January Project Life Page

Last January I started a Project Life type monthly scrapbook page. It seemed like it might be a good way to keep an account of what we did all year, and it would make writing my annual Christmas letter a breeze. It was really fun and quite easy to do. The pages have four 4 X 6 pockets and four 3 X 4 pockets, so all that has to be done is to slip the items in the pocket. I keep a calendar with all my appointments and activities written down.....I don't have the best memory. When I'm in the mood I type the month's highlights in a 4 X 6 size and I print it at the end of the month. A few photos/mementos are added and I call it a scrapbook page. Yes, I actually did finish 2014. I did an 8-1/2 X 11 page write up about my breast cancer and I will do another one about the surgery and radiation.

As you can see January was pretty ordinary. 
It feels good to work on my scrapbooks again. 

This afternoon I went to the local senior center to scrapbook for a while. I wasn't sure if I wanted to go because it's scheduled from 1 -3.....two hours isn't much time when you're scrapbooking. BUT I found a scrapbook that I was working on in January and was incomplete, everything was organized and ready to I packed up a few things and went to the senior center. I finished four pages so I did accomplish something. They have the 'class' twice a month and hopefully I can make all of the dates.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my page.
I'll be back soon!


  1. That is a really great idea, Linda. It's a perfect way to journal. What a year you have had. I hope there is a lot of joy in the book to wash away some of the pain of what you went through. xo Diana

  2. I love it! I have been wanting to try the Project Life method. It seems so easy. I'm afraid I would invest a ton of money and then not follow through though. We'll see...:) I will enjoy yours while I decide...:) Have a wonderful week!

  3. Oh Scrapbooking is till 4:30! Tammy just might put the stuff away sooner. I have to get at mine!
