Lately I have been tackling those projects left for *another day* ... you know, the ones that you had great intentions to finish but never actually did.
To start: My craft room has seen a lot of sewing lately, but almost NO papercrafting. It's really taken a backseat to my sewing, which is totally fun but the albums are looking bare and I promised myself I would realistically use them, thus justifying my purchase. Plus, I do enjoy looking back at them.
I just don't need shelves and shelves of them.
Plus, storing things is not something I enjoy doing.
I could never be a hoarder, I purge whenever I feel like clutter is creeping in on me.
So I got back on it this afternoon as the kids slept.
I like that it doesn't need to be over complicated or anything. It's simply DOING it rather than losing the memories that makes me happy. I still need to sort through my facebook posts to get some more of the cute things lily says. We call them lily-isms and I commonly post them.
Quick backgrounds& october afternoon cut outs make for easy work.
& of course there's washi tape involved. Is it considered scrapbooking without it? oh probably somewhere. Around this house, they go hand in hand.
What a horribly blurry photo, but I was quickly snapping them on my cell phone... : /
I feel a bit relieved now that I know I have the bulk of it done. Maybe 3 more photos that are on order to add and the quotes.. touch up's will continue until May when we switch to her 5 yr old book!
This is the second year I've used this book purchased on etsy from
Spunk&love. They're a really nice quality, the owner has always been prompt with my order, and you can have them personalized with your child's age, name, or a cute animal.
