Project 365-Week 1

My most favorite scrapbook mag http://www.creatingkeepsakes.com/ had this great idea for a year long project-take a picture a day. What a way to truly document your life! They also have a great kit to scrapbook these pics, but it is currently sold out...you can visit the creator's blog, http://www.beckyhiggins.com/ to see more about the idea. So here is the start of my Project 365.

Thursday, Jan 1st
We awoke to the New Year with a new mess! We celebrated the night before (around 10pm, you know, when New York celebrates...) with a couple of streamer-popper-things. The girls loved them and begged me not to clean up until the morning so they could play in them again!
Friday, Jan 2nd
Ah, the organizing of Christmas toys has begun. I was finally able to get shelves for the kids' playroom closet (aka, the front room coat closet).
Saturday, Jan 3rd
And yes, FINALLY, we purchased a shelving unit for the workroom (aka, the junk/dump room). I installed the hang track myself, although I should not have been so stubborn and should have let Joey help me. It seemed easy enough, but securing it too the wall was very awkward...but it's up and I LOVE it! I can finally get my scrapbook stuff put up and hopefully this will aid me in my January goal of cleaning out and organizing this room. I only wish I could have painted the room beforehand....

That is a great idea! I am LOVING your kid's toy closet organization and your scrapbooking stuff! Someday I hope to have a place to have my scrapbook stuff out instead of tucked away in a closet that I have to pull out everytime I want to do anything :) Keep the pics coming!

Oh my gosh, you are WAY too organized. I am so in need of your assisstance. Yes, keep posting pictures like that. Maybe I will get inspired.

That is very neat! I probably would never to remember to take a picture every day, but I love all the organizing! I love to organize. I wish I was more organized, but I have to say, I don't get a lot of help with that kind of thing. That is one of my goals this year too...get more organized, but I think I will always feel that way!
