2017 – Project 52

A few of my favorite pictures from my 2017 Project 52 (I started it as a 365 project [one picture a day] but I’ve already missed some days and instead feeling guilty I just switched to a Project 52 [one picture every week]) – I just sent January and February to be printed so I’ll be sticking them in my album soon!

52 Project – 2015 [weeks 35-52]

I did it!  I finally finished my Project 52 album for 2015! [you can check out other of my Project 52 posts here.]  I’ve already flipped through the pages several times and I love it so much!  I have a lot of leftover cards from my core kit but I can’t decide how I’ll use them.  I’m working on a Project 365 this year (I know!  I’m crazy!) so I’ll probably make another album for those pictures! I really want to continue improving my skills and it doesn’t hurt that Peyton and Indie are so easy to photograph everyday!

52 PROJECT 2015 [WEEKS 28-34]

Sharing weeks 28-34 of my 52 Project album.  It has been really difficult to pick just ONE picture most weeks so you’ll see that I’ve picked 2 pictures and didn’t use a card from the project life set or I decided to use a whole spread for the week so I could include more pictures plus use journaling cards.

weeks 28 & 29

52 Project 2015 [weeks 9-14]

I’m sharing weeks 9-4 (the end of February and March) of my 52 Project for 2015.

Let’s jump back to my page for our gender reveal at 20 weeks in January.  I previously had a post-it note to remind myself that I wanted to add our gender reveal picture.  I remembered to print it with this last round of pictures so I added it to my album.  I kept it simple because the picture says it all!

So here are my spreads for weeks 9 through 14:

Week 9 – my 25-week baby bump with Indie laying on my feet.

52 Project 2015 [weeks 5-8]

(If you’d like to catch up, you can read about how I decided to complete my project here, and you can check out weeks 1-4 here)

^gender reveal & week 5

I decided to add our gender reveal picture into my 52 Project for 2015 because it’s such a big part of the year, and our lives!  You can see on the left side above that I have a post-it note to remind me what picture goes there.  I’ll have to print it with my next round of pictures.  The right side is week 5 – the week Indie got a new bed!

52 Project - 2015

^week 8

I’m realizing two things as I pull from the pictures I take each week: 1. there are SO many of Indie right now and 2. I take very similar pictures every week.  I really want to start thinking more creatively as I take pictures.  Is there a way to train my brain to think creatively?!

Until next time — Cindy
