This year I’ll be participating in The 100 Days Project which is simply defined as “a free, global art project that anyone can participate in.” The project starts April 3 and ends July 11. My plan is to complete 100 Days of Memory Keeping…
HOW TO PARTICIPATE. If you’re interested in this project you start by choosing an action that you’ll do for 100 days. Although the definition mentions ‘art’ I’ve seen all sorts of projects done over the past few years that I’ve followed along. So you can do 100 days of writing or 100 days of knitting or 100 days of running or 100 days of meditating. It’s really up to you!
100 Days of Memory Keeping
I’ve talked a lot about memory keeping around here but let’s get real for a minute. Since having my first baby 4 years ago, I’ve found myself about 2 years behind on memory keeping/scrapbooking and I’m really struggling to get caught up. That may not seem like a big deal, but because these years encompass the first years of my kiddos lives, I’m feeling the urge to record these memories before I start to forget all the little things.
THE PLAN. My goal is to work on my Project Life album (which I definitely consider a creative/art-ish endeavor) every day for 100 days. I’m hoping that this project will push me to get completely caught up with my family memory books by July 11!
I recently downloaded the Project Life app and although there are some things I’m not loving about it, it is allowing me to consistently work on the album without having to jump on a computer. This is huge.
So maybe you’ll pick a project of your own and consider joining in on the challenge!

I love this post, and I love the idea of this scrapbooking/memory keeping for 100 days. I always get interested in journaling and similar things but then I don’t do it. Especially if it’s a book I have to write in every single night or a few times a week.
As many pretty journals and pens and pencils as I own, I feel that doing something where I use my phone/online will be easier for me to keep up with.
Although I have to admit I believe very soon the idea of writing in a journal, photo albums, etc. will be very archaic and laughed at.
Maybe my children’s children – my great grandchildren will be keeping hand written journals and photo albums because it is “retro“ LOL
Thanks again for a great post. I love this website
