Our Life 2011

I have been looking enviously at other's completed albums of Project Life, 365, A Photo a Day etc. and after giving up trying to get one over here (price being the main factor) I decided to take the plunge and do an album myself. This might (have no idea for certain!) be our last year here in Malaysia so I thought it would be neat to look back on a photo record of our everyday living for a year. I have ordered an album (12x12 ring bound in red of course!) and an assortment of page protectors as follows ...
9 4x4 pockets
6 6x4 pockets
8 3x3 pockets and 1 6x12 pocket
3 6x4 pockets (mainly for extra pics if I really can't stick to ONE photo a day heheee)

I also plan to include receipts, maps, school notices & timetables, etc. etc. You know, the everyday stuff. I am going to pick up my album and pages on Saturday, in the mean time I am being good at putting photos into folders ready for printing and keeping receipts etc that I want to include in a "safe" place! I hope I can actually finish this and it won't end up like my 2009 December Daily album which still isn't completed (mainly because I decided to do all of Dec and Jan in one album - I am up to Christmas Day with it!) and our holiday photos from 2009 still aren't finished either! Sigh ... Oh well ... nothing like a challenge is there! :-)
So here's a pic of my laundry pile (actually I had already done a lot the day before I took this pic!) last week. The rest of last weeks pics you have ready seen.

And starting the 2nd week ... Saturday Aaron, Samuel & I walked to the new supermarket which has just opened close to us.
Our usual Sunday lunch :-)
Aaron's first day back at school on Monday for 2011 (he's holding his new lunch box which I jazzed up with some Ben 10 stickers heheee).
I think today's photo will be of my helper who is back after her holiday :-) Yay ... so glad I got that huge pile of ironing done before she came back (otherwise I think she would have turned around and gone back home when she saw it!).
Looking forward to keeping up with it and watching it progress. Will post some pics once I have got the album and have completed the first couple of weeks.
Thanks for visiting.

Good luck with setting up your album for 2011. I'm completely hopeless when it comes to a commitment like that. I think I can probably manage it for 2 weeks max and the poor album would be put aside, and all the stuff (photos, recepts, etc) in a big box and jumbled up, waiting to be organized :P

good luck with that! For me, taking the photos is one thing. Putting them in an album is quite another!
