Where did time go!


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!

  1. My husband puts all the photos from vacations online. We need some for a project I'm doing and found out he missed a trip to Hawaii. Hopefully he will deal with it soon.

  2. I'm a digital girl. Well, ok, I'm lazy and I like having my photos stored online or on disks instead of cluttering up my house. You know, that way I can fill it with fabric and yarn instead :)
    Enjoy the photo sorting and documenting

  4. I have periodically gone through my photos over the year and put them in regular albums but have always planned to make scrapbooks for each of my sons.........now with the digital age, as Nic up there said....there are not so many boxes filled with photos but those digital files can get tedious!...."someday"..........
