As promised, I documented my first day experimenting with Project Life. It was one of the most creative, fun and relaxing (yes, relaxing) thing I’ve done for myself in a long time. And who would have guessed I’m learning things about myself in the process of diving head long into uncharted waters? I guess putting it that way, it would go to figure. Anything new, different and out of the ordinary usually does teach us a thing or two about ourselves.
I appreciate all of your kind comments and encouragement on my first Project Life video post. I’m excited knowing so many of you are doing something like Project Life for yourselves and/or are willing to give it a try with me. I know I keep saying it but I think it’s going to make for an amazing, important and transformative part of remembering and embracing my creative joy.
How is your Project Life process coming along?

It is such a treat to be able to announce my next photo-centric e-class at Big Picture Classes, Picture Everyday: Finding and Photographing the Magic in your Daily Life. Although this class is brand new, with all new content (including video, photo prompts, teacher interaction and community activity) it’s bringing lots of what I love together into one class. It’s Picture Series class #9 (9!?! Can you believe that?) and it’s the next chapter, so to speak, in my book Elevate the Everyday as the content is inspired from the book. It’s also a kick off of something totally new for me; Project Life. Yes, I have decided to get crafty again (it’s been far too long) and try my hand at this revolutionary approach to scrapbooking. I’m seriously giddy about it! Just to recap; the majority of the class will be guided photo prompts for participants to shoot and the very last week of class will be a kick off of my Project Life inauguration as we put all the images we capture over our weeks together, into Project Life pages.
I do hope you choose to join me as we Picture Everyday together, starting Sept 12th. Wheeeeeee!!
There may be no greater gift than to be able to use our cameras to document and reflect back a moment, a feeling, or memory for the people we love most in the world. As for this Story, I get chills every time I play it because I am taken right back to the magical weekend we spent together celebrating love, babies and our sisterhood.
Just in time for Mother’s Day I got to share some of my thoughts and feelings about what I consider one of the most important pictures in your family’s photo collection.This one is for all the moms out there! To see what that picture is and/or if you need a little encouragement, take a peek at my segment on Studio 5 on the topic.
For the record, I had the BEST time with the folks at Studio 5. Thoughtful, gracious, encouraging, this team of people is top notch! Thank you ALL for having me. It was a pleasure and an honor.
And if that wasn’t enough, I got to visit the most charming bookshop ever where I met some wonderful women and talked about motherhood, photography and creativity. Thank you to everyone at The King’s English bookshop for hosting and to all of the ladies that came to say hi, you’re the best. If you missed me there but live in the beautiful area surrounding the shop, they’ve got some signed copies of Elevate the Everyday if you’re looking for a copy. I can’t think of a better Mother’s Day gift to give a mother, if I do say so myself (I can say that, can’t I?).
