Day 3 and i’m already overwhelmed

I’m already feeling overwhelmed with this project.  Not by posting a picture everyday but just with what I should be photographing and posting.  Is this to help me remember every day of 2012?  Or is this to showcase my non-existent photography skills?  And why am I not doing this on my regular blog?  I can’t even finish up Christmas on my family blog but have decided to start a different blog.  I’m tempted to just abandon the old blog and start anew.  I like starting fresh.  Just like the new year.  I’m not giving up yet.  Still just trying to find my purpose.

Photo for today . . . One of my favorite things about Christmas.  Getting the mail and displaying my family and friends beautiful faces on my kitchen cupboards.  They’re all coming down tomorrow to be stored in my ornament box.  I like to look at all of them one more time when decorating my tree the next year.  I also found this great idea on Pinterest.  Take a picture of each Christmas card picture with your phone and import your friend’s cute picture into their contact info.  I love this!  I wish I got more phone calls and not just texts so I could see all of these cute faces all year.

P.S.  Ignore the fingerprints all over the microwave and fridge.  I have six kids.  And I’m really busy blogging and not cleaning.

  1. I'm thinking more like a picturebook of our year, with little words. Like a photo coffee table book. My blog usually has a billion random pictures and words. I *think* I want the 365 blog to just be a snapshot of the year, not the details of it. We'll see. Plus it will be a place for my tester shots playing around with the camera and photoshop :)

  2. It makes your whole kitchen look so festive on the cabinets like that!

  3. don't be overwhelmed! what i envision is just posting a picture that will tell the story of our days. i want to put each one in a photo book at the end of the year to document it. nothing to stress about, just a picture that would depict some part of your life each day!

  4. 1. your kitchen looks amazing!
    2. o, please hang in there. if for no other reason than so i can see the rest of this kitchen...fingerprints and all!! :)
