When I hit publish on this post, I will have officially completed my Project 365 for 2012. That means I took and posted a photo from each day in 2012! It may not seem like much, but this is the first year out of the 3 attempted that I actually completed the challenge. My roadblock has always been getting the photos uploaded, but as of today, they are all done!
I love looking back on my year in pictures. I print a Keepsy book for all of my Instagram pictures, but I think for my Project 365 I’m going to do a Blurb book so that I can have the words along with the pictures in a format my whole family can enjoy.
I plan on doing Project 365 again in 2013, so stay tuned for more posts. Along with it, my friend Heather has talked me into participating in Project Life as well. It should be a fun, new way to document our life!
Thanks for joining me on the journey! With that, here is my last Project 365 post for 2012.
