I've watched Julie's lovely project, My Month In Numbers, with much interest for some time now. I've also very much enjoyed seeing the posts of the many of you who join in and play along. What a fab way to summarise some of the happenings and details, big and little, major and minor, of each month! And yes, I've often thought of having a go myself - but somehow it never quite happened.
I think the main difference now is that I'm doing Project Life. Knowing what my memory is like, I've been keeping quite a detailed diary every day - a summary of the day kind of diary rather than a deep and meaningful thoughts kind of diary - and while most of that detail doesn't make it into Project Life (doesn't need to!) it has indeed been an invaluable prompt for me when I come to put together my PL pages. And, of course, it meant that I had a lot of notes to refer to when I thought about having a go at summarising my month in numbers! :)
I've created a 6x12" page and added a handdrawn frame (idea totally lifted from Ali Edwards' lovely work - mine is nowhere near as lovely, since my handwriting is - um - nowhere near as lovely....) I've then used my colourful Promarkers to keep adding to the list until I ran out of space! (You should be able to enlarge the photos by clicking on them if you want to be able to read them better.)
I didn't realise, until I went through my notes, that I'd actually managed to read 18 books last month.
I didn't realise, until I went through my Twitter account, that I'd actually managed to tweet 110 times last month.
I did realise that I'd watched Les Miserables twice, gotten rid of my crutches, and tried 5 new recipes, but it was nice to highlight those further on this page :)
The plan is that I'll add this in a 6x12" protector right into my Project Life - and I most sincerely hope I'll keep up with it and have such a page to add for each month right through the year! Many thanks Julie for inspiring me by sharing your own post each month, and many, many thanks for inspiring me to finally take part myself - the mathematician in me loves seeing all these numbers, the memory-keeper in me is pleased with the record of our month, the scrapbooker in me welcomes this addition to Project Life, and the joiner-inner in me is chuffed to be taking part along with so many blog friends! ;)
