Project 365

So, one of the things I'd like to do this year is to improve my photography. I decided to sign up for a Project 365 class to help. I figured if I have to take pictures, I might as well take good ones! I'm doing Nicole Samuels' class at Studio Calico and am really enjoying it. The best part is a message board where people have been sharing ideas. One thing that I learned about is Shuttercal.com It's a place where you can upload photos and they display them in this cute calendar. I'm not exactly sure what I'll do with my pictures at the end of the year, but there are lots of fun options available.

Here are a couple of my favorites from this week.



We rang in the New Year in Philly with the family. It was so much fun!!



I started my nutritional cleanse! Five days out, I feel so much better already and am fitting back into my jeans. :)



This is Ryan and his best little bud hanging out after school and drinking hot chocolate.

It's been fun trying to think of pictures that showcase our daily lives. If you know of any great Projedt 365 links, I'd love to see them!

I have a couple of my Crate GDT projects that I hadn't posted, so I figured I'd share them today.

This is a fun card I made using the Random collection.




As you know, I'm a sucker for pinwheels, but their trims and stickers are so much fun, too!

And here is a mini album that I made. Every year, my SIL Patty and I take Ryan to Linvilla Orchards. Her son Michael has joined us the past couple of years. We always have a great time. I used the Farmhouse collection on here.















I've been making more minis lately and I have to say I'm really enjoying it! Just not sure what to do with them when I'm done...

Well, thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

I love your photos! I also set myself a goal to take at least a photo a day, but to be honest I often end up asking myself what to take a photo of around 10 minutes to noon;) Ah well...

Your Crate creations are absolutely gorgeous! I really love that mini!

Great idea to document each day. Love the card and mini album. The albums make wonderful keepsakes.

Ooh, gosh, I just LOVE that mini album, Anabelle! And what a pretty card, too! And how fun that you are doing project 365. I tried it one year, but I have such a hard time sticking to things like that. :)
