Cover to cover














I signed up for Shimelle's new class which started yesterday and it certainly looks like it will be relevant and very useful to me.....
Prompt 1.
Take a photo that helps describe your current status with scrapbooking. You might have dozens and dozens of albums. You might have two. You might be completely happy with your albums. You might have a big stack and no books or ideas on where things should go. Share your photo (and more details if you would like) with us either by posting on the forum or writing a blog post.
Hmm - yes well, this immedialtely got the old 'oh my god my albums are such a mess' feeling and a few hurrrumphs from me- but as always that is something that I never seem to organise (me not being one of these really uber tidy and organised peeps)
Dare I take photos of my albums? really? but they are all in odd places and not lined up on a shelf with labels and yes they have no structure whatsoever- just layouts slipped in as and when I did them
some are in the cupboard with the wool stash sandwiching a 'William and Kate' wedding teddy that Dad and I got when we went to Somerset as himself is not keen on teddies being on show in the lounge!

 
and there are two odd ones on the very top of the unit in my craft room 
and yes.....I have a stack of layouts waiting to be put into albums 
So I definitely think Shimelle's class is going to be good for me..off to think about condensing those photos now!

This made me smile! As someone with definite OCD tendencies I'm quite anal about organisation! My albums do sit on shelves, but I add my LO's as I do them, so my albums are not in any chronological order other than the date the LO's were done! I do also have specific mini books for special events & these are kept in a basket that is easily dipped into! Enjoy this class & I'll look forward to reading about your 'progress'!! :D

That's a very inviting looking stack! I'd love a flip through..

I have just done prompt 2 and reduced the photos on my hard drive (from the beginning of the year)from 500 to 223!

It's always fun to see where others are up to - sometimes it makes me feel better about my own albums and stacks of layouts, sometimes it makes me feel worse....

It's great to see I'm not the only one who finds it hard to be organised! Hope you enjoy the class.
