Project 52:1

I have been a huge fan of Shawna of styleberryBLOG for many months now. Her creative style and beautiful photography immediately drew me in, but her down-to-earth and totally relatable posts, and aspirational (but achievable!) DIY projects continually bring me back to her site. I especially love her {under $20} growth chart!

One of the first things I liked about her blog, and what made it truly unique, was her Project 52. It was such a simple, but meaningful project, and I instantly wanted to be a part of it. But I started following somewhere around week 30, and you know how I like to do things "right"... so I've anxiously been waiting for the start of the new year so I could begin a Project 52 of my own. I mean, it combines two things I love-- my family and taking photos. How could I resist?!

The goal of the project (for me) is to capture something on camera once a week that defines my "theme" and share it on my blog. At the end of the year, I'll create a book that contains each of the photos/captions and it will {hopefully} be something my family and I can treasure for years to come.

So today marks the beginning of my Project 52. Every Friday I'll be posting my photo/caption and I will link back to styleberryBLOG, where you can see Shawna's weekly post, as well as find links to others who are participating in their very own Project 52. I hope you'll enjoy going on this journey with me; maybe it will even inspire you to do a Project 52 of your own. If you do decide to join in, post a link to your blog in the comments, as well as on styleberryBLOG so that others can see what you're up to!

Because this is a project I hope to do for years to come, I'm going to start the inaugural year with a very broad theme. So I introduce to you, "Project 52: Our Family..."

{how we started the year}

Yes, the caption for this one is simple. I know it doesn't seem like I'm starting off on a very creative foot... but given the theme, I thought I would begin with a photo of our family and end with a photo of our family, to capture how much we've changed. Or stayed the same. Only time will tell...


  1. I love this idea. I would need a theme too. Going to think about it. But wait...I have to post by Sunday. Yikes! Time to get inspired!

  2. Check out styleberryBLOG. There are some links to other sites that are doing this; it helps with inspiration! There are a wide variety of themes. I needed a broad one or I would probably back myself into a corner at some point :) I hope you do it!!

  3. I’m linking you to my Project 52 that I just started at Hope you can link me as well!

  4. Thanks for linking up this year! Happy to have you as a part of the 2012 project 52 circle! *s
