The premise of the project is that you select a theme and post a photo every week (plus small description) for the full 52 weeks of the year. Shawna, the author of Styleberry Blog, did her 2011 Project 52 on the theme of motherhood. She's a professional photographer so her images are really beautiful. In fact, she's going to put all of her images together to create a coffee table book. I think that's a fabulous idea and I definitely would love to do that as well!
For my Project 52, I've chosen the theme "makes me happy." It's so easy to get ahead of yourself and overlook the things that make you happy right in front of you in the moment. This project will give me a gentle reminder of all the things that are worth being thankful for right now, both small and large. I tend to hang on to the past and be in a rush for the future, but this year, I want to focus on being present! I think my project will be a great tool to help me achieve better balance and will be a fun collection to mark 2012.
So since this is the official first week of 2012, here's my first official installment of my Project 52 (I'm hoping my photography skills improve with time and practice). Hope you like it (also, check out Styleberry Blog's 2012 Project 52)!
