In the summer of 2006 Mr.P and I moved in together and that is the day when I stopped putting pictures into albums or so it seems!
I love scrapbooking. I am nowhere near good at it, but I really enjoying buying all the little doodads and the funky paper. Sounds like my quilting habits doesn’t it..LOL
I know with scrapbooking its suppose to be one or three pictures on a page with lots in embellishments, but when you have 2000 pictures from a vacation like our honeymoon that just isn’t going to work. I never know where to start and then I get overwhelmed by doing something wrong or heaven forbids forgetting to use all the doodads I bought since I cannot remember where I put them all...LOL
So where does that leave me..well it leaves me in 2013 with a few thousand pictures that have been sitting around since 2006!! I decided this week that I need to do something with them so I started sorting pictures. I decided to do themes now all the major vacation pictures are going to have their own album, but I needed to break down everything else. So I have sorted into Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Birthdays, Garden/house, Pets and other...LOL
Right now I am working on Christmas. I Have 2005, 2006, 2007, 2011, 2012 to work with and the missing 3 years are still on the computer. I guess we didn’t get our pictures developed for 3 years..what the heck! I have been working on it for 2 days now and have 4 pages and that is with some self editing!
I am trying to be creative, but for the most part every page is just one big collage of as many pics and I can fit. I just have to learn to be okay with that, right! Better to have them in the album and not be supper creative than have them all sitting in a box!
