Project 365 – Let’s get ready to do it together!!?? UPDATED
April 27, 2009

Ok some of you might know what the “Project 365” is but for those of you who don’t here is some information::

The 365 Project is where you take a photo a day to later but in an album. It’s a really fun way to get your creativity flowing, learn more about yourself and the best part is having a whole year of your life documented. Imagine what a GREAT photobook this would make to look back on or pass down to your lil ones?? Here is a little snippet from Taylor McKnight who started the project back in 2004.

Why do it?

Taking a photo a day is a big undertaking with big payoffs. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider doing it:

  • Imagine being able to look back at any day of your year and recall what you did, who you met, what you learnedโ€ฆ (Often we find it hard to remember what we did just yesterday or even last night, let alone a whole year ago!)
  • Your year-long photo album will be an amazing way to document your travels and accomplishments, your haircuts and relationships. Time moves surprisingly fast.
  • Taking a photo a day will make you a better photographer. Using your camera every day will help you learn its limits. You will get better at composing your shots, youโ€™ll start to care about lighting, and youโ€™ll become more creative with your photography when youโ€™re forced to come up with something new every single day.
  • I am really excited about sinking my teeth into this but i’m not going to start till i know i am ready (so in the mean time i’m going to help us get prepared for it in this thread ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) If you come across any other freebies that will help us along the journey of the “Project 365” then please please post them here… we will love you forever lol ๐Ÿ˜‰ I will be adding more to this post over the next week as its busy busy here and these project 365 goodies are a little tricky to find ๐Ÿ™‚

    Gush fest and some DigiScrap templates OR are they?? ;)
    April 7, 2009

    Well I just spent all afternoon adding tutorials to our forum and adding a new tutorial reference page so our members can easily find ALL the tutorials and resource lists on our forum in the one place. If your not a member of our forum your missing out I tell you lol ๐Ÿ˜‰ Well jokes aside… you kind of are as there is WAY more freebies and help there then you will even find on our blog… not to mention REALLY great members who are helpful and just great great people to talk to!! (if anyone is interested at the end of this plog post is a FULL list of tutorials and resources we have in our forum ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    One of the things I love about the members is they are just so easy to talk to. And the fact that we are all learning digiscrapping from all levels is fantastic… even though some are really newbies to it all no one ever feels out of place or silly asking questions… ๐Ÿ™‚ *sigh* ok enough gushing about our members lol LOVE YOU GUYS!!

    OH we currently have a challenge going where we are learning how to use templates for digiscrapping if anyone is interested? We are going to have an ongoing “technique” challenge with no deadline added infrequently from now on. This will help us learn different techniques used if digiscrapping and general photo editing starting at the basics up. Who knows we might all be pros by the end of the year lol.

    OK OK enough of all that… where the good stuff your yelling at me?? right?? lol :p The “are they” part of the post title means i got carried away as usual; and we ended up with alot more then just templates in this post lol ๐Ÿ˜€

    HERE it is!! ๐Ÿ™‚
