“Life ReLived” my yearlong project

1

Hello readers, I have been getting lots of e-mails and you all are wanting to know what Life ReLived actually is.. It is basically a more modern and more cleaner version of the old school scrapbooking. I have planned to make a digital as well as paper version of the scrapbook.

Through this project, I want to document my life through pics, mementos and many other things.. Its basically collection of moments from my life which I don’t want to forget which I am sharing in a simple yet meaningful way.

So how do I feel about this project and my approach after almost two months? The biggest thing I love about this coming album is that it really shows the progression of time. I am excited to see what it looks like at the end of the year. I am excited to start at the beginning and have in my hands a snapshot of 365 days in my life

I like that it is very low-pressure. If I don’t happen to take a photo on a particular day I am just grabbing a piece of paper collected from the mail, printed from online, etc., or substituting in a photo from the same time period (within two or three days is my limit).

In all, it’s a wonderful way to look back at the year and sparks so many great memories.

Life ReLived: The beginning…

In the past few months I had travelled a lot and had some great memories to cherish for lifetime.. But soon the memories were like forgotten. I love playing around with my photos which are not just some moments captured to remember but they are memories to be cherished. I felt that the happy moments which have past need to be some kind of organised and preserved..

 

I have been trying to figure out a simple strategy for myself relating to do a year long project where I am gonna document my life which i want to re-live.I’m focusing on my  daily life as a family. I’m looking at this project as a chance to tell small stories (the small stories that are essentially the big ones when you see them all together). I want to capture little details, conversations, memories.And the next year, 2012 being the last year of my school life I don’t want to forget any of the memories..
Photos & words & the stuff of life is what I am looking to collect and place inside this album.I am not stressing about taking a photo everyday.I am cool with, and looking forward to, adding in other pieces of life: notes, lists, mail,email, etc. Some weeks will be all photos and other weeks will be a mixture of the two.Think the thing that I am really appreciating about this project right now is that it feels laid back. It feels possible and fun.I am not trying to document every little thing. I am trying to capture the essence of the ways in which we live our lives from day to day. Our normal.

If you aren’t already playing along with similar kind of  project it’s never to late to begin. There’s no rule that says you need to begin in January.
