Here are two of the scrapbook pages I finished last week. They are kind of plain and not up to par with what I see out there but it's the best I could do with them. OK, so I had made a goal of finishing one of my 50 some odd half-done scrapbook pages a day. I haven't done any in a week! Ugh! I did do a whole bunch in one day (New Years Day actually) and then haven't done it since. Now how am I going to finish this if I don't do it? LOL! Why is it so hard to do this? I enjoy it but the title and journaling is just so drudge work to me. I love cards because they are "done" - no thinking up a title or writing a story. However today I had about an hour and I got something badly needed done. I organized my cards! I now have 3 shoe box sized boxes full with them filed under Christmas, His Birthday, Her Birthday, Blank, etc. and I used my nice little Brother P-Touch label printer and printed labels on front of each box what was in it. Now when I need a card I can go right to it! I am a happy camper. I definitely have too many that are blank or hello type cards and not enough birthday. So organizing helped this too. I had bought a nice organizer but it is way too small and I surpassed it about a year ago, even with giving out cards!
I am so excited too, I pre-ordered the new Cuttlebug embossing folders that come out the end of this month! I can't wait, there are some great new ones! I just wish they would make the imprint a full 4.25 x 5.5. Maybe they will with the new ones. Off I go, dinner is coming out of the oven.
