Because I Like Projects | 52 Lists

Last night while the kids were watching The Incredibles I was browsing Pinterest (of course).

I came across a pin for a 52 Lists project. I clicked over to check it out and started thinking about being open (hello one little word) and about participating in someone else's project for a change and decided it sounded like something I'd be interested in playing along with in 2013.

Thanks for taking the lead Moorea.

So maybe you might be interested too? If so click on over and we can play along together. Each week on Tuesday she's planning to post a new list idea and a download. This would be a cool addition to Project Life or a One Little Word album or an About Me album. I think I'll just blog my list each week without any plans to make a scrapbook at this time. Or I might just print out the pages and scan them in for easy posting. Thoughts in progress.

I'll be playing catch up on the first few lists and sharing them soon.

    [...] Ali Edwards also shared about the site that has a 52 lists project with weekly prompts – looks intriguing and probably another one I’ll jump in on.  What about you? [...]

    I really don't think it's cool that she's just taking them straight out of someone else's book. :(

    Ummm, this is weird. I'm all about lists this year too. Was just about to do a blog posts with one of my "Thirteen" lists.

    [...] two new blogs to follow,, from my own wandering on Pinterest and the other via Ali Edwards’ perusing of Pinterest, where I found I absolutely LOVE Pinterest, but it is one of those places [...]

    Listing is one of my favorite ways to document. I hadn't heard of Moorea's version, but I'm super excited about 30 Days of Lists, which just started! It's my favorite. I'll have to look into 52 Lists as well.

    I just stumbled across this earlier today and then saw it on your blog. It looks like something that I can really get into and it will work really well with my OLW album as well... love it when things like that happen!

    I like this idea of positive lists iso to-do lists. Tried the 1st two and they were a great way of seeing myself. I also like the idea of combining it with selfportraits. I was recently inspired again by your selfportrait set on Flickr.

    Thsnks Ali...loving the simpleness of the whole project being as it is not directly decended from a scapbooking perspective. Just from that point alone there is no instant guilt to do "perfect" artwork...Thanks again...i luv ya!

    I just downloaded the lists and then happened to pop over to your blog and you did them too! It must be going viral! I'll expect to see this popping up every where soon. I'll look forward to your lists.

    So funny, I was thinking yesterday that I need to scrap more about ME and that I should make a Smashbook or something all about me, right now. This is so the perfect way of doing it! I won't be doing all 52 lists but I will do as many as I feel like and document this for my kids to have one day. And I love the idea of including a self portrait with each list!

    I'm planning on doing the 52 lists project and using 8.5" by 11" page protectors and including them into my 2013 Project Life album.
