Project 365

First of all...a big thank you to all twenty-four of you who posted a comment on my "one little word" concept.  I really enjoyed reading all of your responses.  

It's now time to post something fun and exciting.....scrapbooking!  Okay...maybe not fun and exciting to you, but to me it's almost what consumes me daily.  I dream of scrapbooking...What else could I stand to do for fifteen straight hours???  Anyway, I mention that one of my New Year's resolutions was to start on Project 365....well, I had no idea that there would be such a demand for this kit.  Creating Keepsakes did not implement selling this kit well.  Their website crashed and they didn't make enough, so many scrappers (like myself) are left without one.  I did notice that some who did get a kit are now re-selling them on eBay for three times the amount. Ugh!  Am I bitter?  Yes, but I do know that I will get one eventually, even if it's mid-June.  That will be one happy day when it does arrive!  

Here are my first five days of Project 365:

Monday, Dec. 29th - I am going to do a Monday-Sunday layout.  So, this was my first day of my project.  Madison had Aleni Stoakes over for a playdate.  The girls played with their American Girl dolls and they had loads of fun!  
Tuesday, December 30th - Grant is getting lots of mileage out of his new Thomas the Train set that Santa brought him.  We don't hardly put it away since it's a nightly thing...just dump it into the blue tote and it's out on the floor again in no time.  
Wednesday, Dec. 31st - Madison and neighbor friend, Jessi, playing on the Nintendo Wii.  I did want a picture of Andy and me (New Year's Eve tradition), but one of the kids took it and it's blurry!  Oh, well!  
Thursday, Jan. 1st - Tyler watching the Gator Bowl.  If we didn't win, I don't think I could have posted this one.  What a great game!  
Friday, Jan. 2nd - Madison and Jessi decided to get out the Easy-Bake oven that hasn't been used in over two years.  The girls made cookies from an old mix that we wondered if it would turn out...apparently it did.  They ate them and were probably better than the sugar cookies I made for Christmas.

Looks like you are off to a great start with your project 365. I don't think I'm going to tackle that one this year- but I am anxious to see how everyone does it! This year I need to focus on scrapbooking on a regular basis, instead of only 3 or 4 times a year like I have been.

Grant looks so cute in that picture. I am not sure I have ever seen him sitting!

Jim is happy to see that you are working with trains at such a young age. Good job!
