A peek at Project Life.

Happy Friday! Want to see my scrapbooking desk? Be prepared because I am not a clean scrapbooker. For me, creativity = big huge mess. But it's all good. The messier my desk is, the more creative I am. 

I mentioned a few post back that wanted to do project life. Well, I really wasn't feeling the standard way and set out to find a way that would suit my style, but I wasn't having much luck. I tried my own version with divided page protectors but it took too much planning for something that was supposed to be fun.  When it comes to scrapbooking, I AM NOT A PLANNER. I just like to throw caution to the wind and do whatever feels right in the moment. Thinking and planning, ruins my creativity so the "traditional" Project Life was out.

When I was browsing the clearance end caps, at Target the other day I found this (and a coupon holder for another project!):

Looks like a plain old notebook, huh? Nope. It's a yearly planner with a calendar for each month and tons places for writing, stamping, pictures, and just being creative. When I saw it I knew exactly what I was going to use it for. My 'smash' version of Project Life.  It seemed as though it was made for a scrapbooker…or a really busy person. Here's what I have so far.

It's funny, how I'm using a planner, while not being a planner at all. I don't even have a calendar in my house.  Even so, I think I've found the perfect solution for my own version of Project Life.  Now I  actually can't wait to dive in an document my [boring, uneventful] Life.
