project Life that would be awesome! Have a great day!

  2. Oh I've been wanting to do the Project Life...I wish I had more hours in a day!!

  3. You are doing a great job with your album! I love how you added digital pages and blogposts and so much memorabilia. I'm about to finish my second year and I've mostly stuck to the basics, but maybe I'll branch out next year. I'm almost caught up for this year and I'm looking forward to doing it again, hopefully every year from here on out. And by the way, your voice sounded great!

  4. LOVE your Project Life album ;) I ran across that recently and will definitely be doing it next year. Not sure if I will make one for this year, although so much has happened this year I am going to want to remember...hmmm.... anyways, found you at Mandy's blog, peeking in to say hello!
