365 Week 1 - with my custom protectors

So, thanks to my friend Jen I did do the custom page protectors and this is my week 1 page. I have to admit I'm not the best at sewing... so I've got some crooked lines, but I figure by the end of the year I'll have this down pat...

I like the fact that it's all done with my own stuff... and I have to say I'm happy with how it turned out... crooked lines and all...

For those of you who just might decide to do this project, may I make a
suggestion... write down what you did either during the day... or what I did at the end of the day - - EVERY DAY... because all the those everyday days will start to look just like all the others unless you do...

Also, write down the special things... the silly things your kids say or do during the day... even it you dont' get a photo of it... you can still write about it... it's the everyday things that make this special...

I'm really enjoying this,
since I'm now a S-A-H-Mom... this is going to be a very special year for me at home with Rainee and it's a great way to document it... I'm excited!!!

Now... for those of you who maybe don't feel like you can so this because you've missed the first several days of the year... you can still do it... either for the rest of the year... or maybe for a special week... a birthday... a vacation... a special week at school... when you have a special house guest... It doesn't have to be the whole year... this can be used for whatever you want... you have to try it...

Hey Michelle:

Looks like some spammer got you in the comments above! Stinkers!

But, on to more important things .... I love this! I do the journaling daily events thing you were talking about and just crack up when I go back and see what has been said or happened! It's amazing how much you can forget! The sewing is awesome...I will be trying that! I also found Jen's blog thru you...so thanks..love it! Take care...oh and order some Nike's ok? LOL!

i LOVE this idea, i have seen it on Jencropable but i was very intimidated. Do you cut through BOTH layers of the sheet protector or one?? I guess BOTH would make sense so you can put some behind it. BUT i wanted you to know that when i got to the office, after my lunch break, i found a huge box on my desk. Thank you so much!! All the girls here were so excited to go through it with me.

This is great Michelle! I love, love, love it! Honestly... I think those of us who are making our own "365-ers" are going to be much happier. Your personal touches add so much. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful layout! I really like how you made it your own. I tend to scraplift other peoples and throw in my own touches. You have inspired me to bring out my own creative side next week.

It looks great! I like the idea of using your own stash, too and to be able to vary the look over time instead of having someone else design it--especially when you're a designer!! Way to Go!
