I totally failed in my attempt to do the Documented Life Project last year. In my quest in being brave and opening up an Etsy shop, I was busy with keeping stock in the shop while working a full time job, which left little time for play. This year I’m making time for things that I love and things that I enjoy and the Documented Life Project is definitely one of those things. The cost to join is $12 and you can buy the basic supplies on the site as well (or just use what you have).
The format is a bit different this year, using a small binder and print outs for calendars. I really like the chunky feel of it with all the added pieces, colorful art cards, and lots of lists. They are calling it an un-Planner because there really is no set way to do anything…you can make it like you want and add whatever you want.
There is monthly theme and a weekly challenge to incorporate into the u-planner, which gives some direction, but you are free to fly with what works for you. I love that.
Here is what I started with (I did purchase the kit.)
I started by painting the outside of the binder, printed out the calendar pages, and worked on the challenges for the past 2 weeks. I love how there is a bit of color here and there. You can do as much as you want or as little, which works for me with my busy schedule.
