I finally made the decision to jump into Project Life - albeit a couple (ok, several) weeks late. I had been debating it for awhile and decided to hold off and not purchase any materials. Over the first several weeks of January, and on into February, I read and surfed several blogs that I like to read, and read over different bloggers' takes on Project Life. I pretty much read nothing but good things about it.
So I decided to make the jump. I ordered the page protectors (these and these), some 2"x2" slot page protectors and a blank binder. Typically, I am all about DIY mini-book making, and using found (and inexpensive) elements. I thought through it a lot and decided that I would incorporate a lot of my own found (and inexpensive ;)) elements. I made my own journaling cards (I have some packs available here in my shop) and also purchased a custom-made set from Xenia of saturdayAMvintage. Additionally, I purchased this set from the Project Life line.
So, I'm just getting started. A little late. But getting started nonetheless. I read on a blog that it's better to get started a couple weeks late in 2012 than to wish I had started a couple weeks late when the end of 2012 rolls around. I'm also glad that this will fulfill one of my 2012 Goals of keeping a monthly album for my family. I do also plan on continuing to create mini-albums of different events and time spans, this will not take the place of that :)
It's a pretty big commitment. I'm a little nervous about it, to be honest :) But excited. Super excited.
