December Photo Project 2008

Posted on Nov 25, 2008 at 10:34 AM in December Photo Project, Photography

December 2008 Photo Project

The December Photo Project is back for the fourth year!

Come one, come all. Grab your cameras and join me in a photography challenge for the first 25 days of December. Snap a picture each day and show the world what you’re looking at! Drop a comment on the Prairie Box or email me privately, and we’ll list your blog under a December Photo Project heading off to the right once December rolls around.

The excitement begins December 1. Join us! (And stayed tuned for more info about a Flickr Pool… We might use the same one from last year or perhaps I’ll create a new one.)


  1. Bethany Nov 25, 2008 9:41 AM

    Yes! I am so in. Can’t wait!

  2. Renae Nov 25, 2008 9:55 AM

    I’m in.

  3. charity Nov 25, 2008 10:13 AM

    yay! love DPP! (i’ll put them on the photoblog)

  4. Rebecca Nov 25, 2008 10:50 AM

    Oooh. Check out the new header created by my fabulous husband! You can imbed the image in a blog post or sidebar if you’d like.

  5. bobw Nov 25, 2008 11:26 AM

    with the baby arriving soon, you can count me in. I’ll do my best at least.

  6. bobw Nov 25, 2008 11:27 AM

    oh and love the header. jeremy rox.

  7. Andy P Nov 25, 2008 11:43 AM

    Count me in as well.

  8. Brook Nov 25, 2008 12:02 PM

    I wish I had a camera. :(

  9. Jeannette Nov 25, 2008 12:37 PM

    Yay! I’m in!! (loving the header, too! can we get a badge for our blogs?) I was hoping we were going to do it again.

  10. Megan Nov 25, 2008 3:26 PM

    Yay! I was thinking about this the other day. My humble little Canon PowerShot A540 and I are in!

  11. Kristin Nov 25, 2008 4:20 PM

    I’m so ready! Is it alright if I ask a few friends if they want to participate? :)

  12. Rebecca Nov 25, 2008 5:13 PM

    Kris, yes, definitely you can ask your buddies to join! Megan’s already posted about the DPP on her blog (thanks, Megan)–I figure the more, the merrier!

    Diber, I’ll get a badge up to post on your sidebar. Stay tuned…

  13. Lindsey Nov 25, 2008 7:46 PM

    Wow, it’s totally official! And I am so in. I’m all about the blog badge too–in fact, if you upload this DPP picture to Flickr, I’ll use that. It’s so pretty!

  14. Monica Nov 25, 2008 7:46 PM

    I was hoping you’d do this again! I know my pix won’t be up to the caliber of yours – but I’d love to participate!! :)

  15. Keri Nov 25, 2008 8:33 PM

    I’m new to this but it sounds interesting. I’ll give it a go!

  16. Catherine Nov 25, 2008 8:41 PM

    Hi Rebecca, I found you via Megan’s. What a great idea! I’d love to join in – thanks for hosting!

  17. kristen Nov 26, 2008 8:24 AM

    I’m in!

  18. Jamie Nov 27, 2008 6:02 AM

    me too! i’m excited!!

  19. Renae Nov 28, 2008 11:38 AM

    Okay, I’m signing Needs More Butter up too. I’ll take responsibility, but I won’t refuse help. :)

  20. Erin Nov 28, 2008 7:59 PM

    Sign me up!

  21. Sarah B. Nov 28, 2008 11:18 PM

    Still considering the DPP. Can I do it? Will it drive me to sheer madness? (Perhaps.) Hmmm…it sure it tempting, but do I really need another commitment, albeit, no matter how small? Questions, questions. :)

  22. Anna Nov 29, 2008 1:09 AM

    I’m in! After enjoying it via others’ blogs the last few years, I’m excited to have a blog and participate myself!

  23. Haley Nov 29, 2008 12:50 PM

    I am in. I can’t promise that most of the pictures won’t be of my baby, though.

  24. Jenni Nov 29, 2008 8:47 PM

    I found you through Haley’s blog. This is a great way to keep up with the holiday for my daughter!

  25. daniel Nov 29, 2008 8:59 PM

    i’m a friend of haley’s, and i’m in!

  26. Jen Nov 29, 2008 9:53 PM

    If you talked Kerri into it, I’ll do it too. I guess.

  27. Melissa Nov 29, 2008 11:36 PM

    I’m gonna throw my camera in the ring. Like Haley, I can’t promise much non-baby variety, but I know that it’ll be a great way to chronicle the holidays.
    Thanks for hosting this!

  28. Becky Nov 29, 2008 11:53 PM

    This sounds like so much fun! I am in.

  29. Elizabeth Nov 30, 2008 7:43 AM

    I kept changing my mind, but I guess I’m in for my second year of the DPP.

  30. ReneeW Nov 30, 2008 8:15 AM

    I may fail miserably, but I’m in for this year. Now to convince Ben….

  31. Shawna Foster Nov 30, 2008 8:27 AM

    Kristin told me about this – sounds fun! Count me in.

  32. Rebecca Nov 30, 2008 9:27 AM

    Welcome, those of you who are new to this site! I’m thrilled you’ve clicked over from a friend’s blog. We have a great crowd this year and I’m really excited to see the month of December through your camera lenses!

    Tomorrow is December 1. And guess what? I have my Powershot back. Canon fixed it FOR FREE and I received it in the mail last week. Three cheers for a familiar camera to work with during DPP. : )

  33. Rachelle Nov 30, 2008 12:22 PM

    I just saw this on Elizabeth’s blog and it looks like fun. Count me in.

  34. Rhiannon Nov 30, 2008 4:00 PM

    I’m in through my blog.

  35. Lori Nov 30, 2008 7:06 PM


    I think I’ll have to do this too. :)

  36. christy Nov 30, 2008 7:32 PM

    I, too, found out about this from Kristin, and I’d like to give it a shot! Thanks for letting me join in.

  37. Always, Alli | The Finish Line Nov 30, 2008 8:18 PM

    [...] Thanks for sticking with me this month, glad to get back into a posting groove. Looking forward to December and participating in The December Photo Project 2008. [...]

  38. Alissa Nov 30, 2008 9:30 PM

    I’ll jump in on this one:) I’m doing Project 366 already, but I’d love to share my December pictures with you all:)

  39. amy Nov 30, 2008 10:17 PM

    Cool idea! Kristin told me about it – count me in!

  40. Sarah B. Nov 30, 2008 10:37 PM

    Rebecca–just look at you! What a crowd your project has generated this year!! Woot! I just found out from my friend, Becky, who linked to your blog from Megan D. and is doing the DPP. She e-mailed me tonite, saying, “Who is Rebecca Tredway?” Because she saw my blog linked from yours and wondered if I knew you in person. And of course, I was all, “Well, Rebecca’s this really *awesome* gal that I would do just about anything for, love her to pieces.” :)

    As far as me in the DPP, I think I’m a no as of now. But who knows, maybe I’ll change my mind before tomorrow. Regardless, I’ll greatly look forward to viewing yours and everyone else’s pics. Okay, I’m off to eat something! Happy shooting (pictures, that is)!

  41. Rebecca Nov 30, 2008 10:41 PM

    Sarah, I think you should take pictures of food. Wouldn’t that be perfect for your blog? Food pics, plus one every so often of Calvin, and I’d be a happy camper.

    I need to drop a comment on Becky’s blog (hi, Becky!) because clearly we’ve been living in slightly alternate universes. That seems to happen with the ole St. Louis connection… Very very odd.

  42. Alli Dec 1, 2008 7:06 AM

    I’m so excited to so this again! Happy December 1st!

  43. Linds Dec 1, 2008 8:01 AM

    This sounds like fun! I’m in!

  44. Lori Dec 1, 2008 8:16 AM

    I’m in with views from Tokyo.

  45. Erica Dec 1, 2008 8:59 AM

    I’m a friend of Jeannette’s and have been enjoying her December photo posts for years– I’m finally joining in!

  46. Alisa Dec 1, 2008 9:51 AM

    I’m in! I like taking pics so this is perfect! Thanks!

  47. Anita Dec 1, 2008 10:25 AM

    Count me in…this is just what I need to get my mojo back!

  48. Dawn Dec 1, 2008 10:27 AM

    I found this through The Homespun Heart blog site.

    I would love to participate. I will try to post a pic everyday or at least close.

    This will be fun.
    Have a Blessed day,

  49. Kelly Dec 1, 2008 10:48 AM

  50. Amy Dec 1, 2008 11:05 AM

  51. Lisa Dec 1, 2008 11:38 AM

    Well, better late then never! This sounds like fun! I’m going to give it a try and hope for the best. Heard about it from Alli by following her comment on BP Blogs.

  58. Tammy Dec 1, 2008 7:18 PM

    1st year for me – sounds like fun!

  59. Jonesey Dec 1, 2008 8:07 PM

    Hi! I remember this last year from Jeannette’s blog and I want to do it, too! How fun and thanks for hosting!

  63. Always, Alli | Getting started Dec 1, 2008 8:57 PM

  69. Amber Dec 1, 2008 11:27 PM

    I’ll give it a try this year!

  70. alina Dec 1, 2008 11:51 PM

    I’m on board and I am so excited (and also a little nervous about the commitment).

  71. Michele Dec 1, 2008 11:53 PM

    I’ll give it a try! I’m a day late though! So I’ll be posting to pics today.

  72. Puna Dec 2, 2008 5:12 AM

    Heard about this from Alina- and I wanna play too! How fun! I’m a day late to sign up, but I did post a pic yesterday. Does that still count??

  75. Jamie Dec 2, 2008 8:45 AM

    Is it too late to join? I need an excuse to pick up my camera every day… it has been very lonely, spending weeks at a time in the camera bag.

  76. Nikki Dec 2, 2008 9:14 AM

    Here via Ellen @ stranger — thought I’d give it a whirl.

  77. Kristy Dec 2, 2008 9:42 AM

    Great idea! I’m in!

  78. Beth Dec 2, 2008 10:16 AM

    First timer here but this will help Dec go by before we get to head home for the holidays!

  79. Clare Dec 2, 2008 11:32 AM

    Is it too late to be listed?! I started today! This is such an awesome way to spice up the blog without spending too much time on it during this crazy season!

  80. Valerie Dec 2, 2008 12:52 PM

    This sounds fun!

  81. Jenny Dec 2, 2008 1:30 PM

    I’m in — not with a blog, but just on flickr.

    (Charity’s sister-in-law’s, former roommate’s sister)

  82. angela Dec 2, 2008 1:53 PM

    I am joining a little late but I love to take pictures and I am up for the challenge!

    Can I still join?

  88. Jill Dec 2, 2008 5:14 PM

    I’m in! What a great idea!

  90. Angela Dec 2, 2008 5:58 PM

    A day late, but I’m in! I’ve been itching to use my camera more and this is the perfect motivation.

  91. Danny Douglas Dec 2, 2008 6:31 PM

    Puna made me do it! I’m a couple of days late but I am in.

  92. Kristen Dec 2, 2008 9:06 PM

    I’m stoked. I’m two days late…better late than never right?

  93. Daniel Sundin Dec 2, 2008 9:12 PM is in.

    -Daniel, Ginette, and Dayla

  94. Laura Dec 2, 2008 9:14 PM


    My name is Laura. I am a friend of Kristin’s. Could you please add me on to DPP?

    Thanks much,

  95. Megan Gaff Dec 2, 2008 9:53 PM

    Hi if it’s not to late. I’d love to try this and be included in your link! sounds like fun!

  96. Bret Dec 3, 2008 12:54 AM

    Okay, I’m in. I saw someone else taking a go at this with their Canon Powershot, which boosted my confidence enough to write this sentence.

  97. Dottie Dec 3, 2008 1:13 AM

    I am in!

  98. DeMo Dec 3, 2008 11:55 AM

    New blog! I’m going to try for this. Maybe having that purty badge will help inspire me! A little late, but I’ll make up for that.

  99. Angela Dec 3, 2008 11:58 AM

    I’m a little late but I’m joining in, how fun!


  100. abbey Dec 3, 2008 2:39 PM

    I want to play! I want to play!
    I need some inspiration!

  101. Kristin Dec 3, 2008 4:30 PM

    This is Laura’s blog address. When I clicked the link on your blog, it had a www in front so it wouldn’t recognize it. :)

  102. Laurie Dec 3, 2008 4:33 PM

    I love this idea! I will enjoy looking at everyone’s photos…and seeing life through their eyes…

  103. Laurie Dec 3, 2008 4:39 PM

    Ok, I think I was supposed to include my blog before, but I didn’t….oops…

  104. Jodi Dec 3, 2008 6:30 PM

    Late to join, but I am in. :)

  105. Laura Monclair Dec 3, 2008 8:00 PM

    I am already on the list for DPP, but my URL was entered with a “www.” that should not be there, which is making access to my journal inaccessible. Could you fix it please?

    Thanks much,

  106. Rebecca Dec 3, 2008 9:15 PM

    Thanks, Laura! Problem fixed.

  107. Aubrey Tell Dec 3, 2008 10:23 PM

    So my slacker self finally signed up. Thanks for hosting this again! And also thanks for your sweet comment – as I said, it is wonderful to be prayed for.

  108. Jill Dec 3, 2008 10:56 PM

    Either I gave you my blog address wrong, or you missed a letter–it’s

    I love looking at everyone’s photos!

  109. Jessica Robins Dec 3, 2008 11:01 PM

    The ULTIMATE photo blog. One picture per day every day this year, and it’s a leap year. Oh yeah, getting just December (the end of my blog) will be a piece of cake. :-) Fun!

  110. Deea Dec 4, 2008 11:49 AM

    Can I still join in even though I won’t be doing the whole month?

  111. Heather Dec 4, 2008 2:41 PM

    I know I am 4 days late, but would like to join!

  112. Roxanne Dec 4, 2008 3:04 PM

    Please add me too. I started Dec 1, but I’m shy.

  120. Amy and Stacy Dec 7, 2008 7:46 PM

    I share a photo-of-the-day blog with my sister-in-law where we choose a theme for a month and both post our pictures together. Lots of fun! We’ve had a lull recently because of a pregnancy and a new baby and your theme was enough to inpsire us and get us blogging again. We’re having a blast with it!

  121. Michelle Dec 7, 2008 11:46 PM

    I’m so in! Rebecca, could you go back and delete my previous comment with my full last name? Thanks.

  122. Roxanne Dec 8, 2008 6:10 AM

    I signed up last week but my I can’t find my name on the roster. I have been posting every day on my blog. Please add me : )
    Thanks for doing this. I am really enjoying it!
