A fresh start - Project 52 the 2010 edition

I will admit it, by the end of last year I was pretty fed up with P52. I felt my photos were boring and mediocre, and I didn't see how it all would come together. Then I uploaded them all to Shutterfly and saw the book slideshow. And I changed my mind. the photos might not all be big masterpieces but they represent me and my husband and our life together during the course of a year. Surprisingly many photos had a special occasion attached to them, something to be remembered.

So with that in mind I have decided to do it all over again this year. I will stick to just taking photos and then assembling them into a photo book. I will not commit to scrapping 52 layouts "just because". If I ever feel like scrapping some of them I will, but then because I want to. Not because I have to. And besides, I like the format from last year with the simple white frame on a black page. I think it looked both bold and classy at the same time.

And so, since it is the end of week #1 of 2010, here is my first photo of this year's P52.

#1, 2010
Winter has a firm grip on this part of the world with snow and temperatures in the negatives. My poor lavendar bushes are covered with snow and ice. It looks great but I just hope they will survive.

  1. Great start to P52 Linda. I think your photos are gorgeous, never boring and definately not mediocre. I loved your Shutterfly book, and you're right, it represents you and your life during the course of the year.

    I seemed to lose interest last year with my P52, and I've decided not to start one this year - though I may change my mind next week ;).

    Thanks for your love over at my blog. I think I will improve on the card front (I hope!) LOL.
