It's good to be back!
Do you put your finished projects in albums right away? Do you have a system?
I'm one of those people that lets the projects pile up to crazy heights before I put them in books. I never used to be that way. When I first started scrapbooking I would only work chronologically, filling in 2 separate albums as I went; one for my daughter and one for my son, one for each year. Here's a glimpse...(circa 2005-06)
Well, last week I couldn't take it anymore. I spent a chunk of the long weekend coming up with a system and putting it into effect. I filled up 8 new American Crafts d-ring album binders - and now need to pick up about 4 more and I'll feel like I'm in a good place. I broke them down into the following categories: Winter/Spring, Fall/Halloween, Summer, About Me, Dancing/Recitals, Christmas, School & Home/Places in NJ. I'm sure I will add as I go along. The Summer & Fall books are already at capacity and will need to be broken down by a range of years so I can start fresh books. As far as I can tell so far, this system is going to work. The cool thing about a project like this is I am now able to see where the information gaps are. I also learned that despite not liking to scrap about myself, or make pages featuring me, I do it a lot more than I thought I did! Exhibit A: The 'About Me' book...
Moving along...I'm working on a few other projects, too, but nothing I can share at the moment. I did get this little baby in the mail and I'm dying to work with it:
