My friend Karin and I did the 2009 project together and it was great having someone else emailing you their photos and it was lots of fun, a great talking point and a real feel good thing. At the beginning of the year I had a Canvas in mind to do with all the photos and knowing this I made sure all my photos were "horizontal" so that they could all fit on a grid type canvas.
In January 2010 I put the camera down for a couple of weeks but basically I was taking photos 4-5 days out of 7 before my photo a day project so it wasn't all that difficult. In 2011 I got a couple of other Mums involved and we took photos all year long however I probably missed out on a few days due to other things going on in our lives that year but on the whole I was still taking photos 4-5 days out of 7.
Fast forward to 2013 and it's back on again and I will be taking a "photo of the day" and the kids get involved in what would be a good photo and I'm using Becky Higgins Project Life "Seafoam Kit" which Elise Blaha Cripe designed.
I have also purchased mini kits for the kids to do this year and they are right into it. I got different kits for the kids so they had their own design. The kids mini albums have spaces for 80 photos so theirs is really 1 photo per week and then 30 other spots for extras like holidays etc. The kids are so getting into it and both of them picking out what photos they would like, what they would like to write and putting them together. They have full control over what they want to do with their albums. I also bought them both a coloured box from the $2 shop for them to keep their album, their coloured pens and the little Becky Higgins kits.
