Words I’ve never uttered

I’m almost caught up.


Everything is done for 2012 except for a couple of pages which need journaling.

All my 2013 pictures are in photo pocket pages.  I have to add cards, embellish and journal, which I plan to work on over the next while.  I’m going to clean up the last of my to-do list – engagement story, pregnancy month-by-month and a couple of pictures to reorganize in Miss A’s first year album.  I have a 12×12 layout I want to do of a picture with some of my best girlfriends.  I might go back and embellish some of my 2011 and 2012 pages since I’m going to have the time.

My spring cleaning is halfway done – I’ve sorted my pocket pages and stored designs I’m less likely to use.  Stickers and embellishments have been purged, and most of my paints went into the garbage.  I’m holding off on going through my kits until after I’m done my 2013 pages to see if I’m still using the same few kits.

I’ll print out  my 2014 to date pictures soon – I feel like there should be a Costco print sale coming up.  They’re going to go straight into pocket pages but I won’t do much with them.  If I get too ahead of the game, I won’t have anything to work on at my scrapbooking weekend in the fall!

So what will I work on?  This is a very strange feeling!

I’ve taken a few online classes – well, I’ve printed everything out anyway.  This will be a great time to continue working on those.  I’ve got Project Real Life, Project Life Lessons, a Silhouette and two Photoshop classes, so that will keep me busy!

My parents did a Mediterranean cruise a couple of years ago and my mom really wants to get her pictures off her computer.  I promised her I’d help her either design an online photobook or go through and select pictures to print and make her a scrapbook.   They’re going to be living with us for the next couple of months so that’ll be a good way to spend some of our evenings.

Once my parents move and get their stuff out of storage, I know my mom has boxes upon boxes of photos that aren’t in any order.  I also promised I’d help her sort those and get them into photo albums.  I’m sure they also have heritage photos from both my grandmas, so I’d love to do something with those.
