Project 365 Options & Week 51

Thanks for all the great feedback on Project 365! I am still deciding on how I want to continue doing it, and will let you know when I come to a decision. In the meantime, I had some requests to share some of the ideas I've seen for doing Project 365.

There are a variety of ways to do it, and so you just need to decide what your purpose/goal is in doing it. I knew I wanted to print mine as a book, so a collage of each week rather than individual pictures seemed to be best. Also, I did this strictly for my own record keeping. I didn't upload to any of the Project 365 forums or link-ups, but I know there are a lot of great ones out there if you want to interact more with other P365ers.

--The template I used this year is a Photoshop template that is a free download from the Coffee Shop Blog, and can be found here. She actually has tons of free Photoshop templates. The one I used was not designed to be a P365 template, but it works perfectly for it.

--One of my favorite digital scrap designers, HayNay, just came out with some fun Project 365 stuff. You can see it here.

--I know not everyone has Photoshop, so another option would be to use Picnik or Picasa to make your collages.

--Sarah at Naptime Momtog is hosting Project 366 Rewind, which includes weekly prompts. You can read more about it here

--There are also quite a few Photoshop templates sold at Jessica Sprague.

Now for week 51...WOW! I really can't believe I've made it this far.
December 17 - My parents came to visit for the weekend and we did a little shopping. Manny absolutely loves my dad and always wants him to hold him as soon as he sees sweet! :)
December 18 - Manny has been quite the help with Christmas decorating this year. He likes to randomly put his books or toys in the tree. I was walking by and noticed this book tucked in the branches and it just made me laugh.
December 19 - Patrick & Manny love to wrestle and play when Patrick gets home from work. Patrick got kind of tired after playing for a bit, so was just laying there but Manny wanted him to keep playing. So he started trying to pull him up by the hair...such a tough little guy!!
December 20 - I was doing the dishes when I heard Manny in the hall saying "choo choo!" I walked around the corner to see he'd found where I was keeping his Christmas presents! Guess I need to do a better job of hiding those next year.
December 21 - I was getting ready, and walked in to find Manny climbing to the very top of the toilet. He is SUCH a climber right now!
December 22 - Today was Manny's last day of MDO before Christmas break, and they had a pj party to celebrate. I love him in these pj's!
December 23 - Manny absolutely loved my mother-in-law's village, and wanted to play in it the whole time we were there...even though it definitely was not something good for him to be playing with. :)


  1. These are really great pictures! I wish I would have done this with my daughter. She is 10 months old now and I can't believe how fast she changes. This is a great idea =) ~Andrea @ Life in Dawleywood

    Hope you guys had a very merry Christmas

  3. Cute pics! My nephew is 30 mos. & my brother told me the other night he found the dog's bone in the tree & he caught Logan trying to put his sippy cup in it. Those little boys are so funny!
