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.

    I LOVE this idea!! My goal is to write more this year and my OLW is Story, how perfect that this fits both my goals. I clicked over and read the prompts, great ones. Will get started on catching up today.

    Thanks Ali for sharing this and looking forward to seeing your lists.

    I am really excited about trying this. I also started the History project by Kerri Bradford, and bought a black marble notebook to put it all in. I can carry the notebook to the office, errands, on a plane or road trip, etc., and I think it will be fascinating to look back on years from now, all from my prospective.I spend so much time recording my husband and I's memories, but not alot about me, my thoughts or feelings. Thanks for the tip!
    God Bless.

    Oh my gosh, I am the queen of list-making. It's how I calm myself down, organize my brain and clean out the cobwebs. I am totally doing this! Thanks so much for sharing the idea. :)

    Oh how I love this idea. A project that is so simple and yet, I'm sure, has the potential to inspire more than we realize.

    Thanks for sharing Ali. Let the journey begin....

    I picked this up from your Twitter feed yesterday and it was love at 1st site, so I am saying YES to this project - not confining myself to have to keep up with every week, but will try to do as many as possible...looks like fun!

    Thanks so much for posting about my series <3
    Today my list prompt is about gratefulness. I have very hard news that I announced in my post today and giving myself time to write out all that I am grateful for helped calm my spirits so deeply. My family has a battle ahead, but my lists will help me along the way.
    Thank you for sharing and I hope this project can be as powerful for others as it is for me!

    I really like this idea of list (especially since I'm reading The Art of Non-Conformity (I'm not pretty sure but I think I saw this book on your blog)... and on advice is to make list of things we would like to do): these 52-lists could be nice beginning for me (even if making lists each week will be hard for me). Thanks for sharing Ali, and thanks a lot to Moorea for this nice idea.

    There is a book called Listography that you might like. Same concept and it is in a nice pretty book. :)

    I just might try this as well. Seems like a great way to celebrate me and keep focusing on where I want to go. Simple but satisfying at the same time. Might be a great addition to my OLW album.

    This looks neat! Not sure if I'll do it every week, but it would certainly make for an interesting reflection. Either in or out of Project Life, it would make a fun album to do every week, accompanied by a self-portrait. Hmm...there's an idea! =)

      Oh I love that self-portrait idea. Nice one!

    Love this idea! I'm am totally going to go for this one. I think I might make my lists in a 'Smash' book. I've been wanting to use one of those for something.

    [...] 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. :(

      Where did it say that "Sally"? Edited - Actually I see where she mentioned that the first one was from a book - and she links to the book. Not sure about the ones that follow.

    [...] two new blogs to follow, www.hernewleaf.com, from my own wandering on Pinterest and the other via Ali Edwards’ perusing of Pinterest, where I found www.moorea-seal.com. 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. http://30daysoflists.com/listers/megan/
