I absolutely love the Forever Day2Day project. It serves as a visual diary for me and my family and records events in our lives, no matter how big or small. Day2Day provides a place where I can record little things that may not be featured in my family or children’s albums. It’s where the seemingly insignificant things in life that would otherwise be forgotten are captured and remembered for years to come.
Day2Day is a project that, someday, hopefully my children can pass onto their children and so on. How wonderful would it be to have this type of visual diary from our ancestors in our hands to look back on? It may seem that things are mundane in our “Day2Day” life, but it’s the small things that make us who we are.
The Day2Day project has no rules. It’s all about what captures my eye at any given moment. I love that it has weekly themes; my brain now works to fit those themes into what I’m doing at any given moment of the day. I don’t always stick to the theme for each day of the week, though – sometimes, there’s something else that captures my eye that I just have to take a photograph of to include in my weekly page.
Over the years, I’ve heard of people who want to give up on Day2Day after they’ve missed taking a photo for a few days. Never give up! If you’ve missed a day, complete your weekly page with six, five, or four photos (or even just one)! Whatever you have is fine. There really are no rules – this is a project that is just for you. I’ve found that it’s helpful to have an alarm set on my phone for 5pm each day to prompt me to take a photo.
One of the benefits of taking a photo each day is how you improve your photography skills. Since way back in 2011, I’ve drastically changed how I take photos. Looking at objects from different angles and through different lighting and focus has given me a whole new perspective on taking photos. Arranging flat lays and styling photos can be quite gratifying, and playing with your camera and some props is really fun!
Through the social aspect of the Day2Day project, I also love seeing all the wonderful pages, photos, layouts, and journaling from other participants. We have an amazing group of peeps who I like to think of as the “Day2Day Gang.” We all support each other, welcome newbies, and encourage those that have dropped off for a few days and picked themselves back up to continue their Day2Day journey.
I get to see spectacular travel pictures, special family moments, adorable pet photos, and gorgeous scenery. I love seeing the support that we all have for each other. Congratulations to those who have nearly finished their 2017 books and are ready to order … I can’t wait to print mine!
This year, it’s been so fun creating the 2017 Day2Day Pre-Designed Books – I’ve been blown away by the support from everyone. If you’ve loved participating in the Day2Day project, please share it with your friends and family. If you’ve never participated in taking a photo a day, give it a try – you won’t regret it! So, with the end of 2017 fast approaching, I’m already saying, “bring on 2018!” And with 2018 fast approaching there will be a brand new set of Pre-Designed Books for 2018 in store tomorrow! All the work is done for you, drag and drop your photos in, add text and you’re done. Months, years, date stamps are all part of the design, so the work is done for you.
…. and the best news …. The brand new 2018 Day2Day Pre-Designed Books will be Forever’s Deal Of The Day for Friday 8th December! That’s 50% off each size for Friday 8th December!

With the new year fast approaching we have decided to create a closed group on Facebook that will ensure you can post your weekly pages in an environment devoted entirely to the Day2Day project, which will be the perfect place for our Day2Day community. No-one else will be able to see your layouts except those within the group. If you would like to become a member of the Forever Day2Day Project, please click HERE to register your request to join. We also encourage you to post your weekly pages on the pixels2Pages Facebook group if you’d like to share them with the p2P community.
