    Hi Ali,
    I have never done anything like this before, but was thinking about doing something similar. I am so glad I stumbled on this. I don't have a fancy camera and am not really a good photo person. But I would like to give it a shot. I guess it doesn't start til April. I finally understood that this is something you've done in the past and the links were from that time. Thanks for sharing.

    considering ... considering ...
    want to see if it fits in without interfering my other creative priorities. Still, it IS only one week and if I can get it DONE within that week, then it shouldn't interfere.
    ... just stream-of-conciousness-thinking there.

    I was wondering the same thing. Would it work to run a stitch vertically down each of the 4x6 spots on a 12x12 divided page protectors. Or use a 4x6 background paper but attach 2 elements to it as if it were divided???

    How would this work as a travel album? Im going on a cruise in May for 21 days (so it would be 3 weeks in the life, so to speak) to Dubai, Oman, Jordan and Egypt. I thought this format might be an interesting way to document the trip.

    i do not think you need a good camera. I took all of my vacation photos on my IPhone. It did great for lots of things. YOU have to think about what is interesting, ordinary, everyday. Just start taking the pictures.

    I am taking some classes during the same time. But I am reading up and looking at examples of past years and am taking a ton of photos this week.

    I think it would be great! Those pocket pages are so great for collecting bits of this and that along the way. Sounds like an awesome adventure.

    I have never participated before but after just finishing Jeffrey Yamaguchi "52 Weeks of Random Acts of Creativity" I feel an strong urge to take everyday photos. Starting to think about the the baseball card dividers...

    Hi Ali,
    After more than 3 years of not scrapbooking the December Daily 2009 got me scrapping again although not like before. I'm planning to do the "week in the life" also. I've been working on Dutch "overlays" and the album will be very simple and clean so that when the week comes I only have to take pictures and make notes and not have to think about how I'll have to scrap every day in a new and original way.
    Every day will have to same setup much like your setup but in Dutch and a little different.
    Thank you for the inspiration!

    Wow! It sounds great! I'm looking forward to trying this challenge! It's going to be nice to exchange differente types of weeks, mainly because I live in Rio de Janeiro city/Brazil! Just a question: Is is a class and are there any fees? See you all!

    I am so excited. My mom just said she would do this as a "Grandma" album for the kids. We will both do the same week, which includes her Bday. So we will have one day together that we can both document... how different will it be? Can't wait to see.

    Hello Ali,
    I am VERY new to photography as well as scrapbooking. However, I love love taking pictures, and recording them on my blog so I knew that digital scrapbooking would be a wonderful next step. Can I do a week in the life with you next week digitally only. I do not see how I would have the time to do a paper scrapbook. If so, what supplies would you recommend I get. I have been practicing with your mini class. (Thank you so much by the way).

    I did your first "Week in the life Project" and loved it. It made for some really creative pictures. I'm excited about this project. Can't wait to see what happens this go around.

    I can't wait to participate in this project. What would make it even better would to be to win the Big Giveaway. I also think that for me, just recognizing what I do from day to day is significant...and when I had younger children....I realize now was even more. I now know that I didn't give myself much credit for being a working mom and also a wife, mother, teacher, house cleaner and cook (and the list goes on). Thank you for making me really look at myself and who I am. It has been gratifying in many ways.
