Project 52 Week 1: The beginning of 2013

Project 52: Week 1

So I have decided to start a project 52. What is a project 52? I recently had someone explain it to me that a Project 52 is a way to capture your year one week at a time in glimpses through photo. This is my first try at it so I'm feeling a bit iffy about doing it but I thought of it as a good opportunity to try something new. Plus it will be a challenge to see if I can finish a year. There are many versions on how to do this that range from a craft challenge a week to goals in steps and more but mine is going to be my week in review for a year. There are no rules so this works best for me.

So here it goes:
For this first week We rang in a new Year.. Happy 2013! My sister turned 22 on New years (pictured on the bottom the lucky New Years Baby). Its been so cold in SA so we havent left the house all week, we have been getting comfy with our pillows and blankets instead. Luckily I had some fun come to me when I got in the mail some awesome things I won in 2 different giveaways. I won some books for munchkin and lots of paint supplies for us to create some art. Looks like we will be painting up a storm soon!

Please let me know if you have done a Project 52, any tips would be greatly appreciated. If you are currently starting one as well and want to link up then let me know!

  4. I am so apprehensive to start these - I have committment issues :) But I like the idea. Maybe I should do a monthly one?

    It is a super cool idea though.
