Looks like some great ideas brewing already! Barb's out of town for a little while, so in her absence, I'll be your unofficial hostess!
Some photo ideas to get us started...
- Family members and activities (of course!)
- Holidays and seasonal events
- Celebrations: birthdays, anniversaries, graduations
- School activities
- Sports activities
- Locations: it would be cool to photograph your house from the same vantage point each month, to see how the yard changes through the year
- Vacations, weekend trips, quick-getaways, day trips
- Extended family: Aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, inlaws, etc.
- Special occasions
You might want to start a Project 12 folder on your computer, to stash your photos in. You might even divide them up with subfolders for each month, especially if you're going to be taking LOTS of pictures. For those who won't be shooting quite so many, one folder may be fine.
And hey, don't forget to keep some notes for journaling, too. You can do that on a separate document, or you can use the File Info feature to store the notes right in your image file... (think of it as the digital equivalent of writing on the back of a photograph! ) For more info on that, click here for Elements instructions and click here for Photoshop instructions.
I'm really looking forward to this project... hope you are too!

You're always so organized, Jan! Those are awesome ideas and I love the idea of setting up a folder to stash photos in!

Great idea. I did P365 in 2009, and it's such a huge undertaking and easy to give up after investing so much time. P12 is so much more achievable and yet still hitting the points of the year you want to hit. Good luck to participants.

You can count me in, too! I did 365/2009 untill October of that year and then missed several days, so I made it a 12/2009. And it has become a special book! (Would like to show it but I don't know anymore who to credit for all the papers and elements, but you can see it on my blog, didn't receive Jan's tip by then :-). 2010 will be a potpourri, but I for 2011 I am with you!
Sure we can! :-)

Just finished reading all the comments and ideas and I'm looking forward to the challenge. Wishing everyone success. We're helping my SIL and BIL celebrate a 60th anniversary this weekend so I have something for January.Ruth

I really love this idea ... I did think about doing one a day but just know that would be too much for me.
So this is perfect ... and I just got a new Canon Speedlight (the 580EX II) so it will give me a chance to try it out

Great idea! I was contemplating the 365, but already wondering if I can do it. This is definitely doable!

A photo a day is just too much for me so will be happy to give this a go. Surely I will be able to do one layout a month! LOL
