Some Thoughts

 So I have been thinking about my approach on scrapbooking, and some tweaking that I want to do in the coming new year. I have gotten into the system of printing out all my photos on a monthly basis, then picking and choosing what I want to scrap. Then by the time that month rolls around for the next year, I either scrap the pictures, or send the pictures out to grandparents/great-grandparents in care packages. Which, all in all it is been an ok system for me. But, I don't really feel like I am telling a cohesive story like I really want to!
#1 I am not great at journaling, #2 By the time I get to some of my pictures I have forgotten some of the details anyways...
New approach- A project life type scrapbooking, weekly maybe, with layouts dispersed throughout. I think this will help with taking the pressure off of having that nagging feeling "I need to scrap all the pictures to stay caught up." 
Well see...May be more up front planning, but I think it will pay off in the long run.


  1. This is such an AWESOME post Val... amen girl!! I loveeeeeeeeee that quote!!!! I am gonna use that if it's okay with you! :):):):):):):):):):):)

  2. I need to get some organization on my scrapbooking this next year. It seems like I am always behind.

  3. I sure can relate.......I'm always trying to catch up, but it never happens! Sounds like a plan:)

  4. I am so far behind on my kid's scrapbooks so I admire your goals!

  5. I need a new plan too Val. I gotta come up with something good for the new year. :)
