Project 365

I’ve made sure two thousand and twelve will be another busy year for me. Just having a look at all of my resolutions, plans and goals for the year is proof! Something I wanted to start last year but gave up on the first day was doing a 365 project. I wanted to do a sketch a day to help me get back into drawing, (something i fell out of after art college odd illy enough) and it fell through. I remember trying to draw a wolf and getting annoyed because I was no good so I gave up!

After Christmas just passed, inbetween Stevens day and New years I spent a lot of time thinking of ideas. A photo a day came to mind but I didn’t want to clog my laptop up and I don’t have a full flikr account so that one went out the window. Then i stumbled upon an old photo whilst clearing my shelves out and saw that I had scratched some thoughts on to the photo and it was like a lightbulb moment for me, i’ll do that each day! So that’s the story how my 365 project came about! (I know this year it’s actually 366 but I prefer saying 365.) Here’s January 1st – 12th so far.

I have a nasty habit of collecting photos. Both online and physically. It started a few years ago whilst flicking through pretty websites, I would see a nice picture and save it to a album and it went from there. Before I switched laptops I went through this crazily stuffed folder and spring cleaned it, deleting a few hundred that I had already uploaded to my tumblr and then kept the rest. In college I started collecting pictures from the photography department. I would steal discarded photo’s from the waste bin and keep them in a folder in my bag for scrap booking. A lot of them are really random or ruined but I loved them. I liked not knowing the story behind the people in the pictures. So these (as well as some of my own ruined photos I had kept) all went into a box for my 365 where I take a photo of choice each day and scratch a thought or a favourite memory from that day into the photo and mark the bottom with 1/365. It’s going well and I’m really enjoying seeing them pile up!

Friday’s photo. Running through Cork to catch a train that was about to leave. It reads, ”Nearly (by a few seconds) missed the train. We ran so fast I thought my legs would give up & fall off.” I’m hoping to scan these in after each month and maybe start a 365 page on my Tumblr to put them all. I know these are going into they’re own separate scrapbook once the year is out! And what about any of you lovely readers? Are you doing a 365 project this year? XO
