Hi Everyone,
I promise I have not dropped off the face of the earth, ok well maybe for a little while. I had all intentions of posting once a day for a year and we all see how that went. I do have good news though, I am going to be starting a new series (that doesn't require a post everyday). The series is going to be called Project Life: Enjoying the Moments. I am going to be starting a Project Life scrapbook, this is something I have wanted to do for awhile now and I have finally ordered it. Whoo! As soon as it comes in I will be posting about it and we will get started.

Why did I choose Project Life?
     I chose to do Project Life becuse I love how simple it is. I was a traditional scrapbooker for most of my life. I have every tool anyone could ever need or want and I have more paper, glitter, markers, and adhesive then anyone could ever use. That is all good and the traditional scrabooks that I do have I love and cherish. They sit on my coffee table as an everyday fixture and I look at them quite a bit. So what is the problem you ask? My last layout was in 2005! That is 7 years ago and I don't know about you but my life has not stopped because I have not added to my scrapbook. In fact I have had LOTS of life happen that I feel guilty that I have not preserved. I am not one to just put pictures in an album and be done with it. I have to have everything perfect and if that means spending a day on a layout so be it. I just don't have that kind of now. I want to have time to live my life without feeling guilty that I am taking time away from friends and family. Now with Project Life I can sit down once a week and scrapbook my whole week. The layout is the ssame from week to week; I just have to add text and pictures. Say I went to a wedding or I was sick and didn't do anything, it doesn't matter. Whatever I did that week was my life and it deserves to be remembered because doing the laundry is just a much a part of my life as going on vacation. It's the moments that make me, me and whether it's a big event or just normal everyday things it is who I am and it deserves to be remembered. 
So there is an overview of what is to come with Alley Cats Corner. I hope you are as excited about it as I am.

Happy Crafting,
Alley Cat
