One of the projects I plan to continue this year is Day In The Life™.
One single day of in-depth documentation, Day In The Life™ is an awesome opportunity to record your right now - from the time you wake up until the time your head hits the pillow. What do you do, where do you go, who do you see, what's important to you, what are you eating, what are you saying, etc?
My completed Day In The Life™ projects have come together in a variety of different ways including monthly in Project Life®(did this for about six months in 2014), in minibooks, on traditional layouts, etc. For this next one I'm planning to use pocket pages and most likely include it as an insert in my Project Life® album.
This year I'm hoping to do quarterly Day In The Life™ projects - with the first date scheduled for Tuesday, March 29th (other dates throughout the year will be announced as we get closer to them).
What I love about Day In The Life™:
- The invitation to use my "big" camera for the day. It's simply a fun photo project that encourages taking more photos than I usually do on any given day and I always end up with some photos I really love that tell the story of my life right now.
- It tells the complete story of just one day. In Project Life® I'm most often aiming for an overview of the week so I don't capture all the details of every single day (that would be way too much). Day In The Life™ gives me the chance to capture more of a single day: routines, things said, how much time I spend doing this or that, etc.
There's nothing you need to sign up for - just mark your calendar and I'll post more ideas as we get closer to the actual day in March.
Check out my archive of past Day In The Life™ documentation here. I also have a Day In The Life™ Mini Class available as well if you are interested in learning more about how I've approached this project in the past and seeing the step-by-step for a simple 4x4 album.
DAY IN THE LIFE™ MINI KIT
In addition to the 3x4 & 4x6 cards and the chipboard circles, this kit includes something that I'm super excited about - a rolling time stamp. This is a product I've wanted to find/offer/create for a very long time and I'm super excited to have it to use to document the times of day for this and other memory keeping projects:
Here's a short video overview of what's included in the Day In The Life™ Mini Kit:
We will be offering a digital version of this set with the cards + circles at the beginning of March.
WEEK IN THE LIFE™ | COMING SOON
I also want to let you know that the pre-order for the 2016 Week In The Life™ kit will be coming soon. I'll be documenting my week in May 2016. More details to come.
