It is to start with but once you get into the routine of it, it just flows. Looking good so far :)

I too am intimidated, so I have not taken the plunge yet. I'm starting with some smaller year long projects. Good luck!

Awesome, Stephanie!

Are you starting at February or going back to January? Just wondering what I should do, since I haven't put glue to paper yet. :P

Yeah. Can't wait to see what you do with yours Stephanie!

I started mine and love it so far. Easy peasy. I am doing 2 pages of each of the boys per month. Not too hard. If i feel like more, I will do more. I am pretty excited about it. It is a way for me to document things without creating ART. although, I do like what I have done so far. :)

Wow - is that creating pages for each day or month? The colours and cameo looks great! :)

Hey Alissa – I'm actually starting now, I'm not hemming myself into doing so much per month or week, I just want to work on something all year long, so I won't go back and do January. The less pressure I put on myself, the more realistic it will be for this project to actually get finished ;)

Looks great!

I've been intimidated too, I usually crash and burn on long-term projects after a couple of months, but I hope to turn my weekly 'right now' blog posts into some sort of project that documents the year.

I've been increasingly interested in the idea of Project Life, but intimidated by the process of actually doing it. I like Ali E's idea of having the album out on the counter so it's part of her daily life, but don't want a 12x12 album taking up my counter space. So I think I'm going to wait for the Simple Stories 6x8 albums and start then. Any word on a release date Emily?

This is going to be my approach too. Kind of a monthly at a glance. I know i cannot commit to daily. I am thinking though there my be an artsy approach to it. We will see! Did you all purchase the stuff from BH?

lydia, the 6x8 SS albums are perfect, they were hoping people would see them as a project life vehicle. i'll ask and find out when they are releasing them and get back to you ASAP!

steph, your things look great!

Cool Stephanie! Love the glimpse of what you've got going on there with yours. I'm not doing it, I think initially I was intimidated by it but now that I'm seeing so many variations of it done I think I could swing it.
