January's 365

I have to admit I'm horrible at doing things long-term. I always have the best of intentions, but somehow or another, things get in the way, I get lazy, blah, blah. You know all the excuses, right?! hee!

But enter 2010. It's time for a change, right? A new beginning, a new year, a new DECADE for pete's sake! So I wanted to give something a go. I had been watching folks do the Project 365 for a couple of years (where they take a photo a day, every day, during that year). That excited me! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE taking photos but will admit, when the weather is bad or things are going on, I will often leave my poor camera neglected. And that's just not what I meant to do when I got her. you know? SO...I am making the effort. Some days are easier than others. I'll admit to already missing a day and fudging a day here or there...but I still have INTENT! Whooo hooo! Go me!

It's already into February and I'm still having fun with it! So I thought I'd share a quick recap of January, 2010 with you. And for those of you that are interested, there is a link to the right that has all the pictures in their entirety so that you can see them bigger!

It's not too late for you to start either! Pick up your camera today and show me what you've got! If you decide to join Shuttercal where I've posted my pictures, let me know so I can add you as a friend and check out yours, too!

(p.s. Thanks to Ms. Emilie for sharing her cute little 365 image!)

Happy Monday, all!
xoxo,
k.

You know... I actually started doing this at the start of the new year. Then after about 2 weeks into the project, I stopped. When I looked back through my photos I realized that about 75% of them were of my cats! I couldn't bare to continue. I didn't need a year in photos documenting the fact that I had, in fact, become a crazy cat lady. :P

This is the first year I've joined in to the fun and so far I'm really glad I did. Not only am I using my camera every day but I'm actually printing pictures constantly. What a refreshing change this has been. Go me and you!!!

Ahhh...Shuttercal. I love it! But It runs hot and cold for me. I forget about my poor camera for days and weeks sometimes. Life happens when you're not taking pictures.
