ohlife

If you have read my previous post, you know that for me 2013 is all about DOCUMENTing - whether that be scrapbooking,with particular focus on journaling, or Project Life which I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to get going on.

Possibly against my better judgement, because let's face it....I know me.  I have decided to delay actually starting my 2013 Project Life album.  Por Que?  Because I fell in love with the Olive Edition.  I have picked a close runner up, but my heart is TRULY set on the Olive Edition.  It was originally scheduled for late December, but got pushed back to January.  The latest estimates are saying the end of next week.  I am going to wait it out, bacause I am just in love!



So as not to fall completely behind and fail before I even get started, I am snapping pictures here and there throughout the day and last night, I stumbled upon the pure genius that is the website ohlife.  Each evening ohlife sends me an email prompt to document what went on during my day.  I can write a single sentence or I can write paragraphs.  No matter what path I chose, ohlife catalogs it in chronological order and it is all right there on their website for me to refer to anytime I like.  I had really planned to just jot notes down in a notebook or my planner each day....after all, I do much better with an actual planner that I have to write in rather than an electronic device to keep my on top of daily tasks.  I think for me, the huge draw to ohlife is that I won't have to keep up with random sheets of paper that I will invariably jot notes on AND the fact that they send me an email prompt each and every evening without fail to remind me to DOCUMENT what happened during my day - big or small.


I was in no way compensated for my plug of ohlife.  I just love what they do and thought I would share the site for anyone else that might want help organizing their thoughts for Project Life or whatever other type of journaling or memory keeping that you might enjoy.  For me, even though I am going to start out a bit behind this will be a huge help in getting me caught up and on the right track.

  1. You are going to have so much fun with your Project Life. I am doing my won thing again this year.
    My daughter shared an app for my iphone. I can write about my day, under the photo I took...if I took it with my iphone. If I used my regular camera I can just write in that date spot.
    I will have to check the site your recommended as I like to keep my options open ;)
