So here's the scoop!
I'm sure a bunch of you are already familiar with Becky and her Project Life mission to "cultivate a good life & record it." If not though, I will LOVE to be the first to tell you. Project Life is a fun and easy system for housing treasured pictures, thoughts, memories, and life's important details, without the time, fuss, expense and gewgaw of a traditional scrapbooking approach. Of course, you can add as much gewgaw as you like.
Basically, you get a Project Life album, along with some thoughtfully-laid-out plastic sleeves (lots of configurations available) and a kit of double-sided cards to slip into those sleeves along with your photos. You can use the cards to track details and stories relating to your photos or just use the decorated sides of the cards to add personality to your album—or as placeholders till you are ready to write the details down. There are paper packs and plastic month dividers too.
Here's the idea...
I have kept journals since I was ten years old. I know first-hand the benefits of keeping a personal record. You recognize your blessings better, you appreciate your day more, time doesn't seem so fleeting, and on top of that, you are left with a treasure for your loved ones to prize for generations.
Project Life makes all of these life-keeping benefits easy to access.
So, on top of my thrill in curating the new Olive collection for Becky, like the founder of The Hair Club for Men said in his commercial, "I'm also a customer."
The Project Life Olive Edition by Heather Bailey will be available to purchase in November through Amazon.com. There are swarms of PL fans waiting for each new edition to be available, so if you are interested, follow Becky's blog for updates and be prepared to shop the day the collection goes live.
So, go have a look at Becky's announcement post. She has way more preview photos posted over there than I do. Leave a comment. And read up on how Project Life works. There's even a cute little cartoon you can watch on her home page.
(Fabric-folk, you realize these images sneaky-preview some new designs for you too, right?)
