Some project life thoughts..

I was just shuffling through my external hard disk (after a scare that it died on me) when it dawned on me that project life has had a greater impact on me than I've realized.

All my photos prior to 2012 have been organized by events. Birthdays, holidays, trips to the zoo, national day parades and so on.

Those small little things that happened everyday would be grouped under a 'random' folder based on who the photos were taken with, like 'random with xxx', 'random with the girls' etc. There really weren't enough everyday photos to justify having monthly folders with photos that didn't belong to events.

And herein lies the biggest difference of 2012. Even if I tried, I don't think I would be able to group them into events.

I've taken a total of 1,512 photos for 2012, (bearing in mind it's only April, well the end of April but still) and the only 3 significant events were my 2 holidays overseas (which accounted for about 200 photos in total) and CNY (maybe another 80 photos or so). That would make more than 1,200 photos taken of those everyday little things that happened. Wow.

Even though I'm not current with my project life (haven't done weeks 9 - 12, 16 & 17, must catch up!!), I'm still loving the little nagging voice at the back of my mind reminding me to take photos of those little everyday thing, because looking back at the photos I've taken is like watching a video (albeit a choppy and scattered one since I'm really not all that diligent at taking photos) of the first 4 months of this year, and realizing that I have a ton of things to be grateful for, like my awesome husband, wonderful friends, great colleagues, and of course my supercalifraglistic family! :))

Ok enough words, I'll be back really soon this week with another post on my project life weeks 13, 14 & 15, a card that I made, and a really simple project kit-ish thing I helped my mum put together for her Sunday school's arts & crafts! :)
