I should post

By Tara Zandra | February 20, 2007

I still haven’t edited pictures of our trip to American Girl so nothing to share yet. I’ve been spending a lot of my free time working on scrapbooking. I haven’t scrapped consistently in 2 years. I was so excited when Daisy was born because at least with one child I wouldn’t be behind. And I did totally scrap my pregnancy, and Daisy’s first month. Then I stopped. Everything. So it’s been 2 years and of course, that’s 2 more years I’m behind on Tabitha’s life. So since I started scrapping again last week, I’ve completed two- 2 page layouts for Daisy’s 1st birthday, a 1 page layout of Daisy with her uncle from when she was born, a 2 page layout of Tabitha’s 8th birthday and a 1 page layout of her 8th birthday. I’m trying something new in that I’m pre-planning my layouts. Usually I spend 2 hours on one layout and the first hour is deciding which colors to use. Now I’m choosing the colors for every layout at once and bagging the pictures and paper together as well as any embellishments. So when I’m ready to scrap, I just grab a pack and go. I’ve actually finished a two page layout in 45 minutes, that has never happened in my whole scrapbooking life. This new system is really working for me and as long as I can keep it up I should see some real progress. I need to order some albums, but I have other priorities right now (mainly hula stuff) so they’ll have to wait. Maybe I’ll treat myself for my birthday. I need to take pics of my layouts to put on my scrapbooking webpage, we’ll see if I can get that done any time soon. Oh, if you go look at that page, be aware that when it says “Most recent layouts” those were the ones I completed 2 years ago, not last week. New layouts are there, minus one that doesn’t have a title yet.

    Aww, I really like the one of Daisy’s birthday! They’re all good, but that one’s my favorite. :)
