the start of something wonderful…

I’ve been wanting to blog. After a few initial posts, it seems I’ve kept waiting for the perfect thing to write about, or when I finally get everything on my page perfect then I’ll start. It doesn’t have to be perfect right at the start, but you’ve got to begin somewhere. So here’s to my work in progress :) as well as adapting that motto for my life. I need to stop waiting for the perfect time. Instead I need to little by little start working on the things I want to accomplish.

I wanted to start this blog as a project for me to focus on my life, all the big and small things, and a way to document the journey :) I’ve got a few projects I wanted to start and a lot of ideas floating around in my head and can’t wait to try them and get back to the fun silly crazy driven Samdann that I am!
project one.
Simplified scrapbooking. Which is exactly what I need, due to my tendency to get overwhelmed when presented with a million little options. This one takes the guess work out & allows you to focus on ‘cultivating a good life‘ as she says. I’m excited that out of all the projects I debated on doing or trying to figure out which one was what I was looking for I knew this one was perfect when I saw it :). If you’re not familiar with it, should definitely check it out!
Mine will include one spread for every week for a year. A little scared at the semi large commitment I am making… But I [adore] the basis of the project. Capturing the little moments in life, focusing on the small things that ultimately make up your days from:
❤ random pictures
❤ things i did
❤ quotes that rocked my world
❤ what song i’m obsessed with
❤ fun places i went
❤ the weather that week
❤ things i bought
and that goes on and on i’m sure. Yesterday I finished up the title page for it so I can be all ready to start this weeks spread! It’s my first scrapbooking experience & my first time using Photoshop Elements. So this will be an interesting & fun project to say the least!

project two.
I have always seen people do these and it’s such an interesting look into your life, randomness and all. Not sure why I never have yet, but with the onset of ProjectLife I figured it was a great compliment. So here goes! I will finally participate in PHOTO A DAY APRIL!
Excited to start these projects & post all of the progress!
