Project 365, Ideas

I'm sitting here relieved that we once again have enough money to pay our monthly bills. Does anyone else stress about that??? We were SO poor when we got married that I got very good as robbing Peter to pay Paul. Now we always have enough money, but I still get stressed!

Oh, I digressed. Now that I'm elated that I'm done paying bills for the month, I remembered the cool kit that got me all inspired for Project 365 again this year despite my dismal failure last year. I also remembered that Creating Keepsakes came up with a list of 365 pictures you could take this year. I was so motivated by the list of ideas. After 35 successful pictures, I'm running short on ideas. How many time do you want to see my kid? So anyway, I searched around and found the list. I wanted to share it with you in case you were beginning to run low on P365 ideas.

365 Days, 365 Ideas for Photos

Let me know if you find that helpful. I've noticed that my photos are not quite as artistic as some of PADers. At first I was intimiated by that. I decided that my approach is just fine. I'm doing this to document a year in our lives, so I want my pictures to reflect US. I hope by taking a picture a day, I become a better photographer. But my goal for the year is to document who we are. What we do. Our lives together.

Thanks for sharing this list. I'm printing it out right now. And by the way, I'm enjoying your pictures and think they're beautiful. Just rest in who you are and your style - it's what makes you special. And yes, I, too, get caught up in that whole comparison thing but am realizing it steals my joy. So instead, I'm trying to learn to simply be content with the me God created me to be. And truly be okay with that!

I just printed out that list - great inspiration for days whent he well of cretivity runs dry! I really like your approach to the project...a glimpse into your daily lives. So many memories at the end of the year.

We're doing a lot of robbing Peter to pay Paul these days. I think we're tighter right now than ever before.

Thanks for the comment, and for sharing this list! And despite all of our worrying about paying those bills on time, I appreciate your word of 2009. :)

The project is supposed to be fun and personal, right?? I think your approach is the best one for you. I bet you will grow by leaps and bounds this year. Good luck and have FUN with it! :)

Oh Natalie, I can so relate. We live paycheck to paycheck too, but somehow God always provides. :)

I think that the project means different things for different people, and I like your 'style' just fine. :)

Thanks for posting a link to that! It took me a while to find it with a Google search and finally came across your blog.
