I got an email to attend a Scrapbooking Weekend, and even though I’m a novice scrapbooker, I didn’t want to pass up an opportunity to spend a full day with a friend, so I was so happy when I was able to arrange it so that I could attend one of the sessions.
I started thinking about what I would do during my scrapbooking time. I had an idea to set up a scrapbook entitled: My Fiftieth Year. Kick it off with birthday month and then make a 2 page spread for each month (if there are that many in the book?) and record how I spend the year (so I start off ahead instead of behind!).
I was inspired by two things:
- My local library’s recent workshop that I attended to create a vision board.
- Meg’s scrapbook pages she calls Project Life on her “Our Misadventures” blog. Hmmm…maybe I should call mine Project MidLife? 🙂
I’m on the fence now about whether I should do “2012” and have it span January through December, or start in in May and have it span May 2012 to April 2013. I am also wondering about whether I should have themes that correspond with the month (for example, Christmas for December) or themes corresponding to my interests (food! writing! books!)…maybe, somehow, both?
What do you think?

I like the idea of May 2012–April 2013 focusing on your interests….sounds like a fun project! Good Luck!
Thanks, Kristen. That’s the way I’m leaning at the moment. It gives me a little more time to get it ready too!
Hehe! Love the sound of that!!!! I hope you have fun with the new project! I’ve fallen behind – we’ve had the flu running through our homestead :-\
The credit can’t go to me for Project Life though, it’s actually a whole line of both paper and digital scrapbooking products by Becky Higgins:
The concept is to record life without getting caught up in being the best scrapper – and this is accomplished with Becky’s different pocket pages. I use her digital templates, since I can’t stand paper scrapping… too much mess!
Meg: Oh! I hope you are all well and back on your feet soon! I’ve been wondering about digital scrapbooking. Thanks for the tip and i’ll check out that link to Becky’s blog. Thanks again,
