Ready, set...

My camera battery is charged, my notebook is ready, and I am getting excited about starting to document my week bright + early tomorrow morning.


A couple things to note as we get started:


1. Flickr Group : I started a Flickr group for anyone who is interested to share their photos + then your resulting projects over the next couple of weeks. You can find the group here: Document A Week In The Life


2. Over the course of the week I will be posting ideas/thoughts/etc about putting the album together along with samples of the photos I have taken each day. It's possible (and likely) that I will have more than one post each day.


Thanks for all the enthusiasm! I am excited to see so many people interested in this project.

    Thanks Ali! I'm not a scrapbooker but am really looking forward to this project. I've got my camera ready and anticipate my first photo around 5:42 when the first kiddo wanders in to snuggle. :)

    I have not been a great scrapbooker lately but I think I can handle this one. I love mini albums and I think that is what I will do with this.
    Thanks Ali.

    I am so excited! I started today so that I could do a calendar week. My friends thought I was a little strange a few times, but it was fun anyway!

    Hi Ali,
    A quick idea for a project like this. I've just finished doing a similar project for the month of September. Every day I got everyone in my family to tell me the three best and one worst things about their day and included them on each day's page. It is a really lovely record. I especially love the different takes we each have on the same events. It is also a great way for finding out what is going on in kids' heads. Thanks as always for sharing your wonderful work.
    cheers

    Okay - I tried the 365 day project and lasted 10 days (pathetic, I know). I'm going to give your week project a try. I have the camera, the journal, and envelopes to hold the "stuff." I have a crazy week ahead of me and my biggest obstacle will be to try and slow down long enough to snap the pictures!! Wish me luck!

    I started today, and I have my twin sis playing along too :) I probably took about 50 pictures! I'm off to write in my journal and gear up for tomorrow! I can't wait to read the ideas of how to put it together.
